Here's the latest news that the main stream media seems to lose...

Jeremiah 14:14-16 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

14 Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I have not sent them, neither did I command them, neither spake I unto them, but they prophesy unto you a false vision, and divination, and vanity, and deceitfulness of their own heart.

15 Therefore thus saith the Lord, Concerning the prophets that prophesy in my Name, whom I have not sent, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land, by sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

16 And the people to whom these prophets do prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem, because of the famine, and the sword, and there shall be none to bury them: both they and their wives, and their sons, and their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on
a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of
it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people
don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in
Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the
country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to
drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist
dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no
voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.
That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked,
and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the
country to danger. It works the same in any country."

(1893-1946) Commander-in-Chief of the Luftwaffe, President of the Reichstag, Prime Minister of Prussia and, as Hitler's designated successor, the second man in the Third Reich. [Göring]

CANADA'S GUN OWNERS LABELED ENEMIES OF THE NWO STATE

The NWO desires a disarmed and ignorant populace. You are grist for their coming mill. Heed the warnings while you can. This is the rise of the anti-Christ system. First they come for the guns. Then they come for your rights. After they convince you they are privileges allowed by the oligarchy, they will take them away. Then the terror of the system will commence to take away the former citizens reduced to slave status. You will most likely be brutalized at the end of the process. For being naive enough to let it happen, you deserve that much. You learn the forest or become its fertilizer. Some call it evolution. Some call it survival of the fittest. The signs are clear.

America is Gone

Posted by Conspiracy Cafe on March 27, 2020 at 2:40 AM



“The world has permanently changed,” he said. “The Fed is attempting to stop this repricing from going any further. They essentially announced they are nationalising the markets.”

 

The coronavirus Plan-demic was the grand finale for the former United States of America. The American's willingness to stand down, and do martial-law in place is unprecedented in American history and signals all-clear to the looters, communists, perverts and psychopaths who have been chipping away at the USA for 100 years.

 

With Zero understanding of economics and the financial system, the zombie Americans believe shutting the entire country down for maybe months could have been tolerated by a financial system already in full on collapse; that it could be done at no-cost to them.

 

Played like a fiddle by the Trump and QAnon nonsense, Americans are not even complaining.

 

The Federal Reserve (A Jewish Mafia Central Bank) is nationalizing markets and economy in real time. Corporate Debt, Government Debt, Municipal Debt, the stock market (Exchange Stabilization Fund) all being purchased en masse. The Fed is buying consumer assets with repo market asset purchases in the trillions each day --As much as $6 Trillion dollars are being conjured up per day to keep this Coup in progress. Nothing remains of the private sector -- The Economy has been nationalized. This is a take down and represents a Full on Fascist form of government with no relationship to Constitutional government. Unlimited Trillions of dollars printed out of thin air at Interest are being spewed like a firehose.

 

National Guard is mobilizing just in case someone peeps --

 

I have been talking about the financial collapse for years -- nothing could be done with the existing system but to let it crash and rebuild with private sector effort and Constitutional government to defend and protect the Citizen from the Vampire Zionist banks. Andrew Jackson is crying somewhere.

 

Medical Tyranny;


Precedent set now for manufactured pandemics (Americans do not even understand what viruses really are and why pandemics are not caused by viruses) - followed by self quarantine and the next shoe to drop will be the forced-poisons for faster population reduction called vaccines.

 

This was the perfect "storm" that Trump warned about and he played his part like true Traitor -- Trump is praising the Federal Reserve today - claiming that we need more stimulus, telling the people to focus on the Virus and not the Central Bankers looting the United States. All of the principle crime ridden banks, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo -- even Deutsche Bank will NEVER be allowed to fail and dragged down with them the rats which have eaten on the dying corpse of the USA for decades.

 

This will also be the end of paper money -- Buying all available assets with the cooperation of the American people will finally destroyed for good the purchasing power of the USD -- We will see in the next 6 - 12 months a new dollar -- a crypto currency (as it will be called) which will end the anonymity of cash and usher in the new era of never-again-private-transactions.

 

Remember coronavirus can be transmitted on paper money!

 

The Technocracy is too complicated for ordinary people -- most people are becoming unemployable -- while the Fed notified today that unemployment claims are over 3.5 Million for the week. This is not sustainable and the real pain of this non-violent coup will be the violence of starvation and societal breakdown as the new Bolsheviks transition from wolves in grandma clothes to the animals with teeth (Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky) they really are.

 

The long time Zionist attendent and criminal (think Iran Contra, Iraq Gate and other cover ups in the George H. W. Bush crime show,) Bill Barr, our man in the highest position for Justice, is now asking for full Martial Law (ending Habeas Corpus -- indefinite detention -- the usual third world - Massad type corruption) -- . These powers are absolute and horrible and worse they will never be taken away or given back ...

 

Trump was the Judas Goat and America Died in March of 2020 - We enter a New World Order now, which will see the dropping of "its for your safety" virtual-signaling lies and in place will be the cold reality of quarantine camps for fake pandemics, forced vaccinations and indefinite incarcerations for those who are not socially fit to be part of this drug up -- dumbed down civilization.

 

While the game show theatrics of the Political 'Actor' Trump and his gang of Chabad terrorist pick through what used to belong to Americans -- like Vultures over recently roadkill, those of us who enjoyed freedom of travel, privacy, medical freedom, due process, speedy trial will just have to weep.

 

This is a sad day -- American gave up Liberty for $1000 a plate reality-show and thunderous applause as the Government saved us all from the terrible coronavirus -- (common cold) mockery at its finest.

 

All that remains is the collection of the USA into something like a North American Union and the emergence of some psychopath wearing Rabbi clothes telling us we are all Noahides now .. Maybe that will be completed within the next 5 years.

