Welcome to Finance and Fury, the Furious Friday edition.

  1. Always told to listen to the experts – argument by authority – The experts know what is best for you –
  2. Also – the higher authority in your life – the government – knows what is best for you
    1. Now – You aren’t allowed to gather at home with more than 10 people – have to socially distance in public or face a $1,000 fine – due to a central power telling you so
  3. Interesting thing with experts and higher authorities – we only ever hear from one side – the side that works in with the Governments narrative

Today – want to share What are other experts saying? We have to believe all experts after all – There are plenty of Other experts – who have differing opinions

  1. Dr Joel Kettner– former Chief Public Health Officer for Manitoba province (Canada between Saskatchewan and Ontario) and Medical Director of the International Centre for Infectious Diseases – must be worried right?
    1. What he says: I have never seen anything like this, anything anywhere near like this. – Sounds bad right?
    2. I’m not talking about the pandemic, because I’ve seen 30 of them, one every year. It is called influenza. And other respiratory illness viruses, we don’t always know what they are. But I’ve never seen this reaction, and I’m trying to understand why. I worry about the message to the public, about the fear of coming into contact with people, being in the same space as people, shaking their hands, having meetings with people. I worry about many, many consequences related to that. In the province of Hubei, where there has been the most cases and deaths by far, the actual number of cases reported is 1 per 1000 people and the actual rate of deaths reported is 1 per 20,000. So maybe that would help to put things into perspective.

But it might be very deadly – or infectious –

  1. Dr Sucharit Bhakdiis a specialist in microbiology – head of the Institute for Medical Microbiology and Hygiene and one of the most cited research scientists in German history
    1. What he says: We are afraid that 1 million infections with the new virus will lead to 30 deaths per day over the next 100 days. But we do not realise that 20, 30, 40 or 100 patients positive for normal coronaviruses are already dying every day. [The government’s anti-COVID19 measures] are grotesque, absurd and very dangerous. The life expectancy of millions is being shortened. The horrifying impact on the world economy threatens the existence of countless people. The consequences on medical care are profound. Already services to patients in need are reduced, operations cancelled, practices empty, hospital personnel dwindling. All this will impact profoundly on our whole society. All these measures are leading to self-destruction and collective suicide based on nothing but a spook.
    2. What about Italy? Dr Yoram Lassis an Israeli physician, politician and former Director General of the Health Ministry. He also worked as Associate Dean of the Tel Aviv University Medical School and during the 1980s presented the science-based television show Tatzpit.
    3. What he says:Italy is known for its enormous morbidity in respiratory problems, more than three times any other European country. In the US about 40,000 people die in a regular flu season and so far 40-50 people have died of the coronavirus, most of them in a nursing home in Kirkland, Washington. In every country, more people die from regular flu compared with those who die from the coronavirus.…there is a very good example that we all forget: the swine flu in 2009. That was a virus that reached the world from Mexico and until today there is no vaccination against it. But what? At that time there was no Facebook or there maybe was but it was still in its infancy. The coronavirus, in contrast, is a virus with public relations. Whoever thinks that governments end viruses is wrong.

So why are scientists referring to it as COVID19 –

  1. Dr Wolfgang Wodarg is a German physician specialising in Pulmonology, politician and former chairman of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. In 2009 he called for an inquiry into alleged conflicts of interest surrounding the EU response to the Swine Flu pandemic – where some members of their board represented the companies producing the vaccines
    1. What he says: Politicians are being courted by scientists…scientists who want to be important to get money for their institutions. Scientists who just swim along in the mainstream and want their part of it […] And what is missing right now is a rational way of looking at things. We should be asking questions like “How did you find out this virus was dangerous?”, “How was it before?”, “Didn’t we have the same thing last year?”, “Is it even something new?” That’s missing.

What are we spooked of – Covid19 – how did this get its naming – COronaVIrus Disease 2019.

  1. From the director-general of the WHO: “Coronavirus” refers to the family of viruses that the disease belongs to and is named for its crown-like shapes under a microscope – “corona” comes from the latin word for “crown” – then 2019 is the year
    1. In naming – “We had to find a name that did not refer to a geographical location, an animal, an individual, or a group of people, and which is also pronounceable and related to the disease,”
  2. But what is the name given to it within the medical community: SARS-CoV-2
    1. Coronavirus Study Group of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses – pathogen is “a sister to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronaviruses,” hence the “SARS” in the name
  3. But the WHO is already pushing back on using the name SARS-CoV-2 for the virus – “From a risk communications perspective, using the name SARS can have unintended consequences in terms of creating unnecessary fear for some populations. For that reason and others, in public communications WHO will refer by using: ‘the virus responsible for COVID-19’ or ‘the COVID-19 virus,’ but neither of these designations is intended as replacements for the official name of the virus.” – Which has SARS at the front – or as scientists call it SARS – 2 – It is essentially SARS 1 and SARS 2 –
    1. Hendrik Streeckis a German HIV researcher, epidemiologist and clinical trialist. He is professor of virology, and the director of the Institute of Virology and HIV Research, at Bonn University.
    2. What he says: The new pathogen is not that dangerous, it is even less dangerous than Sars-1. The special thing is that Sars-CoV-2 replicates in the upper throat area and is therefore much more infectious because the virus jumps from throat to throat, so to speak. But that is also an advantage: Because Sars-1 replicates in the deep lungs, it is not so infectious, but it definitely gets on the lungs, which makes it more dangerous. You also have to take into account that the Sars-CoV-2 deaths in Germany were exclusively old people. In Heinsberg, for example, a 78-year-old man with previous illnesses died of heart failure, and that without Sars-2 lung involvement. Since he was infected, he naturally appears in the Covid 19 statistics. But the question is whether he would not have died anyway, even without Sars-2.
  4. So it is branding – they don’t want to say it is just another form of SARSs – But even taking what we are being told at face value- it is a new deadly type of coronavirus – Like SARS, MERS or what was a fictional disease (CAPS) use in a ‘war games’ scenario called Event201 –

