the weaponization of coronavirus: more evil than ever

Xi, not China this time; how coy of him:

‘Blame Xi, not China, for the impact of the coronavirus’, Austin Lowe, Opinion Contributor — 03/25/20, the (two paragraphs of a propaganda piece)

“To refer to the coronavirus as the “Chinese virus,” as Trump and other members of the GOP leadership have, is deeply problematic. It is also misleading. The severity of the virus has nothing to do with action or inaction by the Chinese people; on the contrary, many Chinese citizens should be lauded for their efforts to sound the alarm on the issue.

Lowe’s ‘sound the alarm’ link goes to ‘Li Wenliang: Coronavirus death of Wuhan doctor sparks anger’, 7 February 2020,], who I’d noted in my ‘Coronavirus Maliciously & Further Weaponized against China’, March 22 diary in blue ink:

Hamid’s ‘censored and detained’ link goes to Nick Kristof at the NYT, behind a paywall for me: ‘‘I Cannot Remain Silent’; A brave voice in China cries out about the regime’s mishandling of the coronavirus, Feb.12 2020, with a photo captioned: ‘When Dr. Li Wenliang warned about the coronavirus outbreak, he was attacked as a rumormonger. He died from the disease.

And yes, as I’d remembered, correctly, Dr. Li was an opthamologist, not a virologist, FWIW.  Although RT noted that China had apologized to his family for having issued an arrest warrant for hm, which I’d never heard before.

“The breadth of the global outbreak, however, is the natural result of the climate of fear, distrust, and paranoia in China’s political system under the leadership of Xi Jinping. China’s lack of transparency is nothing new. Its experience with the SARS epidemic serves as the most illustrative example in the case of similar infectious diseases. But the fact that public security officials attempting to quell dissent and information-spreading were China’s de facto “first responders” to the coronavirus is telling.”

From today, file under “Manufactured News’‘: ‘I read same reports as you’: US State Dept accuses China of putting conditions on Covid-19 aid, cites media when pressed on proof’

“The US State Department has accused Beijing of attaching ‘“strings” to aid given to countries battling Covid-19, but was unable to name specifics, only citing press reports, while also invoking a Chinese “coverup.”

“The official also made a passing reference to “the coverup that happened in Wuhan” – the Chinese city where Covid-19 was first observed. Though he was not pressed to provide further details, reports in US media have accused China of concealing information in the early stages of its outbreak. Most pointed to Li Wenliang, a Wuhan doctor who was reprimanded by Chinese authorities over “spreading rumors” about the virus in early December.”

“To date, the government – as well as Chinese billionaire Jack Ma, co-founder of e-commerce giant Alibaba – has distributed medical supplies to France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Iran, Iraq, the Philippines, and even the United States.”

Serbia as well, but the US I hadn’t known.

‘US puts NEW sanctions on Iran, despite calls for relief amid massive coronavirus outbreak’, 26 Mar, 2020, (three paragraphs)

“The US Treasury Department has slapped fresh sanctions on Iran, accusing several Iranian firms of aiding terrorism. Meanwhile, Tehran and the UN have called for the easing of sanctions amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Treasury sanctioned 15 individuals and five companies on Thursday, accusing them of supporting and acting “on behalf of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps-Qods Force,” considered by Washington to be a terrorist organization. Three construction companies, a petrochemical firm, and a religious organization are included on the list.

The sanctions come as Iran’s death toll from the Covid-19 coronavirus passes 2,000. Nearly 30,000 people in the Islamic Republic have been infected in Iran, which is among the worst-hit countries in the world by the deadly illness.” [snip]

“As part of its “maximum pressure” campaign against the government in Tehran, the Trump administration has applied over a thousand individual Iran-related sanctions since its withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA, or Iran nuclear deal) in 2018. However, UN Human Rights Commissioner Michelle Bachelet called for the easing of these penalties on Tuesday, given the ongoing pandemic.”

‘White Helmets use Covid-19 crisis to further US Coalition regime change agenda in Syria’, Vanessa Beeley, March 26, 2020,

“The White Helmet ‘coronavirus campaign’ is a cynical exploitation of the pandemic to weaponize it against the Syrian government. To really help the Syrians they should demand a lift of Western sanctions, not support them.