 

RIP USA -

NOTES FROM A PATRIOT 

ELDERBERRY & CYTOKINE STORM? +10 HERBS THAT CALM A CYTOKINE STORM

Posted by Conspiracy Cafe on March 25, 2020 at 10:15 AM


 

March 14, 2020 By Jacqueline


In a panic, there are some (with no research to back it up) claiming that elderberry is horrible for us during this covid-19 situation or during influenza. We should not let a few undermine one of the best remedies we have!

 

Remember that the main mechanism for elderberry is as a neuraminidase inhibitor (lots like tamiflu, but without the harsh psychiatric complications) which minimizes the budding replication action of the virus.

 

I give more information to refute all the hype and a list of herbs that will CALM a cytokine storm, so please read to the end!

 

WELL-KNOWN PEDIATRICIAN ELISA SONG, MD HAS WEIGHED IN ON THIS QUESTION.


What is a cytokine storm and does elderberry make it more likely when you have influenza?

 

Dr. Song, MD states:

 

While it’s true that some people have sadly died from influenza and other infections due to a “cytokine storm,” please remember that this is a RARE occurrence and that the media highlights the few and very sad cases of people who die from influenza (some due to cytokine storm, some not).

 

Of course, they don’t highlight the many 1000s of people who get influenza every year and do not die, including the many more 1000s who have zero or very mild symptoms.

 

While we don’t understand the exact pathophysiology of the cytokine storm, we know it’s NOT just a problem of immune system OVERREACTION; it’s also a problem of immune system UNDERREACTION. The parts of the immune system that create inflammation are in overdrive, and the parts of the immune system that are supposed to REGULATE and bring this inflammation back to equilibrium is not active enough.

 

Remember – INFLAMMATION is NOT always bad. Inflammation is our body’s normal response to infection and stress. We need inflammation to heal.

 

It is inflammation that goes unregulated is the REAL problem.

 

The cytokine storm involves dysregulation between PRO-inflammatory cytokines, ANTI-inflammatory cytokines, and REGULATORY cytokines.

 

(See below what herbs TO USE that can CALM a storm) *


WHAT’S THE VERDICT ON ELDERBERRY?


Dr. Elisa Song, MD continues: Do I think that elderberry can trigger or make a cytokine storm more likely when you have influenza?

 

I really don’t.

 

The centuries of use of elderberry and data on its activity against the influenza virus, its immunoprotective and antioxidant effects leave me with very little concern that its “immunostimulatory effects” will cause your immune system to go haywire.

 

Elderberry has been shown to:

 

increase BOTH PRO-inflammatory cytokines and ANTI-inflammatory cytokines

REDUCE oxidative stress (oxidative stress = free radicals)

and may help to REGULATE inflammatory disease like autoimmunity

WHAT ABOUT AUTOIMMUNE ISSUES?


There have not been case reports of elderberry-induced cytokine storms, and I have not stopped using elderberry for my kids or my patients, even with autoimmune disease. But as with anything, listen to your body and it’s always best to check with your naturopathic or functional medicine doctor!

 

This question came up in my Thriving Child Community private FB group. Come on over and join us to ask questions like these and be part of our worldwide community dedicated to helping children thrive – body, mind and spirit!

 

Elisa Song, MD has this posted to her FB page.

 

*HERBS THAT CALM [OR CAUSE] A CYTOKINE STORM


Educating yourself about this is EXTREMELY important.

 

When someone in your house gets “the sniffles” there are so many wonderful ways of treating the illness through a natural route including:

 

Elderberry Syrup

essential oils

diffusing

baths

tinctures


In essence there are a lot of resources to use in order to combat the illness before it gets worse.

 

But, if someone in your care (including yourself of course) gets ill and it keeps getting worse, and worse, and worse and worse… you could be FEEDING the problem by what herbs you are using.


 


 

 

Here is a list of herbs that help to COMBAT Cytokine Storm (and if you keep getting more and more sick, these are the herbs to INCREASE): (source)

 

Turmeric (how to make Golden Paste)

Elder LEAF

Yarrow

Cayenne

Garlic (how to make Fire Cider)

Horseradish (how to make Pepper Juice)

Red Raspberry tea

Skullcap

St. John’s Wort

Tea Tree Oil by inhaling

Vitamin C (lots of it!) How to get to bowel tolerance with high dose usage


Now… here is a list of herbs to STOP taking if an illness is starting to escalate to a BAD stage: (source)


–Elderberry

-Echinacea

–Honey (any sugar of any kind makes it worse)

–Chocolate

-Colloidal Silver

–Kimchee


KEEP IT IN PERSPECTIVE:


Blog post When Not to Use Elderberry: Using a Little Discernment, states that cytokine storms trigger a type of viral-induced sepsis which is an autoimmune event involving an amped up immune system response that “could” result in pneumonia or death. It’s been associated with H1N1, but other viruses have sparked storms, as well.

 

Please understand this is a rare occurrence.

 

The author above writes, “In the name of making better, more nuanced choices, I’m going to start recommending that pregnant women not use it (elderberry) during the flu season because they are already at an increased risk of hyperimmunity.[vi]

 

IS THAT ENOUGH TO STOP ELDERBERRY USE?


Some people cite this study of 12 people, which says that elderberry boosts cytokine production in healthy people. They say that means elderberry shouldn’t be used daily and/or can cause a cytokine storm. The study does not say either one of these things. It concludes that stimulating the immune system may actually be beneficial for health. It also does not address the issue of “cytokine storms” at all.

