Anyone else sick of this ridiulous hype?
« on: March 27, 2020, 02:20:17 am »

The expression:  "The best enabler for tyranny is fear" comes very much to mind with regard to this.  I am reading horror stories of "civil liberties being suspended indefinitely", legislation being passed to enable local governments to take property, forcibly redistribute food and other property, order people off the streets, close down businesses and seize firearms.  Here it seems that tpb wants everyone to stay in their houses and small businesses to be destroyed and people to lose jobs in factories and shops, they talk of "working from home" - a realistic option only for government department office workers.  They want everyone else to rely on "government assistance" to live and talk of "food grants" and "other assistance" (always assistance from government, never charities - they are wrecking charities as well).

Schools and kindergartens have been closed down and all the kids are at home bugging their parents, using "talking points" about "man-made climate change" and how "we have to do something by 2030 or the world will end" (my 10 year old granddaughter even came out with "we did a study at school that proved that speed-skating is bad for the environment, and one girl in our group does speed-skating for a sport", I said to her "so this girl is going to give up speedskating then?"  Granddaughter:  "Na, she says she doesn't care".  They have also been hyped up with "the corona virus is a deadly disease that is going to kill most of us if  we don't do exactly as the government is telling us".  That, I'm afraid, is a typical view of most adults today too.

The last days and weeks of the coronavirus epidemic give an interesting insight into the human psyche. Elementary liberties are restricted all over the world, such as the freedom of movement or private property. Yet most people accept these restrictions without blinking, as the state declares their indispensability.
A chronology of the events in Madrid: on Sunday, March 8, a large World Women's Day demonstration against the alleged rule of the Patriachate was held. There were 120,000 particiants, and members of the government took part in it, marching side by side in the first row.

snip//When two brothers were seen playing soccer in the garden of an acquaintance's apartment block, the police were called.
People denounce playing children, who are regarded as harmful to public health, and put up posters saying "Quédate en casa" (stay at home). This is a block warden mentality. The most worrying thing is the high number of willing state collaborators. The parallels with the past are unnoticed. No one seems to care, and it is not even discussed.

Is anyone else really sick of this #@%*?

And this is interesting:

http://lenteconservador.com/2020/03/26/globalist-think-tank-laid-out-scenario-where-virus-outbreak-prompts-authoritarian-crackdown/

A Rockefeller Foundation report produced 10 years ago imagined a viral pandemic as the perfect catalyst to implement “tighter top-down government control and more authoritarian leadership,” eerily similar to what’s unfolding during the current coronavirus outbreak.
The 2010 report, entitled, “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development,” outlines several possible future global scenarios, including a “Lock Step” vision in which a “new influenza strain… infects nearly 20 percent of the global population… killing 8 million in just seven months…”

“In 2012, the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit,” the scenario begins. “Unlike 2009’s H1N1, this new influenza strain—originating from wild geese—was extremely virulent and deadly.”

“The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: ……..

There have been executive orders in place Sept. 11 allowing assorted gov. agencies do whatever they want if martial law is declared. Confiscation of anything they want. Food, vehicles, fuel, guns, ammo, property...etc.. Forced relocation into camps (for your safety) forced labor at what ever the bureaucrats want (reallocation of labor)

What I'm wondering is why are people putting up with, and embracing and praising,  this silly #@^&?

Since last week my "email" has been flooded with messages from every business I've dealt with over the years all saying the same garbage ("our policy" is to embrace this silliness and we have closed down everything and are now hiding under our desks with our hands and feet soaking in disinfectant, wearing rubber gloves, respirators and facemasks").  My son was in the middle of a process to have his teeth removed and dentures fitted, he got to the stage of having four teeth left, and now the whole process has been "cancelled", postponed I hope.

Small businesses have been closed down and will never recover, and people are lauding it.

Every business that I talk to on the telephone - ones that are still open that is - has a lengthy spiel about "why we are absolutely ecstatic about having to "comply" with government demands" before someone will answer the call.

Why do people seem to be so happy to "comply" with all this #@^&?

Do your own research.

Find some site that has reliable statistics on the resolution of an infection, that is of known cases where the person has either gotten over the virus, or died.  Add those two results up, divide the number who died by the total number of resolved cases.

Granted, there are hopefully MANY cases out there where folks have gotten ill with this thing, and gotten better without the cause being identified.

But the statistical results of those who were ill enough to seek medical treatment, & got tested, are disturbing.

South Korea is touted in the media as doing "massive testing".  Of those in S.Korea where their illness has ended, the death rate is something over 3%.

There have been far worse "pandemics" throughout history and these ridiculous "curfews" and "lockdowns" have not been imposed on people.

I suppose we are all gob smacked by events. It will take some  time to make sense of it.

If you have not seen David Ick's take on this, you are in for an interesting view...
https://www.bitterrootbugle.com/2020/04/07/david-icke-asks-is-there-a-virus-following-with-a-stunning-answer/

Many of us have noticed widespread unchanged death rates ... suspiciously indicative of official cause-of-death being altered to the more profitable, more sensational one instead of what they would normally blame.

I do not KNOW.

However, "Question Everything" is good advice right now.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2020/04/jim-quinn/the-road-to-perdition-is-paved-with-evil-intentions/

from the Burning platform republished at LRC


As we continue our national lockdown suicide cult to hell, I find myself getting angrier and angrier at the pathetic leadership displayed by politicians, government bureaucrats, so called medical “experts”, and intellectual yet idiot academics displaying their ignorance of facts, reality, history, and humanity. My nature is to be skeptical of everything I read or am told.

I most certainly disregard everything communicated to me by politicians, world leaders, central bankers, corporate CEOs, CNBC talking heads, the mainstream corporate fake news media, and lately – self-proclaimed medical experts who have distinguished themselves by not seeing the danger coming, downplaying the danger, not being prepared for the danger, incompetently handling the danger and righteously proclaiming the nation had to be brought to a full stop because their terribly flawed models said so.


That leaves very few people to trust. I’m not a financial expert. I’m not a political expert. I’m not a religious expert. I’m not a medical expert. But I do know how to think critically and question the basis of every narrative being spun in the world today. I do trust the intentions and intelligence of a number of clear eyed truthful writers, thinkers, investors, commentators and bloggers that include: Nassim Taleb, Ron Paul, Kyle Bass, Chris Martenson, John Hussman, Jim Kunstler, John Mauldin, Jim Grant, Tucker Carlson, Dave Collum, Mike Kreiger, Lew Rockwell, Glenn Greenwald, Harald Malmgren, along with dozens of other thoughtful honest thinkers.

And if this is true from the same article-

Just as the 300-page Patriot Act was sitting in a drawer waiting for the right crisis to come along, the 800-page, again ironically named, $2.2 trillion CARES Act was already written by corporate lobbyists waiting for the next crisis.
