Coronavirus Crisis Continues – Now Affecting All Aspects of Our Lives

Day after day, we are getting bombarded with grisly statistics that underscore the true scope of the current coronavirus crisis.

And while there a still a few fools and miscreants out there uttering their banal and pernicious announcements – “It’s just like the flu”… “Only one in a thousand who get infected will die”…”The Chinese launched this sneak-attack on America” – the reality of what’s going on is slowly starting to sink in across the country: the coronavirus is going to change our lives – now and forever.

More than 1 million people have already been infected worldwide – and that’s only the ones that we’ve tested (Many scientists believe that the real number of those who have already been infected is several times that).

What is a coronavirus?

More than 50,000 have died from COVID-19 worldwide – and, again, that’s only the ones we know about.

The U.S. has now confirmed more than 250,000 cases of COVID-19 – and more than 6,000 fatalities (These were the relevant figures around 6:00 PM on April 2nd –  they will have gone up by the time you read this).

The latest estimates for the U.S. indicate that we will incur 140,000–240,000 fatalities – AND THAT’S ONLY IF ALL THE RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND STAY-AT-HOME RULES ARE IMPLEMENTED.

Which, unfortunately, is never going to happen.

Which means that those projections are low – way low.

*****

Stay-At-Home Orders

As of mid-day on April 2nd, 38 States – plus Washington, DC and Puerto Rico – had issued stay-at-home orders to their residents.

The states with stay-at-home orders are Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Taken together, those states represent approximately 90% of the United States’ population – about 297 million people – that are now under some form of lockdown.

Although many health experts have called on the President to do so, the U.S. has not yet issued a nationwide stay-at-home order.

Nor has the U.S. imposed any restrictions on travel by air, bus, subway, or train.

And despite President’s Trump pronouncement that people who fly on airplanes or travel by train are tested before they depart – and after they arrive at their destinations – that is simply not true.

The world as we know it has changed right before our very eyes.

And some of those changes will be permanent.

*****

Federal Prisoners Are on Quarantine

On April 1st, the Bureau of Prisons implemented a 14-day quarantine for all federal prisoners.

During that period, the approximately 175,000 inmates who are currently incarcerated throughout the country in 122 federal institutions will essentially be on “lockdown” in a belated attempt to reduce the spread of the coronavirus in those facilities.

That means they will be spending the vast majority of their time – 22 to 23 hours per day – in their assigned cells/quarters.

Limited groups in each unit will be allowed out at staggered times to take showers, make phone calls, read and send emails, do laundry, etc. But no group gatherings will be allowed – not even for religious services.

During the 14-day lockdown, all daily meals will be brought to the inmates – and only limited, if any, commissary will be available. Most facilities have also suspended all library services – which means that inmates will not be able to get any new reading materials for the next two weeks.

And unlike their state prison counterparts, federal prisoners do not have TVs in their cells.

MK10ART Zombie Raniere

At long last, the BOP has also announced that it will not allow new inmates to be placed with the existing inmates in any facility. Why it waited so long to implement such a policy is simply inexplicable.

“The agency updated its quarantine and isolation procedures to require all newly admitted inmates to BOP, whether in a sustained community transition area or not, be assessed using a screening tool and temperature check. This includes all new intakes, detainees, commitments, writ returns from judicial proceedings, and parole violators, regardless of their method of arrival,” the Bureau announced on April 1st.

Courts Postponing Hearings & Trials – and Expanding the Use of Video and Teleconferencing

Courts across the country are postponing hearings and trials – and expanding the use of video and teleconferencing to limit the need for people to appear in person.

Typical U.S. District Court Courtroom

In the Eastern District of New York – which is where Keith Raniere and his co-defendants are waiting to be sentenced – the following rules have been adopted:

  • All jury trials that were scheduled to begin before April 27th have been continued.
  • Compliance with all trial-specific deadlines in civil and criminal cases that were scheduled to begin before April 27th is now at the discretion of the assigned judge.
  • Jury trials that began before March 16th will proceed as scheduled (Any “Guilty” verdicts coming out of these trials will almost certainly have a good chance of being reversed on appeal).
  • Individual judges may continue to hold hearings, conferences and bench trials at their discretion – and may, where practicable, do so by telephone or video conferencing.
  • Alternatively, judges may also adjourn matters or deadlines – or stay litigation – where in-person meetings, interviews, depositions or travel would be necessary to prepare for any such proceedings.
  • Initial appearances and arraignments will continue to take place in the ordinary course of business – or, where practicable or necessary, may be conducted remotely pursuant to procedures established by the court.
  • Detention and bail review proceedings shall be scheduled with the approval of the assigned district judge or duty magistrate judge.

As noted in previous posts, many sentencing hearings are being postponed in federal and state courts. This will likely be true with regard to all of the NXIVM defendants.

Per reports from several of the people who wanted to provide “Impact Statements” at the sentencing hearings of Clare Bronfman and Keith Raniere, both of those hearings are going to be postponed again in the near future.

*****

Are Former Dr. Brandon Porter & Soon-To-Be Former Doctor Danielle Roberts Doing Anything to Help Out?

Brandon Porter has already lost his license to practice medicine because of the various “medical experiments” he conducted at the behest of  Keith Raniere – and because he failed to report the local epidemic that broke out at the Silver Bay facility during Vanguard Week 2016.

Marie White’s portrayal of Brandon Porter

Dr. Danielle Roberts will likely suffer the same fate because (a) she branded dozens of DOS slaves in unsanitary conditions and without any pain-reduction medications – and (b) she also failed to report the Vanguard Week 2016 epidemic.

Dr. Danielel Roberts

Porter has moved back to his native Iowa – presumably to live in his parents’ basement along with his wife and kids.

And Roberts is currently awaiting a hearing that will likely result in the loss of her license to practice medicine.

So, what, if anything, are these two medical stalwarts doing to help deal with the current coronavirus crisis?

I don’t know – but knowing how Raniere thinks and taught his followers – probably not very much.

*****

More To Follow

Most of the changes that have occurred will turn out to be temporary in nature. Once we’ve figured out how to treat people who contract COVID-19 – and, better yet, we create a vaccine to prevent people from contracting it –  we’ll go back to doing things the way we did before the onslaught of the coronavirus.

But others will become permanent changes in the way we do things in our country. What say you, Frank report readers? What changes that we’ve made because of the coronavirus crisis do you think will become permanent?

*****

Note to Bangkok (or whatever asinine alias you’re using these days): I will not respond to any of your imbecilic comments regarding this post because I consider you to be a true danger to others – and really not all that different than Keith Raniere. So, bang away, “kok” – and rest assured that Karma has a way of extracting justice from everyone, any scumbags like you.

  • AnonyMaker & All Adults,

    RE Bangkok’s Antagonism and Caustic-Posting:

    “Bangkok’s frenetic spamming of the Frank Report is a strange phenomenon to witness. Something’s got him worked into a tizzy”……..