 

(This study and this study have much more in-depth, balanced looks at elderberry’s effects on the body.) (source)

 

Elderberry inhibits the early stages of a viral infection by “blocking key viral proteins responsible for both the viral attachment and entry into the host cells.”

 

And even respected herbalist Stephen Buhner is saying E’berry is okay. These are his words!

 


 

Elderberry is best used at the very onset of symptoms as I explain on my Elderberry Syrup post.

Reinfection theory. More than one 'COVID-19'. More than 3 stages of infection.

Posted by Conspiracy Cafe on March 25, 2020 at 10:05 AM


There could be at least 3 latent stages to Covid-19. It's these quiet stages that lull us into a false sense of security.

 

Note, reinfection isn't scientifically proven yet. The main evidence is from doctors in China who've made that conjecture. The closest discussion I've seen on this was here: https://www.reddit.com/r/COVID19/comments/f67fan/reinfection_with_same_strain_producing_severe/ But it needed better references from the OP for that evidence based thread.

 

So, take this with a grain of salt and comment if there's evidence for and against anything here. Remember that this is just discussion at this stage.

 

//Please help me to update this post with TBC (To be completed) sections and references to the secondary infection paper and latency evidence. I'll go back through my research and try to update references after work but if you have a reference please let me know. There are other subreddits that have different focuses on this virus to investigate.//

 

Stage 1) You first get infected. You might get mild symptoms in your respiratory tract. Maybe a sore throat. Maybe a dry cough. Some people get it worse at this stage but 80-90% walk it off.

 

Suggested transmission scenarios at this point: You cough into your hand. You handle cash, passing droplets onto it. The cashier takes your cash. Person receiving money is wearing a mask but wipes sleepy dust away from their eye and gets infected.

 

There is now a large window that lulls us into a false sense of security. We think this lasts for *TBC* days on average. Anal swabs at this point might not detect much.

 

Stage 2) Your immune system fights off the infection in the upper part of your body. The virus moves to the lower part. It's infecting ACE2 but it's new reservoir is the gastrointestinal tract. You get mild diarrhea. It smells bad but you don't really mind. You've had Bali belly before.

 

Suggested transmission scenario at this point: You flush a squat toilet with no lid. As evidenced by the smell, there's a chance of droplets and even aeroisation. The virus lands on surfaces like the toilet door handle in a public bathroom and a toothbrush at home. It travels through a drainage pipe as we saw with SARS in Hong Kong.

 

Stage 3) You recover without any assistance. You still have some of the virus left in key ACE2 receptor areas of your body but you're slowly flushing it out.

 

Stage 4) Now your antibodies reduce. This is key. There is now a lag time to the next stage. You're uninfected but vulnerable. How long this lasts is anyone's guess.

 

Stage 5) You get reinfected. But this time the virus is ***slightly different***. The body produces the same antibodies as before but this time this only makes things worse by assisting the virus to enter even immune cells. As with Dengue, everyone's immune system is different. This is where having a strong immune system could be a problem. In some people's bodies more and more of the same is produced forming a Cytokine storm. The immune system is damaging your own body.

 

At this stage you need something to suppress that immune system. You need oxygen. And you also need something to treat the virus since your immune system is attacking it as if it were like the previous infection.

 

To be clear, at this point your live or die shopping list is:

 

- oxygen

 

- an antiviral. There are >100 in trials

 

- an **immune suppressant.** This seems key. Perhaps different immune suppressants act in different ways. AFAIK this is a key area right now in China. It's an area we don't really hear about

 

Symptoms progress much faster in stage 5. Sites of the body with ACE2 are most vulnerable. These sites are: kidneys, lungs, heart, testes, eyes, TBC

 

Stage 6) The immune system is busy fighting the infection. You get another infection. Could be TB. Could be just a common cold. But this secondary infection is the final knockout. Doctors have been prescribing antibiotics to prevent this before any other infection is even detected.

 

Less specialist things that might also help at this stage could be:

 

- cleaning the lungs. Don't lie flat with neumonia. Inhalable antiviral?

 

- cleaning the digestive system. Antibiotic to prevent further infection? Very strong probiotics? Assist a weak patient to poo?

 

To get a handle on this virus I we need to think in terms of:

 

reservoir areas of the lungs and digestive system, especially in terms of testing. THERE'S MORE THAN ONE AREA OF INFECTION

 

Latent stages. THERE'S MORE THAN ONE STAGE.

 

Reinfection and multi variants. THERE'S MORE THAN ONE VIRUS.

 

This is why China is experiencing meltdown right now. The genetic theory that maybe it affects Asians more is partially disproven in a preprint paper. The only reason outside China is OK right now is the MANY lag periods, which no one is accounting for. Cases from the cruise ships and outside China are now pointing to exponential spread and if non Chinese react as we think then the 2nd infection knock out will be just as bad as China. We've seen some evidence for this in places outside of China now.

GOV.UK, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) no longer classified as High Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID)

Posted by Conspiracy Cafe on March 25, 2020 at 9:05 AM


Guidance and information about high consequence infectious diseases and their management in England.

Status of COVID-19


As of 19 March 2020, COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious diseases (HCID) in the UK.


The 4 nations public health HCID group made an interim recommendation in January 2020 to classify COVID-19 as an HCID. This was based on consideration of the UK HCID criteria about the virus and the disease with information available during the early stages of the outbreak. Now that more is known about COVID-19, the public health bodies in the UK have reviewed the most up to date information about COVID-19 against the UK HCID criteria. They have determined that several features have now changed; in particular, more information is available about mortality rates (low overall), and there is now greater clinical awareness and a specific and sensitive laboratory test, the availability of which continues to increase.


The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) is also of the opinion that COVID-19 should no longer be classified as an HCID.


