May 30, 2020.
Let’s try to retrieve an understanding of all what’s happening. Omitting any biased comments, precepts and subjective value judgments.
In view of the specifics of the material discussed in this program and the need for regular references in order to be credible, I will be reading from a multitude of sources. Otherwise, the necessary credibility will disappear.
On May 6, 2020 the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation made a very important statement on their website under the headline: “The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation demands access be restricted to sites that contain false information about the coronavirus infection,” which I will quote verbatim Specifically, concerning this restriction mentioned:
“The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation examined materials from prosecutor’s offices of a number of constituent entities of the Russian Federation on posting false and socially significant information on the Internet.
The prosecutor’s office of the Moscow region discovered information on the sale of coronavirus remedies. The description of the products states that: ‘a vaccine against the coronavirus was found in Kazakhstan. These are powerful immunomodulators… you get reliable protection from the Chinese coronavirus and recover from it.’
This information is false, because there is currently no special drug for the treatment of coronavirus.
Moscow prosecutors found videos called ‘Coronavirus Exposure,’ ‘APOCALYPSE TODAY: The devil’s mark, chipization of the planet: part 1’ and ‘APOCALYPSE TODAY: Genetic weapons: part 3’ on the Odnoklassniki social network as well as on YouTube.
In these videos, it is stated that the coronavirus is a genetically modified biological weapon, artificially created for chipping the population and establishing a global world order, with the ultimate goal of exterminating people by infection under the guise of vaccination, adding that it is possible to predict the spread of coronavirus by numerological calculations.
At the same time, neither the World Health Organization, nor the Government of the Russian Federation, nor other official authorities of the Russian Federation have confirmed information on the artificial creation of the coronavirus infection.”
So, if the WHO and the government do not confirm it, then everything else is a fake… What era are we diving into? What do these phrases mean and what political context are they immersed in – more on this later.
I’ll continue to read what is posted on the website of the Prosecutor General’s Office:
“The prosecutor’s office of the Krasnodar Territory found a video on the VK social network and on the YouTube video platform, the author of which demonstrates a door to the entrance of an apartment building that has been welded shut, with a small cut-out square hole for transferring food. The author then indicates that these measures were taken in connection with one of the residents being diagnosed with coronavirus.”
Meanwhile, according to the information of the acting Deputy Chief of the Main Directorate of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Krasnodar Territory, the published material does not correspond to reality.
Thus, the indicated materials contain inaccurate socially significant information that poses a threat of harm to the life and health of citizens and is a massive violation of public order and public safety.
Taking into account all of the aforementioned, the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation on the basis of Part 1 Article. 15.3 of the Federal Law “On Information, Information Technologies and the Protection of Information” appealed to Roskomnadzor [Russian communications oversight agency – translator’s note] requesting measures be taken to restrict access to these publications, and if similar materials are published on other Internet resources, to also restrict access to them.
What can I say about this?
First of all, if some scammer wants to sell a coronavirus medication, while in fact such a medication does not exist, then this scammer must be exposed and called to account. No objections here.
Secondly, if deliberately false information about doors welded shut is distributed with provocative goals, then this too must be stopped. No questions here either.
Thirdly, a truly sensitive question exists about phobias associated with excessive technical control over the inhabitants of the world. There is no doubt that many are striving for this control; there is also no doubt that everything concerning the capacity of such control and everything that follows, needs to be divided into what is real, and not very impressive, and what is made up. Subsequently, one then has to say that, for now, many capabilities are imaginary. No one is going to stick a chip – or a nanochip –into your brain tomorrow, because they can’t. They want to, and given how the socio-political process and the trends are developing now, they will certainly do it to your grandchildren; but those are your grandchildren.
The threat of a special totalitarianism being established that turns a person into a robot for the elite to manipulate undoubtedly exists. We are talking about a key threat here – the threat of techno-dehumanization of humanity, of the human race as such. But it still arises from something! If a person does not have a sacred sovereign essence, no matter what it’s called: Marx’s species being or the divine spark, then why not tighten the nano-screws using new technological capabilities? And it doesn’t matter if it’s eugenics, or so-called mind control, or regular totalitarianism, or some other modifications of information control, electronic control, an electronic concentration camp, etc. It is all the same here. And you definitely need to sound the alarm about everything that such distortions signify. And you have rein in not those who fear this, but those who move in this direction and cause this fear. And we must always remember that the Nuremberg Tribunal once carried out such an act of moderation, while the scum this tribunal convicted – many of them – spoke about their desire to improve the human breed, to destroy the inferior, and “merely” conduct a rational scientific selection of humans. Like, since the mechanisms of Darwinian natural selection do not work, something must be done! The Nazi bosses and all of Dr. Mengele’s accomplices could’ve said anything. And what did the Japanese, who tested various types of biological weapons on prisoners, say at the relevant court hearings?
