The United States has just declared war against the coronavirus, with President Donald Trump self-proclaiming that he is now a “wartime president.” Whether one believes that the virus must be confronted with maximum aggression by effectively shutting down the country or that the measures already in place are already an overreaction hardly seems to matter as developments over the next several months will likely demonstrate what could have/might have/should have been done. But meanwhile extreme views are proliferating, with Rush Limbaugh detecting a conspiracy by Democrats and communists to destroy capitalism under “the guise of saving lives” while a more restrained but ideologically driven libertarian Ron Paul meanwhile chose to pen an article entitled “Coronavirus Hoax” that personally pilloried as a “chief fearmonger” the government’s widely respected expert on the origin and spread of the disease Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Stalin famously said that the death of one person was a tragedy while the death of a million is a statistic. For both Limbaugh and Paul an epidemic that could kill tens or even hundreds of thousands Americans produces a statistic, of lesser importance than retaining a completely corrupt Wall Street and the individual’s “liberty” to go shopping. Indeed, if greed driven American “vulture” capitalism must be preserved in its current form to protect and empower the rich, radical change might be welcomed by most Americans to include a long overdue genuine health infrastructure safety net.

Meanwhile, more rational and legitimate concerns are being raised by those who are worried about what kind of American democracy and economy will emerge on the other side. They urge the public to be particularly alert to the continuation of emergency practices at both the federal and state levels, permitting respective governments to act autocratically with little in the way of transparency or accountability.

One particular step that has been implemented is the use of cell phone tracking, without the permission of the device owners, to monitor whether separation and isolation measures are being observed by individuals who are out and about, determining whether or not they are obeying the rules in place to penalize congregating in public. It appears that the government and even at least one private presumably Israeli company now have the capability to track hundreds of thousands if not millions of phones simultaneously. This “emergency” abuse of privacy rights amounts to an illegal search and should be challenged on its constitutionality, but the real danger is that the tools used to monitor locations of phones can also be used after the claimed crisis is over to monitor perfectly legal activities of citizens. There should also be the concern that once the technology is developed to track phones a bit more tweaking might well integrate that feature into the National Security Agency’s well-established ability to intercept and record private conversations.

To be sure a different world will emerge post-coronavirus, but one might observe ruefully that some things never seem to change even in the midst of a full-blown global health crisis. Indeed, one might actually suspect that the United States, far from putting its own house in order, has actually used the virus as cover for intensifying its aggressive activities in Asia and Latin America. Along the way, it has also deliberately exploited the disease to punish those countries with which is has an adversarial relationship.

Those promoting the Trump administration’s preferred regime change “maximum pressure” policies are the top White House civilians, namely Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien. The generals, to include Secretary of Defense Mike Esper and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, view the military as already overextended and have so far resisted some of the crazier suggestions but that does not mean that the jingoistic proposals have gone away. They are still on the table being pushed most particularly by Pompeo, and as the president is remarkably easily convinced to take military action, they should be considered to be still viable.

The two proposed courses of action that recently surfaced that must be considered borderline insane both related to Iran. One of them is remarkable in that it creates two new active enemies simultaneously. It consists of a Pentagon order to regional commanders to make preparations to attack and destroy the Iraqi Shi’ite militia Kataib Hezbollah that the O’Brien/Pompeo twofer believe to be tied to Iran and responsible for recent attacks on U.S. bases in Iraq.

Lt. General Robert P. White, the U.S. top commander in Iraq responded immediately to the order, objecting that such a move would risk war with Iran while also increasing pressure on the government in Baghdad to expel American forces from the country. White also observed that he did not have sufficient forces in Iraq and any attack on an Iraqi militia that is technically part of the Iraqi Army would produce open warfare within the borders of a country that is technically an ally. If other militias, to include the numerous and well-armed Badr Army, were to join in the attacks on U.S. bases there would be no way to defend them.

The order is a compromise due to strong disagreements inside the Trump administration over how to punish Iran and its proxy Iraqi militias. Pompeo and O’Brien see the coronavirus, which has hit Iran hard, as an opportunity to destroy the militias while Iran is in no position to react. Per the New York Times, Esper approved the planning only to create options for dealing with Iraq and Iran based on the possibility that attacks against U.S. forces will increase. So far, Donald Trump has warned that Iran or a proxy militia is planning a “sneak attack” on American bases in Iraq and has stated that Iran itself would “pay a very heavy price” if it were carried out. Nevertheless, the president has only agreed to letting the planning continue, though he has also threatened to “go up the food chain,” implying that he is prepared to attack Iran directly if there is any escalation against American troops.

Pompeo and O’Brien, joined by recently appointed Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, have also been promoting a more serious endeavor, namely attacking Iran without warning and without any pretext while it is in its weakened state from the health crisis. Pompeo, O’Brien and Grenell argued that a direct attack on Iran, possibly to include hitting its naval vessels, would so weaken the regime over its inability to defend the country that its leaders would be forced to open negotiations, i.e. to surrender to Washington.

Washington has both increased sanctions and denied medicines to Iran, as well as to Venezuela, to put additional pressure on their governments vis-à-vis the coronavirus pandemic. The Trump Administration has been able to block $5 billion emergency International Monetary Fund loans to both countries while also sending warships to the Caribbean and Persian Gulf to back up the message with force if necessary. The argument being used to punish Venezuela is that it is not clear who represents the legitimate government in the country, whether it is Nicola Maduro, the president, whom Pompeo has labeled a “drug trafficker,” or Juan Guaido, the aspirant to the position of head of state being promoted by the State Department.

Much of Washington’s maneuvering has been taking place under the radar given the cover provided by the crisis over coronavirus. Venezuela aside, most of the planning has focused on Iran, the Trump White House’s most hated adversary and also, perhaps not coincidentally, the perpetual number one enemy of Israel. In another move, on March 27th, the U.S. State Department’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency has announced approval of an $2.4 billion deal with Israel to buy eight KC-46A Pegasus aerial tankers.

The agreement is the first time the United States has sold actual purpose-built tanker aircraft to Israel. The KC-46A Pegasus is can carry 106 tons of fuel to refuel jet fighters and has a range of more than 6,000 miles. It will enable the Israeli Air Force to have sufficient refueling capability to directly attack Iran, its principal regional target. Israel has frequently stated its willingness to attack Iranian nuclear sites and might also exploit the opportunity afforded by the coronavirus and its aftermath to do so.

So, at a time when the American public is clamoring for assurances that everything possible is being done to deal with the coronavirus, some officials in the White House are planning new wars. If one were seeking evidence of just how dysfunctional the Trump Administration is, it would not be necessary to look any further.

    Oy vey! Here’s the problem, bud: None of those people you name, believe in the existence of heaven or hell. As a matter of fact, on of their great prides is that the Goyim of the world are so stuck in the paradigm of the holy spooks they replaced our true culture with. We find it difficult if not impossible to evaluate reality outside the confines of religion, and our moral compass always veers towards whatever the priests say. This is true of all religions, but monotheism in particular has cut the gonads off the human race.
    In this regard, allow me to observe that, like there is no clear distinction between a political party and a criminal mafia organisation, there is absolutely no moral difference between religion and any political theory. Religion is the original political theory. Politicians have always been genocidal bullies. That’s life, stop comp[laining and start finding solutions.
    Once again, I implore everyone to make the Protocols of Zion the go-to text for understanding politics, economics and religious theories. Its all very simple, once one recognises the core doctrine: All property must be collected into one account, and that account will be handed over to Zions One True King. Everything. Every little thing. The stock market is the spoon in our jelly, the hot knife in our butter, the blade in our back.

    Israel has frequently stated its willingness to attack Iranian nuclear sites and might also exploit the opportunity afforded by the coronavirus and its aftermath to do so.

    _Brilliant_ piece of Israeli strategy, right up to its usual standards, which were set by locating the country in Islamic territory. Drops them right into a counterforce scenario.

