Feb 18, 2020; 2019 nCoV Update, Code Yellow, Does anybody know anything ?

WHO director ShitHead. Do you think that the WHOs response has any corelation with the money given to them by the Chinese Gov`t?

But the complacent are not just falling for false claims being passed off as “facts” rather than what they really are–magical thinking–they’re making a much larger error known as Survivorship Bias.” 

~ Charles Hugh Smith

I’ve spent the past few days internalizing the CoronaVirus pandemic, recognising that I was deviating from the intent of this blog, that being to review and discuss “Details of the Emerging Mega Trends Affecting Civilization… and our Inept Response.”

This 2019 nCoV pandemic pretty much encapsulates “our inept response”. I’ve been grappling with the response part. I don’t see the need to micro-analyze each and every article and thought fart from every pundit, news organization and government speaking head. (and recognize I was doing just that).

Well in my defense, I’ll just summarize with, “Yes my hair burst into flames and I saw this as a huge event (disaster). I needed to warn everybody I cared about and the few who would stray across this, my personal scream chamber.”

I’ve talked to a number of people about this (a quick apology to all checkout cashiers, gas station attendants and misc people accosted on the street) and the result is pretty much the same as if I had said ‘What are your thoughts about this corona virus, climate emergency, biosphere collapse, peak oil, blah blah?”

Its more than the cud chewing look of a vapid barn animal, its complete and total “other interpretation”, based upon whatever ideology they believe in: capitalism is good, political affiliation, Chinese are bad, politicians aren’t to be trusted, more people die every year from the flu, I’ve got my shit wired, etc.

So how the hell did we create a population this disconnected from reality? Most importantly why do I, snow bank straddler extraordinaire, see it so clearly? Trust me I ain’t that extraordinaire.

I think its because American culture/poison has infiltrated the world. That culture is being used as defense by other powers themselves. Mimic what you can’t defeat. All industrialized countries do it, just not so flagrantly. (but would if they could). It’s how you keep up or even get ahead.

That culture is specifically about profit at all costs. Since WW2 the US has had free hand to; cajole, bully, intimidate, lie, invade, assassinate leaders, destroy countries and generally take what they want from anywhere in the world they wish, under the guise of “protecting American interest”. And all this under the umbrella of the worlds largest PR campaign and behind the scenes arm twisting. So much so that their own people haven’t a clue about it.

Its been going on through enough generations that its become normalized for the majority of people worldwide.

That US culture has: perpetuated climate denial, continued baseless wars throughout the world, severely damaged the planet we live on, created a disparity of wealth unprecedented, destroyed our healthy food making ability, generally created a world of hate, separation and disconnect.

All to make more money.


COVID-19 Reality


The PR (deceit, lies, strategic bullying, outright fear mongering campaign) to end the world.

Here is a wide ranging overview of the bullshit. Basically every institution that we were supposed to have faith in, that is sposed to have our interests at heart, has its own agenda, and mostly its not you or I. Here are some posts I bookmarked recently. Only thing in common, they all lie.

Citizens United

This was a watershed moment in US politics. The game got ugly here. “On Jan. 21, 2010, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the longstanding prohibition on independent expenditures by corporations violated the First Amendment. With its decision, the court allowed corporations, including nonprofits, and labor unions to spend unlimited sums to support or oppose political candidates. The majority made the case that political spending from independent actors, even from powerful corporations, was not a corrupting influence on those in office.

How can any reasonable person think that allowing psychopathic megalomaniacs to use their money to influence politics will end well? Do you honestly think that a fella with a few billion understands/cares about you or me? click here for a list of the highest political US donors. How is it possible a casino magnate (Sheldon Adelson) can donate $137.7 million??? Do you think he had any influence on the US/Israel debacle? That’s likely more than the entire Palestinians GDP.

Oh yeah, its going OK if you’re one of them (.01%). Us poor bunyaks, we are left with choices that amount to sewage sludge; choose between the grey steamy pile or the brown steamy pile. All parties cater to those that pay.

Revolving Door of Politics

This little sleight of hand allows a government official leaving office to go work for the company whose agenda he/she pushed. Dig into Monsanto for more on this. In Canada it allows the likes of Stevo Harper and Brian (take some cash) Mulroney to sit on Boards and continue their influence. In the US it allows senior Monsanto or Goldman Sachs officials to hold public office, change the rules in their companies favour and go back to those same companies.