So, does humanity have no reason to fear of all this? Sure, this justified fear (fear is a normal human feeling) gives rise to unjustified fear, that is, a phobia. Yes, in difficult situations this phobia can cause panic, one has to fight the panic. But here one can’t get away with unilateral measures. Here it is necessary to seek some kind of balance, and to call both sides to order: those who create fear and those who are afraid. I’ll repeat: those who are afraid, are afraid of people getting turned into manipulatable robots. What, should people not be afraid of this? And what, are there really no signals about attempts to move in this direction – towards excessive control?
You might ask me if I believe that some vaccines today can program a person’s consciousness by including various kinds of nanoparticles or nanochips in their composition. No, I don’t believe that. Maybe I’m wrong, maybe not, but I don’t believe that. And not because I consider whichever elite – ours or the international elite – to be incapable of such human rights violations. I think all of these elite are capable of anything.
I just do not believe that right now the elite is able to technologically implement this anti-utopia. But tomorrow the possibilities of science and technology will become greater, and then why not? Moreover, His Majesty Fear always lies at the basis these kinds of harnessing people and turning them into controllable machines. This already happened at the very beginning of the 21st century in connection with the attack on the twin towers and all that followed – it was called the “war on terrorism”. Who knows how many people there are, who’d like to, under any pretext, carry out such a desirable saddling of mankind by a certain elite that would technocratically rule everything in the world, including thoughts? Does the presence of such desires mean that any phobias should be nourished and amplified? Of course not. This should never be done, especially in acute situations.
But you can’t just yell the phobias away. They are restrained in a different way – not only in a more flexible and smart way, but most importantly, with trust, persuasion, and evidence. And not by the principle of “now we’ll ban everything and have Heaven on Earth.”
Now from these problematic issues, regarding which there is a bit of a teeter-totter, whether or not something needs to be stopped, I’ll transition to some strange and dubious things that were voiced alongside the legitimate desire to save people from buying fake drugs.
As we already had the opportunity to verify, the statement of the Prosecutor General’s Office said that neither the World Health Organization (WHO), nor the government of the Russian Federation, nor other official authorities of the Russian Federation have confirmed reports on the artificial origin of the coronavirus infection.
But had everyone immediately refuted it? If information has neither been confirmed nor denied (and this, for example, is an entire field of research), then should it be banned? Should thoughts themselves be prohibited, along with attempts to investigate certain issues? Don’t you think this looks a little strange? Moreover, this contradicts some of what the authorities, that the Prosecutor General’s Office refers to, are carrying out, and we will discuss this now. So, if information is not confirmed by the WHO (which is now being discredited every which way, and which does not mean anything), as well as by the government of the Russian Federation and other official bodies, then this information is false. and because it is false, it should be withdrawn from circulation.
You know, there was a joke during the era of Gorbachev’s ridiculous campaign, during the initial period of his reign. The court is hearing the case of some poor fellow, who drank some beer while off duty. And it renders a verdict, that due to such a gross violation of the party line, the defendant is sentenced to capital punishment – execution by firing squad. They say: “Defendant, you have the right to a final statement.” The worker gets up, looks at the court and says: “Y’all gotta be flippin’ kidding me!”
Regarding this, I want to draw your attention to three points.
First of all, the political discussion about the artificial nature of the coronavirus at this stage is just gaining steam. And one of the possible scenarios (I emphasize, only one of the possible, no more, but no less) is that over time, both the leaders of China and of the United States will start talking about the coronavirus being artificial (blaming it on each other) and then the Europeans, Indians, and so on, may also join the fray. Everything is already close to this. And then the Russian authorities will have to determine their stance on the matter.
But a consensus on this issue simply does exist neither among scientists, nor among politicians. And the Prosecutor General’s Office cannot fail to notice this, unless it has gone blind and deaf at the same time.
On May 6, 2020… (May 6 – That is, on the same day when the Prosecutor General’s Office made its statement) TASS informs us on a statement by Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov. Moreover, this statement by Peskov is clearly linked to the verdict by the Prosecutor General’s Office, they flat-out asked him about it.
According to TASS, Peskov “noted that while no one has detailed information about this coronavirus (emphasized by me. – S.K.), it is under very close study by virologists around the world. 100% reliable estimates and reliable data simply do not yet exist now for the very reason that it [the virus. – TASS] is new. Therefore, in this case we probably shouldn’t make any definitive statements (regarding the virus – whether it has one nature or another, this is what they’re asking Peskov, right? – S.K.), without good reason for this.”
What does “we” in “we shouldn’t” imply? Is the Prosecutor General’s Office part of this “we” or not? Do we have a total lack of coordination in the most acute of situations? It’s acute not only biomedically, but also politically. Maybe someone fails to notice this, but then this someone is a strange person.
Notice that this statement by the man whose duty it is to voice the position of the President, and a diametrically opposite statement by the Prosecutor General were made on the same day. Peskov directly enters into a discussion with the Prosecutor General’s Office, the discussion arises because journalists asked Peskov about this. What do you think, does this contribute to people having a correct attitude about what is happening, and to people’s confidence that the government is consolidated and makes appropriate decisions in this consolidated state?
