“Third Wave” Of COVID-19 Propaganda Continues & Ramps Up

The mainstream media would like for you to believe that the “third wave” is here and we should all be cowering under our beds afraid of the “invisible enemy.” The new “third wave” supposedly saw an increase in 60,598 cases yesterday in the United States.

Based on the current U.S. population and how many have allegedly already been infected, that isn’t really all that many. As of Wednesday afternoon, there have been over 8,316,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the U.S. and at least 220,900 have died (if you believe these phony jacked-up numbers and PCR tests which are not supposed to be used as diagnostic tools), according to The New York Times database. The country is inching closer and closer to its July peak (75,687 cases), with a nationwide average of 60,160 cases per day, a 36 percent increase from the average two weeks earlier.

According to the Bulgarian Pathology Association, the PCR tests, which are being used to detect COVID-19 ar “scientifically useless.” So, therefore, so should all of this fear-mongering data thrown at us 24/7.  But the facts aren’t getting in the way of the mainstream media’s fear campaign.

Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin are all reporting increasingly high rates of new infections, with healthcare workers saying that hospitals are “bursting at the seams” with new COVID patients.

North Dakota now has the most cases of coronavirus per capita in the country, according to the Times. It reported more than 1,000 cases on Tuesday, the state’s worst daily total yet. –People

That’s strange. When have we heard of overflowing hospitals before? Oh, that’s right, when the MSM was justifying the destruction of the middle class:

New York’s COVID-19 Field Hospital Dismantled After Treating ZERO Patients

Army’s Seattle Field Hospital Closed After 3 Days & Without Seeing A Single Patient

It’s mind-blowing how many people are still buying this.

Last week, Wisconsin health officials had to open up a field hospital at the state fairgrounds near Milwaukee to help treat the surge in COVID-19 patients in the state.

“We hoped this day wouldn’t come, but unfortunately, Wisconsin is in a much different, more dire place today and our healthcare systems are beginning to become overwhelmed by the surge of COVID-19 cases,” Governor Tony Evers said in a statement. “This alternative care facility will take some of the pressure off our healthcare facilities while expanding the continuum of care for folks who have COVID-19.” –People

They will ride this scamdemic until they can’t get away with it anymore.  And it looks like people aren’t waking up to what’s really going on, so brace yourselves.  The predictive programming is here and we were already promised the “darkest winter” and a chaotic election.

Business buying now buying the dips Cloud Company CRISIS deep recession demand election equities experts Fear Forecasting health facilities healthy hospitals Intelwars markets Opinions pandemic panic recovery Stock Market Vaccine

PANDEMIC PANIC: 2nd Wave Climax – FED CRIPPLED!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of the Wealth Research Group. 

What NO ONE expects is a deep recession; there are a number of CONFLICTING THEORIES as to what the recovery will look like, but nothing about entering a recession. The consensus is that the pandemic is highly contagious, but not lethal; “with a vaccine coming and FEAR LEVELS subsiding, a recovery has begun,” is the general idea.

Where OPINIONS DIFFER is about its strength and inclusiveness of the recovery:

  1. Dichotomy – This is the thesis that claims BIG BUSINESS is eating up SMALL BUSINESS, so the recovery is HAPPENING, but it isn’t a healthy one. We’ll see GDP printing better stats with each PASSING QUARTER, but poverty is increasing, since BIG gets BIGGER and small gets TINY.
  2. Vaccine-Dependent – This camp believes that the PENT-UP DEMAND will be unleashed, once first-responders agree to take the vaccine. That stamp of approval will LEAD to CONFIDENCE worldwide; I want to show you how much DISTRUST THERE IS in the value stocks, which are companies that dominate their industries but are growing slowly and predictably, not fast and sporadically.

The market believes that each company that isn’t on the cloud is going out of business, which has led to a bubble:

You should consider THE FACTS about the pandemic before I move on to the THIRD CAMP, which are the investors who believe in the “V”-shaped or quick “U”-shaped recovery. They’re BUYING DIPS, as I am right now, following our FOUR WATCH LISTS: 1, 2, 3, and TECH.

The MOST IMPORTANT fact is that the PANDEMIC ITSELF isn’t lethal; the real crisis is overwhelmed hospitals and insufficient medical staff.

While no one likes to see CROWDED HEALTH FACILITIES, if those do return, this would be nowhere near the panic levels of March, when healthy people feared FOR THEIR LIVES.

Therefore, to expect markets to price in MARCH LOWS is a bit of a stretch of the imagination.

Instead, be agile in your thinking; there are REAL BARGAINS out there. Flexibility is needed, though. Don’t wait for sellers to hand you once-in-a-generation prices for the second time in six months.

As you can see, tight presidential races WEIGH ON PRICES, since it’s a huge unknown factor, especially when the parties are THIS POLARIZED on policy and public ideas.

It’s a tale of two Americas with two opposite agendas.

Where does gold come into the picture?

  1. Slow “V” or Fast “U” – Those who are FREE-MARKET oriented understand that businesses have muscled through the ROUGH PATCH and that capitalistic forces are driving innovation in this post-COVID-19 reality.

Wall Street and institutional money will be ENTERING EQUITIES on this severe dip and you ought to know that BUYING NOW is playing with fire, but I am certainly am.

Gold stocks have also reached their MOMENT OF TRUTH:

They MUST PENETRATE below the average of 2.5; that will signal a MULTI-YEAR TREND, which will confirm the bull market. The fact that Kinross and Newmont, among other large-cap miners, are RAISING DIVIDENDS, is a healthy sign of confidence from the most reputable management teams out there.

The September dip has allowed us to find companies with GREAT SUPPORT and I’m going to present new stock profiles, since, as the chart above shows, we’re ON THE CUSP of the REAL MOVE.

Gold might sell in this panic even further, but that’s not the REAL TREND; think ahead by 6-12 months and you’ll realize that inflation is accelerating!

COLD SWEAT: Millennials Eating S**t – STOCKS SMASHED!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of The Wealth Research Group. 

