    This is not just another flu.

    The rate of infection is more than twice as high and especially the hospitalization rate is 10-20%. Even young people need to be connected to ventilators because the lung fills up with fluid in a short amount of time.
    Please take this seriously.

    Russia was smart and closed their borders to China early. Borders were closed 1.5 months before we did anything here.

    Vitamin C is generally good, and it could help because vitamin C especially strengthens capillaries. Weak capillaries might lead to the lungs filling with fluid but this is speculative from my side. Vitamin D and SARS certainly had a correlation so I increased my vitamin D level already during the last couple of weeks.

    Generally both with Vitamin D and Vitamin C you cannot overdose (as long as you are not eating 1 kg of course). So it is super-safe to just triple or 10-fold the daily recommended rate without any problem.

    So far even babies have tested positive on corona and all just had cold symptoms. No reported death for any permanent damages for anyone 0-9 years yet (worldwide).

Even though it will have severe economic consequences and might not lead to enough herd immunity to prevent a re-emergence after the lock down has ended. Not to mention that expert from the J-IDEA suggests that it would have to last 12-18 months, because that is the amount of time that might be required to develop a vaccine.

    "Anti-extremism experts are “quite concerned” about hateful rhetoric spiking in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic — not just because of a rise in anti-Asian sentiment related to the virus, but also due to people in self-quarantine being more exposed to extremist movements online." Really? This so-called "discrimination" against the Chinese or Asians started with losing jobs to overseas cheap labor markets, especially China and India. US government acts as if few Americans graduate from STEM jobs here (80,000 annually) and still allows hiring thousands from overseas through H1B's to work in our job sector filling competitive slots in CA. So, over 2/3 nonwhite immigrants that includes 14% Chinese make up Silicon Valley workforce, and former American employees were well known to train them before massive lay-offs. Yes, there is a big dot of COVID-19 right over SF and the Valley. Educated people do not like losing their jobs or being displaced by less talented and foreign employees. Call it what you like.

    Corona Virus and the Preconditions for Revolutionary Change

    I recall that I have written about this before, the fact that a deep political transformation of society cannot be achieved through diligent political work and factual information alone. But that it requires certain preconditions. We see that the major revolutions of our time, peaceful or not, have occurred in conjunction with economic and social crises: the French revolution of 1789, the Russian revolution of 1917 and the German revolution of 1933. Military defeat, rotten state finances, economic depression, and hunger. That is what is required to rock the masses out of the complacence and break the status quo.

    Many are now predicting that the global response to the Corona virus will lead, or has already led to, a global depression. Here in Sweden some economists are talking about 20 to 40 percent unemployment. If that happens, which is not unlikely, the unemployment benefit system will collapse. Ten percent unemployment is bearable, since nine are paying for the tenth. 40 percent is not since that requires three employed to pay for two unemployed in addition to their own expenses. As well as supporting the whole of the public sector through taxes. There simply are not enough money, and the result will be either massive government debt, followed by hyperinflation, or a collapse of the social security system as a whole.

    When either happens, people will finally realize that they cannot afford the large idle migrant populations that live among us and who, for various reasons, are unable to contribute to society.

    My prediction is that we will see a growing resentment towards the foreign welfare recipients, followed by violence and increased segregation. Finally we will see political action at the ballot box as people will start to vote for parties that promise to physically rid our nations of the immigrants rather that just reducing immigration.

    Bill Gates Pandemic Emergency Simulation: Now Gone Live!


    The invention and deployment of the internet with nodes covering the world has created a growing problem for the governing elite – those who have owned and controlled the legacy media that has dominated and controlled thought since the ‘discovery’ of the printing press circa 1439.



    Today there is a small opening in the propaganda that historically blankets the minds of those participating in the shared consciousness resulting from tightly controlled media. An opening that has enabled many of us to learn more about unapproved and hidden topics that expose those who control and enslave most of the world’s population.