Eazy Peazy

..and Now China is doing it.

“If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.” 

~ John F. Kennedy

So here we sit. Trying to glean something from the barrage of factoids dumped on us regarding 2019 nCoV. All while them that’s in power manipulate the narrative to serve their purpose, which, sadly is not our purpose.

When what we should be doing is lifting our heads a little higher and staring the problem right in the face.

Just simply follow the dollar signs and you can see why we will never solve any Giant Turdball until we address the Cause; Its Corporate Corruption plain and simple.

And the only way to get rid of it to destroy it. And that’s hard.

“Responsibility I believe accrues through privilege. People like you and me have an unbelievable amount of privilege and therefore we have a huge amount of responsibility. We live in free societies where we are not afraid of the police; we have extraordinary wealth available to us by global standards. If you have those things, then you have the kind of responsibility that a person does not have if he or she is slaving seventy hours a week to put food on the table; a responsibility at the very least to inform yourself about power. Beyond that, it is a question of whether you believe in moral certainties or not.”

Feb 14, 2020; 2019 nCoV Update, Code Yellow, with a change in tactics: Glimmers of Truth from CDC and WTO

“We don’t know a lot about this virus,” he said. “This virus is probably with us beyond this season, beyond this year, and I think eventually the virus will find a foothold and we will get community-based transmission.”” 

CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield

Is The Coronavirus Now Unstoppable? New Data Suggests So.
Its simply numbers people.
Simple numbers.

Reality


What the “Experts” say

First they denied any issue. They kept planes coming. No Worries!

Then they did minor league inspection with a thermometer, all whilst reports came back of asymptomatic spreading of disease. No Worries!

Now we find out 2/3 of the population is at risk and it can’t be contained. No Worries!

Whats the plan?????????? No Worries! We’ve got your back!

When our governments control the narrative, for their own financial self interest (think corporate lobbyists here) over that of the health of their people………

They’ve been doing this for all the long term Giant Turdballs; Climate Chaos, Biosphere collapse, Peak Oil, et. al.

Now using the same playbook they have attempted to pull the same wool over our eyes. Because someone deemed us unable to handle the news? We might panic? Might hurt the financial markets? They now get to reap what they have sown. A pox on their house doesn’t seem fitting.

The worlds leaders have proven themselves untrustworthy and have laid a bed of sorrow for us to all lie down in.

My response, ” Fuck you and the fuckers you hang with! I am supposed to let you guide me??? I cannot say this loud enough, FUCK YOU!

How To

Keystone Cops in Action

Remember that these are the people that we hope can lead us through the dark times. I swear they make it up as they go along. This from the CDC ($11 Billion /yr budget, Best country in the world, Blessed by God, Exceptional.) …..and monkeys fly out of my butt!

Ya’ll ain’t that exceptional. Except how to make money. (at the expense of the entire planet). Only now its looking like it will bite you in the ass.

I slag the Excited States; oh Canada, and Europe is no different. It’s just they don’t preen as much.

Wrap it up….please

I’m pretty tired of trying to talk to people and posting and getting the blase’ look of a cow chewing cud. This has been going on since I first posted about nCoV, Jan 27. A lack of historical perspective, lack of understanding of our uniquely delicate position as an over populating, over consuming mammal on a finite planet and adoration of shiny things, seems to have developed a “No Worries” attitude through out the populace.

We simply do not appear to comprehend the magnitude of this Extra Giant Turball hurtling our way. And when it does we will see humanity at its worse. Reality TV will now be front and centre on our front yards. Scrambling to survive.

Not from the health issue side, but simply because we can’t survive without store bought shit.

We’re on our own here folks. (my dear Three)

Feb 13, 2020; 2019 nCoV Update, Code Yellow, with hints of a break down in the communication control

Administration sources say they believe China is under reporting the number of #coronavirus cases by at least 100,000 in China. Also sources say the administration believes China is “severely” under reporting the number of deaths from the virus. — Edward Lawrence

(@EdwardLawrence) February 13, 2020

Looks like something real is coming out of Beijing. Possibly even the US White house. Every one treading very carefully so as not to upset the financial applecart. Tweeto don Cheato can’t come down too hard on China cause he needs the stock market to stay up. But he’s pretty good at turning a negative into a positive, so lets wait and see.