I’m currently in Tel Aviv, where the government has just approved a SECOND LOCKDOWN, more flexible than the one in March/April but still EXTREMELY PAINFUL for businesses (which are forced to shut down again), families (which are now tasked with parenting their children 24/7), the NATIONAL DEBT, which is reaching new highs not seen in decades, and for morale and spirit of individuals, who have seen the COVID-19 virus impact A TINY NUMBER of people compared with the comprehensive response the government is imposing — this is the REAL ISSUE here — the tradeoff between not overwhelming hospitals (which are short of staff and on beds) and halting the lives of the millions, who will not impact statistics, since they’re not at risk.

September is not March or April when the initial shock JUSTIFIED or WAS MORE IN LINE with the quarantines that were enacted around the globe in the eyes of many.

Today, we know MUCH MORE about this disease: it is highly contagious, but not nearly as lethal as previous coronaviruses, such as MERS, Ebola, and SARS.

Because of this, herd immunity is TOTALLY DOABLE while the weakened populations (elderly, diabetic, and obese, for example) remain under PROTECTIVE MEASURES if they elect to.

The fact that CORRUPT POLITICS is paving the way to solutions in many countries is problematic and UNCALLED FOR.

This amazing chart shows SO VIVIDLY the magnitude of the MARCH PANIC.

The world utterly froze and central banks did what no other institution on the planet can do, and that is to use their MAGIC WAND to create endless liquidity and restore needed confidence.

It worked; the global economic machine realized the END of the WORLD isn’t coming.

No one can TAKE AWAY what they accomplished in March, but their actions have second- and third-level consequences that are UNINTENDED but end up being even more meaningful than the response itself.

For example, their liquidity buffer created the Robinhood app bubble phenomenon.

Look at the chart ABOVE again and you’ll see the amount of cash that is returning to equities is still FAR SMALLER than what exited in March.

We believe this SEPTEMBER CORRECTION we’re going through is really good because it points long-term investors to the support levels for stocks, now that millennials understand that there are TWO SIDES to the market coin.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

The dollar is clearly weakening, but it has found support at these levels. It could even strengthen a bit, but we believe there’s still a 5%-10% DOWNWARD SPIRAL coming in the 3-6 months ahead of us.

Gold could really jump above $2,000/ounce by the end of the year, along with silver hitting $30.

Right now, though, one has a chance of BUYING TECH at a discount compared with the last two months.

We’ve worked LONG AND HARD on the new TECH WATCH LIST, which you can access HERE.

Many investors have HATED TECH for years, thinking it was a bubble, but that’s not the case.

The world’s fastest-growing businesses are in the fields that include high-tech.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Because real interest rates are STILL NEGATIVE, stocks and precious metals, along with real estate, have a real catalyst to keep GOING UP.

The NASDAQ is down -12% in September.

We’re not in the habit of STAYING INDIFFERENT to discounts.

Think TECH, think gold, think negative rates, and election madness!

Billie Jean King Coronavirus CORRUPTION COVID-19 Emergency Preparedness empire has fallen empty hospital face masks facilities Federal Reserve Flatten the curve Headline News hospitals Intelwars LIES money muzzles New York City offical narrative plandemic propaganda scamdemic spending United States USSA Vaccine wasting workers paid to do nothing

Corruption At All Levels: A $52 Million COVID-19 Hospital Treated 79 Patients

New York City spent $52 million on a hospital for patients with the coronavirus. The hospital treated only 79 patients and say unused even as nearby hospitals were overwhelmed with coronavirus patients.

According to a report Tuesday by The New York Times, the temporary hospital set up at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center treated just 79 patients in the month it was in operation, while staff reported being paid to do nothing all day amid the height of the city’s coronavirus outbreak. “I basically got paid $2,000 a day to sit on my phone and look at Facebook,” Katie Capano, a nurse practitioner from Baltimore who worked at the center, told the Times. “We all felt guilty. I felt really ashamed, to be honest.”

While regular Americans were forced to give up their livelihoods, destroy their ability to provide for themselves and their families and be on house arrest for months, others got paid to do nothing just to push the coronavirus plandemic propaganda and official narrative. This is corruption and it’s at all levels of the government of the USSA.

Red tape and poor communication between city, state, and federal officials led to the field hospital as well as the Navy’s deployed hospital ship, the USNS Comfort, sitting largely empty while public hospitals in the city reported crowded conditions and overwhelmed staff. Workers at the Billie Jean King facility who spoke to the Times confirmed that they largely spent their time completing repetitive paperwork.

“The conditions in the emergency room during this crisis were unacceptable and dangerous,” Timothy Tan, director of clinical operations at Queens Hospital Center’s emergency department, told the Times. “Knowing what our patients had to endure in an overcrowded emergency department, it’s frustrating how few patients were treated at facilities such as Billie Jean King.” –The Hill

New York’s COVID-19 Field Hospital Dismantled After Treating ZERO Patients

Trump Pushes Mask Wearing Propaganda: It’s “Patriotic”

The constant pushing of the coronavirus narrative in spite of facts or any real evidence should be alarming to everyone.  Many people know something is wrong even if they can’t pinpoint what it is, and yet, we still have the mainstream media trying to panic the public into wearing the muzzle face mask and living in fear.

This is probably not going to stop until everyone agrees to get the vaccine. And if you don’t get the “non-mandatory” vaccine, those in power will make sure your life is inconvenient as possible (no going to the grocery store or traveling) unless you have it.

big secret control COVID-19 distraction elitists Emergency Preparedness enslavement face mask Fear Government Headline News hospitals Intelwars Jay Inslee LIES mandatory misdemeanor New World Order order following sheep pandemic panic population propaganda Push scamdemic Second wave system fails Tests Washington

Washington State Gov. Makes NOT Wearing A Mask A Misdemeanor Crime

In the state of Washington, it is now a crime to not wear a face mask. As the mainstream media continues to ramp up the fears of a fake “second wave,” Governor Jay Inslee makes face masks mandatory as the state “sees a surge in COVID-19 cases and a shortage of hospital beds.”

But does anyone remember this?

Army’s Seattle Field Hospital Closed After 3 Days & Without Seeing A Single Patient

People already proved the first round of COVID-19 was a scam and the tests are giving a more than 60% false-positive rate (likely testing for some DNA signature in all coronaviruses). In a study of the test’s performance done in a cohort of 397 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 128 uninfected patients, the test showed a sensitivity of 89 percent and specificity of 91 percent.

