Max Keiser just said the corona virus isn’t a Black Swan, it’s Bat Soup!
I think you’ve put your finger on the fulcrum of this event, the number don’t add up, dodgy or not, for this to be stabilized short of three months MINIMUM at which point China’s economy, and a large part of the world’s supply chain will lie in ruins. I heard someone make the analogy that 2019nCoV was actually attacking and exploiting a venerability in the global economy’s just-in-time immune/supply chain system.
The global economic fiat reserve currency edifice is a colossally flawed mono-culture immune strategy and nCoV is drawing a bead on it like a Russian Avangard hypersonic glide vehicle.
My gut intuition is twitching.
The Global Clusterf*Ck is like a plate spinning spectacle
Coronavirus: Three Truths
From Dr Chris Martenson
Chris Martenson is known more for his financial career and website, but he is Dr Chris Martenson who got his PhD from Duke in Pathology, he just choose to pursue a career in finance and economics instead of the medical field. He’s quite familiar with the issues of pathology.
And remember it’s Duke’s virology Institute that has the partnered branch in Wuhan.
Chris Martenson really tees off on MSM pushing the talking point of “downplaying the coronavirus threat, by trying to convince us that the standard flu is more dangerous…”
To shoot down that idea he posts:
CFR – CASE FATALITY RATE
Flu = 0.1%
nCoV = 3% or higher
RO SPREAD RATE TRANSMISSION EASE
Flu = 1.28
nCoV = 4.08
SERIOUS COMPLICATION RATE (ICU beds requirement needed, who needs hospital to survive)
Flu = <1%
nCoV = ~20%
Regular flu has less than 1% needing hospital attention
nCoV needs 20% to be in an ICU unit
The US has maybe 100,000 ICU beds, tops, and wait for it….., they are pretty much ALL taken at the moment with current patients.
So, which one do you think is more dangerous???
Coronavirus Continues Spreading Fast
This could be seen as a real honest to God Dr Strangelove act of war with the right PR optics
So I guess we have the chicken or the egg situation.
Did China release nCov from their Level 4 lab in Wuhan by negligence or by intention, a giant experiment like the US did to it’s citizens in the 60’s, 70’s and 80″s with biological agents.
Did the US release it in China to f*ck with the already precarious Chinese Potemkin economy which is balanced on a razor’s edge of fraudmand mirrors?
Creator Of US BioWeapons Act Says Coronavirus Is Biological Warfare Weapon
“n an explosive interview Dr. Francis Boyle, who drafted the Biological Weapons Act has given a detailed statement admitting that the 2019 Wuhan Coronavirus is an offensive Biological Warfare Weapon and that the World Health Organization (WHO) already knows about it….”
Because this coronavirus adventure has all the earmarkings of collapsing China’s Ponzi economy and the global ‘just-in-time’ supply chain, it’s the perfect coverup device/event for blaming instead of fake ‘growth’ ghost cities and rampant banking fraud. The U.S. can then say China brought down the global economy and hide the US’s own financial Rico racketeering Ponzi hide-the-canoli fluffernutter three card Monti lame excuse for an economy.
A Win-win for both corrupt tyrannies masquerading as free markets.
Enough to drive one batty
India To Probe Wuhan Institute Of Virology
An interesting article about US bio-weapons research spearheaded in part by DARPA funded Duke University which has a branch in Wuhan, what a shock.
Quite a long dense article, make a snack and a cup-o-joe.
The Corona Virus Hysteria: Was China Being Set Up?
In what seems like another life, I was once involved in building the Washington DC mass transit Metro system in the early 1970’s.
At the time, the full Metro design, which was later cut down to just half the size of the original plan, was the most expensive public works project in U.S. history. More than the Hoover Dam, etc…
It was suppose to relieve the nightmarish commute into DC from the growing suburban jungle surrounding The Swamp.
The Metro Authority had commissioned a psychological study ($200,000+ in 1970 dollars) to assess whether anyone in the commuter gulag pool would actually use the subway system we were about to build.
When polled, 85%+ of the proles said, “No, I’m not going to use the subway because anyone else will start using it, and then I can my car drive in with the lessened traffic load.”
Well, that was a problem.
Sure enough, when the Metro system finally got up and running a couple years later, the initial ridership was only 15% of the commuters.
So the Metro authority ordered that the DC traffic authority, unbenounced to the tax paying commuters, stop timing the traffic lights and do anything and everything possible to make the morning commute into DC as painful and slow as humanly conceivable.