This is the political side of things.
But along with the political moment, there is a second – scientific moment, right? Imagine that we live during the Inquisition. And everyone in the world knows that the Sun revolves around the Earth, and not the Earth around the Sun. Everyone knows this, all the official authorities: the kings of devoutly Christian states, and the infallible pope, and among others, the councils of scientists, universities and others. Everyone knows that Ptolemy is right, and Galileo is wrong. But in actuality, everything is the exact opposite!
Therefore, in a scientific dispute based on freedom of thought, there can be no verdict rendered by whoever. The majority of respected scholars, at first treated the confabulations of some insignificant patent office worker about how the world works, with indignation. Do you know what that insignificant worker’s name was? Albert Einstein. Everyone was indignant! Four-dimensional space… The inconstancy of time and the dependence of the passage of time on velocity… The curvature of time and space under the influence of gravity… “What a nonsense!” Well, who was right?
It was even worse with quantum mechanics. “How can a particle be a wave at the same time?” What rubbish are you talking about! You’ve got to be crazy!” How did it all end, my dear verdict lovers? Here’s how it ended: on the basis of all this nonsense, which outraged common sense, they created an atomic bomb and dropped it on you know who and on you know what country.
So, when you prohibit the freedom of thought, the freedom to search for an answer to a question today, tomorrow it may turn out that your opponent, who did not ban it, will gain such an advantage that you will be powerless. There is such a parable: Fulton first proposed to building steam ships, that use steam instead of wind, to Napoleon. But Napoleon refused. And when then these ships began to move, he allegedly said:
“When I kicked Fulton out of the Tuileries, I lost my crown.”
Even if it’s only a parable, it’s very insightful.
Are my examples too gloomy? Well, there are less gloomy ones. They yelled and screamed about how genetics and cybernetics were supposedly forbidden under the terrible Stalin. And where have we ended up?
And finally, there is a third point. It lies in the fact that the shaky informational society that is forming in front of our eyes, which is reality, cannot be changed overnight – you can’t control it through bans like this. You can only find yourself in a stupid and comical situation. And when social tension grows, it is very dangerous to wind up in that position. Laughter is a powerful weapon if it’s in the capable hands of destroyers. It will certainly end up in their hands, sooner or later. And that is even more dangerous than any riots and vulgar orgies out there. Moreover, it only starts with laughter, then you get the massive disturbances that we remember from perestroika. And then – the end of the state.
So, isn’t it time to stop and think?
In order to make it easier for everyone to think – both for citizens and for the authorities – we need structured and objective information. You see, now is an era of information surplus. There’s too much of it. The brain does not perceive it. There is also a computer-driven oversaturation of information, which leads to the brain gliding along its surface, without grasping anything. There is no method for organizing it, for separating the garbage from what is valuable. Therefore, it is necessary to identify the valuable information, to cancel out the noise, including subjectivity, based on the principle of “I like something, and that’s why it’s true.”
I’m going to try now to identify this information and to organize it in a way as to minimize the subjective, discussing only the key statements. Those that are important even if they are just statements. These may not be facts, but they are statements that are very significant.
Trust me, a lot can be extracted using this method. And don’t write it off as hearsay. That’s the problem, that with the current surplus of information, which is more dangerous than a deficit, there is too much hearsay. This deafens hearing instead of sharpening it.
Let’s try to get ourselves back to understanding what’s happening. Omitting any biased comments, precepts and subjective value judgments.
I will cite only other people’s statements, and I’ll reveal their combined meaning. I will start with recent statements and gradually move back to the beginning of the coronavirus story, sometimes violating this chronology when it is necessary to identify very significant coincidences.
On May 7, 2020, the newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets, citing an informed source, reports that billionaire Dmitry Bosov, who committed suicide, was supposed to be a witness in the case against the detained Anatoly Bykov.
According to the source, who shared information with Moskovsky Komsomolets, Bosov faced a dilemma. If he had begun to defend Bykov and to testify in his defense, he (hereinafter citing Moskovsky Komsomolets) “could be reminded of incidents from the ‘90s.” If the billionaire had decided to witness against the detainee, this would be a reason people who close to Bykov as a regional politician to seek revenge. Moskovsky Komsomolets states: “Probably, this (plus other problems) could have pushed the oligarch off balance.”
The publication explains that Bosov and Bykov “were connected through the natural resource business in the ‘90s.” According to Moskovsky Komsomolets, the billionaire Bosov “supplied the necessary materials for a continuous cycle to the Krasnoyarsk aluminum plant.”
Bosov’s body was found on May 6, 2020 in the fitness room of his country house in the community of Usovo near Moscow. A gun was lying next to the body.
The son of an entrepreneur did not comment on the death of his father and called it family matters.
However, other relatives reported strange behavior on Bosov’s part. According to them, he began to carry a gun with him; in addition, he began to have financial problems.
I don’t want to discuss too much on this topic, which, for all its importance, is not directly related to the COVID pandemic. But since this topic is indirectly related, I will nevertheless make one note in the margins.