At those performance levels, and assuming a COVID-19 prevalence in the tested population of 15 percent, the test would have a positive predictive value (PPV) of around 60 percent, meaning that around 60 percent of patients testing positive would actually be true positives. Drop the disease prevalence to 10 percent and the PPV falls to around 50 percent. At 5 percent prevalence, PPV could fall into the 30 percent range –360 DX

The forced mask-wearing is nothing more than yet another attempt to gin up fear. Inslee said during a news conference that the rule, which goes into effect Friday, requires masks in indoor settings, as well as outdoor settings if social distance rules cannot be maintained.

In other words, if you haven’t panicked to the point you’ll allow the government to inject whatever untested toxic vaccine into you and your children, you are the target.  They are going to do everything they can to make sure you lower your vibration to that fear level so they can maintain ultimate control. There’s plenty of scared sheep lining up to take the vaccine, but they need everyone to get it.

If you violate the new rule, you’ll be met with government force and violence in the form of a misdemeanor crime. Inslee’s statement is complete with total and utter propaganda designed to play on the gullible too:

“I think of these face coverings, in some sense, as a statement,” Inslee said. “It’s a statement that when you wear it, it means you care about people because it means you want to reduce the risk that you are going to infect another person.”

“Second Wave” Panic Explodes: Facemasks Become Signs of Those Living In Fear

Inslee said he’s also planning to sign a proclamation that requires businesses in Yakima County to enforce the face-covering rule. If businesses don’t comply, they will not be allowed to continue their operations.

They (the ruling class and elitists) are literally going to push as much and as hard as they can to get compliance. The most freeing feeling is that of knowing what they are doing and choosing to live freely anyway. The face masks mandate is more likely than not a distraction. Look for what they are doing behind the scenes. This is going to get more interesting.

Remember, the big secret they don’t want you to know is that they need us or their entire system fails. We do not need them.

Anger anthony fauci authoritarians breadlines Coronavirus cure is worse than the disease Depression economic crash executive order Federal Reserve freedom Headline News hospitals Intelwars Kristi noem liberty order followers outbreak power Protests scamdemic south dakota SWEDEN tyranny unemployment

What If the Lockdown Was All A Big Mistake?

This article was originally published by Ron Paul at The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. 

From California to New Jersey, Americans are protesting in the streets. They are demanding an end to house arrest orders given by government officials over a virus outbreak that even according to the latest US government numbers will claim fewer lives than the seasonal flu outbreak of 2017-2018.

Across the US, millions of businesses have been shut down by “executive order” and the unemployment rate has skyrocketed to levels not seen since the Great Depression. Americans, who have seen their real wages decline thanks to Federal Reserve monetary malpractice, are finding themselves thrust into poverty and standing in breadlines. It is like a horror movie, but it’s real.

Last week the UN Secretary-General warned that a global recession resulting from the worldwide coronavirus lockdown could cause “hundreds of thousands of additional child deaths per year.” As of this writing, less than 170,000 have been reported to have died from the coronavirus worldwide.

Many Americans have also died this past month because they were not able to get the medical care they needed. Cancer treatments have been indefinitely postponed. Life-saving surgeries have been put off to make room for coronavirus cases. Meanwhile, hospitals are laying off thousands because the expected coronavirus cases have not come and the hospitals are partially empty.

What if the “cure” is worse than the disease?

Countries like Sweden that did not lock down their economy and place the population under house arrest are faring no worse than countries that did. Sweden’s deaths-per-million from coronavirus is lower than in many lockdown countries.

Likewise, US states that did not arrest citizens for merely walking on the beach are not doing worse than those that did. South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem said last week, “we’ve been able to keep our businesses open and allow people to take on some personal responsibility.” South Dakota has recorded a total of seven coronavirus deaths.

Kentucky, a strict lockdown state, is five times more populated than South Dakota, yet it has some 20 times more coronavirus deaths. If lockdown and house arrest are the answer, shouldn’t those numbers be reversed, with South Dakota seeing mass death while Kentucky dodges the coronavirus bullet?

When Anthony Fauci first warned that two million would die, there was a race among federal, state, and local officials to see who could rip up the Constitution fastest. Then Fauci told us if we do what he says only a quarter of a million would die. They locked America down even harder. Then, with little more than a shrug of the shoulders, they announced that a maximum of 60,000 would die, but maybe less. That is certainly terrible, but it’s just a high-average flu season.

Imagine if we had used even a fraction of the resources spent to lock down the entire population and focused on providing assistance and protection to the most vulnerable – the elderly and those with serious medical conditions. We could have protected these people and still had an economy to go back to when the virus had run its course. And it wouldn’t have cost us six trillion dollars either.

Governments have no right or authority to tell us what business or other activity is “essential.” Only in totalitarian states does the government claim this authority. We should encourage all those who are standing up peacefully and demanding an accounting from their elected leaders. They should not be able to get away with this.

The ruling class and elitists of the planet are lying to our faces! Even by their own numbers, this COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t qualify for the massive response.  Hospitals have now exposed that the government is paying them more to put patients on ventilators, whether they need it or not.

This has become a controlling scam-demic.  Anyone with the smallest ability to read even mainstream media’s reports of the statistics should have known that the powers that shouldn’t be are trying their hardest to induce fear to take ultimate control over our lives. Several doctors have spoken up about how the government demanded they bump up the number of deaths by mislabeling death certificates, and more continue to speak out.

BOMBSHELL: MN Senator Reveals HHS “Coaching Document” On How To OVERCOUNT Coronavirus Cases

Another COVID-19 Whistleblower: A Montana Dr. Says Government Is Drastically Overstating Deaths

Dr. Scott Jensen was one of the first to speak out. In addition to saying the government is encouraging hospitals to record all deaths as COVID-19 deaths, he says they are also paying hospitals to overexaggerate the entire outbreak.

“Right now Medicare is determining that if you have a COVID-19 admission to the hospital you get $13,000. If that COVID-19 patient goes on a ventilator you get $39,000, three times as much. Nobody can tell me after 35 years in the world of medicine that sometimes those kinds of things impact on what we do.”

This is absolutely bone-chilling.

This lockdown is not in the best interests of anyone other than those issuing the orders. On a positive note, the lockdown will end when the public finally stands up and says “no. We will not obey your orders for us to lose everything.”

