    It is unprecedented that figures like this walk around freely. I don't want to know what's going on in that mind. Not so long ago there were institutions for these "people". We live in a dangerous time where everything is accepted because: they are afraid of discriminating a person like this. My opinion is: lock up in a psychiatric institution and let it work hard, because this one has never heard of it. And the left-wing laughs and support these monsters.

    I've never been comfortable around transies since they seem to mock women or girls. You can see this from the photo due to the extreme "cheap" imitation of a woman. Would I seek medical services from him, no. A child would even speak his or her opinion about that health worker not being in the "right state of mind."

    That's what they get "a kick" out of. Except for this they also try to mock nature, gender identity and sexuality. It's even beyond insane, it's pure evil. In the past men dressing up as women had the (often unwarranted) reputation of "being meek" and non-violent, but that's part of the deception. It seems that they also have become more threatening and violent now, since this is "tolerated" now, or even considered "acceptable".

    Kids, speak their minds about this yes, unless the are indoctrinated not to, Same with Blacks / other races or obnoxious people in general. Part of this is instinct, part is because they can see "this person is not like the others". That's one of the motives those perverts want to sneak into education or even adopt children. Also get positions of influence/'authority' all to feign normalcy and well assist in determining policies. LGBT are a bit like the druggies as well, always want others, "undecided" to join them. And well, they found Allies in the left, liberals and even some cucks have bought into this.

    But we are on corona/covid19 scam. That Kiketrannie was a well deserved representative in this. I think it served even as distraction. I mean two extremely preposterous confrontations with lunacy are too much for most.

    My mother lives in a high rise apartment building for the elderly. It has 129 apartments and over the last year at least 160 persons (because of residents dying of old age or simply moving and others moving in) have lived in that building. My mother is 82 & I would guess that the median age in the building is around 80. Over the last ten months six residents have died from covid. One was in his 90s and the others were 84-89. Many other residents (at least 1/4) have had covid but recuperated without hospitalization. So even among the very old you are not likely to die or even require extensive medical care. And if they do the local hospital will not admit the very old who are ill with covid.

    You mean they died with a provably fraudulent "corona-test" of old age (pneumonia/respiratory problems are a common cause of death). After long debates with friends and foes. The Covid-narrative is one of a scamdemic on all levels.

    Consider what has happened:

    * "Isolating" virus through mixing samples with lab materials.
    * Establishing virus model by analysing that goop and run at through software.
    * Proving pathogenity by forcing mixture down the respiratory tract of test animals (No control experiments with "virus free" mixture, since that would yield similar results).
    * Designing PCR Test by choosing markers that are only "validated" against some other 'viruses' in their data-base, but with ignorance of RNA-diversity in the human body that's home to an astronomic amounts of RNA-molecules that are virtually unexplored and unexplained.
    * Configurating PCR-Tests in ways that must also yield a substantial amount of technically false positives.
    * Defining a "new disease" (Covid19) by combining all kinds of common and rarer symptoms of older diseases and perhaps some poorly observed ones.
    * Boxing healthy, ill and seriously sick individuals together as "Covid-Cases", because they tested positive on some test that can't prove that someone is actually infected.
    * Publishing statistics on this that include anyone dying with a positive test as "Covid-Dead", while not publishing comparative data on the present and past years mortality.
    * Instil "measures against the pandemic" that are not only economical cannibalism, but also detrimental to general health over time.
    * Push people more and more to "accept a vaccine" that is actually a virtually untested genetic therapy.
    * Ignore conflicts of interest between "experts", doctors, pharma-investors, media-investors as well as politician.
    * Celebrate "Frontline-Workers" (medical staff at hospitals) as "heroes", boosting their ego and motivating them to have an interest into an embellished "pandemic"-narrative
    * Use those "heroes" as "Corona's Witnesses"
    * Call anyone that disagrees a "conspiracy theorist" that "doesn't trust science".

    What If We Never Reach Herd Immunity?

