Yes... this Coronavirus thing is suspicious as can be and no doubt there is a real battle taking place off-camera. It is apparent that President Trump is frustrated and had better watch himself. They are trying as hard as hard can be to bring him down and THEY NEED TO. It is a matter of their survival Les Visible
A small percentage of the population said they thought it would be way more efficient for the economy if the government just didn't take the money in the first place. These people were shouted down as "libertarian conspiracy theorist wackos" and told to move to Somalia. -The Babylon Bee
Israel pummeled the besieged Gaza Strip on Saturday, its bombs targeting a number of locations in the Palestinian territory, which is struggling to deal with a deadly outbreak of coronavirus.
Warplanes fired missiles which struck areas north-west of Gaza City and east of the town of Jabalya. Artillery shells also hit a spot east of the city, causing damage to infrastructure. No injuries were reported.
The Israeli armed forces claimed that the aerial assault was a response for missiles being fired into the south of the country, the stock response used to justify such an attack.None of the Palestinian resistance factions claimed responsibility for the alleged rocket attack on Israel.
In a further operation, the Israeli navy opened fire on a Palestinian fisherman off the coast of Gaza City. The Palestinian fishing industry has suffered huge losses as fishermen are frequently targeted by Israeli gunboats and are denied access to the sea
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought out the best and the worst in our societies. The best can be seen in the armies of volunteers stepping up to help their neighbours. More than 700,000 people signed up to be NHS volunteers and many others across the country have set up local WhatsApp groups to discuss what needs to be done in their community. This is wonderful and inspiring. But there has been a dark side too and we can't ignore it. The curtain-twitching element has been emboldened by this crisis. Some seem to relish the opportunity to name, shame and harass anyone who deviates even slightly from the lockdown rules. This is the Covid-Stasi. Brendan O'Neill
There is a clear strong downward sloping trend in the number of deaths at all ages for the current year as compared to the previous 5 years. Moreover, the current year appears to be a break in trend from the previous 5 years. Comparing the difference of the previous 5 -year average with 2020 deaths through March 7 and we find that for week 10, there were close to 9000 fewer deaths – this is nearly a 20 percent decrease in the number of the deaths! The decrease is most evident after week 7 (week ending February 15 , 2020 ).
Weekly deaths in the US down by 7,000 - 10,000 for the week ending March 7 2020! Silver lining with people changing their behaviors during COVID-19? Raw weekly death numbers taken from @CDCgov: pic.twitter.com/Y7tzG5TSTU
Dr Sucharit Bhakdi : 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.
Dr Joel Kettner: I have never seen anything like this, anything anywhere near like this. 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... In Hubei, 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.
Dr John Ioannidis: The one situation where an entire, closed population was tested was the Diamond Princess cruise ship and its quarantine passengers. The case fatality rate there was 1.0%, but this was a largely elderly population, in which the death rate from Covid-19 is much higher.
Could the Covid-19 case fatality rate be that low? No, some say, pointing to the high rate in elderly people. However, even some so-called mild or common-cold-type coronaviruses that have been known for decades can have case fatality rates as high as 8% when they infect elderly people in nursing homes.
If we had not known about a new virus out there, and had not checked individuals with PCR tests, the number of total deaths due to “influenza-like illness” would not seem unusual this year. At most, we might have casually noted that flu this season seems to be a bit worse than average.
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.
We have reliable figures from Italy and a work by epidemiologists, which has been published in the renowned science journal ‹Science›, which examined the spread in China. This makes it clear that around 85 percent of all infections have occurred without anyone noticing the infection. 90 percent of the deceased patients are verifiably over 70 years old, 50 percent over 80 years.
In Italy, one in ten people diagnosed die, according to the findings of the Science publication, that is statistically one of every 1,000 people infected. Each individual case is tragic, but often – similar to the flu season – it affects people who are at the end of their lives.
If we close the schools, we will prevent the children from quickly becoming immune.
Dr Yanis Roussel et. al.: The problem of SARS-CoV-2 is probably overestimated, as 2.6 million people die of respiratory infections each year compared with less than 4000 deaths for SARS-CoV-2 at the time of writing.
I am deeply concerned that the social, economic and public health consequences of this near-total meltdown of normal life — schools and businesses closed, gatherings banned — will be long-lasting and calamitous, possibly graver than the direct toll of the virus itself. The stock market will bounce back in time, but many businesses never will. The unemployment, impoverishment and despair likely to result will be public health scourges of the first order.