The need to have a national, coordinated response remains, but this is being met by the government’s COVID-19 response.


Cases of COVID-19 are no longer managed by HCID treatment centres only. All healthcare workers managing possible and confirmed cases should follow the updated national infection and prevention (IPC) guidance for COVID-19, which supersedes all previous IPC guidance for COVID-19. This guidance includes instructions about different personal protective equipment (PPE) ensembles that are appropriate for different clinical scenarios.


Definition of HCID


In the UK, a high consequence infectious disease (HCID) is defined according to the following criteria:


acute infectious disease

typically has a high case-fatality rate

may not have effective prophylaxis or treatment

often difficult to recognise and detect rapidly

ability to spread in the community and within healthcare settings

requires an enhanced individual, population and system response to ensure it is managed effectively, efficiently and safely

Classification of HCIDs

HCIDs are further divided into contact and airborne groups:

contact HCIDs are usually spread by direct contact with an infected patient or infected fluids, tissues and other materials, or by indirect contact with contaminated materials and fomites

airborne HCIDs are spread by respiratory droplets or aerosol transmission, in addition to contact routes of transmission


List of high consequence infectious diseases


A list of HCIDs has been agreed by a joint Public Health England (PHE) and NHS England HCID Programme:


Contact HCID                                Airborne HCID


Argentine haemorrhagic fever (Junin virus) Andes virus infection (hantavirus)

Bolivian haemorrhagic fever (Machupo virus) Avian influenza A H7N9 and H5N1

Crimean Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) Avian influenza A H5N6 and H7N7

Ebola virus disease (EVD) Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)

Lassa fever Monkeypox

Lujo virus disease Nipah virus infection

Marburg virus disease (MVD) Pneumonic plague (Yersinia pestis)

Severe fever with thrombocytopaenia syndrome (SFTS) Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)*


*No cases reported since 2004, but SARS remains a notifiable disease under the International Health Regulations (2005), hence its inclusion here


**Human to human transmission has not been described to date for avian influenza A(H5N6). Human to human transmission has been described for avian influenza A(H5N1), although this was not apparent until more than 30 human cases had been reported. Both A(H5N6) and A(H5N1) often cause severe illness and fatalities. Therefore, A(H5N6) has been included in the airborne HCID list despite not meeting all of the HCID criteria.


The list of HCIDs will be kept under review and updated by PHE if new HCIDs emerge that are of relevance to the UK.


HCIDs in the UK


HCIDs, including viral haemorrhagic fevers (VHFs), are rare in the UK. When cases do occur, they tend to be sporadic and are typically associated with recent travel to an area where the infection is known to be endemic or where an outbreak is occurring. None of the HCIDs listed above are endemic in the UK, and the known animal reservoirs are not found in the UK.


As of February 2020, 2019, the UK has experience of managing confirmed cases of Lassa fever, EVD, CCHF, MERS and monkeypox. The vast majority of these patients acquired their infections overseas, but rare incidents of secondary transmission of MERS and monkeypox have occurred in the UK.


HCID risks by country


For health professionals wishing to determine the HCID risk in any particular country, an A to Z list of countries and their respective HCID risk is available.


See HCID country risks


Monthly summaries of global HCID events


PHE’s epidemic intelligence activities monitor global HCID events. These are published in a monthly summary.


Infection prevention and control in healthcare settings


Specific infection prevention and control (IPC) measures are required for suspected and confirmed HCID cases, in all healthcare settings (specialist and non-specialist).


IPC guidance appropriate for suspected and confirmed cases of Lassa fever, EVD, CCHF, MVD, Lujo virus disease, Argentinian haemorrhagic fever, Bolivian haemorrhagic fever and SFTS, is available in the ACDP guidance.


IPC guidance for MERS, avian influenza, Nipah virus infection, monkeypox and pneumonic plague, can be found in the relevant PHE guidance listed below.


Links to relevant PHE guidance for healthcare professionals


avian influenza

MERS

monkeypox

Nipah virus infection

plague

VHF, including Ebola


Specialist advice for healthcare professionals


The Imported Fever Service (IFS) provides 24-hour, 7-days a week telephone access to expert clinical and microbiological advice. Hospital doctors across the UK can contact the IFS after discussion with the local microbiology, virology or infectious disease consultant.


Hospital management of confirmed HCID cases


Once an HCID has been confirmed by appropriate laboratory testing, cases in England should be transferred rapidly to a designated HCID Treatment Centre. Occasionally, highly probable cases may be moved to an HCID Treatment Centre before laboratory results are available.


Contact HCIDs


There are 2 principal Contact HCID Treatment Centres in England:

the Royal Free London High Level Isolation Unit (HLIU)

the Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary HLIU.

Further support for managing confirmed contact HCID cases is provided by the Royal Liverpool Hospital and the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield.


Airborne HCIDs


There are 4 interim Airborne HCID Treatment Centres in England. Adult and paediatric services are provided by 6 NHS Trusts:


Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (adult and paediatric services)

Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, with a paediatric service provided by Imperial College Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust, with a paediatric service provided by Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust

Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (adult and paediatric services)


Case transfer arrangements


Hospital clinicians seeking to transfer confirmed HCID cases, or discuss the transfer of highly probable HCID cases, should contact the NHS England EPRR Duty Officer. It is expected that each case will have been discussed with the Imported Fever Service before discussing transfer.


Travel health advice for HCIDs


The National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) provides travel health information about a number of HCIDs, for healthcare professionals and travellers. Advice can be accessed via the Travel Health Pro website.