While people can debate the statistics all day, the truth is in the government’s reaction. Now that we all know they are lying and they put most of humanity on house arrest for weeks and forced millions into poverty, we have the power to stand up and end the lockdown on our own. It’s time.

It’s Time To Push Back Against The Draconian Lockdowns And Tyranny

They Don’t Want You to Know the Truth Or Be Exposed To Differing Opinions

The politicians that locked us up as prisoners need to know that they don’t have the power to remove our livelihoods.  They need to know they have no power because we won’t obey their commands any longer.  Never in the history of humanity has there been such a disastrous reaction by governments over a simple viral outbreak. We are living under the oppressive boot of tyranny and it won’t end until we all say “enough” and return to our lives.

Epidemiologist: Coronavirus Could Be “EXTERMINATED” If Lockdowns Are Lifted

Finally, we have begun to hear solutions that don’t require the government to enslave the population and people to give up their basic human rights in order to fight COVID-19.  One epidemiologist has now said that if we want to “exterminate” the coronavirus, lockdowns will need to be lifted immediately.

Knut Wittkowski, previously the longtime head of the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design at the Rockefeller University in New York City, said in an interview with the Press and the Public Project that the coronavirus could be “exterminated” people were allowed to lead normal lives, free from the shackles of house arrest politicians have placed on them. We need to shelter only the most vulnerable parts of society until the danger had passed, not lockdown everyone.

When asked about Anthony Fauci, the White House “medical expert” who for weeks has been propagating fear in the public and predicting significant numbers of COVID-19 deaths in America as well as major ongoing disruptions to daily life possibly for years, Wittkowski replied: “Well, I’m not paid by the government, so I’m entitled to actually do science.”

The veteran scholar of epidemiology has warned that the ongoing lockdowns throughout the United States and the rest of the world are almost certainly just prolonging the coronavirus outbreak rather than doing anything to truly mitigate it. On top of that, the government has destroyed the most financially vulnerable people by prohibiting them from making a living.  “Going outdoors is what stops every respiratory disease,” Wittkowski said.

And he isn’t the only doctor who says people need to go outside to get their vitamin D in order to fight off the virus. “[W]hat people are trying to do is flatten the curve. I don’t really know why. But, what happens is if you flatten the curve, you also prolong, to widen it, and it takes more time. And I don’t see a good reason for a respiratory disease to stay in the population longer than necessary,” he said according to a report by The College Fix. 

Dr. Ron Paul On Coronavirus Panic: The Real Danger “Is The Government’s Overreaction”

Many politicians claim flattening the curve prevents hospitals from being overrun.  But few hospitals have had problems keeping up with COVID-19 patients.

With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected, or they had very, very mild symptoms, especially if they are children. So, it’s very important to keep the schools open and kids mingling to spread the virus to get herd immunity as fast as possible, and then the elderly people, who should be separated, and the nursing homes should be closed during that time, can come back and meet their children and grandchildren after about 4 weeks when the virus has been exterminated,” he added.

Instead, the mainstream media took to fear-mongering and the government has instituted martial law in parts of the country to lock people in their homes to try and prevent the spread of the coronavirus.  As we have all seen going into a month worth of lockdowns, the only thing we have achieved is a guarantee this virus will come back and millions of people won’t be able to make ends meet for months or possibly even years.  The damage done to society and some people’s livelihoods is irreparable.  This lockdown experiment has been an abject failure and one that should never be repeated again.  If people cared about their basic rights as human beings, they would have never allowed any government official to get away with closing their business and placing them on weeks of house arrest.

Wittkowski stated that the standard cycle of respiratory diseases is a two-week outbreak, including a peak, after which “it’s gone.” He pointed out that even in a regime of “social distancing,” the virus will still find ways to spread, just more slowly:

You cannot stop the spread of a respiratory disease within a family, and you cannot stop it from spreading with neighbors, with people who are delivering, who are physicians—anybody. People are social, and even in times of social distancing, they have contacts, and any of those contacts could spread the disease. It will go slowly, and so it will not build up herd immunity, but it will happen. And it will go on forever unless we let it go. -Dr. Knut Wittkowski

But if the lockdowns are lifted, and the chains removed from humanity, governments will be seen for what they really are: masters willing to use tyranny and destroy lives for profit. Don’t expect any government to relinquish power so willingly.

Andrew Cuomo Bill de Blasio Coronavirus outbreak Doctors emergency rooms hospitals Intelwars New York New York City nurses shortages Ventilators

‘You’re on your own’: New York doctors told to choose who lives and dies amid ventilator shortage, leading medical group says

The Medical Society of the State of New York said emergency room doctors “are reporting being told the equivalent of ‘Use your best judgment. You’re on your own'” amid a ventilator shortage that’s crippling hospitals amid the rapid spread of the coronavirus pandemic, WNBC-TV reported.

In effect, doctors treating critically ill COVID-19 patients are tasked with choosing who lives and who dies, the station said.

“Ventilators as lifeboats are reaching capacity. At this point, the most difficult decisions facing physicians will have to be made,” and that “we will be seeing increasing depression and PTSD that will eclipse today’s physician burnout,” the premier medical group said Thursday, WNBC reported.

‘In escapable warzones’

Emergency rooms have become “inescapable warzones,” the station said, citing a Manhattan doctor, while a Queens physician told WNBC his ER is so flooded that ventilators are being managed in hallways. Other doctors said they’ve intubated their own colleagues, the station said, adding that nurses have walked out demanding more personal protective equipment.

In addition, an EMT group issued new guidelines telling paramedics to not transport cardiac arrest patients to emergency rooms if they can’t revive them in the field, WNBC reported.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said the spike in COVID-19 patients necessitated that the 2,500-bed Javits Center field hospital — intended for non-coronavirus patients to ease the strain on other hospitals — now will exclusively treat coronavirus patients, the station said, adding that the U.S. Army will run it.

Rising numbers

WNBC said New York City — now the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in America — accounts for 26% of the nation’s death toll and nearly a quarter of its overall cases. The city had 51,809 cases and 1,562 dead as of Thursday while the state had 92,381 cases and more than 2,500 deaths, the station said.

