Over the last week, I've done half a dozen interviews and shows discussing the Pandemic, the Panic, and the Pandemonium comprising the phenomenon we refer to when we say "coronavirus." It's a multifaceted thing, and obviously it's much larger than a simple virus. Even if one believes the establishment-approved scenario that has the novel coronavirus evolving naturally in bats (a scenario which would require some poor bat to be infected with two distinct coronaviruses and HIV at the same time so that the tiny pathogens could trade the proper DNA segments to generate what began infecting people in the latter half of 2019), jumping to an intermediate host, and pouncing on some hapless human as they browsed the live animals for sale at a Wuhan wet market, it's impossible to deny that world powers are weaponizing the epidemic for their own purposes - and given the preponderance of predictive programming presaging just such a pandemic over the past decade, a naturally-occurring plague unfolding as coronavirus has would be perhaps the most shockingly implausible coincidence since dozens of drills (46, by one count) mimicked the conditions of the September 11 terror attacks in the weeks leading up to and on the same day as the real-life airplanes crashed into the World Trade Center.
On March 17, I appeared on RT’s CrossTalk to discuss the economic effects of shutting down the country for a disease with a lower death rate than the average flu and explain that the coronavirus has proven that country’s healthcare system is only as good as the care it provides to the poorest in its midst.
On March 22, I spoke with Activist Post’s Spiro Skouras about the Rockefeller Foundation’s “Lock Step” scenario, a pandemic simulation drawn up in 2010 that eerily parallels the current events of 2020, and how predictive programming lays the groundwork for the imposition of draconian police-state controls. I dare anyone who's been following the news to read that scenario (linked above) - lines like "During the pandemic, national leaders around the world flexed their authority and imposed airtight rules and restrictions, from the mandatory wearing of face masks to body-temperature checks at the entries to communal spaces like train stations and supermarkets" - with current events in mind and not see its future - "Scanners using advanced functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) technology become the norm at airports and other public areas to detect abnormal behavior that may indicate 'antisocial intent'" - as ours.
I also discussed Lock Step on March 21 with Avalon.express, a new Italian platform being unveiled in the midst of that country's draconian quarantine to serve up suppressed or censored viewpoints to Italians hungry for information outside the mainstream (audio English, Italian subtitles). Italians are in the midst of a general strike right now, a fact we'd never know if we relied solely on establishment media to understand the world around us. They aren't just asking for paid leave for the extent of the epidemic - they want a radical reorganization of the entire system, ownership by the workers of the means of production. No wonder it's so hard to find English-language sites writing about it. At any rate, Italian establishment media would seem to be as locked-down as American, so I wish this outlet success going forward - check out their site if you speak Italian.
Lock Step is far from the only predictive programming we’ve seen in conjunction with coronavirus, of course. On March 16, I spoke about Event 201, the pandemic simulation held in October by Johns Hopkins University in conjunction with the World Economic Forum (Davos), with Sam Tripoli on his Tinfoil Hat podcast - a video YouTube saw fit to remove without explanation. The platform, of course, has warned users that "automated removals" will increase, that videos that do not violate its rules will be deleted more frequently, and that complaints will be ignored, all "because coronavirus" - an Orwellian leap straight out of the simulation itself. If Lock Step was the screen treatment of the Covid-19 pandemic, Event 201 was the screenplay.
I spoke more about Event 201 and Lock Step with Steve Poikonen of Slow News Day on March 24 (skip to 16 minutes in for the conversation - major technical difficulties) - along with several other topics, including the insidious effects of propaganda and how independent-minded individuals can - literally overnight - go from questioning authority to demanding 'murica go get them turrurrists.
It's impossible to ignore all the predictive programming that has primed the population for this not-quite-a-plague, and it's important to recognize it as what it is - deliberate imposition of chaos designed to craft the police state of the ruling class' dreams. But equally important is what we, as the affected population, do about it. With increasingly large sections of the US receiving government orders to Shut It Down™, I spoke with Dack Rouleau of Overwritten.org on March 22 about life under lockdown, what Stockholm Syndrome looks like in 2020, & our not-so-brave new world. In the intervening week, the state of Rhode Island has officially declared it a crime to not only be a New Yorker but even to harbor one, warning that police will be going door to door hunting down the wealthy Manhattanites who've fled Koronavirus Kommissar Kuomo's quarantine and forcibly imprisoning violators for two weeks. For their own good, of course. The US has gone from zero to gestapo in just a few short weeks, and we should be storming the Bastille - but instead we're joking on Twitter about "quarantine life" and gaining weight. How is it that just six months ago, we were being warned that "loneliness kills" - yet now we're being warned that should we try to do the healthy thing and mingle, we will be, if not shot on sight, at least fined and arrested?
We are in uncharted territory & it’s more important than ever to share factual, hype-free information, especially as social media platforms declare anything that deviates from the (constantly-shifting) Official Narrative to be anathema & the establishment media memory-holes massive chunks of reality. If you’re left with questions about what exactly the coronavirus is after watching these videos, you will likely find it answered in this article in which I address some of the most common myths and propaganda (no, it is not a Chinese-engineered bioweapon, and it did not originate in a “wet market” in Wuhan).
At the same time, it is critically important to distinguish “coronavirus the disease” from “coronavirus the hysteria.” The latter has even seasoned anti-imperialist commentators running to hide in the skirts of Police State USA, a wildly unpretty sight if ever I’ve seen one. Don’t be those people. Crises have a way of bringing out the best and worst in people, and it’s very important not to let yourself be taken advantage of by state-sanctioned predators. Stay safe, stay sane, but most importantly, stay FREE.