    …..Bangkok is artfully trolling you, Joe O’Hara, Heidi, Klaviger, and all of the other adults on this website.

    Stop responding too him!

    You are playing his game by responding.
    Every-time you respond you only fuel the fire.

    Bangkok is a young man with too much time on his hands. Playing video games and physical self-gratification can only occupy an individual’s time for so long.

    I personally don’t care when Bangkok insults me. I enjoy the banter and the vulgar barbs; provided its between Scott, Shadow, Bangkok, and myself.

    Your response/comment above is like throwing a barrel-of-oil on a three alarm house fire.

    Your comment above addressing “Bangkok” by name is like Christmas Day for a troll like Bangkok.

    AnonyMaker…..I am going to go out on a limb and guess you either have no children or none of your children are pains in the ass…..Otherwise you would understand who and what Bangkok is…….

    A kid who enjoys driving adults crazy.

    Frank and I get Bangkok. Why can’t you?

    The solution is simple…

    … STOP RESPONDING!!!!!!

    • I admire your self control, sir.

      You’re almost as well composed as Frank.

      But you’re forgetting one simple thing…

      Libtards (like AnonyFaker) do not have enough SELF CONTROL to stop themselves from responding to every idea that TRIGGERS them into a state of anger. 🙂

      He can’t stop responding to my FACTUAL posts (about the virus) any more than your wife can stop banging her male clients when you think she’s only meeting with them.

      A zebra can’t change their stripes and AnonyFaker can’t stop making a JACK ASS out of himself by getting all worked up by my factual posts.

      Oh… and kindly have a nice day, sir. 🙂

      • Oh…..Bangkok….Bangkok….my dear boy.

        I wager my wife has slept with less men than your mom. I go even further to say your mom has engaged in more sexually deviant and amoral behavior as well.

        Everyone knows LA SoCal girls putout like bunnies in heat. I bet your mom is wetter than a baby wipe.

  • Bangkok’s frenetic spamming of the Frank Report is a strange phenomenon to witness. Something’s got him worked into a tizzy, probably ultimately fear of the reality being faced – denial is often the first stage of dealing with things someone is unable to cope with emotionally or psychologially – which this article sort of explains:

    Researchers are tracking another pandemic, too—of coronavirus misinformation

    “Historically, a lot of misinformation is a byproduct of the natural response that people have to a disaster event. There’s a lot of uncertainty about the impacts of the event and what actions we can take to respond to it. That uncertainty contributes to anxiety, and in those conditions of high uncertainty and anxiety, people try to come together to try to make sense of what’s going on, to participate in what we call collective sensemaking. Rumoring is a part of that, as people try to find the best information. Sometimes rumors turn out to be false, but rumors can also turn out to be true.”

  • Meanwhile the Cult of Islam

    In COVID-19 time, how do you solve a problem like Sharia?

    Although the mainstream media is perfectly ready to target Christians for violating the new social distancing and lockdown rules, they are remarkably quiet about Islam. This is remarkable when one considers European Islam’s nonchalant, even arrogant, response to COVID-19.

    Raymond Ibrahim has already written here about the Islamic belief that Muslims are cleaner than infidels and, therefore, immune to disease:

    Such is the contention Muslims around the world are triumphantly making. Thus, the recent article, “Coronavirus – an Islamic Perspective,” opens up as follows:

    Allāh has blessed us with a religion that is complete and perfect for all times and places. Allāh tells us in the Qur’ān:

    “This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favour upon you and have approved for you Islam as your religion”

    • A quick fact-check shows that’s a delusional, fallacious strawman argument – I can’t find a single case of a mosque refusing to close, unlike the defiant fundies, and in fact they seem more compliant that just about anyone:

      Suburban mosques cancel Friday prayers amid COVID-19 concerns
      https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200321/suburban-mosques-cancel-friday-prayers-amid-covid-19-concerns

      Palestinians close Al-Aqsa Mosque, Dome of the Rock over coronavirus fears
      https://www.timesofisrael.com/palestinians-close-al-aqsa-mosque-dome-of-the-rock-over-coronavirus-fears/

      The biggest group refusing to close places of worship is actually the Catholic Church.

      Your forebears in the Klan would have told you that the papists and their teeming hordes of followers were indeed the great threat to America – especially the dirty Italians and the non-whites from the former Islamic Emirate of Sicily (even Mafia is an Arabic word). Maybe you should consider what the real threat to America might be, by your own standards.

      • Real threat to America? Um, do you mean White Supremisists or just The Don himself?

        I vote it’s “the Narcisii” aka “Luciferians” of any race, creed, color, Nation or Religeon.

        Was it “Friend of the Good Guys”
        who was present at a DNC affair with Dennis Burke, Emiliano Salinas and Scientologist, Senor Lopez, where “cloning” science was all the rage of the parlance?

        …Think the Narcissi got their cryogenic clones frozen and safely stored in time for this crisis before warning the rest of us?

  • Bangkok’s frenetic spammings of the tweets of armchair theorists and conspiracy cranks are all easy debunked, but hardly worth the time to address individually – plus that just falls into his perverse troll game, which is to try to waste the time of people who, unlike himself, actually have lives. But let’s just pick one prime example.

    Of course few people are going to emergency rooms these days – duh:

    Unexpected Consequence of COVID-19 Crisis: Empty Emergency Rooms

    ‘News of nearly-empty emergency rooms may come as a surprise to most Americans amid media reports of a national healthcare system pushed to the brink. The reason, as counterintuitive as it may seem, is the coronavirus itself.

    First, COVID-19 cases are immediately secured elsewhere in the hospital without entering the ER, segregating the infected patients from the hospital population. At the same time, fears of the virus are discouraging some people who might otherwise go to the ER for a relatively minor medical issue to stay home. Studies show that many Americans, including more than half of Millennials, use ERs or emergency care facilities for non-emergency care.’

    https://www.insidesources.com/unexpected-consequence-of-covid-19-crisis-empty-emergency-rooms/

    • You haven’t debunked anything. Talk about an arm chair bullshit artist….look in the mirror Slick. You have no fucking clue WHO is lying to you and what the actual facts are. As this plays out you will look more and more like the rabid crazed fool you are.

  • Not so interesting to check in on the Bangkok Report. The man behind this avatar seems unhinged and also very very stupid. Expect your viewing figures will have plummeted, Frank. Not so many people convinced of your ‘innocence’ after your cynical use of this crisis for your own ends. Whatever they might be.

  • FRAUD has been detected.

    The media is fraudulently reporting deaths of Italian ‘doctors’ using laughable standards.

    What standards?

    Well, they are counting ‘retired psychiatrists’ or ‘retired pediatricians’ who were 90 years old among these doctor deaths, LOL, which gives the FALSE impression that these were ‘working doctors’ who were fighting to save lives in the hospital — when they weren’t.

    But that’s not all.