    On the off chance that this happens, it will put every country in the region on notice that the Israelis will attack nuclear weapons sites. That was save enough to do back when none of the regional countries had nuclear weapons and delivery systems, but it’s not safe now. There are two shot term replies to a credible counterforce scenario:
    * “launch on warning” — missiles can be launched with a five minute or so warning, and command structure supports launch whenever the long range detection system operators get nervous. Which came very close to happening during the Cold War, US and Russia both (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_nuclear_close_calls).
    * “Launch preemptively” — Don’t fool around, just you and everybody else you can get to do it launches at 08:00 next Wednesday. Get enough “everybody else” and the blockades (“sanctions” in political speak) won’t be that bad. Do it quickly, say you set up the alliance today and the strike day after tomorrow, and the target probably won’t get its own strike of. It’s a risky move, but better than being disarmed.

    Either option makes a first nuclear strike against Israel more likely.

    So, Israel has once again destabilized its position. Really, I shouldn’t be surprised.

  14. Pompeo admits that the plandemic is a “live exercise”. Just the same as Sandy Hook and the Boston Marathon Bombing.

    What is really interesting is at 19 sec Trump says to Pompeo “You should have let us know”. Clearly, Trump has zero control over the Military and Pharma Industrial Complexes, who have now started a covert virus war with China, Iran and Italy.

    This was right about the time Trump stopped calling it the “China Virus”.

    Then we have Xi writing a “Thank you Letter to Bill Gates”

    Why would Xi thank Bill Gates when no vaccine is anywhere on the horizon? Could it be that Gates provided Xi with the plandemic virus?

    If the elite considers the corona virus in America, Europe (and Israel) as “collateral damage”, then that is still possible. Israel has at present only 9006 infected, 60 deaths and 683 recovered. The elite doesn’t care about victims among ordinary people.

    Thanks for this exceptionally important video. It’s very strong evidence that we’re witnessing a Deep State coup d’etat involving all the TV news shows from Fox to CNN and CBS as coordinated, cooperating elements in the Plannedemic. The President appeared very nervous slipping in that exposé sotto voce, which is strong evidence he’s being coerced or his family threatened. Pompeo needs to be tarred, feathered, and run out of DC all the way back to Israel where he gets his orders from.

    Thank you. This short video needs to be seen everywhere on this planet and now. Could there be more convincing proof that we’re witnessing a Deep State coup d’etat? given that the President appeared very nervous slipping that exposé in sotto voce. It simultaneously proves that all the TV news from CNN to Fox to CBS are in on it. Watching even a few minutes of the Xerox-scripted propaganda makes that clear enough. I also wonder if Fox News isn’t turning against the President by its now constant positioning of Cuomo as “America’s Governor.”

    It’s clear that israeloamerica intends to increase their aggression against Iran and are making preparations for this.

    U.S. Confirms Deployment Of Patriot Missiles In Iraq. Iran Prepares For Conflict In Straight Of Hormuz

    https://southfront.org/u-s-confirms-deployment-of-patriot-missiles-in-iraq-iran-prepares-for-conflict-in-straight-of-hormuz/

    “The US Central Command officially confirmed deployment of Patriot air defense systems in Iraq. However, the US military announced that it will not provide “providing status updates as those systems come online” for security reasons. At least two Patriot batteries are now located in at the US military bases of Ayn al-Assad and Erbil. Two more Patriot batteries will reportedly be deployed soon.

    As part of its plan to redeploy forces to larger, more fortified bases, the US evacuated its troops from the al-Taqaddum Air Base in the province of al-Anbar. It became the fourth US military facility abandoned in Iraq within the last few weeks. The previous ones were located in al-Qaim, Kirkuk and al-Qayyarah.

    Iraqi sources say that the US actions demonstrate that Washington is preparing for a new round of military confrontation with Iran and its allies in the region. Recently, President Donald Trump stated that the US was expecting attacks by Iranian-led forces on US troops and facilities, claiming that Iran will ‘pay price’ for this. Following the statement, Iran deployed additional anti-ship missiles and multiple rocket launchers on the Qeshm Island in the Strait of Horumz.”

    Pulling forces back from less defensible bases to fewer, better fortified bases (which now are being reinforced with patriot batteries) is a strong sign of intent to up the aggression against Iran. It’s not the preparations of a gradual pull out from Iraq, that the trump regime has been falsely claiming is their eventual aim. The reduction of bases reduces targets the militias can attack in response to israeloamerican aggressive moves against Iran, while the addition of air defense elements reduces the effectiveness of Iranian counterattacks (or rather, is intended to reduce it).

  21. Thank you, Philip, for another informative look at Zio-Washington’s rabid allies and rabid obsessions. This peculiar synergy in Washington never ceases to amaze.

    Allow me to confess that I do have a soft spot for Ron Paul and his bold rejection of Big Government’s attempt to extinguish this year’s flu season by cancelling the US economy. Granted, many lives are at stake. But there are more than a few immunologists and pathologists out there who reject the view that COVID-19 posses an existential health risk. For example:

    https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2020/04/04/the-coronavirus-and-galileo-an-interview-with-a-italian-nano-pathologist-dr-stefano-montanari/

    Keep in mind that, like Ron Paul, Sweden (as well as Iowa, S. Dakota, N. Dakota, Arkansas and Nebraska presently) are taking a more-restrained approach to dealing with this virus. These political entities are encouraging people to self-quarantine if they like. But it’s all voluntary. At the same time, these non-conforming states are also permitting individuals to also go to work, conduct their daily affairs, see a movie, go to a park, meet friends for a drink (while they observe social distancing) and to do so legally and without risk of prosecution. At-risk groups (sick and elderly) are being encouraged–not forced–to self-quarantine. Based on what I know, I like these normalized strategies.

    So why not let the ‘laboratories of democracy’ conduct these tests?

    Besides, polls indicate that most Americans are far more concerned about their jobs and incomes than the threat of a seasonal virus that, as of today, has killed just a fraction of the 61,000 Americans who, for example, died of influenza in 2017-18. Coronavirus-phobia has IMHO gone way over-the-top. Has the anti-Trump Derangement Syndrome mutated to a new phobia?

    As for the unrelenting and ongoing Zio-American offensive against Iraq and its helpless citizens, does Israeli-American cruelty never end?

    How do these distorted, pro-Zionist policies get made in the first place? After all, Iran seeks no war with America? It simply demands to be treated with dignity and respect. Is that unreasonable?

    Why is US power being used to crash Iran’s economy?

    Who/what keeps these needless but simmering hostilities aflame? (These are rhetorical questions)

    Obviously, it is the same malignant force that you have identified many times previously. I commend your bold and brilliant analyses.

    Incredibly, American power is still being harnessed by a foreign state to impose suffering, humiliation and hardship on innocent peoples who do not deserve such treatment. This global conspiracy is a criminal enterprise.

    Corruption in Washington (as well as corruption throughout our mass media) is why this outrage continues.

    In this troubled time, when ‘cash is king’, those willing to donate the most cash get to play king–at least during an election cycle.

    America’s behind-the-scenes royalty includes men named Soros, Sabin, Singer, Sussman, Spielberg, Bloomberg, Adelson, Abraham and Pritzker. There are quite a few others. They give generously and they give consistently. Why? Because they expect and demand something in return. Even an independent, second-tier billionaire like Trump has come to understand this fact. Now he’s joined forces with the greater power: Washington’s deeply-kosher Deep State.

    This ongoing conundrum accounts for the unrelenting Zio-American torment of Iran, Palestine, Syria–as well as a few other anti-Zionist hold-outs. Conquest takes patience. Israel has the time.

    Cleverly, US-made ‘policies’ that damage anti-Zionist states and individuals have been crafted, for decades, by pro-Israel donors, lawyers, and political operatives. Why is it that Israel always prevails in Washington?

    Zionist mega-money coupled with a galaxy of lobbyists are the two aces up Israel’s sleeve.