Five cases of coronavirus have now been reported by the health ministry in Syria. The country is subject to a curfew from 6pm to 6am as of March 25. Syria braces itself for a potential medical crisis.

The Syrian healthcare sector has been crippled under a “maximum pressure” economic sanctions campaign that has collectively punished the Syrian people for the duration of a war waged against them by the same governments inflicting the catastrophic economic damage. Hospitals and medical care centers have been targeted and occupied by the extremist armed groups throughout Syria, further reducing the Syrian state-ability to deal with the looming threat of an apparently rapacious pandemic.

White Helmets weaponize Covid-19 to ensure Syrian people suffer more

The Al-Qaeda-linked White Helmets group have sprung into action to defend the sanctions regime and to effectively condemn the huge majority of Syrian people to further misery should the pandemic take hold in Syria. An organisation with a history of collaboration with the US Coalition-sponsored armed groups in Syria, itself funded by the same governments, has been triggered by the billionaire-manufactured PR complex that manages and directs this shadow state construct.”

‘Venezuela FM rebukes Washington for barring emergency repatriation flight for 800+ citizens ‘stranded’ in US amid Covid-19 crisis’, 24 Mar, 2020,

“Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza has castigated Washington for blocking an emergency flight to bring home hundreds of Venezuelans stuck in the US, slamming sanctions on the country’s airlines.

As the US becomes one of the world’s major epicenters for the rapidly spreading coronavirus, Caracas has launched an effort to help more than 800 stranded citizens return home aboard a special flight arranged by the country’s flagship airline, Conviasa. But with US sanctions slapped on the carrier last month – barring the airline’s entire fleet from entering the country – the rescue operation has been halted in its tracks.

“We denounce that the US insists on its air blockade of Venezuela and still refuses to authorize direct humanitarian flights [through] @LAConviasa or other lines, to bring back more than 800 compatriots stranded in the US and registered in the system of our Chancellery,” Arreaza said in a tweet on Tuesday.”

Given lockdowns all over the US and planet, Jeff Bezos must be making mucho moolah hand-over fist.  It’s a Global Business, so: how many more world-wide?  Coronavirus lasts at leat 24 hours on cardboard.

‘Amazon Workers In At Least 10 Warehouses Test Positive For Coronavirus’,, March 25, 2020

“Amazon employees have also tested positive for the virus in at least eight other warehouses across the nation—in Brownstown, Michigan; Jacksonville, Florida; Joliet, Illinois; Katy, Texas; Moreno Valley, California; Oklahoma City; Shepherdsville, Kentucky; and Wallingford, Connecticut—according to Amazon employees, spokespeople and local news coverage. The company has temporarily closed some of these facilities in response.” [snip]

“We are supporting the individuals, following guidelines from local officials and are taking extreme measures to ensure the safety of all the employees at our sites,” said an Amazon spokesperson.”

Some Amazon workers in France had even walked off the job over ‘coronavirus fears’, and no; they won’t be paid.

‘Ingratitude: Top Italian newspaper calls Russian Covid-19 aid ‘useless’, implies Putin using medical mission for military scouting’,, March 26, 2020

But there is a bit of good news on the virus front:

‘China’s Hubei province, 1st Covid-19 epicenter, reports ZERO new cases as Beijing lifts regional lockdown’, 26 Mar, 2020,

“Hubei province, the origin point for the coronavirus and China’s hardest-hit area, has announced no new cases of the deadly illness, just as authorities repeal far-reaching travel restrictions imposed across the region.

The province saw zero new infections on Wednesday, having counted 67,000 cases in total since the outbreak began last December. The whole of Mainland China also confirmed no locally-transmitted cases, according to the National Health Commission, which disclosed only 67 new patients who arrived from abroad, spread across 13 provinces and municipalities.”

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.”

Note: Bono’s hideous coronavirus song is NOT part of the Good News…

'Why France is hiding a cheap and tested virus cure',, march 25, 2020

he opens:

"What’s going on in the fifth largest economy in the world arguably points to a major collusion scandal in which the French government is helping Big Pharma to profit from the expansion of Covid-19. Informed French citizens are absolutely furious about it.

