John Whitehead: The Attack on Civil Liberties in the Age of COVID-19

You can always count on the government to take advantage of a crisis, legitimate or manufactured.

This coronavirus pandemic is no exception.

Not only are the federal and state governments unraveling the constitutional fabric of the nation with lockdown mandates that are sending the economy into a tailspin and wreaking havoc with our liberties, but they are also rendering the citizenry fully dependent on the government for financial handouts, medical intervention, protection and sustenance.

Unless we find some way to rein in the government’s power grabs, the fall-out will be epic.

What’s At Stake For Americans Now?

Shredding The Economy, Constitution, and Nation

The Truth About the United States’ “Continuity of Government” Plans & The Coronavirus Perfect Storm discusses the evolution of the concept of Continuity of Government and how it can now be used now to overthrow the US Constitution in any emergency – like COVID-19, not just nuclear attacks. It reports: “On Saturday, Politico reported that the Department of Justice has demanded new “emergency powers” during the current pandemic and these powers include being able to indefinitely detain Americans without trial. Politico also noted that the DOJ’s controversial new requests “span several stages of the legal process, from initial arrest to how cases are processed and investigated.”

Surgeon General: This week will be like a 'Pearl Harbor' and '9/11' moment

"This is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment, our 9/11 moment, only it's not going to be localized, it's going to be happening all over the country and I want America to understand that," Vice Admiral Jerome Adams said on "Fox News Sunday."

Adams continued: "I want Americans to understand that as hard as this week is going to be, there is a light at the end of the tunnel."

New York's Unemployment Fund Will Be Insolvent In 2 Months

New York’s unemployment insurance trust had about $2.7 billion at the end of 2019, less than half the minimum needed to remain solvent during a recession, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Alas, it is now facing a depression and with claims skyrocketing, the state has enough money to cover the checks for only 10 weeks, according to an estimate by the Tax Foundation, a Washington-based think tank.

CIVIL UNREST IS COMING As Retailers Board Up Their Shops! Get Ready For “ORDER OUT OF CHAOS”!!!

Civil unrest is coming and things are about to get ugly. The powers that ought not to be are engineering a global economic collapse by shutting down businesses and putting nearly everyone on lockdown and strict quarantine in response to the Covid-19 plandemic. The ramifications of this organized chaos will begin to unfold in the next couple of weeks as more and more people become unemployed, broke, stricken with cabin fever and desperate for things to be fixed.

COVID-19 Depression: Trump Needs a War

A dystopian nightmare for millions spreads across the land.

It is seriously astounding how fast the economy is crumbling. No infusion of funny money will save the American people from the historically severe depression now evolving.

State and federal governments are becoming more authoritarian in response to serious influenza (critical data on the transmission of the disease is absent, muddled, contradictory, and the corporate media feeds a frenzy of fear and paranoia based on conflicting, revised, and often speculative numbers).

Critical supply lines foolishly based on the globalist profit-maximizing concept of “just in time” are now breaking down.

Facts about Covid-19

According to the latest data of the Italian National Health Institute ISS, the average age of the positively-tested deceased in Italy is currently about 81 years. 10% of the deceased are over 90 years old. 90% of the deceased are over 70 years old.

80% of the deceased had suffered from two or more chronic diseases. 50% of the deceased had suffered from three or more chronic diseases. The chronic diseases include in particular cardiovascular problems, diabetes, respiratory problems and cancer.

The younger test-positive deceased almost always had severe pre-existing conditions. For example, a 21-year-old Spanish soccer coach had died test-positive, making international headlines. However, the doctors diagnosed an unrecognized leukemia, whose typical complications include severe pneumonia.

Manufactured Pandemic: Testing People for Any Strain of a Coronavirus, Not Specifically for COVID-19

I work in the healthcare field. Here’s the problem, we are testing people for any strain of a Coronavirus. Not specifically for COVID-19. There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus. There are no reliable agencies or media outlets for reporting numbers of actual COVID-19 virus cases. This needs to be addressed first and foremost. Every action and reaction to COVID-19 is based on totally flawed data and we simply can not make accurate assessments.

Covid 1984 -- Psyop

If we compare these numbers to a real pandemic like the 50 million dead worldwide of the Spanish Flu, we must ask WHAT'S ALL THE FUSS? The fuss only makes sense as a PSYOP.

