Hundreds of thousands of Chinese citizens traveled to and from Wuhan from abroad during this time. Thus seeding the infection throughout the world.
This was weeks or even months after the Chinese government and the leaders of the Chinese Communist Party knew it was a highly communicable and dangerous virus. That had escaped from their own biowarfare lab in Wuhan. After being genetically altered on two of its receptors. To make it more transmissible to humans.
The evidence of the collection and manipulation of bat viruses is overwhelming. The timeline of infection was made clear months ago. This writer discussed the release of the virus for CDN on Feb 16th. (“Did the Coronavirus escape from Wuhan bio-warfare research lab WHCDC”). CDN revealed the timeline and sourcing of the virus on March 20th. (“Connor Reeds Wuhan Flu Diary: China Virus originates in October 2019”.)
The Epoch Times has done a remarkable documentary on the bat collection and virus superstars of the Chinese scientific media and community. The proof is undeniable.
These were renowned scientists, now kept under wraps, who published papers relating to the alteration of bat coronaviruses in 2013 and 2017.
The Wuhan Virology Lab took a nasty bat virus with unknowable properties and made it easier to enter humans by altering two receptor cells taken from the SARS virus.
So it escaped in early October, as is now confirmed by telemetry in the Wuhan area showing no cell phone activity near the Wuhan Virological Institute. This provides substantive evidence of a “hazardous event” which shuts down the institute from October 7 to the 24th. (Analysis of cellphone location data in high-security area of Wuhan virology lab that studied coronavirus in bats indicates it shutdown in October after a ‘hazardous event’)
Cases began appearing in November the response of the Chinese Communist Party was to invent a cover story about the wet markets. And maintain that cover story for months. Even as the crisis grew. The rest of the story is clear.
Taiwan warns the WHO that the virus is transmissible in late December. The WHO ignores them. They are in the pocket of Beijing. Chinese doctors begin speaking out in Wuhan on the internet that same month. They are quickly silenced, arrested, and disappeared. The principal whistleblower dies of the disease 6 weeks later.
From my own perspective, I have certainly found it extremely difficult to get elderly patients admitted to hospital. I recently managed with one old chap who was found to have sepsis, not Covid-19. Had he died in the care home; he would almost certainly have been diagnosed as “dying of Covid.”
The bottom line here is that, if we do not diagnose deaths accurately, we will never know how many died of Covid-19, or ‘because of’ the lockdown. Those supporting lockdown, and advising governments, can point to how deadly Covid was, and say we were right to do what we did. When it may have been that lockdown itself was just as deadly. Directing care away from everything else, to deal with a single condition. Keeping sick, ill, vulnerable people away from hospitals.
The other reason why having accurate statistics is vitally important is in planning for the future. We have to accurately know what happened this time, in order to plan for the next pandemic, which seems almost inevitable as the world grows more crowded. What are the benefits of lockdown, what are the harms? What should we do next time a deadly virus strikes?
If Covid-19 killed 30,000, and lockdown killed the other 30,000, then the lockdown was a complete and utter waste of time. And should never happen again. The great fear is that this would be a message this government does not want to hear – so they will do everything possible not to hear it.
At the time, Schiff resorted to such desperate measures because he didn’t have much of an impeachment case: Therefore, he issued secret subpoenas to phone carriers hoping to mine the private data of his political opponents, or in effect ransacking their private lives.
… Much to his delight, Schiff’s subpoenas to the phone carriers resulted in their turning over nearly 4,000 pages of confidential records, in the process violating their customers’ rights to data privacy.
None of this has escaped the notice of the top gun at the FCC. Carr is proposing a $200 million fine against the phone carriers for failing to protect their customers who have a legitimate expectation of privacy.
The FCC commissioner, in reviewing the nearly 4,000 pages, had a very pointed question to ask as part of his investigative letter to the House Intelligence Committee (where Schiff serves as chairman). “Is Rep. Schiff continuing to issue secret subpoenas?” That translates to mean: Does the congressman plan to continue to run roughshod over the private lives of political opponents while employing abusive impeachment tactics?
A gun shop in Albuquerque plans to reopen despite a Public Health Order from the governor that says non-essential businesses must close through April 30.
Louie Sanchez, owner of Calibers, said the order is an over-reach by the governor.
“So, we at Calibers have decided that we are going to open up with social distancing on our range,” Sanchez said. “And you know what, we’re going to take this fight back to her. We feel that unless, somehow, she got a magical power to take the Second Amendment out of our constitution, that we have the right to open up.”
Several groups, including the NRA, are suing the state over the Public Health Order-– claiming it’s a violation of the Second Amendment.
In a recent interview with Vice, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden expressed his concerns about the coming surveillance program, calling it the “architecture of oppression.”
“Do you truly believe that when the first wave, this second wave, the 16th wave of the coronavirus is a long-forgotten memory, that these capabilities will not be kept? That these datasets will not be kept? No matter how it is being used, what’ is being built is the architecture of oppression,” Snowden said.
Snowden recognized that the virus was a serious threat and said that the intelligence community was well aware that it was only a matter of time before a massive pandemic crippled the country, even back when he was working in the NSA.
“There is nothing more foreseeable as a public health crisis in a world where we are just living on top of each other in crowded and polluted cities, than a pandemic. And every academic, every researcher who’s looked at this knew this was coming. And in fact, even intelligence agencies, I can tell you firsthand, because they used to read the reports had been planning for pandemics,” he said.
The clip of the incident, which occurred in Eastwood, Rotherham yesterday, features a female officer from South Yorkshire Police warning the man filming the encounter, Mr Connell, to “stay indoors because of
Covid-19” and that “the virus does not stop on your front garden.”
… The woman also chastised the man for wanting to visit the supermarket twice, claiming he had already been and bought soft drinks, which she implies is a non-essential purchase.
“I’m asking you to go indoors, are you refusing to go indoors?” asks the officer, before leaving.
After the video was posted on social media, South Yorkshire Police issued an apology.
“This encounter was well-intentioned but ill-informed and we’d like to apologize for the way it was handled,” said the force, adding that they had spoken to the female officer.
“This is clearly not right,” remarked Alexander Stafford, the MP for Rother Valley. “Whilst cannot see full context of the video, people are of course allowed to be in their gardens – front or back – and should be allowed to continue to do. This is clearly an overreach!”
From cellphone tracking to drone eyes in the sky, perused health records, and GPS ankle bracelets, an epidemic of surveillance-state measures is spreading across the world. It’s all done in the name of battling the spread of COVID-19, of course, since every crisis is used to justify incursions into our liberty. But long after the virus has done its worst and moved on, we’re likely to be stuck with these invasions of our privacy—unless we push back, hard.
The rationales for surveillance are easy to understand, within certain limits. Public health authorities battling the pandemic want to know who is spreading the virus, which people they may have infected, and the movements of those potentially carrying the bug.
The flu breaks out every year, as do other viruses. Americans do not need to be tagged and tracked like cattle, which appears to be their end game in addition to taking away our civil rights. We have the right to free association and sovereignty over our own bodies.
Trump announced on Friday the formation of a new task force to reopen America. It can’t happen a minute too soon. #Reignwell
Kentucky going full totalitarian. Kentucky Democrat Governor, Andy Beshear, has ordered police to photograph (Automated License Plate Reader – ALPR) the license plates of Easter Sunday worshippers who will then be visited by the Ministry of Coronavirus Compliance and forced into a 14 day quarantine.