My initial question to a serious, unimpeachable Paris source, jurist Valerie Bugault, was about the liaisons dangereuses between Macronism and Big Pharma and especially about the mysterious “disappearance” – more likely outright theft – of all the stocks of chloroquine in possession of the French government.

Respected Professor Christian Perronne talked about the theft live in one of France’s 24/7 info channels: “The central pharmacy for the hospitals announced today that they were facing a total rupture of stocks, that they were pillaged.”

With input from another, anonymous source, it’s now possible to establish a timeline that puts in much-needed perspective the recent actions of the French government."

China locked in hybrid war with US ; Fallout from Covid-19 outbreak puts Beijing and Washington on a collision course', march 17, 2020

"Beijing is carefully, incrementally shaping the narrative that, from the beginning of the coronovirus attack, the leadership knew it was under a hybrid war attack. Xi’s terminology 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 signaliing 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 US military.
Zhao’s explosive conclusion is that Covid-19 was already in effect in the US before being identified in Wuhan – due to the by now fully documented inability of US to test and verify differences compared with the flu."

now this part is far beyond my ken:

"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 US 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."

he then references the 201 facsimilation coronavirus pandemic by WHO, the gates foundation, bloomberg, but then adds thisthat was unknown to me:

"The World Military Games opened in Wuhan on the exact same day."

in reverse order these paragraphs in his Social engineering Psyop? section:

"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.

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."

i'll offer that prof. jacob levitch in NYC who's written a number of academic papers of gates and his foundation is fairly convinced of the same thing, and continues to paste in excerpts of his papers on gates on twitter. he'd pinned this one to the top on march 12th:

You accused me, in another essay, of being "one of them", referring to China's initial mishandling of the viral situation. In this article you repeat exactly what I said in my prior comment.

Lowe’s ‘sound the alarm’ link goes to ‘Li Wenliang: Coronavirus death of Wuhan doctor sparks anger’, 7 February 2020,], who I’d noted in my ‘Coronavirus Maliciously & Further Weaponized against China’, March 22 diary in blue ink:

Hamid’s ‘censored and detained’ link goes to Nick Kristof at the NYT, behind a paywall for me: ‘‘I Cannot Remain Silent’; A brave voice in China cries out about the regime’s mishandling of the coronavirus, Feb.12 2020, with a photo captioned: ‘When Dr. Li Wenliang warned about the coronavirus outbreak, he was attacked as a rumormonger. He died from the disease.

And yes, as I’d remembered, correctly, Dr. Li was an opthamologist, not a virologist, FWIW. Although RT noted that China had apologized to his family for having issued an arrest warrant for hm, which I’d never heard before.

The above quotation was precisely what I wrote, which inspired the accusatory guilt-by-association implication of "one of them". I do go on to discuss the possibility that the Wu Flu was implanted in China during the opening days of a joint US, China, multinational military exposition. George Webb has been discussing this prospect at length. He even putatively identified Maatje Benassi, an intel-related person with US military connections as having been at Fort Detrick (maybe) to receive samples of Fort Derrick engineered viral bombs, which she, or someone with her in Hubei during this exposition into the unknowing populace.

What a coinkydink! Military games in Hubei.
Persons with Fort Detrick access go to Wuhan
First case of COVID-19 (vintage 2019, Chateau Detrick) appears within days. Holy smokes, how amazing is that, Batman?

Event 201 in which all the discussion focused on PR (messaging, flooding the zone) and resource acquisition. None of the filmed discussions related to providing medical care. Amazing loss of focus. Except Event 201's focus was never on resolving the pandemic, but only how to promote and to profit from it. I bet every one of the participants had nice supplies of HCQ and AZ. Wanna bet? How about False-faced Fauci, a person for whom I now lack respect. He said he "respected" non-medical Doctor Tedros, describing him as interesting. This is like describing Reinhard Heydrich as interesting.