    Hitting the threshold might actually be impossible. But vaccines can still help end the pandemic.



    While COVID-19 vaccines are very good—even unexpectedly good—at preventing disease, they are still unlikely to be good enough against transmission of the virus, which is key to herd immunity. On the whole, we should expect immunity to be less effective against transmission than against disease, to wane over time, and to be eroded by the new variants now emerging around the world. If vaccine efficacy against transmission falls below the herd-immunity threshold, then we would need to vaccinate more than 100 percent of the population to achieve herd immunity. In other words, it becomes downright impossible.

    Even if herd immunity remains theoretically within reach, 15 percent of Americans say they will never get a COVID-19 vaccine, making that threshold all the harder to hit.

    The role of COVID-19 vaccines may ultimately be more akin to that of the flu shot: reducing hospitalizations and deaths by mitigating the disease’s severity. The COVID-19 vaccines as a whole are excellent at preventing severe disease, and this level of protection so far seems to hold even against a new coronavirus variant found in South Africa that is causing reinfections. This, rather than herd immunity, is a more achievable goal for the vaccines. “My picture of the endgame is we will, as fast as we can, start taking people out of harm’s way” through vaccination, says Marc Lipsitch, an epidemiologist at Harvard. The virus still circulates, but fewer people die.

    At the same time, we don’t need to hit the herd-immunity threshold before transmission begins to slow. With less transmission, fewer people will get exposed, and if those who do are vaccinated, even fewer will become seriously sick or die. The pandemic will slowly fade as hospitalizations and deaths inch down.

    We likely won’t cross the threshold of herd immunity. We won’t have zero COVID-19 in the U.S. And global eradication is basically a pipe dream. But life with the coronavirus will look a lot more normal.

    The variants are the newest and potentially most pressing challenge to herd immunity. As the virus evolves, our vaccines and our immunity will continually have to catch up. “The trillion-dollar question for where we go from here is this relationship we have with the variants,” says Michael Osterholm, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.

    For about a year, the coronavirus seemed to gain mutations at a steady and unspectacular rate. But recently, new variants have accumulated an unusually large number of mutations, and worrisome new data are now coming out every week.

    The South Africa and Brazil variants, which are the most concerning for immunity, share several mutations, including a key one called E484K. These mutations change the shape of the virus’s spike protein, making it less recognizable to the immune system. In South Africa, the variant is reinfecting some people who had COVID-19 before. On Sunday, the country even paused its rollout of the AstraZeneca vaccine after data came to light suggesting that it does not protect against mild or moderate disease from the new variant. And the Johnson & Johnson and Novavax vaccines, which were trialed in parallel in multiple countries, also seem less effective in South Africa—falling from 72 to 57 percent efficacy and 89 to 49 percent efficacy, respectively. In Brazil, the region around Manaus is experiencing a huge second wave of COVID-19 despite high levels of previous immunity from a first wave last year. The new variant in Brazil may be responsible.

    Let’s begin by defining our terms. Herd immunity is the hazy, long-promised end of the pandemic, but its requirements are quite specific. Jennie Lavine, a biologist at Emory University, likens it to wet logs in a campfire. If there’s enough water in the logs—if there’s enough immunity in a population—“you can’t get the fire to start, period,” she says. To be more technical about it, a population reaches herd immunity when the average number of people infected by a single sick person falls below one. Patient zero might infect another person, but that second person can’t infect a third. This is what happens with measles, polio, and several other diseases for which vaccines have achieved herd immunity in the United States. A case might land here, but the spark never finds much dry fuel. The outbreak never sustains itself.

    For COVID-19, the herd-immunity threshold is estimated to be between 60 and 90 percent. That’s the proportion of people who need to have immunity either from vaccination or from prior infection. In the U.S., the countdown to when enough people are vaccinated to reach herd immunity has already begun.

    But what if we still can’t get the logs wet enough? What if they are drying out faster than we can douse them? A number of signs now point to a future in which the transmission of this virus cannot be contained through herd immunity. COVID-19 will likely continue to circulate, to evolve, and to reinfect. In that case, the goal of vaccination needs to be different.