    To cover up their fraudulent reporting, they began deleting the date of birth for every deceased doctor AFTER critics began reporting this fraud (to prevent people from seeing these facts).

    Luckily, the web page showing their ‘date of birth’ was saved at a web archive below:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20200328152430/https://portale.fnomceo.it/elenco-dei-medici-caduti-nel-corso-dellepidemia-di-covid-19/

    Quote from article (translated from Italian):
    =======================================
    Various media reported that more than 50 doctors in Italy have already died „during the corona crisis“, like soldiers in a battle. A glance at the corresponding list, however, shows that most of the deceased are retired doctors of various kinds, including 90-year-old psychiatrists and pediatricians, many of whom may have died of natural causes.
    =======================================

    Have a nice day. 🙂

  • Holy moley.

    Fraudulent media exposed.

    CBS aired hospital footage from Italy but claimed it was from a NY hospital.

    Quote:

    The US television station CBS was caught using footage from an Italian intensive care unit in a piece on the current situation in New York. In fact, dozens of recordings by citizen journalists show that it is currently very quiet in the hospitals on the US East and West Coast, described as „war zones“ by the media. Even the „corpse refrigerator trucks“ prominently shown in the media are unused and empty.

    Have a nice day. 🙂

  • Quote:

    Biophysicist Felix Scholkmann has visualized the fact that in the US (as in the rest of the world), it is not the number of „infected“ people that is increasing exponentially, but the number of tests. The number of „infected“ people in relation to the number of tests remains basically constant (oscillating between 10 and 20%), which speaks against a current viral epidemic.

    Have a nice day. 🙂

    • Of course, last week Anonyfaker and his little shrink buddy were pushing it as though it was their religious mantra.

  • Even the liberal BBC is asking about the fraudulent labeling of deaths due to coronavirus…

    Quote from article:
    =======================
    The BBC asks, „Is coronavirus causing the deaths?„, and replies, „It could be the major cause, a contributory factor or simply present when they are dying of something else.“ For example, an 18-year-old man was reported as the „youngest Corona victim“ after a positive test the day before his death. However, the hospital later reported that the young man had died of a serious pre-existing condition.
    =======================

    Have a nice day. 🙂

  • Austrian authorities have acknowledged that people dying of other illnesses are classified as dying from “COVID” even if they caught the virus while laying in the hospital and dying of another illness unrelated to COVID symptoms. LOL.

    Quote from article:
    ===========================
    Austria: In Austria, too, „corona deaths“ are apparently defined „very liberally“, as the media report: „Do you also count as a corona death if you are infected with the virus but die of something else? Yes, say Rudi Anschober and Bernhard Benka, members of the Corona Task Force in the Ministry of Health. „There is a clear rule at present: Died with the corona virus or died from the corona virus both count for the statistics.“ No difference is made as to what the patient actually died of. In other words, a 90-year-old man who dies with a fracture of the femoral neck and becomes infected with corona in the hours prior to his death is also counted as corona death. To name but one example.“
    ===========================

    AnonyFaker and Flaccid Paul can’t sugarcoat this FACT with liberal gibberish, lol.

    This is how all worldwide death figures from COVID are reported.

    We just can’t get an accurate death number because anybody who dies WITH coronavirus is reported as dying FROM coronavirus, even in cases where they died of other causes.

    Have a nice day. 🙂

  • World renowned virologist questions ‘media panic’ and advises people to stop watching TV and to relax a bit more…

    Quote from article:
    ===========================
    Professor John Oxford of Queen Mary University London, one of the world’s leading virologists and influenza specialists, comes to the following conclusion regarding Covid19: „Personally, I would say the best advice is to spend less time watching TV news which is sensational and not very good. Personally, I view this Covid outbreak as akin to a bad winter influenza epidemic. In this case we have had 8000 deaths this last year in the ‘at risk’ groups viz over 65% people with heart disease etc. I do not feel this current Covid will exceed this number. We are suffering from a media epidemic!“

  • Oh my god.

    Germany is confirming that autopsies are being discouraged for Coronavirus cases —– which means finding out the TRUE REASON for each death can never be 100% accurate.

    This is likely to FALSELY INFLATE the Coronavirus ‘death count’ because it’s impossible to know for sure what caused a person’s death in many of these cases where other serious health issues brought them into the ICU in the first place —– UNLESS an autopsy is conducted.

    Science is being replaced by nonsense. LOL.

    People seem to WANT higher inflated death counts without VERIFYING for sure what caused EACH and EVERY death.

    Quote from article/video:
    ===========================
    Germany: The German Robert Koch Institute now even advises against autopsies of test-positive deceased persons because the risk of droplet infection by aerosols is allegedly too high. In many cases, this means that the real cause of death can no longer be determined.

    A specialist in pathology comments on this as follows: „Who might think evil of it! Up to now, it has been a matter of course for pathologists to carry out autopsies with appropriate safety precautions even in the case of infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, tuberculosis, PRION diseases, etc. It is quite remarkable that in a disease that is killing thousands of patients all over the world and bringing the economy of entire countries to a virtual standstill, only very few autopsy findings are available (six patients from China). From the point of view of both the epidemic police and the scientific community, there should be a particularly high level of public interest in autopsy findings. However, the opposite is the case. Are you afraid of finding out the true causes of death of the positively tested deceased? Could it be that the numbers of corona deaths would then melt away like snow in the spring sun?“

  • Holy Shit!

    You must watch this video!

    New videos have emerged from CITIZEN REPORTERS who decided to film for themselves what the TRUE atmosphere is like inside hospitals.

    This is a MUST WATCH video…

  • New York City is lying about Chinese virus death rates

    The mass hysteria over COVID-19 in the U.S. is driven in large measure by misleading statistics and bad math about the disease’s body count.

    Now that New York has become the epicenter of the pandemic in the United States, we are now regularly inundated on cable TV news with the latest pandemic statistics from the city. The statistics grow gloomier by the hour.

    In New York City, the death of anyone who dies who tests positive for COVID-19 is counted as a coronavirus death. This is the case even if the coronavirus failed to play a significant role in the person’s passing or illness.

    New York City’s government isn’t the only one worldwide doing this.

    In an open letter to Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany, Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, Professor Emeritus of Medical Microbiology at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, wrote:

    “[T]he mistake is being made worldwide to report virus-related deaths as soon as it is established that the virus was present at the time of death – regardless of other factors. This violates a basic principle of infectiology: only when it is certain that an agent has played a significant role in the disease or death may a diagnosis be made.”

    Infectiology, also known as infectology, is “a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis, management and treatment of various infectious or contagious diseases,” according to Medihub.

    Why do the rules of infectiology not apply to the Chinese virus?

  • Holy shit.

    Europe’s unity is fracturing as richer countries (like Germany) refuse to dig deep into their pockets to aid the poorer countries like Spain and Italy.

    https://twitter.com/BBCWorld/status/1246025924765761536

    We’ve all been told that Europe’s grand vision of ‘unity’ and ‘equality’ is the future.