– “Is Our Fight Against Coronavirus Worse Than the Disease?”, New York Times 20th March 2020
Consider the effect of shutting down offices, schools, transportation systems, restaurants, hotels, stores, theaters, concert halls, sporting events and other venues indefinitely and leaving all of their workers unemployed and on the public dole. The likely result would be not just a depression but a complete economic breakdown, with countless permanently lost jobs, long before a vaccine is ready or natural immunity takes hold.
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...
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!”

James H Kunstler: The cable news announced the other day that Covid-19 patients placed in critical care may have to be on ventilators for 21 days. Only a few years ago, I went in for an ordinary hip replacement. A month or so later, I got the hospital billing statement. One of the line-items went like this:Room and board: 36 hours...$23,482.79.I am not jiving you. That was just for the hospital bed and maybe four lousy hospital meals, not the surgery or the meds or anything else. All that was billed extra. Say, what...?
Now imagine you have the stupendous good fortune to survive a Covid-19 infection after 21 days on a ventilator and go home. What is that billing statement going to look like? Will the survivors wish they'd never made out of the hospital alive?
Ron: Tell me again why you think that growing old in the US is sooo superior to growing old in China or Cuba. Pray that President Trump and his supporters eliminate the Talmudic US health care system along with the Fed and the demonic global control cabal Pilgtims.
James H Kunstler: One thing will be pretty clear: Thatthe folks in charge of things gave trillions of dollars to Wall Street while tens or perhaps hundreds of thousands of Covid-19 survivors got wiped out financially with gargantuan medical bills.Do you think the Chargemaster part of the hospital routine will just stop doing its thing during this emergency? The billings will continue - just as the proverbial beatings will continue until morale improves! In the aftermath, I can't even imagine the ‘splainin' that will entail. The rage may be too intense to even get to that. For some, it may be time to lubricate the guillotines?
Ron: This author is far too pessimistic. President Trump and his supporters are on the brink of restornig God centred Republican governance to the US. Once the Covid-19 operation is completed the US will be freed from the Talmudic shackels of usurious banking and the corrupt US healthcare and government welfare systems. The US and the rest of our world will be free to begin building a glorious and prosperous future under the Millennial Reign of Christ Michael Aton, proclaimed on 5 february 2019. So be it.
James H Kunstler: :When Americans awake from the corona coma like millions of Rip Van Winkles, it will matter again to be upright and to act in good faith. This will be a different country.
Ron: In fact, when the Corvid-19 operation and the coming Magnetic Reversal and stasis is over, our whole world as well as the US will be transformed.
Ron Paul: The New York Fed claimed its intervention was a temporary measure,but it has not stopped pumping [Ron: electronic fiat] money into the repo market since September. Also, the Federal Reserve has been expanding its balance sheet since September. Investment advisor Michael Pento called the balance sheet expansion quantitative easing (QE) "on steroids."
Ron: In effect, the Fed is being forced to hold trillions of USD in bad debts.
Ron Paul:The Fed has also created three new loan facilities to provide hundreds of billions of dollars in credit to businesses.Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has stated that the Fed will lend out as much as it takes to revive the economy.
The Fed is also reducing interest rates to zero. We likely already have negative real interest rates because of inflation.Negative real interest rates are a tax on savings and thus lead to a lack of private funds available for investment, giving the Fed another excuse to expand its lending activities.
Ron: The Fed and the commercial banks it serves depend on charging interest (usury) on their so-called lending of fiat debt tokens. They have no other means of maintaining their parasitic existance. Once interest rates are at ZERO they lack an income as well as a reason to exist. Arguably the Fed and the commercial banks will cease to exist as such after the Covid-19 operation completes the elimination of the Talmudic global control cabal; and sovereign nations start to issue their own money instead of pretending to borrow it from banksters and paying them interest on it.
Ron Paul: ...by flooding the economy with new money, expanding asset purchases, and facilitating Congress and the president's spending sprees, the Fed is exacerbating America's long-term economic problems.
Ron: The Fed doesn't create money it only creates fiat debt tokens. The community via its governance arrangements is the monopolist creator of money for use by the community.Accordingly the Fed isn't facilitating a spending spree it is merely acting asan agent for the US government which is doing what any legitimate governing organ of the US nation must do, namely ensuring that all members of the national community are able to survive in a time of crisis and that manufacturing and other infrastructure vital to community welfare is preserved for use after the crisis is over.' That preservation is avoiding an existential problem. Calling it an economic problem misleads the debate.