"Viewed in it's totality this CV-1984 PSYOP is weaponized DISINFORMATION mainly targeting the Chinese-Russian-Iranian alliance overseas and Middle Class Americans at home."

By convincing the American public that a common cold was the terrible PANDEMIC CV-19, Americans don't see their retirement accounts being drained by the FED working in cahoots with investment bankers on Wall Street like Goldman Sachs.

Sweden Is Recording ‘Died of Covid-19’ and ‘Died With Covid-19’ Figures Separately. Why Isn’t Everyone?

Hospital data is published all the time, so Sweden’s “experiment” is being conducted in the open. Every time a patient is admitted, the data is updated on a Covid live website in striking detail. Average age: 60. Those with diabetes: 26 per cent. With cardiovascular or lung disease: 24 per cent. With at least one other underlying health condition: 77 per cent.

Sweden is also updating its statistics to say if someone died from Covid, or of something else – but with Covid. This might reduce the “death” figure by two thirds.

IMPERIAL COLLEGE 'LOCKDOWN' COMPUTER MODEL FUNDED BY EUGENICIST BILL GATES

The "expert", Professor Neil Ferguson, whose computer model gave the UK government a pretext for the ongoing 'lockdown' now in place, was funded by 'The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation'.
Gates is a eugenicist, like his father before him. He is devoted full-time to two projects:
1) Getting everybody "chipped" (i.e. trackable, dependent, enslaved), and
2) Reducing the world's population.

Everyone Jumps Off Bridge After New Government Order Telling Everyone To Jump Off Bridge

A government official issued the order to solve our current crisis, and everyone immediately complied.

Trump and the Media Collude to Destroy American Liberty Using Coronavirus as their Pretext

Due to their complete collapse into a state of fear and panic, most Americans seem oblivious to the fact that we are right now—RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE—living in what could easily be the last days of freedom. It happened in less than 30 days—and it is happening due to mass hyperbole and media manipulation.

No, I am not saying that the coronavirus is not real. Neither am I saying that people have not died from the virus. But I am saying that the fear-mongering over the claim that corona has the potential to be a global pandemic akin to the Black Death is pure, unadulterated poppycock. Make no mistake about it: This is a planned event. The globalists—that the entire evangelical Christian and conservative Republican world kept telling us for the last three years that Donald Trump had on the run—are actually stronger than ever and have chosen this White House and this moment to launch an all-out attack against our Constitution, Bill of Rights and the Laws of Nature.

A New York Woman Was Arrested for Failing to Socially Distance. She Spent the Next 36 Hours in a Cell With 20 Others

New York City police officers arrested three people in Brooklyn over the weekend after they allegedly “failed to maintain social distancing,” court documents reviewed by The Intercept show. The three inpiduals appear to be among the first in the city to be arrested over the Covid-19 mitigation measures — despite city officials promising that those disregarding the lockdown would face fines at most. Violating social distancing is not a crime per se, but each of the inpiduals arrested was charged with obstructing governmental administration, unlawful assembly, and disorderly conduct.

A Novel Suggestion

A month ago, most Americans weren’t ready to accept the Green New Deal – and a plethora of green taxes – because they were told the “climate” was supposedly in “crisis.”

A month later, many Americans seem willing to accept anything – even including house arrest in perpetuity – because of green phlegm.

A nasty bug – vs. a very nasty police state. Which do you prefer to risk? The possibility – or the certainty?

Wake Up: The War is Now Here in America!

This coronavirus fraud is being labeled a war by the ruling powers, but this is no war on any virus, it is war against humanity. How many obvious signs are necessary before the frightened American sheep will pull their heads out of the sand? Because the general population hides from the truth in order to avoid reality, a governing takeover of epoch proportions is being implemented at a lightening pace. Every single day brings forth more tyrannical measures, and these measures are meant to be permanent. Are Americans really as ignorant as this government thinks they are?

Nation In Coronavirus Turmoil: Is There No Way Out?

Fearmongers show the body bags and caskets, display the obituaries; feature news reports of a newborn baby with coronavirus. News media and government propagandists display a world with virtually no defense against a deadly viral pathogen. No masks (nearly useless anyway) and a shortage of ventilators (70-90% die if they get to this point).

Now mayors (not health authorities) mandate masks and really whip up more fear. Every politician wants to hang his political hat on his handling of the coronavirus outbreak. Wear a mask or otherwise you won’t be allowed to stand in line to get food at the grocery store, or at least others in line will chase you away, being fearful of transmission of infectious disease themselves.