    We’ve all been told that the ‘greedy’ USA is not generous enough with its neighbors, LOL.

    Yet when push comes to shove (and people are dying in Europe) the wealthier European countries are giving the MIDDLE FINGER to their southern neighbors. LOL.

    In Europe, it’s every man for himself.

    In Europe, it’s FUCK everybody else.

    So much for the European vision of unity.

    Have a nice day. 🙂

  • Anonyfaker and Paul’s Queen has spoken. She is of the same intelligence of her two subjects

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

    @AOC
    COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities.

    Why? Because the chronic toll of redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions.

    Inequality is a comorbidity. COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations.

    • AOC talks a lot and does nothing. She once called for an investigation into Mark Epstein, just after I talked to this guy
      and wanted the same, but she never responded to my call. She wants other people to do things.
      She is so AWOL in her district that you might find WANTED POSTERS of her – especially when she was on the campaign
      trail with BS (Bernie Sanders).
      I am supporting her opponent, Miguel Hernandez, who was recently on Michael Savage calling for more medical preparedness
      in the US. The new balloting laws made by Cuomo made it so that candidates had to go out and get signatures
      in the midst of this outbreak. Some of his GOP contenders did that, endangering the public, but Hernandes – the ONLY
      GOP candidate in NY14 – AOC’s district – did not endanger people. He will run as a write in.
      And next week we may have a surprise event for everyone. I will only post about it nearer the time.
      It will involve China.
      Which is where this virus came from.

  • Holy cow.

    The lockdown might be making things worse…

    This is backed up by REAL data.

    1) The ‘hysteria’ is causing many people who don’t have the virus (who have minor cold/flu symptoms) to visit the hospital out of extreme fear —– which causes them to become infected after being exposed to other infected patients or staff, even though they would never have visited the hospital except for the media hysteria causing them to ‘overreact’.

    In fact, people are now being asked to stop showing up at hospitals with ‘minor symptoms’ —– to prevent them from getting infected, LOL.

    The media is causing this extra spread of the virus, LOL.

    2) The lockdown is causing ‘asymptomatic’ patients (infected people with no symptoms) to stay home all day and huddle around family members, causing the family to all get infected, LOL. This guarantees that everybody at home will become infected without even realizing that one of them was the original carrier.

  • Holy cow.

    The CDC ‘rules’ require deaths to be reported as “COVID deaths” even when there aren’t any tests to prove it (doctors are allowed to ‘assume’ it, according to CDC rules).

    Also, any deaths resulting from serious heart or lung diseases (like COPD) are required to be listed as “COVID deaths” if the patient contracted the virus at the hospital and was already dying of the other serious diseases. LOL.

    The reported ‘death rates’ are setup to be inflated to the maximum degree possible without an autopsy or testing to confirm anything. LOL.

    Read the data here:

    NYC emergency room visits peaked on March 25th — but since then, they are down 55% and are now at normal levels.

    NYC emergency room visits are now equivalent to where they where in January, LOL, according to the official graphs.

    Look at the official charts to verify this fact. 🙂

    Don’t pay attention to the idiots (like Flaccid Paul and AnonyFaker) who tell you to ignore the REAL DATA and instead listen to whatever gibberish they can copy & paste from Huffington Post, lol.

    I can’t speak for everybody else here, but for me, I’d much rather rely on REAL ‘official data’ (rather than liberal rubbish that tells us to ignore the REAL DATA). 🙂

    What about DEATH RATES?

    https://twitter.com/AlexBerenson/status/1246158004292128768

    Death rates are still elevated because that’s a ‘lagging’ indicator which will always lag behind hospital visits, but emergency room visits are clearly going way down in NYC —– and it’s doubtful that the economy will stay shut down beyond mid May at this rate.

    Oh… On a different note…

    A new study shows that higher temps do bring down the rate of infection of COVID, just like the flu. This is not a surprise since this is how most viruses operate.

    https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-cases-flu-like-drop-linked-with-high-heat-humidity-2020-3
    https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3551767

    So yes, Trump was being pragmatic when he predicted that summer would see the virus decline due to hotter temps. Only an idiot would assume otherwise.

    The combination of these 2 facts (lower hospital rates plus hotter temps coming) is gonna make the scare-mongers blow a gasket, lol.

    Have a nice day. 🙂

  • There will be no more posts from me in the foreseeable, future as I’ve volunteered to do a 4.5 hour shift at the local General Hospital every day, whilst also working on my increased case load of Psychiatric outpatients. I’ll be staying there for the time being.

    This makes sense, as my wife, who is an Anaesthetist, has been staying there for over a week, and I’m probably immune, after already contracting and recovering from the virus.

    My last parting is advice, is that you ignore the obviously delusional posters who suggest that this pandemic is a hoax or a scam, stay home, don’t go out only if you really must and practice strict social-distancing when you do.

    This is not a drill.

    Good luck

  • ‘I don’t understand why that’s not happening’: Every US state should be on coronavirus lockdown, says Anthony Fauci
    More than 30 states have issued stay-at-home orders, and just five states have not mandated both ‘shelter in place’ measures and business closures

    Experts said that regardless of whether states have comprehensive and consistent quarantine measures, the damage is likely done. The social distancing measures should have been in place weeks ago for the US to begin seeing a “flatten the curve” effect, they say.
    Several state officials say they delayed or refused to tell their residents to stay home to keep their fragile economies moving.”

    “Paul

    What you will see in the US over the next 14 days is state after state going into lockdown.

    “Reopening the economy” is what you won’t see,” because these states going into lockdown and the Coronavirus spreading like wildfire throughout the US will make it impossible.

    Everything that could have been done to prevent this happening hasn’t been done.

    And now, it’s too late.”

    States now in full or partial Lockdown:

    This list is obviously incomplete, as I don’t have time to compile a complete one.

    • It’s not just your list that is incomplete, it’s your thoughts as well.

      ““Reopening the economy” is what you won’t see,” because these states going into lockdown and the Coronavirus spreading like wildfire throughout the US will make it impossible.” What does this mean? The economy will NEVER be reopened?

      “Everything that could have been done to prevent this happening hasn’t been done.” What do you mean by “everything?” What “this” are you talking about?

      “And now, it’s too late.” Too late for what? Are we all going to die from either the Wuhan Chinese coronavirus or starve to death?

      • What I said at the time meant that you wouldn’t see the economy reopen by, or shortly after Easter, as your government was telling you at the time.

        By “too late,” I meant too late to introduce social distancing and lockdowns, to prevent the rapid and accelerating spread which is now sadly evident.

        No, you are not all going to die from Covid-19, but substantial numbers will, and feeding people is going to become a major problem in the coming months.