    This battle between the controlled, scripted, propaganda media and the fledgling, still disorganized, and divisive alternative media has reached a flash point. To counter the availability of alternative information, the legacy dynasties have introduced chaos into the battleground, deliberately creating disinformation and misinformation that had already been the taint of legacy media – but which now deliberately taints alternative media. The effect is to create a sense of hopelessness as many tire of searching for truth on a battleground of lies.



    The legacy dynasties of media and mind control are also the creators of currency and controllers of civilization’s infrastructure. They overpower the alternative media, control social media platforms and Internet connectivity, and present pretended high “authority” as a means to do so. It’s in this environment where the legacy dynasties are now working their end-game to safeguard their generational stolen wealth, solidify positions of power, and squash and discredit the blossoming sources of alternative information and access to truth.



    The coronavirus story is another enormously expensive full-spectrum charge against the soldiers of truth and liberty. The evolving story appears like something out of a science fiction novel and in fact it likely is from science fiction. Jack London wrote a ‘science fiction’ short story in 1907 called “The Unparalleled Invasion” which first appeared circa 1910. This futuristic story contains the essence of the coronavirus story of today. The plot involves a growing and powerful China, which refuses to contain its population within its historic boundaries and scoffs at the West’s threat to take action to keep China in its box. The ‘final solution’ developed for China was a virus:


    But on May 1, 1976, had the reader been in the imperial city of Peking, with its then population of eleven millions, he would have witnessed a curious sight. He would have seen the streets filled with the chattering yellow populace, every queued head tilted back, every slant eye turned skyward. And high up in the blue he would have beheld a tiny dot of black, which, because of its orderly evolutions, he would have identified as an airship. From this airship, as it curved its flight back and forth over the city, fell missiles—strange, harmless missiles, tubes of fragile glass that shattered into thousands of fragments on the streets and house-tops. [emphasis by author]




    The crafty West had developed a bioweapon and, contained in glass (test) tubes, the virulent menace was released. The city of Peking, in the story, with population of 11 million, was an alternative-reality equivalent of the 2019 city of Wuhan, also with population of 11 million.



    But this seemingly interesting case of predicting the future is only one of many examples that have muddied the waters, confusing reality with script and bringing millions of terabytes of discussion in our modern civilization’s digital Plato’s Cave. Among other examples of prediction found in the sea of printed material is Dean Koontz’s 1981 book entitled The Eyes of Darkness. Koontz invents the bioweapon Wuhan-400, which is eerily similar to today’s Wuhan coronavirus:




    But wait there is more! How about this one, entitled End of Days: Predictions and Prophecies about the End of the World, written by Sylvia Browne and published in 2008. In this bit of predictive fiction we see even more details of the plan:






    But I am getting away from the primary topic. The legacy dynasty often called the ‘global elite’ is feverishly working toward its end-game, something also already
    predicted in the planted stones at Elbert County Georgia in 1980:






    World must prepare for war against a global pandemic’: Bill Gates fears a Spanish flu-like disease could wipe out 33 million people in less than a year.



    Gates raises the alarm and telegraphs his Masonic connections: 33 million. What hat did he pull that number out of?



    Pandemic Peddling


    Bill Gates Faces Trial in India for Illegally Testing Tribal Children with Vaccines
    More damning than all the predictive programming cited above are the political machinations of the medical mafias and vaccine executioners at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. On October 18, 2019, a simulated pandemic event called Event 201 was held in New York City. The simulated event was a high-level pandemic exercise hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.





    Please take the time to watch the video and the associated videos to get a good sense of how a ‘real’ pandemic could be used to control information and to lock-down the people at the same time. Notice the segment of the meeting that involves the media and use of the phrase ‘fake news’ as this self important emergency epidemic board voices its “concern” about the public being told that the pandemic was deliberately caused: “dis and misinformation are reeking havoc on the caps response. Health workers are under attack in a number of locations due to rumors that they are purposely spreading this disease. And response efforts in many places have had to be suspended because of concerns around violence.”



    Interesting that those running the simulation have already decided that their explanation and plan of action will be suspected of being fake – or even that they will be thought to have deliberately caused the pandemic.