The masses follow instructions/orders by their overseers, with no awareness that lack of sunshine vitamin D is what triggers these seasonal infectious disease outbreaks in the first place.

William Engdahl: The Dystopian Scenario Arising From COVID-19

Strategic risk consultant and best-selling author F. William Engdahl discusses the Coronavirus "pandemic" and how scenarios by the Rockefeller Foundation in their 2010 report and the 2019 "Event 201" Coronavirus pandemic simulation by Microsoft's Bill Gates (in conjunction with pharmaceutical companies such as Johnson & Johnson, US military, CIA, and the head of Chinese CDC) foretold in detail the events we are experiencing in real-time with the COVID-19 crisis.

He explains how he never could have imagined such a dystopian geopolitical scenario in his wildest dreams. He looks at the economic collapse that is underway and where the globalists are pushing us, including a digital cashless society, and why they need to destroy the United States of America as a functioning sovereign entity.

Officials: Paddleboarder arrested at Malibu Pier for flouting state stay at home order

A paddleboarder was arrested in Malibu Thursday after ignoring lifeguards' orders to get out of the ocean amid social distancing rules, authorities said.

The lifeguards flagged down deputies for assistance, but the man ultimately chose to stay in the water alongside the Malibu Pier for about 30 to 40 minutes, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said in a Facebook post.

Deputies summoned their patrol boat from Marina Del Rey, and the man swam to shore once it arrived, officials said.

Ground Control to Planet Lockdown: This Is Only a Test

Let’s cross this over with some facts and dissident opinion, in the interest of fostering an informed debate.

The report Covid-19 – Navigating the Uncharted was co-authored by Dr. Anthony Fauci – the White House face of the fight –, H. Clifford Lane, and CDC director Robert R. Redfield. So it comes from the heart of the U.S. healthcare establishment.

The report 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.”

More evidence of fraud?

Should “COVID-19” be reported on the death certificate only with a confirmed test?

COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death.

Certifiers should include as much detail as possible based on their knowledge of the case, medical records, laboratory testing, etc. If the decedent had other chronic conditions such as COPD or asthma that may have also contributed, these conditions can be reported in Part II. (See attached Guidance for Certifying COVID-19 Deaths)

RESTAURANT APOCALYPSE: More than 110,000 restaurants expect to close up forever in the coming weeks, with millions out of work and the industry's future uncertain

The restaurant industry lost an estimated $25 billion in sales and more than three million jobs in the first 22 days of March, as the coronavirus outbreak swept the US.
Roughly 30,000 restaurants have already closed for good across the country, with more than 110,000 expected to shutter in the next month, according to estimates by the National Restaurant Association.

U.S.—Teachers at government schools have raised their concerns that the recent closure of their institutions will have a damaging effect on students. In particular, the nation's educators are worried that the longer the schools are closed, the more likely it is that students will begin thinking for themselves, learn life skills away from the government school system, and realize how much more they learn at home.

High Level Child Rapists Released from Prison Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

Greece, NY — Over the past two weeks, non-violent inmates have been released from prisons across the country in an attempt to prevent massive outbreaks behind bars. Some law enforcement officials have raised concerns over releasing people in jail for marijuana possession, but they’ve largely been ignored thanks to common sense. However, law enforcement sources in New York are now justified in their concerns as child rapists have been released.

After Citizens Refused to Obey, Sheriff Reverses Decision to Close Gun Stores

This week, Villanueva stated that he is abandoning his effort to shut down gun stores. As the AP reports, the sheriff said he’s heeding a federal Department of Homeland Security advisory issued on Saturday that listed gun and ammunition dealers as “essential critical infrastructure workers.”

As TFTP reported last week, other areas of California are practicing similar civil disobedience and refusing to shutter the doors to their guns stores.

“We have no plans to close,” said David Chong, who owns AO Sword Firearms in El Cajon. “We have not heard any lawful order to shut down.”

Chong, like the rest of the pro-gun rights individuals above, recognizes that the closure of gun stores is a direct attack on your Second Amendment right to bear arms.

“We have to be very careful not to get into a ridiculous situation where we are sterilizing the Second Amendment by saying, ‘Oh you can keep and bear arms but you can’t acquire any,'” Chong said.

