Hello everyone. Since I’m living on my boat in self-exile because I am the worst a man can be today, white, over 60, lung cancer, Chronic Pulmonary Obstruction Disease, nearly losing a battle with influenza-A over Christmas, and eking along on CPP Disability, I’ve been keeping a timeline of all the goings on as of late with the coronavirus. Timeline will be ongoing until further notice, and will be regularly updated when new info comes down the pike. Scroll to bottom for latest. (June 8th 2020) Thanks much.

Be well and remember they have not yet restricted being rational and calm, or laughter and hope.
June 13th, 2012 a 60-year-old Saudi man was admitted to a private hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, with a 7-day history of fever, cough, expectoration, and shortness of breath. He had no history of cardiopulmonary or renal disease, was receiving no long-term medications, and did not smoke.
May 4th, 2013, a sample of this Saudi SARS (aka novel coronavirus) from the very first Saudi patient arrived in Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in Winnipeg, the only level-4 facility equipped to handle the world’s deadliest diseases, via Ron Fouchier of Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, Netherlands, who sequenced the virus sample.
Mar. 27th, 2018: The US State Department received two cables from the US Embassy in Wuhan, China in 2018. One of the officials was Rick Switzer, the embassy’s counsellor of environment, science, technology and health, warning of inadequate safety at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), which had become China’s first laboratory to achieve the highest level of international bio-research safety (BSL-4) in 2015. The last of the visits, which occurred on March 27, 2018, was documented on WIV’s website and subsequently scrubbed. Switzer and consul general at the Wuhan embassy Jamison Fouss took the unusual step of repeatedly visiting the bio-lab which they felt were conducting “risky studies” on bat coronaviruses, and their “potential human transmission represented a risk of a new SARS-like pandemic.” During interactions with scientists at the WIV laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory.
As the cable noted, the U.S. visitors met with Shi Zhengli, the head of the research project, who had been publishing studies related to bat coronaviruses for many years. Though the research was aimed at preventing the next SARS-like pandemic “by anticipating how it might emerge,” back in 2015, many scientists were already questioning whether Shi’s team was taking unnecessary risks.
In November 2017, just before the US officials’ first visit, Shi’s team had published research showing that horseshoe bats they had collected from a cave in Yunnan province were very likely from the same bat population that spawned the SARS coronavirus in 2003. Interestingly, the Chinese researchers were receiving assistance from the Galveston National Laboratory at the University of Texas Medical Branch, and other US organizations.
The cables also warned that the researchers also showed that various SARS-like coronaviruses can interact with ACE2, the human receptor identified for SARS-coronavirus. This finding strongly suggests that SARS-like coronaviruses from bats can be transmitted to humans to cause SARS-like diseases.
And while many today are saying there is no evidence that COVID-19 was engineered, and that consensus is that it came from animals, Xiao Qiang, a research scientist at UC Berkeley, rationally stated “that is not the same as saying it didn’t come from a lab, which spent years testing bat coronaviruses in animals.”
Meanwhile, there were and are, similar concerns about the nearby Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention Lab – a level 2 bio-security facility. The lab is located roughly 274 meters from the seafood market which accounted for roughly half of the initial cases of Covid. It has since been proven that the market did not sell bats, indeed the first known patient had no known connection to the market. That said, there’s nothing to say that an employee from this lab didn’t accidentally infect themselves and go shopping for meat during the virus’s well known asymptomatic incubation period.
May 30th, 2018, Trump signs the Trickett Wendler, Frank Mongiello, Jordan McLinn and Matthew Bellina Right to Try Act. This law is another way for patients who have been diagnosed with life-threatening diseases or conditions who have tried all approved treatment options and who are unable to participate in a clinical trial to access certain unapproved treatments.
Late 2018, the first commercial launches of the fifth generation of mobile networks. Today virtually every telecommunication service provider in the developed world is upgrading its infrastructure to offer 5G functionality. 5G communication requires the use of communications devices (mostly mobile phones) designed to support the technology. While many 5G pundits contend that the new network generates radio-frequency radiation that can damage DNA and lead to cancer; cause oxidative damage that can cause premature aging; disrupt cell metabolism; and potentially lead to other diseases through the generation of stress proteins.
October 2018, In the US, Verizon was the first to have a non-standards-based deployment that was actually a fixed broadband network. In March 2019, Verizon turned on its standards-based 5G network in Minneapolis and Chicago, though mobile 5G devices were not yet available. Verizon began selling Samsung Galaxy S10 5G on May 16, 2019 and claims it will have 5G in 30 cities by the end of 2019.
Mar. 2018: Technocrat Elon Musk’s SpaceX program gains formal approval for satellite broadband network. As of the end of 2016 there were about 1,459 satellites in orbit around the Earth. SpaceX last month announced a plan to launch some 11,943 satellites, multiplying orbital vehicles by an order of magnitude. What SpaceX are actually seeking is to replace every broadband and communications provider on the planet, by cutting out the middle man of land-based networks that stand between you and the internet. Besides, Musk, who of course also owns Tesla, and whose cars are currently connected to AT&T’s 5G network would rather use his own network. And it seems clear that data needs will only increase for data hungry vehicles that drive themselves. Already Tesla cars consume quite a few gigabytes of data per month.
Until he gets all the satellites, he also struck up a deal where he is planning to build millions of 5G towers across the US, Australia, and other countries around the world. AT&T says in the US alone, 5G will need 300,000 new cell towers. Keep in mind, there are only roughly 220,000 cell towers in the US today.
Interestingly enough, Musk’s grandfather, Canadian Joshua Haldeman, was an avid supporter of technocracy, and served as Research Director and ultimately became the head of the Technocracy Inc. party in Canada, in the 1930’s. The definition of technocracy is simply the government or control of society or industry by an elite of technical experts. They argued that the best way out of the crisis (the Great Depression) was to reject the messiness of the market and old-fashioned politics and adopt a “modern scientific point of view.” And believed that traditional economics, obsessed with arbitrary pricing mechanisms rather than rational production, was nothing more than the “pathology of debt.” The technocracy movement was taken so seriously in Canada that it was banned by the government, fearing it planned to overthrow them. Haldeman soon after abandoned Canada and moved to Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa, where one of his daughters Maye, a model and dietitian from Regina, Saskatchewan, met Errol Musk, a South African electromechanical engineer, pilot, and sailor, and in 1971 would have a son together, Elon. Who according to his beliefs and actions is just as much or more of a technocrat than his father was.
December 2018: AT&T was the first US carrier to launch a standards-based mobile 5G network servicing a dozen cities, albeit without any 5G-enabled devices. As of August 2019, AT&T had deployed 5G in 21 cities and claimed the 5G network would be deployed in 30 states by the end of 2019. At the same time, 5G is introduced in South Korea. South Korean consumers began purchasing 5G devices so quickly that stores can’t stay in stock. It only took 69 days for South Korea to reach one million subscribers to 5G services after the initial network launch.
Also in 2018 Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden began a unique path toward being countries with 5G by signing a letter of intent. The goal is to “create a unified approach” to 5G deployment in each country to allow for an interconnected 5G network throughout the region. Swedish telecoms giant Ericsson predicted that 5G internet will cover up to 65% of the world’s population by the end of 2025.
Mar. 2019, in a mysterious event, a shipment of exceptionally virulent viruses including Saudi SARS coronavirus from Canada’s NML ended up in the Wuhan bio-labs. Four months later, a group of Chinese virologists were forcibly dispatched from the Canadian lab. One of them was Dr. Xiangguo Qiu who made at least five trips to the Wuhan National Bio-safety Laboratory located only 32 km away from the Huanan Seafood Market which was supposedly the epicentre of the outbreak. Theories abound that the coronavirus was then weaponized at the Wuhan Laboratory by inserting two HIV molecules. And if released would be around for awhile, like HIV, and kill just as proficiently, and which, there is also still no cure for.
June 2019: Germany held an auction for 5G spectrum. The winning companies are committed to providing 5G coverage to 98% of households by 2022. The next month, July 2019, German telecom giant Deutsche Telekom announced that Germany’s first 5G network was operational for customers in Bonn and Berlin, albeit with limited coverage. By the end of 2020, 5G coverage is due in 20 German cities.
July, 2019: Jeff Bezos, richest man in the world, is behind Amazon’s Kuiper Systems, which announces plans to eventually launch 3,236 low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites to offer broadband Internet connections across much of the globe.
Oct. 18th, 2019, the very opaque “Event 201” is held in in New York. It was sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Economic Forum (WEF), the CIA, John Hopkins Foundation, Mike Bloomberg, and the UN’s World Health Organization (WHO). The event was a rehearsal for an worldwide pandemic. Players in the exercise were presented with a scenario where a fictional coronavirus started in pig farms in Brazil, and then spread around the world, leading to a (fictional) 65 million deaths.
Interesting that Bloomberg was involved. In 2019, Forbes ranked him as the ninth-richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of $55.5 billion. In November 2019, Bloomberg began to run for the Democratic nomination for president of the US. He ended his campaign in March 2020, after having won only 61 delegates and having spent $676 million of his own money on the primary campaign, setting the record for the most expensive US presidential primary campaign in history. Coincidentally perhaps, when he began his campaign, Saunders was the predominate candidate, then after he stepped down nearly all the other candidates also began stepping down, and Biden suddenly became the predominate candidate.
The same day Event 201 began (Oct. 18th), The World Military Games, opened in Wuhan, China, and ran until October 27th. Similar to the Olympics, but for military personal, 140 nations and 9,309 athletes participated in 27 sports, including track and field and archery for para athletes, obstacle courses, Judo, and military pentathlons, along with many of the same individual and team sports played at the Olympics. And for the first time boxing competitions were opened to female military boxers. The US delegation was comprised of 300 military personal. Another theory suggests that perhaps one of two scenarios were carried out at this time, either the Wuhan laboratories were infiltrated and the weaponized SARS coronavirus’s two HIV molecules were extracted or it was replaced with a less deadlier version by globalist deep state actors in the US military, who then released it, so that the blame would eventually be put on China. Regardless, only a couple of weeks later the virus started showing up in Wuhan.
In related news, in Mar. 2020, in a tit-for-tat between the US and China, Zhao Lijian, a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, tweeted of the possibility that “it might be US Army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan”, making a direct connection with the Military Games in Wuhan. Zhao’s conclusion maybe suggests the virus was already in effect in the US before being identified in Wuhan, due to the by now fully documented inability of the US to test and verify differences compared with the flu. A manufactured epidemic event started in the US by the globalists to effect an election year and carry out their agenda? Who knows?
Nov.1st 2019: China officially launches 5G technology. It is expected that 36% of China’s mobile users to be using 5G by 2025. That’s about 600 million subscribers, who would also make up 40% of the entire global 5G market by that year.
Dec.10th In Wuhan (11 million), the largest city in Hubei province (58 million), China, one of the earliest known coronavirus patients, starts feeling ill.
Dec. 16th The patient, Guixian, is admitted to Wuhan Central Hospital with infection in both lungs but resistant to anti-flu drugs. Staff later learned he worked at a seafood market connected to the outbreak.
Dec. 27th Initially thought of as a mysterious case of pneumonia, the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission ruled out influenza, avian influenza, adenovirus infection, SARS, MERS and other commonly known respiratory diseases as the cause. Wuhan health officials are told that a new coronavirus is causing the illness.
Jan. 2020. Rogers switched on Canada’s first live 5G network in the downtown cores of Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver. Rogers has said by the end of 2020 they intend to offer 5G in 20 Canadian markets, but the full roll-out will take years.
Looking at regions, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) tops the list with 168 cities with 5G networks. Asia is second with 156 cities, while the Americas is in third with 53 cities. These 5G roll-outs include both mobile and fixed wireless 5G networks. Many of the carriers are launching 5G in the largest population centers first. For example, as many as five communications service providers have been rolling out 5G in major cities such as New York and Los Angeles.
To-date (Apr.2020) 5G has been deployed in 378 cities across 34 countries. Leading the pack is South Korea with coverage in 85 cities. China takes second place with 57 cities, followed by the US with 50 and the UK with 31. The remaining countries in the top ten for 5G are Saudi Arabia, Spain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Australia, Germany, and Romania. Since, the top four countries have emerged as leaders because multiple companies in these countries have deployed networks and are selling compatible devices. Countries, also quickly coming on line with 5G but still having limited development, include Switzerland, Finland, and Italy.
Dec. 31St WHO has admitted that this is when the Chinese authorities supposedly first informed it about the outbreak, but decided not to convey such information to the rest of the world. It appears Taiwan was the only country that had heard the chatter from China, and by the 31st had already started monitoring travellers coming on flights from Wuhan. Taiwan authorities also told WHO that day that Taiwanese doctors had learned from their mainland counterparts that health care workers had been falling ill with the mysterious new virus, and they were sending a team to check it out, which they did. This was crucial information, since it indicated the virus was spreading from person to person, but once again WHO ignored it.
Jan 1st 2020: A Wuhan Health Commission directive prohibited all medical facilities in the city “from publicizing medical information without permission,” and online discussions about the outbreak were quickly censored. Wuhan police said that they had detained eight locals who had spread “rumours” about the outbreak. At least some of the suppressed whistle-blowers were doctors who had tried to warn colleagues about the new virus.Panicked locals cleared Wuhan pharmacies of surgical masks and over-the-counter preventive Chinese medicines, instead of toilet paper and six-packs of pop.
Jan. 2nd Chinese researchers map the new coronavirus’ complete genetic information. And identify it as a new coronavirus, which includes SARS and the common cold. It is named SARS-CoV-2, which causes the disease named COVID-19. Coronaviruses are common and spread through being in proximity to an infected person and inhaling droplets generated when they cough or sneeze, or touching a surface where these droplets land and then touching one’s face or nose. They publish the results on Jan.9th.
Jan. 3rd WHO was informed by Chinese authorities of 44 cases, 11 of them severe.
Jan. 5: WHO commented for the first time about the outbreak, disclosing that it had known about an outbreak of a “pneumonia of unknown cause” in Wuhan for five days and recommending that it should be “handled prudently.” But the agency didn’t recommend “any specific measures for travellers.” instead it advised “against the application of any travel or trade restrictions on China based on the information currently available on this event.”
Jan. 7: Bushfires in Australia peak with the smoke from the fires having made their way approximately 11,000 kilometres across the South Pacific Ocean to Chile and Argentina. NASA estimated that 306 million tonnes of CO2 had been emitted. By March 9th the fires burnt an estimated 18.6 million hectares (186,000 square kilometres), destroyed over 5,900 buildings (including 2,779 homes), killed at least 34 people, and an estimated one billion animals, with some endangered species may be driven to extinction. The cost of dealing with the bush-fires is expected to exceed A$4.4 billion, with tourism sector revenues falling more than A$1 billion.
Jan.10: WHO addressed the outbreak again. “From the currently available information, preliminary investigation suggests that there is no significant human-to-human transmission, and no infections among health care workers have occurred,” the agency stated, contradicting information that had been provided by Taiwan. Still not not recommending any specific health measures for travellers, WHO released general information on how to deal with virus infections.
Jan. 11, China announced its first death from the virus, a 61-year-old man who had purchased goods from the seafood market. Treatment did not improve his symptoms after he was admitted to hospital and he died of heart failure on the evening of January 9.
Jan 12: China completed and published the genetic sequence of the new virus, while WHO announces that, “Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel” #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China was still saying there was “no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission.”
Jan 12: China completed and published the genetic sequence of the new virus.
Jan. 13: First coronavirus case reported in Thailand, the first known case outside China.
Jan. 14: WHO announces that, “Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel” #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China
Jan. 15: The patient who becomes the first confirmed US case leaves Wuhan and arrives in the US, carrying the coronavirus. No one in the US had yet to be tested. Same day, Trump signs Phase-One of US and China trade agreement. The deal includes provisions to root out intellectual property theft and forced technology transfers and increase Chinese purchases of US goods, though it leaves open questions about enforcement.
Jan. 16: Articles of impeachment of Trump submitted to the Senate, initiating the trial.
Jan.17, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sent personnel to screen travellers coming from Wuhan to three major U.S. airports – JFK, Los Angeles International, and San Francisco International, which were getting the highest traffic from the outbreak’s epicentre. More airports were added to the list in subsequent weeks.
Jan. 18: The Wuhan Health Commission announces four new cases. At the Annual Wuhan Lunar New Year banquet, tens of thousands of people gathered for a potluck.
Jan. 19: Beijing sends epidemiologists to Wuhan. A day later, Zhong Nanshan, a top Chinese doctor who is helping to coordinate the coronavirus response, announces the virus can be passed between people.
Jan. 20: China reported a third death and more than 200 infections, with cases also reported outside Hubei province including in the capital Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen. As China confirmed human-to-human transmission, WHO finally manages getting it’s first team to Wuhan for “a brief field visit.”
The first case announced in South Korea (pop. 51 million). By the middle of February, a much more significant outbreak of the disease could be traced to one of the many cult-like religious sects in the country and their travels back and forth to Wuhan, and infections quickly rose into the thousands. The South Korean government quickly switched to testing overdrive. On Feb. 26, the country began drive-through testing. By Mar. 9, nearly 200,000 people had been tested for the disease. The government is also, more controversially, using a phone app that relies on GPS to track those in quarantine and make sure that they maintain their self-separation. A rigorous triage has sent all but the most serious 10% of the infected to recover at home, lessening the strain on the medical system. The hyper-connected country has been able to practice social distancing with relative ease as people went online to work remotely, order groceries, and maintain contact with friends. Instead of the authoritarian quarantining that China implemented, South Korea has relied on a test and track approach, using technology, a rapid response, a smart and techno-savvy culture, lots of testing and follow-up, and a general spirit of compliance. To-date the rate of infection has levelled off, and the death rate remains very low at less than 1 percent.
Jan. 21: The CDC confirms the first coronavirus case in the US.
Jan 22, the death toll in China jumped to 17 with more than 550 infections. Many European airports stepped up checks on flights from Wuhan.
Jan. 23: With the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) government reporting only 830 infections, Wuhan and three other cities go on lock-down. Everything is shut down, from schools to factories, internal transportation, and even any further Lunar New Year celebrations are cancelled. All air and rail departures were suspended. Unfortunately, in the days leading up to the lock-down, just as the Lunar New Year holiday (Jan. 24th to 30th) began, approximately 5 million people leave Wuhan city without being screened for the illness.
WHO announce the outbreak did not yet constitute a public emergency of international concern and there was “no evidence” of the virus spreading between humans outside of China. Even though by then, cases had already started to crop up around the world, including in the US
Jan. 24: China (pop. 1.4 billion) extends the lock-down to cover 36 million people and starts to rapidly build a new hospital in Wuhan. From this point, very strict measures continue to be implemented around the country for the rest of the epidemic. One week later the number of infections had climbed to nearly 10,000. The quarantine methods wouldn’t show much effect over the next three to four weeks, but countries around the world criticized them for being so authoritarian.
Though authoritarian, and perhaps guilty of suppression and censorship of information in the early days, the actions implemented are seemingly working. And though they stumbled, they acted far quicker than many democratically elected leaders have to date. Besides it’s not as if the democratic countries that are acting now and implementing similar actions, put their decisions to a vote. Tony Perman, who was quarantined in Shanghai, said that “Certainly the reality of authoritarian control, the subservience of the individual to the state or the collective, and the pressure to conform made widespread habit change both more feasible and acceptable, even if due to fear of retribution. But there was a palpable ‘all for one and one for all’ ethos.” The success of China’s approach owes as much to the public’s sense of responsibility as it does to the government’s autocratic methods.
Most deaths in China occurred in Hubei province, with most all patients over 65 years old with chronic diseases or compromised immune systems. But then in the Wuhan area, lung cancer and emphysema/COPD are significantly higher than national averages in China, a country where half of all men smoke. Interestingly, and a matter of fact, the coronavirus genome variations in Iran and Italy were sequenced and it was revealed they do not belong to the variety that infected Wuhan.
Jan. 25, travel restrictions were imposed on a further five cities in Hubei, taking the overall number of people affected to 56 million. Hong Kong declared a virus emergency, cancelled Lunar New Year celebrations and restricted links to mainland China.
Jan 30, seven days after saying there wasn’t one, WHO declared coronavirus a global emergency, as the death toll in China jumped to 170, with 12,167 cases reported in the country. But they also announce that they “do not recommend any travel restrictions based on the current available data. And also demanded countries not to engage in “discrimination” in their handling of the outbreak, to prevent the “stigmatization” of the Chinese people. Because travel restrictions “can have the effect of increasing fear and stigma”. They were obviously insisting that maintaining the globalists principle of open borders, and the international traffic of people, was more important than stopping perhaps a epidemic, which may be real or not, and hurting people’s feelings. All through February, WHO was still against any travel or trade restrictions.
India and the Philippines confirmed their first cases of the virus, with one infected patient in each country.
Jan 31: In Italy (pop. 60 million), two Chinese tourists in Rome tested positive for the virus. The Italian government suspended all flights to and from China and declared a state of emergency. Then the virus appeared again, on Feb. 14Th, just outside the northern city of Milan. The patient was originally thought to have been infected by a colleague returning from China. But the colleague tested negative. A comedy of errors then played out. According to The Washington Post, “the patient had sought medical attention multiple times, starting on February 14, but he wasn’t diagnosed until February 21 (after he infected his wife, hospital staff, several patients and others).” Even though basically shutting down the country, with everyone on lock-down, Italy is undoubtedly getting so hard hit today because it has the second highest proportion of seniors in the world, with 23% of the population over 65. Only Japan has an older population. This may explain their high mortality rate of 7.3 per cent, which is nearly double of what China’s rate was at its peak, of 3.8 per cent. The few areas hit the hardest in Italy also had very high rates of smoking, obstruction diseases and heart disease. Many who were hospitalized were in fact already dieing, with the average age 81 years old. While an Italian virologist says that in the early days of the outbreak the country’s attempt not to appear “racist” and concerned over being politically correct, hindered the ability to properly respond to the pandemic. They also erred at the beginning of the outbreak by admitting patients with only mild symptoms, and with a low number of ICU (Intensive Care Units) beds per population (one-third of ICU beds per population as the US) the hospitals were overwhelmed. As it was, a typical flu season took up around 80 to 90% of their ICU bed availability. Other errors were a lack of strict hygiene practises, and lack of any shelter in place guidelines.
The US declares the outbreak a public health emergency. And with 11 confirmed cases in the US and no deaths yet reported, the US (pop.327 million) also announces that any citizens who had visited Hubei province in China, within 14 days of their return to the US, will be subjected to a mandatory quarantine of up to 14 days. And that all aircraft arriving from China were being directed to 13 authorized airports to receive them, where the CDC is working with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and individual airlines to identify potentially infected persons. And further, that foreign nationals (other than immediate family members, US citizens, permanent residents, and flight crew) who have been in China within 14 days of their arrival to the US will be denied entry into the country. The US mainstream news called their government fear mongering, racist and xenophobic for doing so.
The number of confirmed cases in China jumped to 9,809. While Russia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom confirmed their first cases of the virus.
Russia closes 4,200 km border with China. Bans Chinese citizens from entering country. As does Singapore.
Feb. 1: Philippines announced their first death, the first one outside China.
Feb 3: Across 25 countries, 17,205 people had been infected with the virus, which had claimed the lives of 361 others. But 99 percent of cases still remained in China.
Three days since President Trump had prohibited foreigners who had recently been in China from travelling to the US, WHO voiced opposition to travel bans, saying measures that would “unnecessarily interfere with travel and trade” weren’t needed.
Same day, the shit-show that was the US 2020 Iowa Democratic caucuses took place. the first nominating contests in the Democratic Party primaries. Following a three-day delay in vote reporting, the Iowa Democratic Party declared that Buttigieg had won two more delegates than Sanders, while Sanders won the popular vote, but it would take 24 days for the Iowa Democratic Party to announce the results as official.
Feb 4: Diamond Princess cruise ship quarantined at the Port of Yokohama dock for the next four weeks. An 80-year-old passenger from Hong Kong who embarked in Yokohama, on board the Diamond Princess cruise ship, sailed one segment of the itinerary and disembarked in Hong Kong earlier on Jan 25th. Six days after leaving the ship, he visited a local Hong Kong hospital where he later tested positive for COVID-19. Home countries arranged to evacuate their citizens and quarantine them further in their own countries, and by Mar. 1st, all on board including the crew and the captain had disembarked. The 300 US citizens onboard were flown back to the US and quarantined in locations across the country, including on Air Force bases in Northern California and Texas, and the University of Nebraska. In San Antonio the CDC accidentally released one of the infected patients, where he roamed a nearby mall for two hours.
The Diamond Princess gives the best indication of how fatal the disease is than global statistics. It was a controlled environment, without many variables that normally are impossible to control. “We know that all but one patient boarded the boat without the virus. We know that the other passengers were healthy enough to travel. And we know their whereabouts and exposures.” All of its passengers and crew were tested, with 712 people out of the 3,711 people on board testing positive (about 18%), 334 of whom were asymptomatic (showing no symptoms). The infections included at least 138 from India (including 132 crew and 6 passengers), 35 Filipinos, 32 Canadians, 24 Australians, 13 Americans, 4 Indonesians, 4 Malaysians, and 2 Britons. Seven people from the boat have died, giving a death rate of 0.86 percent. And that not a single death among passengers has been in a person under 70. And finally, on most all modern cruise ships today, their WiFi services onboard are 5G.
Feb 5: Trump is acquitted of impeachment for being too slow to send arms to corrupt and Nazi-controlled Ukraine.
Feb. 8: The death toll in China reached 722, with 34,546 confirmed infections.
Feb. 9: The death toll in China surpassed that of the 2002-03 SARS epidemic, with 811 deaths recorded and 37,198 infections. A beaming, Canadian PM Trudeau, sends 16 tons (32,000 lbs) of face masks, gloves, goggles and clothing to China.
Feb. 13, North Korea imposed a month-long quarantine on all foreign visitors and others suspected to have COVID-19. The death toll in mainland China hit 1,300, with nearly 60,000 infections recorded. Meanwhile, Japan confirmed its first death from the virus.
Feb. 14: Chinese President Xi Jinping called for a new bio-security law to be accelerated. Where severe restrictions were placed on requiring approval before any research institution publishes anything on the origin of the novel coronavirus. Ever since, the Chinese government has put a complete lock-down on information related to the origins of the virus, refusing to provide US experts with samples collected from the earliest cases, and quickly shutting down the Shanghai lab which published COVID-19’s genome back on January 11th. All the while, several of the doctors and journalists who reported on the spread early on have disappeared.
Feb. 18: China reported around 72,000 infections. A month later, it had only reached around 81,000. Since, the rate of infection has levelled off, and the death rate remains very low at less than 1 percent rather than the 3.8 per cent at the peak of it’s epidemic.
Feb. 19: First confirmed case in Iran (pop. 83 million). Hours later they report first two deaths. Just over a month later, Mar. 20Th, they had 19,644 cases, with new cases also still rising, reporting 1,237 new cases on that date. To-date death toll is 1,433 people, with over 8 % (23) of their parliamentary members contracting the disease. As of Mar. 20th, Iran has the third highest number of COVID-19 deaths after China and Italy, the highest in Western Asia, and the fourth-highest number of cases, surpassed only by Mainland China, Italy, and the US (which on Mar.21st had 25,493 cases).
China’s daily infection figures drop below 2,000 for the second straight day, with the country’s health commission reporting 74,185 infections on the mainland and 2,004 deaths.
Feb. 20, South Korea reported its first death from the coronavirus. Meanwhile, And though China reported the death toll had risen to 2,118 while the total number of cases reached 74,576, the country’s health commission reported daily infections dropped to the lowest in almost a month, a result of authorities only counting cases confirmed by genetic testing in Hubei.
Feb. 22: South Korea saw its largest spike in a single day with 229 new cases of the virus.
Italy reported its first two deaths, while Iran confirmed a fifth death among 10 new infections. A sixth death was later confirmed, though it was not clear whether this case was included in the country’s 28 confirmed cases.
In China, the number of new infections fell significantly with 397 cases reported.
Feb. 27, Estonia, Denmark, Northern Ireland and the Netherlands reported their first coronavirus cases. The number of infections passed 82,000 worldwide, including more than 2,800 deaths.
Mar. 1: Global averages at this time showed 10% of those infected needed to be hospitalized, and 1 to 2% died, mostly all elderly and already medically compromised. Survivability rate was 98 to 99%. This rate may even rise, since with proper testing, there is undoubtedly going to be many more infected than now confirmed, but who do not die.
Mar. 5: Dr Jeremy Samuel Faust, emergency medicine physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, and an instructor at Harvard Medical School, pointed out that 25,000 people die in China every day, a high proportion of which is due to respiratory diseases which show symptoms similar to coronavirus. At the peak of the outbreak figures show that just 25 of the typical 25,000 daily deaths were from coronavirus, and that many of the deaths were of individuals in the same age groups and in the same areas where the deaths from respiratory diseases was already high. So he asked “How were doctors supposed to sort out which of those 25 out of 25,000 daily deaths were solely due to coronavirus, and which were more complicated?”
Mar. 6, OPEC+ called on Russia to coordinate an oil production slow down in an effort to stabilize oil prices. All expectations were that a supply reduction would be agreed upon and the price of oil would stabilize. A shock not heard, Russia said “nyet” and turned the offer down, creating a price war.
Russia and Saudi Arabia can produce oil at around $20 per barrel, while US shale production costs average around $46 per barrel. And so Saudi Arabia and Russia can live with sub $30 oil for quite some time. Russia stated they could go 10 to 15 years. The US energy sector will collapse very quickly with sub $30 oil unless banks and hedge funds are willing to lend more dollars, which they now don’t have. One also has to consider that the US has spent the last 12 years using borrowed capital to invest in things and expecting the profits made to be greater than the interest payable. Which hasn’t always been the case, instead they simply print more money to make up for it. And they are currently at their “weakest moment perhaps since the Great Depression, perhaps ever.” Over the same 12 years, Russia, one of the least indebted countries in the world, has been the largest buyer of gold, and the biggest seller of US Treasuries in the world.
Related, today (Mar 25/in Victoria BC) I went to put some gas in the car, while keeping a safe distance from anyone I encountered of course. Three weeks ago we were paying up to $1.48 per liter, today it was down to a loonie per liter.
Mar. 7: the coronavirus had killed nearly 3,500 people and infected another 102,000 people across more than 90 countries.
China’s Health Commission reported 99 new cases, down from 143 cases the day before, with a total of 80,651 cases nationwide. Official data, meanwhile, showed China’s exports plunging 17.2% in the first two months of the year after the outbreak brought much of the country to a halt.
Mar. 11: WHO declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic.
The US barred the entry of all foreign nationals who had visited China, Iran and a group of European countries during the previous 14 days. The ban applied to Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. On Mar.16th the ban was also applied to foreign nationals departing from the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Mar. 12 to Mar. 20: Most countries around the world soon followed and would shut their borders and heavily restrict or outright ban all incoming and outgoing flights. Venezuela, Bolivia, El Salvador, Russia, Pakistan and Cuba, all shutdown most flights soon after the US did. One of the many to do so on Mar.16th, was Canada (pop. 37 million) which finally announced it was blocking the entry of anyone who is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, except for airplane crews, diplomats, immediate family members of Canadian citizens. Many felt and have said, that PM Trudeau, had held back until now because he felt limiting entry was racist.
Mar. 13: Bill Gates stepped down from the public boards of Microsoft and Berkshire Hathaway. His stated reasons include, to dedicate more time to philanthropic priorities including global health, vaccination programs and development, education, and tackling climate change. And comes on the heels of the Gates Foundation’s announcement that it is involved in efforts to “identify, assess, develop, and scale-up treatments” for COVID-19.
Mar. 16, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio ordered the city’s bars, theatres and cinemas to close down, as the number of cases continued to rise in the US.
Renowned scientist Frank Plummer who received the original Saudi SARS coronavirus sample back in May 2013, and was currently working on coronavirus (HIV) vaccine in the Winnipeg NML labs, collapsed and died in mysterious conditions in Kenya. According to CBC, Plummer, 67, was a keynote speaker at the annual meeting of the University of Nairobi’s collaborative centre for research and training in HIV/AIDS/STIs. No confirmed cause of death has yet been released.
Marillyn Hewson, the chief executive of the world’s largest defense contractor, Lockheed Martin, and one of the most powerful women in the world announced that she will step down as CEO on June 15. Since the pandemic started in January, CEO’s have been dropping like flies. Some of them include (starting in January) IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, LinkedIn CEO, Jeff Weiner, MGM CEO, Jim Murren, Credit Suisse CEO, Tidjane Thiam, JCPenney CMO, Shawn Gensch, St. Luke’s Hospital CEO, Christine Candio (one of St. Louis’ biggest hospitals), MasterCard CEO, Ajay Banga, UPS, David Abney, Disney CEO, Bob Iger, and the previously mentioned Bill Gates. The majority of them have stepped down in the past three weeks. Over the past year nearly 1,400 CEO’s have left their posts in the US. In October 2019 alone, 172 chief executives left their jobs. The highest monthly number on record. An advocate for corporate governance says its because company boards “have been too compliant and they’re finally recognizing it’s their job to be vigilant about chief executive misbehaviour.” Perhaps. But severance, stock options and buyouts were beyond exceptional, and maybe not so lucrative today.
Mar. 17: European Union (EU) leaders, announced they were closing off at least 26 countries (with more than 400 million people) to nearly all visitors from the rest of the world for at least 30 days. While in reality many European countries had already done so, the borderless ideology of the EU be damned.
Mar. 18: Flattening Curves – China, Singapore, Japan, Iraq, South Korea.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison declared for the first time ever a “human bio-security emergency” in the country, and the travel advisory had been upgraded to the highest level. Australians were told, “Do not travel abroad, do not go overseas.”
Italy, meanwhile, recorded 475 new deaths, the highest one-day toll of any nation, taking its total to 2,978. The total number of infections in the country reached 35,713.
For the first time since the start of the epidemic, no new domestic cases were reported in China.
Mar. 19: Italy overtook China as the country with the most coronavirus-related deaths, registering 3,405 dead compared to 3,245 in China. Globally, there had been 8,843 deaths to date, or around 7% of the numbers who have died over the same time period of the current seasonal flu.
Australia and New Zealand finally begin to restrict travel in and out.
Tulsi Gabbard, the second to last candidate in the Democratic primaries to do so, stands down, endorsing Biden, and leaving he and Saunders the two old white guys left in the race to run against another old white guy.
Trump announced he was going to unveil measures to get experimental treatments into the hands of patients, despite some resistance from the Federal Drug Administration. Including chloroquine, an inexpensive anti-malaria drug that’s been around for over 70 years and has been shown to halt coronavirus in patients who have mild to moderate symptoms. It was first approved in the US in 1949, and has been widely used as a low-cost method to treat a variety of diseases, including malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. In several studies and through anecdotal evidence, chloroquine appears to significantly limit the replication of COVID-19, particularly when combined with the antibiotic azithromycin (zithromax Z-pak).
In a study published March 18th 2020, by French physician-researchers, a total of 36 patients (20 who were treated with chloroquine and 16 controls who were not) revealed that 50% of the treated group turned from positive to negative on the third day, then grew to 70% by the sixth day. Six test patients were treated with both chloroquine and Z-pak, and all six tested negative for coronavirus on day six. “Despite its small sample size our survey shows that hydroxychloroquine treatment is significantly associated with viral load reduction/disappearance in COVID-19 patients and its effect is reinforced by azithromycin,” the study concluded.
Both the Dutch CDC and the Italian Society of Infectious and Tropical disease have recommended the use of chloroquine for coronavirus patients, along with doctors from China, South Korea and Belgium – which have added the drug to their treatment guidelines. Meanwhile there are over two dozen clinical trials currently underway to study the efficacy of the drug. US physicians aren’t waiting for the trial results – as prescriptions for chloroquine have surged from 531 weekly prescriptions to 1,290, according to recent tracking data from IQVIA, (cited by Raymond James). The drug has become so popular that the UK has added both chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to a list of drugs which cannot be exported for fear that there will be a shortage in the country. According to Italian scientist Andrea Savarino, who has worked at the Italian National Institute of Health since 2006. During the 2003 outbreak of SARS coronavirus, Savarino showed in laboratory research that chloroquine may be a useful weapon against it. But by the time his research was published in “The Lancet” in November 2003, the outbreak had dissipated and there were no human cases available to test.