    All of these data are pointing in the same direction: Immunity, whether from vaccines or from prior infection, is weaker against these variants. However, the U.K. variant, which is significantly more transmissible than earlier iterations of the virus, has not been linked to significant reductions in vaccine efficacy. But scientists are beginning to find E484K in some samples of the U.K. variant too. In multiple infection hot spots around the world, the coronavirus is independently converging on some of the same key mutations.

    These same mutations keep popping up probably because they are the lowest-hanging fruit. They are relatively simple genetic changes. Other mutations that confer certain advantages to the virus may exist but require more dramatic genetic changes, says Benhur Lee, a virologist at the Icahn School of Medicine. Given enough time and enough opportunities to replicate, the virus may sometimes be lucky enough to reach higher up the tree. But “if you don’t give it a chance, it takes even longer,” Lee told me. Slowing down the coronavirus’s evolution requires preventing infections whenever and however we can.

    This needs to happen globally. Right now, wealthy countries have largely bought out the vaccine supply. Even if they are able to vaccinate large segments of their population by the end of 2021, the virus will keep circulating elsewhere and keep gaining mutations, eventually evolving so much that the original vaccines may become even less effective. Rampant spread in unvaccinated countries may very well seed new variants that come back to cause new outbreaks in vaccinated countries. As my colleague James Hamblin has written, “The countries that hoard the vaccine without a plan to help others do so at their own peril.” Taking away the virus’s chance to acquire other advantageous mutations means reducing its spread everywhere. Vaccines can be updated against any new variants, but it will be a constant race to catch up.

    It’s not just the variants that make reaching herd immunity a challenge.

    Think of immunity from vaccines not as an on-off switch but as a dampener on the virus’s ability to replicate inside you. There are four important thresholds, from easiest to hardest to achieve: protection against severe symptoms, protection against any symptoms, protection against transmission, and protection against infection. Most of the topline efficacy numbers for vaccines are against symptoms; to prevent transmission, though, which is key for herd immunity, the vaccine needs to tamp down viral replication even further. That’s why vaccine efficacy against transmission is expected to be lower than efficacy against symptoms—exactly how much lower is still unclear.

    Efficacy against transmission will probably be the first to erode too. In the long term, immunity in general tends to wane, with protection against severe disease being the most durable. New variants may further knock vaccine efficacy down a rung or two. A vaccine that might have protected a recipient from getting infected with the original virus might now protect only against symptomatic infection. That’s still good for the vaccine recipient but not so good for herd immunity: The recipient could now carry enough virus to asymptomatically transmit it to others.

    This pattern has biological explanations. First, the location of immunity matters. Respiratory viruses such as the coronavirus infect through the nose and throat, but current COVID-19 vaccines are all given as shots into arm muscle. These vaccines elicit a strong immune response and high levels of antibodies, also known as titers, inside the body—but not necessarily in the mucous membranes of the nose and throat, which are the first line of defense against the coronavirus. “It’s possible that over time, as titers fall away, you start to get infections in the upper respiratory tract,” says Jason McLellan, a biochemist at the University of Texas at Austin. “Hopefully you’re still protected in the lower respiratory tract, preventing pneumonia, the severe disease, and the hospitalization.”

    Second, the type of immunity also matters. After an initial vaccination or infection, antibodies spike in the blood. Antibodies are the fast-twitch part of immune memory that neutralizes invading viruses and prevents infection from taking hold. But as antibody levels fall over time, as is already being documented in COVID-19 survivors, they might lose effectiveness. Another piece of the immune system, T cells, are more stalwart soldiers, important in long-term immunity. They take longer to spring into action, though, so they prevent severe disease but not necessarily infection or transmission.