    One of the conscripted do-gooders at the simulated pandemic event reads a list of problems the global pandemic response effort has with “mis and disinformation”:


    “This is a massive problem, one that threatens governments and trusted institutions. National governments are considering or have already implemented a range of interventions to combat misinformation. Some governments have taken control of national access to the Internet, others are censoring websites and social media content and a small number have shut down Internet access completely to prevent the spread of misinformation. Penalties have been put in place for spreading harmful falsehoods, including arrests.”


    It is always mind boggling to me that groups of people can be collected and then encouraged to believe their mission is more important than any plans, thoughts, and actions of those actually affected. This scenario is similar to that studied in the landmark “Stanford Prison Experiment” described in the book, The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil, by Philip Zimbardo. Given pretended authority without negative feedback from their peers, do-gooders can, and will, assume totalitarian powers, becoming dangerously evil. According to Zimbardo:


    The experiment is really a study in how ordinary people, even good people, can be seduced or corrupted by powerful social situations.



    In this type of environment affected people have an emotional response that overrides personality norms, historical knowledge or even common-sense thinking. That’s why governments throughout the world use real or invented crises to do massive harm to their own people.



    Further, it is easy to lose site of the fact that a government paranoid enough to shut down access to information, except for government information, will become a monster – a totalitarian expression of an evil control system: The Lucifer Effect.


    People have a right to search for information and to make their own decisions about what is true or not and what is right or wrong for themselves. A government’s version of ‘truth’ has almost always been untrue. Consider the lies involving America’s involvement in WW 1 and 2, the fabrications used to pass the Federal Reserve Act or the made-up story about an attack in the “Gulf of Tonkin” which launched the Vietnam war killing nearly 60,000 American soldiers for no justifiable reason whatsoever. Consider the lies of the assassination of John F. Kennedy or the outstanding lies told by the government regarding the World Trade Center destruction on 9/11/2001. Revisit the lies told about why the USS Liberty was attacked and 34 men killed and 171 wounded. Governments are serial offenders in the violation of trust.


    What Comes Next


    The current coronavirus event (the real one) is a very expensive operation. Whether as an act of God or more likely manufactured, this event has not yet completely played out. The world controlled propaganda media is keeping the people updated on the daily spread of the virus, while nations rush to make preparations for how they will deal with the “pandemic.” The Gates-funded Event 201 has already alerted those who can see as to what is likely to follow in the wake of the current event.



    On the Tuesday February 25th edition of the Power Hour with host Daniel Brigman, Brigman relays some information he received from an undisclosed source regarding the potential for a period of a “creeping” lockdown in America. The information is at the beginning of the audio below. Daniel was told that a widening ring of lockdowns might occur beginning with simple (and reasonable) steps to prevent infection, but will continue to include the restriction of more and more liberties until it becomes like Martial Law. He expected this to happen in March and referred to the unfolding Martial Law as “March Madness.”

    The worldwide virus meme is exceptionally powerful and provides cover for all manner of population control, manipulation and destabilization. Using the pretensions of “censoring misinformation and disinformation,” controlled governments can silence and stifle any and all attempts at exposing the misuse of a pandemic fear for purposes of further erosion of the sovereignty of nation states. In fact, using do-gooders in a manner described in Zimbardo’s experiment, we can see a recipe that could include mass murder by governments in order to bring “health and well being” to the people.



    World Government: The Final Tyranny


    We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest. – James Warburg – 1950



    The statement above was made to the United States Senate by James Paul Warburg (1896-1969,) the son of Paul Moritz Warburg, and a nephew of both Felix Warburg and Jacob Schiff, both associated with Kuhn, Loeb & Company which financed the Russian Revolution – the 20th century’s largest mass murder. The occasion was testimony before the Subcommittee on Revision of the United Nations Charter.



    There is no question that mankind is being marched toward the ends expressed repeatedly by those speaking on behalf of a single world government, with its single mangled culture and sublimation of all races (except the remaining supremacist race) into a single colourless brown race; a worker race, with the IQ of the world’s least intelligent people. The description of this New World Order can be found in countless documents and testimonies on record for hundreds of years.