I’ve put up this great post by Raúl Ilargi Meijer at his site Automatic Earth. Lots of good articles with a well thought out analysis.

China Cedes Virus Control: “Major developments today (overnight for many) with regards to the COVID19 coronavirus. Probably not so much in infections or deaths per se (at least not that we know), but in the way(s) cases are reported. Or, if a spade is called a spade, the way they have been severely underreported so far….” cont reading here.

And here is Dr Chris’s latest.

Great overview of how the nCoV attacks and a simple solution to building up your immunity.

Wrap it up….please

Its going to start getting crazy out there.

Continue to prepare. More than a months food is not likely enough. Start getting your own medicines stocked up (approx 80%+ all prescription drugs come from guess?…China). Talk to your family about a plan. If this hits the rest of the world like China, we are in for a long hard time.

Stay Resilient.

Feb 12, 2020, Pandemic Update-Code Yellow, continued stench of lying with a wiff of breeze.

Big jump in confirmed cases, +14,840


Deaths up 242.

Food/Water/Health

Some wacky numbers just released. Both confirmed cases and deaths spiked today in Hubei province. Could be the cracks in the story finally letting go.

We’ll see what tomorrow brings.

Real numbers? The WHO with a response that merits the situation? Chinese people storming official offices? Quarantining China? Stock market pay attention to reality?

Nah, that’s wishful. This shit show is going to behave like the Energizer Bunny.

Zero Hedge

The reality is, it will take over a year in my expectation to really find a new vaccine for this so, we need to really use epidemiological controls to really get this situation in a better place,”

Novartis CEO, Vas Narasimhan

Now its the waiting stage of dealing with 2019 nCoV. (“It’s no worse that the flu.”) We wait to see if confirmed infections appear in other areas of the world. Or until we see the real numbers from China. Or Tweeto-don Cheato has a new pearl of wisdom ready to go, about how well the economy is doing. Or a new story unfolds of a miraculous new finding. All so as to keep the financial balls of the world in the air.

Our health and safety is being held up to the whims of the financial world (1%). Cause that’s the way it always been and that’s the way it is.

Its why we can’t deal with climate change, biosphere collapse, disparity of wealth and any of the myriad issues that require solid action now.

Watch. We could be on the edge of a new something. One in which people finally stand up and give a hearty, “Fuck You!” to those in power. May happen in China. If nCov shows up in a concentrated manner in other parts of the world it may happen there.

At some point people will see with their own little eyes the Deplorables (Elite 1%) attempt to control the message on their behalf. For Money.

Or not.

Society

In our baseline scenario, we estimated that the basic reproductive number for 2019-nCoV was 2.68 (95% CrI 2.47–2.86) and that 75,815 individuals (95% CrI 37,304–130,330) have been infected in Wuhan as of Jan 25, 2020.

If the transmissibility of 2019-nCoV were similar everywhere domestically and over time, we inferred that epidemics are already growing exponentially in multiple major cities of China with a lag time behind the Wuhan outbreak of about 1–2 weeks.

It’s what the Best and the Brightest always do … they convince themselves that the people can’t handle the truth, particularly if the truth ain’t such good news. They convince themselves that they can buy enough time to win the real-world war by designing and employing a carefully constructed “communication strategy” to win the narrative-world war.That strategy proved to be a social and political disaster for the United States…”

Feb 11, 2020; 2019 nCoV Update, Code Yellow, with hints of a smoke screen.

“It’s worth remembering the lesson the Black Death in Europe in the 15th century – it triggered a massive labour shortage, wage inflation, ending the age of feudal servitude and sparking a social revolution that led to the renaissance and reformation. Even with limited mortality, the effect of an economic stumble on the Party and Xi’s position could be significant. The unexpected consequences of the Wuhan plague are not yet fully understood. Things change.”

Markets are at record levels, nCoV is receeding. Its all blue skies and puffy clouds in Sheeple land.

Generally:

  • Most Noteable: quarantine period can be up to 10 days longer (14+10 =24).
  • Keeping an eye on the peoples response to their less than forthright government(s)….everywhere seems to be playing the same hand….”sleight of”
  • mostly repeated and updated news items/things from everywhere. Its kinda quiet out there.
  • This is Not the FLU!

You should subscribe. He’s lots of great information.

You could check out all his videos that I’ve posted since Jan 27. I picked the ones that clearly outlined the dangers. He has others for the nCoV geeks.
