U.S. government continues to hide full extent of Covid-19 contagion from general public

A patient arrived at Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare in Clinton Missouri by ambulance on July 10, 2019, a typically humid day in the Ozarks.

This is central Missouri — a place where one either raises cattle, works in a large manufacturing plant or clocks into a local retail store.

There are no details about this patient’s condition and there were no updates on the patient’s status after the transfer.

All that is known is that the patient was diagnosed with a “coronavirus.” The patient was so infectious that the community facility was forced to contact both the CDC and DHS.

The Weird History Of Babies In Advertising

It's no secret that babies are popular. As a species, we have about 258 of them every minute, so if we weren't designed to find their squishy little faces adorable enough to withstand their relentless screaming, the situation would get intolerable in approximately three seconds. Given this natural inclination, it's not surprising that once advertising hit its heyday in the 1800s, babies started cropping up faster than a Wiggles concert at Legoland.

Q-uarantine cover for .01% arrests? Or quarantine so Americans don’t compare 30,000-person Trump rallies versus 300-person Biden rallies to steal presidency with corporate media and unaccountable ‘voting’ machines? Or…?

March Madness is no more nor less madness than any other month in the Emperor’s New Clothes ongoing human condition to witness naked parading .01% empire without public demand for “leadership” arrests.

US .01% “leaders” in politics, money, corporate media/public education are criminally complicit in OBVIOUS CRIMES centered in war, poverty, and looting that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions.

An arrest is the lawful action to stop an apparent crime. One day, Americans will look back and wonder how such flagrant evil was allowed to operate so openly with so few of us demanding arrests. But that day of justice is not yet here, so we messengers continue our calls.

White House Removes Public Health Experts from Coronavirus Discussions

The White House held dozens of meetings about coronavirus response that excluded government experts because the discussions were unnecessarily classified over the objections of HHS Secretary Alex Azar, reports Reuters. Experts were not just barred from speaking openly about what we knew about the emerging pandemic. Apparently, they weren’t even allowed in the room.

“It is not normal to classify discussions about a response to a public health crisis,” an unnamed official from the Republican George W. Bush administration told the wire service. Yet this is President Trump’s approach to nearly every public health and environmental threat: find some way to exclude the experts, stop them from speaking publicly, and make decisions in a vacuum. The deliberate sidelining of public health experts and science leads to bad policy, and ultimately, to more sickness and death.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Will someone out there please tell me that this was a very bad, early April Fool's joke?!?


When you don't have even adequate expertise at the table, and because this virus is so new, it's really hard to predict its trajectory, with any degree of confidence, the end-losers are the American people; so again, why did this happen, please?!?

Was Coronavirus a Biowarfare Attack Against China?

I’ll throw my 2 cents in here. I have zero proof other than my gut feeling that this is a bioweapon. I do have 40 year of biodefense research experience behind me and worked at Fort Detrich on bacterial vaccines where I developed my own aerosol infection routes and developed multi-species models of pathogenesis to establish correlates of immunity. Because I was a one-stop shop doing everything including animal care, aerosol exposures, sample analysis, necropsy, and histopathology, etc. plus I had research programs in endemic areas studying the immunopathological response in human populations to establish immune correlates of protection for candidate vaccines all for the Biological Defense Research Program (BDRP).

Iraq Condemns US Airstrikes, Warns of Consequences

Iraqi President Barham Salih issued a statement Friday angrily condemning a flurry of US airstrikes, saying they amounted to repeated violations of Iraqi sovereignty and threatened to provoke dangerous consequences.

Salih added that the US attacks amount to a “dangerous and deliberate weakening of its abilities especially at a time when Iraq faces unprecedented challenges.” Indeed, that the president is the one making responses at all shows the position Iraq is in. Normally this would be the purview of the PM, but Iraq simply doesn’t have one. The PM-designate has resigned, and the acting PM also resigned in recent weeks.

The US attacks targeted Iraqi PMF militia Kataib Hezbollah, and US officials insist they were “terrorist bases” that were legitimate to hit. The PMF is part of the Iraqi government, despite the US sense that they can attack them with impunity.

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' ex-wife files for emergency custody of their kids because she fears they're in 'danger' after the Infowars boss' DWI bust

The ex-wife of Infowars boss Alex Jones has launched a fresh legal bid for custody of their children in the wake of his arrest for DWI, DailyMailTV can disclose.

Kelly Jones, 51, has been battling the conspiracy theorist over their children for more than six years and says she has now applied for an emergency order to get them handed over immediately.

Jones was arrested early on Tuesday morning by cops in Austin, Texas, who said he was driving under the influence of alcohol – a class B misdemeanor.

Infowars chief Jones, 45, has since claimed he was not 'legally drunk', had consumed a 'small amount of sake rice wine' at a Japanese restaurant and was 'caught in a Travis County dragnet'.

Troops in Afghanistan Have Coronavirus Symptoms but No Tests, Congressman Says

A lawmaker wants answers from the Pentagon about whether coronavirus tests are being sent to military bases worldwide after he said troops in Afghanistan based miles from a town where people have contracted COVID-19 are showing symptoms.