The community, to which both Bykov and Bosov belong, is divided into the protectors and the protected. In order for the protected to be killed or arrested for dealings of bygone days, something must happen among the protectors. The protected must enter into conflict with the guardians, or they must somehow offend them. Or (which is also very possible) something happened within the community of the protectors themselves. Some of the protectors began to gain power, and they remembered something, while someone, on the contrary, became weak and temporarily lost the ability to resist. Some of these protectors became more active, while others had to temporarily keep a low profile. Without one or another form of reshuffling among the protectors – disappointment or resentment towards the protected, losing part of one’s potential, or changing one’s strategy – without all this, what happened to Bosov and Bykov would be impossible.
Someone will cry out that I am peddling conspiracy theories. Please! I know this story very well. And my assessment has nothing to do with conspiracy theories. Sooner or later you will see that it is absolutely fair. And if it’s so, then this story is indirectly related to the coronavirus. For the coronavirus affects the political process, and this story cannot be removed from the political process.
After all, everyone always knew everything about Bykov. He had it good for 20 years. The same went for Bosov. We say “Bosov”, but we mean certain protectors and so on. Half of the Moscow elite knows all this. But they are discussing everything as though we all live not in our painfully familiar society, but somewhere on another planet, where nothing means anything, no one is connected with anyone, and everything is regulated by some abstract rules.
Well, now about COVID. Here I’ll start with bloody deeds.
On May 5, 2020, the Philadelphia portal PhillyVoice informs that a researcher who was investigating the origin of the coronavirus was murdered (pertaining to the question of whether everything is clear about its origin).
It is reported that Bin Liu, a Chinese researcher at the University of Pittsburgh (that is, an American researcher of Chinese descent) who studied the coronavirus and intended to publish the results of his research soon, was killed at his own home. It is also reported that the killer, a 46-year-old Chinese man named Hao Gu, after killing Liu, committed suicide in his car on the same day. According to the police, the newspaper writes, the killer knew the scientist, but their connection had nothing to do with Liu’s research on the coronavirus (how does the police know this? – S.K.). The motive for the murder still has not been established, concludes PhillyVoice. And it will not be established, I’ll add from myself.
These kinds of bloody clashes happen around the origin of the coronavirus (artificial or not artificial, if artificial, then who created it, and so on) about which some say: “Information about the artificial creation of the coronavirus infection has not been confirmed.”
On May 6, 2020, The Guardian publishes a message on a topic that I previously touched on in one of the programs: that restrictions imposed on the provision of medical care to other categories of patients because of the coronavirus can lead to an increase in the number of deaths from other diseases (not from the coronavirus).
Specifically, The Guardian reports on a study according to which the coronavirus situation will lead to the deaths of 1.4 million people from tuberculosis.
This study was conducted by the Stop TB Partnership, together with Imperial College London and Johns Hopkins University. It is based on data on how the countries with the highest number of COVID-19 cases diagnose and treat tuberculosis in isolation. The following is explicitly stated: “We’ve rolled back to 2013 figures and we have so many people dying.”
The executive director of the Stop Tuberculosis organization, Lucica Ditiu, said this. She adds that only two or three vaccines for TB have been developed over the past 100 years, while more than a hundred vaccines are being developed for the coronavirus infection, even though only 120 days have passed since the epidemic has begun. Ditiu is upset that humanity has not invented a cure for HIV, malaria, and other diseases.
On May 7, 2020, the high-tech.fm portal informs us that the coronavirus arrived in France a month earlier than was previously thought – back in December of 2019. A patient, in whose sputum the SARS-CoV-2 virus was detected, was hospitalized on December 27, 2019, while the first case of COVID-19 was officially registered on January 26, 2020, almost a month later. Researchers from the University Hospital in Saint-Denis say this. The infected person was a 42-year-old man from Algeria. He permanently resides in France and the last time he left the country was in August 2019 – that is, four months before getting infected. Moreover, the man had never been to China.
On May 5, 2020, TASS informs us that the head of the Robert Koch Institute of virology in Berlin (subordinate to the German Ministry of Health) Lothar Н.Wieler said: “We know that there will almost certainly be a second wave.”
This is what I was talking about. That you can’t knock it off balance with only one shot. And if that needs to happen, they will hit several times. Wieler continues that he is working off of the assumption – and this is confirmed by experts – that the infection will spread in a second and third wave.
That means, they’re knocking it off balance. This is significant.
On May 4, 2020, Reuters reports that a report from the Ministry of State Security of the People’s Republic of China states that the threat of war with the United States is serious because of the coronavirus. That Chinese intelligence considers this threat to be far from speculative. That anti-Chinese sentiments in the world, according to intelligence assessments, had reached their peak 31 years ago during the crackdown on Tiananmen Square. And since then no such peaks have occurred up until now. And because of this, the Communist Party should seriously prepare for a military confrontation with the United States.