Obergruppensführer Reinhard Heydrich

Reinhard Tristan Eugen Heydrich (/ˈhaɪdrɪk/; German: [ˈʁaɪnhaʁt ˈtʁɪstan ˈɔʏɡn̩ ˈhaɪdʁɪç] (About this soundlisten); 7 March 1904 – 4 June 1942) was a high-ranking German SS and police official during the Nazi era and a main architect of the Holocaust. He was chief of the Reich Main Security Office (including the Gestapo, Kripo, and SD). He was also Stellvertretender Reichsprotektor (Deputy/Acting Reich-Protector) of Bohemia and Moravia. He served as president of the International Criminal Police Commission (ICPC, later known as Interpol) and chaired the January 1942 Wannsee Conference which formalised plans for the "Final Solution to the Jewish Question"—the deportation and genocide of all Jews in German-occupied Europe.

Many historians regard Heydrich as the darkest figure within the Nazi regime;[5][6][7] Adolf Hitler described him as "the man with the iron heart".[4] He was the founding head of the Sicherheitsdienst (Security Service, SD), an intelligence organisation charged with seeking out and neutralising resistance to the Nazi Party via arrests, deportations, and murders. He helped organise Kristallnacht, a series of coordinated attacks against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and parts of Austria on 9–10 November 1938. The attacks were carried out by SA stormtroopers and civilians and presaged the Holocaust. Upon his arrival in Prague, Heydrich sought to eliminate opposition to the Nazi occupation by suppressing Czech culture and deporting and executing members of the Czech resistance. He was directly responsible for the Einsatzgruppen, the special task forces that travelled in the wake of the German armies and murdered more than two million people by mass shooting and gassing, including 1.3 million Jews.

Ja, Wir müssen haben einige Heydrich nun!

Wait, we do. We have several. Start with the fun-loving George Soros who helped his SS godfather collect loot from deported Jews in WW2. Then add the charitable Rothschilds who lent money to both sides in several wars since the early 18th century. Add to this, charitable Wilhelm Gates, and H. Rodent Klinton whose disease-infested paws seem to be everywhere.

So, now, I retreat to my herbal garden to avail myself of aromatics. Prosit, kameraden!

corona simulation response by the WEF, gates, etc. in my 'doesn't the panic warrant some skepticism' diary, but what you'd written that i'd objected to was this:

Dr. Wen Liang, martyred by the CCP, was the first to publicly state there was a "new kind of pneumonia. Dr Wen was an ophthalmologist. and i've answered it on your thread.

as far as i know, none of this was in your OP, but then i haven't really learned to read quite yet. perhaps in videos, perhaps in comments?

I do go on to discuss the possibility that the Wu Flu was implanted in China during the opening days of a joint US, China, multinational military exposition. George Webb has been discussing this prospect at length. He even putatively identified Maatje Benassi, an intel-related person with US military connections as having been at Fort Detrick (maybe) to receive samples of Fort Derrick engineered viral bombs, which she, or someone with her in Hubei during this exposition into the unknowing populace.

this one was above a video at dissident voice noting it was referencing this from the daily beast. remembering how some of their authors had trashed, lied, and besmirched ulian assange in the past gives me pause, although this is an unfamiliar author, and it does sound entirely plausible.

White House Pushes U.S. Officials to Criticize China For Coronavirus ‘Cover-Up’, march 21

"As the number of coronavirus cases continues to grow at a rapid pace in the U.S., the White House is launching a communications plan across multiple federal agencies that focuses on accusing Beijing of orchestrating a “cover-up” and creating a global pandemic, according to two U.S. officials and a government cable obtained by The Daily Beast.

The cable, sent to State Department officials Friday, lays out in detail the circumstances on the ground in China, including data on coronavirus cases and deaths, the local business environment and transportation restrictions. But it also issues guidelines for how U.S. officials should answer questions on, or speak about, the coronavirus and the White House’s response in relation to China.

The talking points appear to have originated in the National Security Council. One section of the cable reads “NSC Top Lines: [People’s Republic of China] Propaganda and Disinformation on the Wuhan Virus Pandemic.”

“Chinese Communist Party officials in Wuhan and Beijing had a special responsibility to inform the Chinese people and the world of the threat, since they were the first to learn of it,” the cable reads. “Instead, the... government hid news of the virus from its own people for weeks, while suppressing information and punishing doctors and journalists who raised the alarm. The Party cared more about its reputation than its own people’s suffering.”...and so on.