State consultants said New York will need 75,000 to 110,000 COVID-only beds when the apex of the outbreak hits, WNBC reported, adding that Cuomo said his team estimates the apex hitting at the earlier end of a seven-to-30-day range.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said on MSNBC Friday he expects 5,000 or more patients in need of intubation or ventilators in ICUs by next week, the station said.

“We have enough ventilators just to get to Sunday/Monday,” the mayor said, the station reported.

“I’m guaranteeing you that next week is going to be a lot tougher. Next week in New York City is going to be very tough,” de Blasio added, according the WNBC. “We have days to set up a structure to truly mobilize the medical community of this nation … If that is not done in the coming days, you’re going to see people die who did not need to die.”

The need for ventilators

More from the station:

New York needs three things — beds, equipment and staff, Cuomo says. Beds are the easiest to acquire. Nearly 100,000 retirees have returned to work to shore up medical staffing; some colleges are graduating medical students early. De Blasio called for a national medical personnel enlistment program Friday, saying the country needs a wartime footing for a wartime threat.

But equipment to save lives? Cuomo says he has 2,200 ventilators in the state’s stockpile. “At the current burn rate” of 350 new patients a night, Cuomo said Thursday the state supply could run out in six days.

The governor says he knows “where every ventilator is in the state.” He’s leveraging creative techniques like co-venting and retrofitting anesthesia machines to stretch supply. And he’s still trying to buy more.

“I need roughly 30,000 ventilators which I can’t get, but I only need 30,000 ventilators for two or three weeks at the top of my curve. I need backup public health professionals. But I only need them for two or three weeks at the top of my curve,” Cuomo said on MSNBC Thursday, according to WNBC.

Cuomo added that he doesn’t believe the federal government has enough ventilators to outfit what states will need in the coming weeks, the station said, and that they should be sent where they’re needed first — and then reallocate.

“No state is equipped to handle this situation. States don’t do public health emergencies,” Cuomo said on MSNBC, according to WNBC. “There is no capacity in my state health system that runs 50,000 beds to create and maintain an additional 50,000 beds, just in case once every 20 years there’s a pandemic. It doesn’t work that way.”

A Gates Foundation-funded Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation projection predicts New York could lose a total 16,000 people through the second week of May, the station said.

The Coronavirus, Fear, and Elitist Driven Market Insanity

This article was originally published by William Murray at The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity

Fear is contagious: Fear is more contagious than any virus could ever be, and the media has really fed the fear factor when it comes to the coronavirus.

I am by no means playing down the deadly Covid-19 coronavirus. It is a killer. Depending on the reporting nation, it appears that on average 3.4 percent of every 100 who catch the coronavirus die. Those are not good odds.

Adding to the problem, the Center for Disease Control allowed the virus to spread in the United States out of an act of pure stupidity. The CDC refused to allow testing of those with coronavirus symptoms unless they had visited certain areas of China. And what about those who were exposed at airports, restaurants, and stores? People died of the coronavirus in the United States before the CDC diagnosed a single case.

Because most of those infected are asymptomatic the scope of the spread of Covid-19 could only have been accurately measured by random testing. But months after the first actual warning from China there were not even enough test kits produced in the United States to test those with symptoms. Random testing still is impossible. Even citizens returning from hotspots in the first half of March were not tested at airports.

The headlines about seven dead in Seattle the first week of March emptied out stores and brought commerce to a standstill in that city. Shops and restaurants emptied out. With no guidance from federal, state or local officials the panic buying spread throughout the United States endangering the lives of millions of people as they coughed, sneezed and fought each other over toilet paper in Costco stores nationwide.

When the CDC began to test those with symptoms who had not been to China, the numbers exploded. As President Trump pointed out in his announcement most of those coronavirus cases came from Europe. But the CDC did not test anyone coming from Europe with the symptoms of the coronavirus despite the headline news of the virus outbreak there. Why?

Elitism: The problem at every level of the federal, state and local governments is elitism. All the bureaucrats think they are far smarter and superior to those they serve, and as a result, they come to very intellectually stupid conclusions. Romans 1:22 describes the government, business, and academic elites well: “Professing to be wise, they became fools.” (KJV)

Stock market reactions were bizarre even for that fantasy world. The DOW was down over 1,000 one day, back up over 1,000 the next, and then on Monday, March 16th down 12 percent, the worst day since 1987. The White House and the Federal Reserve announced the coronavirus would be fought with interest rate cuts.

Interest rates went to zero and the Federal Reserve pumped in $1.5 trillion before March 16th and then another $700 billion the day after.

WHAT? Using interest rate cuts and QE (Quantitative Easing) from the Fed to fight a killer virus?    NO … an interest rate hike to save the stock market from the coronavirus fear factor. The Federal Reserve also doubled down on overnight loans to help banks cover cash shortfall. The markets crashed anyway.

The bank liquidity problem predated the coronavirus. The bank bailout has been going on since last September. The Federal Reserve printed half a trillion dollars to save banks over the last six months. Does that make sense? Most of that money went to cover loans for more stock buybacks and operations of big corporations. The market plunge now requires even more Federal Reserve money printing to cover losses.

The Fed money could not bring the Markets back up because corporations had stopped “buybacks.” It was the buyback of their own stocks by corporations that drove the market up over the last decade or so, not value. Corporations like Exxon – all the big ones – bought back hundreds of billions a dollars a year of their own stock to drive up the share price for investors, and I might add, to increase the bonuses by millions of dollars a year of the CEOs of those companies.

The collective corporations in the S&P bought back more than 100 percent of their total free cash flow in 2019 and for many years before that. Some companies, even in the DOW, paid out more to buy back stock than they made in profit. They borrowed money to buy back stock and drive up the markets.

Total buybacks in 2018 were $806 billion and in 2019 an estimated $710 billion. All down the tubes now, lost in a few days of panic selling. Not enough left of it to buy a coffee at 7-11.

Remember Boeing Aircraft and the 737 Max problem of two crashes that grounded the planes worldwide? Over a period of six years (2013-2019) Boeing paid out $17 billion in dividends and bought back $43 billion of its own stock to drive up the stock price. That $60 billion came to 140 percent of profit for those years.

The CEO of Boeing received tens of millions of dollars for raising Boeing stock value! When he was finally forced out because of the 737 Max crashes he was given $18 million to leave as a reward for cutting production corners and artificially driving up the cost of the stock.