    The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals.
    Kalergi Plan




    The principal driving force behind the planned horrendous destruction of civilization is mental illness. The mental illness of a religious cult, which has preserved its dark form of psychopathy through generations of inbreeding and generational application of intense fear as a means of forced member compliance. Using psychology and preying on the pathological altruism of European peoples, this tribe and perhaps the elementals to whom they pray, has outsmarted and now holds the best of mankind in a state of perpetual fear.



    Whether the attack is alleged to be by Muslim terrorists flying passenger planes with the precision of computer guidance into the World Trade Center or fabricated events of traumatic schoolyard shootings, the signature is always the same. For those who have learned to “see” – it becomes even more frustrating that Americans stand for this continued torment.



    Coronavirus Confusion and Vaccines: The Doorway to Your Temple


    In the case of the Pandemic Emergency Board Simulation discussed above it is interesting to point out that in addition to setting up the simulation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also funded the group that owns a patent on the creation of coronavirus, and this group was already working on a vaccine. The group called the Pirbright Institute, owners of the filed patent for coronavirus, name the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as the primary funder.



    Coincidentally, a group of Israeli scientists announced that they are close to developing a coronavirus vaccine, perhaps within a few weeks.
    “Let’s call it pure luck,” he said. “We decided to choose coronavirus as a model for our system just as a proof of concept for our technology.” [emphasis Zerohedge]



    Johnson and Johnson claims to be jumping into the vaccine fray and plans a coronavirus vaccine soon.



    But Wait!


    But according to Dr. Francis Boyle, and an interview with Alex Jones, this is a weaponized virus like SARS:


    Alex: Wow. And again, SARS is the same coronavirus family.


    Dr. Boyle: Right. It’s weaponized coronavirus. They also conclude that they really couldn’t find an antibody against it.



    Weaponized viruses can exhibit a characteristic defined as antibody-dependent enhancement. This is a type of virus that cannot be defeated by vaccines – in fact, a vaccine might cause a worse resurgence of the disease than if someone had already had coronavirus and survived.



    ADE is also a major concern for vaccine design and antibody-based drugs therapy, since antibodies generated or used in these procedures may lead to ADE. ADE has been observed in coronavirus for decades, but the molecular mechanisms are unknown. Recent advances in understanding the receptor recognition and cell entry mechanisms of coronaviruses have allowed us to use coronaviruses as a model system for studying ADE.Leaving open the possibility that vaccine companies “might” engineer a vaccine that avoids the problems of ADE, we first have to ask – since there are no SARS vaccines or Dengue Fever vaccines – how can we trust vaccine companies, who have a history of damaging, maiming and killing patients with harmful vaccines?



    Not trying to be pessimistic here, but is this just the next level of population destruction as called for in the “Guide Stones,” or is this another false-flag, fear-training, baby step toward the “final solution.” Whatever is happening with this current event, very few people have died, compared to seasonal flu, which very few people purchase masks to prevent.



    One thing we know the coronavirus “drill” is working well cloaking the American financial systems “crackup-boom”?



    Epilogue:
    Liars on Record reassuring the public : Lab for coronavirus test kits may have been contaminated


    Oh Wait it’s Not a Virus!



    Bill Gates Pandemic Emergency Simulation: Now Gone Live ... 22 III 2020.


    Gates & Co are doing this because they can. WHY are they held to account for nothing YET?

    Germany: Borders are closed due to the coronavirus epidemic — except for migrants



    If you’re an American, British, French, or Swiss tourist who wants to take in some of the sights in Germany, you’ll have to wait a while before you can go because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic. But if you’re a migrant from Asia, the Middle East, or Africa who has entered Europe illegally? No problem!

    Last week, Germany closed its land borders to all foreign citizens except for those providing essential services coming from France, Luxembourg, and Switzerland in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus. However, the German Ministry of the Interior has confirmed that “asylum-seekers” are still welcome in Germany in spite of the ban, according to a report by Junge Freiheit.

    In practice, this means that if a migrant were to illegally enter the European Union’s Schengen Zone via Italy or Greece and make it to France or Switzerland, he can still demand asylum in Germany, and thus must be allowed to traverse these countries so that he can formally request it on German territory.