    What does that mean for the future of COVID-19? One possible scenario is that the disease could follow the path of the four coronaviruses that cause common colds, which frequently reinfect people but rarely seriously. In one study that tried to infect and then reinfect volunteers with one of these common-cold coronaviruses one year apart, some of the volunteers indeed got reinfected but without symptoms. They also had detectable amounts of the virus in their nose for a shorter period of time. For COVID-19, “the optimistic future is that there are still infections but they are less frequent than now,” Jesse Bloom, a virologist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, wrote in an email, “and most infected people have something more resembling a cold than a life-threatening infection.” (There is speculation, in fact, that the coronavirus OC43 emerged during an 1889 pandemic before fading into the background as a common cold.)

    Lavine, at Emory, has co-authored a paper modeling how COVID-19 could eventually end up like these cold coronaviruses. The four that already exist are so common that most of us were probably infected with them in childhood. This early encounter lays down initial immunity against these coronaviruses so that reinfections later in life are milder. Frequent reinfection, when immunity fades and the cold coronavirus evolves, may also update that immunity.

    COVID-19 is clearly and dramatically more deadly for older patients. We might think of the vaccines, then, as a replacement for the immunity that adults never got to build against COVID-19 as children. But because this is a new coronavirus, Lavine cautions about uncertainties that remain, especially in how new variants may continue to evolve and whether immunity first elicited in adulthood is equivalent to immunity first elicited in childhood.

    Kids will likely end up getting COVID-19 vaccines too, at least in wealthy countries where they are available. Lipsitch, at Harvard, notes that severe illness and death from COVID-19 and its associated syndrome MIS-C in kids is still high enough—on the order of the flu—to justify vaccinating children rather than letting natural infections take their course. And even if vaccine protection against transmission is imperfect, including kids in the vaccinated pool will help dampen transmission in the larger community.

    It’s helpful to think of the collective immunity in a community as a dampener rather than an on-off switch, too. Even if the herd-immunity threshold is not reached, every additional person vaccinated is a person who would generally be spreading less virus than if they were not vaccinated. A person exposed to less virus is also a person less likely to get sick, to go to the hospital, or to die.

    In the analogy of the campfire, our current pandemic is a big, raging one. We might not have enough water to douse it completely, and we might not prevent future sparks from catching, but the water we do have will still help. The fire will burn slower and cooler. Every drop of water matters.

    How Phony Coronavirus “Fear Videos” Were Used as Psychological Weapons to Bring America to Her Knees



    If you were online during January 2020 you likely saw the barrage of video clips that were supposedly coming out of China depicting ghastly “Coronavirus” scenes.

    Most of those videos have been quietly wiped off the internet, but back in January and February those grisly videos were a viral sensation and they scared the sense out of Americans.

    The videos captured supposed Coronavirus victims in various stages of pandemic horror. Some showed people foaming at the mouth and collapsing in the streets, while others featured ominous government officials wearing Hazmat suits, hovering over lifeless bodies struck down from the virus.

    It was a virtual buffet of fear-porn, and Americans couldn’t get enough of it.

    Personally, I saw hundreds of those videos. The comments from people sharing the clips would range from sarcastic “Just the flu” type stuff — intended to mock and shame anyone who tried to downplay the seriousness of the virus — to wild conspiracy theories claiming Coronavirus caused brain swelling, spontaneous convulsions, and instant death.

    It was some of the most powerful video propaganda I’ve ever witnessed.

    Imagine being a soccer mom and logging onto Facebook and seeing your sister-in-law’s post of a Chinese man foaming at the mouth and dropping dead, with the caption “Just the flu ????” You keep scrolling down your timeline and see the same clip over and over, and other similar shock videos shared by neighbors, friends, and people you work with.

    You’d lose your mind, and rightfully so. That’s powerful messaging and it had a major impact on the American psyche, day in and day out for two months straight.

    For me, being a suspicious person by nature, it all felt very hysterical, staged, and phony. But at a time when fear, confusion, and distrust were at an all-time high, it was virtually impossible to talk rationally about the virus with friends and family who were sucked in by the “terror propaganda.”