Corporations, like Netflix, that have never made a profit had shares trading at hundreds of dollars.

The markets are so important to the elites that President Trump along with the House Democrats and Republican Senate will do anything to get people buying and cash flowing so the big corporations can restart the buybacks they had to stop because of Covid-19 loss of business.

United Airlines used over 80 percent of its free cash flow in 2019 to buy back stock and now has gone begging for money from President Trump and the Congress to continue operations.

The elites who run the businesses and the bureaucracies are worried about their status and will do anything to keep the markets flying high. Their wealth is based on a fantasy bubble that something like the coronavirus could pop. The elites were so fearful they pretended there was no problem until the problem was too big to hide. Now the public must suffer.

Some final numbers: As of March 17th, the Fed has tossed $2.2 trillion into the whirlpool sewer of the American stock markets. The money could have gone to rebuild the entire rail network in the United States or to relieve the roads of congestion. The money could have been used to repair and replace the thousands of bridges in the United States that are deficient.

OR … That $2.2 trillion could have been used to increase the number of hospital beds per 1,000 persons in the United States up to Chinese or Russian numbers. Yes, the United States has just 2.5 or so hospital beds per 1,000 population in the United States, less than even Turkey. The United States ranks 32nd and for the Covid-19 pandemic, the tents are starting to go up.

“Greatest nation in the world.” Agreed. We have an unequaled military that can go anywhere and do anything. It should be able to — the government prints nearly a trillion dollars a year to pay for it. “Greatest nation in the world” starts to sound flat when the roads, bridges, rail systems and patched together hospital systems are examined under strain.

The Elites, the top 10 percent that own or control 80 percent of the wealth of the nation, have failed us. That includes not just the billionaires, but the Donald Trumps, Joe Bidens, Nancy Pelosis, Mitch McConnells along with the bankers, brokers, CEOs and academic leaders who have produced so many college graduates who now work at convenience stores.

They built the system to do what it does … Create false value in stocks because capital gain is taxed at a far lower rate than dividend income. The tax system was designed to do what the CEOs did to raise the value of their stock at the expense of quality, safety, and jobs.

The political, financial and educational systems have been broken by blood-sucking elites and the time for true populism is now. The nation belongs to the people, not to the elites, and now is the time for the people to take back their nation.

Libertarian populism, the fundamentals as taught by Frederick Hayek in the Constitution of Liberty must finally be turned to for the true freedom the people want and deserve.

Spanish nurse details horrific conditions at country’s hospitals: ‘It’s just going to collapse’

A Spanish nurse says that going to work on a daily basis and fighting COVID-19 is like going to war.

What are the details?

According to Business Insider, nurse Coral Merino said that COVID-19 patients are dying lonely deaths alone and away from their families. Health authorities said Saturday, according to a CNBC report, that coronavirus infections have reached 5,753 people, half of them in Madrid, since the first case was detected in Spain in late January.

“Going to work is like going to a war,” Merino said. “Every day I go to work, I go feeling fear, stress, and pain at being witness to this situation.”

Merino, an ER nurse at Principe de Asturias University Hospital in Alcala de Henares, added that health care providers are also at risk, because there isn’t enough personal protection wear to go around.

“These are hard times for all professionals, but especially for us,” she admitted. “We’re constantly in close contact with patients. … There simply aren’t enough masks to change them each time we go to see an isolated patient. There are no proper gowns. We just have to make do with porous ones and put plastic aprons over them.”

Merino, who has been a nurse since 2011, added, “We’re reusing the goggles other colleagues have used, washing and disinfecting them ourselves.”

Merino also revealed that the health system is already seeing “many, many infected colleagues” and “many on leave.”

Merino, who is also a wife and mother, said that she is afraid of catching COVID-19 and being quarantined away from her family.

“I’ve been unable to kiss them since the beginning,” she said. “The first thing I do when I come home from work is shower and scrub myself down, basically until it hurts. I’m terrified of coughing more than I ought to, of getting a fever, and of being isolated from my family, of not being able to hold or kiss my baby for at least 15 days.”

Not taking disease seriously angers nurse

Merino went on to blast people who are not taking the disease seriously and carrying on as if it were all a hoax.

“I see such little awareness around me,” she said. “It’s making me so angry. I don’t think [some people are] very aware of how quickly this virus spreads, and the damage they’re causing by not staying at home. Not only because they can catch it, but because they could have an accident or a problem that would require them going to the hospital. It’s just going to collapse.”

Merino added that due to the spread, many patients are dying alone.

“Many die alone without their families,” she said. “No matter how hard you try not to, you take them home with you. And you just cry, you cry a lot.”

Leaked COVID-19 Documents: Hospitals Prep For 96 Million Infections & 480K Deaths

Source: MSN

Leaked medical conference documents have warned that hospitals across the United States are preparing for 96 million coronavirus infections.  Not only that, but the same document wants hospitals to make preparations for 480,000 deaths from this outbreak.

the American Hospital Association (AHA) conference in February reveal that US hospitals are preparing for:

– 96 million coronavirus infections
– 4.8 million hospitalizations from the infection
– 480,000 deaths in the United States

According to Business Insider, these leaked documents are telling. Dr. James Lawler, a professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, presented the harrowing “best guess” estimates of the extent of the outbreak to hospitals and health professionals as part of the AHA webinar called What Healthcare Leaders Need to Know: Preparing for the COVID-19 on February 26.

These documents paint a bleaker picture for those who are over the age of 60. According to the leaked documents:

People aged 80 and over have a 14.8% chance of dying if they contract the infection, the slides revealed. The risk declines with youth, though those aged 70-79 and 60-69 are still placed at a significant risk, with 8% and 3.6% mortality rates respectively.  –Business Insider

Additionally, it’s worth noting that Dr. Lawler’s estimate of 480,000 deaths would indicate a death rate of just half a percent (0.5%), which is significantly lower than death rates being reported by the WHO (3.4%) and the nation of Italy (5%). If the death rate in the United States reached just 2% while 96 million Americans are infected, that would result in 1.92 million deaths.

The United States has fewer than one million hospital beds, and they are typically around 75% occupied by existing patients, unrelated to the coronavirus. Natural News has calculated that U.S. hospital beds will be overrun by May 30th if nothing is done to stop the exponential spread of the coronavirus.