Ron Paul: The Federal Reserve is unlikely to end these emergency measures after the government declares it is safe to resume normal life.Consumers, businesses, and (especially) the federal government are so addicted to low interest rates, quantitative easing, and other Federal Reserve interventions that any effort by the Fed to allow rates to rise or to stop creating new money will cause a severe recession.
Ron: I disagree. The alleged "addiction(s)" referred too, were created by the fraudulent Talmudic credit creation and usurious fractional reserve, global banking system organised and controlled by banksters. That system is a criminal PONZI scheme which the Trump Adminstration is eliminating and replacing with a US Treasury controlled usury free, real money creation and distribution system. The result will enable US and globalsocieties to flourish. Recessions and depressions resulted from corrupt governments granting EXCLUSIVE free licences to banksters to enable them to pretend to create and distribute money and to charge, and vary, interest on it, AT THEIR SOLE DISCRETION. As a result, the banksters routinely created recessions and depressions by alternatively flooding societies with too much fiat currency followed by limiting and even withdrawing some of that currency. Regulated issuance of real money and proper management of its distribution by legitimate, properly audited government authorities can eliminate entirely the 'boom bust' cycles used by banksters to control, enslave and impoverish the US and the global population.
Ron Paul:The silver lining is that this next crisis could finally demolish the Keynesian welfare-warfare state and the fiat money system.
Ron: I disagree. The welfare-warfare state and the global fiat money system is being demolished by the Trump Administration and the Covid-19 operation NOW. They will eliminate the fraudulent and hence unlawful debt bubbles created by the Rothschilds' organised global usurious central banking system and establish the basis for a global debt Jubilee.
Ron Paul: Audit the Fed is a step toward restoring health to our economic system by ending the fiat money pandemic that facilitates the welfare-warfare state and the unstable, debt-based economy.
Ron: Arguably President Trump has already forced the Fed to reduce interest rates to ZERO and to begin buying up trillions of USD denominated debt. That process is already eliminatng the debt unlawfully inflicted upon the US nation and its citizens.
According to the CDC, 97 precious lives have been lost (as of 03/19/20) to COVID-19. There have been 9,045 confirmed infections in the United States since January. Since October, however, between 22,000 and 55,000 Americans have lost their lives to another pandemic-the flu. Why aren't people challenging everyone to be so "pro-life" over these tragic losses of life?
More than 32,000 people are killed in automobile accidents in the U.S. every year, with another 2 million who suffer injuries. Does the government ban use of all cars? This is the equivalent of the coronavirus response. - Ryan Scott Bomberger
Cnaan Liphshiz: JTA - Nearly 5% of all coronavirus-related deaths in the United Kingdom are of Jewish people, who make up just 0.3% of the country's population, the Jewish News of London reported.
Ron: That death rate is well over 16 times higher than the death rate for the myriad gentile ethnic groups in Britain.
Cnaan Liphshiz: Jewish community leaders in Antwerp, Belgium, last week predicted a significantly higher infection rate of 85% in their congregation than the 50-70% rate that scientists expect to find in the general population.The leaders cited the large social circles and interaction of the Jewish community.
Ron: You Betcha! However, as I understand it, increasing susceptability to disease and death, especially related to lung problems, is due to increasing gamma radiation impacting this planet from the centre of the galaxy and elsewhere. Apparently gamma radiation affects human DNA, upgrading spiritually positive individuals but having a reverse effect upon spiritually negative individuals.
Cnaan Liphshiz: At least two rabbis of died of the disease: Yehuda Yaakov Refson, a senior rabbi in Leeds, was 73 when he died Sunday, and Zeev Willy Stern, a Holocaust survivor, was 86 when he died over the weekend.
While Europeans and Arabs are being absorbed by the coronavirus, Anglo-Saxons are changing the world order. Under US command, the United Kingdom took control of the Red Sea entrance; the United Arab Emirates turned on Saudi Arabia and inflicted a bitter defeat on South Yemen, while the Houthis did the same in North Yemen. Yemen is now split into two separate states and the territorial integrity of Saudi Arabia is threatened. Thierry Meyssan
The Dark Man:It is generally accepted that something is physically possible only if it is financially possible.