The four-star general who will command the US: Military puts plans in place for 'extraordinary circumstances' and martial law

Posted by Conspiracy Cafe on March 22, 2020 at 10:15 AM


Newsweek reports that US military planners are looking at range of radical hypotheticals amid the coronavirus crisis


Should the country's top politicians be struck down by COVID-19 and civil government be incapacitated, martial law could be imposed


Gen. Terrence J. O'Shaughnessy is the 'combatant commander' for the United States and would lead the country if Washington were crippled


The scenario appears highly unlikely, but there are also current debates about whether armed forces could be allowed to exercise 'emergency authority'


The military could possibly serve a policing function if widespread violence breaks out due to food shortages or financial chaos caused by coronavirus


Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should you see a doctor?


By ANDREW COURT FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

 

PUBLISHED: 02:50 EDT, 22 March 2020 | UPDATED: 08:25 EDT, 22 March 2020


The coronavirus crisis is forcing US military planners to look at 'extraordinary circumstances' and prepare for a range of radical scenarios, including the possibility of widespread domestic violence and the deaths of the country's top politicians.


In a report published Sunday, Newsweek reveals that standby orders were issued more than three weeks ago to ready Above-Top Secret contingency plans if 'all Constitutional successors are incapacitated' and martial law needs to be imposed across the country.


'We're in new territory,' one anonymous senior military officer told the publication.


Gen. Terrence J. O'Shaughnessy is the 'combatant commander' for the United States and would lead the country if Washington were crippled by the current Covid-19 crisis...


Even if that were to happen, marital law would only be temporary measure, until a new civilian leader was installed.

This is a coup!

AMERICAN COUP

Posted by Conspiracy Cafe on March 21, 2020 at 12:50 PM


The greatest assault on human society in history is upon us. The mandarins of the propaganda have circled the wagons and declared a pandemic. Based on that declaration, the entire planet must surrender to the deception by placing themselves under virtual house arrest. Freedom of movement is a complete restriction to such an effect that employment is forbidden. We are told that there is a SARS CORONA virus responsible for all of this The only certification to the story is the media is harping it 24/7 ad infinitum ad nauseam. In the manner of George Orwell, Big Brother has spoken 2 + 2 = 5. Why? Because he said so. 


The U.S. government has prepared their response plan U.S. Government Response Plan to COVID-19. It is a 103 page document. I failed the plan after coming upon this segment under Assumptions. In the absence of facts, planning assumptions represent information deemed true. THERE ARE NO FACTS and we're turning civilization on its head and destroying the world economy to the point that upon its collapse millions could perish. A great Chinese philosopher said, it doesn't matter how hard you row if you're rowing in the wrong direction. I feel we are being duped to row in the wrong direction. 


In an Italian study on alleged victims of the virus found the following:


“More than 99% of Italy’s coronavirus fatalities were people who suffered from previous medical conditions, according to a study by the country’s national health authority.”


Only 0.8% of the victims did not have previous conditions. Almost half had three other conditions. A quarter had one or two other conditions. Most of those who died were elderly. Of those under 40 all had serious other health conditions. So we are seeing these skewed results passed off as a crisis for all to cower from the onslaught. 


So do we even have a disease? That is open for interpretation. To declare a virus is a disease vector one must satisfy the Koch postulates. That is something called science. Hype, hyperbole and outright propaganda do not require issues to be confused with facts. That sounds like our government report in the absence of facts. 


Koch postulates:

 

Purify the pathogen (e.g. virus) from many cases with a particular illness.


Expose susceptible animals (obviously not humans) to the pathogen.


Verify that the same illness is produced.


Re-purify the pathogen, just to be sure that it really is creating the illness.


It has been said that this has never been done with viruses. In absence of this, we are faced with one of the greatest attempts at deception ever devised in human history. I see the confinement and restrictions on people as the same as any junta would impose in a coup. This time they are using health laws which are just as draconian as any other war measures or anti-terror legislation. The fear factor generated gets the populace to voluntarily submit. The question remains who and why? I feel there is a primary reason and target. It is the take down of President Trump. 




The media circus is starting to refine the true target now. The CIA warned the president, and he did nothing. I feel this will be the new MSM jihad to vilify him so that by the time of the next election he will be a laughing stock with the economy in a shambles and a purported plague upon the nation. It was a well opined tactic of the liberal left to destroy the nation's economy to make the president look incompetent. I sincerely doubt they gave up. In fact the desire would be seen as a way to combat climate change by stopping the industrialized world in it's tracks. Further comments have been voiced about reducing the world population by pandemic. So for the originators it is a win, win, win situation. 





We see the start of the campaign here. Dr. Anthony Fauci provides the antic by embarrassing the president behind his back. He is supposed to be the nation's top immunologist yet he breaks the cardinal rule by touching his face. This will be a protracted campaign to get the president impeached by the people at the ballot box. However, as things progress, and troops are in the streets that doesn't rule out the mob driven rout of the president. 


These are perilous times my friends. Thought and reason vanish when the power of the mob is unleashed upon us. Marshall McLuhan said, the medium is the message. That means because media said it our minds are secured in bondage. There is no rational escape except thought if we can ebb the tide of media. It is an daunting task. I have been assailed for even daring to form a thought or an opinion contrary to these media memes by relatively intelligent people who happen to be slaves to the medium. It isn't going to get better. It is most likely to get worse where those not kowtowing to the demands are openly pilloried in the streets. May God have mercy, but what if the emergency hospitals are for those wounded in the coming struggle? What if there is a complete system failure and millions die of starvation as opposed to the so called virus? That will be justified by the order to be sure. 