        • My government never told me that. My government said it was a goal, but it depended on how the conditions progressed. You and your fellow Libtards hate Trump’s guts, so you place the worst spin you can think of and accuse him of making declarative statements. You are a NOTHING. LOL

          What is the definition of “rapid and accelerating spread?” Are you referring to Trump prohibiting flights from China in late January when he was called racist by the Libtards? LOL

          What is a “substantial number” of people dying? What is your basis for problems feeding people? Just another “fact” that you claim is true, with ZERO basis? LOL

  • Why aren’t you posting comments that may be controversial that assert that this Corona Virus nonsense is all a scam, huh? You have no problems posting controversial articles about 5G being its cause or approving comments with excessive vulgarity that are racist, misogynistic, and anti-liberal diatribes. What happened to the claim that this site upholds the right to free speech? Or is that just BS with undisclosed content exceptions?

  • Too much anonyfaker and his basement butt buddy Paul around here. They have basically turned this site into their own propaganda board. What these two imbecilic stooges fail to remember is that it is a great big internet out there and most can see things for themselves, rather than be spoon-fed pablum that fuels these two fools’ empty lives.

      • Paul, you and AnonyMaker are arguing with ret*rded morons.

        I responded to your persecution and tenacity.

        Bing Bongs like Scott Johnson do not underestimate facts.

        They’re all Scott stayed with the world’s biggest scam, Amway for eight years and it never occurred to him that he was getting scammed.

        Good luck educating any of them.

    • Interesting that you ignore Shadow and Bangkok, the two most frenetic and off-topic posters of what do often turn out to be provably false fake news propaganda pieces – those who most are trying to turn this into a board about things other than NXIVM, including off-topic spamming of comments on the pieces that are specific to NXIVM, like injecting politics into a discussion about Kreuk and GBD.

      Yours is the sort of observer bias typically found in culty thinking, and actual cults.

      “Observer bias (also called experimenter bias or research bias) is the tendency to see what we expect to see, or what we want to see. ”

    • Nevada Governor Sisolak Found Hoarding Coronavirus Treatment Drug

      Just about a week after the Trump-hating Democrat Governor of Nevada limited the ability for physicians to prescribe Hydroxychloroquine to treat Coronavirus, news broke that Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak’s own Department of Corrections has been hoarding the drug for prisoners.

      https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/04/nevada-governor-sisolak-found-hoarding-coronavirus-treatment-drug/

      Hoarding for the prisoners, huh? Kinda like how the media has been trotting Cuomo out to rail on and on about patients about to die because President Trump has yet to send all of the 30,000 ventilators he requested? Come to find out, he never mentioned the thousands of ventilators he had hiding in a warehouse.

      And the mayor of Puerto Rico blaming Trump for people dying due to a lack of critical aid being delivered? Then later finding entire shipments of pallets loaded down with the disaster relief, hidden in warehouses and wasting away on the tarmacs while the people were dying.

      It’s painfully obvious, critical life-saving needs are being kept from those suffering to drive up the body count for the expressed purpose of blaming it on President Trump.

      Crimes against humanity still carry the death penalty.

    • Given the reality-check that the quinine compounds, including in cocktails with other drugs, have been in trials and experimental use on patients for weeks and months now, it’s clear that while they may be somewhat effective they are neither a cure or a preventive – if they were, the crisis would be ending with people waltzing out of hospitals.

      What we’re seeing is similar to what is best known from the HIV/AIDS epidemic, where many things have been tried of time – often to promises and hype that failed to pan out – and some compunds an combinations have indeed turned out to be helpful, though none a miracle.

      And the experts are right to be cautious; theres a long history of drugs and treatments, from thadilomide to the swine flu vaccine, turning out to have much worse side effects than initially understood.

      • Anonymaker
        UBC researchers are working on a drug which shows promise in fighting covid-19.

        https://globalnews.ca/news/6772049/coronavirus-trial-drug-ubc-covid-19/

        Canada, specifly Vancouver, put strict measures in place about 2 weeks ago to flatten the curve, and so far it’s working. Vancouver was the epicenter for the virus in Canada, but overall Canada has only had about 160 deaths, so far. Numbers will rise, but it’s under control here due to taking quicker action than the US.

        #PlankTheCurve

        • The USA has ten times the population of Canada, LOL, that’s why you have so many fewer deaths.

          Dummy.

          On a per capita basis the USA still has higher deaths than Canada, however, the USA also has 50x more foreign visitors coming into every airport compared to Canada, which made the initial infection rate that much worse in the USA.

          Canada is mostly a frozen wasteland/shithole that doesn’t attract the same numbers of foreign visitors and workers as the USA. Thus, comparing Canada to USA is like comparing apples and oranges. We also have millions of illegals. Canada doesn’t.

          Even your own Prime Minister’s wife got the virus, LOL, so I seriously doubt that Canada did anything special to fight the virus early, LOL. If that were true, your PM’s wife wouldn’t be infected.

          Have a nice day. 🙂

          • Sophie got the virus while traveling in the UK. She remained isolated and Prime Minister Trudeau worked from home to make sure they didn’t spread the virus.

            If you do the math Bangie, you’ll see that the percentages are considerably lower for Canada than for the US. And, yes, I realize that the numbers will obviously be lower due to the lower population.

            It’s hardly a frozen wasteland here in Vancouver….the sun is shining, the cherry blossom trees are beautiful, the daffodils and tulips are blooming, and orcas are swimming in the harbour.

      • AnonyMaker,

        Your last paragraph totally deflated my “delusional hope balloon”.

        Hopefully, the testing will get widespread and easy enough that we will be able to manage this crisis.

        That’s my only realistic hope.

        A vaccine or better medical treatments at this stage of the game are pipe-dreams.

  • This is how you do it:

    “Finance minister Rishi Sunak told reporters that the government will cover 80% of worker salaries for at least the next three months up to a maximum of £2,500 ($2,900) a month.

    Sunak said the measures would apply to all companies, large or small. The measure was part of a bigger rescue package for British businesses, including tax relief totaling £30 billion and interest-free loans for up to 12 months.”

    https://edition.cnn.com/2020/03/20/business/coronavirus-uk-pubs-wages/index.html

      • This is all completely verifiable on any news outlet you care to use. I just used CNN as it was the first one that came up. The measures were announced live on BBC television by the UK Finance Minister and are now in operation.

        If Fox or ABC came up first, I would have used those.

        Why is it that you find easily verifiable facts so difficult to cope with?

  • Mr. O’Hara,

    I greatly appreciate all of your articles!!!
    Thank you for taking the time to write them!!!

    *********
    REGARDING
    “What changes that we’ve made because of the coronavirus crisis do you think will become SEMI-permanent?” Or your predictions regarding the future…

    Answer:

    1. No more hand shaking.

    2. Alas no more in person one-night-stands for younger folks. Hookups will occur via video conferencing.

    3. The Prepper culture will go mainstream for the next 10 plus years.

    4. At some point Scott Johnson will somehow equate the Coronavirus-Pandemic to Amway or MLMs in general.

    5. Bangkok will try his damndest to bait you into responding to him. If you don’t respond Joe….It will drive Bangkok insane.