Another drug which has shown significant promise for COVID-19 is Avigan, which has shown to shorten COVID-19 infections from 11 days to 4, as well as drop fever in patients from 4.2 days to 2.5 days after treatment is started. Avigan is an antiviral small molecule Favipiravir developed by Toyama chemical. It was tested in two small clinical trials of 80 patients (35 treatment/45 control) in Shenzhen, China, and in a second multi-centre trial in Wuhan, China. Favipiravir is a pyrazine carboximide derivative similar to an old TB drug but is an antiviral by virtue of inhibition viral RNA dependent RNA polymerases.
All these drugs just listed, and others, and despite some not being fully tested yet, can be used immediately according the US’s Right to Try Act of 2018.
And then there are the Cubans (pop. 11 million) Though under harsh sanctions and demonized since forever by much of the Western world, it’s too bad we are not allowed to do business with them. Their anti-viral Heberon – or Interferon Alpha 2b – a therapeutic, not a vaccine, has been used with great success in the treatment of coronavirus. A joint venture in China is now producing an inhalable version, and at least 15 nations are suddenly very interested in importing the therapeutic.
“Since 1986, the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology of Havana, Cuba, has produced the recombinant human interferon alpha-2b, marketed as Heberon® Alfa R. The therapeutic use of this product has accumulated a high number of researches carried out in the country’s public health network. For the analysis of its safety profile, 28 years of reports of adverse events were reviewed in 5806 individuals, both children and adults, coming from 147 clinical trials or healthy assistances using the product. This review also contains a safety comparison between lyophilized and liquid formulations. In addition, an analysis of the connection between the occurrence of adverse events and the demographic characteristics of the patients, an analysis of immunogenicity and another on the variation of the thyroid function associated to the use of Heberon® Alfa R were included. Finally, a general analysis of the product’s efficacy based on the number of treated patients and the clinical results obtained are presented. Adverse events were reported in 4864 subjects (84 %). The main adverse events were those corresponding to the flu-like syndrome, with higher frequency in male white patients. Hypothyroidism and immunogenicity behaved lower than similar products in the international pharmaceutical market. Approximately 60 % of the treated patients obtained a relevant therapeutic response and a liquid formulation offered a better benefit/ risk ratio. The extensive clinical information evaluated recognizes a Heberon® Alfa R as a safe and effective drug, 30 years after its first production.”
Mar. 20 The White House Coronavirus Task Force said it was closing the border with Mexico (pop. 126 million) to any nonessential travel, beginning March 21. The measure comes days after they announced that the US and Canada were closing their border by mutual decision. The measure allows trade to continue but restricts non-essential travel, such as tourism, from Canada. Canadian nationals who daily commute to the US for work would still be allowed in.
Coronavirus-related deaths surged past 10,000 globally.
Mar. 21 Globally there have been 276,474 cases (35.5 cases per million people), with 11,417 deaths. The hot spots currently include Italy, with 4,032 deaths and 778 cases per million, China (which has flattened it’s curve) with 3,255 deaths and 56 cases per million, Iran 1,433 deaths/ 234 cases per million, and Spain (pop. 47 million), 1,093 deaths/ 461 cases per million. While in North America, the US have 275 deaths and 60 cases per million, Canada 12 deaths and 29 cases per million, and Mexico with 2 deaths and 2 cases per million. Other countries with 2 or less cases per million people include Venezuela, Pakistan, Russia, and Cuba.
Epicentre in the US is New York City who as of today (Mar.21st) has 5,151 confirmed cases, which accounts for a third of the US cases, and half of NY State’s cases (17,041 nationwide and 7,102 in New York state) along with 29 deaths. But then New York State has the fourth largest population in the US at 19.5 million people. With 18.8 million of them crammed into New York City. The median age of those infected in the US is currently 47. The biggest problem the US will have with this epidemic, besides more than half their population being obese, is that its a nation of people who believe in their American exceptionalism, that they are an exception to the rules that apply to the rest of humanity.
Here in British Columbia (pop. five million), we’ve had 348 cases to-date, with 200 located in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, which extends from Richmond to Whistler. Ninety-five others are located in the Fraser Health region, which stretches from Burnaby to Hope. And 30 cases in the Island Health region, which includes Vancouver Island, 19 in the Interior Health region, which includes Kelowna and Kamloops, and 4 in Northern Health, which covers the province’s north. And there have been eight deaths from the virus in B.C., all of them associated in some way with the Lynn Valley Care Centre in North Vancouver, which was the first seniors’ care home to have an identified outbreak. In total, 36 residents and 18 health-care workers at Lynn Valley Care Centre have tested positive for the coronavirus.
Overall, it seems the populations who are “social distancing” (maintaining a distance of about 2 meters or 6 feet from anyone), are doing the best in stopping the spread. Imagine that, and it’s free. Frequently washing of the hands, stop playing with our faces, don’t sneeze, spit and cough when around others, keep one’s distance, and it hurts me to say it, but cutback on the hugging and kissing of acquaintances for a bit. And avoid crowds, stores, sporting or mass entertainment events, and other situations likely to attract large numbers of people.
The experts in the viral world figure things will settle down and we will return to our typical herd immunity rate of 70 to 80%, when two things happen. First a large enough quantity of us have caught the disease and become immune, and secondly, someone comes up with a vaccine or a prophylactic antiviral in time to cut off, reduce, or contain the spread. And though it ain’t no disco nor fooling around, it isn’t a zombie apocalypse or a mass extinction event either. Infection isn’t our primary risk at this point, it’s the shutting down of our sense of reason.
As to the youth of the “Five Eyes”, the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and especially the US, who seemingly have no regard for containing the virus or admitting there is even an epidemic underway, they are like their parents, who have blamed all the world’s ills on their grandparents and parents, us boomers. Everyone aghast when during spring break they filled the beaches in an hedonistic ego, alcoholic and drug mosh pit. As is the privileged way. Seemingly oblivious to what was going on around them. And for most, paid for by their parents, who’ll greet them when they return with a smile and shake of the head uttering “kids”. But remember, just a few months ago these “kids” were the extinction rebellion, blaming the boomers for climate change, and believing that the world was going to end in ten years. Often insincerely, and following the herd, they attended pro-abortion rallies, pride parades, and protests of all kinds, because their lib-tard professors at school told them to. They would ban and attack any conservatives, and comedians, from speaking or performing at their school. While during the day they’d demand free speech by yelling in someone’s face and not allowing them to be heard. They blocked railroads, attacked anyone not thinking their group’s way, and even had a military arm called Antifa (anti-fascist) who acted like fascists. They had a deep lack of respect for government, and for others not in their tribe. While all of us were divided this way and that. By gender, age, generation, skin color, political affiliation, music preference, what type of car one drives, class, religion, and spirituality, or not, all the while staring at and playing with our phones for much of our day. Besides the young see that the virus is not affecting them, other than perhaps getting a cold-like flu for a few days and being carriers without knowing or caring, as much as it’s affecting and killing us evil boomers. This is also the same generation who only a few months ago would film themselves on their phones, going to supermarkets, and opening ice cream containers out of the freezers and licking some off the top then putting the lid back on and returning it to the freezer. Today they are filming themselves going to a supermarket and coughing and licking the fruits and vegetables, then putting them back, for someone to buy. They are shameless, with the goal for many to become an internet star and “influencer”, and have no idea what the word empathy means. And sadly, unlike the young in other societies, they have no sense of responsibility for anyone other than themselves, so they simply don’t care. But then who can blame them, they grew up in a world we boomers created by being the largest most silent majority in history for over fifty years now, and collectively allowed to happen. Does one not reap what they sow? At the same time many of us boomers are now perfectly willing to give up even more of our freedoms for a little bit of security, to shame those not willing to also give up such things, and who refuse to be a part of the collective. We falsely hope that once the epidemic is over our freedoms will return to us and it’ll be like it was before, a society extremely divided and ripe to be conquered. While in actual fact, nothing will be the same. Which itself could be good or bad. We simply don’t know yet, the fight is still being fought. We are really just pundits giving our opinion, based on the opinions told to us, with us talking to each other saying the same things verbatim.
Mar. 22: With time passing each day, more and more information, case study and data is becoming available. The subtle scary aspect of this coronavirus, is many infected people are well enough to go about their daily business, unwittingly spreading it to others because any symptoms don’t appear for, on average, five to six days after infection. New data coming out of China shows that as many as a third of the people who test positive for the coronavirus may show delayed symptoms or none at all. While scientists have been unable to agree on what role asymptomatic transmission plays in spreading the disease, they do know that in many cases, the virus appears to cause a mild illness lasting about two weeks in children, adolescents and younger adults, and potentially more severe disease lasting three to six weeks in older people.
In summary someone who has Covid-19 but has no symptoms, may infect one person out of every ten they meet, if too close or in a confined space together, while only one per cent of those people who get infected and may get sick for a week of flu symptoms, may die because they are compromised.
If we can believe them, WHO released one of the most exhaustive pieces published on how the virus spreads. The results of their research show that COVID-19 doesn’t spread as easily as we first thought or the media had us believe. The report shows that if you come in contact with someone who tests positive for the disease you have a 1–5% chance of catching it as well. The variability is large because the infection is based on the type of contact and how long, with the majority of infections coming from prolonged exposures in confined spaces with other infected individuals. Person-to-person and surface contact is by far the most common cause. When a cluster of infected people appeared, 78 to 85% of the time, it was caused by an infection within the family by droplets, and other carriers of infection in close contact with an infected person.
Or as Dr. Paul Auwaerter, the Clinical Director for the Division of Infectious Diseases at John Hopkins University School of Medicine echoes, “If you have a COVID-19 patient in your household, your risk of developing the infection is about 10%…. If you were casually exposed to the virus in the workplace, and you were not locked up in conference room for six hours with someone who was infected (like a hospital), your chance of infection is about 0.5%”. According to Dr. Auwaerter, these transmission rates are very similar to the seasonal flu.
According to WHO’s report, air-based transmission or untraceable community spread is very unlikely. The data from China shows that community-based spread was only a very small handful of cases. And that the “transmission by fine aerosols in the air over long distances is not one of the main causes of spread. Most of the 2,055 infected hospital workers in China, were either infected at home or in the early phase of the outbreak in Wuhan when hospital safeguards were not raised yet”.
And according to a working paper from the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University, “The current scientific consensus is that most transmission via respiratory secretions happens in the form of large respiratory droplets … rather than small aerosols. Droplets, fortunately, are heavy enough that they don’t travel very far and instead fall from the air after travelling only a few feet.” As one doctor, who wants to remain anonymous says, “Corona doesn’t have wings”.
To summarize, China, Singapore, and South Korea’s containment efforts worked because community-based and airborne transmission aren’t common. The most common form of transmission is person-to-person or surface-based. And is why the best things we can do is keep our distance when around others and wash our hands often. While the true viral capacity is unknown at this moment, it is theorized that COVID-19 is more than the seasonal flu but less than other viruses. The average number of people to which a single infected person will transmit the virus, range from as low as 1.5 to a high of 3.0.
In China, only 8.1% of cases were 20-somethings, 1.2% were teens, and 0.9% were 9 or younger, while there isn’t a single death reported below the age of 10 in the world, and most children who test positive don’t show any symptoms at all. As of Feb. 20th, 78% of the cases reported were ages 30 to 69. The WHO report hypothesizes this is for a biological reason and isn’t related to lifestyle or exposure. “Even when we looked at households, we did not find a single example of a child bringing the infection into the household and transmitting to the parents.It was the other way around. And the children tend to have a mild disease.” said the report.
Global data shows that around 95% of people who are tested aren’t positive, but the rate does vary by country. Every country has a different population size which skew multiple and cumulative case comparisons. And though viruses don’t acknowledge our human borders, by controlling for population, you can properly weigh the number of cases in the context of the local population size. For instance the US population is five and a half times greater than Italy, six times larger than South Korea, and only a quarter of the size of China, so comparing cases is mundane. As is already happening with China and many other countries, regardless of particular policy solutions, such as shutting the borders or social distancing, the virus, as with most things in nature, is displaying it’s typical pattern of not growing linearly forever but accelerating, plateauing, then quickly declining. As the virus spreads it will follow this pattern, and whether it is environmental or our own efforts, viruses quickly decline, despite what the media tells us. Every country will follow a similar pattern. And is why the Bell curve is the dominant trait of outbreaks and indeed, a fact of nature. But mainstream media shows only the more dramatic looking graphs of linear projection of the virus, instead of the more truthful, logarithmic scale. And of course they show us the symbolic sport-like scoreboards of cases and deaths.
Globally, 80–85% of all cases are mild, and will not require a hospital visit and home-based treatment/ no treatment is effective. While reports from the CDC, suggest that 12% of COVID-19 cases need some form of hospitalization, which is lower than the projected severity rate of 20%, with 80% being mild cases. The report also suggests that 1% of everyone in the US who is tested for COVID-19 will have a severe case that will require a hospital visit or long-term admission. For context, this year’s flu season has so far led to at least 17 million medical visits and 370,000 hospitalizations (0.1%) out of 30–50 million infections.
Based on the initial results, and the results from other countries, the total number of positive COVID-19 cases will increase as testing increases, but the fatality rate will continue to fall and the severity case mix will fall. As the US continues to expand testing, the case fatality rate will decline over the next few weeks. Reasonable estimates for the case fatality ratio in the general US population vary from 0.05% to 1%. The US fatality rate is already drastically declining as the number of cases increases, halving every four or five days. The fatality rate will eventually level off and plateau as the US case-mix becomes apparent. This can already be seen. On Mar.8th the US fatality rate was 4.06% (22 deaths of 541 cases), five days later the rate dropped to 2.27% (49 deaths of 2,247 cases) and by Mar.20th the rate was 1.32% (256 deaths of 19,383 cases). With most of the deaths, people had underlying conditions. In hard hit Italy, 99% of all deaths had an underlying pathology. Only 0.8% had no underlying condition. And that most of those infected were over the age of 60, while the median age of a fatality was 80. All of Italy’s fatalities under the age of 40, were males with serious pre-existing medical conditions.
Comparatively, these fatality rates are similar to Pneumonia and influenza (1.53% to 1.93%), Chronic lower respiratory disease (1.48% to 1.93%), all respiratory causes (3.04% to 4.14%), Heart disease (3.21% to 4.4%), Cancer (0.68% to 1.05%) and Diabetes (0.26% to 0.39%).
Mar. 23: Globally, 338,307 cases of COVID-19 have been reported, including 14,602 deaths. Comparably, over the same time frame, 13.7 million people around the world have died. 152,000 died each day/ 6,500 every hour. Predominately from cardiovascular diseases of the heart (4.9 million), cancer (2.5 million) and respiratory diseases (1 million).
A poll shows 13% of Americans believe they are currently infected with COVID-19 (mathematically impossible), so of course full-on panic is blocking their ability to think clearly and determine how to deploy their resources to stop this virus. The same poll showed over three quarters of Americans are scared of what is being done to society through law and hysteria, not of infection or spreading the virus to those most vulnerable. At this rate, we will spend more money on “shelter-in-place” (house arrest) than if we completely rebuilt our acute care and emergency capacity. Rampant hoarding and a volatile stock market aren’t being driven by the coronavirus, but rather such hoarding behaviour strongly demonstrates an irrational hysteria, from purchasing ineffective household masks to buying toilet paper by the hundreds of rolls. The fear card is being played, and is being driven by government action, and the fear of what the government will do next. All this because the virus has impacted 0.004% of the nation’s population.
While countries around the world are passing bills to help small business’ and people who are being affected by the crisis and economic downturn, with hats in hand, and leaving a slug trail behind them, the “coronavirus corporate coup” moves ever forward. For a crisis must never go to waste. While this is happening in many countries, in the US, the aerospace and arms manufacturer Boeing, is asking for a $60 billion bailout. Even though their financial problems predated the crisis, with the mismanagement that led to the 737 Max as well as defense and space products that don’t work. They are now trying to get the taxpayer to foot the bill for its errors, so it can go back to making more of them. Elon Musk, and Jeff Bezos (the richest person in the world) want $5 billion in grants or loans to keep their commercial space company employees on the job and launch facilities open. They also want the IRS to give them cash for R&D tax credits. Defense contractors want their payments sped up, and they want to widen a giant loophole called ‘other transaction authority’ to get around restrictions on profiteering, which will allow the Pentagon to shovel money to defense contractors without restrictions. The hotel industry wants $150 billion, restaurants want $145 billion, manufacturers want $1.4 trillion, and the International Council of Shopping Centers wants a guarantee of up to $1 trillion. The beer industry wants $5 billion, candy industry wants $500 million, and even though gyms and fitness centers are closed, Adidas is seeking support for a long-sought provision allowing people to use pretax money to pay for gym memberships and fitness equipment. Meat-packers want expedited visas for seasonal workers, so they can undercut wages of their workers, and importers want to stop paying duties they incurred for harming domestic industries for illegally dumping products into the US.
And while all schools have also shut down, even though they would provide a single point of testing a large population for a possible infection in the home to prevent community spread, based on transmission evidence children are more likely to catch COVID-19 in the home than at school. As well, they are more likely to expose older vulnerable adults as multi-generational homes are more common.
“The data is overwhelming at this point that community-based spread and airborne transmission is not a threat. We don’t have significant examples of spreading through restaurants or gyms. When you consider the environment COVID-19 prefers, isolating every family in their home is a perfect situation for infection and transmission among other family members. Evidence from South Korea and Singapore shows that it is completely possible and preferred to continue on with life while making accommodations that are data-driven, such as social distancing and regular temperature checks.”
And due to coronavirus’ sensitivity to UV light and heat (just like the normal influenza virus), it is very likely that it will “burn off” in many areas as humidity increases and temperatures rise. The University of Maryland mapped severe COVID-19 outbreaks with local weather patterns around the world, from the US to China. They found that the virus thrives in a certain temperature and humidity channel. “The researchers found that all cities experiencing significant outbreaks of COVID-19 have very similar winter climates with an average temperature of 41 to 52 degrees Fahrenheit, an average humidity level of 47% to 79% with a narrow east-west distribution along the same 30–50 N” latitude”.
Mar. 24: Globally: 414,661 cases and 18,552 deaths so far. And though one of the reasons why viral outbreaks attract concern from medical authorities is that they may have the potential to kill many more if they are allowed to spread unchecked. Comparing the COVID-19 death total to-date, over the same time frame, more than 238,000 people have died of HIV/AIDS.
Curfews, quarantines, lock-downs and house arrests continue to expand. In China, two months after they imposed strict lock-down measures, such measures are now being lifted. But elsewhere, extreme measures to meet the threat and control of the virus are indeed underway, but does that mean we should destroy our economies and societies to achieve it? It reminds me of what a US army officer in Vietnam once said, “We had to destroy the village in order to save it”.
In the US, 16 states have now locked down their populations, more than 158 million people. At it’s peak China locked down 760 million. Today India is locking down more than 1.3 billion people. And while Italy, Iran, and South Korea case rates are high and in some cases accelerating, they are perhaps two weeks away from those numbers beginning to flatten, then drop. It has been estimated, and according to nature, that, Spain, Germany, France, the UK and the US, Japan and India, whose cases are all quickly accelerating, will begin to see a flattening and then a quick drop-off in three to four weeks. It looks like a typical lock-down will last 21 days. After which, we should be allowed back outside. If not, something is definately amiss.
In Europe, Sweden (pop.10 million) and Germany (pop. 83 million) have closed their borders to Europeans and all foreign citizens, but migrants claiming asylum from the Middle East and Africa are still allowed to enter. Much like in Canada, where an emergency bill is trying to be passed to help the economy and Canadians, 500,000 of which are now out of work, but which includes an exemption from air travel restrictions, which took effect Mar. 18Th, where temporary foreign workers will still be allowed to enter the country to fill jobs that have been shutdown in the agriculture, seafood processing and other key industries, for cheaper wages, and can now stay twice as long (temporarily) for one to two years. While many governments are passing bills where people will be paid for staying at home, just like the concept of a “Guaranteed Minimum Income”, which has already been programmed into the narrative over the last ten years. On many levels, the solutions our governments are coming up with are worse than the epidemic. But there is a method to their madness. I suggest if you do not know about Agenda 21 and 30, it might be a good time to do your homework.
But on a human level, there are positives out there. Parents are playing with their children for the first time in who knows when, relationships are getting better, some are getting worse. With many families under quarantine are at long last getting to know each other again. Asking each other “Where have you been these last few years?” Hopefully people are also thinking about the need to stop spending money for things we don’t need, with money we don’t have.
What scares me is how many sheeple have become afraid of their own shadows, believe the fear-mongering by the government talking heads on TV, and are willing to give up any freedom they had for security. Or as Benjamin Franklin once said: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
I foresee that soon the global population will be vaccinated. No matter how one feels or thinks about vaccines, after the COVID-19 pandemic, many are predicting that people will have to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to do anything at all such as study, work, travel, and receive government benefits. Being vaccinated, we will not care, as long as we stay alive. Unfortunately there are far worse things than death.
It’s like we’ve become packs of dogs where after a talking head stands up, points somewhere and yells “squirrel” at the top of their lungs, we all go off running, barking our heads off. But we are supposedly smarter than dogs, so we’ll go off running whenever a mainstream news talking head comes up with any number of words to replace the word squirrel, whether Russia!, Racist!, Ukraine!, Impeach!, or COVID-19! Then like a pack of dogs chasing a car and catching up to it, we don’t know what to do about it when we get there.
Playing the fear card, the CDC announces that, worst case scenario, more than 150 to 200 million infections will happen in the US. This estimate is hundreds of times bigger than China’s infection rate (30% of the US population compared to 0.006% in China). Does that really sound plausible to you?
What I personally fear is the “shock doctrine”, as described by Canadian writer Naomi Klein, that is being played out yet once again. It is when collective crises or disasters happen (real or manufactured) are used to push through deeply unpopular policies on people and societies who are disorientated to notice or even protect their own interests. Klein calls this “disaster capitalism”. For instance, a month and a half after 9/11 the US passed their insidious Patriot Act without anyone in the public knowing or caring that many of their rights and privacy had been taken away and the country has been fighting wars ever since. Many people believe today is one of those moments where the global elite are rolling out a pre-planned phase of social and economic chaos, and which afterwards their totalitarian new world order will be unleashed. Order from the chaos they say.
And as already mentioned Agenda 21 is their plan. It is an inventory and control plan of all things; food, land, water, energy, minerals, plants, animals, construction, all means of production, information, and all people. It is a plan for the destruction of representative government, and for unelected regional boards to take its place. It is mostly driven because the current and past lifestyle consumption patterns of a once large affluent middle class (the baby boomers) are no longer sustainable. Consumption patterns that the globalists created, but now deemed a problem. A classic “problem reaction solution”, where solutions they created goes to the problems they created. To end the focus on personal responsibility and instead make the solution a collective action. Basically a herd where one size fits all. So because of our meat intake, consumption of frozen processed convenient food, use of fossil fuels, use of motor vehicles, air-conditioning, a huge inventory of small electrical appliances and suburban housing, but a few examples, the globalists will make it sustainable not by getting rid of such things, but by controlling such things.
In a large nut shell, the globalist’s agendas are behind zoning, land and water use control, wealth redistribution, one cashless currency, cap and trade, smart grid of AI and 5G, smart meters, carbon taxes, high gasoline prices, global citizens, global public education system, common core nationalized education standards, bio-fuels, Marxist ideology advancing across the world, food control, gun control, health control, unchecked immigration and open borders so as to strip countries of their identity, and color-coded uprisings and other coups against the few countries left in the world who do not abide by the globalist’s central bank system. There plan also includes a digitalised smart grid and ‘internet of things’, a robotic transport system, facial recognition population surveillance programs, new strains of genetically modified organisms and vaccines, control of private land, and shorelines, whether of oceans, lakes or rivers, one military/intelligence machine, complete command and control, and one centralized unelected body governing the world.
They must also re-set global finance, to pretend they support any Green New Deals which wave the flag of Zero carbon. The extinction rebellion folks, paid by the globalists, specifically George Soros, are over-joyed over the fact as the global economy shuts down as does carbon emissions, and that the elderly are being culled from the global population, easing even more stress on Mother Earth.
Which brings us to one of the most important parts of their agenda, depopulation. In order to keep the house of cards standing, it has been postulated that such people-hating globalist’s plans hinge on sacrificing the working poor, the impoverished, seniors on fixed incomes, people with disabilities, and the tens of millions of people living between starvation and death. Afterwards, the percentage of people left will continue status quo, then a few years down the road, with ever more dwindling resources, another cull would then be needed.
Perhaps, this is what our world is going through today. The scare tactics being employed are more dangerous than the virus that is the excuse for deploying them. Under this induced state of fear, hysteria, and anxiety all sorts of nefarious endeavours are being played out. Its success depends upon “a large body of people following the instructions passed down by the political puppets of the deep state and by the cowardly repetition of these instructions by the mainstream media.”
And that those able to recognize the true nature of the scam are being forced into not stepping out of line, “thereby risking their job, security or status within the rigidly enforced master/slave relationship of the status quo. By complying with it such a narrative, a mute populace establishes the basis of its own debasement and slavery.”
Mar. 25th. The US announces a sweeping $2 trillion measure to aid workers, businesses, families, and a strained healthcare system. Meanwhile, they and we in Canada, get over 70% of our pharmaceuticals, most of our antibiotics, and drugs such as Advil and Ibuprofen, from China. Or rather used to get.
India’s 1.3 billion people have joined the global lock-down, and Spain recorded more than 700 deaths over the past 24 hours, surpassing China in the total death toll, making the country now second to only Italy.
Mainstream news runs with the story that a man has died from the previously mentioned drug, chloroquine. Of course what they didn’t tell you was that the man actually died from ingesting another type of chloroquine, which is used to clean out bacteria in fish-tanks.
Extinction Rebellion affiliate in East Midlands, England, start putting up posters around the region exclaiming that “Corona is the Cure. Humans are the disease”, and announcing that the virus is revenge for climate change.
On all the finger pointing going around, on Jan. 21st the first case of human-to-human transmission of the coronavirus was recorded. Two days later, and with only 500 confirmed cases and 17 deaths, China shut down most of the nation and enacted a city-wide quarantine of Wuhan. Even though such an early and clear and present danger signal shot across their bows, how did Europe and the US react? Italy, with a population around 4% of that of China, did not instate a national lock-down until after it reached some 12,462 confirmed cases and 827 deaths. Many doctors there now recall seeing “very strange pneumonia, very severe, particularly in old people in December and even November.” When Italy shut itself down, the UK were doing the “ignore the virus to hopefully build a “herd mentality” routine, then a week later quickly changed it’s policy. The US did nothing domestically to prepare for the virus until mid-March when hospitals began to be saturated with patients, doctors ran out of basic medical supplies, and cities and states across the nation began shutting down.
Other questioning voices have recently been heard as to some extraordinary anomalies, such as the dramatic differences among the dead from Coronavirus between, say, Italy and Germany. For example, on Mar. 19Th, there were 52 deaths in Germany and 3,405 in Italy. The difference is in Germany, whoever dies of cancer, pneumonia, cardiac arrest and Coronavirus, is considered as having died of cancer, pneumonia etc. That is, the virus is not computed as the cause of death, unless it is the exclusive cause. In Italy, instead, whoever has contracted the Coronavirus, is deemed to have died from it – if he dies – along with pre-existing pathologies. Aware of this statistical anomaly the Italian Superior Institute for Health has published an analysis based on the medical records of the deceased, that is, those who died from existing causes, to which the coronavirus may have contributed, and those who died from the coronavirus. In this new statistic, the percentage is 0.8%, comparable to the numbers in Germany.
As to the belief, bat-eating Chinese people caused the current COVID-19 pandemic. According to the most recent science research, the origin of the COVID-19 is actually unknown. And shows it is unlikely that bat consumption caused it. Most scientists believe that the virus did not enter the human population directly but through an intermediate host such as pangolins (scaly anteaters), civets, ferrets, or even turtles, pigs, or cats. The much studied 2003 SARS virus – a cousin of the COVID-19 virus – for example, is thought to have leaped from bats to civet cats, mutating there before making a final jump to humans. Initially believed the virus to have originated in a seafood market in Wuhan, subsequent studies by researchers from Japan, Taiwan, and Mainland China itself have cast strong doubts on that theory, primarily because Chinese people as a whole generally do not have a tradition of eating bats. Journalists from France 24 TV recently tracked down the makers of five of the six most-shared videos and found that none of these videos were filmed in Wuhan, or in China, as many netizens had claimed. Instead, all videos were filmed in Palau or Indonesia, in locales where bats have traditionally been consumed as food, and where adventurous visitors from around the world are welcomed to sample their local, traditional cuisine.
And though the COVID-19 epidemic first arose in Wuhan it doesn’t necessarily mean that the virus must have arisen there. Take the AIDS epidemic as an example. While the AIDS epidemic arose in Los Angeles in the 1970’s, the HIV virus actually arose in the human population much earlier – around 1908, in the southeastern corner of what is present day Cameroon. The virus then mutated and spread within the human population for more than half a century – below everyone’s radar – before exploding onto the global scene in the 1970’s.
In Canada, there were 145 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in BC, bringing the total to 617. There are now 44 cases on Vancouver Island, 330 in the Vancouver Coast Health Authority, 194 in Fraser Health, 41 in Interior Health and nine in Northern Health. Fifty-nine people are in hospital, including 23 in intensive care units. Eight long-term care homes now have cases of the virus, up two from on Monday (23rd). The two new facilities affected are Little Mountain in Vancouver and Evergreen Heights in White Rock. Each has one resident and one staff member with COVID-19.
The Lynn Valley Care Centre in North Vancouver has had 42 cases, and 10 of the 13 deaths in BC from the virus. Only 30,000 people in the province have been tested for the virus.
The BC government has closed six provincial parks (all having a beach) on Vancouver Island amid concerns that a spike in visitors was putting people’s health at risk during the outbreak. The city of Victoria is going to allow temporary shelters for the homeless at Beacon Hill and Topaz parks during the outbreak. What they will do after the epidemic, they haven’t thought about yet.
The casual attitude that some take toward physical distancing has pissed off many, so social media is full of calls to enforce the kinds of lock-downs seen in other countries, with police fining, even jailing, those who venture from their homes without proof of a valid reason. Vancouver city council has just armed itself with the ability to slap fines of up to $50,000 for businesses, $1,000 for individuals, on those who break emergency orders. Following Victoria’s lead, West Shore Parks and Rec and Saanich, worried that people weren’t following social-distancing measures either, closed their playing fields and other outdoor facilities Monday. The harbour authority closed the Ogden Point breakwater for the same reasons.
Data shows roughly half of the more than 2,790 people in Canada with the coronavirus got it from community transmission. This is a dramatic shift in how the virus is spread. According to Canada’s chief medical health officer, Dr. Theresa Tam, the trend is turning toward community transmission, as opposed to contracting the coronavirus from travel. Twenty-seven people have died of COVID-19 to date in Canada. Of the cases reported, approximately half (53%) are male and approximately one third (30%) of cases are 60 years old and over. The date of symptom onset of the first case of COVID-19 in Canada was January 15, 2020, more than two months ago.
The Canadian government has no immediate plans to use cellphone data to track people’s movements during the COVID-19 crisis, but the prime minister did not rule out resorting to the tool at some point, saying “all options are on the table” to keep Canadians safe in exceptional times. Trudeau’s comments followed suggestions that municipal officials in Ottawa and Toronto were considering use of telecommunications data to monitor people’s whereabouts in the fight against the virus. Cellphone data could be used to create a “heat map” of where people are congregating or even to pinpoint an infected person’s location.
Russia, which has recorded 1036 cases of the coronavirus, and 4 deaths, orders all cinemas, nightclubs and children’s play areas in the country to close, after barring foreigners and closing borders back on Jan.31st. Bars and restaurants are still open and people are allowed to travel freely but to avoid non-essential trips, avoid leaving home and of course keep social distancing. Singapore, who also closed it’s borders on Jan 31st, so far has had 2 deaths, and have made standing too close to someone now illegal.
Poland has also ratcheted up its restrictions on movement and gatherings in an effort to slow the accelerating spread of coronavirus. The new measures, which will apply from today until April 11, would restrict people to only being allowed to leave their homes for essential work, visits to the doctor or pharmacy, to buy food, or to walk the dog.
In Philadelphia, the Police Department has been instructed its offices to temporarily stop making arrests for certain nonviolent crimes, including drug offences, burglary, economic theft and vandalism, until next month. With the arresting officers detaining the offender, processing the paperwork, and then releasing the offender back into the general population. The announcement came 24 hours after Philadelphia courts closed until April 1 to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
In Fort Worth, Texas, the police will cease arresting people for “low-level crimes” (Class C misdemeanours) such as thefts involving less than $100 and vandalism, if a citation can be issued in its place.
In California, officials say 56 percent of the state, or more than 20 million people could be infected, even though just 2,724 positive cases and 59 deaths have been reported in the state thus far. They also announced a “stay home” order for the state’s nearly 40 million residents. The clampdown includes the closure of various types of businesses, including dine-in restaurants, entertainment venues and public events and gatherings. The state’s Department of Water and Power announced they will shut off water and power for the businesses that don’t comply with the “safer at home” ordinance.
In Los Angeles (pop. 4 million – 669 cases and 11 deaths), the LA County Sheriff ordered all gun stores closed (fearing that too many first-time gun-owners were getting access to weapons), though this has since been overturned. And LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, lashed out at non-essential stores that refuse to close, making ominous threats. This all seems to be accelerating down the extremely slippery slope towards full authoritarian control, something the politicians will be unwilling to easily give up once this crisis blows through.
About 56% of all new cases in the US are in New York City, while 60% of all US new cases are in New York State. To-date New York City has 14,776 cases and 131 related deaths, amongst it nearly 19 million people. Overall, as of today (Mar.25) the US has 55,568 cases, with 809 deaths.
And finally, the conclusion of a four year investigation by researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks was published, which determined that the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 on September 11th, 2001 was not caused by fire. The peer-reviewed inquiry was funded by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, a nonprofit organization composed of more than 3,000 building architects and engineers who are a signatory to the group’s formal appeal calling for a new investigation into the three, not two, WTC skyscrapers destroyed on 9/11. The researchers infer that the collapse of Building 7 was actually the result of a controlled demolition:
“The principal conclusion of our study is that fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and private engineering firms that studied the collapse. The secondary conclusion of our study is that the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.”
Mar. 26Th: From 0 to 250,000 cases: 3 months. From 250,000 to 500,000 cases: 1 week. Epidemiologists expect 2-3 million cases will be diagnosed eventually, and with approximately an average mortality rate of 1.5%, about 37,500 deaths, then will drop off. Once again comparably, 85 million die each year from diabetes, 59 million from influenza and pneumonia, in fact, pneumonia kills more than 800,000 children under the age of 5 each year. (67,000 a month) Accounting for 15% of all deaths of children under five years old. Aspiration Pneumonia alone has a mortality rate of 21% overall, 29% hospital-associated, and 30-62% in “older, sicker patients”. On average, 9,300 people die on the planet every year from natural disasters, 26,000 from terrorism, and in the US alone, around 167,500 people die each year from accidents/unintentional injuries (48 per 100,000). Speaking of “per 100,000”, with all other demographic/population, murder, birth, death, etc, rates, the standard is “per 100,000 people”. So lets do that. Current Covid deaths per 100,000 people: Italy- 9.4 deaths per 100,000, Spain- 4.3 per, Iran- 2.2 per, Switzerland- 1.4 per, France- 1.3 per, Netherlands- 1.2 per, UK- 0.5 per, South Korea- 0.2 per, US- 0.2 per, Germany and Canada- 0.1 per. This may all change, if say the virus mutates, but we still of course do not know. But we do know how nature works.
While regions in France have just banned all sales of alcohol, and in the US pot dispensaries are now deemed “essential businesses” and may stay open, in Canada, we are now under a mandatory quarantine. If you do not abide by the actions of keeping social distancing and not going to a beach, you can now be fined up to $750,000 or 6 months in jail (just as governments are emptying their prison populations of the least violent offenders, because of COVID). If you are deemed a danger to someone’s life, like forcing a hug on someone or refusing to get out of their now expanded “safe space” its a one million dollar fine and/or five years in prison. And what if, COVID becomes just another seasonal flu? When does the lock-down end?