This was a master plan. It will depose the president one way or another. It will convince the supporters of Trump to STAND DOWN out of fear of a mind meme virus preventing armed conflict. All the mechanisms of the police state will be in place at the insistence of a populace frightened into submission. It will give a reason to the disappeared who died of the virus and whose bodies were disposed of secretly to prevent contagion. It will stop the economic engines of the world for climate. It can allow population reduction. It will fulfill the age old nightmare of a new world order of a microchipped and vaccinated populace completely isolated and cut off from God. Nothing could have been both more brilliant and diabolical. So change your mind about the virus. Look at it as a coup against the president. It is the only way to save the republic. 



Vive la revolution.

Italian Government Study: 99% of their Coronavirus Fatalities Were Already Sick; Half Diagnosed with 3 or More Diseases

Mainstream Media Confirmation: 99% of the Italian Coronavirus Fatalities Were Already Sick and Elderly

 

Serious doubts about the accuracy of COVID-19 testing methods, results, mortality rates, and the supposedly unique and extreme lethality of this virus are starting to emerge, even within mainstream media and government reporting. A recent study released by Italy's national health authority found that nearly everyone who was pronounced dead from COVID-19 was already struggling with serious chronic disease(s).

 

A recent article in Bloomberg titled, “99% of Those Who Died From Virus Had Other Illness, Italy Says,” illustrates an overlooked point in the corona-panic taking the world by storm: the status of one’s immune system and overall health determines morbidity and mortality, and likely your susceptibility to infection in the first place.

 

The study found that,

 

“More than 99% of Italy’s coronavirus fatalities were people who suffered from previous medical conditions, according to a study by the country’s national health authority.”

 

Moreover,

 

“The Rome-based institute has examined medical records of about 18% of the country’s coronavirus fatalities, finding that just three victims, or 0.8% of the total, had no previous pathology. Almost half of the victims suffered from at least three prior illnesses and about a fourth had either one or two previous conditions. More than 75% had high blood pressure, about 35% had diabetes and a third suffered from heart disease.”

 

The Bloomberg article also pointed out that the primary threat is to the elderly (the average age of someone who died was 79.5) and that the fatality rate may have been significantly overblown: instead of 8%, the fatality rate may, in fact, be closer to the global average of about 2%.

 

“The median age of the infected is 63 but most of those who die are older.

 

The average age of those who’ve died from the virus in Italy is 79.5. As of March 17, 17 people under 50 had died from the disease. All of Italy’s victims under 40 have been males with serious existing medical conditions.

 

While data released Tuesday points to a slowdown in the increase of cases, with a 12.6% rise, a separate study shows Italy could be underestimating the real number of cases by testing only patients presenting symptoms.


 

According to the GIMBE Foundation, about 100,000 Italians have contracted the virus, daily Il Sole 24 Ore reported. That would bring back the country’s death rate closer to the global average of about 2%.”

 

This new report challenges much of the global reporting on the topic which presents a unilateral narrative that simply being exposed (within six feet) to someone who may have tested positive for the virus is life-threatening, independent of one’s health status and other precautions one might take, such as supporting one’s immune system. Elderly people, already experiencing polypharmacy for multiple life-threatening diagnoses for chronic diseases, are highly susceptible to opportunistic infections due to their chronic conditions, the adverse effects of pharmaceuticals, and subsequently weakened immune systems.

 

Blaming a single virus for causing their deaths is not evidence-based, nor does it fulfill the basic postulates established by 19th-century German physician Robert Koch to ascertain whether a singular virus can cause a singular disease. There are a wide range of viruses that can cause the symptoms associated with COVID-19 infection, which include the several hundred different influenza viruses known to play a role in seasonal flu. It's also known that the Coronavirus family of viruses contain over a hundred different strains, seven of which cause the common cold. Some of these viruses exist naturally within the human virome, and never express themselves pathogenically, but will potentially cause false positives through the many different COVID-19 testing methods being used today.

 

Indeed, assuming the original source point of this supposedly novel form of infection came from Wuhan, it doesn't appear that the claimed singular causative agent -- COVID-19 -- was ever properly identified, purified, and characterized in multiple humans suffering from the disease (nor was its absence determined in healthy humans). This would be required, as we pointed out recently in Dr. Wodarg’s testimony, in order to fulfill step one of Koch’s four postulates, which would demonstrate scientifically that a singular microorganism like a bacteria or virus is the causative agent behind a disease (the most basic tenet of germ theory). Based on the testimony of Dr. Wodarg, the gold standard would have required the purification of the virus and characterizing it via electron microscope technology, as well as establishing an effective and independently verified virus testing method (which would have required using PCR-reverse transcriptase testing within multiple cases of those suffering from the identical disease) -- two things, it appears, were never done; or at least not reproduced and therefore validated independently through other laboratories and medical institutions.

 

Nor were any of the remaining three Koch postulates fulfilled:

 

The microorganism must be found in abundance in all organisms suffering from the disease, but should not be found in healthy organisms.

 

The microorganism must be isolated from a diseased organism and grown in pure culture.

 

The cultured microorganism should cause disease when introduced into a healthy organism.

 

The microorganism must be reisolated from the inoculated, diseased experimental host and identified as being identical to the original specific causative agent.

 

Until an original singular causative agent can be identified through multiple cases, and that agent can be purified and proven to cause the same disease in animals, and then re-purified to establish it is indeed the cause in humans, much of what we are hearing are "confirmed cases" and "COVID-19 fatalities" may be inaccurate, and further fanning the flames of fear, panic, and global instability.

Visualizing The Secret History Of A Coronavirus Bioweapon

The below visualization The Secret History of Coronavirus Bioweapon is based on GreatGameIndia‘s exclusive report Coronavirus Bioweapon – How China Stole Coronavirus From Canada And Weaponized It

 

The Saudi SARS Sample


On June 13, 2012 a 60-year-old Saudi man was admitted to a private hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, with a 7-day history of fever, cough, expectoration, and shortness of breath. He had no history of cardiopulmonary or renal disease, was receiving no long-term medications, and did not smoke.