Coronavirus Missives from the Philippines, USA, France, Lebanon and Germany

In Singapore, you can be jailed for half a year for failing to keep “social distance.” The same offense in New York will only get you fined for up to $500, although an 86-year-old woman has just been killed when she got too close to someone at a Brooklyn hospital. Out of masks, Tennessee doctors strap diapers on their faces.

On March 29th, 2020, 756 Italians died from the coronavirus, and that’s considered encouraging news, believe it or not, since 919 lost their lives on the 27th. Half of the world is in lockdown, and should this drag on, riots will certainly break out, since billions can’t just stay indoors as their food runs out, if it hasn’t already.

Here in Busan, people still mingle, talk and laugh, but schools remain closed, and the baseball season won’t start until April, if that. There are no more international flights from here. Two weeks ago, I could still fly to Saipan or Vladivostok, which is so close, but Russia has just sealed its borders, as has China.

Flu season deaths top 80,000 last year, CDC says

(CNN)An estimated 80,000 Americans died of flu and its complications last winter, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This means it was the deadliest season in more than four decades -- since 1976, the date of the first published paper reporting total seasonal flu deaths, said CDC Spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund.
In previous seasons, 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.

People dying equals Coronavirus? An engineered virus?

I’ve detailed, in past articles, all the Chinese cases who have been diagnosed for no other reason than they have pneumonia, a traditional disease of major proportions in China. Studies estimate that roughly 300,000 citizens die of it every year. Which means there are millions of Chinese people who have develop pneumonia each year. Furthermore, the Chinese government quickly abandoned the idea of testing for the purported coronavirus—favoring instead, CT scans of the lungs. A finding of pneumonia was sufficient for a diagnosis of an “epidemic case.” That is absurd on its face. Pneumonia has many causes, none of which requires a new virus.

Bill Gates’ Quantum Dot Digital Tattoo Implant to Track COVID-19 Vaccine Compliance

Microsoft founder Bill Gates announced on March 18, 2020 during a “Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ session” that he is working on a new, invisible “quantum dot tattoo” implant that will track who has been tested for COVID-19 and who has been vaccinated against it.

According to BioHackInfo.Com: “The quantum-dot tattoos involve applying dissolvable sugar-based microneedles that contain a vaccine and fluorescent copper-based ‘quantum dots’ embedded inside biocompatible, micron-scale capsules. After the microneedles dissolve under the skin, they leave the encapsulated quantum dots whose patterns can be read to identify the vaccine that was administered.”

The No.1 Priority Right Now Is to Test a Representative Sample of the Population — Why Isn’t It Being Done?

Get a polling company to create a 3000-strong representative sample of your population. Then take 9,000 of your SARS-CoV-2 tests and go triple-test every one of them.

Then finally we’ll have the answer to the question of how much covid-19 virus is already out there and therefore what the actual hospitalization and mortality rates are, and we can finally decide what measures make, or do not make, sense based on some actual data.

(And as a bonus we’ll get some insight into how accurate the tests themselves are.)

Peter Schiff: Americans Are in For a Rude Awakening

Peter said this time he thinks the world is going to kick out the dollar as the reserve currency. If that happens, the dollar will just be another currency.

And that means Americans are going to have to have to abide by the same economic rules that govern everybody else. That means if we want to consume, we’ve got to produce. If we want to borrow, we’ve got to save. And Americans are going to be in for a rude awakening.”

There Is No Such Thing as “Non-Essential Business” as Our Commie Governments Will Soon Find Out (As Will We)

As the coronavirus-induced economic lockdowns have tightened across the US, we’ve seen the emergence of a government-inspired fantasy – the myth of the nonessential business.

Government officials across the country have forced the closure of these so-called non-essential businesses while allowing “essential” enterprises to soldier on. Politicians and bureaucrats have developed arbitrary criteria to determine which businesses are and are not essential.

I say arbitrary because there is really no objective way to make such a determination.

"The Media, Internationally, centrally coordinated, has DESTROYED our States and Institutions and Truth and Economy and Liberty and Love with an ENTIRELY fabricated 'pandemic', putting the masses into a fear psychosis." In the U.S. alone, the flu has caused an estimated 36 million illnesses, 370,000 hospitalizations and 22,000 deaths this season alone but we only hear about the 2500 Corona supposed deaths.