This does not mean that there will be a confrontation. The Chinese are very careful. But this is an official report by the Ministry of State Security. And occurred because of the coronavirus. Is it a coincidence that the coronavirus is causing precisely this? We will continue analyzing this.
On May 2, 2020, the main Chinese newspaper, People’s Daily, which plays a more important role than the newspaper Pravda did in 1970, very sharply rebuts US accusations against China, which the US says is to blame for humanity’s problems because of the coronavirus. People’s Daily suggests that the United States answer 10 questions related to the coronavirus pandemic and the US role in this pandemic. I will list these questions, for this is very serious. I will just quote People’s Daily.
“1) Regarding the restarted avian influenza virus modification experiment last year, why does the US release no more updates?”
What is it all about? What does the People’s Daily ask? About artificial viruses and experiments on virus modification.
“2) The United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) was previously closed.What is the truth behind?”
Isn’t it because there were some leaks? Isn’t that what they mean?
“3) The US Department of Health and Human Services ran a scenario last year that was similar to the COVID-19 outbreak. Is this just a coincidence? ”
Commenting on this statement, People’s Daily writes that this question is being asked because The New York Times had quoted a report in March that members of the US government received. The report said that from January to August 2019, the US Department of Health and Human Services worked on a scenario, code-named “Crimson Contagion” which simulated a fictional outbreak involving a group of tourists who visited China and became infected with a new virus, and then scattered into different countries, including the United States.
Remember this name – “Crimson Contagion.” This is not a conspiracy theory – it is an official Chinese reference to official US document.
In this scenario, People’s Daily writes, a fictitious “CAPS virus” was introduced. It caused more serious symptoms than the real coronavirus, and it was also transmitted through the respiratory tract like the regular flu. In addition, it also caused a pandemic, as was the case with SARS. The scenario also stipulated that there was no vaccine against CAPS.
“4) US intelligence officials warned of coronavirus crisis as early as last November. Why the warning was ignored?”
Despite these warnings, the People’s Daily writes, a state of emergency in the United States was declared only on March 13 this year.
“5) Among the reported influenza deaths in the US, can the US clarify how many cases are actually infected with COVID-19?
“6) When did the novel coronavirus first appear in the US? Did community transmission of the coronavirus start sooner than it was reported?
7) How did the US get the virus strains so soon to start the first human testing of a vaccine against COVID-19?
8) Why did the US government keep downplaying the pandemic while its officials privately dumped stocks?
9) Why are US experts not allowed to discuss COVID-19 in public?”
This is reported by “People’s Daily”, can you hear me? You think of it as simply dictated by Xi Jinping. Or discussed at the Politburo.
“10) What research is being done in the US overseas biological laboratories? Why does the US keep tight-lipped about it?”
Even after all this has been written, will we say that it is not necessary to discuss the artificial nature of the coronavirus (while this is the only thing that the high-ranking Chinese comrades are doing here!) because such discussions are fake news?
On May 7, 2020, TASS reported, citing CNBC, that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did not see any reason to doubt the conclusion of the US intelligence community that the new coronavirus was not of artificial origin.
Why make such a statement? The Secretary of State was asked to clarify this issue, since he himself announced on May 3, 2020 that the virus was created artificially.
According to TASS, Pompeo claimed that Washington has evidence that coronavirus allegedly began to spread from a laboratory in Wuhan, China. However, on May 4, Anthony Fauci, the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in an interview to National Geographic that there is scientific evidence that the new coronavirus mutated in the wild without any human intervention.
Pompeo, in an interview of May 7, emphasized that attempts to contrast his words with the opinion of the chief infectious disease specialist in the US (quote) are “aiming to confuse and create friction inside the United States government.”
“The intelligence community has conducted its analysis with the information that it has. It has said that this was not a man-made virus. I’d see no reason to dispute that,” said the Secretary of State.
Did he have reasons on May 3? This means that some infectious disease specialists who have an opinion different from that of the Secretary of State, but apparently the same as Vice President Pence, are causing confusion and friction with their reasoning. Pompeo does not say what is right and what is not. He says that there should be a consolidated position on this issue. Sometimes it seems that Pompeo says something, and then a mess begins, and not only in the United States. Such a bold hypothesis is also possible.
April 29, 2020 Interfax cites Dr. Anton Molochkov, the deputy director of the M.F. Vladimirsky Moscow Regional Research Clinical Institute (MONIKI). According to him, the end of the coronavirus epidemic in Russia is difficult to predict due to COVID-19’s extremely unusual behavior.
This is the same thing that Peskov says: well, we don’t know what it is. How can we say it is artificial or natural, if we don’t know what it is? But Peskov is not a specialist in virology, he is just a person who understands that when you do not know what you are dealing with, you need to not slap people to the right and left and say that this it’s one thing and not the other. Understand it first. And Molochkov is a specialist. Moreover, MONIKI, as we know from Soviet times, is a serious organization.
Molochkov states (and I quote) “based on the biological properties of previously known viruses, <…> this virus (we are talking about COVID-19. – S.K.) does not fit into ordinary laws. It behaves completely unpredictably from a biological standpoint.”