 

The Canadian Lab


On May 4, 2013, a sample of this Saudi SARS (aka novel Coronavirus) from the very first infected Saudi patient arrived in Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg via Ron Fouchier of Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, Netherlands who sequenced the virus sample.


Chinese Biological Espionage


In March 2019, in mysterious event a shipment of exceptionally virulent viruses from Canada’s NML ended up in China. The event caused a major scandal with Bio-warfare experts questioning why Canada was sending lethal viruses to China.


Four months later in July 2019, a group of Chinese virologists were forciblydispatched from the Canadian lab – the only level-4 facility equipped to handle the world’s deadliest diseases where Coronavirus sample from the first Saudi patient was being examined.


Xiangguo Qiu


The scientist who was escorted out of the Canadian lab along with members of her research team is believed to be a Chinese Bio-Warfare agent Xiangguo Qiu.


Dr. Xiangguo Qiu is married to another Chinese scientist Dr. Keding Cheng – the couple is responsible for infiltrating Canada’s NML with many Chinese agents posing as students from a range of Chinese scientific facilities directly tied to China’s Biological Warfare Program.


Dr. Xiangguo Qiu made at least five trips to the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory located only 20 miles away from the Huanan Seafood Market which is the epicenter of the outbreak.


The Canadian investigation is ongoing and questions remain whether previous shipments to China of other viruses or other essential preparations, took place from 2006 to 2018, one way or another.


Frank Plummer Assassination

 

Meanwhile, in a very strange turn of events, renowned scientist Frank Plummer who received Saudi SARS Coronavirus sample and was working on Coronavirus (HIV) vaccine in the Winnipeg based Canadian lab from where the virus was smuggled by Chinese Biowarfare agents has died in mysterious conditions in Nigeria.


Scholars or Spies


The Thousand Talents Plan or Thousand Talents Program was established in 2008 by the central government of China to recognize and recruit leading international experts in scientific research, innovation, and entrepreneurship – in other words to steal western technology.


Weaponizing Biotech


China’s national strategy of military-civil fusion has highlighted biology as a priority, and the People’s Liberation Army could be at the forefront of expanding and exploiting this knowledge. Chinese military’s interest in biology as an emerging domain of warfare is guided by strategists who talk about potential “genetic weapons” and the possibility of a “bloodless victory.”

I believe we are being double tapped with the 5G and the insertion of the biological agent to provide the cover story. I tend to believe this agent was inserted last year in the pneumonia vaccine. I have asserted for sometime that Justin Trudeau is a quantum enemy of the U.S. foreign by nature, domestic by treaty. He has participated in acts of war with China against the U.S and all western nations. It is highly likely China turned up the 5G to deadly levels to purposely fry large numbers of their people to simulate this plague. Then they turned it down. We have been conquered. Few are able to grasp the significance because we are inured to popular news fiction. I further stated this is the end of the Biblical age.

China Locked in Hybrid War with US

Posted by Conspiracy Cafe on March 18, 2020 at 2:20 PM



March 18, 2020 


The fallout from the COVID-19 outbreak puts Beijing and Washington on a collision course, writes Pepe Escobar.

 

By Pepe Escobar


The Asia Times

 

Among the myriad, earth-shattering geopolitical effects of coronavirus, one is already graphically evident. China has re-positioned itself. For the first time since the start of Deng Xiaoping’s reforms in 1978, Beijing openly regards the U.S. as a threat, as stated a month ago by Foreign Minister Wang Yi at the Munich Security Conference during the peak of the fight against coronavirus.

 

Beijing is carefully, incrementally shaping the narrative that, from the beginning of the coronavirus attack, the leadership knew it was under a hybrid war attack.

 

The terminology of President Xi Jinping is a major clue. He said, on the record, that this was war. And, as a counter-attack, a “people’s war” had to be launched.

 

Moreover, he described the virus as a demon or devil. Xi is a Confucianist. Unlike some other ancient Chinese thinkers, Confucius was loath to discuss supernatural forces and judgment in the afterlife. However, in a Chinese cultural context, devil means “white devils” or “foreign devils”: guailo in Mandarin, gweilo in Cantonese. This was Xi delivering a powerful statement in code.


When Zhao Lijian, a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, voiced in an incandescent tweet the possibility that “it might be US Army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan” – the first blast to this effect to come from a top official – Beijing was sending up a trial balloon signaling that the gloves were finally off. Zhao Lijian made a direct connection with the Military Games in Wuhan in October 2019, which included a delegation of 300 U.S. military.

 

He directly quoted U.S. CDC Director Robert Redfield who, when asked last week whether some deaths by Coronavirus had been discovered posthumously in the U.S., replied that “some cases have actually been diagnosed this way in the U.S. today.”

 

Zhao’s explosive conclusion is that COVID-19 was already in effect in the U.S. before being identified in Wuhan – due to the by now fully documented inability of the U.S. to test and verify differences compared with the flu.

 

Adding all that to the fact that coronavirus genome variations in Iran and Italy were sequenced and it was revealed they do not belong to the variety that infected Wuhan, Chinese media are now openly asking questions and drawing a connection with the shutting down in August last year of the “unsafe” military bioweapon lab at Fort Detrick, the Military Games, and the Wuhan epidemic. Some of these questions had been asked– with no response – inside the U.S. itself.

 

Extra questions linger about the opaque Event 201 in New York on October 18, 2019: a rehearsal for a worldwide pandemic caused by a deadly virus – which happened to be coronavirus. This magnificent coincidence happened one month before the outbreak in Wuhan.

