Disaster Capitalism is the Real Pandemic

While politicians and MSM cry hysterically about socialism and communism in order to strike fear in the public, the real danger we face is fascism; the corporate control of everything, including our daily lives. Unfortunately too many members of the public drank the kool aid on this one, refusing to accept the true state of affairs that has decimated our economy and is in the process of destroying the lives of everyday Americans.. As corporations that have been determined to be “too big to fail” are bailed out for the second time since 2008, you’d think we would get the message. We, the public, are expendable. We are not “essential”.

Even with the ongoing attempts to censor anything not in line with the government propaganda, the information about the virus continues to surface. Doctors, scientists, microbiologists and many other qualified individuals continue to sound the alarm to convey to the public that they are being set up and lied to. Even so, those who are firmly rooted in the political divides; those who haven’t figured out the biggest conspiracy theory’s ever presented to the public originate from government, and those who just blindly accept whatever they are told hold firm to the biggest conspiracy theory of our lifetimes, if you discount 9/11.

The real reason for social distancing

It seems to me that if this so-called deadly virus spread as quickly and easily as is claimed, standing six feet apart would be of no benefit. The idea that it would borders the ridiculous. Everyone would have to stand perfectly still inside a plastic bubble in order for this to be of any reasonable use.

Keeping us separated has one very distinct purpose. This is a psychological maneuver intended to isolate us and to embed into our minds a sense of isolation. Isolation is a well known form of psychological torture and has a deleterious effect on the mental state of human beings. We are herd creatures and being separated from one another is not a natural state for us. But as long as they can keep us separated, it makes us far easier to manipulate and control.

If there was any real possibility of this virus spreading the way it is claimed, absolutely everything would have been shut down, including large corporate stores and businesses.

Can someone please explain why the majority of local businesses had to close down because of this non-pandemic virus, but huge corporations can continue to operate; the House and Senate can continue to assemble. For God’s sake Home Depot and Walmart are still operating among other like businesses. More

Republicans Are Now Good for Exactly…….. Nothing!

“In less than a month, they have passed the $8.3 billion vaccine bill, the $100 billion relief and paid leave package and the $2.2 trillion Everything Bailout, and are now racing toward another $1.0 trillion interim CARES 2 funding bill to essentially double-down on all the outrageous pork and Free Stuff that was contained in CARES 1, which the House did not bother to even debate or approve by recorded vote.

And, alas, all of this is preliminary to the impending “stimulus/infrastructure” bill where the bidding starts at $2 trillion, meaning that the Imperial City is in the throes of a fiscal bacchanalia that defies imagination. It will leave America with unspeakable debts, political dysfunction and economic debilitation for years, if not decades, to come.”

COVID-19: A Pretext for World Government and Totalitarianism

Another Day in the Empire

The crazy thing about the COVID-19 “crisis” is how easy it is for the state and its media to frighten the public and manipulate ill-informed citizens into embracing economic and social decapitation.

Blinded by scary headlines based on irrational speculation—subsequently revised downward and published on page C-23 of corporate newspapers demanding a bailout—the American people have embraced authoritarian measures supposedly imposed to win a battle against an invisible enemy.

We are now beyond the point of no return. The inflicted economic and social damage has already taken a heavy toll and it will get worse the longer health bureaucrats, state governors, and a remarkably clueless president and his apparatchiks demand we stay imprisoned in our homes, frightened of a bug the state and its media have fictionally rendered as an insatiable and inescapable Gorgon of Doom.

Scott C. Tips, president of the National Health Federation, writes:

In February 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO)—never known for its accuracy or consistency—declared a “Pandemic” for the coronavirus and claimed that the mortality rate for the novel coronavirus disease now designated as COVID-19 was 3.4%, while that for the seasonal flu was 0.1%. Of course, the news media ran with those numbers and splashed scary headlines across the World stating how much more deadly this new virus was than the seasonal flu. The problem with WHO’s statement, however, was that they applied two different formulas for the two viruses. For the COVID-19 disease, for example, they simply didn’t count any of the mild cases of COVID-19 that resolved themselves; yet, they did with the seasonal flu. If WHO were to apply the same formula to seasonal flu cases as it did with COVID-19 cases, then the seasonal flu is revealed more truthfully as being twice as deadly as the COVID-19 virus.

In other words, the globalist WHO—essentially a PR group for transnational Big Pharma and what should be considered the health-industrial complex—is engaged in massive fraud.

Coronavirus Update – March 29, 2020

By Dr. John Reizer

I have been listening to the US presidential press briefing today about the coronavirus, and it looks like we’re going to be practicing social distancing and stay at home procedures through the end of April, and probably a lot longer. They are gearing up the American people for a prolonged shutdown. And if people don’t believe this, they are sadly misinformed. The US and world economies will be toast after this pandemic is finally declared over by the powers that be.

The president has been speaking about how there would have been 2.2 million deaths in the United States if the stay at home and social distancing guidelines that are currently being practiced had not been implemented. It’s almost like he’s following a script. The crisis is not over? They are claiming victory before the storm has passed; based on their claims, this is a real virus.

As of this writing, there are supposedly 2,438 fatal cases in the United States. That’s a far cry from 2.2 million cases. Granted, we have been practicing the stay at home and social distancing suggestions. Even with the mitigation procedures being implemented, the models that the US government is using project that 200,000 or more citizens will succumb to Covid-19.