    It’s understandable because even though I didn’t buy into the hype, there was still a nagging voice in the back of my head whispering “what if…”

    And even that quiet little “what if” was tremendously powerful.

    In just two short months Americans were whipped into a fear-frothing frenzy which set the table for the tyrannical lockdowns and mask mandates that would follow. Lockdowns that consumed our nation, pitted neighbor against neighbor, struck down our booming economy, and wiped out small businesses from coast to coast.

    Two years ago, if you would have told Americans they would voluntarily shut down their businesses and lock themselves in their homes they would’ve laughed in your face. But those viral videos laid the groundwork for lockdown acceptance. They were the first of many perfectly-timed events that Americans would use to justify tossing away their rights and livelihood in exchange for harsh restrictions and lockdowns — after all, nobody wanted to foam at the mouth and keel over while shopping for cappuccino makers at Bed Bath & Beyond.

    However, there was one very big problem… little did we know back then that all of those spine-tingling videos were fake.

    That’s right, the beginning of the Coronavirus mass hysteria and the very first building blocks that led to a nation-wide lockdown, the destruction of our economy, and the great global reset was a complete and total hoax.

    You’d think a bombshell like that would concern everyone or at the very least pique the interest of journalists and politicians, right?

    But it didn’t.

    Many people shrugged off the videos, claiming there’s always fake or sensational news online. And they’re right. But this was different. Very different. Those “Chinese fear videos” were hand-picked, edited, and manipulated in order to market a very specific horror story to Americans.

    Those video clips played night and day into the darkest and most personal fears of every single American who watched them.

    And there was a running narrative, as well. It went like this:

    Dear America,

    A deadly virus is coming to get you, and your government will downplay it and tell you it’s “just the flu,” but it’s not. It will kill you and your family.

    Thanks to those videos, millions of Americans didn’t trust President Trump right out of the gate. While he was working to calm the nation, frantic Americans were thinking about all those Chinese people keeling over in the streets. “Why isn’t Trump as frantic and scared as we are,” many people wondered… what was he hiding?

    It all came back to those videos. They set a powerful narrative and programmed countless American minds.

    But who would do this? That’s the million-dollar question.

    Internet trolls are brilliant and have pulled off some mindboggling stunts, but this felt very different from that. This felt highly organized, sophisticated, and had consistent expert messaging peppered with very cunning psychological warfare.

    It looked and felt like a professionally coordinated marketing campaign.

    For me, the answer to the million-dollar question is obvious: the people who did this are the ones who would benefit most from the collapse of the US economy, a return to a globalist agenda, and the removal of President Trump.

    The next logical question is: who has the means, talent, and resources to successfully pull off a campaign like this?

    My theory would go something like this: Some entity, perhaps associated with the Chinese government, weaponized a cache of carefully edited “video clips” and used them as phase one of an intricate “gorilla-type” propaganda war designed to scare the American people into surrendering their lives and livelihoods in an effort to collapse the world’s greatest economy, oust a popular America First President, and reset the globalist agenda. Once these videos were in circulation, it is possible that certain sectors of the American establishment amplified the fear in order to justify the brutal consolidation of power right around the corner.

    I’m not an investigative journalist, and I don’t have the resources to uncover who created, uploaded, and marketed those videos. But together, you and I can look back at some of the fake viral videos and stories from last year, and examine how they were cleverly marketed to the American people to achieve peak fear and submission.

    One of the biggest viral sensations at the start of the COVID pandemic was a collection of videos showing Chinese people keeling over from the virus.

    At the time these videos came out we didn’t know that COVID-19 doesn’t cause people to spontaneously “drop like flies.” I’ve had COVID – a very bad case, actually, that lasted for over three months – and even so, I was still able to stand upright. However, the videos that came out last year told a much different, far scarier story.

    They showed random Chinese people dying in the streets from the virus.

    That video looks particularly menacing and “virusy” thanks to the officials in Hazmat suits.