I like to read and research events – and found some interesting works by a few groups – based around hypothetical scenarios of a virus outbreak – similar to war games, or model UN projects play out –

  1. Occurred in October 2019 – Event 201 simulates an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic. The pathogen and the disease it causes are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.
  2. Event 201 – A global pandemic exercise – CAPS Pandemic  – Official Statement – Selected moments from the Event 201 pandemic tabletop exercise hosted by The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated the pandemic preparedness efforts needed to diminish the large-scale economic and societal consequences of a severe pandemic.

Going back further – Operation Lock Step – The Rockefeller Foundation 2010 Report

  1. Title – “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and InternationalDevelopment- Covers a scenario called “LOCK STEP: A world of tighter top-down government control and more authoritarian leadership, with limited innovation and growing citizen pushback.”
    1. This about most countries in the world – more government top down control – not much happening with the economy – innovation was being stifled – lots of protests and civil unrest – yellow vests – France and EU – protests in Hungary over shutting their borders, Wuhan over environment, HK over instilling their own rulers – lots of unrest – Similar to where the world was just 3 months ago
  2. Scenario – “the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit. Unlike 2009’s H1N1, this new influenza strain — originating from wild geese — was extremely virulent and deadly. Even the most pandemic-prepared nations were quickly overwhelmed when the virus streaked around the world, infecting nearly 20 percent of the global population and killing 8 million in just seven months…The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains. Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months, devoid of both employees and customers.” This sounds eerily familiar.
  3. Then the scenario gets very interesting: “During the pandemic, national leaders around the world flexed their authority and imposed airtight rules and restrictions, from the mandatory wearing of face masks to body-temperature checks at the entries to communal spaces like train stations and supermarkets. Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and oversight of citizens and their activities stuck and even intensified. In order to protect themselves from the spread of increasingly global problems — from pandemics and transnational terrorism to environmental crises and rising poverty — leaders around the world took a firmer grip on power.”
    1. What was this scenario – one of panic and fear – if enough panic and fear can be forced onto populations – the more they will allow their own freedoms to be reduced for safety
    2. Safety over freedom – Fear is never a good guide to sound reason. Many people would gladly surrender some of their liberties, in exchange for peace and stability. This is what the game-plan is all about. How much liberty will people give up?
    3. Too much hype and limited facts; the conclusion is that there is 99% fear, and 1% facts. The main stream media are scant with information.
  4. Experts opinion on the subject – Dr Peter Goetzsche is Professor of Clinical Research Design and Analysis at the University of Copenhagen and founder of the Cochrane Medical Collaboration. He has written several books on corruption in the field of medicine and the influence of big pharmaceutical companies.
    1. What he says: Our main problem is that no one will ever get in trouble for measures that are too draconian. They will only get in trouble if they do too little. So, our politicians and those working with public health do much more than they should do. No such draconian measures were applied during the 2009 influenza pandemic, and they obviously cannot be applied every winter, which is all year round, as it is always winter somewhere. We cannot close down the whole world permanently.
    2. Should it turn out that the epidemic wanes before long, there will be a queue of people wanting to take credit for this. And we can be damned sure draconian measures will be applied again next time. But remember the joke about tigers. “Why do you blow the horn?” “To keep the tigers away.” “But there are no tigers here.” “There you see!” – Simpsons did this with a rock –
    3. I find these Hypothetical scenarios very accurate to how events have played out – if nobody had tuned into the news last few weeks – and hadn’t talked to anyone – wouldn’t know anything is going on beyond Government announcement to policy changes – living off grid that isn’t reliant on the system

Thought of something very interesting – None of us have a say – Government does the measures – nobody asked if we would like to keep our jobs – they are deemed a hazard and cancelled – The Gov officials still get to keep their jobs – in QLD we are still being forced to go vote this Sat – using social distancing which will be enforced though – for our protection of course – same pencil

The question remains – why would any government destroy the freedoms of the people it is meant to protect – but instead we are treated like children with no say – but in this case the kids are paying the adults – similar to child celebrity parents – didn’t end out so well for calkin – Psychological effects of this – everyone becomes afraid of each other – told to socially distance – other people are the carries and the threat – don’t be close to communities you can rely on – isolate – sperate – fear other people and trust us to protect you

Social snitching – where we are turned against one another – dobbing in those having people over = house parties or going outside – similar to Stalin, Mao’s and NKs populations – use social shame as a way for people to self police

  1. Based around the normalisation of these measures – what stops this occurring any flu season or the outbreak of a virus – flu season basically lasts all year due to the seasons – if the experts say we need to – people may be likely to follow