"It Is Not China, But The Western World That Should Be Defined As The “Real Sick Man”, By Andre Vltchek, March 27, info clearing house

Not long ago, the Wall Street Journal insulted China, calling it “the Real Sick Man of Asia”. China retaliated, and then the U.S. counter-retaliated. Emotions have been running high, journalists got deported.

Suddenly, various Chinese officials expressed publicly what many in both China and Russia have been, for weeks, articulating in sotto voce: that it was perhaps the U.S. military establishment, which brought the new type of coronavirus (COVID-19) to Wuhan, in order to harm China and bring the world back, through complex backroads, under the West’s control.

Suddenly, the world feels very uncomfortable. The way it is governed is clearly perverse. People do not always know why, they just feel frightened, prickly and insecure. Actually, they always have, during the last few decades, but this is somehow becoming “too much”.

Countries do not trust each other. People do not trust each other. People do not trust their governments. Capitalism is despised, but nations have been robbed of alternatives. I work all over the world, and I observe all this. What I see, I do not like.

Increasingly, I am fearful that what has been set in motion by Washington and London, may not end well. That a tragedy is waiting right around the corner." [large snip]

"Something has gone wrong. Almost everything has. Humanity is facing tremendous danger. Why? Because it does not understand itself. Its dreams have been reduced to some low, pathetic, sad ambitions. Its lofty ideals that were formed over long centuries have been belittled by the Western nihilist narrative.

And then, a new coronavirus hit.

Do not underestimate the coronavirus! It may have the mortality rate of an ordinary flu, but it is much more dangerous than that. Its danger is predominately psychological and philosophical, much more than medical.

It arrived, unexpectedly, and illustrated to the world, that there is no global unity, no solidarity, anymore.

Countries are acting and reacting in extremely brutal ways. It is frightening. It all feels like some of the bad, second-rate horror films produced by Hollywood.
"What is essential is that the logic itself has collapsed. The behavior of many countries has become irrational, if the rationale is supposed to be synonymous with the advancement of humanity and improvement of the lives of human beings. Now things make sense only when seen from the point of view of the desire to control and usurp, plunder and humiliate.

And the coronavirus?

Is the United States trying to take advantage of the situation, to monopolize the cure, and to save its economy and currency, at the expense of billions worldwide?

On March 15, 2020, The Sun reported:

“Donald Trump aides ‘offered huge sums to a German company in a bid to grab the coronavirus vaccine for Americans only.’”

One day later, on 16 March, 2020, the Mail Online, amplified the story:

“German officials are trying to stop the Trump administration from luring German biopharmeceutical company CureVac to the US to get its experimental coronavirus vaccines exclusively for Americans.

President Donald Trump has offered funds to lure the company CureVac to the US. The German government has made counter-offers to make the company stay, according to a report in German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

An unidentified German government source told the paper Trump is trying to secure the scientists’ work exclusively, and would do anything to get a vaccine for the United States – ‘but only for the United States.


The behavior of the Empire could easily make one sicker than the coronavirus would itself.

The United States occupies and antagonizes countries and then it punishes them when they try to protect themselves. Israel does the same. And so, do Indonesia, India, and NATO as a block. Turkey is turning into a maniac. Iran, Venezuela and others are screaming, brutalized for absolutely no reason by sanctions and embargoes. Russia is being constantly smeared, just for helping injured nations, in the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.

I watch all this and I wonder: how much further can all this go? Is all this banditry and idiocy going to go on from now on, and forever accepted as a normalcy?

But back to the coronavirus. It is all connected to what I mentioned above, isn’t it? Billions of people are now being stripped of their rights and will, pushed around, and fully controlled, everything justified by a disease with the mortality rate of an ordinary flu? And do people notice that the victims are now being treated like criminals, something that would have been unimaginable just a couple of decades ago.

China, infected by the U.S. or not, is being continuously insulted, isolated and smeared. Western anti-Chinese propaganda kicked in, almost from the start of the epidemy. How ugly; how monstrous!
China reacted in totally the opposite way: when Italy got infected, Chinese medics offered their help. They flew to Italy with medicine and equipment.

And China is not alone. Whenever disasters strike, anywhere in the world, Cuban doctors and rescue commandos take off, as long as they are allowed to travel and help.

Venezuela, too. It used to supply cheap fuel, even to needy people who happened to be citizens of its arch-tormentor – the United States.