    That’s a theme you’ll see a lot throughout these videos and images — Hazmat suits. They’re everywhere.

    And speaking of Hazmat suits, when digging around for these clips, I discovered that first-responders in China routinely wear Hazmat suits on the job. It’s part of their uniform.

    However, thanks to TV shows and Hollywood movies, most Americans immediately think of scientists and highly-contagious deadly viruses when they see a Hazmat suit and it instantly legitimizes the claims that are being made. So it’s easy to see how that viral clip would have a major impact on many US citizens.

    The next video was everywhere on social media as well. It claimed to show dead COVIID victims lining the streets and waiting to be picked up like piles of garbage.

    Here’s what a Twitter user tweeted out about the video on February 17th, 2020:

    “Wuhan China. Dead Bodies waiting 4 pickup. Coronavirus NO ordinary Virus. Is it intentionally released BIO WEAPON?



    Imagine watching this video and picturing your city’s “Main Street USA” lined with dead bodies?

    “Coming soon to a town near you…”

    That’s a terrifying image and can really mess with someone’s head.

    However, this was also a lie.

    The video actually shows people sleeping on the streets in Shenzhen, China — a city over 600 miles away from Wuhan, according to the AP.

    However, the imagery in this video and the idea that some “bioweapon” was coming to your town was tremendously powerful.

    Would you voluntarily stay locked inside your home to avoid being struck down by a bioweapon?

    After seeing that video, probably.

    Another popular viral image showed a man supposedly suffering from COVID, who collapsed at the airport.



    These types of photos were everywhere — they fed into a popular “Wuhan/Coronavirus” narrative that showcased people trying but failing to “escape” the city.

    The stories were dramatic tragedy-type tales of victims and scared citizens desperately trying to flee but were either captured or killed by Hazmat officials or they collapsed and died just before they made it out of the city.

    It sounds like a Lifetime movie, right? Very emotional stuff involving the human spirit and the will to live — you can relate, can’t you? Sure you can. These poor people are just like you… bla bla bla.

    Only, they’re not exactly like you, because unlike you, this story isn’t real.

    The man in this photo did not have COVID. In actuality, he was drunk and passed-out according to fact-checker Poynter.

    Another running theme in the “China fear clips” were videos showing authorities (oftentimes listed as “armed doctors” by the person posting the video) violently apprehending or killing COVID victims in order to help save the world.

    Imagine seeing doctors so frightened of a virus that they’re forced to use weapons against innocent sickly victims. It’s unthinkable and terrifying to even imagine, let alone watch it unfold before your own eyes.

    Suddenly, the COVID pandemic felt like a Mad Max movie with apocalyptic themes and “good and evil” trading places.

    The doctors have been made evil by a virus so insidious that it turns heroes into villains — what a plot twist!

    However, the videos that were shared as actual encounters were really just training videos, many of them with actors.

    You have to keep in mind that China is a communist country and they don’t allow just anyone to randomly film things especially involving “government officials,” as we do in the US.

    If something was recorded, it was ok’d by the government.

    But the people who posted these types of videos went to great lengths to make you believe that you were watching a real-life takedown.

    Here’s a sample of the type of “training videos” that were passed off as real encounters.



    One of the most compelling videos is no longer available online.

    When I watched this particular video it had a rather big impact on me. It was definitely one of my “what if…” moments.

    It was a clip of a woman lying dead in the street and the story was that she was shot and killed at the border by doctors as she attempted to flee Wuhan.

    There are those powerful themes again… Lifetime movie meets Mad Max.

    I remember watching it and thinking, could this be true? Is there a virus so awful that doctors who took an oath to save mankind are now murderers?

    Again, what an unthinkable horror and it really made me pause and question myself. Was I not taking this seriously enough? There are so many videos out there… Am I ignoring the ugly truth?

    What if…

    But like all the others, this video was also a lie.

    I was able to locate a screenshot from the video:



    The actual video was real, but it had nothing to do with COVID. It was a well-documented motor-scooter accident involving two teenagers, one of whom tragically died. However, the video was artfully edited to remove the “scooter” from the frame in order to tell a completely different story, with an entirely new narrative and theme.