    • Wrong, lol.

      I never expect a reply when I humiliate somebody by proving them wrong about something. 🙂

      Even when I ask for a reply, as I often do with Frank or Joe, I do not *really* seek a reply —- I merely do that to prove a point (to prove that they have no logical response to rebut my allegations).

      Whether they respond or not is irrelevant since my facts stand on their own merit and can’t be logically rebutted, though it’s sometimes funny to watch idiots (like AnonyFaker) attempt to rebut my facts with SUPER LONG, non-responsive answers, lol.

      My comments are meant for OTHER READERS to absorb. They are not meant for the ‘intended targets’ to reply to.

      If they don’t respond then I win. If they do respond (with non-responsive answers) then I also win.

      It’s heads I win, tails they lose. 🙂

      I thought you understood me better than that by now, Niceguy.

      As always, please give my best to your fat Sicilian whore.

      Have a nice day. 🙂

      • This reminds me of you not responding to my reminders that you DEMANDED I answer 11+ questions, but you’re too scared to come on my show so I can answer them. I don’t expect you to answer, I just want everyone else to know what an abject pu$$y you are. LOL

        • LOL.

          Hey Scooter. Long time no talk.

          1) To qualify as a radio ‘show’ means that you’d need to have a real ‘audience’ — which we both know is non-existent, other than a few hillbillies and family members.

          Thus, if I went on your ‘show’ (LOL) it would really just be a private phone conversation between you and I, with a few of your family members listening in.

          2) You’ve already admitted that your co-host is a woman who broadcasts the radio show from her parent’s house, LOL, which she also lives in still. She also believes that she’s the reincarnation of Napoleon’s girlfriend or wife.

          There’s no studio. There’s no credible host. It’s just you and a 35 year old woman who still lives in mommy and daddy’s home still.

          3) If you really had the BALLS you claim to have, you’d have simply answered the 11 questions instead of insisting on ‘conditions’ for them to be answered.

          If you need to insist on ‘conditions’ being fulfilled just to answer a few questions, it means you’re too much of a pussy to answer those questions —– and you’re simply looking for an escape route to save face. LOL.

          Just basic psychology, Scottie.

          Have a nice day. 🙂

          • We’ve never talked, you’re too much of a pu$$y. LOL

            1. You have no idea how many people listen to the show, whether live or the recording. LOL

            2. My cohost has more man in his little finger than you have in your entire body. You are merely digging yourself deeper. LOL

            3. I don’t answer on the website because it’s not worth the time and effort, plus I would expose you as the total idiot you are better on the show. LOL

            Just basic facts that prove that you’re a stupid, cowardly pu$$y, Bangkok. LOL

          • To Bangkok & TexTex,

            Bangkok took TexTex to town!!!!

            It’s official: TexTex is Bangkok’s little b*tch.

            TexTex is so desperate for a friend he harasses an underage kid to contact him by telephone…

            Is TexTex a member of NAMBLA?

            Hey TexTex, Bangkok has better things to do than speak to you…Like just about anything.

            Scott, who uses a telephone these days? It’s the 21st century. WTF?

            Weird when the biggest troll on this site goes head to head with the biggest knob. Heels never turn face on FR. (although Flowers is giving it a solid effort)

      • Bangkok,

        We have reached a new point in our relationship. This is the first time you have ever responded to one of my posts regarding yourself directly.

        Previously, you only had responded when I tricked you with an alias into playing the F-marry-kill game.

        The fact that you are now responding proves my hypothesis correct: you are indeed bothered by the idea of Joe O’Hara and others not responding to you.

        I understand you better than you understand yourself, my son.

        Game match set……You lose. No coin toss necessary.
        BTW: The coin toss is a dumb analogy. A coin toss is a zero-sum game. Stick to tossing off.
        ******

        I would like to do 2 things:
        1. Make a porn movie with your mom.
        2. Make you watch it.

        I am sensing your parents are divorced. Do you ever have the opportunity to meet your mom’s beaus? Are they nice? Does mom ever give you money to go to the movies, while she and one her beaus stay home? I’m just curious.

        Have a great day, you little dipsh*t and try not to get coughed on. I want you and your mom to stick around[be healthy] so I can stick “it” to your mom.

        I bid you Buenas Tardes 😉

  • We are actually managing to isolate here in the UK and it IS making a difference. Please take care FR readers, ignore all craving for the one marshmallow, wait a few weeks and you’ll live to eat as many as you want. All the very best to you.

  • “I will not respond to the expected imbecilic comments by Bangkok or whatever alias he’s using these days because I consider him to be a true danger – who is really not all that different than Keith Raniere. So, bang away, “kok” – and rest assured that Karma has a way of extracting justice from scum like you.”

    Isn’t Bangkook Omar Rosales? If you remember, the comments here really took a dive with Omar’s arrival and his idiotic, juvenile, name calling posts first under FormerNexian. then NoisyMouse and all of his stupid racist anonymous spanky brown beetle back and forth comments with the equally mentally ill Sultan and all of Sultan’s alias and poor Scooty.

    Frank probably won’t post this since he often censors comments criticizing the sad sack. You have to sort of feel sorry for the guy though. He’s obviously not well. He was arrested, publicly humiliated, got his license suspended in not one but two states, and has been exposed as a liar. Maybe Frank is actually afraid of Omar and that’s why he posts Omar’s ramblings no matter what combination of words he strings together in place of his real name. Although considering the first thing that pops up when you Google Omar Rosales is the article about his arrest, I can see why he’d be too ashamed to use his real name anymore.

    • You’re a real genius, dude. lol.

      Omar Rosales is from TEXAS, you dumb fuck, and it’s HOT AND HUMID AS FUCK in Texas —– which means I’d never step foot inside that SHITTY state ever again.

      When I visited Houston once, I couldn’t tolerate the massive humidity stepping just 10 feet out of my hotel lobby. It hit me like a wall of bricks. lol. After that day, no more Texas for for me.

      Now kindly eat a bowl of HOT DICKS.

      Arizona is not as bad as Texas, I’m told (it’s massively hot, but it’s a dry heat).

      But I’d still never step foot inside a SHITTY state like Arizona with its 120 degree summer days. Too fucken hot and unpleasant. That’s why I always laugh when idiots post that I’m a former US attorney from Arizona. It’s kinda like watching children play ‘make believe’ games, except these are adults who really believe this nonsense.

      Have a nice day. 🙂

      • LMAO

        Christ, Bangkok you have exceeded my wildest expectations of your ability to rip and sh*t on people. Well done!!!!

    • I don’t recall Rosales responding to any of my comments. I am the one who first exposed Rosales for the dirtbag that he is, and Frank even posted some of those comments.

  • Note to Missouri Joe and AnonyFaker…

    It’s fun watching you two old men pretend as though the apocalypse is happening.