The West is just getting destroyed by a New World Order Media directed mob, in the best traditions as described in the protocols.

The Media have just whipped up a huge, worldwide, billions large, blind mob, with a totally bullshit narrative.

They have CRUSHED all major States, their institutions, everything, forcing them into complete destruction. Of order. The economy. Our most fundamental human rights: to make our living. To leave our homes.

It’s Only a Matter of Time Until COVID-19 Lockdowns Lead to Civil Unrest and Violent Crime

(March 31, 2020) The United States of America is basically closed for business, leaving citizens jobless, broke, and without options. We’re facing restrictions on movement the likes of which our nation has never seen. The stores that are open have never fully restocked after the “panic buying” of previous weeks, leading to shelves barren of things like meat, flour, toilet paper, and rice.

It’s only a matter of time before these issues combine to become the flashpoint that leads to an explosion of civil unrest and violent crime.

The US is set to lose its spot as world's top oil producer — and it 'doesn't have a lot of tools' to do anything about it

A world increasingly in lockdown over the coronavirus crisis and the oil price war set off between Saudi Arabia and Russia have brought crude prices down more than 65% year-to-date.
In America's shale country, budgets have been slashed, capital investment put on hold, and workers laid off. In the last two weeks alone, 59 rigs have been put out of service.
"We see in this coming month of April what could be a 20 million barrel a day decline in oil demand. It's unprecedented," Dan Yergin of IHS Markit told CNBC.

Government did not deliver then and it will not deliver now. Liberty stolen will not be returned. Is there a better way?

Saudi Airstrikes Pound Yemeni Capital, Scores of Horses Killed

Looking to retaliate after Houthi missile fire into Saudi Arabia, Saudi warplanes carried out multiple airstrikes against different targets in the capital of Sanaa. hitting a presidential palace, a school, and an airbase, along with a military training site.

The coalition insisted that all of the targets hit were “legitimate military targets” that threaten civilians. Casualty reports suggest one person was killed in the strikes, along with about 70 horses who were kept at the military training site.

These are some of the biggest Saudi strikes in months, as both sides had dialed back the attacks to focus on possible peace talks. There is still no deal in sight, but escalations have led them to trade strikes on one another here and there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I think of the Saudi "justification" for strikes like this, which included horses and schools, I am very much reminded of the response given by Dominick Guzman, Papal Legate to the French province of Montsegur, to battle the Cathars, a Christian split-off group, with their own perspectives, and their own faith.

Upon being informed that women and children were also inside the siege site, his response was, "Kill them all; God will find His own."

The Catholic Church went on to canonize this guy, now known in Catholicism, as St. Dominic, so that he would go on to be revered as a saint, and not the mass murderer he actually was, in order to be rewarded for carrying out the Vatican's orders.

I would like to politely suggest to Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, that the judgment of history against him, will be negative in the extreme, as will history's judgement of the two US Presidents who have enabled him, and are enabling him and his troops' war crimes in Yemen, President Obama, and President Trump.

Who’s Next to Fail in the Post-COVID World?

COVID-19 has cratered the global economy exposing the internal rot within our hyper-financialized global economy as nothing more than a pyramid of Ponzi schemes…

… piling credit on top of credit until there are no more greater fools to sell the new debt to.

That’s the system we have. And it is collapsing precisely because the world is situated at the point where there is little more productive capacity to monetize and pull that capital from the future to fund the new debt.

It won’t matter if we replace this system with pure helicopter money without debt as the Modern Monetary Theory proponents argue. We’re already doing a version of this by having the central banks buy debt they never intend to sell on the open market. So, the debt itself is without value.

The Power of Fear

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Fear is an instrument of social control and repression.

Time and again, terrified people bow to the will of their ruling authorities even when harming their own rights and well-being.

The philosopher Seneca once said that “(t)here are more things…likely to frighten us than there are to crush us. We suffer more often in imagination than in reality.”

Edmund Burke explained that “(n)o passion so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning as fear.”

According to HL Mencken, “(t)he whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”

America’s second president John Adams said “(f)ear is the foundation of most governments.”

America’s Rubicon: RIP Republic

The Americans’ willingness to stand down, and do martial-law in-place, is unprecedented in American history and signals all-clear to the looters, communists, perverts and psychopaths who have been chipping away at the USA for more than 100 years.