Canada also announced an $82 billion emergency bill to help workers, business’ and households, and to help them meet their liquidity needs. $30 million of the plan is going to the media “for advertising”. So that we continue to have the latest news and information given to us through verbiage and dramatic visuals of the global elite’s mouthpieces. In fact, the Canadian government has given $30 million to the media each year since the Liberals have been in power. In a blatant quid pro quo, mainstream media then tell only one narrative that they are told to tell, and tell it repetitively. The same message no matter what site, TV channel, or radio station.
Canada has also earmarked $50 million, as part of its response to today’s launch of the United Nations $2 billion, COVID-19 humanitarian response plan. Which is calling for a co-ordinated response to “help the world’s war-torn, displaced and most destitute people, who are facing new misery because of the pandemic”. Or as Canada’s International Development Minister Karina Gould stated, “It’s a bit of an enlightened self-interest, to help the world’s most desperate people fight COVID-19 because it is in the country’s long-term security interest as well as being the right thing to do.” The appeal is targeting the spread of the virus in South America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. One just has to ask, why not help Canadians? Why are we sending supplies our own health care workers desperately need, elsewhere. The government’s wet cardboard stand is that such foreign aid “protects Canada’s future security and economic prosperity from a virus that knows no borders.”
After millions of Chinese left China when the virus was spreading, before they were locked-down, today, China claims it has its domestic outbreak under control and that their new cases are only from foreigners, they have decided to suspend entry of all foreigners’ entry to China, including the entry of foreigners with currently valid visas and residence permits.
Jeff Bezos and other corporate executives across the country sold approximately $9.2 billion in shares of their own companies between early February and the end of last week, salvaging potential losses of up to $1.9 billion, according to an analysis of more than 4,000 regulatory filings by the Wall Street Journal. Richest man in the world Bezos, was the largest seller selling $3.4 billion in Amazon shares the first week of February, right before the market peaked, avoiding paper losses of approximately $317 million through March 20. The sale constituted roughly 3% of his holdings and was nearly as much stock as he sold during the previous 12 months.
With lock-downs spreading, as we continue to be abused by government and mainstream media, and give up ever more of our freedoms, it seems our reaction might prove to be deadlier than the virus will ever be. And remember, with the ongoing lock-downs, all demonstrations, protests, marches, festivals, fairs, concerts, blockades, and town hall meetings are done. Perhaps never to be allowed again. The whole unity thing, of people coming together to rise up before injustices, walking arm in arm and hand in hand by the sometimes hundreds of thousands is no more. And we folded like a cheap suit. What sickens me is how easily we surrendered. We all know something is going on. But, seemingly at the drop of a hat or because somebody yelled squirrel, we easily and very quickly, erased any logic, common sense, reasoning, and rational thinking we had left. We should be asking questions and not allowing the media and sheeple to form or shape our thoughts and emotions.
A list of twelve medical experts whose opinions on the Coronavirus outbreak contradict the official narratives of the mainstream media, and the memes so prevalent on social media. Or as one of them, Dr Peter Goetzsche, Professor of Clinical Research Design and Analysis at the University of Copenhagen and founder of the Cochrane Medical Collaboration, states, “Should it turn out that the epidemic wanes before long, there will be a queue of people wanting to take credit for this. And we can be damned sure draconian measures will be applied again next time. But remember the joke about tigers. “Why do you blow the horn?” “To keep the tigers away.” “But there are no tigers here.” “There you see!”
While Bill Gates suggest that the US go into a 10 week nation-wide shutdown, everyone be tested, and everyone be vaccinated, when they become available in perhaps 18 months.
Mar. 27Th : The facts to date of Covid -19. It is a new virus, not a flu. Antibiotics do not work against viral infections. And it is more severe than the flu because it’s new to our bodies, so we have yet to develop an immune system which can take it on. It is passed around by physical contact and in droplet form, from shaking hands etc. If transmitted airborne from a cough or sneeze or even just breathing it can linger in the air for up to 3 hours. But then we are talking still air, for Covid-19 is not wind resistant. And it is transmitted from us touching surfaces where a droplet of Covid lies, for up to 3 hours. Especially stainless steel and plastic surfaces. So wash hands often and more importantly become more aware and conscious of what your hands touch, and stop playing with your face. And as already mentioned cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing, which we should have been doing our whole lives. And remember social distancing does not mean social isolation.
Start honouring the incredible intelligence of our own bodies and become more aware of what we put into them. As to this new virus, the body knows more what it has to do then we do. It is adapting to take on this new threat to it’s existence, by developing it’s immune system. The best thing we can do to help strengthen it is by relieving our stress levels, by taking a very large chill pill. But which mainstream news are trying to keep elevated. Exercise, walk, and stretch. Think nutrition and natural supplements, like Vitamin C, Zinc, anti-viral mushrooms, such as Reishi and Agarikon, which are anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral and other traditional and natural medicines.
At this point in time we are past the point of being able to contain the spread. It is now all about reducing and mitigating the problem. The biggest problem that is arising in many countries is that their health care capacity is being overwhelmed. The US, Spain and Italy are getting so hard hurt because they waited too long to take action and unlike China, South Korea, Germany, Canada, the UK, and other countries, they lack a national, publicly-funded universal health care system. As for the US health care system, both heads of the US’s two-headed one-party system have spent decades pandering to, and giving the majority of government money (their citizens money) to the banks, corporations and the military. This has created their current situation where uninsured COVID-19 patients are racking up $35,000 medical bills, with even insured patients paying out-of-pocket expenses in excess of $1,300. And along with the millions of Americans getting thrown off of employer-provided health insurance, and millions now unemployed, their health system crash is inevitable, or as comedian Megan Amram tweeted a couple of weeks ago, “Corona is a black light and America is a cum-stained hotel room.”
As for the US health system, of the US’s federal budget this year ($4.407 trillion), $2.739 trillion of it is mandatory spending (providing for individuals who need help in some capacity). This includes Social Security (including programs like unemployment benefits and welfare), which demands $1.046 trillion of it. The remaining mandatory spending budget ($1.693 trillion) is spent on items such as Medicare and Medicaid. Both of which are vital and necessary programs, but are not self-sustaining. Medicare is currently underfunded, relying on general tax dollars to make up the difference. Only a portion of the $625 billion Medicare budget is covered by Medicare taxes. More than what they spend on their health care system, they also have a $1.203-trillion discretionary spending budget. Nearly 70 % or more of which is spent on the military. In fact, the US allocates more money to military spending than the next 10 countries combined. The discretionary budget pays for such things as the Department of Defense, all military spending, Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense and Homeland Security, and 17 intelligence-surveillance agencies, 70% of whose monies is then paid out to private defense contractors and mercenaries. Brown University professor and Co-director of the Costs of War Project at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, Catherine Lutz, found that “if you count all parts of the federal budget that are military-related, including the nuclear weapons budget, the budget for fuel for military vehicles and aircraft, funds for veteran care, etc, it makes up two-thirds of the federal budget, and it’s inching toward three-quarters.”
The remaining US federal budget must cover all other domestic programs, which include funding for education, health and human services, housing, urban development, administration of justice, natural resources and environment, the Department of Energy, science, space, and technology. And of course paying interest on the US current debt of $23 trillion.
In comparison to their recent $2 trillion package to fight the coronavirus, among other things, since 9/11, the US has spent the last twenty years at war against terrorism, spending upwards of an estimated $6.4 trillion, of which $1.9 trillion was spent in Iraq, and mostly to arms manufacturers. Their “War on Terror”, has also cost at least 801,000 lives who have died due to direct war violence, and several times as many indirectly, with over 335,000 civilians killed as a result of the fighting, with 21 million war refugees and displaced people and counting. If one were to add to these numbers indirect deaths, namely those caused by loss of access to food, water, and/or infrastructure, war-related disease, etc, then the total deaths to-date, in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, and Yemen is likely to reach 3.1 million or more, around 200 times the number of US dead.
The US, besides currently conducting counter-terror activities in over 80 countries, have also flaunted constitutional, international and moral law, and continue to perpetuate crimes against humanity, all the while enabled by a seemingly morally lost, misinformed, dumb-downed, and apathetic populace. In further revenge against the 9/11 attacks, they seem to have also destroyed their middle class, bailed out the banks, and have been able to replace basic rights, privacy and freedoms with government granted privileges. Now it’s the “WAR on COVID”. But we must remember that, historically, even though they are often late for the party and inept when crises first appear, once they go on a “war-footing” and crank up their capabilities, shit gets done. We’ll have to see if they’ve still got it in them. For this crisis is not due to a lack of of health spending, but from a lack of foresight, prevention and management. And it is often the case is such crises that, using South Korea and Singapore as examples today, they are overcome thanks to human ingenuity, science, technology, and business, rather than the interventionists idea to manipulate the economy and society, which will cost so much more, in lives, employment, growth, and in opportunities.
The key to nipping this virus epidemic in the butt is speed. WHO’s Bruce Aylward has said, “the faster you can find the cases, isolate the cases and track their close contacts the more successful you’re going to be.” Author, scientist, researcher, and educator, Gregg Braden, who does very well, linking science and spirituality, has said that we must stop filling our days with diversions and instead look within. To honour our body. To rationally realize that after this epidemic, it will be a new normal for our societies, economics and lifestyles, because our just past normal was no longer sustainable. And he stresses that the key is, “To know that we will get through this, but what comes afterwards will be determined by how we respond right now.” We must also remember that in times of crisis a person’s true character comes out and shows itself, or doesn’t.
Research of 20th century epidemics show that most cases of viral infections show up in the months of March, April, and May, then taper out over the summer. Today, according to when the first cases appeared, and acceleration rates, the virus possibly, will peak in about five weeks, then fading in June, July and August.
The US now has 101,321 cases with 5 deaths per million people or 0.2 per 100,000. In Canada, 4,689 cases and one death per million people or 0.7 per 100,000. Testing is accelerating, and apart from high incident/density populated areas such as New York, L.A., and others, 90% are testing negative.
Globally, of the 7.53 billion people on the planet, .00036 have died from COVID or about .02 people per 100,000.
Mar. 29Th : Here in BC, with a population of five million people, half of whom live in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, there has been 884 COVID cases, with 81 hospitalized, of those, 52 are in intensive care. And there have been 17 deaths, most all, in care homes. On Vancouver Island (pop. 794,000) there are 60 cases, three currently hospitalized, and no deaths to-date.
These numbers are below the trends that Provincial officials have been using, where it is being presumed that 14% of patients (one in seven) would need to be hospitalized for about 12 days. Another five per cent (one in 20) would be in intensive care for at least 10 days, with 80% of them needing the assistance of a mechanical ventilator to breathe. BC also announced they are testing anti-malarial and anti-viral drugs at an “undisclosed facility.”
In the US more than 600,000 people have now been tested, with nearly 500,000 testing negative. More than 14,000 people have been hospitalized, with over 2,400 deaths (one in six). The majority of cases and nearly half of all deaths in the US, are currently happening in the dense and “practically living on top of each other” New York City. The US extended their federal social distancing guidelines for an additional 30 days, up to April 30.
Latest numbers out of South Korea show that 99% of all their cases were/are mild.
And while most of us here in BC are following the government guidelines; larger safe space when outside, washing hands, self-isolating themselves, etc, which is showing in the above numbers to be working, I worry about our mental health. Talking to some people I hear the fear in their voices. The stress of being isolated from others, fear they might have the disease, and the fear of leaving their homes. Some are even having serious medical concerns but too afraid to go to emergency, because then they surely will get it and die. Add in the fact that much of the population are already medicated, many are afraid of having to re-fill a prescription. Let alone, able to see one’s doctor at the clinic. I have a tooth that’s starting to hurt. Do I pull out the old string and prepare a doorknob?
Here in Victoria I took a drive today, since it was a mild sunny Sunday afternoon. Downtown, people were out and about, though scattered and keeping their distance from each other. It was a beautiful day. Traffic was minimally average for a Sunday, though many businesses are shut-down. I went into a supermarket to replenish coffee and banana stocks, and everyone was staying away from each other. Silently people were restricting the aisles to one or two at a time. Nobody was sneezing or coughing, and if they did, they would hopefully have covered up, and people would take a very wide berth passing around them. No one was excessively fondling the products and shelves were filled with toilet paper. I did pick up something fresh for a change, six croissants, which I use as hot-dog buns. A treat unto itself. When I got home, I used a sterilized wipe on the steering wheel, and when I got back down to the boat I washed my hands as if I was a surgeon.
With most downtown businesses closed, the heavily addicted and often mentally ill homeless have been setting up camp in their door and entry ways. Three blocks of Pandora and parts of Johnson street looked like a meth-head festival (which are currently banned, festivals that is), and are now dense tent cities. The drug trade has never had it so good. All their customers all in one place living practicality on top of each other. Have they washed their hands today. But then, where are they going to even do that? Or is the virus being relied on to dwindle their numbers, just like the virus is maybe being relied upon to dwindle those seniors in care homes who are on either government or privately insured assistance? Just asking, because the adage the elite treasure, “never let a crises go to waste” keeps surfacing.
The psychological impact of this coronavirus crisis is going to stay with us for a very long time. I wonder what the effects are going to be on the children of today, and who they will become. Because of our decisions and actions today.
Mar. 30th With many of us just hanging out at home now, try to the best of your ability to ignore the 24/7 mainstream news cycles, repeated over and over again. This only leads to doom and gloom, depression, anxiety and a loss of hope. Their agenda is completely different from ours. Focusing on the big numbers like coronavirus cases, instead of the fact that only 10% of those with the virus have to go to a hospital. Instead take that time to look at the device which can repel such a virus. Your body. Coronavirus, in all it’s forms, kills people whose immune systems are compromised or they don’t have one, and/or from pre-existing health problems. If you are going to wait for the government or the pharmaceutical industry to save you. Good luck with that. Focus on what you put into your body instead.
Besides all the other very promising options the medical world are quickly looking at today, with an actual vaccine perhaps a year away, one can include Vitamin C. The pharmaceutical industry would rather I hadn’t just typed that, because there is no patent on Vitamin C. One of the biggest things this vitamin does is attack inflammation, and COVID is all about inflammation. This is what actual kills people who have the virus, for it overpowers our immune system through inflammation. Studies over decades, have shown that if enough oral Vitamin C is taken at an early enough stage of an illness the inflammation can be stopped, and unable to ever get to the exponential growth phase. As of right now, there are doctors in China, the US and elsewhere, who are using intravenous Vitamin C on virus patients with great success. The medical journal Lancet reports that 100% of the early COVID deaths in Wuhan, China, had sepsis (a condition that can be compared to pneumonia). Vitamin C would have helped with stopping the growth of inflammation, thus less deaths. A doctor in the US used intravenous Vitamin C treating his patients, and reduced the death rate from sepsis, from 40% down to 8.5%. It has been said that in treating inflammation, “Vitamin C is like water on a fire.”
In early March, the Chinese Journal of Infectious Diseases, pre-published the Expert Consensus on Comprehensive Treatment of Coronavirus. Treatment recommendations included, “large doses of vitamin C…injected intravenously at a dose of 100 to 200 mg / per kg per day. The duration of continuous use is to significantly improve the oxygenation index.” That’s the reason why 50 tons of Vitamin C was shipped to Hubei province in early February. It’s a stark example of a simple “mitigation” solution capable of minimizing economic catastrophe.
Italy, where they not only shake hands but kiss each other on each cheek, and as already mentioned have the second highest population of seniors in the world, has perhaps hit it’s peak, and rates will hopefully begin to drop. Oddly, the US and the European Union have turned their backs on them during the crises. So Russia, China, and Cuba stepped up to the plate instead, to assist the shocked nation.
Many people get sick with a virus a few times a year, and like clock work each new seasonal flu season brings a new strain. Globally, about one billion people catch the seasonal flu, five million of which are severe. Between 291,000 to 646,000 people who are elderly and with compromised immune systems die each year (0.1% of global population). They spread through respiratory droplets, with each diagnosed person passing it on to 1.3 persons. There are many vaccines available that provide immunity against multiple strains of influenza. With the economy never having to shut down because of it.
The 2009 swine flu pandemic was an influenza pandemic that lasted from January 2009 to August 2010, and the second of the two pandemics involving the H1N1 influenza virus (the first being the 1918–1920 Spanish flu pandemic), but simply a new strain. The first case was in Mexico, and the media soon had people panicking because it was a new strain which was spreading fast with no known vaccine. About 24% (700 million to 1.4 billion) of the global population got it, 60.8 million in the US, while in Canada it affected about 10% of the population (or 3.5 million). There were 284,000 global deaths (0.2% of the population), 12,469 in the US and 428 deaths in Canada. Children had the highest rates. Forty-seven per cent of children between 5 and 19 developed symptoms compared to 11% of people ages 65 and up. Treatment included the antivirals (oseltamivir and zanamivir), with most people recovering without complications. The BC government reported 1,060 severe flu cases as of Feb 2, 2010, with 49 of 56 fatalities, people with underlying medical conditions. There was no self isolation, stay at home orders given, with only a minority of schools actually shutting down because of it. At no time did the economy have to shut down. Since, about 40% of Canadians have been immunized against H1N1. Meanwhile, smoking kills one hundred people a day in Canada, but I digress.
Interesting tidbit of information, as to our health. According to a major analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD), done seven years ago, in 2013, and published in The Lancet. At the time, just one in 20 people worldwide (4.3%) had no health problems whatsoever, while a third of the world’s population at the time of seven billion people, (2.3 billion individuals) were experiencing more than five ailments. Since, has our society become healthier. I figure it all depends where you live and who you are.
Mar.31st In Canada, people are facing fines for endangering others by failing to close small businesses, limit gatherings, and people who have the disease who have been ordered to stay isolated at home, but go out anyways, are being arrested. To clear all this up I’m sure everyone will soon be tested whether you want to or not, and documentation will be given to show if they have tested either positive or negative. The negatives will be allowed out to carry out essential services, such as acquiring food and supplies, while the positives will not be allowed to leave their homes, with about one in ten needing to be hospitalized. As for the acquiring part, the government will no doubt soon declare all coin and currency as unsafe due to the virus and force the digitization of the entire country.
Here on Vancouver Island, there are 67 confirmed cases, with four people hospitalized. At the ready, the Island has 96 intensive care unit beds, and 140 ventilators, including 22 transport ventilators used in ambulances, helicopters and airplanes.
Hours after laying off more than 20,000 educational workers, the Alberta government gives $1.1 billion to Canada’s largest oil company, TC Energy, so that they can start construction on the Keystone XL pipeline, which will run from the tar sands near Hardisty, Alberta, 1,897 km south to the US state of Nebraska. Though once they hit the border they will have to stop, because the pipeline is tied up with multiple lawsuits in the US, and they do not have the permits and regulatory approvals necessary to move forward.
Today, a week was a long time ago, so there is no doubt the numbers in an Angus Reid poll put out on Mar.22nd, have only increased. In the previous six weeks, people worried about getting the virus’s disease went from 30% to 65%. Seventy-five per cent worried about family members and friends getting sick, and 66% worried about their own economic circumstances.
Also today, I drove over to Esquimalt to pay my storage locker fees, for anyone living on a boat usually has a storage locker somewhere. Anyways, the storage fellow was telling me he misses the drives he used to take to unwind. Motoring along Dallas road and Beach drive on a sunny Saturday, or out to Saanichton and the fields and open spaces. He doesn’t do these things anymore because he says he is afraid of getting into an accident, and having to be hospitalized, where he would then undoubtedly, die of the virus.
Back on Mar.16th, with the epidemic only worsening, and shutdowns being implemented elsewhere, Illinois billionaire and Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker was under pressure to do the same, and reschedule the Democratic primary to be held Mar.17th. This was about the halfway point in the Democrat presidential primaries, with 23 states still left to vote. But all of them began to postpone voting to a date to be announced. Except for Arizona, Florida, and Illinois. And on that day millions of voters and thousands of election workers went to voting sites. Two days later, with all results confirmed, Pritzker in Illinois, orders everyone to stay at home. Illinois and Florida are now two of the hotter spots in the US.
New York state had 1,412 coronavirus patients hospitalized on Monday (Mar.30th) marking the biggest single-day increase since the start of the outbreak in the state. Bringing the total number of hospitalizations to nearly 11,000, including 2,710 people in intensive care. California now has 6,932 confirmed virus cases statewide, with 150 deaths and 1,617 people hospitalized. California and New York populations combined, 60 million people (or two Canada’s). While so far this year, there have been 23,000 US deaths due to flu, and 3,000 from coronavirus.
The progressive socialist Spanish government, is facing legal action for alleged negligence in its handling of the coronavirus pandemic and unnecessarily worsening the humanitarian crisis now gripping Spain, currently the second-worst afflicted country in Europe after Italy. A class action lawsuit filed on Mar. 19, accuses the Spanish government of knowingly endangering public safety by encouraging the public to participate in more than 75 feminist marches, held across Spain on Mar. 8th, to mark International Women’s Day. This was also allowed to happen in many countries around the world, including the US and Canada. Hundreds of thousands or perhaps millions of people participated in those marches, as well as many high-profile attendees. It is unknown how many people were infected by the coronavirus as a result of the rallies.
Earlier, on Mar. 3rd, Spain announced that the first coronavirus fatality in Spain died on Feb. 13th, with health authorities not knowing he had the virus until 19 days after his death. Since coronavirus cases that end in death last between two and eight weeks, in addition to a 14-day incubation period, it is possible that the man was infected as early as the beginning of January. The same day, Spain and many other countries ordered major football, hockey, and basketball matches to be held behind closed doors with no spectators allowed, then soon cancelling all events altogether.
On March 7, the Spanish government’s, Fernando Simón, said in a nationwide press conference that there was no risk of attending the rallies on March 8. Insidiously perhaps, despite rising cases and those needing hospitalization, the government failed to report new coronavirus cases between March 6 and March 9, apparently in an effort to downplay the danger to the public of attending the rallies. The day after the rallies, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Madrid doubled in one day, and the President of the Autonomous Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, ordered all schools in the capital to be closed for at least two weeks. The decision by the regional government caught the central government by surprise and effectively forced it to act. Later that same day, Health Minister Salvador Illa recommended that all people with chronic diseases or multiple pathologies do not leave their homes except for emergencies.
Typical for this virus crises it seems, inept planning, lack of preparedness, and embarrassing leadership.
Apr. 1st. April Fool’s day, no kidding.
Instead of the decisions and lack there of, of governments around the world who did not prevent the global spread of the virus, and actually allowed it to be spread, Canadian PM Trudeau says the longer it takes for all Canadians to follow the rules and stay home the longer it will be before life can return to normal. When that time arrives he can’t say. It’s up to us now, if we win he gets the accolades, we lose and it’s because it was our fault. One scenario presented to cabinet is that the strict public health measures and quarantines will have to continue until at least July, but in his daily briefing to Canadians Trudeau said the length of the lock-downs will depend on “the choices and behaviour of Canadians.” And called on Canadians to “do their duty” as if we were being called to serve our country. “This is a service most of have never been called upon to do,” and that “The government alone cannot win this fight.” Though they allowed the foe to enter the ring in the first place, while knowing they were totally unprepared, but hoping being politically correct would somehow keep the monster at bay. He stated all this while still “self-isolated” at home after testing negative of the virus, and where he has been for three weeks now, while his wife, who tested positive, and their kids, are “self-isolated” in one of his other homes. But once a day he reads over the script given to him, steps out of his safe space lair and gives a speech, then answers questions from hand-picked reporters whose questions he already knew would be asked. Very unlike other world leaders who go out each day and face the music, with their coronavirus teams behind them, and stand before mainstream media without a script and answer questions from reporters from around the world, even from ones that are heavily biased and hate him or her, no matter what comes out of their mouths. But then the mainstream media today is sounding very much like they did during the wind up to the Iraqi invasion. When Saddam Hussein was the badman and building weapons of mass destruction.
Having lied for the past two months about the severity and the extent of coronavirus pandemic which its virologists started in Wuhan, and eager to convey the message that the crisis is now “under control” just so people return to work, full of hope and enthusiasm, and rejoicing at how they conquered the virus. Reuters reported that Jia county (pop.600,000) in central China’s Henan province, announced it had “virtually banned all outbound movement of people, following several cases of coronavirus infection in the area.” And that no one can travel out of Jia county without proper authorization. Additionally, residents are not allowed to leave their homes for work unless they have clearance to do so. And so, the virus is back to China, despite the best intentions of the World Health Organization and its Beijing sponsors to make it seem that China had managed to defeat the virus.
Possibly because the US president on Mar. 19th announced that several studies, and through anecdotal evidence, that the drug chloroquine appears to significantly limit the replication of COVID-19, particularly when combined with the antibiotic azithromycin (zithromax Z-pak). Last week, Democratic Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer sent a letter warning physicians and pharmacists of punishments and “administrative actions” such as revoking the medical licenses of doctors who prescribed hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, claiming that hydroxychloroquine had not met the benchmark for “proof of efficacy.” Four days later, Whitmer is now begging the federal government to send her hydroxychloroquine, because “We want to ensure that doctors have the ability to prescribe these medicines”, and that “We also want to make sure that the people who have prescriptions that predated COVID-19 have access to the medication they need. And so all of the work that we’ve done is trying to strike that balance.”
In many US cities, most businesses are not only closed, but their storefronts are now being boarded up. What are they expecting? But you already know what they are expecting. Unfortunately, much of the population actually believe that once the crisis is over everything will go back to normal. But was it really normal before? Personally I don’t think so, but there is still a sliver of hope in me that we could do much better if we get the chance, but another part of me thinks its a red pill/blue pill moment. Many of us took the red pill years ago, and found out about, and can see before us, the many once hidden, unpleasant truths. And realized that living the “truth of reality” is harsher, open to ridicule, and more difficult. But sadly, it seems the majority of the herd has been swallowing the blue pill, to remain in blissful ignorance. Living in confined comfort without want or fear within a manufactured reality.
Apr. 2nd. Here on Vancouver Island, the first two Covid deaths have been confirmed, with 72 cases and seven people hospitalized. In total, BC has 1,121 cases, 149 hospitalized with 68 in intensive care units, and 31 deaths. There are currently 4,171 empty beds at the ready, many of those due to cancellations of elective surgeries. Elsewhere, half the planet’s human population is now locked-down on some level.
My son came by yesterday and picked up my laundry because I was running out of clean clothes. So today I was out and about gathering a few necessities, like chocolate milk and a couple more boxes of Kraft dinner. Picked up my laundry, all meticulously folded and smelling fresh, and was able to chat and play with my granddaughter for a bit outside though I kept my distance, which she found odd, since she’s usually running into my arms and we are inseparable when together. During this self-isolation I think I miss her the most.
There was lighter than normal traffic, but being a sunny day people were out doing much the same. City workers were repairing curbs and working on various projects, landscapers were out in full force, and public transit is still running. What I especially noticed, even those just out walking, far less people had a phone in front of their face, and it seemed everyone was more aware of their surroundings and of each other. There was a lot of respecting others going around. It was wonderful to see.
If the virus hadn’t caused the current economic crash, something else would have. Any fall in revenue is indeed problematic, but manageable without excessive debt. Global debt as a percentage of GDP rose from 250% in 2007, to 325% in 2019. With current overall debt levels triple what they were in 1999. Today, for every $100 a typical Canadian earns, they owe $160.
On April 1st, the fracking shale for oil company, Whiting Petroleum, filed for bankruptcy and unable to pay it’s debts. Only five days after the company’s board approved $14.6 million in cash bonuses for it’s top executives.
In Sweden, Extinction Rebellion and Greta Tintin Eleonora Ernman Thunberg fans have been deliberately coughing, sneezing, and spitting beside the elderly “to save the planet.” But then they are living within the delusional world of pathetic fallacy, attaching human feelings to inanimate objects. The planet does not care about our feelings. The virus does not have feelings. Besides, it might very well be one day proven that human action has caused this epidemic. While others on the left of the spectrum are deeming the epidemic Mother Nature’s response to human transgression, or as our fore-bearers once viewed such disasters, as the gods enraged by human’s disrespect. But then the pause Covid has given us, could also be interpreted as perhaps a warning that maybe we’ve gone too far, and must alter our behaviour so that we don’t risk further contamination of ourselves and the environment as well.
Even after colleges around the US cancelled classes or converted to all-digital learning, hundreds of thousands of “Covidiot” teenagers and early twenty-somethings, enjoying the extended spring break of their dreams on beaches everywhere. But as studies are now showing, such “selfishly ignorant” teenagers helped spread the virus around the country. But then these are young people who are almost pathologically incapable of staying at home and doing nothing, because that are being raised by parents who have made themselves impotent, by being their “buddies” instead of being parents. Some parents are still allowing kids to have group sleepovers and parties.
“Maybe these kids will remember the coronavirus as their big struggle, their “World War II” as it were. Though, given the tendency to accept and embellish unpleasant experiences into “traumas”, we imagine that American teens will use this as one more excuse why the government owes them every handout imaginable, from paying off their student loans to covering health-care costs for life.”
And even though in the propaganda world, a “wet market” sounds more dramatic than a “lab”, evidence is mounting that the origin of the virus probably came out of a lab in Wuhan and not the wet market just a few kilometers down the street. With that being said, so far China has offered Covid-19-related equipment and medical help to no fewer than 89 nations – and counting. Including Africa (especially South Africa, Namibia and Kenya, but also to many other African nations; Latin America (Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Peru); the arc from East Asia to Southwest Asia; and Europe. Key recipients in Europe include Italy, France, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Serbia and Poland. Most are donations. Some are trade – like millions of masks sold to France and the US.
Another ploy to strike fear into the masses, the mainstream media is screaming that the US now has double! the confirmed cases of Covid than Italy, the next highest country! What they forget to say, in their need for ratings and clicks, is, of course. Italy’s population of 60 million is only one fifth of the US’s 330 million.
Peace. Stay calm and rational. If the sun is out, stand outside or open the window and look at it with your eyes closed for a few moments, and just focus on its warmth upon your face, and nothing else.
Apr. 3rd. The reason I began this Covid timeline was because I had so many friends and family, many which I hadn’t talked to in awhile call me, and after some small talk ask, what’s really going on. For they knew I gleefully dabbled in going down rabbit holes in search of truth. And many no doubt thought I was what the CIA has termed a conspiracy theorist, though they never held it against me, for I sometimes made sense whether they wanted to believe it or not. I found many conspiracy theories simply fiction, but I also found many to be based on facts, reasoning and common sense, rather than what mainstream media and the education system wants us to believe instead. So trying to be not so long-winded.
Theory has it that the New World Order (NWO) concept is simply the wish of a handful of international bankers that want to economically and politically rule the whole planet as one happy family. Such an order used to be called simply an empire, and actually started back in 1773, at the height of the British global empire. But really picked up steam after the discovery of oil in the late 19th century. Since 1944, they began looting the planet by using the US dollar as the weapon of choice. They are now threatened by hyperinflation, as their printing machine has been rotating for years to cover their absurd spending to sustain oil and resource wars that they’ve all ultimately lost. In order to prevent this upcoming hyperinflation, they have perhaps generated a virus attack on four countries (China, Iran, Italy and now the US) to spread panic in the population, with the artful help of their shameless mainstream media. Even though this coronavirus isn’t different from any new viruses that attack humans every year, the media scare pushed people to voluntarily isolate themselves through fear and terror. When in fact the only ones who should be quarantined are the elderly and those people whose health is compromised, and not everybody else. The people who either caught the virus but showed no symptoms, with their bodies now immune to it, nor the ones who would have to take a week or two off work and stay at home, sick with a virus on steroids, and then afterwards, and now also immune to this particular virus, could go back to work. There are millions upon millions of perfectly healthy people locked in their homes. Many have lost their jobs, and which they may never get back again, companies are going bankrupt, with many of them, maybe never reopening, while the media induced panic created a stock exchange crash that emptied wallets and dried up assets. The virus isn’t destroying us, our economies, ways of life or mental health, the lock-down is.
Dr Didier Raoult, the top virologist on the planet recently confirmed that chloroquine, as already mentioned, a nearly inoffensive drug that has been used for 60 years to treat malaria, was used by the Chinese with spectacular results to cure patients. Raoult then improved his elixir by adding a pneumonic antibacterial called azythromicin, and saved everyone of his first 1,000 cases, but one. The US immediately imposed the same treatment through a fight against its own Federal Drug Administration, which is bought and paid for by the deep state of the central bankers. All the Western governments, their medical agencies, the World Health Organization, and mainstream media then tried to destroy Dr. Raoult’s reputation, by inventing, that the drugs had “dangerous side effects”. At the same time, in Germany, internationally praised Dr Wolfgand Wodarg noted that the engineered panic was totally useless, since this virus isn’t any different than the others that affect us every years. With the pathological lies of the official communication channels of every New World Order country being exposed with each passing day, they are ramping up the fear factor and willing to destroy the social fabric of many societies. Remember, people are nothing to them.
Suddenly, with the mainstream media being forced to talk about such remedies, many big Pharma CEO’s were fired because they had just lost the vaccine contract, at first countries like Canada refused to even consider the use of such cheap and inoffensive medication, while in Jan. 2020, a couple of weeks before the burst of the fake pandemic, the French proclaimed that chloroquine was harmful and had also restrained its use.
In 1991, after the fall of the Soviet Union, the international central bankers controlled about 95% of the planet. They felt invincible and that nothing could slow or even stop their ultimate mission to complete their Orwellian dream, of destroying the few countries left that did not abide by their rules or rely on their central banking empire, enlarge Israel, and get the total control over the world oil market. They’ve been working on this ever since the Balfour declaration in 1917, which eventually would create the State of Israel, their military bastion to control the Middle East.
Then a Russian by the name of Vladimir Putin, who had graduated in 1975 with a law degree and then worked as a KGB foreign intelligence officer for 16 years, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel before resigning in 1991 to begin a political career, appeared on the scene. From 1999 until 2008 he served as the president of Russia. Then prime minister, and since 2012, once again the president. After a few years spent at draining the Russian swamp from the oligarchs and mafia gangs that his stumbling predecessor left behind, he took to the task at hand. Portrayed by western mainstream media as the badman, an ex-spy who is driven by nostalgia rather than any ideology, while in reality he embodied the reincarnation of the long lost Russian ideology of total political and economical independence. Because his opponents in the West had been looting the planet for 250 years through colonization insured by a military dominance, Putin knew that for Russia to have any sort of independence he had to start by building an invincible military machine. And he did. Then to make sure that a nuclear war wouldn’t be an option, he came up with stuff which nightmares are made of, such as the Sarmat, the Poseidon and the Avangard weapons systems, all unstoppable and able to destroy any country in a matter of a few hours. Then in Sept. 2015 in Syria (who was not a member of any central bank, just like Libya wasn’t), he proved to every country that independence from the NWO banking system could now be a matter of choice.
Then seemingly right out of left field came the coronavirus and the ensuing media creation of a fake pandemic. The main focus of the NWO was to avoid a catastrophic hyperinflation of the humongous mass of US dollars that no one wants anymore, and to have the time to implement their virtual world crypto-currency. With everyone instead of “essential employees” under house arrest and paid a guaranteed monthly income. It seemed at first that the plan could work. But with the decisions made by Russia at the recent, and already mentioned, OPEC+ meeting in March, the Russians now control the all-mighty oil market, the unavoidable energy resource that lubricates economies and armies. The quaking bankers’ NATO can only watch, without any means to get it back. Or as Sylvain LaForest, via OrientalReview.org says, “The Empire of Banks has been terminally ill for five years, but it’s now on morphine, barely realizing what’s going on.”
Then on Mar. 28th Russia announced its own anti-corona drug cocktail based on Dr Raoult’s formula. Big pharma is now at its wits end. Do most Western countries now implement the good doctor’s treatment, or face the slap of a Russian pill coming to save its citizens. With Russia and China now deeply immersed in sending doctors and medicine to Italy, especially the hard hit Lombardy region, the NWO is now worried that they might find the truth, where the high death rate there is not necessarily because of Covid, but probably from a deadly cocktail hybrid from two earlier vaccines for meningitis and influenza, that they were injected in separate vaccination campaigns, very recently.