And Russia, in whatever form (as the biggest Soviet Republic, or as the Russian Federation), it has been helping dozens and dozens of decimated nations: by treating their sick, educating their students, building infrastructure, spreading culture through books and music, all in local languages.

Russia does not talk much: it just does, performs, helps. And so do China, Cuba and others.

I want to see the world united. I want to experience humanity embarking on a beautiful project: improving the planet, searching, together, for an egalitarian system, with no misery, no incurable illnesses, no depravity.

But I am not naïve. I see what the West and its extreme capitalism and imperialism are doing to the world.

And I am convinced that only the classic isms are capable of evoking compassion and solidarity in the people. Propagandists in Washington and London tell you the opposite; they will lie to you that Communism and socialism are dead, or at least totally outdated. Do not trust them; you know that their goals have nothing to do with improving life on our planet. Whatever you hear from them, trust the opposite."

since event 201:

About the Event 201 exercise

Event 201 was a 3.5-hour pandemic tabletop exercise that simulated a series of dramatic, scenario-based facilitated discussions, confronting difficult, true-to-life dilemmas associated with response to a hypothetical, but scientifically plausible, pandemic. 15 global business, government, and public health leaders were players in the simulation exercise that highlighted unresolved real-world policy and economic issues that could be solved with sufficient political will, financial investment, and attention now and in the future.

The exercise consisted of pre-recorded news broadcasts, live “staff” briefings, and moderated discussions on specific topics. These issues were carefully designed in a compelling narrative that educated the participants and the audience.

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, World Economic Forum, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation jointly propose these recommendations.

it's been fairly clear that the elites would like to form a suprantional global govt. to control the pandemics, the economics, and the people.

it begins: ‘Gordon Brown calls for global government to tackle coronavirus; Ex-PM at centre of 2008 banks rescue suggests taskforce of leaders and health experts',, the guardian, march 26

"Gordon Brown has urged world leaders to create a temporary form of global government to tackle the twin medical and economic crises caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The former Labour prime minister, who was at the centre of the international efforts to tackle the impact of the near-meltdown of the banks in 2008, said there was a need for a taskforce involving world leaders, health experts and the heads of the international organisations that would have executive powers to coordinate the response.

A virtual meeting of the G20 group of developed and developing countries, chaired by Saudi Arabia, will be held on Thursday, but Brown said it would have been preferable to have also included the UN security council.

Despite Donald Trump’s “America first” policy, he said it was still possible to get support for an emergency body with executive powers.
The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund needed an increase in their financial firepower to cope with the impact of the crisis on low- and middle-income countries, he said.

i'll add the next two pieces of news in another comment, as i'd lost the whole mess earlier.

terrifying on every level:

Trump greenlights call-up of one MILLION reservists to battle Covid-19
27 Mar, 2020 (poorly written, thus confusing)

Run for the hills! Pentagon sends teams into MOUNTAIN BUNKERS as pandemic preparations go into full swing , 28 Mar, 2020 (NOT FUNNY, ya cretins)

NORAD is under cheyenne mountain, below pikes peak,c. springs, colorado

The US’ Northern Command has sent teams of essential staff deep underground to wait out the Covid-19 pandemic. On the surface, more than a million grunts won’t be quite as cocooned.

Air Force General Terrence O’Shaughnessy heads up the US’ Northern Command, as well as the North American Aerospace Defense Command – a joint US/Canadian operation that monitors the skies over North America for missile and airborne threats. Earlier this week, O’Shaughnessy told reporters via Facebook that some of his watch teams would be moved from their usual command center at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado to a number of hardened underground bunkers.

One of these facilities is the Cheyenne Mountain bunker complex, a warren of tunnels buried under 2,000 feet (610m) of granite, and sealed behind blast doors designed to withstand a 30 megaton nuclear explosion.

Our dedicated professionals of the NORAD and NORTHCOM command and control watch have left their homes, said goodbye to their families, and are isolated from everyone to ensure they can stand the watch each and every day to defend our homeland,” O’Shaughnessy said. He also said that personnel sent underground will share the bunker with other members of the military, but he is “not at liberty to discuss who’s moving in there.”

Another team has been sent to an undisclosed location, O’Shaughnessy added.