    But their ‘full house’ includes three kings: King myth (Holyhoax), King yarn (chosen people) and King transmitter (Hollywood).

    In Washington-land, this combination is what’s called a winning hand. It never fails.

    Adding to that, Zio-Washington has maneuvered itself into gaining unrivaled access to US financial aid as well as America’s unimaginably fearsome, powerful, and technologically-advanced military machine; a powerhouse that is ready and willing to destroy any impudent upstart that dares challenge US hegemony or the precious security of our special ally way over yonder in the Holy land. Kaboom!

    A hyper-power like the US can now easily whack entire countries. We possess the technology and will to do it. Not much can be done to thwart it. This gives plucky Israel quite a bit of leverage.

    Trump may openly despise, defame and detest the ‘liberal media’, but he will never go after–or even identify–the toxic cabal of ‘Jewish editors, pundits, and owners’ who fund, employ and enable the cabal of Trump-haters who nest undisturbed in all facets of American mass media.

    These bleak and disturbing facts explain why there’s rising global resentment against organized Jewry.

  22. For both Limbaugh and Paul an epidemic that could kill tens or even hundreds of thousands Americans produces a statistic, of lesser importance than retaining a completely corrupt Wall Street and the individual’s “liberty” to go shopping.

    Easily said for someone undoubtedly better positioned to weather an economic downturn than 99% of Americans.

    Yes, the US (and indeed the world) economy might have a sizable corrupt parasitic Criminal Elite profiting immensely from it, but you don’t go killing the host to get at the parasites.

    With respect, Ship Track, while I agree that Pompeo should be tarred, feathered and sent 7/8 of the way to Israel then disembarked, that short clip does not provide context for Pompeo’s statement, “This is a live exercise,” and for Trump’s soto voce reaction.

    This transcript of the March 20, 2020 press briefing reveals that Pompeo was attacking the Chinese for not releasing a “dataset” to enable other countries and the CDC to become aware of and prepare for a health threat:
    https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/remarks-president-trump-vice-president-pence-members-c-oronavirus-task-force-press-briefing/

    THE PRESIDENT: Please, go ahead.

    Q [reporter] I have two questions. The first is to Secretary Pompeo. NewsHour has learned that the CDC picked up that there was some sort of virus happening in Wuhan — the coronavirus happening in Wuhan as early as December. When did the CDC start letting other agencies know that there was something in China happening — that this coronavirus was happening? And then when did the whole-of-government approach start to happen?

    SECRETARY POMPEO: So I’ll let the CDC — or, Dr. Fauci, do you want to talk to that?

    . . .
    SECRETARY AZAR: So we were alerted by some discussions that Dr. Redfield, the Director of the CDC, had with Chinese colleagues on January 3rd. It’s since been known that there may have been cases in December, not that we were alerted in December.

    Q Then, Mr. President, the other question I had for you. When —

    THE PRESIDENT: Excuse me — we’ll do it in a second. Let Mike — he has to get back — he has to get back to work.

    SECRETARY POMPEO: May I just say — may I just say one more thing? There’s been some discussion about China and what they knew and when they knew it. And I’ve been very critical. We need to know immediately. The world is entitled to know. The Chinese government was the first to know of this risk to the world. And that puts a special obligation to make sure that data — that data gets to our scientists, our professionals. This is not about retribution. This matters going forward. We’re in a — we’re in a live exercise here —

    THE PRESIDENT: Should have —

    SECRETARY POMPEO: — to get this right.

    THE PRESIDENT: Should have let us know.

    SECRETARY POMPEO: We need to make sure that even today, the datasets that are available to every country, including datasets that are available to the Chinese Communist Party, are made available to the whole world. It’s an imperative to keep people safe.

    We talk about the absence of datasets, not being able to make judgments about what to do. This is absolutely critical. This transparency, this real-time information sharing isn’t about political games or retribution. It’s about keeping people safe.

    And so when you see a delay in information flowing from the Chinese Communist Party to the technical people who we wanted to get into China immediately to assist in this, every moment of delay connected to being able to identify this risk vec- — the risk vectors, creates risk to people all around the world.

    And so this is why it’s not about blaming someone for this, this is about moving forward to make sure that we continue to have the information we need to do our jobs.

    Given that just prior to this exchange, Trump and Pompeo had engaged in an exercise in mutual adoration just short of hugging and kissing, it is reasonable to assume that Trump’s comment, “Should have let us know” was not directed at Pompeo but at the Chinese, regarding Wuhan.

    I have a custom-fitted tinfoil hat, but even I have to concede that Pompeo’s comment, “This is a live exercise,” does not refer to some plans that he and his evil cohort (cough cough Bibi cough) deployed, nor is Pompeo demanding information merely out of a sense of “retribution” or pointing fingers, but rather to the reality of having to deal, in real time, with a serious health threat.

    Pompeo and O’Brien see the coronavirus, which has hit Iran hard, as an opportunity to destroy the militias while Iran is in no position to react.

    These criminals, who should be tried and put to death instead of sitting in the Whore House, think Americans are cravenly stupid (they may actually be right on that score): US is having a far greater COVID-19 problem than Iran, but if that does not stop the US from planning an aggressive war half-way around the planet, why would it stop Iran from defending itself? Of course these murderous fiends count on the American public not ever questioning anything, which, again, is a fairly valid assumption.

    Pompeo, O’Brien and Grenell argued that a direct attack on Iran, possibly to include hitting its naval vessels, would so weaken the regime over its inability to defend the country that its leaders would be forced to open negotiations, i.e. to surrender to Washington.

    Sure, and by that “infallible logic”, all China need do to the US, suffering an even greater Illuminati virus problem, is launch a direct attack on the US, which would so weaken the regime over its inability to defend the country that its leaders would be forced to open negotiations, i.e. to surrender to China.

    Again, these type of simpleton, patently false arguments is what the monsters who sit in the Whore House make up in order to have free reign to engage in the orgy of murder and blood-letting they so desperately crave.

    Pompeo’s true calling is to be swinging by the neck until dead, dead, dead.

  30. President Duterte of the Philippines wants out of the defense pact with our country. Trump’s reaction: that would save us a lot of money. The tone is altogether different when it comes to Iraq. Not a word about saving even more money if we pull out of Iraq.

    Our criminal occupation continues with no sign of abating. The administration’s reaction: whispered death threats to Iraqi leaders and the threat of crippling sanctions. This despite the overwhelming majority of Iraqis wanting us out of their country. And for good reason. We have destroyed a once prosperous secular country, turning it into a failed state, Saddam’s dictatorial rule notwithstanding. The same could be said of Libya.

    We have become a nation led by international gangs of criminals shamelessly doing Israel’s bidding. We “the people” cannot wash our hands of responsibility in the actions of our blood thirsty leaders in their unforgivable crimes against humanity.

    So far, Donald Trump has warned that Iran or a proxy militia is planning a “sneak attack” on American bases in Iraq and has stated that Iran itself would “pay a very heavy price” if it were carried out.

    Obama was also fond of warning that the next bogus chemical attack against Syrians would be a red line crossed. Sure enough, within a week that attack would happened and the Syrian White Helmets just happened to be there and just happened to have a fully charged camera to record the false flag.

    Our special ally Israel is chomping at the bit to get its colony, the former USA to attack Iran. Even if that doesn’t happen directly, the Zionist Apartheid regime knows they can get the fireworks started by attacking Iran and when she responds, the American Knesset–formerly the US Congress–will be demanding that Humpty Trumpty attack Iran for being so reckless in defending itself.
    Add in Princess Bimbo sitting on Daddy’s lap and crying about those poor Khazar babies being in danger and off we go to another long, drawn-out ME that is a big negative for the US but which Israel will benefit from tremendously.

    A war with Iran would mean many American casualties, but that is a sacrifice Israel is willing to make.

  35. ‘…For both Limbaugh and Paul an epidemic that could kill tens or even hundreds of thousands Americans produces a statistic…

    There are three hundred and fifty million Americans. Every year about four million of them die. So we’re talking about a cause of death that may account for one percent or so of that total.