With zero understanding of economics and the financial system, zombie Americans believe shuttering the economy for weeks and maybe months can be tolerated by a financial system already in full-on collapse and that it can be done at no cost to them.Played like a fiddle by the Trump administration, supported by the QAnon psychological operation, Americans are barely complaining.

Dr Fauci LIES under oath & downplays Encephalitis due to MMR Vax at Measles's Hearing in D.C.

Dr. Fauci downplays that Encephalitis exists (a known adverse reaction on vaccine manufacturer's insert) he lies under oath, while speaking at the Energy & Commerce Hearing "Confronting a growing public health threat: Measles outbreaks in the U.S." in D.C. 2/27/2019.

Below is a table of injuries from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), a federal program set up by the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. In order for an injury to be tabled there must be unequivocal causation proven by science.

Fauci “Fraud”: Face Of Coronavirus Task Force Exposed In Hillary-Loving Deep State Act

Have you thought about the impact of to the economy by the complete shut-down of California and New York? These two states represent a massive proportion of the United States workforce, and the eager “stay in place” orders of the two states seem almost contrived.

In fact, some people have pointed out that the only way to absolutely stop President Trump booming economy was to have a complete shut-down of work… and the way to accomplish that was to spread a potentially deadly virus (or, at least one that offered the fear factor required.)

President Trump orchestrated the greatest come-back of the American worker in literal decades… in an amazingly short period of time.

Now, suddenly, Americans are being told to stay home…

Anthony Fauci, the NIH's face of the coronavirus, is a Deep-State Hillary Clinton–loving stooge

One of the first things I found about Dr. Fauci, at the WikiLeaks Clinton email trove, was a gushing 2013 email that Fauci had sent to Cheryl Mills, one of Hillary Clinton;s top aides, praising the then–secretary of state for her congressional testimony on Benghazi.

Seniors in Elk Grove can’t leave their houses. These volunteers are bringing them food

Kevin Lillard was behind the wheel as his white van dipped into the parking lot of Renwick Square, a cluster of senior apartments near the western edge of Elk Grove. A team of six gathered for a quick check-in.

“Has anybody traveled outside the country in the last 14 days?”

“Have any of you felt sick or any kind of nausea, or any kind of sickness?”

No one left the circle, so they loaded up two carts with food boxes and disappeared into the halls of the complex.

Age is not the only risk for severe coronavirus disease

WASHINGTON (AP) — Older people remain most at risk of dying as the new coronavirus continues its rampage around the globe, but they’re far from the only ones vulnerable. One of many mysteries: Men seem to be faring worse than women.

The graying of the population means some countries face particular risk. Italy has the world’s second oldest population after Japan. While death rates fluctuate wildly early in an outbreak, Italy has reported more than 80% of deaths so far were among those 70 or older.

Mar 30 09:11

We Have a Choice to Make

The most critical issue in all of this is not, and never was, determining the most effective way to deal with crises like this one (and if it were, there is more than enough evidence from this outbreak alone to entirely disqualify state action from that competition.) This is not about whether government-ordered lockdowns “work” to stem the spread of a deadly virus. Nor is it even about how deadly that virus is or is not.

The much more important issue is: What kind of world are we creating when we allow a government to have this kind of power?

Fortunately–or perhaps not so fortunately–we don’t have to use our imaginations to come up with an answer. The 20th Century’s tragic experiments with all-powerful authoritarian regimes give us plenty of real-life examples. Those regimes were born out of dreams of perfect societies, crafted by “experts” and directed from above.

It Is A Time Of Crisis And U.S. Foreign Policy Is Becoming Unhinged

March 28, 2020 "Information Clearing House" - The Trump administration is reacting to the pandemic stress by lashing out at perceived internal and external enemies. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is leading the external onslaught.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has called for an "immediate global ceasefire" to focus on fighting Covid-19. He has appealed for the "waiving of sanctions that can undermine countries' capacity to respond to the pandemic."

But Washington is not listening.

Requests from Venezuela and Iran for emergency IMF loans to buy medical supplies were blocked by U.S. interventions.

Just a month ago Pompeo announced an increase of sanctions against Iran. The sanctions block money transfers. They make it impossible for Iran to import the medical equipment it urgently needs to counter the epidemic.

The cost of panic

The implications for the future are horrific. THIS cost of panic is already being paid: the destruction of our economy, our society, and what is left of our system of government. Consider the following.