There is a natural logical question – why does this virus behave differently from the others? Why is it biologically unpredictable? It can be biologically unpredictable only if it is not completely biological. All the others are predictable, but this one is not. Please note, we are talking about biological predictability. It behaves “not biologically”, which means – artificially. That’s why it’s unpredictable. This is a piece of delicate, yet powerful reasoning by quite an authoritative specialist.
On May 7, 2020, The Washington Post informs its readers that the recently released and widely distributed first episode of the film Plandemic, shot by a prominent figure in the American anti-vaccination movement, Judy Mikowitz, was removed en masse from social networks and video hosting sites.
Do you feel how something strange is happening in the world? Someone is pounding the table much too hard.
The video hosting sites Youtube and Vimeo, as well as Facebook, removed the copies of “Plandemiс” from their servers. The reason given for blocking the film is “dangerous and misleading information” presented in the film, for example, the statement that “wearing a mask can make you sick could lead to imminent harm”
Giving hazardous information in terms of health is not good. But there are also statements by professionals that masks can lead to fungal diseases, that they can have negative effects and make breathing difficult… Refute these claims! Refute them, instead pounding your fist on the table.
The Washington Post continues that the film “Plandemiс” also discusses the notion that a number of billionaires deliberately helped spread the coronavirus to then subject the population to mass vaccination. And the film accuses a key figure in the United States, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Anthony Fauci, of dishonesty.
Only mutes don’t accuse Anthony Fauci of dishonesty!
The film cites quotes from Fauci, taken out of context, to present him as a liar and manipulator, according to The Washington Post.
Does anyone think differently?
On Facebook alone, 1.8 million people managed to watch it before the film was removed, reports The Washington Post.
Will no one watch this film at all after it was deleted?
I already quoted Dmitry Peskov, the Russian Presidential Press Secretary, that since we don’t know the nature of the coronavirus, we should not discuss whether or not it is artificial. Now I will cite another statement by Peskov, which he made earlier and which is interesting for several reasons. Peskov says that forecasts are unlikely to be accurate; that the situation is not simple, and it requires coordinated work.
April 28, 2020, RIA Novosti quotes Peskov, “You know, we are reading about multiple attempts to analyze the situation, we are reading lots of forecasts, lots of verdicts for different groups of people, different industries, production, and participants in economic life. One thing is obvious: the situation is not simple, <…> and it requires a lot of well-coordinated work from the country’s leadership, from the government, from local leadership and from participants in economic life.” Peskov suggests: let’s draw conclusions as the situation unfolds.
Is he just saying this for the hell of it? No.
Is it not clear whom he is arguing with? It’s absolutely clear.
On April 27, the rector of the Higher School of Economics Yaroslav Kuzminov said in an interview with RBK that the economic crisis resulting from the coronavirus pandemic may lead to the middle class to slip into poverty. Before that, on April 25, Aleksey Kudrin, another iconic figure, voiced the “worst-case scenario” for unemployment in Russia as a result of the coronavirus. In his opinion, unemployment in Russia could rise in 2020 to 7–8%, or in the worst-case scenario, up to 10% of the economically active population.
What is Peskov saying? He says: listen, if the situation is risky, either leave the team, or calm down somehow. Stop jumping around in every direction! We think that the nature of the coronavirus is unknown, and you jump out and say: “We’re banning everything that indicates a certain nature.” We say that we are going to work, and you’re saying that everyone is doomed. Don’t do it!
Does he have grounds for this? I think he does.
Now let’s talk about the opinions (only opinions!), according to which the coronavirus has an artificial nature. Notice that I’m not calling them absolute. I just want to say that they’re coming from random people. Not from prosecutors who went to law school, or analysts, or physicists, but people with unique achievements in the field of virology.
On April 27, 2020, the Rossa Primavera news agency reported that the famous French scientist and Nobel Prize laureate in medicine, Luc Antoine Montagnier, said in an interview with Serbian News that COVID-19 was created artificially.
Now, should you immediately send a notice of protest to the Serbs that this is fake news and forbid a Nobel laureate in virology to express his point of view?!
Montagnier claims that it all started with experiments on a well-known bat virus. At this point, an error may have occurred or there may have been a leak from the laboratory. Did they experiment with mice? And as a result, the experimenters got the opposite of what they were looking for.
According to the scientist, the laboratory team was trying to get an AIDS vaccine with the help of the coronavirus. Montagnier next explains how this was done. He says that short sequences of 20 nucleotides, the basic units of the genetic material from the AIDS virus were inserted into the coronavirus. He has heard criticism, he adds, that the inserts are too small to introduce new information into the protein. But these small fragments can alter the behavior of proteins and alter the composition of the virus’ outer envelope to make it capable of infecting human cells.
You know, the cell must be lured in with a protein. The cell is attracted to the protein, so it wants to take in this virus, then it destroys the viral protein shell, and that’s when the whole mechanism of genetically reprogramming the cell begins, and it starts to produce the virus. And then it dies.