    Moreover, the virus is overwhelmingly killing those who were about to die anyway. So make that a tenth of one percent — people whose lives are actually going to be significantly shortened.

    For that, we’re to wreck the national economy — and no one can even demonstrate that doing so will lower the death toll in the end.

    It would make more sense to ban all cars. After all, the economic impact and inconvenience would be no worse — and it really would save lives, which it’s questionable if all this arm-waving and virtue-signaling over the Corona Virus will do.

    But we’re not going to ban cars. The modest savings in life just wouldn’t offset the trouble, expense, and inconvenience of doing so. How much truer it should be in the case of this Corona nonsense.

    F___ me. What’s going to happen if there’s ever an outbreak of a serious disease? I guess we’ll just have to blow everything up and try to set fire to the ruins.

    NEVERTHELESS, the even larger context is that in a press briefing on Mar 20, Pompeo gave Trump the opportunity to shift culpability to China’s “not providing dataset” for failure of USA to respond in a timely and appropriate manner to a health threat.

    The day before, on Mar 19, Anne Schuchet, CDC’s go-to person on epidemics / viruses, was to have been interviewed by Andy Serwer, Editor in Chief at Yahoo Finance. The engagement had been approved by HHS, but was abruptly canceled by VP Mike Pence at the last minute.

    the excuse for doing nothing as that “the virus is overwhelmingly killing those who were about to die anyway”

    I haven’t heard anybody saying “do nothing”, so it looks like you have fallen for the hysteria.

    But if you cannot distinguish between a disease that kills those with one foot in the grave, and those that kill the young, then you really cannot distinguish between anything.

    The fact is, given that the vulnerable group greatly overlaps the (economically) unproductive group, provides (benign) policymakers with wonderful options that would not exist were the disease equally applicable to all.

    In particular, you divvy up the population into two groups of people: the vulnerable (generally the old, but also some middle-aged with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, cancer, liver disease, etc.), and everyone else (of course you cannot make this categorization perfect but you can make it good enough). The only sensible approach is to enable the vulnerable to segregate themselves fully from the others (importantly, including family members, since that is how most people catch it). For example by enabling food deliveries, preventing the non-quarantined from entering their sanctuaries, and also providing them with protective gear in the event they want to leave self-quarantine (subject to appropriate safeguards if they want to return).

    The non-vulnerable continue to work and produce and live their lives, and in a year, the virus will have rolled over them and they will be immune and society will have the so-called “herd immunity”. At that time the segregation can end.

    In the interim, if someone who is vulnerable wants to risk it, despite warnings and plenty of opportunity for a safe zone, that is their choice. If there are no ventilators when they get sick and they need one, that is the result of their choice (though, of course, ventilator production should be a top priority, certainly higher than starting another murderous war for Israel). Last I remember, we called the ability to make one’s own informed choices “FREEDOM” and that was the principle on which this country was, and needs to continue to be, founded.

    The way they are handling this is the worst way possible. The virus will circulate for years, the economy will be destroyed, the middle class will be annihilated, the Big Brother police state will be established. But then, that is the true goal of our psychopathic “leaders”.

    Points to consider:

    – IRGC’s deterence strategy is a sort of mini-MAD doctrine.

    – There is Oil overproduction and US and Russia are making comments about it in their respective propaganda organs.

    – there is the curious case of low visibility for Iran’s Covid-19 fight in the media. Trends seems different in Iran and possibly it is a different strain.

    IFF the Western world’s owners (that’s not you dear reader) have decided that a final showdown is nencessary to iron out historic holdout obstacles to the glorious future planetary regime, this over the top pandemic is an excellent cover for preparing for total war. Possibly this explains the noted “irrational” choices by Western puppets in face of underwhelming numbers and the serious pushback against dissenting voices, including noted scientists.

    And yes, IRGC’s “MAD” doctrine is not looking so symmetric all of a sudden. It would be “wonderful” (say US and Russian leadership) if we could somehow get rid of excess production capacity.

    You have not explained in a coherent manner how “live exercise” fits into blaming China for not ” including datasets that are available to the Chinese Communist Party, are made available to the whole world. It’s an imperative to keep people safe.”

    The fact here is that by late January the entire planet had seen how China was locking down Wuhan, even welding the doors to apartment buildings shut. Meanwhile the US was trying to force China to allow same the CDC psyop team into China who were busy telling Trump and the American people that the flu came from a bat and that it was no threat to the US.

    The truth here is that everyone not living inside the US propaganda bubble is well aware what happened to MH17, the astroturf Hong Kong protests, and the fake white helmet gas attacks in Idlib. So when Pompeo, Bolton or Trump insist that some country allow a covert US deep state propaganda team into their country anybody with any sense would keep them out. The fact that Xi even allowed the CDC into Wuhan is very strong evidence that Xi is in on this entire plandemic.

    So to summarize: No, Pompeo was not referring to anything but how this plandemic is a CIA live exercise, and again, No, Trump was not talking about the Chinese keeping him informed of what awake people across the planet were watching unfold.

  57. For both Limbaugh and Paul an epidemic that could kill tens or even hundreds of thousand produces a statistic.

    No, it produces two statistics – the number that die due to the disease, and the number that die from the economic depression of shutting down the economy by decree. Just look at Russia in the 90s – no virus, but the economic problems killed enough people.

    There is opportunity cost to a full national lock down, and it is not blindingly obvious that it is lower than the opportunity cost of letting the virus run a bit more rampant, but keeping the economy going.

    For one – this is a retired person killer. Yes, those with preexisting conditions are affected too – so quarantine the retired and chronically ill. You get most of the impact against the virus, and you keep the economy going.

    And we have lived in a police state for long enough for the information the state has on us to be actually useful, to us.

    But of course deaths caused by economic misery are silent killers, and corona-aids is oh so great for the tabloids.

    And since our democracy is representative and not participatory – and so led by narcissists – a million who died quietly would not be saved, for just one person who died in a media torrent of emotion.

    That Christian Fundamentalist such as Mike Pompeo, VP Mike Pence, Iran-haters such as Netanyahu wants outright war with Iran is an open secret. Their worldview on Iran and the Middle East is childish and influenced by the distorted Zionist picture. These warmongers want to exploit the corona pandemic to attack another country, which suffers not only from the deadly US sanctions but also from the corona pandemic. Iran can’t get essential medical equipment because of US sanctions. The Trump administration behaves as murderous as the Bill Clinton administration against Iraq.
    US military personnel in Iraq are in the country to train Iraqi military forces to fight their people. To wage war, the US needs more combat troops. The US goal is to provoke an Iran response to use at a pretext to attack the country. Even the assassination of General Qassim Suleimani couldn’t distract Iran’s leadership from its rational and peaceful political path.
    If the irresponsible US leadership is going to attack Kataib Hezbollah, the resistance group, together with other ones, will be ready to retaliate against US occupation forces in Iraq. The plans of Pompeo, Netanyahu, and the other hawks run afoul of what Donald Trump wants: to get out of America’s senseless wars in the Middle East. But Trump is not in charge of what’s going on behind his back.

Dr. Fauci has heaped praise on Moderna and said that a vaccine is the only way to definitively assure the end of the virus. Gates is working on multiple Coronavirus vaccine projects.”

    ….

    “Fauci Is Tight with Bill Gates

    “He’s very good about not overpromising,” Gates said of Fauci in 2018 as Gates worked on a universal flu vaccine. NIAID Council minutes from 2019 show Fauci’s agency identifying a Gates Foundation workshop as being of interest. Gates met with Fauci in 2017 “to discuss research opportunities in global health.” In 2010, Fauci was named to the Leadership Council of the “Decade of Vaccines” Collaboration, which the World Health Organization, Fauci’s agency NIAID, UNICEF, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation convened.”