A Kentucky congressman reported that the Kentucky governor has established a toll-free phone number for people to report violators of the the lockdown in that state. No information on whether informers will be rewarded for their squealing to the state: perhaps they’ll get the scofflaw’s toilet paper? (I don’t know if this was Massie, who is now an enemy of the regime for trying to just at least do the deed (the spending bill) legally and constitutionally.)

MIT scientist warns Trump of Dr. Fauci’s reliance on flawed ‘out-dated’ virus-fighting model

Trump says keeping US Covid-19 deaths to 100,000 would be a ‘very good job’

Donald Trump has extended America’s national shutdown for a month, bowing to public health experts, and scientific reality, and warning that the worst of the coronavirus pandemic is yet to come.

New information and analysis suggest that the initial response to corona virus has been a wild overreaction.
The UK government’s response was based on estimates of Professor John Ferguson of Imperial College, London, who originally calculated that as many as 500,000 could die of the corona virus. He then revised that estimate to 20,000 deaths.
Meanwhile another paper by colleagues at Imperial predicted just 5,700 deaths if the lockdown continues, almost one hundred times fewer fatalities. Despite this dramatic reduction the lockdown remains in the UK and has now been extended in the U.S.
Will Trump extend the lockdown again? Will it become a permanent feature of life globally? Are we entering a period of globally imposed martial law?

The Greatest Depression

The Age of Terror was inaugurated with a series of controlled demolitions in New York City on September 11, 2001. Now the world is being led into the Age of Biological Terror with a controlled demolition of the economy that is already causing unprecedented carnage across markets and around the globe. As the dust settles on this demolition, an entirely new economy is ready to be erected in its place: one in which no citizen will be out of the sight of the all-seeing government. This week on The Corbett Report we examine the details of this collapse and why the bankster class is seeking to destroy the financial Ponzi scheme that they themselves created.

Coronavirus Crisis Awakens a Sleeping Giant: China’s Youth

The coronavirus outbreak has mobilized young people in China, sounding a call to action for a generation that had shown little resistance to the ruling Communist Party’s agenda.

For much of their lives, many young Chinese have been content to relinquish political freedoms as long as the party upheld its end of an unspoken authoritarian bargain by providing jobs, stability and upward mobility. Now, the virus has exposed the limits of that trade-off.

Angry and agitated, many young Chinese are pushing back on the government’s efforts to conceal its missteps and its resistance to allowing civil society to help.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, this virus is a bioweapon, introduced to China to seed destabilization here, would this, on top of an horrific economic slide, not been one of the design objectives for the introduction of such a weapon?!?

And BTW, when will a DNA decoding of this virus ever be available to the public?!?

Folks, if in fact, it was a bioweapon, even a bioweapon in development, no matter who developed it, the short answer is... never.

Neil Ferguson, the Scientist Who Convinced Boris Johnson of UK Covid Lockdown, Isn’t Very Bright

He was scaremongering that 150,000 people could die from the Mad Cow disease, separately it was on the basis of his flawed foot-and-mouth disease models that the UK ordered the destruction of a gigantic number of perfectly healthy animals costing farmer’s livelihoods and £10bn of totally needless economic damage

The scientist whose calculations about the potentially devastating impact of the coronavirus directly led to the countrywide lockdown has been criticised in the past for flawed research.

Professor Neil Ferguson, of the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis at Imperial College in London, produced a paper predicting that Britain was on course to lose 250,000 people during the coronavirus epidemic unless stringent measures were taken. His research is said to have convinced Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his advisors to introduce the lockdown.

Another video has been shared around the country showing a father with his young daughter addressing the Italian prime minister, saying: “It’s already 15-20 days that we’ve been inside and we’re at our limit.”

He gestures to his little girl who is eating a piece of bread and says: “Like my daughter, other children in a few days won’t be able to eat this bit of bread. Rest assured, you will regret this because we’re going to have a revolution.”

COVID-19 and Economic Duress a Pretext to Enhance Police State Powers?

Ruling authorities take advantage of times like now by instituting draconian policies they’re unable to introduce during normal times without risking mass rebellion.