The next day, Mar.29th the NWO and their minions in the media were shocked to their core when the US government took control over the private central bank, the Federal Reserve, which is now handled by two representatives of the US Treasury of State. And for all intents and purposes has taken private banks out of US public affairs, ending a century of exploitation of the American citizens. The infamous Blackrock investment group has been chosen to start buying important corporations for the Fed, meaning that many chunks of the economy are now being nationalized, while avoiding the crash of the market by implicating important private investors in the deal. The Blackrock group is widely known as the biggest money manager on the planet. They own 5% of Apple, 5% of Exxon Mobil, 6% of Google, second largest shareholder of AT&T (Turner, HBO, CNN, Warner Brothers), but just a few examples.
A realization that must not be ignored, especially at this crucial point in time, that unbeknownst to many and which flies in the face of mainstream media, perhaps Russia and the Trump administration are actually united in their goals. Who knows? Regardless, the NWO are blatantly desperate because their pandemic option like all the others is not working. What is truly scary is that to prevent them from using all that’s left, the nuclear option to get it done, they are facing Putin and Trump, who are both not as stupid as the media portrays, though their particular personalities may offend some, nor are they the boogeymen.
Many believe that if the BIS (Bank for International Settlements), the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the European Central bank, the EU, and NATO, disappeared, our world would still not be anywhere near perfect, but it might get much better sooner rather than later or never.
There are many who doubt the NWO induced Western strategy of locking down the planet. The Mar. 26th report, Covid-19 – Navigating the Uncharted, co-authored by Dr. Anthony Fauci – the White House face of the fight, H. Clifford Lane, and CDC director Dr. Robert R. Redfield, basically the heart of the US healthcare establishment, explicitly states, “the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.”
John Lee, recently retired professor of pathology and former NHS consultant pathologist, has recently argued that, “the world’s 18,944 coronavirus deaths represent 0.14 per cent of the total. These figures might shoot up but they are, right now, lower than other infectious diseases that we live with (such as flu).” He recommends, “a degree of social distancing should be maintained for a while, especially for the elderly and the immune-suppressed. But when drastic measures are introduced, they should be based on clear evidence. In the case of Covid-19, the evidence is not clear.” Even New York governor Andrew Cuomo admitted on the record about the error of quarantining elderly people with illnesses alongside the fit young population.
The strangest thing about Covid is how was it that most all Western countries were caught completely unprepared for the spread of it, even after being provided a head start of two months by China, and having the time to study different successful strategies applied across Asia. One reason is because in Jan. 2020 the mainstream media had the world enraged over the attempted impeachment of a man who some people simply don’t like. Another reason is that the NWO know he is a threat and have been at war with who he represents for going on four years now. And finally previous administrations have raided the cupboards dry. Remember the hurricanes and FEMA’s feeble responses? Haiti anyone?
Is this crises a controlled demolition of the global economy? Is martial law, severe social media policing, and the return of strict border controls, not the markings of a massive social re-engineering project, complete with inbuilt full monitoring, population control and social distancing promoted as the new normal?
The US are weathering a perfect storm, a totally shattered economy; a financial crash, barely masked by the trillions in helicopter money from the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank, tens of millions of unemployed, millions of small businesses that will simply disappear, and a widespread, global mental health crisis. Not to mention the masses of elderly, especially in the US, that will be issued an unspoken we will not save you notice on the triage list.
At the ID2020 Alliance summit in Sept. 2019, in New York, (a month before the previously mentioned Event 201, also held in New York City) it was decided by the European Commission, that the “Rising to the Good ID Challenge” program would be launched in 2020. The European Commission, is deeply involved in a crucial but virtually unknown project called CREMA (Cloud Based Rapid Elastic Manufacturing), which aims to facilitate the widest possible implementation of AI (artificial intelligence) in conjunction to the advent of a cashless one-world system. Which itself implies a central unelected body which is capable of dispensing and controlling Universal Basic Income to those in lock-down. Where anyone is liable to be erased from the system if an algorithm equals this individual with dissent. ID2020 is self-described as a benign alliance of “public-private partners”. Essentially, it is an electronic ID platform based on generalized vaccination. And its starts at birth; newborns will be provided with a “portable and persistent bio-metrically-linked digital identity.” While one of the partners, Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, pledges to “protect people’s health” and provide “immunization for all”. Top partners and sponsors, apart from the WHO, include, predictably, Big Pharma. It is basically absolute social control that is being promoted as an innocent vaccine. Such a digital identity, within the vaccine, will be first tested with the people of Bangladesh, this year, if they haven’t postponed it or anything. Journalist Pepe Escobar poses a serious question: was ID2020 timed to coincide with what a crucial sponsor, the WHO, qualified as a pandemic? Or was a pandemic absolutely crucial to justify the launch of ID2020? Escobar argues that “the powers that be, taking their cue from the tried and tested, decades-old CIA playbook, of course are breathlessly calling it a “conspiracy theory”. Yet what vast swathes of global public opinion observe is a – dangerous – virus being used as cover for the advent of a new, digital financial system, complete with a forced vaccine cum nanochip creating a full, individual, digital identity.”
Consider that about 99% of people who contract the disease live through it, whether feeling any symptoms or not, and are now naturally immunized to the disease, so why would they need a vaccine for something they are now immune to? So we must be wary when some big pharma outfit miraculously brings out a vaccine to eliminate the threat of coronavirus, and we are forced to receive it under threat of arrest. And then find out later that key government officials had invested heavily in the company that developed the cure. Is someone going to be targeted as a bio terrorist germ spreader if they want to contract the seasonal cold/flu and let their bodies beat it on its own? Of course, though many vaccines have to be given today because our immune systems are degrading, they do have all kinds of toxins in them, including nanochips in the ID2020 vaccine, and since some will get rushed to market in the current hysteria, there’s a huge likelihood of making many people sick and more babies being born autistic, making the vaccine much more harmful than beneficial. Is anyone going to be held responsible for that if it were to happen? When they have never been held accountable before.
Apr. 5th. Amazing. The term Covid-19, was debuted only 54 days ago (Feb11th). And the kids who hopefully will be allowed to graduate from Grade 12 at some time this year, weren’t even born yet when 9/11 happened.
I’ve been thinking lately, what if WHO, which represents the medical-industrial complex, had not screamed epidemic and shot flares into the sky, which brought forth global scale hysteria and fear. And send many governments around the world, nearly all at the same time, making decisions which will do more harm to our worlds than any virus could do. Especially when in reality, adding Covid deaths to date, to overall flu deaths to date, would probably go totally unnoticed except for maybe a few specialists in the bigger, denser cities. Other than any specialists, who would have even noticed the coronavirus? We would have been oblivious, because every flu season, the one we are currently in, last year, and the year before that, we’d pass on in conversation or hear from others, “I hear there’s quite a flu going around that makes you hope to die ” or “I hear there’s a nasty and evil cold going around”, or “I know, I had it, it was brutal, missed a few days of work because of it,”etc, etc.
Here in Canada, every year about 84,000 people succumb to cancer, 53,000 die from heart disease, 14,000 die in car accidents, 8,000 from pneumonia, more than 4,000 suicides, and 1,100 die by flu. In a typical Canadian month of March about 3,600 people die from all causes. Deaths (to Apr.5th) due to Covid, 280 people.
In BC, from January to March, there were about 10,350 deaths from all causes. So far this year, 38 have died from complications due to Covid. And we are giving away many of our freedoms, jobs, businesses, relationships and mental state, because? Would we do the same to stave off cancer, having a stroke or a heart attack, or walking across the street and getting hit by a bus? Do we usually go through life living in fear of such things?
Consider that on an average day in the US 8,000 people die, about 240,000 per month, 2.9 million per year. When that perspective is placed in context, next to the approaching, 10,000 Covid deaths in the US, one could question the necessity of shutting down the entire country.
Our response could drive the suicide rate through the roof. Drug and alcohol abuse would no doubt rise, as would poverty and lack of food access, along with a plethora of social, medical, and public health issues. Even though, as much as 99% of active Covid cases are mild, and do not require specific medical treatment to recover.
One of the hottest spots in California, besides L.A., has been the San Francisco Bay area, specifically, at the heart of Silicon Valley, Santa Clara county. They report that currently, 30% of ICU patients have Covid, 38% have other problems, and that 32% of beds are still available. The rates in the Bay area are beginning to show signs that the rates are dropping. Washington State has also finally begun to stabilize, after being one of the first hit with the virus, and Minnesota has the lowest sustained level of cases.
Isolated already, Iceland (pop.364,260) to-date has a 0.9% infection rate, with 3,500 infected, and one death (0.03% fatality rate). Their average seasonal flu fatality rate is 0.10%.
Putting the madman who runs the Philippines, who has declared that those caught playing hooky from their place of confinement, will be shot on sight, aside. Here in Victoria, break-ins have risen 119% since Jan.1st. With many businesses closed because owners, operators and employees who, whether healthy, or infected or not, are at home self-isolating. The majority of the break-ins were to small and medium size businesses, with a third to construction sites, outbuildings, and sheds. Sounds like the black market, drug dealers, and the pawn shops are going to do great. Many of the owners are now considering having to hire security guards, which already are, and have been, everywhere for a few years now. Many of the businesses are pulling out the plywood and boarding up storefronts and access points. No doubt many of them, and also for years now, have their camera systems still in operation. For the stores still open, there has been a similar spike in shop-lifting. And in some areas I feel its nearly at the point where if you cough for any reason, on any street today, and anyone who sees or hears it immediately labels you infested, and they will soon notify the authorities, there is an app now to do this, who will find you and ask to see your papers, to whether you have been tested or not, and if you are allowed out from your shelter-in-place order.
Conveniently, in the “Wag the Dog”, oops I mean War on Covid, it seems our Federal government have also cleared off their desks. I guess those planned gun-control measures, the changes to the assisted dying legislation, and to advance reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, have been put on the back burner. And though I’m sure, very few of the 105 senators and 338 members of the House of Commons, are actually battling on any front line against Covid, and together number more than the people who have to-date, died due to Covid, the Federal budget which is usually released in the late Fall, has also been delayed indefinitely. While in the US, their Congress, also remains on a mysterious recess, unwilling even to give itself the authority to conduct hearings and votes remotely, and proving day-by-day that it is not an essential service.
Take it as you will, a dozen academics, epidemiologists, physicians, lawyers and economists published a report Mar 27th for the Munich-based Ifo economics institute. Worst case scenario, if government deems Covid a seasonal flu, there is unlikely to be any return to normality before a reliable vaccine against Covid-19 becomes widely available, which appears to be at least a year away. And then everyone on the planet will be vaccinated, whether they are immune or not. If they have any say in the matter, the profit, the maker of the “vaccine” makes each dose, will be multiplied by about 7.5 billion doses. Big money. But then to find the truth of many things, simply follow the money. Because that’s what the elite are all about. Pretend your doing good and make literally, a killing on it.
Other scenarios the report came up with include; End of lock-down for most countries, Apr. 15 to 30th. Based on restrictions being lifted in Hubei, China, May 20th, and based on containment of SARS, June 15th. But you know plans. Once they begin often times can immediately be thrown away. Only time will tell. Stay calm and rational and try to push any stress away for the moment, because it doesn’t know the future either.
Apr. 7th. During Covid, the economists have really weighed in. Which makes sense, because the actions we are taking is based on logic they use every day to do their jobs. With many of them horrified in how we are dealing with the situation at hand. Economists are constantly thinking in various possible choices and finding the optimal one. And understanding that like other natural laws, there are trade-offs. There is the benefit of every action, but trade-offs should also be weighed against the missed benefit of the action not taken. For example the “train scenario”, where a train is barrelling along and about to run over five people, and the only way to save them is to divert the train to a sidetrack, but killing one person in the progress. For example, if testing for Covid was universal the fatality rate would be about 0.2%. Thus we have the dilemma of allowing our societies’ economies to crash, at the minimum 30%, to save the lives of 0.2% of the population, and destroy the lives, jobs, businesses of the other 99.8%.
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, speaking very rationally, to his fellow Americans, and much of the Western world. Not so much about the virus, but the big question we are all wondering about, what happens afterwards? Though I have followed him for quite a few years, and don’t always agree with his arguments, the man is wise, always rational, and his research impeccable. Dr. Roberts, professor of economics and professor of business administration, was associate editor and columnist for The Wall Street Journal and columnist for Business Week and the Scripps Howard News Service. President Reagan appointed him Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and he was confirmed in office by the US Senate. From 1975 to 1978, he served on the congressional staff where he drafted the Kemp-Roth bill and played a leading role in developing bipartisan support for a supply-side economic policy. After leaving the Treasury, he served as a consultant to the US Department of Defense, Department of Commerce, and numerous other appointments. He is one of the most respected columnists in the alternative media.
Apr. 8th. To-date there have been 88,000 deaths globally due to Covid, with 209 countries affected. Latest reports are showing that globally, about 2.5% of the deaths are 39 years of age and younger, with 82% of all deaths 60+.
In Canada, 435 deaths have been confirmed (0.000011 of the population, or about .80 per 100,000). Over the same time frame, more than twice as many Canadians (900) have killed themselves. In BC, there have been 48 Covid deaths or .96 per 100,000 people, with currently, 135 people in hospital, including 11 on the Island, and 61 people in intensive care or critical care units.
As for the 1.2 billion people of Africa, to-date, there have been 10,000 confirmed cases. Ethiopia, (pop. 110 million), the home country of the current president of WHO, is just now declaring a state of emergency over the virus, with only 52 cases and two deaths reported. The country’s PM warns of ‘grave legal measures’ against anyone who undermines the fight against the pandemic.
Meanwhile France bans jogging, excising outdoors, and walking, from 10 am to 7 pm daily.
In the US, The Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington updated its models on Apr.4th, and now predicts peak ICU usage of about 29,000 beds by April 15th (the US has about 115,000 ICU beds, extrapolating from Forbes’s per capita data). While the 1000-bed US Navy hospital ship the USNS Comfort, docked at Manhattan’s Pier 90 is so far only treating about 20 patients.
Any death is sad, and yes there has been nearly 15,000 Covid deaths in the US to-date, many of them people in their seventies and eighties who were, with no disrespect, already dying, as I am, but over the same time frame, just as many Americans have taken their own lives. And nearly twice as many people have overdosed and died on drugs, most often laced with fentanyl. Why haven’t the US or Canada, shut down to take care of those problems?
New York state now has more cases, not deaths, than any single country, other than the US as a whole. NY state now has 4,755 Covid deaths or .03 per 100,000 people. And though today (Apr8th) they had their highest single-day death toll of 779, the number of cases are flattening, with ICU admissions down significantly. Of their deaths so far, 34% were white, 27% black, 28% Hispanic, 7% Asians, and 4% a mix of other nationalities. State governor Andrew Cuomo announced today that even though they are now peaking in deaths, the hospitals are well equipped with all they’ll need. “We’re good. We have enough ventilators to ensure no unnecessary deaths.” Interesting that a week ago everyone was screaming for ventilators.
In fact, over the past week I’ve been coming across more and more articles and reports from hospitals, where it’s looking like most of the patients who are actually put on a ventilator are the one’s dying. Even in the best conditions, once a patient is placed on a ventilator, their chances of survival shrink dramatically. Mortality rates can soar to 80%, or higher, for the most high-risk patients who are placed on one. The thing that makes Covid infections so deadly for some patients is that they can sometimes trigger secondary bacterial infections in the lungs that lead to the destruction of lung tissue that the body simply cannot repair, or replace.
Confirmed by NYC ICU emergency physician Cameron Kyle-Sidell, who has released several videos detailing how coronavirus is not a kind of viral pneumonia, but rather from an inability to absorb or carry oxygen in the blood. “We’re treating the wrong disease,” he says. And the ventilators are doing more harm than any good. He explains, “COVID-19 lung disease, as far as I can see, is not a pneumonia and should not be treated as one. Rather, it appears as if some kind of viral-induced disease most resembling high altitude sickness. Is it as if tens of thousands of my fellow New Yorkers are on a plane at 30,000 feet at the cabin pressure is slowly being let out. These patients are slowly being starved of oxygen.”
So in typical disaster capitalism fashion, the US, Canada and other countries, are tasking companies who’s profits have been taking a beating, with many on the verge of shutting down because we aren’t buying their stuff anymore, to switch some of their facilities over and instead start making ventilators. Even though, many countries have revised down the need for ventilators, beds, and other equipment, US companies, including Ford, G.E., and General Motors, are collectively being given $490 million from the Department of Health and Human Services to build 30,000 respirators, which will be sold to the government for $17,000 per unit. The first of these machines won’t be ready until months after they’re needed. If indeed they are needed at all. In a year, will there be warehouses filled with respirators?
Of course it will still have to be seen, but the drivers of the narrative are warning of an even deadlier second wave somewhere down the road, and perhaps they know something we don’t. Curiously, those who are driving the war on virus narrative, Bill Gates, John Hopkins University, the CDC, and WHO were all participants in the previously mentioned, October, 2019 pandemic exercise, Event 201. Which was a near-exact simulation which took place a mere few weeks before the current Covid outbreak went viral globally. And is not an exercise, practising for the real thing? Food for thought indeed.
Gates himself has been popping up like a whack-a-mole everywhere, giving unsolicited national advise, going Orwellian and preaching about “disease surveillance” , “digital certificate”, “best-case scenarios” for American “total isolation” measures, such as “social distancing” and “mandated shutdowns”. He wants the US government to go full on lock-down, until one of his companies can develop a vaccine in 18 months or so, test every single citizen, and if possible a blood sample from each one, and when ready, vaccinate the entire population with toxins and nanochips. Conveniently, one of his major partners in such endeavours is MasterCard. He says from the bubble he lives in, while stroking a white cat. Meanwhile the lap dogs of mainstream media, obediently and breathlessly, extol their bias rhetoric upon the masses.
It’s interesting that Bill Gates father, William Henry Gates II (born November 30, 1925) and still kicking at 95 yrs, though in 2018, it was revealed that he suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, was a lawyer, businessman, philanthropist, sat on the board of Planned Parenthood for years, follower of the eugenics movement, and an avid Malthusian. And to this day remains steadfast to the unfounded Malthusian fear of overpopulation. He once said “Well if you improve health, aren’t you just dooming people to deal with such a lack of resources where they won’t be educated or they won’t have enough food? You know, sort of a Malthusian view of what would take place.” Many see Planned Parenthood as a covert means to justify abortion among minorities to reduce the population, which is why the Gates’ have been so concerned with, and support the Climate Change movement. Of course, abortion is a tool for eugenics. Many know of the racist legacy of Margaret Sanger (1879-1966), the founder of Planned Parenthood, who once gave a talk to the KKK and helped promote the “Negro Project.” In her own words in 1923, “[Birth control] means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks – those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.” To this day, 79% of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of many African American or Hispanic/Latino neighbourhoods.
Bill Gates in an interview said: “When I was growing up, my parents were almost involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating. At the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing. And almost treating us like adults, talking about that.”
One of the main sponsors of Event 201 was the World Economic Forum, and just recently they, along with Microsoft, MasterCard, and others, announced their new project “Known Traveler Digital Identity” (KTDI). It would use a blockchain-based distributed ledger to bind together, through an app on a traveler’s (citizen’s/pedestrian’s/driver’s) mobile device, all of the following data: Biometrics (initially facial images, possibly also fingerprints, etc.). Government-issued ID credentials (passport number, etc.). Travel history including logs of border crossings, hotel stays, and possibly also car rentals and/or other events. Purchase logs and possibly bank account information and/or other financial and transaction records. And pre-crime predictive “risk assessment” and profiling scores generated at each “intervention” point before and during each trip or transaction. But then the virus has given many governments an excuse to test out all sorts of new surveillance tactics. Most all those CCTV cameras set up everywhere we go in the big city, are setup with facial recognition programs, now thermal-imaging will be added to keep track of the “infected’.
Across the globe, facial recognition companies are hard at work trying to convince politicians, law enforcement and the public that thermal imaging cameras will help stop the spread of Covid. And further combining fever detection, facial recognition and gun detection into an all-in-one screening system. The sales pitch for one of the security companies, Athena, brags that their “Fever Detection COVID19 Screening System is now a part of our platform along with our gun detection system which connects directly to your current security camera system to deliver fast, accurate threat detection – including guns, knives, and aggressive action. Our system can also alert you to falls, accidents, and unwelcome visitors.” Athena’s software also has the ability to send out real-time alerts to authorities. So they can identify and quarantine anyone they choose.
This is all being carried out in real time while we are all either still in shock or in denial. Future uncertain but deep down in our gut we already know something is amiss. Most of the ongoing infection has been going on in our minds, in an epidemic of cognitive dissonance, where, sadly, “Psychological suppression is complete in all but a few.” We need to give our heads a shake, throw off the accumulated data in our heads which somehow got connected to our emotions over the past decades, and instead allow critical thinking, being calm, rational, and prepared, but also being pro-active, making the right decisions and acting on them, to save us. And not wait for some shining knight to come riding down the road and in the nick of time, save you.
Apr. 10th – Today, in the spirit of collaboration, Google and Apple announced a joint effort to enable the use of Bluetooth technology to help governments and health agencies reduce the spread of the virus, with user privacy and security central to the design. Even though people will have to opt in to the system, the two tech giants will add the technology directly into their operating systems so this contact-tracing software works without having to download an app. It has the potential to monitor nearly a third of the world’s population, since Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android phones have about 3 billion users between them. And while the technology will allow governments and health agencies to track contacts, it won’t notify users who they came into contact with, or where that happened. They no doubt feel, that they are doing this for our own good.
Projection rejections. In March, US predictions began with one million to two million US deaths. Last week’s projection, from Dr. Anthony Fauci, of the White House Covid Task Force, who initially claimed that Covid was comparable to a bad flu, was 100,000 to 240,000 deaths, and that the US will not come out of lock-down until there are no “new cases” of coronavirus. On Apr 7th, Dr. Deborah Birx, also on the Task Force, said the model she is working with projects 81,000 deaths. By the next day, that had dropped 25% to an estimated 60,000 US Deaths. Current deaths – 18,600. Dr. Fauci also announced that Americans “probably should never shake hands again.”
Projection models for New York State – Total Covid hospital beds that would be needed: Columbia University (Mar.29) (NYC only), 136,000. McKinsey model- severe scenario – 110,000 beds needed statewide. Moderate scenario – 55,000 beds. Bill Gates funded, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) (Apr.1) 73,000 statewide. Today Apr 10th, 18,279 beds are being used, with virus deaths peaking, but cases and hospitalizations beginning to plateau.
Projections for Canada began at 300,000 deaths, then very recently, Canada’s Public Health Agency projected 44,000 deaths, today the PM is projecting 11,000 to 22,000 deaths, and that the epidemic will peak in the late spring then subside over the summer. Deaths to-date in Canada 569 people. He also passed on that the nation wide lock-down will not end until a vaccine is created, though hinted that rules could be loosened this summer if Canadians act now to contain the spread, “as the country continues to grapple with major problems with the most vulnerable at long-term care homes.” (where most of the deaths in Canada are occurring). So continue to quarantine them and test us, so many can go back to work, keeping up with the safe practises of keeping distance, washing ones hands, and not spitting, coughing, clearing our throat or sneezing around other people. Wear a mask if one feels they need to. One of the saddest things of all, is that those in care homes, many in their final days, will undoubtedly now die alone because their friends and family won’t be allowed at their death beds. Nor will a funeral, wake or celebration be allowed to take place.
Meanwhile in March, one million Canadians became unemployed (132,400 in BC), mostly low-wage service jobs. In comparison during the 2008/09 recession 125,000 jobs were lost. Canada’s unemployment rate is now 7.8%.
And though it is appearing that some deaths being attributed to Covid were caused by underlying conditions patients had when they came to the hospital, such as cancer, heart disease, hypertension, pneumonia, diabetes, asthma. To-date 100,000 deaths are attributed to Covid globally. This number is inching closer to the 185,000 people who die every year, around the world, of alcohol abuse, and the 160,000 individuals who die of drug abuse, though not anywhere near the 954,000 who die of HIV/Aid’s every year. Or, as mentioned a few times already, the seasonal flu, of which there are 3-5 million cases of severe cases a year globally, and 250,000 to 500,000 deaths, depending on the strain. In the US alone, the current seasonal flu has caused an estimated 38 million illnesses, 390,000 hospitalizations, and 23,000 deaths this season, according to the CDC. Current Covid deaths in the US 18,600.
The one thing that may come out of this whole Covid thing, which the esteemed author James Howard Kunstler ended his regular Friday Clusterfuck Nation blog, Risings and Fallings, with, was perhaps it’s time we all came back down to earth. And become aware of what’s going on around us, instead of all looking at a tree and arguing what type of bark it has, and ignoring the forest burning around us.
Apr. 12Th – Ironic isn’t it, last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, a stock market index that measures the stock performance of 30 large companies listed on stock exchanges in the US, with a market cap of over $8 trillion, had it’s best week since 1938. Meanwhile, and ongoing, over the past three weeks 16.8 million US workers (more than one-in-10 of all workers) applied for unemployment insurance. Of those jobs, 81% were low wage industry/service jobs, of which 33% from the “leisure and hospitality” sector. No surprise really, since 90% of the stock in the markets is owned by the top 10% of earners.
On one side of the coin, Canadian and US health authorities continue to stress that there are no medications or health products approved to treat or cure Covid. The best way to avoid getting infected, authorities say, is to wash your hands regularly, avoid touching your face, stay at least two metres from other people and remain at home as much as possible. On the other side of the coin, many countries are now using chloroquine. But what is it, some may ask, and being kids again, where does it come from? During World War II, in the South Pacific and Africa, malaria was decimating the troops on both sides. It was said that for every US division fighting, another was sick from malaria, and further, another was recovering from it. The preferred choice at the time was quinine, derived from the bark of the cinchona tree, which unfortunately was behind the enemy’s lines, in South East Asia. So something new had to be created.
The first candidate was a derivative of the synthetic dye industry, methylene blue. Originally made as a fabric dye in 1876, it was later found to be a useful histological stain aiding in differentiating white blood cells as well as the axons of neurons. It turned out to be toxic to the microscopic parasites which cause malaria, and was developed into a drug. But was soon found to be less effective than quinine, and wasn’t very popular amongst the troops, as it turned their urine and the sclera (the whites of our eyes) blue. Next up to bat was quinacrine, derived from a colorless solid compound obtained from coal tar called yellow acridine, a dye that had been synthesized in 1931, and which was widely used as the anthelmintic and antimalarial drug Atabrine. It too had an array of side effects including anemia, damage to the retina and liver, and caused mood changes and hallucinations, with about 1% having a psychotic reaction which could last several weeks. There has to be some sort of irony somewhere with what I’m about to write but, another side -effect was that it turned the skin yellow, so well, that some American spies infiltrating Japanese-controlled China took quinacrine to make their Caucasian skin appear more like that of Asians.
Chloroquine was first discovered in Germany in 1934, but initially was considered to have too many side effects. In the latter part of the war the US re-evaluated the drug, and in 1947 made it available for general use. Today it continues to be prescribed for the suppressive treatment of malaria, though its use is more limited due to the development of resistance. It is also indicated for a form of amebiasis (dysentery). Its medical side effect profile is ample, but improved over quinacrine, and changes in skin coloration are less common.
In my tiny pea brain and from what I gather, it seems the drug is effective against Covid when used with Zinc. And I’m probably not getting it exact, but I think what happens is that when chloroquine bumps into a Covid cell, the zinc penetrates it, and the chloroquine rushes in behind quelling any disturbance.
Along with chloroquine (and zinc) to treat Covid, a new method of treatment developed by Johns Hopkins Hospital has just been given special approval by the FDA to be fast-tracked. Known as convalescent serum therapy, this passive-antibody therapy has been used since the 1890s to combat diseases as wide-ranging as measles, SARS, Ebola, H1N1 flu, and polio-survivors’ plasma (or serum). In this case, the antibody-rich blood plasma from Covid survivors is drawn and bagged. The antibody to Covid can then be separated from red blood cells and transfused into three categories of recipients: the critically ill as a last-stop “compassionate care” measure; patients who are slightly or moderately ill to keep them out of ICUs, and front-line medical workers to prevent them from getting sick.
– According to the CDC website: “Laboratory confirmed seasonal flu activity as reported by clinical laboratories continues to decrease sharply and is now low.” While Covid hospitalizations rise, but showing signs of plateauing. Also on the CDC site, I ran across the “Guidance for Certifying Deaths Due to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID–19)”, which tells doctors how to fill out death certificates. “In cases where a definite diagnosis of COVID–19 cannot be made, but it is suspected or likely (e.g., the circumstances are compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty), it is acceptable to report COVID–19 on a death certificate as “probable” or “presumed.” In these instances, certifiers should use their best clinical judgment in determining if a COVID–19 infection was likely. However, please note that testing for COVID–19 should be conducted whenever possible.” So basically, in sometimes hectic moments one is allowed to guess. And not being callus in any way, if an elderly frail patient who is dying from liver cancer, COPD, and diabetes gets the Covid and dies, what killed them? Or like the mainstream news story going around, and similar to the now discredited story about babies being killed in incubators in Iraq back in 2003. Covid has killed a baby! Actually if truth be told, the baby had been born 22 weeks premature, was having difficulties, and one month after being born died. Maybe it was Covid, maybe it was just one of the many sad individual stories of life.
– With China still reporting only 3,341 Covid deaths in a country of 1.4 billion. Nobody believes them. Being inquisitive, since the US has one-quarter the population of China, and the US Covid death rate is currently 67 per million people, and if we extrapolate that to China’s population, they would have suffered more than 82,000 deaths. But this is skewed because the US’s population couldn’t handle being strictly and literally locked in their homes for three months. If it, Canada, and other Western countries had been, who knows how many deaths we would have had? In fact, this past week the residents of Wuhan were released from 76 days (nearly 11 weeks) of very strict house arrest. We as of yet do not know what the future holds for them. Nor of us, as we pretend we are weathering a storm, when really its a squall, and hidden behind it are all sorts of nefarious and sinister plots for even more central power and control. The virus has become the ultimate distraction. And once again all for our own good.
Why did the US shut down their economy, and along with it, much of the world’s? Because initial projections told them to expect 1 to 2 million US deaths. In Canada we were shut down because we were told there was going to be hundreds of thousands of deaths. Okay, shut down, I get that. But since those numbers were only a guess and aren’t the case, why are we still shut down, and haven’t gotten our liberties back that we obediently gave away. And did us not carrying on as we did before, losing our livelihoods in the process, make that much of a difference. And the biggest question, if such restrictions become endlessly extended and become normal and just a part of our new lives, will we sleep, dream, awaken and go about our daily secluded lives always afraid, and hoping nothing bad happens to us that day. Though hidden from the community behind closed doors and masks, if we are allowed out. We must stop listening to all those who had it wrong and lied about it, and continue to do.
Apr. 14Th: James McCarten of the Canadian Press, in his article, Compared to US, Canada’s COVID-19 response a case study in political civility; “In the time of the novel coronavirus, Canada and the United States seem to be playing to type: the friendly apologizers of the Great White North coming together against a common enemy, America’s combative revolutionaries threatening to tear each other apart.”
– Politically, in the US, the DNC needs the shut-down to continue and the crisis to worsen, because Russia, Ukraine, and impeachment didn’t work so they’ll now blame the destruction of their economy, the virus itself, and any talk of treatments available on their president. Then they can once again be in charge, and finish what they had already created, but were so rudely interrupted by populism.
For each US citizen lost to the pandemic, 1,000 have lost their jobs because of conscious and deliberate decisions of their president and 50 governors. The US in a nutshell? Churches, any gathering of people, and the essential jobs of family’s breadwinners are shut-down, but liquor stores, pot shops, drive-thru fast food joints, gun stores, and abortion clinics are deemed essential services.
Meanwhile, in Canada, PM Trudeau is out of his self-exile, and Parliament is back in session, with the opposition playing the pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey blame game. In the US their Congress are all hiding out back home in their gated mansions, golfing, some realizing they have children, taking a dip in the pool, keeping an eye on their stock portfolios, you know the usual.
-Interestingly, saunas, hot baths and such, cause heat shock proteins within us to go off. The same action the body takes when we contract say a virus, whether flu or coronavirus, and we get a fever. Which is the body’s attempt to kill the virus with heat.
– CNN anchor Chris Cuomo made a startling confession on Monday, on his SiriusXM show, apparently having an epiphany after a bout with the coronavirus. “I’m basically being perceived as successful in a system that I don’t value. I’m seen as being good at being on TV and advocating for different positions… but I don’t know if I value those things, certainly not as much as I value being able to live my life on my own terms.” he added that his employer (CNN) is “trafficking in things that I think are ridiculous.”
– As to what the herd is up to, according to a poll by Gallup today, in what might disappoint those hoping for an immediate recovery after restrictions are lifted, four in five Americans still want to wait before resuming normal daily routines. The poll found that 71% of respondents would wait and see what happens with the spread of the virus before returning to normal activities, whenever that is, nearly 20% said they would resume normal activities immediately, while 10% say they would wait indefinitely. The poll also found that the desire to wait for government approval is growing among men, workers and city residents. I hate to say it but the poll would probably show similar results here in Canada.
– Global deaths due to Covid and underlying conditions, 126,106 people or 1.62 per 100,000. In Canada, 903 deaths or 2.4 per 100,000, and in the US 25,658 deaths or 7.8 per 100,000. Of the 1.9 million cases of Covid, 96% have been mild or no symptoms, and 4% serious/critical, and needed hospitalization. Most of the deaths have occurred in the US, Italy, Spain, France, and the UK. After them, deaths drop dramatically amongst the remaining countries.
Apr. 16th: The latest PR campaign coming soon to a theatre near you. According to The Washington Times, on Apr. 8Th, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) announced they were leading Pentagon efforts to turn the fight against Covid into a US military campaign, and perhaps, getting us used to having military personal hovering about. The order was given to the Pentagon, as well as the Canadian Army, to make photos of US and Canadian troops “engaged domestically in assisting containment efforts” widely available. The scary part of the order is that the release of the photos will “reassure the American (and Canadian) public they don’t have to worry about homeland defense” during the Covid era. “Showing the US and Canada are fully capable of providing homeland defense for their countries, despite COVID-19, serves to help deter any one who would seek to take advantage of the situation.” So why aren’t they rounding up government officials, health “experts”, CEO’s, and members of big-Pharma?
This week, in the UK, the BBC, newspapers and other mainstream media outlets have been banned from publishing or printing any link between Covid and 5G technology. A parliamentary committee has called on the British government to do more to ‘stamp out’ coronavirus conspiracy theories, and said it was planning to hold a hearing later this year at which representatives from US technology giants will be asked about how they have handled the spread of disinformation on their platforms. And Google’s YouTube said that it would ban all videos linking 5G technology to Covid, saying that “any content that disputes the existence or transmission of Covid-19 would now be in violation of YouTube policies.” Meaning any independent analysis of the “epidemic” must be squelched, because the masters of control want to maintain an information monopoly.
Here is an interview with author and theorist David Icke, that YouTube banned almost immediately, because he talks about 5G and Covid. If you are not aware of him, what he has to say may shock you and maybe even anger you, but as I’ve been following this fellow for ten years, and though I don’t always agree what he comes up with, more often than not he makes sense and knows his stuff. At the least, its food for thought.
Here in Victoria, last Sunday (Easter), was a gloriously nice day. So a few of the semi-curmudgeons I sometimes get together with and share a pint, decided to meet at Beacon Hill Park and shoot the shit as it were. We met at an big old tree that had been felled a few years ago, partly de-limbed and simply left to one day return to the earth. The nearby baseball diamond and field were dotted with either families or groups of three to four people sitting a safe distance from each other. All enjoying the sun. A couple played Frisbee. So we stood and sat around solving all the world’s problems. A and R had pack sacks, toting a few cans of beer, and J had a bottle of white wine in a satchel, refilling his coffee cup when needed. An hour in, a family slowly walks by, in their late thirties, the mom carried a baby in a sling in front of her, her man was staring at his phone, while three little kids explored everything in sight, twittering around like water bugs. One of them, a spindly little boy, climbs up on the felled tree and looks over at us, then very well spoken, he exclaimed “don’t worry I do not have the coronavirus. I am five years old. But a very strong five year old.” Then waved and went scampering along the tree and away from us. It was both weird and cool in some way. Like he was reading a script. I thought afterwards, did that little bundle of life attend the big Extinction Rally held only a few months ago, where schools were let out for it, and the predominately Greta fans, and their families, with baby carriages a dominate theme, flooded the inner harbour downtown. And where all the children in attendance were told they only had ten years to live before nature killed them. I worry about the children.