    “At Germany’s EU external borders [airports and seaports], there has been no change in the [asylum] procedure,” a representative of the Ministry of the Interior told Junge Freiheit. When asked if this also applies to Germany’s internal Schengen borders, she confirmed that this was also the case there.

    In practice, this suggests that the German government feels that citizens of other European countries are dangerous because they might spread the coronavirus; migrants, on the other hand, apparently pose no such risk in their eyes as long as they remember to use the word “asylum.”

    Germany’s stance on this is inexplicable, especially given that even as things stand within Germany as it is, migrants currently being held in German facilities are balking at being asked to follow coronavirus restrictions and have been attacking police and center personnel in response, in at least one case even flying an ISIS flag, as previously reported by Voice of Europe.

    Norway: Roma leaving the country amidst coronavirus outbreak



    The City of Oslo arranged for a flight to take Roma people who are not Norwegian nationals back to Romania last week. The reason? They’re afraid of getting coronavirus (COVID-19) infections.

    Earlier in the week, a group of 63 Roma who are Romanian nationals had taken a bus back to Romania. Another 140 who remained in Oslo tried to return via the same route later, but were unable to get through due to the border closings as a result of the epidemic, reported Norway’s Dagbladet.

    As a result, Oslo set up its own flight to take the group to Romania on Wednesday.

    The City of Oslo has said that many of the Roma in the city, who are typically homeless and live by travelling from place to place, have expressed a wish to return to Romania. They’re concerned about being exposed to the virus, and are also worried about their relatives back home, City Councilor Raymond Johansen told Dagbladet.

    Johansen said that the city would likewise take steps to ensure that those Roma who remain in Oslo understand the new measures that have been introduced to slow the virus’ spread.

    Oslo’s government is encouraging the Roma who are not nationals to leave Norway as it helps to relieve pressure on the city’s social services as it struggles to find housing and medical resources for all of the homeless people who now need it as a result of the epidemic. 70 people were turned away from a homeless shelter run by the Grřnland Church due to lack of space, and the medical facility run by the Paulus Church has been forced to close down, as have other services for the homeless around the city, according to a report at Resett.

    The flights for Roma have not been limited to Oslo. In Bergen, approximately 23 Roma were given a flight home after the city was forced to close all its facilities for the homeless due to the epidemic.

    Germany: Merkel in quarantine after her doctor tests positive for virus



    BERLIN (AP) — German Chancellor Angela Merkel has gone into quarantine after being informed that a doctor who administered a vaccine to her has tested positive for the new coronavirus.

    Merkel, 65, was informed about the doctor’s test shortly after holding a news conference Sunday announcing new measures to curb the spread of the virus, her spokesman Steffen Seibert said.

    He said that Merkel had received a precautionary vaccine Friday against pneumococcal infection.

    For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever or coughing. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia. About 93,800 people have recovered, mostly in China.

    Seibert said in a statement that Merkel would undergo “regular tests” in the coming days and continue with her work from home for the time being.

    Merkel had earlier expressed her gratitude to Germans who were following the rules on social distancing, saying it was important to remain at least 1.5 meters (about five feet) apart to reduce the likelihood of infection.

    Merkel on Sunday thanked “the overwhelming majority” of Germans who were following rules on social distancing to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

    “I know that it means sacrifice,” she said, citing the economic and social costs that the lockdown is having. “I’m moved by the fact that so many are abiding by these rules. This way we show care for older and sick people, because the virus is most dangerous to them. In short: we are saving lives with this.”

    Merkel said the lockdown had already affected her profoudly, too.

    “My life has also fundamentally changed and now consists largely of phone calls and video conferences,” she said.

    The development illustrated how even world leaders aren’t free from the risk of infection.

    “With a certain distance the risk of infections is reduced almost to zero,” Merkel told reporters. “Whether you are half a meter apart or 1.5 meters apart makes a huge difference.”

    Seconds later, she was informed that her doctor had tested positive for COVID-19.