There are always millions of people around the world sick with respiratory diseases. It’s easy for regulatory agencies to move these case numbers into the coronavirus statistical pool. Remember, the test kits used to record positive coronavirus cases have been reported by the CDC to have had many problems associated with them. They have most likely given false-positive results, and those numbers are a part of the official case numbers we are reading.

COVID-19: Martial Law, Digital Currency, and World Government

Is the corporate media-generated hysteria over what appears to be a normal influenza virus happenstance?

“The real destroyers and psychopathic misanthropes, however, are in high places. They are cynically and criminally exploiting the coronavirus—so far no more dangerous than seasonal flu—to shove their one-world agenda down our throats as easily frightened Americans run around like Chicken Little, begging the state to take care of us before the sky falls.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I certainly don’t claim to be a financial wizard. In fact, at best, I have a rudimentary understanding of how the convoluted funny money economy works. However, you don’t need to fully comprehend the ins-and-outs of rigged monetary system to understand we’re in for big trouble and the coronavirus “pandemic” is not only accelerating the fall but will make the outcome far, far worse.

For more detail on the financial end of this disaster, read Mike Whitney’s Why Washington’s COVID-19 Relief Package Must Be Stopped!

No chance, however. As I write this, Congress passed a pork-laden “stimulus” bill.

If we can believe numbers put out by the CDC, as of Friday, March 27 there were 1,246 deaths in the US attributed to the virus. Compare this with the 1968 H3N2 “Hong Kong Flu.” It reportedly killed 100,000 people in the US and around a million around the world.

At the time, the response was not to lock down the country and destroy the livelihood of millions of Americans and usher in the severe violations of the Constitution we are now witnessing. More

The Senate Corporate Bailout Package Is a ‘Robbery in Progress,’ Warn Critics

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As details of the Senate’s coronavirus stimulus plan slowly trickled in Wednesday, progressive critics characterized the sprawling legislative package as a brazen attempt by both political parties to use trillions of dollars in taxpayer money to bail out and further enrich large corporations while tossing mere crumbs to the most vulnerable.

“This is a robbery in progress,” wrote David Dayen, executive editor at The American Prospect. “And it’s not a bailout for the coronavirus. It’s a bailout for twelve years of corporate irresponsibility that made these companies so fragile that a few weeks of disruption would destroy them.”

“We can call it a bailout. But this is so big it is more like Congress is creating a new government for our economy, replacing our old government. And this one doesn’t have any meaningful democratic protections. A pandemic coup.”
—Zephyr Teachout, Fordham Law

While progressives applauded some provisions in the massive package—including the significant expansion of unemployment benefits and protections for airline workers—Dayen said the stimulus package as a whole is an “outrageous betrayal” of the U.S. public and “a rubber-stamp on an unequal system that has brought terrible hardship to the majority of America.”

“The people get a [one-time] $1,200 means-tested payment and a little wage insurance for four months,” Dayen wrote. “Corporations get a transformative amount of play money to sustain their system and wipe out the competition.”

A Senate vote on the stimulus plan is expected as early as Wednesday afternoon, even though the full legislative text has not yet been released to the public.

The bill would establish a $500 billion fund designed to bail out large corporations hit hard by the coronavirus crisis. Around $75 billion of the program, which would be controlled by the Trump Treasury Department, is earmarked for the airline industry.

But, Dayen wrote, the “enormity of this bailout is being under-reported.”

“The other $425 [billion] helps capitalize a $4.25 trillion, with a T, leveraged lending facility at the Federal Reserve,” Dayen said. “So it’s not a $2 trillion bill, it’s closer to $6 trillion, and $4.3 trillion of it comes in the form of a bazooka aimed at CEOs and shareholders, with almost no conditions attached.”

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the stimulus package also includes a little-noticed $17 billion federal loan program that was inserted largely for the benefit of aerospace giant Boeing.

Dayen appeared on HillTV‘s “The Rising” Wednesday morning to discuss his thoughts on the Senate bill:

VOODOO ECONOMICS: ‘The Covid-19 Dominoes Fall’, The World Is Insolvent

Of Two Minds

– By Charles Hugh Smith

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“…Everyone expecting the financial markets to magically return to January 2020 levels once the pandemic dies down is delusional. All the dominoes of crashing market valuations, crashing incomes, crashing profits and soaring defaults will take down all the fantasy-based valuations of bubblicious assets: stocks, bonds, real estate, bat guano, you name it….The global financial system has already lost $100 trillion in market value, and therefore it’s already insolvent”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Subtract their immense debts and they have negative net worth, and therefore the market value of their stock is zero.

To understand why the financial dominoes toppled by the Covid-19 pandemic lead to global insolvency, let’s start with a household example. The point of this exercise is to distinguish between the market value of assets and net worth, which is what’s left after debts are subtracted from the market value of assets.

Let’s say the household has done very well for itself and owns assets worth $1 million: a home, a family business, 401K retirement accounts and a portfolio of stocks and other investments.

The household also has $500,000 in debts: home mortgage, auto loans, student loans and credit card balances.

The household net worth is thus $1,000,000 minus $500,000 = $500,000.

Let’s say a typical financial crisis and recession occur, and the household’s assets fall 30%. 30% of $1 million is $300,000, so the the market value of the household’s assets falls to $700,000.

Deduct the $500,000 in debts and the household’s net worth has fallen to $200,000. The point here is debts remain regardless of what happens to the market value of assets owned by the household.