Montagnier further notes that those who criticize him are playing with the meaning of the word “natural”. The truth is that at first this virus was natural, because coronaviruses exist naturally in bats, not only around Wuhan, but much further, in another Chinese province, Yunnan. The “model” was discovered in the bat virus, which was later processed and modified for adaptation to humans. What is interesting to know now is the future of this chimeric virus.
And here, the scientist believes, nature takes everything back into its hands. Scientists are currently investigating how the coronavirus epidemic is developing in the United States, where there are millions of infected people and where the virus is changing rapidly, especially in the part that Montagnier believes was inserted. (That’s why it is a biological anomaly, as the MONIKI representative says.) This part is mutating intensively, and it is in the process of extinction. The virus will self-destruct.
That is an optimistic point of view.
Again, I am not pushing on anyone with Montagnier’s authority. I’m not saying that once someone says something it becomes the truth. Someone said one thing, Fauci said something different, the third – something else, the forth – something else. That’s confusion. This is what Peskov is talking about: we don’t really know what is happening. But something strange is in the air.
Again, I don’t want to absolutize Montagnier’s position. Especially since he is expressing a certain political position in his statements. But here is what Indian scientist Anand Ranganathan, representative of the International Center for Genetic Engineering, earlier, at the end of January wrote on his Twitter account (subsequently this entry was deleted): “Indian scientists have just found HIV (AIDS) virus-like insertions in 2019-nCov that are not found in any other coronavirus. They hint at the possibility that this Chinese virus was designed [‘not fortuitous’]. Scary if true.”
I want to say that India has good virology. India is known not just its respected brahmans. India has very modern centers for high technology and advanced studies, including scientific ones.
We can cite similar opinions from other fairly authoritative scientists. I emphasize, scientists with experience, knowledge and authority under their belt. Not some charlatans.
So, not being professional in a field where the scientific elite is hesitating, is it worth coming down with some verdict? It is hesitating. I am not saying that I’m citing things to confirm a version that I like. No, there is nothing here that I like. I want objectivity. But I insist that one can’t ignore the insistent statements from prominent experts about SARS-CoV-2 being artificial, unless he’s hiding his head in the sand, like an ostrich. Or if there is some conflict of interest. Do you know what Belinsky said about Gogol’s letter? “Either you are ill, and you should promptly seek treatment; or – I dare not finish my thought…”
On April 24, 2020, the Chinese daily Global Times reported that Chinese scientists are calling for an investigation with the WHO on previously unknown COVID-19 deaths in the United States that occurred in early February 2020. According to official data, the first US death from COVID-19 occurred on February 29, 2020 in Kirkland, Washington. It turned out that on February 6, 2020, a 57-year-old woman died in her house in California, and on February 17, a 69-year-old man also died in California from COVID-19.
Do you understand what the Chinese are talking about? They’re saying: we’re not letting you off on this. We are gathering intelligence on your territory, and it’s of high quality.
This is what Global Times announced on April 24. And on April 23, 2020, Interfax informs on the US Air Force reporting that Minuteman 3 ICBM command posts in the US have been placed on full alert because the coronavirus pandemic.
Are they going to hit the viruses with Minutemen? Will they nuke one individually, or clouds of these viruses? Or are there aliens attacking us? What do Minutemen have to do with anything? You know what. Relations between China and the United States have become extremely strained around this topic. Maybe they will manage it. (I think they will). Or maybe not. But anyway, what is all this tension around? Around this artificial or non-artificial nature of the coronavirus. It is now at the global center of attention. It is the main card in the political game.
April 23, 2020, CNN indicates that Michael Caputo, the new spokesman for the US Department of Health and Social Affairs published a number of racist and abusive Twitter messages to the Chinese. These posts are currently deleted. CNN reporters used the Wayback Machine service, which stores website histories, in order to find and analyze over 1300 deleted messages. According to the publication, Caputo responded offensively to criticism from users of the US, who claimed that the Americans had brought the virus to Wuhan. He claimed that the Chinese had contracted the infection because they “suck the blood out of rabid bats as an appetizer and eat the ass out of anteaters.”
Caputo responded to CNN about his publications. The publication quoted him as saying: “fair game, dude. I don’t care. It doesn’t matter to me at all,” he is quoted. Caputo claims that he deletes his tweets “every month and I do it because it drives people mad.” His explained his statement by saying he was “a defender of the President” [of the US]. But he said he is “now a servant of the American people and some might be disappointed, but my tweets will be different.” Nevertheless, the publication cites a collection of messages by the politician with insults not only against the Chinese, but also shared conspiracy theories about the origin of coronavirus.
On April 23, 2020, Politico, an US politically-oriented publication based in Arlington, Virginia, reports that representatives of the US defense and intelligence agencies are probing into the threat of a coronavirus bioweapon.
They are worried. The Chinese are worried. What are we doing? On the one hand, we say that we don’t know, but we’re banging our fist on the table with the other. That’s not good or helpful.