The vast majority of all cases of the supposedly Covid disease are in the US, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, the UK, China, and Iran. All these countries except Iran, who is ready to launch, are also the top users of 5G, with their countries heavily blanketed. The same for deaths, where the US, Italy, Spain, France, and the UK have had by far, the most deaths, and once again are the largest users of 5G. Just saying. Interestingly, Canada currently has more deaths than all of Africa.
As discussed a few days ago, of the doctor from New York who revealed that those patients who were deemed positive for Covid, when put on a respirator, they died of progressive hypoxia (starving your body of oxygen), which eventually leads to organ failures that kill them, not any form of ARDS or pneumonia. “All the damage to the lungs you see in CT scans are from the release of oxidative iron from the hemes, this overwhelms the natural defenses against pulmonary oxidative stress and causes that nice, always-bilateral ground glass opacity in the lungs.” Groups of hemes give myoglobin and hemoglobin the ability to bind oxygen because each heme group contains an iron atom that is able to bind to one oxygen (O2). It also contributes to the red color found in muscles and blood. Patients returning for re-hospitalization days or weeks after recovery suffering from apparent delayed post-hypoxic leukoencephalopathy strengthen the notion COVID-19 patients are suffering from hypoxia despite no signs of respiratory ‘tire out’ or fatigue. More research and information will hopefully be forthcoming.

More research and information will hopefully be forthcoming.
Then there are exosomes, a type of extracellular vesicle that contain constituents (protein, DNA, and RNA) of the cells that secrete them. These nano-sized vesicles contain biological signaling molecules that mediate cell–cell signaling. The information they pass on to other cells can affect cell function and behaviour. Intercellular communication through exosomes seems to be involved in the pathogenesis (the manner of development of a disease) of various disorders, including cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and inflammatory diseases. They may also communicate with hemes, in terms of giving a false signal, for the body to start starving for oxygen. Though more research is still needed, there is the potential of clinical applications of exosome profiling for diagnostics and exosome-mediated delivery of therapeutics to target disease cells. Exosomes have been reported in all biological fluids, and the composition of the complex cargo of exosomes is readily accessible via sampling of biological fluids (liquid biopsies).
Exosomes are associated with immune responses, viruses which cause disease, pregnancy, cardiovascular diseases, central nervous system-related diseases, and cancer progression. Proteins, metabolites, and nucleic acids delivered by exosomes into recipient cells effectively alter their biological response. But, such exosome-mediated responses can be disease promoting or restraining. Because, interestingly, what sets exosomes off is toxicity, diseases, infections, stress, fear, and electromagnetic fields. For instance, a human being with a robust and healthy immune system, created from exercise, mediation, and a good diet, cannot be destroyed by a virus. With a weak and compromised immune system the opposite usually happens, we die because, while the exosomes are signalling to cells that aren’t there anymore because of say a virus, their warnings go unanswered, the system breaks down and becomes frantic, and begins to attack you. In some cases, a person’s immune system goes into overdrive, attracting cells to the lungs in order to attack the virus, resulting in inflammation. This process can run out of control, more immune cells pour in, and the inflammation gets worse. This is known as a cytokine storm, and in some cases can kill the patient. As for toxicity, the exosomes often signal the system to go into shock, in an attempt to save itself. Stress and fear, which comes from our brain, could set them off telling every other cell we are sick, and we become sick. Or even change our behaviour and way we think. As for electromagnetic, we are electromagnetic creatures, it’s how our operating systems work, so of course we would be affected by a change in the field. And 5G is able to do that. Control both, perception and behaviour.
Apr.18th: Instead of the false images of people in Wuhan eating bat soup, and the mainstream belief that Covid was a natural mutation that occurred when the virus jumped from bats to humans, Professor Luc Montagnier, winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2008 for “discovering” HIV as the cause of the AIDS epidemic, together with Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, have discovered that the SARS-CoV-2 is a virus that was manipulated by humans. And either accidentally (or purposely) released from a laboratory in Wuhan, in the last quarter of 2019. Chinese researchers are said to have used coronaviruses in their work to develop an AIDS vaccine. Luc Montagnier and Barré-Sinoussi found HIV DNA fragments in the SARS-CoV-2 genome. As for anyone questioning that perhaps the virus may have come from a patient who is infected with HIV. Luc Montagnier, says no, “in order to insert an HIV sequence into this genome, molecular tools are needed, and that can only be done in a laboratory.” The one or two HIV molecules found within SARS-CoV-2 is what is making this strain so virulent. Otherwise it would have been a nasty flu that would wreck havoc on mostly the immune-compromised elderly. And would have been simply a bad flu season.
According to Luc Montagnier, the altered elements of this virus (HIV molecules) are eliminated as it spreads: “Nature does not accept any molecular tinkering, it will eliminate these unnatural changes and even if nothing is done, things will get better, but unfortunately after many deaths.” He added that with the help of interfering waves, we could eliminate these sequences, and as a result stop the pandemic.
Meanwhile here in Canada, unsurprisingly, a CBC News “The National” report gives kids advice on how to shut down “conspiracy theories” voiced by their parents about coronavirus being created by China in a lab. The presenter plaints how somebody’s Dad (always got to be the Dad) may drop a message into chat blaming China for “manufacturing the coronavirus” with a “link to a site you’ve never heard of”. (somewhere, in the confines of the dark web. Cue music.)
The piece then features a woman from a group that combats “misinformation online” who urges the son or daughter not to get confrontational with their Dad but to accuse him of being inaccurate and stirring fear instead. The suggested article/video is entitled ‘No, the new coronavirus wasn’t created in a lab, scientists say.’ Today (Apr. 18) I checked and cannot find the report, CBC has scrubbed the piece from their site. But because we have internet here is the report if interested.
How quick are things escalating? And how arrogant and ignorant are such leaders to think they could actually pull this off? Executive Director at the WHO Health Emergencies Program, Dr. Michael Ryan, said during an interview: “In most parts of the world, due to lock-down, most of the transmission that’s actually happening in many countries now is happening in the household, at family level. In some senses, transmission has been taken off the streets and pushed back into family units. Now we need to go and look in families and find those people who may be sick and remove them, and isolate them, in a safe and dignified manner.”
In Dr. Sam Milham’s book, ‘Dirty Electricity‘, he presents a strong correlation between the incidence of ‘diseases of civilization‘ (diseases that emerged alongside modern civilization, including cancer, diabetes and obesity) and the introduction and proliferation of electrification and wireless technology. Because all wireless technology functions by sending and receiving signals using electromagnetic radiation. Milham provides strong evidence that increased electromagnetic field (EMF) exposures yield increased rates of disease, and specifically, types of disease that would not otherwise exist. As it is, our smart phones haven’t left our side for over ten years now, with it held to our ear, staring at it, always having it near-by, or in our pant’s pocket 24/7.
Milham and many others, feel it is massively irresponsible to deploy 5G, especially on a wide-scale, because the exposures of it are not only unprecedented, they are also untested, and there have been no surveys to indicate the levels of 5G EMF radiation to which people will be exposed. Many also believe that this is, in part, due to the fact that EMF emissions play a large and rapidly growing role, in a toxic mix of other pollutants that are depriving our immune systems of their ability to fend off disease and illness. And that EMF has many effects on humans beyond just the immune system health. Indeed, in 2018, the US National Toxicology Program, released the results from a $30 million study finding “clear evidence” that exposure to cell phone radiation increased the incidence of cancer and genetic damage in mice. Beyond cancer, multiple peer-reviewed scientific studies have also demonstrated that exposure to this type of radiation can result in a wide variety of conditions, including: nausea, hair loss, swelling, low energy, appetite loss, bone marrow damage, depression, organs damage, infections, confusion, incapacitation and death.
Dr. Cindy Russell in Santa Clara Medical Association’s The Bulletin references a number of studies linking 5G millimeter wavelengths to heart problems, birth defects, decreased antibiotic sensitivity, cataracts, and immune system suppression. Dr. Russell calls strongly for the development of safety regulations and thorough pre-market testing of 5G technologies.
The review “Human disease resulting from exposure to electromagnetic” by David O. Carpenter, from April 28th 2013, summarizes the evidence stating that excessive exposure to magnetic fields from power lines and other sources of electric current increases the risk of development of some cancers and neurodegenerative diseases, and that excessive exposure to RF radiation increases risk of cancer, male infertility, and neurobehavioral abnormalities.
In Dr. Martin Pall’s book about 5G health risks, he outlines eight pathophysiological effects caused by exposure to non-thermal levels of EMF radiation: Attack our nervous systems including our brains leading to widespread neurological/neuropsychiatric effects and possibly many other effects. Attack our endocrine (that is hormonal) systems. Produce oxidative stress and free radical damage, which have central roles in essentially all chronic diseases. Attack the DNA of our cells, producing single strand and double strand breaks in cellular DNA and oxidized bases in our cellular DNA. These in turn produce cancer and also mutations in germ line cells which produce mutations in future generations. Produce elevated levels of apoptosis (programmed cell death), events especially important in causing both neurodegenerative diseases and infertility. Lower male and female fertility, lower sex hormones, lower libido and increased levels of spontaneous abortion and, as already stated, attack the DNA in sperm cells. Sperm counts have dropped by more than half since the 1970s. What’s causing male fertility to plummet? There’s no one definitive answer, but there is plenty of research to show that electromagnetic fields negatively impact sperm quality. Infertility is a growing and unsolved problem. But even if increased exposure to radiation doesn’t make us infertile per se, it can still lead to an increase in abnormal sperm. Sperm that contain mutated genetic information, which is then passed onto our offspring. And eventually, across the generations, the gene pool is irreversibly altered.
Other neurological/neuropsychiatric effects Dr. Paul found, were that EMF’s can also produce excessive intracellular calcium [Ca2+] and excessive calcium signaling, and attack the cells of our bodies to cause cancer. Such attacks are thought to act via 15 different mechanisms during cancer causation.
As far as who is more at risk, babies. Because they absorb more radiation. A 2014 study, published in Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure, “Children absorb more MWR [microwave radiation] than adults because their brain tissues are more absorbent, their skulls are thinner and their relative size is smaller,” and “When electrical properties are considered, a child’s head’s absorption can be over two times greater, and absorption of the skull’s bone marrow can be ten times greater than adults.” This leads to cumulative effect. Children are now being exposed to EMF from basically birth, with cell phones, wireless baby monitors, big screen TV’s, modems, wifi routers and smart meters, and in ever greater dosages. By the time they reach adulthood their cumulative exposure might be at a level probably not yet seen, and certainly never before tested in humans. Besides the health effects, our biggest problem with 5G is that we’ve allowed ourselves to become completely dependant on it. Can you imagine if the internet suffered a global outage, even temporarily: our transport, payment systems, hospitals, communications, traffic lights, business’, smartphones, and the entire “internet of all things” would collapse. Covid would be the least of our worries.
In a “Timeline” nutshell, 5G operates at frequencies that have never been used in consumer applications before. Today’s cellular and Wi-Fi networks rely on microwaves, a type of electromagnetic radiation utilizing frequencies up to 6 gigahertz (GHz) in order to wirelessly transmit voice or data. 5 G applications on the other hands will require unlocking of new spectrum bands in higher frequency ranges above 6 GHz to 100 GHz and beyond, utilizing submillimeter and millimeter waves
How we got here. After 1991 (2G), it was off to the races. Our mobile devices could call and receive and text, using up to 1.9 GHz (gigahertz). 1998 (3G) was more calling and receiving, texting and internet, by using up to 2.1 GHz. 2008 (4G) even more texting, internet, and video. This used up to 2.5 GHz. Since 2019 (5G) our smart phones can Bluetooth calls, earbuds, text, internet, HD and 3D video, and will be using up to 95 GHz. (Not 9.5 but 95). Please make your own conclusions. As I am just connecting dots from over a decade of research and inquisitiveness, besides of which on many levels some of it actually makes sense.
Covid – globally, 57,133 people are currently in serious or critical condition. While 19.8 people per million (or 1.98 people per 100,000) have died.
In Canada, 35 people per million have died (3.5 per 100,000). Nearly half of which were residents of nursing homes. With a total of 1,310 Covid deaths to-date, comparatively, the average death rate for influenza in Canada is 500 to 1500 cases per year.
In the US, there have been 37,175 Covid deaths, 112 per million or 11.2 people per 100,000.
Apr. 19Th: Here in sunny BC, the government has finally stopped using the March 27th horrific “worst-case scenario” plan, which was based on experiences in northern Italy and Hubei, China. A projection where thousands of British Columbians were projected to die and hospitals war zones. They are switching to other future modeling exercises, such as a “huge second wave” at some undetermined time in the future. Hopefully they base their projections on further testing, which is starting to show an altogether different scenario.
For instance, the CDC is now “actively looking into” into universal Covid testing at Pine Street Inn homeless shelter, in Boston’s South End a week and a half ago. Of the 397 people tested, 146 people tested positive and not a single one of them had any symptoms. Indeed with ever more testing, the results are showing more people are being identified with Covid, but at the same time, the vast majority are showing no symptoms, which means we only need to protect the immune compromised elderly. With ever more instances of under-counting and under-reporting cases and deaths due to Covid in institutions like nursing homes, prisons, homeless shelters and other settings popping up, and numbers being systematically misrepresented to convey much greater rates of death vs infections as dozens of leading medical experts have proven, its as though officials are trying to compensate for something. Like the truth. In some countries, the truthfulness of the “official” numbers is starting to become a hot potato. And it’s not like I feel Covid should not be taken seriously, but it just seems someone’s cooking the books, and the reported numbers are being artificially falsified to generate heightened panic.
Back in BC, to-date, 60,000 of us have been tested, with 1,618 testing positive for Covid. The number of fatalities is now 78 (15.6 per million/1.56 per 100,000), with the vast majority seniors in nursing homes. There are currently 119 people hospitalized for Covid, down from a peak of 149. With thousands of ICU beds available because of the cancellations of more than 14,000 elective surgeries over the past month, to-date there were only 58 Covid patients using them. But according to new “projections”, as many beds as possible will still be reserved for a predicted “pandemic surge”, and then later a “second wave “ in the fall. Even if some of the more drastic public health restrictions start to ease slightly next month. At its peak ICU beds in BC were running at about 70 per cent capacity, including non-Covid cases. Three days ago it was only 46 per cent. Currently there are 4,632 empty beds in BC hospitals, with an occupancy rate of 59%.
On the Island, pre-Covid, the occupancy rate of hospital beds at the Royal Jubilee in Victoria, and the Nanaimo General, was normally 70-80%. Today it’s 48%. Together they can care for 40 critical care patients, today there are only 2 Covid patients in ICU. For the “predicted second wave” the Jubilee is building a new high acuity unit with eight beds, while Nanaimo General is building a new 12 bed ICU unit.
Almost 700 ventilators are available across the province. The current number of Covid patients relying on them is 38, down from a peak of 55 a week ago.
School closures, bans on large gatherings, park, restaurant and bar closures, bans on visiting seniors’ care homes, severe travel restrictions and a major curtailment of the service sector is for some reason projected to stay shut-down for perhaps months. Some of the new social-distancing measures, like the two-metre distance rule on social interactions, will likely remain in force for as long as 18 months. Or as BC health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said the other day, “This is not the end for us. It’s not even the beginning of the end. To quote Churchill, it is perhaps, maybe, the end of the beginning.” Ah yes, another butchered old war quote.
Apr. 20th To-date, doctors have been reporting that the most severe cases of Covid seem to be associated with adult respiratory distress syndrome (inflamed or “hard lungs”), heart problems, low blood pressure, making one breathless and disorientated, kidney failures requiring dialysis, and even neurological issues affecting nerves in the brain. along with a shopping list of other ailments and underlying issues. But also, and predominately, it looks like Covid’s main target is the upper respiratory tract, which unfortunately, our immune system isn’t very good at protecting. According to Ian Frazer of the University of Queensland, coronaviruses are particularly difficult to create safe vaccines for as it is, but there are several reasons why our upper respiratory tract is a hard area to target a vaccine. “It’s a separate immune system, if you like, which isn’t easily accessible by vaccine technology,”
The upper respiratory tract is the body’s first line of defence. It starts with the air we breath in through our nose and mouth. In the nasal cavity, a layer of cells (mucous) acts as a filter and traps pollutants and other harmful substances found in the air. Next, air moves into the pharynx, a passage that contains the intersection between the oesophagus, where our food and drink go, and the larynx (our voice-box) where the air goes. The opening of the larynx has a special flap of cartilage, the epiglottis, that opens to allow air to pass through and enter the lungs, but closes to prevent food from moving into the airway. The lungs remove the gases, especially oxygen, from the air and distribute it throughout our body. At the base of the lungs is a sheet of skeletal muscle called the diaphragm. The diaphragm separates the lungs from the stomach and intestines. The diaphragm is also the main muscle of respiration involved in breathing, and is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system.
Frazer explains that the upper respiratory tract is effectively considered “an external surface for the purposes of immunization.” And “a bit like trying to get a vaccine to kill a virus on the surface of your skin.” This “outer layer” of (epithelial) cells in the tract is our natural barrier to viruses, and is difficult to produce an immune response which can reach them. And worse, if a vaccine causes an immune response that doesn’t benefit the target cells, the result could potentially be worse than no vaccine at all. “One of the problems with corona vaccines in the past has been that when the immune response does cross over to where the virus-infected cells are it actually increases the pathology rather than reducing it,” said Frazer. “So that immunization with SARS corona vaccine caused, in animals, inflammation in the lungs which wouldn’t otherwise have been there if the vaccine hadn’t been given.” But then we also don’t have vaccines against HIV and cancer, despite decades of efforts and billions of dollars. So this time, in typical totalitarian fashion, we are told that the scientists who created Covid in the lab, should be trusted to find us a cure.
Using the same logic, along with a controlled biased and morally corrupt mainstream media, governments justify the fears it propagandizes to get people to panic, who then turn to these same governments and media for accurate information and to be told what to do. This is called manufacturing consent, and they’ve had over 70 years to perfect it. The government blames the virus, not it’s own shortcomings or itself, as if the virus is the one dictating policy. The government creates such fear for it’s own purposes, such as the wars on terror, drugs, poverty, climate change, further growth of the surveillance state, and any number of boogeymen. It then stands back blaming it’s own actions on the boogeymen which they created. Covid was able to run rampant, and to be believed that it was going to kill millions of us, even though life itself is not without risk, because of our world only a few short months ago, where identity politics inundated our societies. A world where no blame for anything was to be put on China, where everyone not thinking as you, were instantly deemed either a racist, bigot, sexist, a privileged Caucasian, anti-Semite, or xenophobic, or all of them. Feelings over facts, safe spaces, arguing for free speech by not allowing the other person to say anything, climate change will kill us all in ten years, no borders, and of course Trump Derangement Syndrome. It makes me sick to my stomach. Oh wait, is that a symptom of Covid, I’ll be right back, it is imperative I take my temperature.
Economists-turned-epidemiologists and “scientists” are recommending that for countries to start opening up again, they must all produce enough Covid test kits to test their entire populations. Which they say will satiate everyone, and the economy, because then everyone will have an ID card, or perhaps a badge to wear signifying the result of the test, whether that be a happy face pin or an arm band with an X or the Star of David on it.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, in an interview this past weekend was asked if it were advisable for the interviewer to give her grandmother, who has “vulnerable respiratory systems,” a hug at the peak of the coronavirus pandemic. At first Fauci replied in the negative, but then said, in perhaps a Freudian slip, “When [the coronavirus rate of infection] goes down, and gets down to almost zero… there is an antibody test that will be widely distributed pretty soon, in the next few weeks, that will allow you to know whether or not you’ve actually been infected.” Adding, “I can imagine a situation where you take an antibody test and you are absolutely positive that you were infected and you did well, then you could hug the heck out of your grandmother and not worry about it.” American writer and journalist, Robert Bridge asks, “If it is deemed safe for those antibodies-positive people to “hug the heck” out their grandmas after proving their immunity credentials, then why on earth is it also not permissible for these same people to be at their jobs, places of worship, or at least the corner pub enjoying some semblance of happy hour?”
A person who gets infected and recovers is immune, with the majority (80%) who are infected showing no symptoms at all. If they were not tested they wouldn’t even have known they had it. And if someone has such natural immunity to the disease then they can no longer become ill or spread the disease, and they are no longer a risk factor to the most vulnerable members of society, namely the sick and elderly. Such natural infection and recovery is the best and most effective vaccination possible.
Which means that by practising a severe form of “social distancing,” and “stay in place” which countries around the world are trying to implement, the ability of the human body to acquire the antibodies, which eventually leads to ‘herd immunity’ in the overall population, is being denied. What sort of herd mentality is that?
If we allowed herd immunity to occur, the virus would have less chance to mutate due to the lack of available hosts, it’s lifespan would have been shortened causing the curve to flatten earlier, because the most vulnerable died first, and the disease would have less chance on returning somewhere down the road, and perhaps being more virulent. But the biggest thing to not happen, if we were allowed to achieve herd immunity, would be that a wide-scale vaccination program wouldn’t have to be dictated. No one can question that vaccines have been an inherent good for civilization; they have helped eradicate some of the worst diseases mankind has ever faced, like smallpox and polio, but this vaccination program will be mandatory and a requirement forced on individuals before they are able to participate in any sort of public events again. With the vaccine itself containing nanotechnology to ‘mark’ and surveil those injected.
The biggest problem today is the utter lack of transparency. And that we are being lied to and we know it but are afraid to act or speak out because we’d be banished from the herd, fined, ridiculed, shamed or even arrested. Government deliberations and decisions are being “classified” almost immediately, thereby not allowing a hopefully educated populace to make the proper decisions in our lives.
Could you imagine if people like Daniel Ellsberg were still around? An American economist, activist and former US military analyst who, while employed by the RAND Corporation, precipitated a national political controversy in 1971 when he released the Pentagon Papers, a top-secret Pentagon study of the US government decision-making. Or people like US General, Smedley Butler, who exposed a fascist coup d’état against the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration in 1933. Or 1974’s Karen Silkwood, William Binney in 2002, Jim Wetta in 2010, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, and Julian Assange and Wikileaks lately. As to Wikileaks, even US intelligence officials have begrudgingly acknowledged, that Wikileaks actually enjoys an unusually high reputation for accuracy. Or even very recently, Li Wenliang, a Chinese ophthalmologist at Wuhan Central Hospital who warned about the Covid virus on Dec. 30Th 2019. On Jan. 3Rd 2020 he was detained by authorities and no doubt in very blunt terms was warned to keep his mouth shut. Li returned to work but later contracted the virus from an infected patient and died from the infection on Feb. 7th at 52 years of age. If more truth was exposed today, would we be then making better and smarter decisions? Would we be allowed to?
All for one and one for all; globally, there have been reportedly 170,423 unfortunate deaths to Covid. Or 21.9 people per million or 2.19 people per 100,000. The majority of testing is being performed in the US, Russia, Germany, and Italy. It looks like global Covid deaths per day, peaked on Apr. 14Th, with 10,761 deaths. On Apr. 20Th, there were 5,366 deaths.
In Asia, overall lock-down periods are now generally matching with the Covid life cycle (up to 2 weeks incubation + 3 weeks from symptoms to recovery) with many countries now in the recovery stage, with occasional flare-ups in nursing homes and migrant worker’s shelters.
Well that didn’t take very long, with China mostly reopening their mainland economy, it was back to trying to crush the insurgent pro-democracy movement in the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong. On Apr. 18th, Hong Kong police arrested 15 pro-democracy movement activists, including media tycoon Jimmy Lai Chee-ying, and 14 other supporters. Several former lawmakers were also detained and arrested. The sweeping crackdown comes more than six months after the last major pro-democracy demonstration in the city, though some protesters took to the streets during the early weeks of the corona outbreak to demand that borders be closed and other heavy handed measures, be taken by the city government to prevent a re-run of the SARS outbreak that spread through Hong Kong’s densely stacked apartments and hospitals in 2003, which infected more than 1,700 people, 300 of whom died.
The pro-democracy demonstrations were first set in motion last spring in response to an extradition bill being expedited by the CCP that would have made Hong Kongers subject to prosecution (and, they feared, persecution) in mainland Communist Party-controlled courts. They were the same protests where if anyone in pro sports, Hollywood, or mainstream media in the US and Canada, spoke out and showed any bias for the protesters, the CCP waved its finger and made them apologize, and in some cases shame them. But why now the crackdown, just as Hong Kong’s economy is already reopening, and locals are growing more comfortable being back out in the street. Are they going to prosecute the roughly one-third of Hong Kong’s population who engaged in, at one time or another in the protests? Or just using the quiet time to round up key figures and organizers, and disappear them?
In Hong Kong, schools and public attractions have been closed for a couple of months now, and there are tight restrictions and laws on incoming travellers. Working from home is common, as is the enthusiasm for wearing masks, avoiding germs, and staying away from public gathering. And because containment efforts are working there is also speculation over what this means for the protesters. Especially considering about 62% of the 7.4 million residents say they distrust the government. But they put on their masks and slathered on sanitizer, even on strangers, and obediently sheltered indoors, some doing so before their government closed schools and universities and offices sent workers home. The new coronavirus seemed to have been contained by early March, with case numbers nearly flat, and just four deaths, this despite a shared border with mainland China and infections racing through South Korea, Japan, and Europe. In fact, many Hong Kong residents said they never abandoned their caution or sanitation routines after the 2003 outbreak. To-date Hong Kong has had 1,026 cases and four deaths, or 0.5 deaths per million or 0.05 deaths per 100,000.
Food for thought: The CDC estimated that during the 2017-2018 flu season, there were 61,000 US deaths (between 40,000 to 80,000 deaths). Estimated, because it is very difficult in differentiating what a person with underlying conditions dies from if they get the flu. The condition or the flu. No shutdown was even considered. Today when this “unsureness” happens Covid is simply written on the death certificate as the reason, to streamline the narrative.
Apr. 24th Takeshi Kasai of the WHO lays out the ground rules of their Covid plan and how it is to be played out, telling us that; “At least until a vaccine, or a very effective treatment, is found, this process will need to become our new normal,” he said. Adding, “Individuals and society need to be ready for a new way of living.”And millions say “Yes Sir!” and “We know!”, when we don’t, as we anxiously wait for a vaccine which may never arrive.
Despite what we are being told, the race for a vaccine will take time, if ever, for as many viruses do, scientists have discovered approximately 30 different strains of this virus. Its a guess to be able to figure out which strain could become dominant in the future. According a very recent paper, it seems the deadliest mutations were found in most patients across Europe, while the milder strains were the predominant varieties found in parts of the US, such as Washington state. While a separate report found that New York strains were imported from Europe, with death rates similar to that in many European countries, if not worse. And of course even if a vaccine were developed, there are many people around the globe who will not want to take any vaccine that is developed under any circumstances. I don’t blame them, or myself, even though I am one of those compromised people. Besides, by the time a vaccine arrives we may not need it. Or, each flu season, those so inclined, can go get their annual flu shot as they normally do.
Meanwhile, the global economic downturn is getting deeper with each passing day, and global food supplies are getting tighter and tighter, global trade has come to a standstill, making it more difficult to maintain normal food production operations, and countless workers have to stay home and not earn a living. In similar times throughout history, global famine usually followed, and the U.N. is sounding yet another fear-mongering alarm, as is their nature. Head of the World Food Programme, (U.N.’s food-assistance branch) David Beasley, told the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday, because of the coronavirus, “an additional 130 million people could be pushed to the brink of starvation by the end of 2020. That’s a total of 265 million people.” He added that “If we don’t prepare and act now to secure access, avoid funding shortfalls and disruptions to trade, we could be facing multiple famines of “biblical proportions” within a short few months.
Besides everything else currently going on, most people in the western world are refusing to sit still and reflect for more than the attention span of a goldfish. And still refuse to listen to what is going on around them. You laugh. In fact, the average attention span for the notoriously ill-focused goldfish is nine seconds, but according to a study from Microsoft Corp., in 2015, since the year 2000 (or about when the mobile revolution began) the average attention span of people dropped from 12 seconds to eight seconds. Perhaps highlighting the affects of an increasingly digitized lifestyle on the brain. Now try to shut that brain down for a few months.
What is this, a race to the bottom? So that a new world order may arise from its ashes with a culled down and obedient population that wouldn’t affect the earth’s dwindling resources or the actions of ruling bodies so much? Say it ain’t so.
Apr. 25th During the presidency of George H.W. Bush in the early 1990s, something disturbing unfolded at the US’s top biological warfare research facility, the Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) lab at Fort Detrick, Maryland. Specimens of highly contagious and deadly pathogens, including, anthrax, Ebola, a variant of AIDS, and Hantavirus, which causes a severe, sometimes fatal, respiratory disease in humans, disappeared from the lab. Two of the missing specimens had been labelled “unknown” – “an Army euphemism for classified research whose subject was secret”. Since the 1980s, the lab has worked closely with virologists and virology labs in Wuhan, China. As already mentioned, the Chinese government has since alleged that the virus had been brought to China by members of the US military, members of which attended the World Military Games in the country last October (2019).
Investigative journalist Whitney Webb’s February 2020 research demonstrated conclusively that the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA), which is involved in all sorts of nefarious activities including bio-warfare, had received funding in tandem with Fort Detrick since 2017 on genetic modification of novel coronaviruses (with a focus on bats) as well as the development of never before used DNA and mRNA vaccines which change the structure of DNA both for an individual and potentially for a whole race.
Ten years after the disappearing specimens from Fort Detrick, and seven days after 9/11, anonymous letters laced with deadly anthrax spores began arriving at media companies and congressional offices. Over the ensuing months, five people died from inhaling anthrax and 17 others were infected after exposure. The source of the anthrax was found to be from the specimens that disappeared from the lab at Fort Detrick. At first the attacks were blamed on Saddam Hussein by top government officials and mainstream media, then it was said to be from a Fort Detrick lab researcher who went “crazy”.
More recently, in July 2019, the same Fort Detrick lab was shut down by the CDC, after it was found that researchers “did not maintain an accurate or current inventory” for toxins and “failed to safeguard against unauthorized access to select agents.” The closure of the lab for its numerous breaches of biosafety protocols was hidden from Congress and would controversially, partially be reopened in Nov. 2019, before all of the identified biosafety issues were resolved. Requests to-date for release of materials related to the incident has only recovered that there were “two breaches of containment”, though the nature of those breaches and the pathogens involved were redacted in the inspection findings report obtained by the Frederick News Post.
In late June 2001, and only two months before 9/11, at Andrews Air Force Base in Camp Springs, Maryland, several Congressmen, a former CIA director, a former FBI director, government insiders and privileged members of the press met to conduct a biowarfare simulation. It specifically simulated the deliberate introduction of smallpox to the American public by a hostile actor. The simulation was called, and I’m not making this up, “Dark Winter”. Overseen by the National Security Council, and vice-president Dick Chaney, it was led by the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies (part of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security) in collaboration with the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the Analytic Services (ANSER) Institute for Homeland Security and the Oklahoma National Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism. Interestingly, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, who also co-hosted Event 201 in Oct. 2019, is now led by one of the authors of Dark Winter, Thomas Inglesby.
The Dark Winter exercise began with a briefing on the geopolitical context of the exercise, with either China, Al-Qaeda, or Saddam Hussein the bogeymen. Smallpox, a disease long eradicated in the many countries, breaks out in the state of Oklahoma. The participants in Dark Winter, quickly deduce that smallpox has been deliberately introduced. Not unlike what is unfolding currently with the Covid crisis, in Dark Winter, there is no means of rapid diagnosis for smallpox, no treatments available and no surge capacity in the healthcare system. The outbreak quickly spreads to numerous other US states and throughout the world. Hospitals in the US soon face “desperate situations” as “tens of thousands of ill or anxious persons seek care.” This is compounded by “grossly inadequate supplies” and “insufficient isolation rooms,” among other complications. And similar to Event 201, Dark Winter had great concerns about misinformation/disinformation that would go against official narrative and suggested increased social media censorship and “limited internet shutdowns” to combat the issue. And further discussed the suppression and removal of civil liberties, such as the possibility of the president to invoke “The Insurrection Act”, which would allow the military to act as law enforcement upon request by a State governor, as well as the possibility of “martial rule.” The Dark Winter script also discusses how options for martial rule “include, but are not limited to, prohibition of free assembly, national travel ban, quarantine of certain areas, suspension of the writ of habeas corpus [i.e. arrest without due process], and/or military trials in the event that the court system becomes dysfunctional.” Remember we’re not talking about today here, but a plan which was discussed nearly ten years ago.
Some of the individuals who participated in Dark Winter would play a role in the FBI’s “sabotaged” investigation into the 2001 Anthrax attacks and are now the same people handling major aspects of the US government’s response to the Covid crisis. Other participants including the morally corrupt commentator Judith (WMD in Iraq) Miller, other US reporters, and congressmen, received threatening letters with a white powder presumed to be Anthrax. In Miller’s case, the powder turned out to be harmless. Another major player in Dark Winter was Robert Kadlec, who was recently put in charge of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) overseeing the entire Covid response efforts. Other major players in Dark Winter are now key drivers behind the “biodefense” mass surveillance programs currently being promoted as a technological solution to Covid’s spread, despite evidence that such programs are actually worsening the pandemic, such as it is. Others still have close connections to the insider trading that recently occurred among a select group of US Senators, after a meeting with the CDC regarding the economic impact of Covid and are set to personally profit from lucrative contracts to develop not just one, but the majority, of experimental Covid treatments and vaccines currently under development by US companies.
In 2016, the Obama administration produced a comprehensive report on the lessons learned by the government from battling the most severe outbreak of Ebola in history, from Dec. 2013 to Jan. 2016, which infected 28,616 people, and killed 11,310 in countries around the world. In January 2017, outgoing Obama administration officials ran another extensive exercise on responding to a pandemic for incoming senior officials of the Trump administration.
In Chicago, in August 2019, the Trump administration’s Department of Health and Human Services ran a series of exercises that ran from January to August, 2019, called the Crimson Contagion 2019 Functional Exercise. Also involved were the Chicago Department of Public Health, the Office of Emergency Management and Communications, as well as the state Health Department and Emergency Management Agency. According to a report, officials at the National Security Council in the White House were briefed during the exercise. It was conducted to see how the nation would handle a pandemic, specifically a deadly global outbreak with no known cure. Continuing the Obama-era effort to think ahead about a pandemic.
In August (2019), Washington DC and 12 states including New York, Illinois, Arizona, and Connecticut, 19 federal agencies, 74 local health departments, and 87 hospitals, participated in a four-day exercise about a hypothetical outbreak of a respiratory virus breaking out in China and quickly spreading around the world by air travellers, who ran high fevers. In the scenario, in the US, it was first detected in Chicago, and 47 days later, the World Health Organization declared a pandemic. By then it was too late: in the US alone,110 million Americans were expected to become ill, leading to 7.7 million hospitalized and 586,000 dead. As per the exercise, stockpiled vaccines were not a direct match to contain the virus.
The exercise pointed to a number of national shortcomings, including insufficient federal funding sources for a severe influenza pandemic, confusion on how to apply the Defense Production Act, the current medical supply chain and production capacity could not meet the demand, and global manufacturing would be unable to meet the domestic demand for personal protective equipment and ancillary supplies, like ventilators. The simulation’s sobering results, contained in a draft report dated October 2019 that has not previously been reported, clearly shows how underfunded, underprepared and uncoordinated the federal government would be for a life-or-death battle with a virus for which no treatment existed. The draft report, marked “not to be disclosed,” laid out in stark detail repeated cases of “confusion” in the exercise. Federal agencies jockeyed over who was in charge. State officials and hospitals struggled to figure out what kind of equipment was stockpiled or available. While cities and states went their own ways on school closings.
And to think this exercise was completed only three months before Covid began to appear, and a month before the Event 201 exercise in October 2019. And yes the government was doing it’s due diligence and practising for such an event, as they should, but it’s absolutely stunning that when an event actually happens they were caught with their pants down, unprepared and made knee-jerk decisions, like shutting the global economy down, while their liar liar caught their pants on fire.