Mike Adams, aka, the Health Ranger at Natural News, has a new video out presenting the math and statistics found in these leaked documents.

 If you want to die, heed the advice of Mike Pence and do nothing to prepare for the pandemic. The Surgeon General also hopes you stop buying protecting gear so that you get infected and die more quickly, thereby making more protective equipment available to the government which is stockpiling like mad at this very minute. –Mike Adams, Natural News

America collapse Conspiracy Fact and Theory Coronavirus death toll domestic air travel Emergency Preparedness forced quarantine forced vaccines Headline News hospitals Infections Intelwars Market Crash Police State Predictions Preparedness school closures societal collapse testing numbers

Here’s What’s Coming for America as the Coronavirus Spread: MEDICAL MARTIAL LAW

This article was originally published by Mike Adams at Natural News. 

Now that the CDC has invoked its “rule by secrecy” mode by hiding coronavirus testing numbers in order to deceive America (while it quietly “seeds” infected people into the population), it’s abundantly obvious that the coronavirus outbreak in America is going to be used to invoke medical martial law.

There are already thousands of infections across America that have not yet been tested — all by design, of course, as the CDC withheld testing kits from hospitals and local health officials across the country. By our best estimates, there are currently between 5,000 and 10,000 infections in America, mostly along the West Coast (Seattle and Northern California) with new outbreaks taking place in New York City, Miami, Chicago, and other major cities.

Right now, domestic air travel is spreading the virus like crazy, since it spreads during the asymptomatic phase when people don’t even know they’re infected. There is currently no screening of domestic air travelers, and no domestic flight routes have been locked down (although that’s coming soon).

Importantly, the coronavirus has already broken containment in America and is now impossible to contain. It will impact every major city in America.

Here are a few of my predictions for where we’re going with this. So buckle up and get ready, because the coronavirus is coming to a city near you:

#1) Hospitals will be overrun in regions of America – As the exponential growth rates cause an explosion in infection cases, hospital beds that can handle biocontainment demands will quickly be full. We are close to that condition at this very moment, in fact.

#2) Entire cities in America will be placed under quarantine lockdown status: This may take a while to be fully recognized and declared, but it will occur. Once you are caught in quarantine, you will not be allowed to leave, for fear that you might spread the disease to other cities.

#3) School closures will become commonplace: This is already beginning to occur, and the practice will rapidly spread.

#4) Over the coming week, there will be tens of infections confirmed in America: By the end of this week (Sunday night), we should expect somewhere around 100 new cases having been confirmed this week.

#5) Within 30 days, if lab testing is allowed to take place, you will see hundreds of coronavirus infections confirmed in America. Watch for cases to jump to 200, then 500, etc. If the testing is allowed to take place, this is inevitable.

#6) Within 90 days, if the labs are legitimately trying to test everyone they can, you will see thousands of coronavirus infections confirmed in America. By June, in other words, there will be thousands of confirmed infections in America, and possibly over 10,000 by that time.

#7) Unless there’s a miracle intervention, eventually the number of coronavirus infections confirmed in America will exceed 100,000. This is mathematically inevitable, especially with the widespread negligence, incompetence and even criminal maliciousness of federal agencies that are right now telling Americans to NOT prepare. The federal government, of course, may never allow these numbers to see the light of day, since the CDC and the Trump administration now appear to be modeling their response after communist China (basically just lie about everything and hide the truth).

#8) Restrictions on domestic air travel, armed highway checkpoints: Once the quarantines begin, you will see armed roadside checkpoints and domestic air travel restrictions put in place. America will become a medical police state.

#9) Forced vaccines and “show me your papers” police state protocols. Eventually, once the vaccine is rolled out, you will see calls for mandatory vaccines and restrictions on human rights for people who are not vaccinated (no right to hold a job, no right to travel on public transportation, no right to be a parent, etc.). Prepare to be required to carry proof that you’ve been vaccinated. “Show me your papers.”

#10) The near-collapse of entire cities into lawlessness and chaos: Although it might take a year or more for the full extent of the coronavirus pandemic to work its way across the nation, at some point entire cities will seemingly descend into lawlessness and chaos. The U.S. military is already reportedly planning for up to 3.3 million deaths in America as a possible scenario. The quarantines, paycheck losses and the severing of food supply lines will wreak havoc in cities like Seattle and San Francisco, where homelessness and filth are already out of control, even without a pandemic.

Just remember, you are told there’s no need for YOU to prepare, even while the military and government are buying every truckload of emergency supplies they can find.

It’s criminal. When the Surgeon General tells you to STOP buying masks because they don’t work, and then says hospital staffers need all those masks because they DO work, you know he’s lying.

Get prepared with gear, or get ready to die. That about sums it up.

Black Swan Event containment Coronavirus Emergency Preparedness Headline News hospitals infection infection rate Intelwars market crass military preparations outbreak pandemic Recession Transmission Virus

Odds of Coronavirus Becoming a Pandemic Jump 40% As The Virus Wipes $5 Trillion From Markets

The odds of the coronavirus outbreak becoming a pandemic have jumped 40% recently. As nations struggle to contain this virus, it’s taking its toll on the markets too, wiping out $5 trillion.

Cases of the new coronavirus disease are rising quickly outside China, and the odds of the outbreak turning into a pandemic have now doubled. The odds are up from 20% to 40%, according to a report from Moody’s Analytics. “Our previous assumption that the virus will be contained in China proved optimistic, and the odds of a pandemic are rising,” said the firm according to CNBC. 

If this outbreak becomes the pandemic many are suspecting it will, the markets will take a further beating. Moody’s says that a global and U.S. recession is certain should the outbreak be labeled a pandemic.

Will A Face Mask REALLY Protect You From The Coronavirus?

“The economy was already fragile before the outbreak and vulnerable to anything that did not stick to script. COVID-19 is way off script,” the economists said. “COVID-19 came out of nowhere. It may be what economists call a black swan – a rare and inherently unforeseeable event with severe consequences,” they added.

 Coronavirus panic sent world share markets crashing again on Friday, compounding their worst week since the 2008 global financial crisis and bringing the wipeout in value terms to $5 trillion.

The rout showed no signs of slowing as Europe’s main markets slumped 2-3 percent early on and the ongoing dive for safety sent yields on U.S. government bonds, seen as probably the securest asset in the world, to fresh record lows.