On April 24, 2020, Strana.ua reports on a lawsuit filed by Liang Suguan, an attorney from Wuhan, against the US government, accusing it of deliberately disseminating misinformation on COVID-19. The lawyer believes that the US government is hiding the truth about a coronavirus outbreak in their country that happened earlier than in China. According to him, people infected with the virus in the United States were labeled as flu cases.
We will figure it out later, whether he was right or wrong.
On April 19, 2020, Deutsche Welle discusses an appeal by the German Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, Gerd Muller, to the Chinese leadership. Muller called on the PRC leadership to clarify on the circumstances of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus’ spread and the theory of the COVID-19 pathogen’s possible laboratory origin.
So, the question of its laboratory origin is already being discussed in Europe at the highest level. In China, in the US, in Europe, in India. Where else? Am I making something up? Take it and read it.
On the same day, April 19, 2020, Svobodnaya Pressa summarizes a position taken by Taiwanese and Australian researchers. These researchers, led by Wei-Lun Wang of Changhua National University of Education in Taiwan and collaborators from Murdoch University in Australia dropped a bomb of a report about how a significant mutation could threaten development of a vaccine for COVID-19. Whether this is true – time will tell. At the same time, the Chinese National Center for Biological Information reported 3,500 mutations in the coronavirus.
Of course, only subspecialists, not even regular practicing infectious disease specialists, can give an expert assessment of Wei-Lung Wang’s report. On the other hand, the information voiced by the South China Morning Post is worrying: “there is a possibility that the mutation (which changed the mechanism of infection) was caused by a technical error.”
In other words, the SARS-CoV-2 strain has found its way to laboratories around the world, and a large number of specialists are working on it now. Are there guarantees that one of them will not “make a mistake” due to which COVID-19 becomes even more deadly? And humanity will no longer face a quarantine, but something harder than this.
People are saying louder and louder that the world will be hit with a second and more terrible wave of the pandemic because of dangerous mutations.
JPMorgan Bank, in particular, spared no expense on forecasting how COVID-19 would spread. They apparently collected opinions from the best infectious disease specialists and virologists in the world, Svobodnaya Pressa notes. Morgan Stanley’s chief biotechnology analyst Matthew Harrison wrote in his note that the current recovery from this acute period in the outbreak is just the beginning and not the end and the path is going to be long.
I keep moving backward chronologically.
On April 16, 2020, Newsweek announces that Donald Trump had activated a plan to evacuate the White House and federal agencies located in Washington, DC. The plan would be implemented in case the epidemic critically affects the US capital and government. Most likely in the form civil unrest. The NCR unit (National Capital Region), which has the status of a “joint military task force” with a total number of up to 10.000 uniformed personnel, is already on full alert.
We will talk about all this in detail – what are these plans, where they came from, what they signify, and how they relate to the meaning of the game.
On April 14, 2020, The Washington Post informs its readers that two years before the current pandemic, U.S. Embassy officials in the PRC warned of inadequate safety at the lab in Wuhan. According to US journalists, as early as January 2018, the US Embassy in China sent a number of its diplomats to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The diplomats warned of inadequate security measures being taken at the institute, calling for closer scrutiny to this institution. According to US officials, “the lab’s work on bat coronaviruses and their potential human transmission represented a risk of a new SARS-like pandemic.”
In other words what did the US government already know about two years ago? About a natural virus or an artificial pathogen?
April 15, 2020 Bloomberg introduces data from the China’s National Health Commission. According to Chinese doctors, among the patients in whom the coronavirus was detected, but had no symptoms of infection, only one fifth developed symptoms later. This means that about 80% of those infected may not have been identified, since they have no reason be alarmed. But at the same time, they spread the infection.
What is the result? In official statistics used for calculating the case fatality rate fail to take up to 80% of those infected into account. For the fatality rate is the number of deaths divided by the number of infected cases, the percentage of deaths from the number of cases. If 80% are not detected, then what? This means that the CFR from COVID-19 could be exaggerated fivefold. And then what?
And here is another message that sets out in more detail the position of Luc Montagnier, who we already discussed, in greater detail. Who received, I emphasize again, the Nobel Prize in 2008 for the discovery of HIV.
On April 17, 2020, in an interview with CNews, Luc Montagnier steadily outlines the version of the artificial origin of COVID. “We came to the conclusion that there was a manipulation of this virus,” he says.
Montagnier notes that HIV segments were added to SARS-CoV-2. “It [the virus] is not of natural origin, it is the work of molecular biologists,” the virologist said. “For what purpose – it is unclear … My job is to present the facts, I do not blame anyone, I do not know who did it and why. Perhaps they wanted to produce an AIDS vaccine,” Montagnier suggested. However, in an interview with the site Pourquoi docteur, he said that “this virus came out of the Wuhan laboratory.”
So he is quite politically-oriented. Therefore, I’m not absolutizing his position in any way. I just want to say that he is a virologist, a Nobel laureate, a specialist on HIV, and he sees HIV there.