Lockdown Lunacy

Former Ministry of Health director-general Prof. Yoram Lass has been regularly interviewed by the Israeli media since the coronavirus outbreak first started. But in contrast to the prophets of doom and deep concern shown by most medical professionals, he has presented a somewhat different and controversial opinion. Prof. Lass feels that it is wrong to shut down the entire country because of a virus that is ultimately less of a killer than the flu. In other words, he is saying that taking into account the cost benefits, it is preferable ‘to sacrifice’ the elderly so that daily life can go on as normal. This is an outlook that has antagonized many and has made him a ‘persona non grata’ in the TV interview studios.

Lass is at peace with himself over all this and with the voices calling him ‘deluded.” “I didn’t invite myself to the studios,” he told “Globes,” “and I’m prepared to give my opinion to everybody who is ready to listen.”

How deadly is the coronavirus? It’s still far from clear

personal freedom in the history of our nation, Boris Johnson resolutely followed the scientific advice that he had been given. The advisers to the government seem calm and collected, with a solid consensus among them. In the face of a new viral threat, with numbers of cases surging daily, I’m not sure that any prime minister would have acted very differently.

But I’d like to raise some perspectives that have hardly been aired in the past weeks, and which point to an interpretation of the figures rather different from that which the government is acting on. I’m a recently-retired Professor of Pathology and NHS consultant pathologist, and have spent most of my adult life in healthcare and science – fields which, all too often, are characterised by doubt rather than certainty.

BREAKING: Coronavirus is afraid of coming into contact with Joe Biden

The dreaded coronavirus, which is warranting strict social distancing measures across the country, is employing its own social distancing measures to hide from Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

“Forget six feet,” the deadly virus said, “I don’t want to touch him with a 39-and-a-half-foot pole!”

While a recent poll showed that 97 percent of respondents are afraid of catching coronavirus, the coronavirus is in fact afraid of catching Joe Biden.

Police, Military Begin Door to Door Searches to Hunt Down New Yorkers Seeking Refuge

Rhode Island — In perhaps the most unprecedented attack on the Constitution on which the Free Thought Project has ever has ever reported, the governor of Rhode Island has announced that the National Guard will begin conducting house-to-house searches to hunt down New Yorkers seeking refuge in their state.

Not only will cops be violating the 4th Amendment rights of citizens in their homes, the governor also announced that Rhode Island cops have already begun puling over every vehicle they see with a New York license plate.

In a move that is reminiscent to that of Nazi Germany, the governor labeled an entire state a threat. Checkpoints have been set up along the interstate and vehicles with New York plates were being stopped without probable cause on Friday.

Moscow Surrenders to Coronavirus as Humiliated Russians Ordered to Take Fake 1-Week “Holiday”

MOSCOW – We knew it was coming, but we naively believed that it would take longer than one week, and more than three dead grannies, to shut down Russia. Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin – the fink of our time – has ordered all restaurants, shops and non-essential businesses to close their doors starting on Saturday. The city’s cherished parks and museums will also be shuttered. His decree was followed a day later by a fun little update from Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, who casually dropped on Friday that the new restrictions being implemented in Moscow would actually be extended to the entire country.

Why didn’t Hitler invade Russia with a ubiquitous virus that kills less people than the common cold? Think of all the chiseled SS death squads that would still be alive and well.

Clusterfuck Nation – Blog March 27, 2020 Forced Liquidation

Historians of the future, pan-roasting fresh-caught June bugs over their campfires, may wonder when, exactly, was the moment that the financial world broke with reality. Was it when Nixon slammed the “gold window” shut? When “maestro” Alan Greenspan first bamboozled a Senate finance committee? When Pets.com face-planted 268 days after its IPO? When Ben Bernanke declared the housing bubble “contained?”

If our reality is a world of human activity, then finance is now completely divorced from it for the obvious reason that, for now, there is no human activity. Everyone, except the doctors and nurses, and some government officials, is locked down. So, the only other thing actually still out there spinning its wheels is finance and, to those of us watching from solitary confinement, it is looking more and more like an IMAX-scale hallucination with Dolby sound.

How the Hell Is This in Any Way, Shape or Form Proportional to the Actual Threat?

On 23rd March, the British Government put the entire country on lockdown risking incalculable consequences that could bring:

Economic meltdown
The mother of all financial crashes
Millions of job losses
Thousands of businesses going to the wall
Masses of people plunged into poverty
A huge deterioration in the mental health of millions
The potential deaths of thousands of old people left on their own with no carers (see the example of the Spanish care homes)
Mass civil unrest

Such enormous risks can surely only be justified if they are proportionate to threat. Are they?