    In October 2019, Fauci Announced A Partnership Between the Gates Foundation and Fauci’s Agency, In Which The Gates Foundation Pledged To Spend $100 Million

    The American Journal of Managed Care reported on October 28, 2019:

    “The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced plans to invest at least $100 million over the next 4 years to develop gene-based therapies for 2 diseases: HIV and sickle cell disease (SCD). The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (Gates Foundation) will also contribute $100 million to the goal of advancing these potential cures, with an aim toward providing affordable, globally available treatment that will be accessible to patients in low-resource settings.

    “The Global Fund explains, “The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is a key partner of the Global Fund, providing cash contributions, actively participating on its board and committees, and supporting the Global Fund’s advocacy, communications and fundraising efforts. The Gates Foundation has contributed US$2.24 billion to the Global Fund to date, and pledged US$760 million for the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment, covering 2020-2022.””

    Pompeo and O’Brien see the coronavirus, which has hit Iran hard, as an opportunity to destroy the militias while Iran is in no position to react.

    The quality of the intelligence those in command of the USA are receiving is stupendously stupid.

    A few tens of thousands of dead fit soldiers is nothing to Iran. The reality is that the virus was blamed for the death of a vast number of people who were dying or unhealthy. By putting coronavirus on the death certificates, doctors permitted the burial of the bodies without hand-washing them as is normally required for Muslim burials. The religious leaders made a dispensation for this virus. That meant that doctors put “coronavirus” and the death certificate of anyone who had trouble breathing at the end.

    A sure way of forcing the USA to leave the whole region in a hurry is an attack on Iran.

    Why does the US play these games when they can just nuke Iran?

    Iran cannot attack the USA mainland in that event. But all the US military bases in the region would be destroyed.

    Also, the Hezbollah will destroy Israel. The heart of Israel is an area that is 50 km by 20 km. Hezbollah alone could put 100,000 rockets into that area. Many of these rockets have terminal guidance and are highly accurate. If the Israelis let off nuclear weapons in Lebanon, they would get a good deal of the radiation.

    I hardly need add that no one in Europe will accept Jewish refugees if they start a nuclear war. That game is over. Europe would be relieved that the threat of Israeli nuclear attack is over. That is what keeps so many European politicians onside.

    How do you know that New York City hospitals are mainly empty?

    The day that the governor of my state declared “Lockdown,” I walked to the major hospital 1/2 mile down the street and looked around. It was around 6:30 in evening, should have been bustle of visitors, shift change, etc.
    Garages: EMPTY
    Employee shuttle buses: 3 in a row, drove away with no passengers.
    NO vehicles at all in the Emergency bay
    I saw an employee (non-professional, maybe porter or administrative) leaving the building and asked him if the hospital was crowded: “No, it’s empty. They’re talking about laying us off.”

    On the walk back home I mentioned that encounter to several millennials who were walking dogs. They MillSplained the situation to me: “He’s non-essential; the hospital is being prepped for an inflow of seriously ill virus patients.”

    If so, it hasn’t happened yet; the hospital is still a ghost town.

    Except that — hospitals that house discrete but at very expensive treatment wings or units, like radiation oncology centers where specialized equipment costs upwards of $10 million/unit (including installation), patients are scheduled, consulted, evaluated and treated (initial consult + first preliminary diagnostic visit = $2000). A course of surgery and radiation therapy for, say, a prostate cancer patient, not atypically >65 years old, can cost $40,000 – $50,000, and Medicare + supplemental insurance pays approx. 90% of that tab: hospitals NEED that revenue and are keeping active the queue of seniors requiring certain high-dollar medical treatments. This is all Out Patient!

    Prostate cancer is not class-specific nor identity-biased: the guy who retired from years as a janitor is as likely to require cancer treatment as the hedge fund manager, and Medicare kicks in for both of them.
    (Speaking of hedge-funds: there are investment companies that invest solely in medical technologies, facilities and procedures. In one such fund, a young manager killed himself and his close colleague was arrested and will be tried for insider trading or something. There is very big money that demands protection in the merciful art of healing the sick.)

    So the line that says, Throw the seniors overboard, save the economy for the young, is as simplistic as it is, hmmm, dysfunctional in the moral, human sense.

    Tucker Carlson had an excellent rant against Fauci last Friday night, available on YouTube. One day Fauci predicts the sky is falling, the next day, as in the article he recently penned in the New England Journal of Medicine, he claims that Covid-19 may be no worse than the seasonal flu.

    But Fauci seems to exist at the podium to tamp down Trump’s optimism, and contradict him every chance he gets. Why 79 year-old Fauci remains Trump’s top medical expert is a mystery to me. Fauci is older than both Biden and Bernie, so I’d suggest his time has passed.

    I don’t agree that Trump was chiding Pompeo for not informing him of some scheme being carried out by State: while it may be true that State / Pompeo is running his own agenda, in league with others, that is not what Trump was responding to. Trump was affirming Pompeo’s statements shifting culpability to Chinese. No one said that that culpability is accurate, only that Pompeo was providing that distraction-diversion.

    Yes, Pompeo is a liar and a scumbag.

    I’m working on a Unified Theory of the Corona crime.

    The crude timeline posted above provided the germ of a unified hypothesis, based on the timing of
    a. initial reliance on CDC
    b. removal of CDC
    c. CDC replaced by Birx and Fauci (I had thought CDC was shut out because their spokesperson is Jewish, and she was to be kept in background, and that Birx and Fauci were fall-guys, patsies, but they may be more deeply implicated, based on their relationships to Gates)
    c1. National emergency declared
    c1 a. Businesses shut down
    c2. Memes deployed: “flatten the curve;” “social distance;” “Stay at home, Save a life;” “masks” “ventilators,” and “PPE” enter the common glossary
    c2 a. be aware that Peter Thiel, a close advisor to Trump, has studied Mimetics extensively
    d. Trump signs 5G legislation
    e. Trillions dollar bail out packages

    To fill out the hypothesis, additional datapoints should include
    — when did Gantz join forces with Bibi; (track Pompeo visits to Israel)
    — correlate staff changes (a thru e, above) with stock market swings

    With Senate and House out of town, who else is on Pompeo’s “Let’s attack Iran” team? What communication is he having with think tanks, i.e. FDD, Kagans, Wurmsers, Boot, Cotton, etc.?

    What have Schiff, Nadler, Schumer and Pelosi been up to?

    The problem with Organized Jewry is that it thinks that the Torah/Tanakh has not “ended”.

    Anyone who thinks it “ended” is ” anti-Semitic”.
    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2017/01/04/tiny-martin-luther-toy-triggers-claims-anti-semitism/96150612/

    All was apparently going fine until Micha Brumlik, a retired Frankfurt University education professor and respected Jewish commentator, wrote last June that the popular toy was “anti-Jewish, if not even anti-Semitic.”

    The problem, he said, was the inscription on the open pages of the Bible that the Playmobil Luther holds. On the left is written in German: “Books of the Old Testament. END.” The right page says: “The New Testament, translated by Doctor Martin Luther.”

    Why was the word “END” written so prominently, Brumlik asked. “Theologically, there can be no other reason than that the ‘Old Testament’ and its validity should be seen as ended and superseded,” he wrote in the Berlin newspaper tageszeitung.

    This is how and why the Torah/Tanakh is endlessly recycled in our time.

    https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/961561/jewish/Positive-Commandment-187.htm

    Since these seven nations no longer exist4 a person could think that this commandment is not noheg l’doros [for all generations5]. But only someone who does not understand the concept of noheg l’doros would think such a thing. A command that can be fulfilled without being limited to a certain time is considered noheg l’doros, because if the act would become possible in any generation, the mitzvah would apply. When G‑d will totally destroy the descendants of Amalek and remove them for all time — as will be speedily in our days, as G‑d (exalted be He) promised,6 “I will wipe out the memory of Amalek” — will we say that the mitzvah to wipe out the memory of Amalek7 was not noheg l’doros? This is not true, for in any generation when one finds a descendant of Amalek, he must be killed. The same applies to this mitzvah of killing all descendants of the seven nations, which is a milchemes mitzvah. In every generation we are required to uproot them and search afterthem down to the last individual. We did this until King David destroyed them completely, with the survivors being scattered and assimilated among the nations until they disappeared.