    While I won’t ask you to look at factual data showing that every ‘prediction’ for hospitalization rates has been WRONG, lol, I will point out that you’re not helping anybody by attempting to raise their stress levels.

    For the sheeple who are dumb enough to believe your rantings and who subsequently become majorly stressed out and scared shitless —– their immune systems won’t function 100% when their stressed out and paranoid.

    You’re only hurting the people you claim to wanna help. LOL.

    https://www.simplypsychology.org/stress-immune.html

    Relaxing is the best way to make sure your immune system is 100% at all times. Rest and relaxation is better than being stressed out.

    Getting all stressed just won’t help anybody. Duh. 🙂

    Even if the end of the world were coming, you still wouldn’t be helping anybody by stressing them out.

    But thankfully, the death rate for this virus is about 0.6% so far and is likely to drop when the serology testing proves that many more people were infected than we knew about.

    Chill peeps!

    Be happy.

    FYI: I’m guessing that Flowers might be infected, which is probably why she’s so silent these days. She probably got infected from her college aged daughter who came home from spring break.

    Have a nice day. 🙂

    • We are not infected, Bangkok, and I did post several recent comments because Ken needed to be informed on important topics, such as the risk factors involved in urban wildlife interaction 😂

      Though I don’t want to joke too much as NYC really is going thru a crisis, and the death toll is going to keep rising for the next several days. I just posted an article on this thread about a new COVID-19 drug that UBC researchers are working on. I hope they are able to send some to NYC asap.

      BTW, Bangkok, how did you know my daughter was home from school? Are you keeping up on Canadian news and, therefore, realized that Universities here are only online now until this pandemic ends?

  • For a post that educates readers about reality, aspects of which most of us are unaware.

  • Some might be surprised, but I knew it was coming in February.

    Partly because of my work, and partly because of the fact that I contracted and recovered from the Coronavirus in January.

    It was obvious that it was going to hit very very hard, and the worst is yet to come.

    Hunger is what nobody wants to talk about yet, but it’s coming.

    I’ve been right about everything else I’ve about the Pandemic, and I’m right about this.

    • “Hunger is what nobody wants to talk about yet, but it’s coming.”

      This is almost exactly what I said today. I truly don’t think people are grasping the scale of what is unfolding.

      For me, the greatest calamity that can befall one in this life is UNEMPLOYMENT.

      Sickness and death — these are perfectly natural events. We have all kinds of rituals and traditions to deal with them. If you’re ill, you get help and sympathy.

      But unemployment — having no way to support yourself, no way to “make a living” — is a true and totally surreal nightmare that completely negates everything that you are as a human being. It’s a completely unnatural state of existence, a kind of living death. You have to hide your desperation, while feeling guilty if you ever manage to look relaxed.

      I feel for people who are ill and dying, and their families, believe me. But right now, I just can’t help thinking about the millions of souls who have suddenly lost their jobs.

      My neighbour here runs an extremely successful travel agency. She’s had to close down, give her staff a half salary for a couple of months, and then everyone’s on their own. She has a stock portfolio, she’s too scared even to look at it. Just when you need it, your money has all evaporated.

      A few short days ago, she had a secure, even prosperous existence. Her staff have all been with her for years, she’s a wonderful boss, zero turnover. All of their futures are now completely uncertain.

      I know a pilot who’s just been retrenched, he was flying the Rolling Stones a few weeks back, now he has absolutely no prospects for work.

      A nightclub owner who’s had to close his doors, the trendy theme nights cancelled. Musicians who have lost all their gigs.

      I’ve gone through many savage bouts of unemployment, for all kinds of reasons. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure how I’ve survived.

      But one thing I learned: if you set foot outside your door, money just flies out of your pocket. It’s best to stay home, lock yourself down, and sit by the landline if you’re waiting for news on a job.

      So how do you keep yourself occupied? This is a question vexing millions of people right now. For me, the answer was cooking. If you’re unemployed, you have TIME on your hands, the most valuable commodity of all, which even the richest people struggle to obtain.

      Back in 1995, I found myself penniless and with one onion in the kitchen. So I spent most of the day making soup. I boiled the onion skin and off-cuts for a stock, and then chopped half the onion very finely, the other half into thin slices, for some texture density. And very carefully constructed and tended the dish. It was fabulous. And that’s when I thought of a cookbook for the unemployed, starring items like Popcorn Surprise! and One-Onion Soup.

      So for anyone in this hideous situation, I can only say — look after yourself, both physically and mentally, by taking the heat and staying in the kitchen. You can spend more time and devotion on a simple dish than the fanciest restaurant could ever afford, and make it with far more love than any sweating galley-hand could ever manage.

      The one thing that kept worrying me was — there are all these thin, beautiful, impossibly energetic people who say you should eat everything raw. But when you’re unemployed, you need comfort food. And you need accessible calories, which is what cooking provides. You aspire to be thin, NOT.

      So I was really happy to find the following passage from a famous Sufi cook, a Turkish esoteric teacher who featured as “Hamid” in the books of the English mystic Reshad Feild. His real name was Bulent Rauf. He says:

      “Note — that there is no expression of divine manifestation devoid of beauty. Beauty of taste is an absolutely necessary ingredient of the essential (in all senses) composition. Had it been in the Divine order of things that mankind should graze, there would have been no need for cooking at all, but such not being the case, it is erroneous to think that all value in vegetables is only in a raw or under-cooked ingestion.”

      He adds that in the sect of Rumi, the actual Whirling Dervishes, the esoteric education of the novice is known as “cooking”:

      https://www.chisholme.org/resources/overview/bulent-rauf/notice-to-cooks-by-bulent-rauf.html

      I set up a platform for the cookbook a couple of years ago, I’m going to activate it soon, the time has come. When it gets going, I’ll promote it shamelessly right here, never fear.

      In the meantime: just think about the multiple shocks the global economy is experiencing, how these shocks are going to compound, how all those just-in-time supply chains have been shattered. The situation is going to get a lot worse before it gets any better, so seriously go and stock up as best you can.

      I can really recommend getting a pressure cooker, I’ve used mine thousands of times over the last few years. I love cooking by ear, rather than by eye, you only pay attention when it all goes quiet — either the heat’s too low, or else the vent has got clogged and is threatening to blow. Pressure cookers save fuel, they save time, and there’s no better way to cook beans. As this situation develops, you are going to learn why beans and lentils feature in so many peasant diets. And potatoes, great in the pressure cooker.

      Good luck everyone. Don’t panic.

  • Thanks for this excellent overview, Joe. I don’t think there’s anything significant I could add to it, except to note that I think that you’re right that at this point, having missed opportunities to stem the spread of the virus and now with an overwhelmed medical system about to start experiencing critical shortages of equipment, 140,000–240,000 fatalities is a best-case scenario, though I also think there is a fair chance that Americans will come together and keep the toll contained in that range.