Despite all these games and simulations, judging how the medical experts are preventing entire nations from acquiring herd immunity, together with the mainstream media’s refusal to consider the merits of hydroxychloroquine, all roads are leading to a vaccine program, where we the people become isolated with fear, in order to be manipulated, where we will gladly give up our freedoms, privacy and integrity. Considering the forethought of more than 1,300 CEO’s abandoning their cushy perches in 2019, “forecasting” a total market collapse; financial blowout of the banking system, combined with economic lock-downs of the West; the Fed pouring helicopter money already in September 2019 (as part of QE4); and perhaps one of the most dangerous measures enacted involved a classified bill passed by the US Congress in Feb. 2020, before the epidemic even took off in North America, which formally mandates the head of the US Northern Command (NORTHCOM), who is also the head of NORAD, and previously mentioned in this timeline to be upping the propaganda, to become acting President of the United States under conditions of Martial Law, un-governability of the executive branch, or general chaos in America. And providing military support for non-military authorities (the police). One also has to consider that very recently, Israel has confirmed that US intelligence warned them and other NATO allies in the second week of November 2019 about a potentially catastrophic pandemic in Wuhan. (how could they possibly know?).
The whole thing stinks to high heaven. I hope more people open their eyes, do their homework, looking at all sides, and make rational and critical decisions about how we are to live our lives, as we see fit, and not intrude on others. We must start taking better care of our bodies and what we put in our mouths. And collectively, we need to grow a pair. We are social creatures whose humanness is sadly being taken away from us. Unfortunately, much like we were pre-Covid, we are turning on each other. Invasion of the Body Snatchers all over again. The government is supposed to work for us, we pay them, but somewhere along the way we have acquiesced to their power. And if we continue to acquiesce, what we thought we knew will be gone. While in the future, our children and grandchildren will ask why were we such cowards.
Apr. 29th A very recently released video, which had racked up over 5 million views, featuring Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi, co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, Calif., has been banned from YouTube. In the clip, Dr, Erickson asserts that there is only a “0.03 chance of dying from Covid in the state of California.” prompting him to ask: “Does that necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate people being out of work?”Erickson also asked why fatalities were being counted as Covid deaths when other ailments were actually more to blame. “When someone dies in this country right now, they’re not talking about the high blood pressure, the diabetes, the stroke. They’re saying ‘Did they die from Covid?’” Erickson said. “We’ve been to hundreds of autopsies. You don’t talk about one thing, you talk about comorbidities. ER doctors now [say] ‘It’s interesting when I’m writing about my death report, I’m being pressured to add Covid. Why is that?” Here is some of the text from that video.
Another doctor, from the Bronx, in New York city, argues that re-opening the economy might actually save lives. He also shares what it was like in a NY hospital at its peak (Apr.7th) and how quickly it came to an end. Read it while you can, it may too be banned.
Some numbers emerging out of the US. The latest analysis of available state and local data by the Associated Press shows that nearly one-third of those who have died in the US are African American, with black people representing about 14% of the population in the areas covered in the analysis. Though the analysis is incomplete because many of the Democratic states are not reporting racial information, five of the top 10 counties in the US with the highest per capita death rates, are in Georgia. With black people the largest racial group in all five of these counties. There have been more than 400 Covid deaths in Veterans’ Administration hospitals, more than the totals in 33 states. Currently, seven out of ten of the largest clusters of Covid cases in the US are in jails and prisons, with 27 deaths in federal prisons. And that the Navajo Nation alone has lost more people (58) to Covid than 13 states. The US military, with one million plus members, has had 26 deaths due to Covid.
A recent outbreak at the Canadian federal prison in Mission BC, affected 40 inmates. There are now 106 confirmed cases at the federal prison, including 12 staff members. They have stepped up testing over the last few days of inmates and staff. A spokesperson for the prison said they are “making headway in dealing with this issue. There are currently only two inmates in hospital at this time but it is a very challenging virus.” No deaths and two sick in hospital out of 259 inmates and perhaps 80 staff. Shut the prison down! Oh, right, it already is. Open it up!
Been feeling a bit like a guinea pig lately. A smoker my whole life I developed COPD (Chronic Obstruction Pulmonary Disease) about ten years ago. My lung’s cavities and holes (picture a sponge) are filled up with a lifetime of drywall dust, fibreglass resins and fibres, propane, diesel exhaust, campfire and bonfire smoke, well-worn socks, burning rubber, kerosene, gasoline, and paint fumes, air-embolism problems with my left lung from a career as a diver, stove smoke, incense, scented candles, bowls, bongs, and joints, and of course a lot of tar. Soon after being diagnosed the lung specialist gave me a vaccine that would keep my COPD somewhat under control and would last the rest of my life. I’ve never had a flu shot as an adult. As kids in the sixties, it seemed like we had to have one every other day.
Over two years ago a large cancerous growth had taken over my right lung, I dropped down to 115 pounds and they gave me four months. A Cat Scan revealed the beast in all its glory, and showed spots on my lymph nodes between my lungs. So the idea was to pop into the hospital for an afternoon, they’d put me out, make a slit in my throat go down with an endoscope and take a piece out and do a biopsy on it to see if it too was cancerous, and I’d be back home for dinner. But backing out they nicked a vein in my chest. Thankfully the cardiac ward was next door. I awoke on a bed, with two tubes coming out of my abdomen, and higher than a kite on fentanyl. The scar runs from my throat down to the bottom of my chest, from opening me up and looking for the severed vein and fixing it up, then stitching and stapling me back together again. I was now closing in on my expiry date but now had to heal from basically having heart surgery. On my expiry date, I was on my only option, aggressive radiation treatment. After tattooing a target on my chest it was every day Monday to Friday for three and a half weeks, getting zapped. Totally drained me. But by that summer, with the assistance of some heavy duty drugs, I actually was able to paint, sand, and paint again, the boat. Though it took me about five times as long as it usually did. The docs were more optimistic than I should have been at the time. But they thought if I could last until the end of the year it’d be a bonus. That year went by, then another, so far I’m about fifteen months past my last expiry date. Fingers crossed.
I’ve put a lot of thought into death, and have all my affairs in order for that time. But I’ve also always been a day to day guy. Make today count and try really hard to be in the moment. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow isn’t even here yet type thing. Besides, I don’t think I’ll be pissed off at anything after I die, but, in the words of Canadian actor Keanu Reeves, when asked what happens after we die, answered, “Those who love us will miss us.” So I make today count, and do not fear the cancer, or having a stroke, or dieing in my sleep because my heart gave out, or getting hit by a bus, or swimming off a beach and a shark takes me out, or a virus kills me, or being struck by lightning. The only real fear is that after I’m gone, I hadn’t made a difference whether I was here or not.
I have no wind, so I must walk slow and take frequent breaks while walking up stairs. Everything I do has got to be in slow motion, and because my lungs are not distributing enough oxygen through my body, my hands and especially feet, are always cold. I also have to take a drug to calm the nerve pain in my legs, another symptom of lung cancer. But stopped taking the painkillers long ago, because when the cancer returns, which it eventually will, I am told it will be over rather quickly. So I figure I want to feel when such changes occur within me and be told I’ve got three weeks or whatever. Instead of feeling really shitty, seeing a doctor, and being told I’ve got a few days.
Now interestingly, over Christmas last year (2019) I got pretty sick and being stubborn old school, went to ground. Curled up on my bunk, tossing and turning, thinking the cod liver oil and vitamin D pills I was taking would nip it in the butt. For two days I was either puking or shitting or doing both at the same time and lying curled up like a baby. As it worsened it became harder to breath and I began to get worried. Finally heading into my second night I called my lady, who lives up Island, and she urged me to get to a hospital. Next thing I remember I was walking through the doors of emergency and could not breath. They later told me they could hear me coming, the gasping was so loud. They immediately admitted me and began oxygen treatment and inserted a drip. The emergency ward was busy, but at least I was given a bed which could be closed off with a curtain, while the corridors in the ward were packed with patients in either beds or wheel-chairs. Over night these people used face masks to cover their eyes so that they could at least try to sleep. At first they told me I had pneumonia, then after about twelve hours in the emergency ward, I was moved to a quarantined room and told I had Influenza A. That same day an administrator of the hospital came in and mentioned that its perhaps a good idea for me to prepare and contact the Hospice ward for my imminent arrival, and asked if I had my affairs in order. But by the next morning, whatever they were giving me was improving how I felt, and eventually I was just sleeping a lot. They allowed my son to visit, though he had to suit up, gloves and mask. On the third day in the hospital, and fifth day since I became sick, during my daily checkup with the doctor, we discussed vaccines and was surprised he felt somewhat the same about them as I do. He pointed at me and said I wouldn’t have to worry about a vaccine now. We laughed.
Influenza A mutates all the time and creates new strains from one flu season to the next. Past flu vaccinations will not prevent infection from a new strain. One of Influenza A’s sub-types is H1N1, and was the most common cause of the human H1N1 (Swine Flu) epidemic in 2009, and is associated with the 1918 Spanish flu outbreak. According to WHO “more than 207 countries and overseas territories or communities have reported laboratory confirmed cases of pandemic influenza H1N1 2009, including over 7,820 deaths”. Which is a tiny fraction of the annual number of deaths from seasonal flu.
On my fourth day in the hospital they released me. My car, which I don’t remember driving there, was parked in the car arcade and I had to walk every level until I found it. I was able to exit because the doctor had passed word down to the parking company to comp my couple of hundred dollars worth of parking. Which was nice. So anyways, the coronavirus.
I follow the guidelines, keeping to myself, as I’ve always done, but still getting up and about and meeting up with people, and shopping for supplies. I’ve held my grand-daughters hand and have even, heaven forbid, shook the hand of a friend, but at no time did I play with my face and was aware of what that hand did afterwards, until I was able to wash my hands really-really good. I keep my distance from people and when passing often will look the other way. Which sucks, because for some people, a friendly hello or smile, tip of the hat, and nod of the head from a passing stranger makes their day. I still do such things as a smile or a nod, an acknowledgement that we are both human, but its better if we don’t say anything, droplets and all. And when talking to someone outside I seem to pay attention to which way the wind is blowing more.
A week ago. It was a very warm beautiful Sunday. I drove over to Gonzales Beach to meet with my grand-daughter, Camilla, my son, and his lady. The small parking area was all closed off with “Danger” tape, with signs warning of “high sewage counts”. Camilla and her family were on a blanket in the sloping grass area, alongside the trail that led down to the water. The beach of fine white sand was nearly empty, with fair winds causing small slow-moving waves to rise and fall upon the gentle sloping beach. Behind us more and more small groups of people, mostly families, started showing up and were tentatively heading down. I took 26 month old Camilla’s hand and we followed. Her dad quickly caught up to us and carried her the rest of the way. It was her first time at a sandy beach. After Camilla’s mom brought the blanket and stuff down, we set up close to the waters edge, as the tide was running out.
Soon after two very young women showed up with yellow-vests and clipboards. Walking the beach, counting heads, and keeping track of how many people were arriving and leaving. I wondered if they were in contact with the police. The beach got quite busy over the next couple of hours. Walker’s, families, with kids playing together on the water’s edge, Frisbees being thrown back and forth, people engrossed in a book. People exercising. Couples sitting side by side, and groups of three or four friends sitting around. People just soaking up the sun. There were yips and laughter of all shapes and sizes. With everyone, except the families and the couples, keeping their distance from each other. Sure enough a few days later we were all informed that the latest tests show that this virus in droplet form does indeed stay contagious for up to three hours indoors, but in warm sunlight it lasts only one and a half to three minutes. Then it’s good to go. Kinda makes you wonder why playgrounds are closed.
Camilla and I filled buckets with sand, her wanting to trade shovels every once in a while, and we built a sand castle. Her mother even provided plastic “sand molds” of princesses. Taking her by the hand we explored the beach a bit, then I got down and took her sandals off. This was the first time stepping on sand, and experiencing that feeling. You could tell even after just taking off her first sandal, her toes and feet were reacting to something new. After the other sandal was removed she stood still, not sure, then slowly wiggled her toes. Then looking around she wasn’t sure where to walk as the sand was not smooth. She slowly stepped ahead and found that she didn’t sink into any of the small holes on the sand’s surface. By the time we got back to the water’s edge it was once again all new, wet sand. As we both looked out over the sea, I told her Nemo lived out there somewhere, and she was hooked.
The tide-line held pieces of yellow-brown bladderwrack kelp, their branches tipped off with little inflated bulbs and when walked on at low tide one was reminded of walking across a carpet of bubble wrap. Camilla smiled when I picked up a piece of it and said “this is bladderwrack.” We also played with little, immature, snake-like and uprooted hollow whips of brownish bull kelp. Camilla joined in when I began popping them. She wanted to head out further into the water and her dad took her hand and they slowly walked out to sea. The gentle slope allowed them to go quite the distance, and stayed shallow. When her droopy shorts got wet, they returned to shore where mom took them off, and they headed back out. I hung the shorts up on a “creation” my son had built with only a few sticks of driftwood, and sat on a log, and took it all in. The granddaughter I love and the good man my son has become. Every once in awhile, they’d stop, because nearby a golden lab was playing the stick retrieval game, no matter how far his owner threw it, or how how tired it was. Every time the dog flew into the water Camilla would burst out laughing. They got out as far as Camilla’s now wet and drooping diaper, which was becoming an obstacle, allowed them. They slowly made there way to shore and we soon bundled everything up and slowly made our way back up the trail like a line of Sherpa, me huffing and puffing taking up the rear. We said our good byes. Freshly diapered Camilla, safely encased in her expiry dated child seat, wanted me to get in the back seat with her. But instead I slowly swept her extra long bangs from her eyes and forehead and told her Grandpa loves Camilla very much. Waving at her mom, and very lightly and quickly hugging my son, both of us focusing on keeping our heads turned away from each other, I headed back to my car, parked a few cars down on the same street. When I got there I found I was boxed in. Jeez Louise, not much consideration, or very social distancing of themselves. But no problem, after a few back and forths, I was on my way. Drove back to the boat along Dallas Road, and the shoreline. Lots of dogs walking their humans, with everyone keeping their distance. It was a beautiful day. Felt like July. And the memories of that afternoon will be with me even after I’m gone, because hopefully the memories will be with Camilla and my son the rest of their lives.
May 2nd As to the five million of us British Columbians, Apr 31st marked 100 days since the BC government issued its first warnings about Covid. In that time cases rose, peaked and have fallen. With 25 new cases in the province the total number of people that have been diagnosed with Covid reached 2,112 (0.04% of the population). More than 90% of them were able to recover at home. The number of people in hospital overall due to the disease dropped from 82 to 79, while the number of people in intensive care fell from 30 to 24 (a five-week low). Hospitalizations peaked at 149 back on April 2nd, with ICU patients peaking at 72 on April 6th.
Not able to find BC testing numbers anywhere online, as of Apr. 30th, approximately 806,449 Canadians had been tested for Covid, with 6.5% (53,236) confirmed positive. Of these, most have either mild symptoms or no symptoms at all. In BC, testing is recommended for anyone with cold, influenza or Covid-like (similar to cold or flu) symptoms. But still does not recommend testing for people who do not have symptoms of the virus as the test isn’t reliable in that situation. The provincial government’s health officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry has said, “We still would not be testing everybody who has very mild illness for a variety of reasons. Not only because of capacity, because it’s a waste of resources for a lot of people, but also because we know this test is not 100 per cent. Early on, and when people have very mild symptoms, it can be falsely negative.” Of confirmed cases of Covid, globally, 2% are serious or critical, 98% are mild and seasonal flu-ish, and did not need hospitalization.
As of May 1st, 3,391 people have died due to Covid in Canada. (90 per million/ 9 per 100,000). We in BC have had 112 deaths (22 per million/ 2.2 per 100,000). Seventy of these deaths have been linked to residential care facilities, with the remaining 42 deaths representing 0.84 deaths per 100,000. There are currently outbreaks underway at 21 long-term care homes, three hospital acute-care units, four poultry processing plants, and Mission Institution, a federal prison. Also on May 1st, 207 people died in Canada of Covid. The most deaths attributed to Covid in one day, so far. Meanwhile, that same day, 788 people also died, from all other causes.
In Canada, in 2019, there were 287,725 deaths or 767 per 100,000 from all causes (38,308 in BC / 760 per 100,000); 80,000 people died of cancer, 53,134 of heart disease, 13,290 in accidents, 8,511 of the flu and pneumonia, 6,429 of Alzheimer’s, 3,811 people killed themselves, and there were 373 murders, most all of them knowing who killed them. To-date, as already noted, there have been 3,391 Covid deaths in Canada, and not the hundreds of thousands predicted. And which politicians refuse to admit were exaggerated. And seriously, considering overall monthly mortality rates in most all countries have seen no significant rise, if we hadn’t been told would we have known we were in an epidemic, or just a severe flu season. So why… oh never mind. Time will only tell.
The province will be releasing a reopening plan next week, with health officer Henry hinting that much of the plan will largely entrust residents with assessing the risk within their own circles and acting accordingly. Mostly because BC has taken a less severe approach to lock-down than some other provinces, and countries, because we didn’t fully lock down the economy, allowing construction, agriculture and other industries to continue operating. Though many small business’ may never reopen, the ones who are, are adapting quickly. In typical British Columbian fashion, Henry said it may be fine for young people who are on their own to connect with other small groups of friends. But someone who has a family member undergoing cancer treatment, for example, should consider avoiding expanding their circle much. And that there will be “No large group gatherings or indoor parties this coming summer, but we can look at how we can safely have more people and more contact in our lives.” Places where many seniors congregate, like bingo halls and casinos won’t be opening anytime soon.
One of the main tenets of Agenda 21 and 2030 is based on population control through higher mortality and sterilization. To facilitate this plan they have decided to use an epidemic to distance and isolate us, using fear and panic, and to force us to vaccinate, which could further bring on the disease. Because when the immune system has to go into action in order to alleviate mental and physical symptoms due to stress on the body, this leaves the body undefended, and viruses take immediate advantage of this opportunity. Deaths due to our response to Covid will continue to rise, for perhaps years to come, as people struggle to stay afloat in countries whose economies have been destroyed. Early and unnecessary death, suicide, family abuse, violence, despair, starvation, and loneliness will invade such countries equally.
Suicide rates before Covid were at all time highs, what are the numbers now? Just like, before Covid, death by overdose was also at all time highs. How’s that going? In the US, over the last couple of months, Planned Parenthood abortion clinics have seen a 300 to 400% increase in business.
How many divorces and more broken families? Though the opposite can also be true, where more relationships and family dynamics have become stronger.
How many people are having difficulty getting their meds or still waiting for that operation to take away the pain. How many are too afraid to go to the hospital and instead are dieing alone in their homes?
How many women and children have been locked-down with monsters? How many more unspeakable acts inflicted upon them? Monsters who are maybe drinking more, injecting or smoking more, and who have lost their jobs and know its permanent.
How many people are buckling under severe stress? Holding so many things inside which literally makes them sick to their stomach. Then worry that they might have the Covid. Unemployment causes stress, so does fear, financial problems, foreign agents in the form of vaccines, hunger, isolation, lack of physical activity, self-imprisonment, and any relationship or family problems due to these factors causes extreme stress. All stress that is insidiously and intentionally caused.
When is the last time children have been allowed to play with other children? How’s their education going? How many kids are missing out on important lessons like accountability, responsibility, respect and discipline which comes from team sports?
How many people have attempted to meditate even for only a few moments? How many are more educated than they were a month ago, and more aware? How many are cowering at home in fear, and if they do go out, they fear their fellow human beings? How much weight gain has gone on? Consumption of alcohol? How many are finally getting in shape for the first time in their lives?
How many are addicted to porn and/or gaming, besides the tens of millions who already were. How many are streaming Netflix for eight hours a day? Online gambling junkies? Or spending hours watching an endless parade of eight minute YouTube video clips. Watching four minute clips of two hour long podcasts and thinking they know it all. Just like how many people read the headline only and also think they know it all. How many are crying their way through manufactured talent shows? Or unreal and fake reality programs. As if having a camera following you around is in any way natural. Or have CNN or MSNBC on all day and being brainwashed while cowering in either fear, because there is a 99% chance they will not die of Covid, or angry confusion because of the saturation of cognitive dissonance. Where Rachel Maddow has replaced Walter Cronkite. No matter which way it goes from here on in, either way we’ll deserve what we get.
May 5th Hidden stories within the numbers.
Unbelievably still flying under the radar. It took the US, 231 years and 43 presidents to get to their first $6 trillion of public debt. This year (so far) they will need to borrow or print out of thin air (same difference), at least $3.7 trillion, which constitutes almost 20% of the entire US economy. The number for fiscal 2021, which starts in October, is going to be another $2.5 trillion at minimum, or probably more. Which all equals to more than $6.2 trillion over a two-year period. And why exactly did such an insane action occur? Well much like 9/11 which killed 2,996 Americans when Osama bin Laden supposedly planned and financed an operation, estimated to cost about $250,000, which then forced the US to spend twenty years, never ending wars, millions of deaths, massive immigration problems in Europe, erosion of freedom and privacy, and the division of their own populace, and upwards of $6 trillion, in revenge.
In so far, the Covid strikes the elderly, the frail and the already disease-afflicted; and that these vulnerable populations should have been told to stay home and keep out of harm’s way completely. Especially the 15,600 nursing homes in the US which are home to some 1.5 million residents, of which one-quarter (425,000) are over the age of 80 years. Instead the US listened to the “experts”, the WHO, CDC, and Dr. Fauci who exclaimed there was going to be millions of deaths. So the US government insanely decided to shut the entire economy down, which to-date has wiped out $4 trillion of their GDP, and forced then to spend as already mentioned, over $6 trillion, mostly bailing out corporations. At nearly the same time, many countries the world over did the same. What if the US had instead spent say, $30 billion of incremental money for Medicare/Medicaid and the state public health agencies to zero-in on protecting, isolating and treating nursing home residents? But instead, they came up with a one size fits all solution so that they could implement more state control, restrictions, and power, while once again eroding even more rights, freedoms and privacy of their populace, just like after 9/11.
We were told millions upon millions would die. There is to-date, 1,210,197 cases of Covid in the US, though only 2% (24,203 people or 0.007% of the entire population) are serious or critical and need hospitalization. For people over 65 years, current Covid hospitalizations are similar to recent high-severity flu seasons. According to CDC website, as of May 4th there have been 739,600 deaths from all causes, in the US this year. Included in this total, 38,576 Covid deaths, 66,094 Pneumonia deaths, 5,886 Flu deaths, 17,122 Pneumonia + Covid deaths, and 92,615 deaths from pneumonia, flu or Covid combined. Peak deaths attributed to Covid occurred the week ending Apr.11th.
Its all very similar in Canada, Parliament’s budget watchdog says that it’s likely the federal deficit for the year will hit $252 billion as a result of the pandemic, and could go even higher if emergency measures remain in place longer than planned. All because there are currently 31,352 cases of Covid, only 2% (557 people) in need of hospitalization. And 3,842 deaths (102 per million/ 10.2 per 100,000), with nearly 70% over 65 years. Meaning, there have been 1,152 deaths under 65 years. Or 0.0032% of Canada’s population, and our economy shut down because?
The $252 billion Canada is expected to pay out is only an estimate based on the almost $146 billion in spending measures the government has announced to help cushion the economic blow from the pandemic, estimated declines in the country’s gross domestic product, and the price of oil remaining well below previous expectations. So far, more than seven million people have received federal emergency aid through the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), which has paid out more than $25.6 billion in benefits, and is expected to reach 8.5 million Canadians, based on the latest federal figures. The Liberals have budgeted $35 billion for the CERB, which pays $2,000 a month for up to 16 weeks to anyone whose income has dropped below $1,000 a month. And by the time the smoke clears will end up costing the government much, much more. Another “wage subsidy program” will cost $76 billion, slightly higher than the $73 billion price tag the Liberals have put on the measure. The subsidy will cover 75% of employee salaries, up to $847 a week for 12 weeks, retroactive to mid-March and through to the start of June. With a Guaranteed Minimum Income coming soon no doubt, so that many will be allowed to stay at home permanently. But only if they behave themselves.
PM Trudeau wouldn’t speculate on how the government would handle the massive deficit once the economy rebounds. We are told that we have to deal with today and can’t worry about tomorrow, but tomorrow will come, and by then it’ll be our children’s and grandchildren’s problem.
So where is all this borrowed and/or printed bailout money going to? America’s ultra-wealthy elite have seen their net worth surge by $282 billion over the past 23 days, despite the fact that the economy is expected to contract by 40 percent this quarter. They have accrued more wealth in just the past three weeks than they made in total prior to 1980. Since that time (1980), their wealth has risen by over 1100 percent while median household wealth increased by barely five percent. In 1990, the total wealth held by America’s billionaire class was $240 billion; today that number stands at $2.95 trillion.
As it is, in the US, for the top 10% earners , 94% of their money comes from business equity. Bottom 90% of earners earn 7% of their money from business equity. 95% of financial securities and 91% of stocks and mutual funds are held by the top 10%. And what will make many serfs once again, 26% of total debt/ top 10% – 74%/ bottom 90%.
Since the Federal Reserve began it’s Covid bailout program, US stock market investors have gained, and this is not a typo, $109 million for every American that has died from Covid. Over the same time frame more than 30 million Americans have lost their jobs, or 434 jobs lost for every Covid death.
Such an oligarchy, have also captured legislative and executive power, controlling what laws are passed, by making representatives and senators millionaires. Thus, between 1980 and 2020 their tax obligations, measured as a percentage of their wealth, decreased by 79 percent. They are able to secure positive coverage of themselves by stepping in to keep influential news organizations afloat. For instance, Bill Gates has donated over $9 million to The Guardian, over $3 million to NBC Universal, over $4.5 million to NPR, $1 million to Al-Jazeera, and a staggering $49 million to the BBC’s Media Action program. Some, like Jeff Bezos, prefer to simply outright purchase news organizations, such as the Washington Post, themselves. Together they control much of the narrative that is being told to us, which many believe, but deep down know the kool-aid being served has a fishy smell to it.
As for Congress, for many members, the top investments in their stock portfolios include, Apple Inc, Microsoft, Bank of America, AT&T, Pfizer Inc.(one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies), Walt Disney Inc., General Electric (one of the world’s largest defense contractors), and Johnson & Johnson (one of the world’s largest producer of medical devices, pharmaceutical, and consumer packaged goods). House Leader Nancy Pelosi has over $25 million invested in Apple alone. How many have shares in Gilead?
What should have happened instead of a bailout, companies like Boeing, should have simply declared bankruptcy. Forced to restructure and carry on doing business. None of their plants or facilities would have had to close. And if they got their shit together and managed better, they’d have quickly got back to making a profit. That’s what us individuals have to do. But instead when they fail they get millions of our money, and we get a few hundred bucks, if we’re lucky, and then spend it on lottery tickets.
In actual fact, the economy crash going on today, crashed in 2008/09, but was glossed over, until Scotty on Star Trek pleaded “I can’t hold er’ any longer”, and Covid was used as the pin. The global economy was optimized for a vast and steady expansion of debt to fund an equally vast and steady increase in consumption, today that expansion of debt is no longer funded by consumption, because consumption is now shut down. Look at oil, they can’t even give it away. Which on some levels, hopefully might get us to think outside the box, which we should have done decades ago. But we were too busy consuming.
To band-aid the situation, but still in no way staunching the flow, governments around the world are substituting bailouts for revenue. This is, in no way sustainable for revenues, incomes, profits and debt service. Bailouts will fail. But the neo-liberals hope that when the smoke clears many industries will have become nationalized, and closer to their socialist nirvana.
They can use a keyboard to invent money and attempt to pull up out of the dive, but hyperinflation will only speed up the process of crashing to the ground. Ask the Romans, or late 18th century France, or the Weimar Republic of Germany in the 1930’s.
Quickly getting back to the children and grandchildren. Just like in Canada and most countries throughout the world, in the US schools are closed indefinitely, nation wide, affecting about 61 million people under 15 years. There have been, according to the CDC’s loosy-goosy definitions, five deaths attributed to Covid (0.008 per 100,000). In 2019, about 44,000 kids died in the US. The five Covid deaths so far this year represents 0.011% of them. But what about the teachers?
There are about 215 million US citizens between the ages of 15 and 64. They account for the overwhelming share of commerce, jobholders (including parents and teachers) and GDP. So far, 8,267 of them have died of Covid, a mortality rate of 3.6 per 100,000. The normal total mortality rate for this group is 335 per 100,000. So the US shut down the entire economy owing to a death rate to date which amounts to 1.1% of the normal mortality rate. That’s bat-shit crazy.
Then we have the elders. In the US there are about 52 million mostly grandparents and great grandparents over the age of 64 years. As of April 28th more than 35,000 died due to Covid (80% of all Covid deaths at the time), with 15,000 of these being among those 85 years and older. That’s 61 deaths per 100,000 for the group as a whole and 230 per 100,000 for the 85 years and older. This all equates to the fact that the risk of death by Covid is more than 7,000 times greater for us elders than kids. As for those afflicted with a severe comorbidity, and likely as not to be in the care of a nursing home, risk of death is 29,000 times greater than the kids. Thus most are self isolating, and looked down upon when they do get out and about.
As to lockdown or not, in the heavily locked down state of Maine, there have been 3.8 Covid deaths per 100,000, 53% of these deaths were in nursing homes, meaning that the actual Covid-mortality rate for the general population is just 1.8 per 100,000. In Massachusetts, which is also heavily locked down, there have been 45.7 deaths per 100,000, with 56% of them, nursing home fatalities,with the average age of 82 years, meaning the general rate is 21 per 100,000. Comparatively, Sweden has one of the least restrictive lockdown regimes in the world, schools, businesses, restaurants and retail remained open, yet its mortality rate of 22 per 100,000 equals the lockdown state of Massachusetts.
In the heavily locked down state of Washington, where the first Covid cases occurred, upwards of 40% of the 690 deaths to date have been in nursing homes, meaning that its general population mortality is just 6.0 per 100,000. And though the general mortality rate from all causes for Washington state citizens is 900 per 100,000 annually, they are shutdown because the risk of death by Covid for the general population has so far been 0.7 % of the normal mortality rate average.
In other heavily locked down states, as of April 28th, 143 per 100,000 died of Covid in New York City, and 4.6 per 100,000 in the semi-socialist state of California. And altogether, in the US and Canada, there is overwhelming evidence that the severity of the quarantine regime has essentially zero impact on the mortality metrics.
And finally. Next time you are watching mainstream news, keep this in mind. Remdesivir is an antiviral medication developed and patented by the American bio-pharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences. It sells for $1,000 per pill. It has just been approved by the FDA in the US. The company has pledged to donate their current inventory and begin to mass produce.
Chloroquine is a generic antiviral drug (not patented), and developed around the world, including 12 pharmaceutical companies in the US alone. Cost of a pill, sixty-three cents. But the big-Pharma companies pay competitors to keep generic drugs out of the market, and have successfully lobbied Congress to keep Medicare from bargaining for lower drug prices, and as we see today, will once again get the inside lane. Their pitch is that they need the high prices to pay for better medicines. So lets consider that Gilead gets a contract with the US government to provide say, two million pills and they make about $2 billion. Then they get in on the global market and sell to other countries. Each billion pills they sell, they would make $1 trillion. Add in a few hundred million, just as expensive, vaccination shots and we are starting to talk big money here. Enough, that the couple of thousand sociopaths and psychopaths at the top can buy off anybody, including nations.
May 9th What has many confused, within their shroud of cognitive dissonance, is the craziness that perfectly healthy people, whether infected or not, are hysterically quarantining themselves, as opposed to the normal practice of the quarantining of the unhealthy and vulnerable people. Obviously many don’t understand the logic of quarantine or herd immunity. Nor do they understand that taking away one’s freedom of movement is about as bad a punishment as there is? Just ask a jailbird.
The decision to lock-down the populace and shut down the economies of many Western nations came from two directions. One direction came from Prof. Neil Ferguson, head of the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis at Imperial College London, who issued a widely-discussed model that forecast possible COVID-19 deaths in the UK as high as 500,000. Canada was told to expect 350,000 deaths, and if the US did not go into immediate lock-down, up to 2.2 million Americans would die. In both US and UK cases Ferguson relied on data from the Chinese government, which did not shut their entire country or economy down, but instead locked down the provinces which were the most affected.
Ferguson’s report was held responsible for a dramatic u-turn by the UK government from a traditional public health policy of isolating at risk patients while allowing society and the economy to function normally, to a complete lock-down. Ferguson’s Imperial College model shared their findings with the White House Coronavirus task force in early March, and based on this model, Dr Tony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and Dr. Deborah Birx, physician and diplomat serving as the United States Global AIDS Coordinator for Presidents Obama and Trump since 2014, reportedly confronted Trump and pressured him to declare a national health emergency. Since then, a new critique of the Imperial College Model finds the study is “completely unusable for scientific purposes”.
Fraudulent models are nothing new to Ferguson. His dire warnings have not come to pass and the economies of countries around the world have gone into deep crisis based on such inflated estimates. Ferguson also heads the Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium at Imperial College, which is backed by the WHO, and lists as its funders the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Gates-backed GAVI, an international organization that was created in 2000 to improve access to new and underused vaccines for children living in the world’s poorest countries. From 2006 through 2018 the Gates Foundation invested more than $184 million into Ferguson’s Imperial College modeling operations.
It is simply amazing so many leaders accepted his modelling. In 2002 he predicted that up to 50,000 people in UK would die from variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (mad cow disease), possibly up to 150,000 people. A total of 178 people were officially registered dead from the disease. In 2005, Ferguson claimed that up to 200 million people worldwide would be killed by bird-flu or H5N1. By early 2006, the WHO had only linked 78 deaths to the virus. In 2009 he advised the UK government that swine flu or H1N1 would probably kill 65,000 people in the UK. In the end, swine flu claimed the lives of 457 people. This year he, as already noted, predicted over 500,000 Covid deaths in the UK, then once the damage to the economy was begun, in late March he backtracked and said 20,000 Brits may die from the coronavirus. His model later drastically lowered the US fatality estimates to between 100,000 to 200,000 deaths. On May 6th Ferguson resigned from his government post as researcher this week after he was caught breaking his own lock-down rules by meeting with his married mistress at his home, only two weeks after he himself was tested positive for Covid. If he talks like a hypocritical manipulator, and walks like a hypocritical manipulator, he is a hypocritical manipulator. But will he ever be held accountable, after he slithers away?
Another direction from which a shut-down was implemented came from the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) in Seattle, and by happenstance near the home of Bill Gates. Its Covid model also forecasted up to 2.2 million deaths in the US, unless drastic lock-down measures were followed. And that hospital resources such as hospital beds, ICU beds and ventilators would be overwhelmed. By April 7 IHME models revised that down to up to 200,000 deaths. Their last down revision put deaths at just over 60,000.
IHME was created in 2007 with a major grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In May 2015 IHME and the WHO signed a major agreement to collaborate on data used to estimate world health trends. Then in 2017 IHME got an additional $279 million from the Gates Foundation to expand its work over the next decade. That, in addition to another a $210 million gift in 2016 from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to fund construction of a new building to house several University of Washington units working in population health, including IHME.
Their fear-mongering included pumping out highly inflated models for state-by-state emergency room demands. Such inflated projections have wreaked havoc on the entire health care system. One of their “models” predicted the need for 430,000 intensive care beds across the US in March, states went into panic mode from New York to California to Pennsylvania and beyond. By the third week of April the reality was that hospital beds were empty, and hundreds of thousand of elective surgeries had been cancelled to make room for Covid patients who never showed up.
On April 9th the Public Health Agency of Canada predicted Covid to kill between 11,000 and 22,000 people in the coming months if we maintain strong control measures. They said that short-term estimates are more reliable, and it anticipated 500 to 700 deaths by April 15th. Their modelling data included different possible scenarios, but they warned that what happens depends very much on how Canadians behave to keep the respiratory illness from spreading. So if things go to shit it’s our fault. In the best-case scenario, only 2.5 to 5 % of Canadians would become infected. But with poor containment measures, the death toll could be much, much higher, the agency said. In the worst-case scenario, where 70 to 80 per cent of Canadians become infected, more than 300,000 would likely die. The agency said that the fight against Covid will likely take many months and require cycles of tighter and weaker controls.