    This is the biggest problem of our time. The Torah/Tanakh is “ended”. It is over. This childish game of playing Torah/Tanakh on the world is destroying our planet.

    He was so passionately obsessed on his hating on China for not telling the US “how bad it was” that he made a freudian slip. It happens all the time. The thing with Trump, like Bush III, is that every thing he says is one massive Freudian slip. Just like when Trump said “You should have let us know” after Pompeo stumbled over “planned exercise”.

    How could Trump have been referring to the Chinese using the singular “you” when he was looking at Pompeo and referring to Pompeo’s last statement, “planned exercise”.

    The United States has just declared war against the coronavirus, with President Donald Trump self-proclaiming that he is now a “wartime president.”

    This international virus, whatever its actual origins, is an ideal cover to ease humanity into a world war, each ‘side’ publically blaming the other for it’s introduction.

    But meanwhile extreme views are proliferating, with Rush Limbaugh detecting a conspiracy by Democrats and communists to destroy capitalism under “the guise of saving lives”..Indeed, if greed driven American “vulture” capitalism must be preserved in its current form to protect and empower the rich, radical change might be welcomed by most Americans to include a long overdue genuine health infrastructure safety net.

    In regards to the Right leaning Limbaugh and his remarks regarding Capitalism, I see him as loyal, albeit ultimately controlled, opposition. The same goes for his loyal ‘mainstream media’ Leftist opposition.

    And while I certainly think there’s plenty of responsibility to share for the present sad state of world affairs, I’ll take a little bit of time here to explore some of the more purely Anglo-Saxon aspects, which in part does involve the aforementioned Capitalism.

    [MORE]

    If this is an apparent (and, I submit, manufactured and broadly controlled) Hegelian dialectic at play since 1776 and 1789/1848 between a Capitalist thesis and Communist anti-thesis, the first with an artificial hyper-individualism, the second with a closely paralleling artificial hyper-collectivism, it would make perfect sense that on the road to the global Multi-cultural synthesis of the two, an event it seems ever more likely to be heralded by WWIII, that we should expect to see the ‘Fall of Capitalism’.

    The ‘official’ demise of Capitalism would parallel the ‘Fall of Communism’ of thirty years ago, the reason for both economic and political ideologies ‘fall’ will have been to clear the path for their final ‘convergance’ in global Multi-Culturalism, and the ushering in of an (in theory) united world state/empire, historically referred to by both Capitalists and Communists as the ‘United States of the World’.

    Just as with the purported ‘Fall of Communism’, when Capitalism officially goes under with much fanfare, there would still be gigantic chunks of Capitalism around, and most likely in the senior position in relation to what remains of Communism, 1776 having occurred first, after all, as opposed to 1789 in this timeline.

    As an all encompassing world state/empire, which at least in theory is to be a global ‘democratic republic’, has been a long term project of the British Empire, the City of London historically has been it’s arbiter (ie the referee) of the described and much related Hegelian dialectic since it’s late 18th century inception. The British Empire, and, or, more recently, the United States, has been the military ‘muscle’ to enforce the City’s diktats in relation to this. When Napoleon and Hitler got ‘out of line’ in regards to this dialectic, amongst other ‘rebels’, they were crushed.

    Seeing the 1776 Revolution as a planned ‘false split’ between the US and UK, despite the sincerity of most of those fighting (and often enough, dying) on the ground, and the United States itself as the planned direct continuation of the British Empire, as certain writings, past and present, suggests, helps to explain much.

    How many are aware that Anglo-Saxon ‘Founding Fathers’ of the Capitalist United States, such as Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, and apparently Benjamin Franklin too, were also quite involved with the French Communist revolution of 1789 as well?

    And, if not, why not?

    The widespread belief in this manufactured and contrived centuries old dialectic is the power of the Big Lie.

    Humanity has been being ‘played’ since 1776 and 1789.

    ‘Thus the lines are drawn. The choirs are marshalled on each wing of the world’s stage, Russia leading the one, the United States the other.

    I still have my doubts about it’s being a Freudian slip. I get the anti-China bandwagon that parades around DC five times a day. Change “China” to “Russia” and you have a good idea of who was playing THAT tune for the last three years. It’s disgraceful, not least because both examples are reckless and false demonizations of great and powerful countries whose behavior is the exact opposite of the dumbass regime-change garbage of which the U.S. is guilty.

    On top of which, it’s reckless and stupid hardly 100 years after the end of the first mass slaughter of the 20th century. That war alone should have made any statesman afterwards move heaven and earth to avoid armed conflict but here we are with arrogant asses like Pompeo flinging wild charges around.

    I think China warrants caution but its own military preparations can hardly be said to be without grounds. You’d have to be on life support not to have a for profound suspicion of U.S. intentions or imbecility. Given the U.S. lies in the run up to Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria I’ll go out on a limb and say “China bad” is in the same league of juvenile misrepresentation as “Assad the Butcher,” “Gaddafi the assailant of his own people,” “living Constitution,” “propositional nation,” and “Israel our bestest friend in all the world.”

    Trump is indeed the poster boy for stunningly shallow conceptual thinking. He’s come into his own with his virus briefing in the last few days and more power to him but I’ve yet to hear him articulate a coherent principle, such as “the carefree activities of AntiFa are anathema to any orderly society” or “the censorship of the tech giants is unacceptable to a free people” or “media/manufacturing monopoly is unacceptable to a healthy capitalist nation” or “uncontrolled immigration is an invasion addressable under Art. IV, Sect. 4.”

    As to your concluding list I can only say amen. We live in a porridge of propaganda where the public debate exists only to establish that Up is Down. We’re directly responsible for civilian deaths of over 500K and massive destruction in Syria but Syria’s sold as some kind of sacred national obligation on our part to crusade against Assad, the mad dog ophthalmologist.

But it is now an interest of the Jews to have a large and powerful military establishment in the United States… American Jews who care about the survival of the state of Israel have to say, no, we don’t want to cut the military budget, it is important to keep that military budget big, so that we can defend Israel.

    Israel must not only survive, but thrive and if that’s on the carcass of America, so be it.

    Why is US power being used to crash Iran’s economy?

    Haven’t you been paying attention over the last 30 years. Iraq under Saddam, Venezuela, and Iran decided to sell oil other than in US dollars.
    Saddam saw the bulk of his oil going to Europe. Why not sell it to Europeans in Euros?
    Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution traded oil to Argentina and Brazil for food, and Cuba for supplying and training doctors.
    Iran started an oil bourse, trading in multiple currencies and gold.

    All of the above deprive the US the capability to freeze assets when trade is conducted in the grossly over valued USD. It also cuts out the Bank of International Settlements from taking their cut on currency exchange. In short, it’s the bankers, just as it was in 1933.

    These countries must lick the Fed’s arse. Refusal to do so will have consequences.

    The fly in the ointment is that China has informed the WHO of their Patient Zero.

    Meanwhile, Chinese officials are still trying to trace the epidemic back to its source in China. The first coronavirus case was reported to the WHO on December 31 and has been linked to Wuhan’s Huanan Wholesale Seafood Market. However, a new study published by a team of Chinese scientists last week said the virus might have been imported from somewhere else.

    The first known Covid-19 patient, a male who showed symptoms on December 8, had been discharged but said he was not at the Huanan market, the Wuhan government said in a Weibo post on Wednesday.

    https://www.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/3052558/coronavirus-hunt-patient-zero-and-why-worlds-health-may-depend
    South Korea and Iran have identified their Patient Zero.
    Meanwhile, China started asking the US around March 20 about its Patient Zero, and there has been no response.
    With so many renowned epidemiologists and virologists, particularly in Germany and France, opposing the official narrative of the danger of the virus, it becomes evident that something else is afoot.