 

Event 201 was sponsored by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Economic Forum (WEF), the CIA, Bloomberg, John Hopkins Foundation and the UN. The World Military Games opened in Wuhan on the exact same day.

 

Irrespective of its origin, which is still not conclusively established, as much as Trump tweets about the “Chinese virus,” COVID-19 already poses immensely serious questions about biopolitics (where’s Foucault when we need him?) and bio-terror.

 

The working hypothesis of coronavirus as a very powerful but not Armageddon-provoking bio-weapon unveils it as a perfect vehicle for widespread social control — on a global scale.


Cuba Rises as Biotech Power

 

Just as a fully masked Xi visiting the Wuhan frontline last week was a graphic demonstration to the whole planet that China, with immense sacrifice, is winning the “people‘s war” against COVID-19, Russia, in a Sun Tzu move on Riyadh whose end result was a much cheaper barrel of oil, helped for all practical purposes to kick-start the inevitable recovery of the Chinese economy. This is how a strategic partnership works.

 

The chessboard is changing at breakneck speed. Once Beijing identified coronavirus as a bio-weapon attack the “people’s war” was launched with the full force of the state. Methodically. On a “whatever it takes” basis. Now we are entering a new stage, which will be used by Beijing to substantially recalibrate the interaction with the West, and under very different frameworks when it comes to the U.S. and the EU.

 

Soft power is paramount. Beijing sent an Air China flight to Italy carrying 2,300 big boxes full of masks bearing the script, “We are waves from the same sea, leaves from the same tree, flowers from the same garden.” China also sent a hefty humanitarian package to Iran, significantly aboard eight flights from Mahan Air — an airline under illegal, unilateral Trump administration sanctions.

 

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic could not have been more explicit: “The only country that can help us is China. By now, you all understood that European solidarity does not exist. That was a fairy tale on paper.”

 

Under harsh sanctions and demonized since forever, Cuba is still able to perform breakthroughs – even on biotechnology. The anti-viral Heberon – or Interferon Alpha 2b – a therapeutic, not a vaccine, has been used with great success in the treatment of coronavirus. A joint venture in China is producing an inhalable version, and at least 15 nations are already interested in importing the therapeutic.

 

Now compare all of the above with the Trump administration offering $1 billion to poach German scientists working at biotech firm Curevac, based in Thuringia, on an experimental vaccine against COVID-19, to have it as a vaccine “only for the United States.”

 

Social Engineering Psy-Op?

 

Sandro Mezzadra, co-author with Brett Neilson of the seminal “The Politics of Operations: Excavating Contemporary Capitalism,” is already trying to conceptualize where we stand now in terms of fighting COVID-19.

 

We are facing a choice between a Malthusian strand – inspired by social Darwinism – “led by the Johnson-Trump-Bolsonaro axis” and, on the other side, a strand pointing to the “requalification of public health as a fundamental tool,” exemplified by China, South Korea and Italy. There are key lessons to be learned from South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore.

 

The stark option, Mezzadra notes, is between a “natural population selection,” with thousands of dead, and “defending society” by employing “variable degrees of authoritarianism and social control.” It’s easy to imagine who stands to benefit from this social re-engineering, a 21st century remix of Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death.”

 

Amid so much doom and gloom, count on Italy to offer us Tiepolo-style shades of light. Italy chose the Wuhan option, with immensely serious consequences for its already fragile economy. Quarantined Italians remarkably reacted by singing on their balconies: a true act of metaphysical revolt.

Not to mention the poetic justice of the actual St. Corona (“crown” in Latin) being buried in the city of Anzu since the 9th century. St. Corona was a Christian killed under Marcus Aurelius in 165 AD, and has been for centuries one of the patron saints of pandemics.

 

Not even trillions of dollars raining from the sky by an act of divine Fed mercy were able to cure Covid-19. G-7 “leaders” had to resort to a videoconference to realize how clueless they are – even as China’s fight against coronavirus gave the West a head start of several weeks.

 

Shanghai-based Dr. Zhang Wenhong, one of China’s top infectious disease experts, whose analyses have been spot on so far, now says China has emerged from the darkest days in the “people’s war” against Covid-19. But he does not think this will be over by summer. Now extrapolate what he’s saying to the Western world.

 

It’s not even spring yet, and we already know it takes a virus to mercilessly shatter the Goddess of the Market. Last Friday, Goldman Sachs told no fewer than 1,500 corporations that there was no systemic risk. That was false.

 

New York banking sources told me the truth: systemic risk became way more severe in 2020 than in 1979, 1987 or 2008 because of the hugely heightened danger that the $1.5 quadrillion derivative market would collapse.

 

As the sources put it, history had never before seen anything like the Fed’s intervention via its little understood elimination of commercial bank reserve requirements, unleashing a potential unlimited expansion of credit to prevent a derivative implosion stemming from a total commodity and stock market collapse of all stocks around the world.

 

Those bankers thought it would work, but as we know by now all the sound and fury signified nothing. The ghost of a derivative implosion – in this case not caused by the previous possibility, the shutting down of the Strait of Hormuz – remains.

 

We are still barely starting to understand the consequences of Covid-19 for the future of neoliberal turbo-capitalism. What’s certain is that the whole global economy has been hit by an insidious, literally invisible circuit breaker. This may be just a “coincidence.” Or this may be, as some are boldly arguing, part of a possible, massive psy-op creating the perfect geopolitlcal and social engineering environment for full-spectrum dominance.

 

Additionally, along the hard slog down the road, with immense, inbuilt human and economic sacrifice, with or without a reboot of the world-system, a more pressing question remains: will imperial elites still choose to keep waging full-spectrum-dominance hybrid war against China?