Ron: I disagree. Finance isn't even money, it is a figment of the imagination of banksters and borrowers. It isn't even real money. In any event, even money cannot do anything, only living creatures can do things. Something is physically possible if and only if, physical resources are available upon which human will and energy are able to operate to produce a desired result. Finance is merely an idea, a fiction only given significanceby human belief in it.IF humans cease believing in 'finance' or money they need not stop producing ideas and things.
The Dark Man:This may be true for individuals and corporations, and indeed for governments subject to one big and two smaller exceptions. These are war, large scale disasters, and crime.
Ron: This is Talmudic propaganda. Money is a demonic concept used to enslave human minds and hence their bodies.
The Dark Man:Although it is called Federal, the Creature from Jekyll Island is a de facto private corporation along with all the other central banks of the world.With the very small exceptions of the coin and note issues, and the still nascent digital currencies like Bitcoin, central banks have what the great Major Douglas called the monopoly of credit.The Trump Administration is in effect bypassing the Federal Reserve at present, which means in future it will not be needed and can be abolished. The power to create credit for the United States Government should be vested in Congress so it can print its money debt-free. Of course, if governments could simply print money during a crisis, poverty would have been abolished before any of us was born, but no one should be intimidated by that old canard about hyperinflation. Inflation is caused by too much money chasing too few goods. Do you know anyone who claims to have too much money?...The Trump Administration and governments worldwide need to take steps to separate capitalism from finance, to make finance the servant of the people in the same way as is the free market. The very first step in this process is to strip the banks of their power to create money out of thin air. It will be interesting to see how many people who profess socialism support this proposition, and how many, undoubtedly a far greater number, who oppose it.
Ron: The Trump Administration is currently bypassing the Federal Reserve and integrating its functions into the US Treasury. It is doing that because Capitalism is a Talmudic creation that is essentially a Fascist mechanism for the mental and physical enslavement, control and exploitation of most people on this planet. (1) Capitalism is an ideology built on the money meme. The money meme is the core of the problem in that it is used to mind control people into developing mental attitudes that breed seperation, alienation, isolation and aggression. Capitalism has developed those traits to an excessive degree but the problem is initially based on reifying the idea of money so that it has that idea, a figment of the human imagination, ostensibly used to facilitate the exchange of goods and services, but now actually used to mentally and physically enslave people.
That idea has bred a whole lexicon of other ideas used to further the mental and physical enslavement of human persons. One of those obfuscatory manipulative ideas is "finance" which is just a misleading expression for fiat money. Both expressions are completely divorced from reality. Reality is created by human thoughts and actions that manifest results in physicality. Finance is not money it is merely an idea about money. Finance is a manipulative word used to give credence to the lie that fiat debt tokens are money when they are not. Originally money was a real, tangible thing that humans agreed had real worth. For instance gold and silver coins had physical substance and were exchanged for physical goods and services. Coins had to be made of metal that had to be mined and shaped into coins or other objects that could then be exchanged for other goods or sevices in a sophisticated barter arrangement. Gradually that tangible physical quality and value was attenuated as the metal content in coins was diluted and people relied upon its supposed value declared by governing authorities
Over time banksters realised that they could give people notes declaring that a specified amount gold or silver or coins of a specified value were being held which could be exchanged for the notes. The banksters then started to provide multiple notes for each coin or gold or silver bar they held in their vaults. Eventually banksters started to issue notes with a face values nine time greater than the physical assets they held. And today under the fractional reserve banking system banksters typically issue fiat debt tokens fraudulently called money that exceed the actual physical assets they hold by a factor of nine times and even more.
This means that "finance" provided by banks is an unreal figment of imagination conjured out of thin air by banksters with the tacit but ignorant consent of borrowers who pay interest (usury) to the banksters for that "finance". Arguably then, "finance" is a LIE upon which modern capitalism is based. In truth human life and human creations are entirely possible without 'finance' or even physical money. The 'finance' illusion exists because humans on this planet are generally delusional.
Michael Marder: When speaking about the current coronavirus pandemic and a concerted response to it, we should say unequivocally: "This is not a war."It's true that this will directly contradict the stance of many world leaders, who have declared a war on the virus.
Michael Marder: Modern western medicine is prone to indulge in militaristically inflected discourses and actions. We say that someone "fights an illness," that the deceased has "lost a battle" with a lethal affliction, that tumors may be "aggressive" and that, therefore, they should be "aggressively attacked" with chemotherapy. This way of conceptualizing and practicing medicine lends itself easily to a "war on the virus."