    From Observers France:

    People all over the world have been sharing a video that they claim shows a woman killed by police in China for trying to escape quarantine for the COVID-19 virus, which has infected more than 70,000 people since it first appeared in Wuhan, China in December 2019. The propagation of this video is evidence of the rising hysteria about the virus online. However, our team took a closer look, and found out that the video itself tells an entirely different story.

    The 21-second video shows a person wearing a yellow jacket and black trousers lying motionless on the ground. The person’s face is covered in blood. In the background someone is screaming, and at the very end of the video a woman runs towards the person on the ground. The video has garnered hundreds of thousands of views on social media, especially Twitter.

    Social media users claimed that the person on the ground was a woman fatally shot by police when she tried to break past the blockade set up to try to contain the virus in Wuzu, a city in Hubei province.

    Zhang W. sent us another version of the video shared online, which is a fraction of a second longer. If you pause the video, you can see that there is a motorbike or scooter lying on its side on the sidewalk a few metres from the person on the ground. Also, at 0’04, you can see that the concrete barrier around a nearby tree has been damaged.

    “Two teenagers were going too fast on their scooters,” explains one of the messages posted in the group alongside the video. “They hit the edge of the road and lost control. The driver died.”

    There were hundreds and hundreds of these types of videos floating around social media — and all of them went viral, and many news outlets and blogs covered them as well… they were everywhere, and they shaped so much of what was yet to come for our country — but they were all fake.

    Yet, even so, nobody in the media or our government is asking who made them and posted them online, and why.

    Their silence speaks volumes.

    But that wasn’t the end… those early videos were just the tip of the psychological warfare. They were just the beginning. Part two quickly kicked in.

    I like to call this the “affirmation phase.”

    Just as the dramatic COVID videos were starting to taper off, a bombshell report from the Imperial College in London splashed on the scene and its findings all but validated the slew of China horror clips that we’d been watching for months.

    The report, which was covered in-depth by The New York Times in April 2020, estimated that as many as 2.2 million Americans would likely die from COVID-19 if we didn’t go into quarantine.

    That’s right, if we didn’t lock ourselves in our homes we would end up like all of those poor Chinese people in those videos.

    Here’s a blip from the NYT piece:

    American officials said the report, which projected up to 2.2 million deaths in the United States from such a spread, also influenced the White House to strengthen its measures to isolate members of the public.

    Imperial College has advised the government on its response to previous epidemics, including SARS, avian flu, and swine flu. With ties to the World Health Organization and a team of 50 scientists, led by a prominent epidemiologist, Neil Ferguson, Imperial is treated as a sort of gold standard, its mathematical models feeding directly into government policies.


    “Gold standard” indeed… By mid-May Mr. Ferguson’s erroneous “model” that predicted millions of deaths would be lining birdcages all over the world.

    But at that time we didn’t know any better. We simply trusted the “gold plan.”

    And if that wasn’t enough to convince you, the COVID catastrophe in Italy was unfolding right before our eyes. The world watched in horror as Italy’s medical system collapsed under the weight of all the sick people.

    Now, as someone who once lived in Italy, I can tell you that they don’t exactly have “red carpet” healthcare to begin with. Much of the medical system in Italy looks and feels as old as the Colosseum. So, the implosion was not all that shocking for those of us familiar with Italy’s hospitals. But to the average American, it was a horror show. And the images coming out of Italy, coupled with the China videos and the “gold standard” report, was enough for most people to throw in the towel and declare “we’re doomed…”

    The COVID fear train was traveling full-steam ahead. All aboard.

    Terrified Americans watched in real-time as Italy’s hospitals buckled — stories began circulating showing COVID patients lying on gurneys under trees, on dirt-covered roads, and in parking lots.

    It was quite a sight to behold.