Such wildly inaccurate projections were used to impose catastrophic social and economic restrictions across the US, Canada, the UK and many countries. It is obvious that for some strange reason, rather than let the population be exposed to the virus, where most develop antibodies that give them natural, long-lasting immunity to this coronavirus, Ferguson, IHME, Fauci, Birx, the WHO, and Gates and his colleagues, far prefer to create a vast, hugely expensive, new system of manufacturing and selling billions of test kits, and in parallel very quickly developing and selling billions of antivirals and vaccines. And then, when the virus comes back again a few months later and most of the population is unexposed and therefore vulnerable, again selling billions of test kits and medical interventions. Or as Gates has recently stated, “So we’re going to take the pain in the economic dimension, huge pain, in order to minimize the pain in disease and death dimension.”
Alex Berenson, a former New York Times reporter questioned the IMHE model: “Aside from New York, nationally there’s been no health system crisis. In fact, to be truly correct, there has been a health system crisis, but the crisis is that the hospitals are empty,” he said. “This is true in Florida where the lock-down was late, this is true in southern California where the lock-down was early, it’s true in Oklahoma where there is no statewide lock-down. There doesn’t seem to be any correlation between the lock-down and whether or not the epidemic has spread wide and fast.”
Today some states and countries are tentatively preparing to re-open their economies. Small business’s will adapt and innovate, but we’ll have to see how this goes, because we certainly cannot trust the “experts” and their modelling abilities. In places which have already started to re-open, there has been no rush to the doors, consumers are not showing up in the numbers of only a few short months ago. Which could be a good thing, that the time away made people think about how robotic they had become, so manipulated. Where we were spending money on things we didn’t need with money we didn’t have. Unfortunately, it probably is because people are either now broke, don’t have a job, or curled up at home in complete panic in fear of the Covid. Thank you mainstream media, and the nation’s leaders who could only be one or the other, completely hood-winked or they are complicit in the act, take your pick, and the majority of the populations who folded like a cheap suit.
Meanwhile, in the US, they will soon start biting their noses off to spite their face. Anger has become the epidemic, and when anger takes over stupidity rises. This is not new of course, but a continuation of how they were before Covid. Some are angry they are locked down, some are angry because others aren’t following social distancing protocol properly. Some are angry about losing their jobs, supply shortages, and very angry at their politicians. Many are too afraid to be angry. By the time of their election in November who knows how many will have turned on each other. The fuse I believe has been lit, and without anyone standing up to the plate and taking charge and giving proper and logical guidance, the death toll may be far higher than the epidemic itself. But then for certain factions in the US government (as well as in Canada and the UK), and their overlord, big-Pharma, this is what they want. And of course to make sure Trump is not re-elected, because then the sky’s the limit, and we will obediently prostrate before them. And gladly rat one another out for a few shiny tokens and a pat on the head. Giving up their individual sovereignty for a little bit of safety so that they don’t die. Forgetting that everybody dies. And that there are far worst things than death.
Globally, as of May 8th, there have been 275,703 deaths “attributed” to Covid. 3.54 deaths per 100,000 people. 70% of all Covid deaths have to-date occurred in the US, UK, Italy, Spain and France. Other than the US with 24 deaths per 100,000, the other four countries average 45 deaths per 100,000.
In Canada, there has been 4,567 Covid deaths (12.1 deaths per 100,000). Of the 31,811 who are infected, 98% have had mild or no symptoms at all, 2% (502) are severe or critical. And of the 34,515 cases to-date which actually had an outcome, 87% recovered, or were discharged, and 13% (4,567) died. 70% or 3,190 people over 65 years and 1,370 under 65 years have died. Still very tragic, as is any death, but at what cost?
“There will be in the next generation or so a method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears so to speak. Producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”
– Aldous Huxley, from a speech for the Tavistock Group, California Medical School, 1961.
Bill Nye is not a scientist. Greta Thunberg is not a climate expert. Hillary Clinton is not a president. CNN and MSNBC are not news networks. Jeffery Epstein did not kill himself. And Bill Gates is not a doctor, scientist, or king of the world.
But a host of mainstream corporate media outlets have led us to believe they are. As mentioned earlier in this Timeline, the Gates Foundation underwrites the entire Global Development section of the Guardian, and has given the British newspaper over $9 million. He also contributed over $3 million to NBC Universal, over $4 million to the influential French newspaper, Le Monde, over $4.5 million to NPR, $1 million to Al-Jazeera, and an astonishing $49 million to the BBC’s “Media Action” program, to name only a few. He who pays the piper, it is said, calls the tune. Gates is also the head of a gigantic media empire, including our social media (LinkedIn), entertainment (Xbox), hardware, and software like the Windows Phone and Windows OS. He also owns large stakes in media giants like Comcast and AT&T.
Comcast is the second-largest broadcasting and cable television company in the world by revenue and the largest pay-TV company, and the largest cable TV company and largest home Internet service provider in the US. It also owns NBCUniversal, DreamWorks Animation, MSNBC, CNBC, USA Network, SYFY and E! And in partnership with Sony Pictures, also own MGM and its affiliate studio, United Artists. In fact the “MS” in “MSNBC” stands for Microsoft.
While AT&T, is the world’s largest telecommunications company and largest provider of mobile telephone services. Besides owning Direc TV, in 2018 they purchased Time Warner for $85 billion and took control of WarnerMedia, including Turner cable television networks, Warner Bros., HBO, and other film and television production divisions. Such as CNN, CNN International, CNN en Español, and the CNN Airport Network. By 2019, AT&T had developed partnerships with health care providers to develop mobile health-related connectivity devices that aid inpatient care. Key products include a telemetry device that monitors patient metrics, while toggling between WIFI and cellular connectivity. These are all companies people believed in, and looking around today many still do. They have shaped generations’ opinions and lives, through our emotions, and know us better than we know ourselves. Manufactured consent indeed.
Back to Gates the “Wonderful”. Being the second richest person on the planet, his fingerprints are everywhere. Besides mainstream media, UNICEF, and the UK’s Imperial College, he’s monopolized global health research, governance, and reporting, and funds ongoing projects like the GAVI Vaccine Alliance, and Microsoft’s ID2020 digital ID initiative, (already mentioned Apr 3th of this Timeline) which is an electronic ID platform based on generalized vaccination, using tattoos and microchips. MIT engineers (funded by the Gates Foundation) have already developed a way to store medical information including vaccination history, under the skin, using a quantum dot dye that is delivered, along with a vaccine, by a micro-needle patch. The dye, which is invisible to the naked eye, can be read later using a specially adapted smartphone. This new bioluminescent vaccine is called, wait for it, “Luciferase”, which is also the generic term for the class of oxidative enzymes that produce bioluminescence.
In partnership with The World Economic Forum (WEF), Gates hosted the already mentioned pandemic exercise held Oct/ 2019 called “Event 201” (Oct 18th/Timeline), which specifically focused on coronavirus and projected over 65 million deaths worldwide. Interestingly, and perhaps even sinisterly, the WEF, through a partnership between the Gates Foundation, the Earth Bio-Genome Project and the Earth Bank of Codes are collaborating to sequence the DNA of all life on earth. It was estimated to take ten years and cost $4.7 billion.
Microsoft also recently defeated Amazon’s bid for an extremely lucrative $10 billion Pentagon cloud computing contract that sees the company instantly become one of the world’s most important military and security contractors. The Gates Foundation has also donated the most private money to the World Health Organization (WHO), and since the US recently suspended its payments to the WHO, the organization’s biggest contributor is now the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Another major contributor to the WHO is the GAVI Alliance (another Gates funded institute). Both of these organizations, along with the Gates Foundation of course, sponsored an event that was called “One World Together at Home”, and was aired on April 18th 2020. The minister presiding over the event was Lady Gaga, with co-pastors Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, and Celine Dion. It’s point was to promote the practice of social distancing during the Covid, and deemed a celebration of a “Covid culture”. It was presented by late night comedians Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert. And had the typical cast from Hollywood and the music industry, who all glorified life in lock-down. It did it’s best to normalize a world where confinement, isolation, and video conferencing were the new norm. And appeared to promote a long-term way of life, where all aspects of life, including arts, family, business and education, can be fulfilled through video conferencing. In this new world, human connections depend on an internet connection, where everything can be recorded and monitored. The event even had the Sesame Street puppet Abby Cadabby on hand to tell the children watching, “A lot of us are having some big feelings right now. I know I am. And that’s OK. Because we’re all in this together. When I get big feelings, I can just give myself a big hug. A self-hug”. The puppet then shows children how to give themselves a “self-hug” by putting their arms around themselves. Wow, teaching children to live without human contact. As for Bill Gates, he had this to say, when it was he and his equally sociopathic wife’s turn to speak, “The eventual end will come when we will have a vaccine that protects all of us, not just in the US, but in the entire world. There’s a lot of vaccine candidates that we’re currently backing and I’m optimistic that, by the end of late next year, one will come out. And we need to make sure that it gets out to everyone in the world.”
So we are to keep quiet for 18 months or so, and stay home, so that Gates’ companies have time to create a vaccine, and more importantly get a patent on it. Even though to-date, there has been no effective vaccines ever created to fight coronaviruses. So they will come up with an ineffective vaccine which everyone will have to take, whether you want to be vaccinated or not. And if you refuse you will not be allowed to leave your home or detention center.
In 2000 after taking control of India’s National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) the Gates Foundation mandated up to 50 doses of polio vaccines through overlapping immunization programs, to children before the age of five. In 2017 they were kicked out the country because the campaign caused a devastating non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP) epidemic that paralyzed 490,000 children beyond expected rates between 2000 and 2017. After Gates left India NPAFP rates dropped precipitously.
During Gates’ 2002 MenAfriVac campaign in Sub-Saharan Africa, Gates’ operatives forcibly vaccinated thousands of African children against meningitis. Approximately 50 of the 500 children vaccinated developed paralysis. South African newspapers at the time complained, “We are guinea pigs for the drug makers.” Nelson Mandela’s former Senior Economist, Professor Patrick Bond, describes Gates’ philanthropic practices as “ruthless and immoral.”
In 2009, the Gates Foundation funded tests of experimental Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines developed by Glaxo Smith Kline (GSK) and Merck, on 23,000 impoverished girls aged 9-15 in remote Indian provinces. HPV is a viral infection that’s passed between people through skin-to-skin contact. Approximately 1,200 suffered severe side effects, including autoimmune and fertility disorders. Seven died. Indian government investigations charged that Gates-funded researchers committed “pervasive ethical violations” such as pressuring vulnerable village girls into the trial, bullying parents, forging consent forms, and refusing medical care to the injured girls. The case is now in the country’s Supreme Court.
In 2010, the Gates Foundation funded a phase 3 trial of GSK’s experimental malaria vaccine, killing 151 African infants and causing serious adverse effects, including paralysis, seizure, and febrile convulsions to 1,048 of the 5,949 children vaccinated.
Also in 2010, Gates committed $10 billion to the WHO, saying “We must make this the decade of vaccines.” A month later, Gates said in a TED Talk that new vaccines “could reduce population.” And, four years later, in 2014, Kenya’s Catholic Doctors Association accused the WHO of chemically sterilizing millions of unwilling Kenyan women with a “tetanus” vaccine campaign. Independent labs found a sterility formula in every vaccine tested. After denying the charges, WHO finally admitted it had been developing the sterility vaccines for over a decade. Similar accusations have come from Tanzania, Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Philippines.
In 2014, the Gates Foundation announced an $11 million grant to MasterCard to establish a financial inclusion “lab” in Nairobi, Kenya. The grant will last three years, after which MasterCard said they would be willing to foot the bill for further financial expansion in the region. Gates also helped the pharmaceutical and chemical giant Monsanto Corporation, gain a stronger foothold in Africa.
In 2017, the WHO reluctantly admitted that the global explosion in polio is predominantly vaccine strain. Frightening epidemics in Congo, Afghanistan, and the Philippines, were all linked to vaccines. In fact, by 2018, 70% of global polio cases were vaccine strain.
A 2017 study showed that the WHO’s and Gates’ popular DTP (Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis) vaccine program is killing more African children than the diseases it prevents. DTP-vaccinated girls suffered 10 times the death rate of children who had not yet received the vaccine. WHO has refused to recall the lethal vaccine, which it forces upon tens of millions of African children annually. Dr. Peter C. Gotzsche, professor of clinical research, director of the Nordic Cochrane Center, and chief physician of Rigshospitalet and the University of Copenhagen has documented that big-Pharma’s “medicines” are the third largest killer after heart disease and cancer. Indeed, deaths on the planet due to Covid (to-date), 292,451. Last year, in the US alone, 250,000 deaths were attributed to “medical malfeasance”. This in an “advanced” nation, can you imagine elsewhere?
So no, Bill Gates is not a doctor, or a scientist, or king of the world, he is simply a narcissistic very bad man, who is adored and respected by millions.
May 17th – Despite humans having experimented with vaccines and inoculations (giving yourself a mild form of a disease to gain immunity) since the 16th century, vaccinations are quite novel to us. The first vaccine showed up in 1853, in the UK, for smallpox. Thirty years later another arrived for rabies and then sometime in the late 19th century the first virus was discovered (yellow fever). New species of human virus are still being identified, at a rate of three or four per year, with viruses making up over two-thirds of all new human pathogens, which is a lot considering most human pathogen species are bacteria, fungi and such.
In 1944 the first flu vaccine appeared, and by the 1950’s, vaccines (developed in the 1920s) for tuberculosis, and DTP (diphtheria/tetanus/whooping cough) were finally being used. And despite the polio vaccine becoming commercially available in 1961, by 1980 only around 20% of children in the world received the vaccines for tuberculosis, DTP and polio. After 1980, when WHO data on “global vaccine coverage” (defined as the share of one year olds having received a vaccine) began, ten years later coverage rates for the three diseases rose to approximately 80%.
As for smallpox, by 1967, it had already been eliminated in North America (1952) and Europe (1953), but was still widespread and causing regular outbreaks in multiple countries across South America, Africa, and Asia (but was never widespread in Australia). With renewed efforts by laboratories around the world, the development of the bifurcated needle, establishment of a surveillance system to detect and investigate cases, and mass vaccination campaigns, to name a few, by 1971 smallpox was eradicated from South America, followed by Asia (1975), and finally Africa (1977).
Though measles vaccinations have been available since the 1960s, today they have only reached around 69% of children globally (two doses), comparable to the HIB vaccine against a virus causing meningitis, which is now reaching 72% of all children worldwide. The immunization against hepatitis B, the world’s first genetically modified vaccine, was made available in 1968, and reached a global coverage of 80% in 2012. Today, and not in all countries, from birth to six years old, children receive fourteen vaccination shots in all. Playing the field so to speak, just in case and you never know, shots for Chickenpox, Diphtheria, Haemophilus influenzae type b, Hepatitis B, Influenza, Measles, Meningococcal, Mumps, Pertussis (whooping cough), Pneumococcal, Polio, Rotavirus, Rubella and Tetanus.
As to other viruses, influenza A strains have caused three global pandemics during the 20th century. The Spanish flu in 1918, Asian flu in 1957, and Hong Kong flu in 1968–69. And have all undergone major genetic changes.
In 1957 and 1958, an Asian Flu (Influenza A virus sub-type H2N2), spread around the planet killing an estimated one to four million people. (116,000 in the US). It hit Canada in the fall of 1957. Schools stayed open, though in outbreak areas there was perhaps 30% absenteeism including teachers. Public gatherings were curtailed, with the virus killing an estimated 5,000 Canadians. By the time it had run its course in the spring of 1958, this strain became the second most fatal flu pandemic in history. The Spanish Flu being the worst. The case fatality rate of this Asian flu was approximately 0.2%, and was most deadly in pregnant women, the elderly, and those with pre-existing heart and lung disease. It continued to circulate until 1968, when it transformed via antigenic shift into influenza A virus sub-type H3N2, the cause of the 1968 influenza pandemic. The 1957 outbreak also marked the first time a vaccine was prepared for a pandemic. And at no time was shutting down the economy considered.
The Hong Kong flu (H3N2) was a pandemic whose outbreak in 1968 and 1969 killed an estimated one to four million people all over the world, (fatality rate was 0.2%), including an estimated 4,000 Canadians, and an estimated 100,000 people in the US. Most excess deaths were in those 65 yrs and older. In Berlin, the excessive number of deaths led to corpses being stored in subway tunnels, and in West Germany, garbage collectors had to bury the dead due to insufficient undertakers. In total, East and West Germany registered 60,000 estimated deaths. In some areas of France, half the workforce was bedridden, and manufacturing suffered large disruptions due to absenteeism. The British postal and train services were also severely disrupted. But once again economies around the world did not shut down.
The H3N2 virus returned during the following 1969/1970 flu season, resulting in a second, deadlier wave of deaths. It remains in circulation today as a strain of the seasonal flu.
Then came HIV/AIDS in 1981. Over the past 39 years it has killed 32 to 43 million people. In 2018, there were around 37.9 million people living with HIV. Around 36.2 million were adults and 1.7 million were children under 15 years, while about 8.1 million people didn’t even know they were living with HIV. As of the end of June 2019, around 24.5 million people were accessing antiretroviral therapy. New HIV infections have been reduced by 40% since the peak in 1997. And though AIDS-related deaths have been reduced by more than 56% since the peak in 2004, in 2018, around 770 000 people died from AIDS-related illnesses worldwide, compared to 1.7 million in 2004. AIDS-related mortality has declined by 33% since 2010. The joint UN program UNAIDS, estimates that $26.2 billion (constant 2016 dollars) will be required for the AIDS response in 2020.
The 2009 H1N1 pandemic was the second H1N1 pandemic the world had seen, the first being the 1918 Spanish flu, but this was a new strain. Initially referred to as the “swine flu,” the virus had never been seen before in either animals or humans, but was thought to be most closely related to influenza viruses found in pigs in North America and Eurasia. Later, scientists discovered that in addition to elements of North American and Eurasian swine flu, the virus also contained aspects of North American bird and human influenza.
It had originated in Mexico in the spring of 2009 before spreading to the rest of the world. By June of that year, there were enough cases that the WHO declared the swine flu outbreak a pandemic. Between the spring of 2009 and the spring of 2010, the virus infected as many as 1.4 billion people across the globe and killed between 151,700 and 575,400 people. (fatality rate 0.1%) And occurred in two distinct waves, primarily affecting children and young adults, with 80% of the deaths in people younger than 65. That was unusual, considering that most strains of flu viruses, including those that cause seasonal flu, cause the highest percentage of deaths in people ages 65 and older. But in the case of the swine flu, older people seemed to have already built up enough immunity to the group of viruses that H1N1 belongs to, so weren’t affected as much. The highest hospitalization rates occurred in children aged less than 5 years of age. A vaccine for the H1N1 virus that caused the swine flu is now included in the annual flu vaccine.
According to the CDC, in the US, there were 61 million cases of H1N1, with over 274,000 hospitalizations, and nearly 12,500 deaths. The death count in Canada, was 428 people, with the virus confirmed in all provinces and territories, and carried a global mortality rate of 1.3 per 100,000 people. Unlike the seasonal flu common during the winter, many Canadians contracted H1N1 during the summer months. A follow-up study done in September 2010 showed that the risk of serious illness resulting from this swine flu was no higher than that of the yearly seasonal flu. For one month, at the beginning of the epidemic, a travel health warning was issued, recommending that travellers postpone elective or non-essential travel to Mexico. Businesses were disrupted and there were many restrictions, but economies did not shut down.
The 2002–2004 SARS outbreak was an epidemic involving severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-1). The outbreak was first identified in Foshan, China, on November 16, 2002. Over 8,000 people from 29 different countries and territories were infected, and an estimated 775 to 900 people died worldwide. (44 in Canada). The major part of the outbreak lasted about 8 months. A vaccine for SARS has still not been developed. Of course the ongoing Covid pandemic is caused by SARS-CoV-2, a strain of coronavirus related to the one which caused SARS-CoV-1, and as mentioned earlier in Timeline, to-date there has not been a vaccine yet developed for coronaviruses.
In 2012 there was the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus outbreak (MERS-CoV), where 862 people died, mostly in Saudi Arabia. No vaccine available.
Ebola ravaged West Africa between 2014 and 2016, with 28,600 reported cases and 11,325 deaths. The bulk of the cases and deaths occurred in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. The Ebola virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever, is a rare but severe, often fatal illness in humans. The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission.
Then there is the seasonal flu. Humans have a mortality rate of 0.1% when contracting the flu, meaning at it’s upper limit, every winter 1 in 1000 people die of influenza. Globally, annual influenza epidemics are estimated to affect 5 to 15% of the global population. Although most cases are mild, these epidemics still cause severe illness in 3 to 5 million people, and 290,000 – 650,000 deaths worldwide every year. In Canada, influenza causes an estimated 12,200 hospitalizations and 3,500 deaths each year.
In previous seasons, in the US, flu-related deaths have ranged from a low of about 12,000 during the 2011-2012 season to a high of about 56,000 during the 2012-2013.
Then came the 2017-2018 season. In the US it was overall, the deadliest season in more than four decades, since 1976, and even higher than the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic with an estimated 45 million people getting sick with influenza A (H3N2), 21 million people had to go to a health care provider, there were 810,000 hospitalizations, and perhaps 80,000 deaths. It was atypical in that it was severe for all ages. Making a bad year worse, the flu vaccine didn’t work very well with only a 38% vaccine effectiveness (VE). Though the CDC estimated that influenza vaccination during the 2017–2018 influenza season prevented 6.2 million illnesses, 3.2 million medical visits, 91,000 hospitalizations and 5,700 deaths “associated with influenza.” Once again, economies do not shut down each flu season.
In the US (as of Mar.26, 2020) this year’s flu season, 2019-2020, the CDC estimates between 39 million and 56 million flu illnesses, at least 410,000 hospitalizations, and as many as 60,000 deaths from flu this season, of which 180 are pediatric. To-date the overall cumulative hospitalization rate was 67.9 per 100,000 population. This number is higher than all recent seasons, except for the 2017-18 season. With hospitalization rates in children 0-4 years old and adults 18-49 years old, the highest on record, surpassing the rate reported during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.
On average 41,400 people die of influenza-related illnesses each year in the US. On March 11, CDC director Robert Redfield admitted during a House Oversight Committee hearing that the CDC had mis-categorized an unknown number of coronavirus cases under flu cases during this past season.
In tropical areas, influenza occurs throughout the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, the influenza season typically starts in early fall, peaks in mid-February, and ends in the late spring of the following year. The duration and severity of influenza epidemics vary, however, depending on the virus subtype involved.
In Canada, the just passing 2019-2020 flu season, as of April 4, 2020, there have been 42,475 confirmed cases of influenza. Interestingly, combined, influenza and pneumonia (a common complication of influenza), kills more than 8,000 people a year, but this season, for some reason, nudge-nudge wink-wink, Canada is reporting very low levels of influenza activity. The percentage of tests positive for influenza are at the lowest level recorded for the past nine seasons. This level is usually not seen until mid to late summer. Flu deaths being deemed Covid deaths, to instill even more fear?
Now we have COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 which originated, whether accidentally or intentionally, out of Wuhan, China, in maybe December 2019. And which has shut down economies around the world. With such a disruption that many will not recover from, and the cure may very well kill more than the virus ever will. To-date (May 17th) on the planet, there have been 4.8 million cases of Covid and 316,732 deaths (7%). Global average of 4.6 deaths per 100,000 people. In the hardest hit areas it’s 30 to 50 deaths per 100,000. In Canada it’s 15.3 per 100,000.
Excluding coronaviruses, which as mentioned there has never been a vaccination for, antibiotics do not kill viruses, and have no role in treating influenza in otherwise healthy people, although they may be used to treat complications, such as pneumonia. Much like hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and vitamin C and D are not allowed to be talked about, and if I was on Facebook I’m sure I would be banned for saying such a thing, but they are very good at treating both complications and length of illness from viruses if administered early. But the best vaccination is a healthy immune system. And is why Covid is running rampant, because many people today don’t have a healthy immune system. And why it will be so difficult for herd immunity with everyone self-isolating. In truth, vaccines simply compensate for our worn down immune systems. Is it any wonder the US is getting hit so hard when it is estimated that nearly half their population is obese. A new study by New York University has found that obesity of patients, as determined by their BMI (body mass index) was the single biggest controllable factor, after age, in determining whether those with Covid had to be admitted to a hospital. “The chronic condition with the strongest association with [this] critical illness was obesity, with a substantially higher odds ratio than any cardiovascular or pulmonary disease.” concluded the study. In fact, poor diet is normally the leading cause of mortality in the US, causing more than half a million deaths per year. Obesity is the second most common cause of death from behavioural risks, with some 400,000 people dying each year of obesity-related illness.
The seasonal flu shot is developed at the start of each season to protect from strains of the flu. The influenza vaccine is composed of killed influenza virus strains that were in circulation in the previous year as well as those determined to be a risk for the current year, basically a throw of the dice. The virus is treated in the laboratory so that it will not cause disease, but the body will recognize it as a foreign “invader” and produce antibodies against it. In the US, more than 170 million doses of the flu vaccine have been administered to fight this season’s flu virus.
Antiviral drugs for influenza are an important adjunct to influenza vaccine for the treatment and prevention of influenza. However, they are not a substitute for vaccination. When taken before infection or during early stage of the disease antivirals may help prevent infection, and if infection has already taken hold, their early administration may reduce the duration of symptoms by one to two days.
For several years, amantadine and rimantadinewere were the only antiviral drugs available, and were inexpensive. But these drugs are effective only against type A influenza, and may be associated with severe adverse effects (including delirium and seizures that occur mostly in elderly persons on higher doses). A new class of antivirals, the neuraminidase inhibitors, has been developed. Such drugs, zanamivir and oseltamivir, have fewer adverse side effects (although zanamivir may exacerbate asthma or other chronic lung diseases), and the virus less often develops resistance. However, these drugs are very expensive and may not be available for use in many countries.
As for the latest quest for a Covid vaccine, one must consider that big-Pharma, NIH, CDC, WHO, Bill Gates, Fauci, and the research professionals dependent on grants from these sources, want a vaccine, not a cure. And even though the US has a new “vaccine czar” heading “Operation Warp Speed” which aims to produce 300 million doses of a vaccine by January 2021, it is a goal that’s beyond unrealistic. General Gustave Perna, director of the Army Materiel Command, will serve as chief operating officer while his top advisor is former executive of the previously mentioned Gates’s vaccine ally GSK (one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world and creator of multiple vaccines that have killed thousands) Moncef Slaoui.
Dr. Fauci, of the US coronavirus task force and Bill Gates, estimated a vaccine could arrive in at least 12 to 18 months. A vaccine which will also contain nano-bits that could be controlled by electromagnetic waves (5G) and will allow us to be tracked and monitored, and a way to identify those presumably infected. Such a digital certificate would also verify if you have been vaccinated, and has already been developed by MIT and Microsoft, both as we know, funded by Bill Gates.
This is what will be used to keep the threat of a virus alive, by continuing to kill the immune compromised, or other underlying factors such as diabetes or heart disease or obesity, whether we are weak, poor, homeless, and elderly. Perhaps even affecting our mental health as well. Along with a cocktail of vaccine toxins, such a concoction would undoubtedly have anti-fertility ingredients added as well. Which they have already done to groups of people all over the world. Gates’ “micro-patch” will allow such anti-fertility ability to actually be turned off or on. But how could they get away with this one asks.
Create enough fear where in the rush to save lives a vaccine is created and brought out that has been untested. Because there was no time to. Would we be insane to allow ourselves, or be forced into, getting vaccinated with an untested vaccine? Absolutely. Is even 18 months too quick? Absolutely. But they say that, because their plan was to get us to quarantine ourselves for that long, are they that delusional or so full of themselves? Absolutely, in fact they are being very blatant and open about it. Then in 18 months they’d say it’ll take another 18 months, and so on, and so on. But no matter what they may think, they are not gods unless we allow them to be. And on that point, one must remember history, where violent insurrection most often fails, but non-violent insurrection in the form of non-compliance has worked many times.
In reality, and to-date, a vaccine typically takes 10 to 15 years before it is allowed to be administered to the general public. It is said that even if today’s scientists relied on work that has already been done trying to find a vaccine for SARS and MERS (both caused by coronaviruses), and not waiting for any academic research but skipping right to clinical trials, a vaccine for Covid may take at least ten years. SARS and SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid, are roughly 80 percent identical, and both use so-called spike proteins to grab onto a specific receptor found on cells in human lungs. This may explain how scientists developed a test for Covid so quickly. Even at that, up to now, for many vaccines, clinical trials almost never succeed. In the US less than 10 percent of drugs that enter clinical trials are ever approved by their Food and Drug Administration. The rest fail because they are not effective, don’t perform better than existing drugs or have too many side effects.
There are already at least 254 therapies and 95 vaccines related to Covid being explored. Dozens of vaccines are starting clinical trials, with many of them using experimental RNA and DNA technology, which provides the body with instructions to produce its own antibodies against the virus. And to perhaps do anything else it is programmed to do. And though some biologists have predicted we won’t see a vaccine approved until at least 2021 or 2022, even then they admit, “this is very optimistic and of relatively low probability.” Without short cuts an effective and safe vaccine could take as already stated, nearly ten years.
Besides all that, what if a promising vaccine shows up and actually makes it easier to catch the virus, or makes the disease worse after someone’s infected? That’s been the case for a few HIV drugs and vaccines for dengue fever, because of a process called vaccine-induced enhancement, in which the body reacts unexpectedly and makes the disease more dangerous. After nearly 40 years of work, HIV vaccine efforts have only had a few Phase 3 clinical trials, one of which actually made the disease worse, and another with a success rate of just 30%. Researchers say they don’t expect a successful HIV vaccine until 2030 or later, putting the timeline at around 50 years. As already noted, seventeen years after SARS and seven years since MERS, there is still no vaccine, despite dozens of attempts to develop them.
Covid is now a big business for the pharmaceutical corporations, for bankruptcy lawyers, for the few at the top to buy up all bankrupted businesses, and the medical industry. While all non-essential individuals will be paid to stay at home, and hopefully in front of their TV or staring at their phone. So by all means lets allow a pharmaceutical company to come up with some concoction and force everyone to be vaccinated. Are we that stupid? Really?
Many people are predicting that the US will magically discover a vaccine which will be forced upon their entire population under the threat of arrest, or being forced to submit. The owner of it’s patent will become a trillionaire. Those who resist will be blacklisted as public health criminals and be locked out of society, similar to Chinese citizens suffering under China’s totalitarian social credit system. No doubt, at the same time, key congressmen and government bureaucrats will have invested heavily in the company that developed the cure.
Regardless, as I’ve mentioned a few times over this Timeline, what if I don’t want the vaccine? What if I would rather develop a natural immunity? Or maybe wait for one that is tested, to be safe and effective. Will I become “a bio terrorist germ spreader” if I want to contract the cold or flu and let my body beat it on its own? Will I get a knock on the door, held down and given the vaccine, for my own good and that of the herd? A vaccine which was rushed to market in the hysteria, and not knowing what’s in it, there is a huge possibility that the vaccine would do more harm than good. Will anyone be held responsible if that were to happen? No, one would simply die. Is that the goal? And if we freely give our consent, then no one is accountable, because we are then simply branded cattle and less than human.
May 20th – As noted throughout this Timeline, there have been multiple plans, scenarios, and “war games” played out over the years by governments and non-government organizations. Supposedly to prepare for a crisis, so why is it when one appears, big-government is completely unprepared for it. Before I get into the gist of this article, I must share yet another scenario, which when thought up ten years ago, was either a preparedness plan or another actual game plan. Akin to 9/11, Afghanistan, and the Wars on Drugs, Poverty and Terrorism. Or like all through human history, a war between the power-mad and individual freedom? Whatever the reasoning behind it, it could be held up as a mirror of today.
In 2010, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Global Business Network (GBN), drafted a document entitled “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development”. GBN, a consulting firm (in operation from 1987 to 2013) that specialized in helping “organizations to adapt and grow in an increasingly uncertain and volatile world”, was led by futurist Peter Schwartz. He is best known as the primary author of the discredited 2004 Pentagon Climate Change report that warned that European cities would be underwater and Britain would be a Siberian wasteland by the year 2020.
The 2010 Scenarios for the Future… document outlined four possible future scenarios. Each detailed to either create positive change or massive political violence, that would define future international development strategies, through 2030. The scenarios included “Lock Step”, “Clever Together”, “Hack Attack”, and “Smart Scramble”.
Lock Step, describes “a world of tighter top-down government control and more authoritarian leadership, with limited innovation and growing citizen pushback from a worldwide pandemic leading to international economic failures and ever oppressive authoritarian controls”.
Clever Together, “a world which highly coordinated and successful strategies emerge for addressing both urgent and entrenched worldwide issues.
Hack Attack, an “economically unstable and shock-prone world in which governments weaken, criminals thrive, and dangerous innovations emerge”.
And Smart Scramble, an “economically depressed world in which individuals and communities develop localized, makeshift solutions to a growing set of problems”.

On page 18 of the PDF, the “Lock Step” scenario describes a 2012 pandemic leading to a global economic collapse followed by oppressive authoritarian controls:
“In 2012, the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit. Unlike 2009’s H1N1, this new influenza strain — originating from wild geese — was extremely virulent and deadly. Even the most pandemic-prepared nations were quickly overwhelmed when the virus streaked around the world… The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains. Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months, devoid of both employees and customers…The United States’ initial policy of “strongly discouraging” citizens from flying proved deadly in its leniency, accelerating the spread of the virus not just within the U.S. but across borders. However, a few countries did fare better, China in particular. The Chinese government’s quick imposition and enforcement of mandatory quarantine for all citizens, as well as its instant and near-hermetic sealing off of all borders, saved millions of lives, stopping the spread of the virus far earlier than in other countries and enabling a swifter post-pandemic recovery.
“China’s government was not the only one that took extreme measures to protect its citizens from risk and exposure. During the pandemic, national leaders around the world flexed their authority and imposed airtight rules and restrictions, from the mandatory wearing of face masks to body-temperature checks at the entries to communal spaces like train stations and supermarkets. Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and oversight of citizens and their activities stuck and even intensified. In order to protect themselves from the spread of increasingly global problems, from pandemics and transnational terrorism to environmental crises and rising poverty, leaders around the world took a firmer grip on power.”
“At first, the notion of a more controlled world gained wide acceptance and approval. Citizens willingly gave up some of their sovereignty, and their privacy, to more paternalistic states in exchange for greater safety and stability. Citizens were more tolerant, and even eager, for top-down direction and oversight, and national leaders had more latitude to impose order in the ways they saw fit. In developed countries, this heightened oversight took many forms: biometric IDs for all citizens, for example, and tighter regulation of key industries whose stability was deemed vital to national interests.” Sound familiar? I know, it raised the hairs on the back of my neck too.
Today, or eerily as above, no matter what happened in China, it cannot explain what happened afterwards in the West, namely the great fear, disproportionate to the gravity of the events, while the governments were initially inactive compared to what China promptly undertook. Most Chinese, and even South Korean citizens didn’t fear infection but the government, public shaming, and being “disappeared”. And is why many Asian peoples are very risk averse. In China the government has full control or “full spectrum dominance”, so whatever their actions and orders were they were obeyed or you would simply disappear. The West did not have such, forced through fear, loyalty, patriotism and obedience yet, though they were close, and the powers that be knew it. So using a very real coronavirus, they made up incorrect and fraudulent statistics, so as to create the panic needed to achieve “full spectrum dominance” of it’s citizenry, just like the Chinese have.
One thing about the US, whenever there is a crisis they always panic and overreact. And though changes do occur, they are but side effects of that panic. Winston Churchill famously noted that “Americans will always do the right thing, after exhausting all the alternatives.” While the Russians have always said about the US, “Americans feel that if it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.” The difference this time is the US is not as united as it once was, they have lost their industrial strength, and their global empire, and simply refuse to admit it. And the only people panicking are the citizens, while those pulling the strings and pulling the levers behind the curtain are simply working their agendas quicker than they themselves thought possible.