    On the point of Porter, if I recall correctly, doctors who lose their license in one state can sometimes manage to get a license in another. Porter might even have originally been licensed in Iowa and thus perhaps have something like an inactive license there, but regardless, given the current crisis, he might well be able to get re-licensed in that state, one way or another. There may also be some chance that Roberts will also now get some sort of pass given the critical shortage of medical personnel; if I were on a medical board I might vote to let her keep her license so long as she did a year’s worth of emergency room and critical care work – and assuming she survived that.

    p.s. It would be nice if Frank tried just modding out the trolls in comments on this serious topic – not just the 1-4 line drive-by trolls, but those who do little more than paste video and Twitter links, and eventhe longer pieces whose twisted and pointless purpose seems really just to get a rise out of people.

    • This is a chance for both doctors to honour their respective oaths, under close scrutiny of course, but they could begin to rehabilitate themselves by rolling their sleeves up and getting stuck in on the covid isolation wards. Isn’t Dr. Roberts the fittest woman in christendom? And Dr. Porter at least, should relish the genuine horror.

    • Everybody is an expert regarding the number of deaths. LOL I wouldn’t count on Porter being able to get a license in Iowa, it didn’t work for Rosales, his reputation followed him. With the publicity Porter has received the same should occur. I would put both of them on an assembly line making ventilators.

      P.S., YOU are one of those trolls. LOL

  • Nonsense. It’s just a giant cover for the manipulated, overvalued economy that had to come down sooner or later and a long term distraction with inflated infection and death statistics for its after effects and the plan that needs to be implemented after the fact. No better way to diminish people’s critical thinking skills by inducing fear in them. No better way to stop global protests against the global elite. No better way to implement martial law without a police state, that is until people start to get restless.

    It’s just another stepping stone by the global elite who control the small amount of corporations that own all of the mass media (via subsidiaries also) to implement their New World Order plan by buying the entire world with the monopoly money they print.

    “The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.” – Malcom X.

    Manufactured Pandemic: Testing People for Any Strain of a Coronavirus, Not Specifically for COVID-19

    ***

    I work in the healthcare field. Here’s the problem, we are testing people for any strain of a Coronavirus. Not specifically for COVID-19. There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus. There are no reliable agencies or media outlets for reporting numbers of actual COVID-19 virus cases. This needs to be addressed first and foremost. Every action and reaction to COVID-19 is based on totally flawed data and we simply can not make accurate assessments.

    This is why you’re hearing that most people with COVID-19 are showing nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. That’s because most Coronavirus strains are nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. The few actual novel Coronavirus cases do have some worse respiratory responses, but still have a very promising recovery rate, especially for those without prior issues.

    The ‘gold standard’ in testing for COVID-19 is laboratory isolated/purified coronavirus particles free from any contaminants and particles that look like viruses but are not, that have been proven to be the cause of the syndrome known as COVID-19 and obtained by using proper viral isolation methods and controls (not the PCR that is currently being used or Serology /antibody tests which do not detect virus as such). PCR basically takes a sample of your cells and amplifies any DNA to look for ‘viral sequences’, i.e. bits of non-human DNA that seem to match parts of a known viral genome.

    The problem is the test is known not to work.

    It uses ‘amplification’ which means taking a very very tiny amount of DNA and growing it exponentially until it can be analyzed. Obviously any minute contaminations in the sample will also be amplified leading to potentially gross errors of discovery.

    Additionally, it’s only looking for partial viral sequences, not whole genomes, so identifying a single pathogen is next to impossible even if you ignore the other issues.

    The New Coronavirus Outbreak, COVID-19, Sounds Menacing and Is
    The Mickey Mouse test kits being sent out to hospitals, at best, tell analysts you have some viral DNA in your cells. Which most of us do, most of the time. It may tell you the viral sequence is related to a specific type of virus – say the huge family of coronavirus. But that’s all. The idea these kits can isolate a specific virus like COVID-19 is nonsense.

    And that’s not even getting into the other issue – viral load.

    If you remember the PCR works by amplifying minute amounts of DNA. It therefore is useless at telling you how much virus you may have. And that’s the only question that really matters when it comes to diagnosing illness. Everyone will have a few virus kicking round in their system at any time, and most will not cause illness because their quantities are too small. For a virus to sicken you you need a lot of it, a massive amount of it. But PCR does not test viral load and therefore can’t determine if it is present in sufficient quantities to sicken you.

    If you feel sick and get a PCR test any random virus DNA might be identified even if they aren’t at all involved in your sickness which leads to false diagnosis.

    And coronavirus are incredibly common. A large percentage of the world human population will have covi DNA in them in small quantities even if they are perfectly well or sick with some other pathogen.

    Do you see where this is going yet? If you want to create a totally false panic about a totally false pandemic – pick a coronavirus.

    They are incredibly common and there’s tons of them. A very high percentage of people who have become sick by other means (flu, bacterial pneumonia, anything) will have a positive

    PCR test for covi even if you’re doing them properly and ruling out contamination, simply because covis are so common.

    There are hundreds of thousands of flu and pneumonia victims in hospitals throughout the world at any one time.

    All you need to do is select the sickest of these in a single location – say Wuhan – administer PCR tests to them and claim anyone showing viral sequences similar to a coronavirus (which will inevitably be quite a few) is suffering from a ‘new’ disease.

    Since you already selected the sickest flu cases a fairly high proportion of your sample will go on to die.

    You can then say this ‘new’ virus has a CFR higher than the flu and use this to infuse more concern and do more tests which will of course produce more ‘cases’, which expands the testing, which produces yet more ‘cases’ and so on and so on.

    Before long you have your ‘pandemic’, and all you have done is use a simple test kit trick to convert the worst flu and pneumonia cases into something new that doesn’t actually exist.

    Now just run the same scam in other countries. Making sure to keep the fear message running high so that people will feel panicky and less able to think critically.

    Your only problem is going to be that – due to the fact there is no actual new deadly pathogen but just regular sick people, you are mislabeling your case numbers, and especially your deaths, are going to be way too low for a real new deadly virus pandemic.

    But you can stop people pointing this out in several ways.

    1. You can claim this is just the beginning and more deaths are imminent. Use this as an excuse to quarantine everyone and then claim the quarantine prevented the expected millions of dead.

    2. You can tell people that ‘minimizing’ the dangers is irresponsible and bully them into not talking about numbers.

    3. You can talk crap about made up numbers hoping to blind people with pseudoscience.

    4. You can start testing well people (who, of course, will also likely have shreds of coronavirus DNA in them) and thus inflate your ‘case figures’ with ‘asymptomatic carriers’ (you will of course have to spin that to sound deadly even though any virologist knows the more symptom-less cases you have the less deadly is your pathogen.

    Take these 4 simple steps and you can have your own entirely manufactured pandemic up and running in weeks.

    They can not “confirm” something for which there is no accurate test.