The psychological study had reveals most commuters mental break point to abandoning their cars, was if it took more than 2 hours to travels the average 10 mile commute distance from the beltway to the city core. You can almost walk 10 miles in 2 hours.
The plan of screwing up the traffic lights etc.. over time worked great. Ridership jumped from 15% to 65% to eventually 80%.
Even diehard auto users have psychological limits of pain.
Eventually I was thinking of a graduate engineering degree in Mass Transit design, you know, for all the new Mass Transit systems the U.S. was going to then build, using DC as a template for national mass transit.
That was before a fateful meeting on Capital Hill in the Senate cafeteria that I attended with the top congressional staff members of leading Democratic Senators of the time. (All the Republican Senators of the day were very opposed to Mass Transit.)
I assumed I was in friendly company with thae Democratic staff heads so I had asked the chief of staff of a very prominent liberal Democratic Senator, are you,( i.e. the Congress), going to fund more mass transit systems for the rest of the country after this triumph of the DC Metro, I’m thinking of making a career out of it.
I was stunned and speechless at the time hearing his answer.
“Congress will never fund another Mass Transit System ever in this country because only Communists and Socialist use Mass Transit. Real Americans drive cars to work. Congress only funded the Metro for DC because the Soviets had such a good Subway in Moscow that it made DC look like a third world ‘shithole’ and we, the.S., had to ‘show them’ we could build a better mass transit system than them.”
That ended my career path of ever thinking the U.S. would embrace mass transit in my lifetime.
Here we are almost 50 years later and we still have a third world ‘shithole’ mass transit infrastructure.
Ironically the money will never be there for classic mass transit in the U.S.
Y’all are stuck with Uber and Lyft
Quite the choreographed dance move, as I thought from the start.
Pepe Escobar on Syria…
“It’s a quadruple win. The U.S. performs a face saving withdrawal, which Trump can sell as avoiding a conflict with NATO ally Turkey. Turkey has the guarantee – by the Russians – that the Syrian Army will be in control of the Turkish-Syrian border. Russia prevents a war escalation and keeps the Russia-Iran-Turkey peace process alive. And Syria will eventually regain control of the entire northeast.”
Like every magical act or cheap con, the current situation consists of the Pledge, the Turn and the Prestige. They are selling a POV and need slight of hand to keep the mark engaged, intrigued and ready to buy into the illusion.
Erdogan needs to ‘save face’.
Will he cut off his nose to spite his face?
He is a psychopath like most world leaders.
“Behind every great fortune there lies a great crime” Balzac
At this point in world devolution, “Behind every great ‘leader’ there lies a great crime”
None of them got to their positions of power without seriously breaking some eggs or braking some legs.
Like any situation, the New Middle East will seek it’s own equilibrum.
It does appear that the U.S. is not going to be dealt a hand at the new poker table.
The whole Kurd vs Turkey vs Syrian army dynamic Punch & Judy Show seems more and more choreographed for public consumption.
The Deal was cut awhile back, what where seeing played out is the Passion Play.
” Nothing is as it seems.”
I think Russia is now The Player in that region. The U.S. has little credibility left anywhere in the globe much less the Middle East.
The U.S. does nothing but lie, about everything under the sun.
Liar, liar, pants on fire.
The U.S. hasn’t conducted diplomacy anywhere in decades, it just threatens and bullies countries with it’s bloated corpulent military industrial complex.
That is not diplomacy.
The U.S has no infrastructure of diplomacy left, even in the State Department. All the real diplomats, having been pathologically over ruled for decades, left to pursue actual adult careers somewhere else.
Russia will simply tell Turkey to stop after Erdogan waves his dick around enough to save face.
Russia is calling the shots in the Middle East now , but with nuance and aplomb, something the U.S. brain trust could even spell, much less execute.
The U.S. military industrial complex is a sad joke. There was an article the other day about the first US soldier deployed to Afghanistan who was 18 years old, the same age as the illegal U.S. occupation/war of the country for the last 18 years. Pitiful. The whole of WWII, defeating Nazi Germany and Japan took about five years to finish.
Dmitry Orlov’s piece, “War Profiteers and the Demise of the US Military-Industrial Complex ”
sums it up.
The F-35 “Lard Bucket” extreme extra special Boondoogle ‘fighter’ is the poster child for the U.S. weapons development ‘Juggernaut’.
The Russian military has managed to develop superior weapons for about 1/10 of the cost.
Turkey can bomb US special force with impunity. The U.S. presents in Syria, in any capacity whatsoever, is also utterly and totally illegal in international law. So technically, the Turks didn’t bomb anyone, just ghosts