The elite’s ideals were to have their Agendas 21 and 2030 in place by 2030, but climate change hysteria was taking too long and becoming farcical. Then a virus came along and they found how easy it was, and how swiftly, the Western world would accept a socialist authoritarian state. With the military and police prepared and at the ready to quell any uprisings. This is why the US will prove to be a bloody nut to crack, because at the least they are able to defend themselves. But in reality such a socialist global state has been worked on and implemented over the past 50 years. Drip by drip by drip. Today both individuals and corporations are relying on big-government handouts and bailouts to “save” them. There will soon be one global currency (no more cash) used through your smartphone or embedded computer chip in either one’s neck or wrist, and one central unelected ruling body. And the thing is, we have known this for far longer than we care to admit. We’ve been watching movies and reading books about it for decades. And that such cognitive dissonance has been eating away at our mental health and well being for just as long.
In one fell swoop (several months), the global economy has ground to a halt; stock markets have crashed 30-50%, credit markets have frozen, commodities tanked, trillions of dollars created out of thin air, the bottom 90% of citizens unable to be consumers anymore, because they are broke and very afraid. Bankruptcies and bailouts, massive unemployment and worldwide GDP cratered. Strict social distancing measures, mass quarantines, and travel bans across the world to combat the fast-spreading Covid outbreak. At this very moment, more than a billion people are confined to their homes, some of the largest factory hubs are shuttered, and education systems are closed indefinitely. All because four of every 100,000 people on the planet died from a virus. A virus that attacked mostly 80 year olds, who were in many cases were already dieing. Their, most often, weakened immune systems busy fighting off heart disease or cancer. Then, this virus came along. It could have been any flu virus or even seasonal cold, for that matter, but their immune systems were overwhelmed and their heart finally gave out, or their kidneys shut down, or their inflamed lungs starved them of oxygen, or the cancer had spread too far. Globally the number of people who have died of, or with, Covid, in the past four and a half months is the same number of people who die every five days from cardiovascular diseases.
What happened to our “flattening the curve” by rational social distancing, quarantining the elderly and compromised, and reaching herd immunity, which are really, our only options. Thrown out the window I suppose, along with our personal sovereignty, and instead wait indoors for a cure that may never arrive, while we lose our minds, basic social needs, and our souls.
So far, globally, there has supposedly been 324,958 Covid deaths, or 0.00004% of the planet’s population. With the overwhelming majority elderly people like me, who died while dieing.
Nearly 30% of all deaths in the world attributed to Covid have been in the US. And of those deaths 30% were in New York. To-date there have been 164,574 deaths in Europe; 106,283 in North America (5,912 in Canada/ Mexico 5,666 and climbing); 25,547 deaths in Asia, the majority by far in Iran, China, Turkey and India; 25,493 in South America (mostly all in Brazil); 2,925 deaths in Africa, the vast majority in Egypt, Algeria, and South Africa; and 121 deaths in Oceania (100 in Australia/ 21 in new Zealand), while the many island nations of the South Pacific were already isolated. As for testing, Russia has tested nearly 7.5 million of their citizens, more than the next two highest testers, Germany and Italy, combined.
May 23rd – Released late Friday (May 22nd). According to a pivotal study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the drug remdesivir, the “saviour snake-oil” a few weeks ago, and which was authorized to treat Covid in a group of 1063 adults and children (split into two groups, one receiving placebo instead of remdesivir) who need i) supplemental oxygen, ii) a ventilator or iii) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), only significantly helped those on supplemental oxygen. There was no marked benefit from remdesivir for those who were healthier and didn’t need oxygen or those who were sicker, requiring a ventilator or a heart-lung bypass machine.
A new report by Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF) and the Institute for Policy Studies, showed that the fortunes of the 600+ billionaires in the world soared by $434 billion or 15% during the Covid lock-down between mid-March and mid-May. The billionaires’ combined net worth rose from $2.9 trillion to $3.4 trillion. The top five US billionaires—Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett and Larry Ellison—saw their wealth grow by a total of $75.5 billion, or 19%. Together they captured 21% of the total wealth growth of all 600-plus billionaires in the last two months. The fortunes of Amazon’s Bezos and Facebook’s Zuckerberg together grew by nearly $60 billion, or 14% of the $434 billion total. In March there were 614 billionaires on the Forbes list, and 630 two months later, including newcomer Kanye West at $1.3 billion. Tesla’s Elon Musk had among the largest percentage gain of billionaires during the two months, seeing his net worth jump by 48% in the period to $36 billion. The report noted that during that same approximate period, more than 38 million working Americans lost their jobs (more than the Great Depression), nearly 1.5 million Americans got infected with the virus and more than 90,000 died.
Esteemed words from the great Dr Donald A. Henderson (1928-2016), who is credited with smallpox eradication, in a 2006 co-authored report, “Disease Mitigation Measures in the Control of Pandemic Influenza”: “The interest in quarantine reflects the views and conditions prevalent more than 50 years ago, when much less was known about the epidemiology of infectious diseases and when there was far less international and domestic travel in a less densely populated world. It is difficult to identify circumstances in the past half-century when large-scale quarantine has been effectively used in the control of any disease. The negative consequences of large-scale quarantine are so extreme(forced confinement of sick people with the well; complete restriction of movement of large populations; difficulty in getting critical supplies, medicines, and food to people inside the quarantine zone) that this mitigation measure should be eliminated from serious consideration.”
As real data and evidence comes flowing in, its showing that the overwhelming majority of the public were never at any serious risk of dying from Covid. In Europe, the UK, Canada, and in the US, the overwhelming majority of Covid fatalities have been with elderly persons (avg. age 82 yrs), and within that demographic nearly all have been from care homes. A new report citing Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Theresa Tam, confirms that among Canada’s coronavirus fatalities, 81% were in nursing homes, affecting the elderly with long-term chronic health conditions. This rate is nearly double the rate of that in the US as a whole, but is comparable to data from some individual states including two ‘hot spots’ in the US, Washington state and New York State. While more than half of all deaths in 14 US states were from elderly care facilities. Similarly, countries like Scotland saw half of all deaths from care homes. No doubt contributing factors are cramped buildings and employees doing part-time shifts and then travelling between several care facilities in order to make a living.
Canada’s part in perhaps the largest psychological operation (PSYOP) in the history of mankind. Bigger than even Osama bin Laden, Barrack Hussein Obama or Joe Biden. Is to shut things down and spend money future generations will now not have, because (as of may 22nd) 82,480 Canadians have been affected with the Covid, with 6,250 deaths. The deaths all sad, but represent a “staggering” 0.0001% of the population. With 90% of these deaths people over 60 years of age, which means our leaders shut it all down because 625 Canadians under the age of 60 years died. (0.00001% of the population). Indeed, Elvis has left the building.
Here in beautiful BC there have been 2,507 people confirmed infected, with 155 deaths (0.00003%). Meaning 15 people under the age of 60 (maybe) died due to Covid (0.000003% of the BC population) Not being callous in anyway, but “staggering”?, I would think not.
So much for shutting down schools, public parks, playgrounds, the economy, and other far-ranging lock-down policies, to keep healthy people cowering in fear “self-isolating” at home, with unemployment insurance paying them more than when they were working, while their jobs livelihoods and freedoms go down the drain.
As for the promise of a vaccine, and then mandatory inoculation, the world as we know it is on the edge and could go either way, considering the latest polls show that about half of Americans would refuse to take it, while the other half are willing to continue being isolated for however long their government tells them, for a vaccine that may never come. It’s worse in Canada, a poll recently revealed that 60% of Canadians think that when a vaccine for the Covid becomes available it should be made mandatory. It shivers my timbers. Especially when the best thing we can do to ward off such a virus is to use a healthy robust immune system to do the job it was evolved to do. But that is a bridge too far for many people, who unfortunately, seem to prefer whatever is easy, dopamine short, and quick, and of course, whatever is free.
Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, holds four degrees from MIT, and is a world-renowned systems scientist, inventor and entrepreneur. He is an immune specialist, among other things, and describes whats going on very well. Have been following him for the past few months and surprised he hasn’t been banned yet. But then he is running as a Republican in the 2020 U.S. Senate election in Massachusetts, so that day may come. The video is only 10 minutes long of mostly common sense and reality in this “crisis”. The reply from m’lady, a former medical adjudicator and nurse, after sending her the link was, “His talk was so refreshing and straight. We need more of that as it bolsters the feeling of confidence and common sense for what we already know.”
Finally, here in Canada, our national parks, mostly either forests or beaches, were closed but have now reopened. But only during daylight hours. Too funny. I suppose if one entered a forest to go on a hike, the Covid may drop from branches as they walk by, or get kicked up on the dirt path and somehow make their way up to our faces. The beach would be a death trap, with all that sand being kicked up and clouds of Covid rising up from it like an invisible fog, let alone the Covid blowing in with the waves and wind. And then have to put up with one’s body absorbing too much vitamin D from the sun’s rays, which inhibits the virus, while the sun’s rays kill Covid droplets in a couple of minutes. At night it could be even worse. In the forest the Covid could drop from the trees like dew or even emanate from any moss clinging about. In the dark you could accidentally kick over a Covid hive and you’d get swarmed, like bees, but totally oblivious to it. And then of course, leaving the forest or beach and getting into a car. Where the chances of you perhaps getting hurt in an accident is thousands of times higher than inhaling a Covid droplet that can’t fly.
May 27th : The South China Morning Post reported that a new study, The ORF8 Protein of SARS-CoV-2 Mediates Immune Evasion through Potently Down-regulating MHC-I, (read it quick before it’s banned) by Chinese scientists has found that the Covid uses the same strategy to evade attack from the human immune system as HIV. So perhaps the earlier suggestions in this Timeline, where Covid was weaponized with the insertion of a couple of HIV molecules to make it so it’d be around for awhile, and go on killing like HIV-AIDS does, attacking the immune system and causing it to overreact is more correct than not. But one can ask, is Covid an airborne AIDS?
The report shows “Earlier studies found the spike protein of the new coronavirus had a structure that allowed it to enter many types of human cells and bind with them. The same structure was also found in HIV, but not in other coronaviruses found in animals such as bats and pangolins.” Another study by researchers in New York and Shanghai confirm this by finding that Sars-CoV-2 kills T cells, just like HIV. And also found that “the coronavirus not only shares genetic material with HIV, but also evades and cripples the immune system in a similar way to HIV.”
The CDC just came out with a report that instead of the fear-mongering WHO’s estimate of Covid’s death rate as being 3.4% which drove panic in the streets and governments alike, estimate a 0.4% fatality rate among those who are symptomatic and project a 35% rate of asymptomatic cases among those infected, which drops the overall infection fatality rate (IFR) to just 0.26%. This is exactly what Stanford researchers found out a month ago.
Four infectious disease doctors in Canada estimate that the individual rate of death from Covid for people under 65 years of age is six per million people, or 0.0006 per cent or 1 in 166,666, which is “roughly equivalent to the risk of dying from a motor vehicle accident during the same time period.” These numbers are for Canada, which did have fewer deaths per capita than the US. But if you take New York state out of the equation, the two countries are pretty much the same. The CDC estimates the death rate from Covid for those under 50 is 1 in 5,000 for those with symptoms, which would be 1 in 6,725 overall, but again, almost all those who die have specific comorbidities or underlying conditions. Infected people without underlying conditions are more likely to die in a car accident. And schoolchildren, whose lives, mental health, and education we are destroying, are more likely to get struck by lightning than catching the Covid.
Here in BC, to-date there have been 161 deaths due to Covid. Meanwhile, since January there have been 382 deaths by overdose.
Besides the fact that 99.9% of people who get Covid, will not die, nearly all those who were deemed to have died of Covid had underlying conditions, and nearly all over the age of 55 years. Now consider that perhaps as many as 80% of all Covid deaths occurred in either, a more often than not, industrially run care home, where the elderly are treated and cared for as though they are less than human, or an industrially run chicken or beef processing plant. Where the workers are working shoulder to shoulder handling meat that is saturated with antibiotics, growth hormones, and bacteria, in a cool to cold environment. Producing chicken nuggets consisting of nearly all parts of the chicken simply ground up, to beef patties that have been proven to consist of meat from over two hundred cows. At the same time many of these workers are migrants, eating poor diets, with a dozen of them all crammed into maybe a three bedroom apartment living cheek to cheek. So what lessons should be learned here?
House Cats love being locked down. Lazing in the sun. Often overweight, cowering in fear and hiding under the bed. Much of the day licking themselves and staring out the window watching the world go by. They’re usually loners with not many friends, and while they are housed, fed, combed and caressed, they show no gratitude. They like government intervention in their lives, to provide such things. Loudly purring and rubbing up against the leg of officials who create money out of thin air and provide such benefits free of charge. They feel taken care of, almost diva-like. And though they seem to enjoy being told what they can and cannot do, they also believe they are above others, a false sense of self-esteem because it has been given instead of earned. And that everyone should feel and act the same. As they slowly strut about with lion-like arrogance.
Human beings on the other hand think that everyone should be free to make their own decisions. As long as they don’t endanger or infringe upon others. Anyone who wants to stay home can stay home, nothing wrong with that. They understand that the world is a scary place, that there are risks, but they’re still willing to live their lives. Besides, it’s not about taking unnecessary risks or being reckless and stupid, they just want to be treated like human beings who are free to make their own decisions, without over-reaching authorities making them for them.
In the US, their citizens believe they are born in freedom, “endowed by their creator with inalienable rights, and living in a country birthed out of a revolutionary struggle for individual liberty.” And yet they seem to have no rights to economic freedom, to bodily integrity, or to refuse to comply with a government order with which they disagree. Like a vaccination. For years, in the US, and here in Canada with our Charter of Rights, and elsewhere, we have been mostly passive participants, an audience as it were. We all had basic rights like the most important, free speech, then, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, the right to assemble, and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. We also held rights that protected us from unlawful searches and seizures. That the police can’t search you or your house without a warrant or probable cause. This no longer seems the case, but only seems that way because we are allowing it. “Governments may try to reduce such basic rights, it may refuse to recognize them, it may even attempt to declare martial law and nullify them, but it cannot litigate, legislate or forcefully eradicate them out of existence.” The inattention and inaction to what has been going on for over thirty years blows my mind. As does how many people have accepted the slow methodical rise of totalitarianism.
Today, even here in Victoria BC, I must live my life keeping what I really feel about what is going on today, very close to the chest. For if shared, only creates vitriolic rage from people spewing verbatim what the the mainstream media and the herd told them to say. The scariest part is often, they themselves don’t really believe what they are saying, they are just speaking out of fear. Its like back in the 50’s and 60’s and watching the confrontations against African Americans on TV, where the anger, fear and rage in the mostly Democratic, white American’s faces as they spat on, shouted at, and assaulted blacks, whether children or adult, was sheer ugly and disturbing. Just because some fellow Americans didn’t want to be treated any different, but instead simply wanted to be treated the same. Shame on us then. Shame on us now.
Article by Jeffrey A. Tucker (May 19th 2020) American Institute for Economic Research. “Did the lock-down save lives? It’s possible but not yet proven, and the evidence so far points to a negative answer. No matter how much we try to spin this in our heads, no matter how much we want to believe that something good has come out of this catastrophe, we are all going to have someday to deal with the terrible but likely reality that it was all for naught.”

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.” John F. Kennedy
The Covid: governments panicked, people panicked period. Big-Pharma backed epidemiologists felt they had to scare us to get us into agreeing to locking down and social distancing. They stood up and said it will kill tens of millions! Meaning it could then make them hundreds of million of dollars. Then, when it is showing, at least at this time, that deaths may plateau around 500,000 souls or 0.00006% of the global population, they pat themselves on the back and say “see it’s good you listened to our advice”. Even though they did it by stroking fear and anxiety. They used the same tactics the tobacco companies came up with back in the 1950’s, where factual science can be construed as having two sides. With mainstream corporate media complicit just as they are today. And since everything is cause and effect. Where do we now stand?
Here in Canada, we are left with an unresolved coronavirus pandemic, millions unemployed, thousands of small businesses never reopening, societal despair, economic collapse, and further loss of personal freedoms, privacy, critical thinking, and mental health. And though we have our own issues, such as being run by the globalists more than the US is, the fear for us Canadians is not so much a severe and extended flu season, or any of the above so much, it is becoming more the worry of our southern neighbour. And the fact we share an unprotected border with them.
Besides all the above, in the US, with 5% of the world’s population, they have suffered about 30% of Covid deaths, mostly their elderly. Tens of millions unemployed, the numbers now higher than it was during the Great Depression. Perhaps 40,000 small businesses will disappear. The Disaster Distress Helpline, a federal suicide prevention crisis hot-line, received almost 900% more phone calls in March compared to a year ago. A California health organization recently estimated that more than 75,000 Americans could die from “despair” as a result of the pandemic, unemployment, and government restrictions. A doctor at a hospital in California admitted “We’ve never seen numbers like this, in such a short period of time, I mean we’ve seen a year’s worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks.” A report from a Florida-based network of addiction treatment facilities, reflect an “expected” increase in substance use during the pandemic, with Americans reporting a 55% rise in alcohol consumption in the last month. When it came to illicit drugs, 36% of Americans reported increased use of marijuana and prescription opioids, among others. Overdoses, already at the highest levels ever, are quickly climbing even higher. All the while the nation was divided in as many ways as mainstream media could pull off. With Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, Hollywood, YouTube, Google, et al, doing the population’s critical thinking for them.
Add to the mix, an arrogant and blatantly corrupt deep state, residing on both sides of the aisle, who looted their Treasury, passing such things as “The Care Act” to deal with the Covid crisis, but instead used it for the largest wealth transfer in US history. Passing out $5 trillion and climbing, to their corporate sponsors, those at the top. The billionaires alone are $435 billion richer. Just like back in 2008 when they bailed out the banks, this time the airline industry got over $50 billion, the real estate and oil industry billions, the wealthiest hospitals billions in bailouts for struggling nurses and doctors, firms that left the US are now able to cut taxes so that they can now qualify for federal aid, the richest Americans received “stimulus checks” averaging $1.7 million, and the tens of millions on unemployment insurance making $600 more a week, though this is scheduled to end July 1st. Millionaires also reaped 80% of tax benefits, and avoided $82 billion in tax liability. Hedge fund investors and real estate owners benefited the most. Even lobbying groups got billions in “bailouts”.
Besides all that, they’ve gone through a failed coup attempt against a sitting president, and have a militarized police force whose members are far too often either power trippers, adrenaline junkies, and mentally damaged veterans. The good ones either eventually leaving after a few years or they become a part of the machine. Many of them perhaps attracted to the job because of the power of having a gun on their hip. They are then taught to shoot first and ask questions later. And yes like many other people, some are racists. Doing a job with zero accountability and power that must not be questioned, with no remorse, or sleepless nights. Ask a cop if they like their job, in most all cases they will say that they “love their job!”
Which brings us to events in the US over the past few days. Being locked down for nearly three months now, American’s livelihoods, freedoms and rights, and mental well-being, are eroding before their very eyes. With the majority of the unemployed, lower income earners who lost a job which might have been their only purpose and meaning in life. As for what the typical American thought their country was all about; self-reliance, personal responsibility, industriousness, thrift, and pulling your self up by your bootstraps, has been thrown out the window, and they are imploding as a nation.
Americans (and Canadians) have also been bombarded by endless coverage of this pandemic and now these riots, by the mainstream media, stoking fear and anxiety. According to Comcast, the average US household has been watching 66 hours of TV a week during Covid, up from 57 hours a week in early March. An extra eight-plus hours of TV each week or the usual time spent on a full days’ work shift. Bizarrely, 66% are watching and consuming more news than ever before, even though 68% also admitted that Covid coverage gives them considerable anxiety. Isn’t cognitive dissonance wonderful? The poll also showed 65% said they feel overwhelmed by coronavirus news, 56% just get plain angry, 67% feel burnt out, 59% experience fearfulness, and 50% can’t help but feel hopeless after hearing the nightly news. Watching endless hours of television, allowing the corporate elite to feed you hour after hour of “programming” is one of the worst possible things that you can do for your mental well-being. “If you put garbage into your mind, you are going to get garbage out.” Personally, I can tell if I’m talking to someone who watches too much TV, their voice rises, they become more animated, stressed and even angry. Simply repeating what they heard and saw on TV and then acting it out emotionally. Many times counter to what they really think and feel. If they only stopped and took a few deep breathes and stop watching the news. In such cases I watch what I say. But if I get tired of it, all one has to do is say what you feel in ten words or less, and the other person’s head explodes. This is how fragile people have become.
As mentioned earlier in Timeline, the DNC and it’s ally China, elite-globalists, and big-Pharma’s, plans could go either way. It’s all up to who wins this years presidential election. Bailing out the banks by Obama in 2008, implementing Agenda 21, then selling the country’s soul, manufacturing facilities, intellectual property, and jobs to China was working well. Then 2016 came along. And it was orange man bad, Russia-Russia-Russia, Ukrainegate, impeachment, then a Covid pandemic, and an economic collapse, none of which were working because they weren’t true. But repeated enough on mainstream news that it became true to some people. With the Covid narrative and Obamagate slowly being exposed, something had to be done, and now there’s riots in the streets. Which I don’t think has anything to do with race. But instead another murder by cop, which happens everyday and must stop, and this time used as cover by deep state actors and the DNC’s military wing, Antifa, to create further chaos. Grinding it all to dust so that they may arise like a phoenix with total control of whoever is left. All being cheered on by the corporate media, corporations, and the liberal establishment, whose four years of propaganda is finally paying off for them. The same social justice warriors, and college students trying to shut down free speech the past four years are once again being used to incite violence to further a preexisting agenda of the elites for greater control over the populace and the economy. Just like African Americans are once again being used as tools by the DNC in order to “delegitimatize Trump and, more importantly, everyone who voted for him, as a bunch of white supremacists and racists.” As brilliant satirist and self-appointed political pundit, CJ Hopkins argues, “America is still a racist country, but America is no more racist today than it was when Barack Obama was president. A lot of American police are brutal, but no more brutal than when Obama was president. America didn’t radically change the day Donald Trump was sworn into office. All that has changed is the official narrative. And it will change back as soon as Trump is gone and the ruling classes have no further use for it. And that will be the end of the War on Populism, and we will switch back to the War on Terror, or maybe the Brave New Pathologized Normal … or whatever Orwellian official narrative the folks at GloboCap (Global Capitalism) have in store for us.”
Of course, if the DNC doesn’t get elected, their grand plan may never be finalized. So they will fight tooth and nail, and do whatever it takes for that not to happen. No longer caring if they are now being exposed, which they are, or how many dead bodies it’ll take to get there. Because half the country gladly took the blue pill and became divided, even with themselves, while those who took the red pill are being silenced at an ever quickening pace, but will be able to stand together with other like-minded individuals and protect their homes and families, because they are armed, prepared and have faith in themselves. That’s the thing with taking the red pill, once you have, a clarity forms in your conscious, and what was hidden is now transparent and very obvious. Where you are no longer in fear of anything, but appreciate each moment, because you have a clear mind, are rational and adept at critical thinking, and know anything good in life, including love, has risk thus, one is filled with an inner confidence.
Parting remark. One must remember, at the human level, this whole thing about “feeling good for oneself” is indeed ideal. But only if you earn it. Through hard work, sacrifice or discipline. Respect for oneself or others is not given, it is an earned thing. We have forgotten such things. We’ve got a couple of generations of people who have been given free housing, free food, and free self-esteem, without them having to earn it. Which has evolved in a very vitriolic me me me attitude. Basically a spoiled brat. Everything that happens to them is somebody else’s fault. No more accountability. It has been drilled into their heads that they are “special”, that they shouldn’t let anyone tell them what to do, instead do what they want to do, “Just do it!”, and that only their opinion matters. And it’s not working out very well for them. Woe is I.
June 8th: The coronavirus appears. “Experts” predict millions will die. Governments in many countries, and not the virus, ordered stores and other businesses to shut-down and people to stay home. The result, a complete breakdown of the economic system. Hundreds of millions of people were thrown into outright despair; in India alone 120 million workers lost their jobs in April 2020. Certainly there were many vulnerable groups, and many died of complications from disease, just as many died during the pandemics of 1958 and 1969. But there’s a difference between a spike in total deaths and a civilization-stopping plague, like we were being told. Lock-down except for prisoners of course. Lock-down or die! Everyone countered the benefits but no one calculated the costs. Mainstream media drove up the frenzy and fear so much that world leaders actually fell for it. Three weeks ago it was arresting and/or fining people for bringing their kids to a playground or cutting someone’s hair (while wearing masks) or praying together while keeping social distancing. Anyone out and about and living life, where even by keeping their distance would be ratted out by their neighbours for being “vicious ignorant disease spreaders” who were denying “science”.
The lock-downs initially were imposed with very little resistance, because corporate mainstream media and government bureaucrats managed to convince a sizable portion of the public that virtually everyone was in grave danger of death or serious disability from Covid. Many people believed these experts. Many still do. By May, however, it had become clear that the doomsday scenarios predicted by the official technocrats had greatly overstated the reality.
Lock-down advocates have declared all of this to be “worth it” and demanded that their ideological opponents just shut up and “#stayhome.” When people began to push against the lock-down, the pro-lock-down Left opposed such protests, which were seen as a Right-wing phenomenon. But now that the latest Black Lives Matter protests and riots are favoured by the Left, then it’s all perfectly fine “beyond a handful of politely expressed concerns” that protesting and rioting might spread disease.
“The social distancing, lock downs and mask-wearing short circuited people’s sanity and put them into hyper-emotional states, making them susceptible to a much more insidious virus, that of the mind. Those who fell for Covid continue to defend mask-wearing and social distancing even though the virus is burning out. Because they are invested in their position emotionally, not logically. Now everyone is properly confused between peacefully protesting but not social distancing. So they show up in masks to virtue signal about Covid while the masked looters and instigators incite insurrection and violence to destabilize further already fragile and overwhelmed public infrastructure.”
The wealthy nihilists, the upper classes, the super wealthy who control the financial institutions, Wall Street, the intelligence agencies, the corporate media, the internet, the military, and the politicians, are multinational, bipartisan, and don’t give a rats ass to you or me. Where they make their money is through war, preparations for war, and economic exploitation of the world. Since Covid wasn’t working they are now using race fears to create chaos and outrage to disguise their class warfare that is leading to the imposition of martial law. They are always waging class warfare to maintain their domination and control. Their recent version of this class war was Covid, where everyone cowered in fear at home while their economic lives were destroyed. But Covid didn’t kill as many as they hoped it would have, and the numbers are showing that each new strain since the beginning is weaker and weaker.
Dr. Donald Yealy, the chair of emergency medicine at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center says that fewer people are testing positive for the virus and those who test positive don’t seem to be getting as sick. “All signs that we have available right now show that this virus is less prevalent than it was weeks ago,” he said, according to PennLive. “Among people who test positive, the total amount of the virus the patient has is much less than in the earlier stages of the pandemic.”
Now its Black Lives Matter, and if I feel it should be All Lives Matter I am deemed a racist. I will also be deemed a racist if I say I am anti-racist, heck, because I question the official narrative I am also a racist.
Being ignored by the Black Lives Matter crowd, besides the fact the vast majority of violent deaths of blacks are by other blacks, is the now weekly reality of dozens tragically dying in black-on-black crime in Chicago and other large cities (a trend that tends to increase into the hot summer months). Case in point, the same Memorial Day weekend that George Floyd was heinously killed by police in Minnesota, Chicago had witnessed nearly 50 people shot in one of the city’s deadliest ever holiday weekends (where ten died from their wounds, including teens). Then just this past weekend, a week later, the same black on black gang-related violence killed another three people, with 28 injured. Meanwhile, the Chicago Mayor told her citizens to not use guns to defend themselves during riots and urges them to call police instead. Out of the other side of her mouth she talks about de-funding the police. If it’s chaos they want, chaos they will get.
In 1965, Daniel Patrick Moynihan published his report “The Negro Family: The Case For National Action”, where he saw that African American households were 25% single mothers, which was a “frightening” statistic at the time. Since then, Jim Crow laws and Red Lining (the systematic denial of various services by federal government agencies, local governments as well as the private sector, to residents of specific neighbourhoods or communities, either directly or through the selective raising of prices) have all been removed from the books, Martin Luther King Jr. and The Civil Rights Movement made tremendous strides and there has even been a black two-term president. Many cities are run by black mayors, police chiefs, and district attorneys, over 20% of many police forces are black, yet year by year, social dysfunction has only gotten worse. The result, today 75% of black households are being raised by a single-mother.
“Now you tell me, which is the better explanation for young black children ending up in a life of crime – the lack of a father figure, or the mythical, non-explainable entity known only as “institutional racism”, which for some reasons doesn’t apply to Nigerian immigrants, to black immigrants from West Indies, to Indian people, to Jewish people, to Asian Americans…” The rioting, destroying businesses that were just preparing to reopen after being shut down, and defacing monuments to Mahatma Gandhi and Abraham Lincoln, who were both assassinated for their beliefs, shows their ignorance. The rioters are also a very small minority but get all the airtime. Any good will that Black Lives Matter had with working class white and Hispanic Americans is gone. These people don’t want this chaos. And they are the vast majority of voters. It’s pathetic, but what do you expect from “an infantilized society brought up to believe the Magic Money Tree can absolve us of the responsibility of our mistakes.” But it may be the 70 million people to date that watched Candace Owens own the bully pulpit surrounding the hypocrisy of George Floyd’s murder that now has them in a real panic.
As Ms Owens correctly states, putting aside the fact George Floyd was brutally killed by a psychopathic bad cop, he was high on meth and fentanyl, trying to pass a forged bill, and driving a car. He had a long rap sheet, with numerous 10 month stints in prison for drug possession, and in 2004 broke into a black pregnant woman’s home, who also had a one year old, and held a gun to her belly to get her and her infant to comply so that he could ransack the place looking for drugs and money. He found none, but undoubtedly traumatized the young family. He was quickly apprehended and got five years in prison, and now today that woman and her now fifteen and sixteen year old children have to watch mainstream news and Black Lives Matter proclaim Floyd as another Martin Luther King.
A letter was drafted by 1,200 infectious disease “experts” at the University of Washington, and the IHME (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation), which have both been integral in studying the coronavirus in the US, and as earlier mentioned, both are sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The letter asserts that Black Lives Matter mass gatherings should be encouraged because “white supremacy” is a bigger health threat than Covid. And that “White supremacy is a lethal public health issue that predates and contributes to Covid,” before adding, “Black people are twice as likely to be killed by police compared to white people, but the effects of racism are far more pervasive,” (a claim which is completely misleading given that black people are far likelier to be involved in violent confrontations with police). Then there is the fact that in the US in 2019, nine unarmed black men and one unarmed black woman were killed by a cop. Proving that the Covid wasn’t much of a threat, these same “experts” who warned that hospitals would be overwhelmed and millions would die only a few months ago, now assert that “Covid isn’t a threat, so long as people are protesting against racism, which is a bigger threat”. Which is a crazy assertion that sounds like it came straight from a far-left protest group or something.
The letter goes on to say, “As public health advocates, we do not condemn these gatherings as risky for Covid transmission. We support them as vital to the national public health and to the threatened health specifically of Black people in the United States.” They also claim that ‘stay-at-home’ protests shouldn’t be treated the same because they “not only oppose public health interventions, but are also rooted in white nationalism and run contrary to respect for Black lives.” They go on to assert that Black Lives Matters protesters shouldn’t be arrested, shouldn’t be held in vans and that tear gas shouldn’t be used against them due to the threat of it exacerbating symptoms of people infected with Covid.” And that facemasks should be “celebrated and not seen as an easy way for criminals and looters to hide their identity.” The letter simply another feelings over facts moment.
In the space of 10 days, leftists and even public health officials have gone from demanding police arrest ‘stay-at-home’ protesters for the crime of gathering outside, to demanding the abolition of police and encouraging mass gatherings of people outside. Besides certain other legitimate reasons, I do believe the greatest thing that can happen with police forces is that they all wear body-cams, which are legally not allowed to be shut off, and to get rid of their insidious “qualified immunity”. They abuse their authority we should be able to sue them and if they break the law they go to jail, just like the rest of us.
Rationalizing the flip-flop this week was none other than Obama admin CDC Director Tom Frieden, who said in a Tuesday tweet that “The threat to Covid control from protesting outside is tiny compared to the threat to Covid control created when governments act in ways that lose community trust. People can protest peacefully and work together to stop Covid. Violence harms public health.” Yet, six days earlier Frieden tweeted “Gatherings such as the one at this rural Arkansas church can be fatal and social distancing life-saving.” Frieden was backed by Johns Hopkins Associate Professor Dr. Jennifer Nuzzo, whose Twitter timeline is vitriolic anti-Trump, “We should always evaluate the risks and benefits of efforts to control the virus. In this moment the public health risks of not protesting to demand an end to systemic racism greatly exceed the harms of the virus.”
Another flip-flop, this time from the WHO, where once telling us that the virus could spread via person-to-person contact, even if the carrier didn’t have symptoms. Today (June 8th) they announced that in fact, “From the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual,” Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, head of WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit, said during a Monday briefing from the WHO’s Geneva headquarters. “It’s very rare.”
Of course, if scientists continue to see data showing asymptomatic spread isn’t a main factor in transmission, it could have dramatic implications for containment policy, including diminishing the need for social distancing, and allowing students and workers to return to the workplace in much larger numbers. The house of cards the WHO and others have built is slowly falling apart.
As for us 870,000 Vancouver Islanders, Island Health has reported that a total of 130 people (.00014% of the pop.) had Covid, five (.0000057% of pop.) have died and 125 recovered, leaving no active cases. Today there are no current cases of Covid on the island and no one on the island currently in a hospital because of it. Richmond has had zero cases of Covid for three weeks now. In fact there are no cases outside Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. The majority of infections came from Europe and neighbouring Washington State. The province now has a total of 2,632 cases of Covid, while 2,265 people have recovered. B.C. has recorded only 166 deaths. While our schools and many small businesses are still shut-down. Even though schools and day-cares in Denmark, Austria, Norway, Finland, and Germany, have been operating for one to two months with no issue whatsoever about the virus. Professor Herman Goossens, a medical microbiologist, and coordinator of the European Union, said the main reason for no outbreaks at schools is because children have fewer ACE2 receptors the virus uses to enter the body. Goossens said data from around the world showed children accounted for less than 1% of total infections.
In the US, and Canada, when schools do open the CDC has ordered the children and staff to follow their new guidelines. Besides these guidelines there will likely still be fire and shooter drills and armed guards roaming the perimeter. And that climate change will kill them all by 2030. The guidelines include, face coverings for all staff – encouraged for students. Cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces daily. Restrictions on mixing of students. Keeping the same groups of students with the same staff members, as much as possible. Cancelling of all field trips, events, and extracurricular activities. No sports. Desks 6 ft apart, facing the same direction. No more lunch rooms. Any meals (must be pre-packaged) eaten will be in classroom. School buses – one student every other row. Many schools will need three to four more buses to every one used before. No sharing of objects. Daily health screenings such as temperature check.
Final thought about vaccinations. Since I will not be vaccinated, I must ask, How can a person that is not vaccinated “harm” people that are vaccinated? If the vaccine actually works, then vaccinated people are safe from infection, aren’t they? So, the only person “at risk” is the person that chose not to vaccinate. This comes down to personal choice, there is no question of “the greater good” or social risk. Its amazing that people like Bill Gates, argue fervently in favour of forced vaccinations, also tend to be the same people that argue in favour of abortion rights. So, if indeed it is “my body my choice” when it comes to women ending the lives of unborn children, how is it that “my body my choice” is not acceptable when it comes to mass vaccinations even though a person not vaccinated is a threat to no one.
In a few days the scene will shift and we can expect another “bombshell event”. Surprises will keep happening one after another for the foreseeable future. “Shock and Awe for the home crowd. Soon they will shift back to the coronavirus fraud in the fall. Back and forth, in and out, now you see it, now you don’t.”
People must be made to understand the reality of our situation: the economy has already been undermined and this threat is far greater than either the virus or the riots. This is the danger that is being hidden by the pandemic and civil unrest distractions, and it is a threat that the government has no means or intention of saving us from. We must save ourselves, and doing that requires preparation and acceptance that the world is changed.
This will be my final posting of the Covid Timeline. Mostly because the Covid isn’t the cause of today’s turmoil and never was.
For those who have followed the Timeline I thank so very much. For those who dropped in and were triggered and felt it all offensive, you haven’t seen anything yet. And be very careful what you wish for.
The site will continue, and if interested, please subscribe and you will be notified when a new post arrives. Thanks muchly.
Stay sane, spiritual, rational, and critical. It is who we are and what we should be.
United we stand Divided we fall.
