RE: The Coronavirus Pandemic thread III
San Francisco locked down.


I was just at the grocery store and it was pandemonium. The shelves are mostly barren, and a long line snaking through the store.

I think we need to manage grocery store access. Maybe something like, only people with last name starts that with A-K can shop on Monday, L-Q Tuesday etc. hard to enforce tho. They did it in the 70s tho, for gas lines, and based on the first letter on your license plate.

I will add more info and references later on as I catch up with this thread and as the situation clears.

Source? The information I have states the first case in Washington state on January 20th. Although I do believe something has been going around for many months. One of my relatives had viral pneumonia way back in early Dec. Could have been COVID 19 or something else. She recovered fine and nobody else got it.

https://www.globalresearch.ca/china-coro...te/5705196

Quote:In February of 2020, the Japanese Asahi news report (print and TV) claimed the coronavirus originated in the US, not in China, and that some (or many) of the 14,000 American deaths attributed to influenza may have in fact have resulted from the coronavirus.

Also this article from the same source (Globalresearch.ca):

COVID-19: Further Evidence that the Virus Originated in the US

The first article above also contains links to Taiwanese reports that also maintain that the virus originated from the US. Both the Taiwanese and Japanese sources were from local scientists and mainstream media who are unlikely to be related to China/the CCP.

This info is pretty important from a purely non-political scientific perspective, because it sheds some light into the nature of this virus and indicates that there are several strains, which will affect items like regional differences in fatality rates and reinfection dynamics, although if it's deemed off-topic here we can further discuss this angle in another thread.

Talk about fake news. The head of this outfit was praised by Noam Chomsky himself.

Quote:Michel Chossudovsky (born 1946) is a Canadian economist, author and conspiracy theorist.[1][2] He is professor emeritus of economics at the University of Ottawa[3][4] and the president and director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG), which publishes conspiracy theories.[5][6][7][8] Chossudovsky has promoted 9/11 conspiracy theories.[9][10][13][14]

In 2017, the Centre for Research on Globalization was accused by NATO information warfare specialists of playing a key role in the spread of pro-Russian propaganda.[6]

Chossudovsky is the son of a Russian Jewish émigré, the career United Nations diplomat and academic Evgeny Chossudovsky, and an Irish Protestant, Rachel Sullivan.[15] Raised in Switzerland, Chossudovsky moved to Canada and joined the University of Ottawa in 1968.[13][16] According to the Ottawa Citizen, Chossudovsky's academic research kept him "on the margins of mainstream academia," but won praise from anti-establishment intellectuals such as Noam Chomsky. In 2005, shortly after Chossudovsky began writing about terrorism, the Citizen reported that Chossudovsky's was "a popular figure among anti-globalization activists," and that some of his students referred to him as "Canada's Chomsky."[13] At that time, some colleagues were becoming uncomfortable with Chossudovsky's ideas, with one professor describing them as having "a conspiratorial element."[13]

In 2005, Chossudovsky published the book America's "War on Terrorism". According to The New York Times, the "conspiracy-minded book... argued that the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were simply a pretext for American incursions into the Middle East, and that Bin Laden was nothing but a boogeyman created by the United States".[9] The book was found in the bookshelf in Osama bin Laden's compound Abbottabad, Pakistan.[9][17][10] According to the Vox website, the book's theory is that "9/11 was a United States government conspiracy to start the Iraq War and enable a "new world order" to help corporate interests. Bin Laden was, at best, a pawn in CIA interests."[10]

Chossudovsky has contributed to the French magazine Le Monde diplomatique.[18] He is frequently quoted by or appears on RT (formerly known as Russia Today) or in material issued by the Sputnik news agency. Both RT and Sputnik are Kremlin-backed.[6]

I hate Macron
But I have to admit that he took good decisions for the economy
He said that bills for everyone (water , gas , electricity etc) will be paid by the state
He also said that army hospitals will be deployed in East region (close to Germany) to help hospitals there.
The state will also take control of taxis and hotels to help healthcare people and to substitute hospitals if overloaded

I'm buying one after this, if I make it through. Just somewhere to hide for round 2 for family and select friends.

This isn't a bad idea, but you can't just "have a farm" that you bug out to, really. You need to already be living the lifestyle you'll need to live afterwards.

That's my plan. It's what I've been wanting to do anyways. It'll suck if this really is the end of society, which I've been forecasting for years, and I just never got around to preparing for it.

Hearing reports that the UK government have u-turned on their strategy and begun social isolation methods after their model introduced on Thursday (which informed their previous strategy of encouraging spread to acquire 'herd immunity') was updated and suggested that this would lead to 250,000 deaths.

Thank God they have changed tack, but 4 valuable days have been wasted.

Was an insane strategy, sociopath almost.

6 months isolation for the vulnerable groups.

All they are doing is asking everyone if they would mind awfully self isolating, for the greater good. There is no dictated lockdown, no enforcement. Schools are still not being closed FFS. Children everywhere will be spreading it.

The government know if they announce a forced lockdown their bluff will be called. There is not the will or means to do it. Not enough police or soldiers. Neither would be loyal anyhow, more concerned for their families.

All they can do is ask nicely and threaten fines or imprisonment. They cannot enforce in the face of mass civil disobedience. The urban vibrants will do as they please. Rural white areas will be more disciplined.

What worries me is if the supply chains break down and the vibrants come out looting to the countryside.

Mentioned many times but Polniy has been ahead of the curve for quite a while now, he has someone in the "know" and has been giving the forum accurate information hours/days ahead of official news.

In Croatia, our national government and crisis committee is fighting cities that are trying to protect themselves. Today, several cities tried to order shops to be closed except for essential businesses, and the national authorities overturned them! Absolutely insane situation. I feel scared for my family and sorry for my compatriots who live in a country occupied by these vile traitors.

It's been noted before in the other threads, PS has an inside source that so far has been quite accurate.

I'll even go so far as to suggest that, based on a lot of what he's posted well before the information became more mainstream, he won't be buying drinks for himself any time soon.

Just throwing a suggestion out to PS, maybe add a short signature in your posts (have it auto generate from your user cp) that you have a source. It might help keep the threads clear of the "Source ?" type posts.

All I took away from Trumps update was "this could last until July or August" and "this is very bad, I've looked at other things like the 1918 flu and this is very bad".

Maybe the worst speech I've ever heard him give and left me feeling unsettled on the verge of an anxiety attack.