Ron: This violent and aggressive terminology is a Talmudic gloss that has enveloped all of global society on this planet, nit just medical jargon. This weaponising of language is deliberate and meant to frighten, intimidate and manipulate people into embracing a false anti-Christian and anti-human mind set.
Michael Marder: Terrifying and tragic as it is, the coronavirus pandemic presents a unique opportunity - to rebuild a sense of common good, and breathe new meaning into it, grounded on experience.
Ron: The Coronavirus isn't a pandemic and the fact that vested interests in the WHO, the allopathic health profession and the MSM say it is, doesn’t make it so.
Michael Marder:That is not to mention the enormous risks that medical personnel take in treating people who have contracted the virus.
Ron: Arguably the risks medical personnel are taking are no greater than the risks generally taken in treating patients suffering from flu or other diseases.]
Michael Marder:Combined with some government actions, such as abolishing the difference between public and private healthcare systems, these experiences may reinvigorate the notion of the common good.
Ron: Arguably what is required is elimination of the Talmudic cabal running this planet and the removal of their usurious banking and fractional reserve banking control mechanisms.Those are the main reasons why humanity on this planet isn't actively pirsuing the common good of everyinhabitant on this planet and the planet herself.
T.S. Weidler: If people will not choose to humble themselves before God, then he will do it for them. The knees will bend, whether voluntarily or involuntarily.
Ron: I disagree. God doesn't humble us, we humble ourselves through our ego centricities, false judgments and inappropriate thoughts and actions.
T.S. Weidler: In our church we spent January and February focused on our direction. We centered on the Biblical principle of consecration. Consecration is Lent. It is giving up everything for a period of time and dedicating it to God. Anything that gets in the way needs to be purged. Any direction that leads to the wrong destination needs to be changed.
Ron: Seeking to follow the message of Christ Jesus 'to love neighbour AS self FOR the love of God' is a full time commitment, not something you do for "Lent"
T.S. Weidler: Biblically speaking, consecration is always followed by powerful acts of God. In the book of Exodus, God's people consecrate themselves and a few days later they meet God at Mt. Sinai. In the book of Joshua they consecrate themselves before crossing the Jordan River into the land of Israel.
It should not be forgotten that the Soviet Union was the first state to recognize the People's Republic of China. It was Moscow that helped lay the foundations to build Chinese industry, and although China is now unparalleled, none of this would have been possible without those foundations. By allowing the Chinese company Huawei to build Russia's first 5G network, Moscow provided Beijing with the support it desperately needed as the trade war with the United States escalated. Vladimir Odintsov
More good news is seeing commercials for Christian programming during secular TV shows. The Bible tells Christians to be salt. Salt makes a difference. I have criticized churches for behaving in a cowardly manner, not adding salt to our culture. During the corona crisis, more and more pastors are speaking out about how our culture has gone down the wrong road. It is funny how trouble always brings us back to God and on our knees. Lloyd Marcus
Shawgi Tell: Stubborn problems like poverty, unemployment, and inequality will be overcome because the human factor and social consciousness will be deployed to swiftly end such decades-long problems. Such problems will no longer be treated as "too big to solve."
Ron: The core of the problem is the demonic global money creation and usurious fractional reserve banking system that is controlled by the 'one percent of the one percent' of wealth holders. THAT system is currently being dismantled by the Triodity led by President Trump who has just commenced folding the operations of the Federal Reserve System into the US Treasury. Once that is done the US and all sovereign national governments around our world will start issuing interest (usury) free money. This will remove parasitic banksters from the global monetary system and enable all governments to cease the unlawful levying if income taxes.
The result will be a rapid tise in prosperity and abundance and the elimination of poverty everywhere. To round out the restructuring of human society, governing authorities in each sovereign nation will need to ensure that monopolies do not develop in relation to the supply of goods and services and that large suppliers of goods and/or services do not price gouge or provide shoddy goods and services. Carefully audited efforts must also be made to ensure that ALL profits made by corporations or cooperatives are equitably distributed to workers; and excessive profits, if any, are fully taxed for the benefit of the whole community.
Jeffrey T Brown: Illegal aliens who came here to prey upon our society, but who leftists believe will eventually be voting dependents, are innocent victims who must be protected. We are told they have the "spark of divinity."
Ron: Actually not every featherless biped on this planet "has a spark of divinity". About half of the global population are unensouled; ie they are not indwelt by a fragment of Creator consciousness. By their fruits you will often know them,