The Risk To Trump’s Reelection: Market PLUNGES

Your savings account is at an even bigger risk now too. Analysts are now wagering that the Federal Reserve will cut U.S. interest rates as soon as next month and other major central banks will follow to try and nurse economies through the troubles and stave off a global recession.

Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland Epidemic Headline News health care systems hospitals illness Intelwars kill people lethal mayhem pandemic pandemic flu preparations Preparedness Prepper's Blueprint spanish flu Virus WHO

The Grim Reality About Pandemics They Don’t Want You To Know: “No Country is Prepared”

This article was originally published by Sara Tipton at Tess Pennington’s Ready Nutrition. 

It’s been 100 years since the Spanish Flu caused a global pandemic. While you can rest easy right now knowing a global pandemic is not currently a threat, it is just a matter of time before the next one arrives. And when the next one does arrive, “scientists say an outbreak of a flu-like illness could sweep across the planet in 36 hours and kill tens of millions due to our constantly-traveling population.”

According to the Daily Mail, “The report, named A World At Risk, said current efforts to prepare for outbreaks in the wake of crises such as Ebola are ‘grossly insufficient’”. It was headed by Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, the former Norwegian prime minister and director-general of the WHO (World Health Organization). He said in the report: “The threat of a pandemic spreading around the globe is a real one. ‘A quick-moving pathogen has the potential to kill tens of millions of people, disrupt economies and destabilize national security.’”

No country is fully prepared for the mayhem a pandemic flu can cause

Out of the entire world, a mere 13 countries had resources and health care systems to put up a fight against a global pandemic. Among the countries ranked in the top tier were Britain, the United States, Australia, Canada, France, and Holland.

Scientists say that the size of a city and its structure can impact an influenza epidemic, meaning where you live could affect the spread of the virus. Regardless of whether flu cases rise to a wintertime peak or plateau from fall to spring, new research suggests that the size of a city itself is what influences the contours of its flu season according to Science News.  Larger cities with higher levels of crowding were associated with a steady accumulation of influenza cases throughout the flu season. Smaller cities with less crowding tended to have a flu season with a more intense surge in winter, researchers report in the October 5 publication.

When a highly lethal flu pandemic comes, it will affect everyone alive today. In a related article, “Pandemic flu is apolitical and does not discriminate between rich and poor. Geographical boundaries are meaningless, and it can circle the globe within hours.” Dr. Gupta goes on to explain that when most people hear “flu”, they think of seasonal flu, but pandemic flu is “a different animal, and you should understand the difference.”

Preparations start at home

So just how do we prepare for a possible pandemic? A big concern with pandemics is that supplies would be quickly exhausted leaving many unprepared to handle the ordeal. This will only fuel a more chaotic situation. These concerns are not new to most governments and steps have been taken to ensure communities are prepared and are able to contain most epidemics.

Which such a large-scale emergency, it is difficult to know where to start and the best answer this author can give you is to start at home. We can’t control if or when governments decide to prepare, but we can control when and what we, as individuals need to protect our families.

This a suggested list of supplies to help you combat a pandemic is based on Tess Pennington’s best-selling book, The Prepper’s Blueprint. The preparedness manual offers real-world advice for preppers of all levels and stages to help gear up for a pandemic.

The following is a list of pandemic supplies for your home:

In the event of a pandemic, because of anticipated shortages of supplies, health care professionals and widespread implementation of social distancing techniques, it is expected that the large majority of individuals infected with the pandemic illness will be cared for in the home by family members, friends, and other members of the community – not by trained health care professionals. Bear in mind that persons who are more prone to contracting illnesses include people 65 years and older, children younger than five years old, pregnant women, and people of any age with certain chronic medical conditions.

In addition to having some necessary supplies on hand, you’ll also want to do the following:

  • Store a one month supply of water and food. During a pandemic, if you cannot get to a store, or if stores are out of supplies, it will be important for you to have extra supplies on hand.
  • Periodically check your regular prescription drugs to ensure a continuous supply in your home.
    Have any nonprescription drugs and other health supplies on hand, including pain relievers, stomach remedies, cough, and cold medicines, fluids with electrolytes, and vitamins.
  • Talk with family members and loved ones about how they would be cared for if they got sick, or what will be needed to care for them in your home.
  • Prepare a sick room for the home to limit family member’s exposure to the virus.

Brainstorming in advance is a great way to determine where you’d quarantine a family member or create your sick room. Individual preparation is critical if you would like to beat any pandemic and that all starts with brainstorming and coming up with the best ideas to keep yourself and loved ones healthy.

Coronavirus Cases Surge: Pandemic Becomes More Likely As Cases Jump In Italy

Source: MSN

The coronavirus outbreak is inching closer to becoming a pandemic.  Italy has seen cases surge and now reports one death as global infections continue to rise. Authoritative containment efforts have not been effective to this point.

Authorities are struggling to contain and understand the outbreak in countries that have had a surge in infections, such as South Korea, Italy, and Iran.  Infected cases have skyrocketed and have increased over 2,000 percent in the past couple of weeks, according to a report by Fox News.  Italy is considered the site of Europe’s first major outbreak and the largest outside of Asia. The number of infected cases jumped to 152, compared to just three 10 days ago.

Italy’s outbreak is of concern to many health officials.  The country has seen 110 cases in Milan, which is its financial district and Venice, known as a famous hub for tourists throughout the world. The possibility of spreading the virus from a tourist destination like Venice to the entire globe is now possible. Events and soccer matches were canceled in the country, while some of its movie theatres were reportedly shuttered, including Milan’s legendary La Scala.

“We are worried about the situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran and in Italy,” World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news conference in Stockholm via a video link.

Food and water provisions should be made before this virus has a chance to become a pandemic, if at all possible. Face masks may help, however, avoiding the general public is the best chance at the prevention right now.  Make sure your first aid kit is up to par and that you are able to care for yourself or a sick family member if need be.  Quarantining on your own may be the best advice yet. It’s times like this that I like to say “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”  If you can prevent the contraction of the virus (and transmission to your family members), that will be your best chance. However, if you do get sick, you will want to be prepared for the long haul, especially in hospitals fill up in the event that this virus becomes a pandemic.