    Imagine how many Americans pictured themselves or their loved ones on those same outdoor gurneys somewhere in LA, Nashville, or Indianapolis – gasping to take their last breath, waiting for the foam to bubble up and death to snatch them away? It’s a gory picture to paint, but this was the vibe in early Spring of 2020.

    Only, just like the China videos before them, many of the stories coming out of Italy were also fake.

    One viral Facebook post showed a series of photos with slews of hospital patients lined up on gurneys outside with the caption: “This is Italy. There is no more space in hospitals. Think twice before you put your foot outside the door”



    That last line, “Think twice before you put your foot outside the door….” is some top-shelf fear-porn. Would you wander outside the safety of your home if you just saw a line of gurneys under a tree? Probably not.

    However, the image was not from Italy, and it had nothing to do with Coronavirus. The image was actually from Croatia and those patients in the photo were earthquake survivors, so of course, they’re not going to be inside damaged hospital buildings.

    Here’s what the BBC said about that Facebook post:

    The images being shared are genuine, but they are not from Italy.
    A reverse image search reveals they were taken in the Croatian capital, Zagreb, after it was hit by an earthquake on 22 March.
    The most widely shared post seems to have originated in India just as the government there imposed a nationwide lockdown on 25 March.


    And the fake videos and images weren’t just coming out of China and Italy. The US also got in on the fun.

    During a segment on New York’s “overcrowded hospitals,” CBS used B-roll footage from an Italian hospital with a banner that read: “Coronavirus Race to Respond: America’s Epicenter: New York Now Accounts For More Than Half of US Cases.”



    Why did CBS use a hospital in Italy to try and convince Americans that New York was buckling under the demand?

    Another good question that deserves an answer.

    And as a side note to that, Americans had a hard time finding these “overflowing” hospitals… and trust me, they searched and searched. At one point the hashtag #EmptyHospitals was trending on Twitter and videos like this popped up all over the place (most have since been deleted by Youtube):



    As it stands now, we haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of this Coronavirus pandemic plot…it would be the most bizarre story ever told if it wasn’t so obvious what really went down.

    We were purposely bamboozled and tricked into thinking that a virus that caused brain swelling, convulsions, and spontaneous death was coming to our shores, and if we didn’t close our businesses, lock ourselves in our homes, and surrender our liberties millions of us would die.

    That was the message which was delivered loud and clear for two months.

    It all started with those early videos out of China. They were the very first building blocks of a coordinated marketing campaign to reboot America.

    Just look at the totality of what happened as a result of the pandemic and ask yourself who benefited most from all of those “perfectly-timed” events. I think if you do that, and also consider the well-crafted fear campaign that was foisted upon all of us, you will agree that my “working theory” holds water.

    While COVID-19 vaccines are very good—even unexpectedly good—at preventing disease, they are still unlikely to be good enough against transmission of the virus, which is key to herd immunity. On the whole, we should expect immunity to be less effective against transmission than against disease, to wane over time, and to be eroded by the new variants now emerging around the world. If vaccine efficacy against transmission falls below the herd-immunity threshold, then we would need to vaccinate more than 100 percent of the population to achieve herd immunity. In other words, it becomes downright impossible.

    Even if herd immunity remains theoretically within reach, 15 percent of Americans say they will never get a COVID-19 vaccine, making that threshold all the harder to hit.
    ....
    It's not "vaccines" but genetic therapy to get body act against a specific protein.
    How do you proof "it works", if 'the virus' is only known as a model and the syndrome has no real boundaries?
    Bear in mind they test for RNA or proteins, that may be completely unrelated to any disease. So no real Test there.

    The whole charade is a thing of gas lighting.

    During the viral epidemic, I did not watch TV much or have no Facebook account. I tried to educate friends that the highest risk groups were over 70 with 2 plus health problems. I talked to older adults who had Corona for 3 weeks but recovered without hospitalization or doctors. If you are over 70, there are higher risks if you have a compromised immune system, smoke or obese. I never got anxious from the news like the constant TV viewers.