Several U.S. troops in Afghanistan are experiencing flu-like symptoms but have tested negative for influenza, according to Rep. Mark Pocan, a Wisconsin Democrat. Now, there are concerns the troops, who are 75 miles from Iran where the coronavirus is rampant, could have COVID-19, he said.

The troops have not yet been tested for the sometimes-deadly virus though, Pocan added. The congressman said he learned of the situation after one of the service members' families contacted his office.

The US Federal Reserve’s Baffling Response to the Coronavirus Explained

When the World Health Organization announced on February 24th that it was time to prepare for a global pandemic, the stock market plummeted. Over the following week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped by more than 3,500 points or over 10%. In an attempt to contain the damage, on March 3rd the Federal Reserve slashed the fed funds rate from 1.5% to 1.0%, in their first emergency rate move and biggest one-time cut since the 2008 financial crisis. But rather than reassuring investors, the move fueled another panic sell-off.

Exasperated commentators on CNBC wondered what the Fed was thinking. They said a half point rate cut would not stop the spread of the coronavirus or fix the broken Chinese supply chains that are driving US companies to the brink.

Gaza: Murdering Children for Sport

Ayman Mohyeldin was an Egyptian reporter for al-Jazeera English who had covered dozens of major events in the Middle East for many American and other networks. His reputation was enormous, and his reporting on the Israeli assault on Gaza was such a stellar journalistic performance that NBC “aggressively pursued him to leave Al Jazeera, paying him far more than the standard salary . . .” His new assignment for NBC was to cover Israel and Palestine, a task greatly assisted by his ability to speak Arabic and his intimate knowledge of the Middle East and its history.

But in July of 2014 Mohyeldin was abruptly removed from NBC by David Verdi, a top NBC executive, who ordered Mohyeldin to leave Gaza immediately. NBC attributed Mohyeldin’s removal to unspecified “security concerns”, but there was an additional factor at play. (1)

US Intel Agencies Played Unsettling Role in Classified and “9/11-like” Coronavirus Response Plan

As the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis comes to dominate headlines, little media attention has been given to the federal government’s decision to classify top-level meetings on domestic coronavirus response and lean heavily “behind the scenes” on U.S. intelligence and the Pentagon in planning for an allegedly imminent explosion of cases.

The classification of coronavirus planning meetings was first covered by Reuters, which noted that the decision to classify was “an unusual step that has restricted information and hampered the U.S. government’s response to the contagion.” Reuters further noted that the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Alex Azar, and his chief of staff had “resisted” the classification order, which was made in mid-January by the National Security Council (NSC), led by Robert O’Brien — a longtime friend and colleague of his predecessor John Bolton.

Washington Post hypes fake news on coronavirus ‘burial pits’ in Iran

The Washington Post has turned to publishing fake news about Iran’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, claiming that Iran has dug mass "burial pits" for victims of the disease and was covering the true number of deaths.

As countries across the world grapple with the COVID-19 outbreak, Iran’s struggle to contain the deadly disease has attracted more than usual attention from mainstream outlets in certain countries.

Despite numerous statements from World Health Organization officials praising Iran’s efforts against the outbreak, certain outlets have focused on erringly similar themes regarding Iran; that the country is in chaos, is mishandling the outbreak and that it’s “putting other countries at risk”.

As the new coronavirus spreads illness, death, and catastrophe around the world, virtually no economic sector has been spared from harm. Yet amid the mayhem from the global pandemic, one industry is not only surviving, it is profiting handsomely.

“Pharmaceutical companies view Covid-19 as a once-in-a-lifetime business opportunity,” said Gerald Posner, author of “Pharma: Greed, Lies, and the Poisoning of America.” The world needs pharmaceutical products, of course. For the new coronavirus outbreak, in particular, we need treatments and vaccines and, in the U.S., tests. Dozens of companies are now vying to make them.

“They’re all in that race,” said Posner, who described the potential payoffs for winning the race as huge. The global crisis “will potentially be a blockbuster for the industry in terms of sales and profits,” he said, adding that “the worse the pandemic gets, the higher their eventual profit.”

Trump cozies up to Big Pharma and the vaccine industry instead of promoting vitamin D, anti-viral herbs and spices

During a recent press conference, President Trump issued a plea to the pharmaceutical industry to speed up its efforts to unveil a new vaccine for the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19).

The Trump administration says that Big Pharma needs to pick up the pace in unleashing the next chemical laden jab for the latest worldwide crisis, emphasizing that having to wait up to 18 months for a coronavirus vaccine to gain approval is unacceptable.

Trump’s announcement came just 15 minutes before American ally Saudi Arabia announced its first known case of the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19), which is believed to have come from Iran via Bahrain.

As all of this is happening, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is considering the issuance of a possible emergency declaration in response to new evidence of community spread of the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) here in the United States.

The governors of Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, New York, Rhode Island and Washington have all activated components of their Army and Air National Guard. Guardsmen in California and Maryland are also expected to join their states’ efforts today.

“The National Guard is fully involved at the local, state, and federal level in the planning and execution of the nation’s response to COVID-19,” a National Guard Bureau spokesperson said in the release. “In times of emergency, the National Guard Bureau serves as a federal coordinating agency should a state require assistance from the National Guard of another state.”