    Mr. Giraldi,
    Here is my broken record:
    People with poor immune systems show symptoms of viral and bacterial infections. Older people and people with underlying medical conditions are, generally speaking at higher risk. There are also large numbers of people who are not old and do not have underlying medical conditions, that have poor immune systems, but they do not know they have weak immune systems.
    Turn your mind back to your elementary school days, before polio and measles vaccines. Measles was rampant, but not everyone in your class got them, or at minimum, they did not show symptoms. The same for Chicken Pox or Mumps. While Polio was decimating some populations, it was not in others. I personally knew six people who were diagnosed with Polio, of which 4 were in my school. I did not contract it, nor did any kids in my school, other than the 4.

    The virus is real, but it is really no different than other viruses or opportunistic pathogens. Some people will be more susceptible and suffer or die. Others will not. In normal cold and flu season, I take steps to mitigate my susceptibility, but I do not put my life on hold. The hibernation mentality at present, makes even that difficult to do. If I get sick and die, that is life. If someone is forced to be cooped up, become depressed, and offs him or herself, that is not life, that is tyrrany.

    Hate to be Johnny One Note: it’s intriguing that Schuchat, who had a reputation as “the voice of CDC in a virus crisis,” was silenced and replaced by Birx and Fauci who, as Ship Track demonstrated in #64, has been pictured with- and has business ties to Bill Gates, and all have financial interests in vaccines.

    OTOH Redfield, head of CDC, is also in the photo with Fauci and Gates: Gates who has inserted himself in their circles. They were seduced and corrupted?

    But there are several more rings in this circus: was financial meltdown the primary goal of the coronavirus pandemic, or an opportunistic afterthought (after hasty brainstorming that resulted in replacing CDC w/ Fauci & Birx).

    Don’t forget Benny Gantz’s sudden change of heart alliance with Netanyahu, after many months of standoff. It occurred just as US Congress put $2trillion and counting multiplying in the hands of co-ethnic Mnuchin. Happy Passover.

    Exploiting a vacuum or situation of instability as Pompeo may perceive exists in Iran is so basic that even someone as untrained in strategic thinking as I am can see the opportunity — if one is a sociopath, which Pompeo is.
    btw: I think it’s a mistake to characterize his motivations as coming from “Christian fundamentalism”. He’s a sociopath. His form of moral sickness does not seem to be dressed in faux religiosity, as does Pence’s: Pompeo is an addict; he believes he’s all – powerful, so powerful that he can “lie, cheat and steal” and get away with it forever.
    Alcoholics and drug addicts and even those addicted to petty crime think they can drink/drug/steal and that those behaviors are not morally wrong but will solve their problems forever, until they hit the wall: almost all addicts of all kinds hit the wall sooner or later.
    A critical question is how much damage they do to others around them before that happens.

    And in the case of Pompeo, there’s a question of what can be done to stop him: if we on this Forum understand and foresee the evil that he intends, what can we do? What is off-limits to do to stop him? We know the Jewish response to that question: Rise and Kill First.

    (In my opinion, Pence’s form of addiction is raw ambition cloaked in faux righteousness/religion; he does not stand on genuine moral principles. I don’t think he’s quite as dangerous as Pompeo. )

    Jews have been on a rampage, destroying one Christian nation after the other since shortly after Emancipation in 1789.

    Iran is in the immediate cross-hairs, but in a real sense, so is the United States of America. The threat to USA may be even greater because we do not realize we are under existential threat of obliteration by zionists.

    So again: what is off-limits to do to stop the evil that Pompeo — and zionists — intend toward Iran and toward the USA?

    Hunger strikes?

    Street protests?

    Assassinations?

    WWMD?
    What would Machiavelli Do?

    Machiavelli wrote in the last chapter of The Prince that he would trade his soul to liberate Florence and create a Republic.

    America’s Founders pledged Their Lives, Their Fortunes, Their Sacred Honor.

    What gesture can we make that would be powerful enough to match their commitment, and do we have the courage to take that step?

    In a way, the Lockdown is a form of liberation: There is nothing left to lose.

    If Pompeo were not so blinded by his own psychopathology, he would be afraid.

    We need to make him and all our rulers afraid.
    Very afraid.

    Fear works in more ways than one.

As a matter of fact, it seems so illogical, I have lately turned my research to finding out who exactly it is, that will benefit from this idea of enslaving mankind, and the best I can come up with so far, is that we might not actually be talking about humans. Remember, these bastards are only pretending to be Jewish. Jews are just dudes, like you and I, but they are being visibly promoted as objects of fear and hatred. Who, why, what?

    WASHINGTON — Although President Trump has directed states and hospitals to secure what supplies they can, the federal government is quietly seizing orders, leaving medical providers across the country in the dark about where the material is going and how they can get what they need to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.
    Hospital and clinic officials in seven states described the seizures in interviews over the past week. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is not publicly reporting the acquisitions, despite the outlay of millions of dollars of taxpayer money, nor has the administration detailed how it decides which supplies to seize and where to reroute them.

    Officials who’ve had materials seized also say they’ve received no guidance from the government about how or if they will get access to the supplies they ordered. That has stoked concerns about how public funds are being spent and whether the Trump administration is fairly distributing scarce medical supplies.

    “In order to have confidence in the distribution system, to know that it is being done in an equitable manner, you have to have transparency,” said Dr. John Hick, an emergency physician at Hennepin Healthcare in Minnesota who has helped develop national emergency preparedness standards through the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.

    They know that now. They didn’t know it up to the mid 50s when the vaccine was developed, which interestingly, Salk acknowledged may have killed more people than it saved. I have no idea what their exposure compared to mine was, but the fact that the ones I know had no other family members – children or adults – contracting polio suggests that exposure was not the issue either.
    The claim, and excuse for vacinations at the end of the 1950s was that measles was killing more people than polio. Measles is highly contagious. Most of the kids got it, at one time or another, during elementary school, but not all. People are contagious before being symptomatic, and some may be carriers without ever being symptomatic.
    Do you catch a cold or flu from every person you have been near, who has developed one? No. There were times I didn’t even catch the one my wife had. Was I a carrier? Probably. Despite all of the advances in science, there is still an enormous amount unknown as to the “why that person?” of disease transmission.

    This “National Education and Sharing Day” follows the Jewish Calendar. It is Scheersson’s birthday. Thanks for the heads up on this info, Chuck. So every year, our Zio puppet President proclaims this “holiday” according how the Jewish Calendar flows that year. Ziopuppet Prez Trump proclaimed the “holiday” on April 5th 2020.

    The “Sharing” part was the masks given to the IDF.

    https://nationaldaycalendar.com/days-2/national-education-and-sharing-day-changes-annually/

    NATIONAL EDUCATION AND SHARING DAY

    National Education and Sharing Day is observed annually on the 11th day of the month of Nisan on the Jewish calendar – or 4 days before Passover begins.

    In his 2009 proclamation on Education and Sharing Day, President Barack Obama wrote:

    “Few have better understood or more successfully promoted these ideas than Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who emphasized the importance of education and good character. Through the establishment of educational and social service institutions across the country and the world, Rabbi Schneerson sought to empower young people and inspire individuals of all ages. On this day, we raise his call anew.”

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/proclamation-education-sharing-day-u-s-2020/

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim April 5, 2020, as “Education and Sharing Day, U.S.A.” I call upon all government officials, educators, volunteers, and all the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.

  140. Thanks, Robjil, but most deservingly is “thanks” to Alison Weir. ❤

    Post scriptum: Ultra-Corono broke Scranton Calling geokat!

    Any photos/film available which depicts Rabbi Schnerrson’s funeral? I think iy was in NYC with heavy police protection. 🤔 Am wondering if Big Business Citizen, Donald J. Trump, honored Schnerrson & attended the ritual?

    Rabbi Scheerson, Schneerson, (argh 👺) Schneerson.

    Hey, Chuck. Glad you posted Alison’s article on a holiday celebrating the Rebbe’s birthday.

    Ever wonder why it’s called “Education and Sharing Day, U.S.A.”?

    As Alison noted in her article:

    The idea was to set aside a day to honor both education and the alleged educational work of Schneerson and the religious sect he headed up [Chabad Lubavitch].

    The truth of the matter is a little more complicated. To get around the constitutional requirement to separate church and state, the Lubavitchers devised an ingenious scheme by positioning the legislation as promoting educational ends, not religious ones. This was a clear deception. The legislation is meant to promote the Noahide Laws, by having the American people recognize the Laws as “foundational to their society.”

    This is all explained by Vincent Bruno who created the website, Stop Noahide Law:

    Public Law 102-14 states it is America’s “responsibility” to transmit the the values of the Noahide Laws to the future (here). Many wonder how Public Law 102-14 was passed since it so obviously breaks the law of the separation of church and state. According the Rabbi Cohen of http://www.Noahide.org, the bill was passed because Noahide Law was presented as “education” and not religion. Rabbi Cohen and Noahide.org are the same group who had the U.N. declare that Noahide Law is obligatory (here) and whom list “decapitation” as the punishment for breaking the Noahide Laws on their website (here).

    https://stopnoahidelaw.blogspot.com/2020/03/video-noahideorg-says-pass-noahide-law.html?m=1

    Here’s a very short clip of a rabbi spilling the beans:

    Thanks a lot, George.

    Slippery tribe scum EASILY byspass separation of church & state. They sacrifice & lock down our minds in a united Noahide vacuum.

    Good Friday, 2020, and like childhood times, I spend my time at home, in silence neither TalmudVision nor radio psy-op interference.

    Fyi, yesterday, at Church, the Beatutudes were recited by Father Manuele, an Intravascular Lynphoma survivor.

    Was especially awakened by the one: “Blessed are you when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you, falsely for my sake.”

    Yeah, George. Week of April 2017, wife and oldest son accused me of hating Jews. Called Taylor Borough cops on me, said, “Officer, he’s crazy and is a threat.”

    I forgave them, immediately, because they did not want to know who & what I am.

    July 2017, at Mayfield Pa-based Domestic (terror💀) Relations hearing for spousal support, my wife spoke falsely, said to the administrator, “Nobody wants him!” I bowed head, frowned, helpless, remained silent. For a $300 fee, my defense lawyer, Consagara, froze, went something like this 😳.

    Afterward, a per month Spousal Support arrangement was settled upon, & come August 1, 2017, no car, only a small motorcycle, I was sacked by having to pay wife $684/month.

    Hm. 🤔 Suggest everyone should spend some time getting reviled in The Name of Decency and The Christ? If Coronovirus don’t kill you, the Pennsylvania Domestic Relations will try.

    Thanks, Brat George. Will listen to your linked video, after Midnight.

    Selah, in my semi-humble opinion, blessed are those who read Alison Weir’s article on the evil Rebbe.

    But Jamaica may be the first country outside of the U.S., sans the larger Australia and Israel, to make this gesture. It is most definitely a first for the Carribean.

    Looks like they’re working on Europe, too:

    Other world leaders have joined the call for further observance and knowledge of these laws. For example, Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Union wrote (in July, 2014) that he seeks greater “dissemination of the universal values known as the Noahide Laws,” and Major General Michael Jeffery, Governor General of Australia, lamenting family breakdowns and drug and alcohol abuse in modern society in a 2008 letter, wrote that he believed that observing the fundamental values of the Noahide Laws can be an antidote to such ills of society.

    We only need to look at the havoc in which we find ourselves living today in order to recognize the validity of these truthful assertions.

    Giraldi:

    But meanwhile extreme views are proliferating, with Rush Limbaugh detecting a conspiracy by Democrats and communists to destroy capitalism under “the guise of saving lives” while a more restrained but ideologically driven libertarian Ron Paul meanwhile chose to pen an article entitled “Coronavirus Hoax” that personally pilloried as a “chief fearmonger” the government’s widely respected expert on the origin and spread of the disease Dr. Anthony Fauci.

    Stalin famously said that the death of one person was a tragedy while the death of a million is a statistic. For both Limbaugh and Paul an epidemic that could kill tens or even hundreds of thousands Americans produces a statistic, of lesser importance than retaining a completely corrupt Wall Street and the individual’s “liberty” to go shopping. Indeed, if greed driven American “vulture” capitalism must be preserved in its current form to protect and empower the rich, radical change might be welcomed by most Americans to include a long overdue genuine health infrastructure safety net.

    Very well said. Thank you, sir.

    All of this plandemic and lockdown are part of the Zionist attack on Iran, China, and local economies, perfectly indulging Israel’s banking masters that benefit from every act of horror and destruction they unleash on the world.
    First they heavily targeted Iran and China in order to weaken both economically and in face of an oncoming attack against Iran. Meanwhile slowly spreading a mild flu around nations who’d shown propensity for protest.
    Lockdown serves the multi purpose of draining local economies while justifying trillion dollar bailouts of big business, directing public attention towards self survival rather than geopolitics, and actual physical prevention of protest gatherings. This is a planned mass murder – a genocide of unscrupulous proportions.

    It’s because Iran is the mother of all civilizations.
    To people who have classical education Iran is the most historically important nation on earth.
    To the Hollywood indoctrinated it’s a hostile religious state.
    Those with classical education who watched the movie 300 walked out with absolute disgust of Zionist zeal to inversely portray Iranians.
    But as is apparent from their yearly Purim celebrations, which glorifies the act of murdering 75,000 Iranians, zionists have had Iran on their radar for generations.
    They’ve obsessed over and attacked Iran for thousands of years. They fully orchestrated the Islamic invasion of Iran 1400 years ago and they maintained it every time it’s influence began waning – up to and including the 1979 Islamic color revolution. Yet Iran survives and remains a vitally positive regional and global player.
    Nuking Iran would be like nuking the heart of humanity. What would be left would be a bunch of orphan zombies on the Zionist banker’s leash.

    Iran hasn’t produced anything of value for a very long time, and when it was important it certainly wasn’t Islamic. I also reckon the original inhabitants of what is today Iran were very racially different. The average IQ of Iran is 84 which is less than the average for African-Americans.

    Depends on your definition of “value”.
    With all the centuries of sabotage against it Iran is the epitome of resilience, courage, justice, and honor. These values are quite lacking in the first world as equipped as it is with the latest nuclear weapons and 800 military bases assisting in the annihilation of life everywhere.

    Iran is the silent survivor of the single biggest genocide of the twentieth century. In 1917 a zionist manufactured famine killed HALF of the country’s population. Nearly 11 million people starved to death as local and foreign Zionists withheld food in secret silos and sold them across the border. (Look up prof. Majd’s book on the great Persian famine)

    Still you probably never heard of this heartbreaking event. It is because Iranians never went around the world taking revenge or demanding reparations.
    Now that is a true sign of a civilized polity.

    Regarding today, given the incredibly long and complex history of Zionist use of Islamism, today’s Iran stands as a miracle in contrast to other forcibly Islamized regions.
    Iran has single handedly ousted the Zionist role in creating Wahhabism, Al Qaeda, ISIS ..,,, and in fact has long penetrated its own internal layers of sayanim and covert operatives bought by outside powers. This is an immense favor to all humanity at the expense of its own safety and reputation.

    With all the sanctions, sabotage and interference Iran has still created completely indigenous weapons, space and scientific programs, placing itself as part of only a handful of nations in indigenous space program, and nanotechnology.
    It is a regular producer of cutting edge medical and technological research. Iranians have always dominated NASA and Silicon Valley among many other fields.
    You don’t know what you are talking about when it comes to Iran. I can’t blame you. Zionists hide or take credit for most of what Iranians produce.
