Defense Intelligence Agency Department of Defense Government Surveillance Intelwars Pentagon Ron Wyden spying spying on Americans

Pentagon conducting warrantless surveillance of Americans, senator says

The Pentagon is conducting warrantless surveillance of Americans, according to a U.S. senator. A letter written by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) demands the Department of Defense release information about any government agencies buying location data from “shady” app companies to spy on U.S. citizens.

“I write to urge you to release to the public information about the Department of Defense’s (DoD) warrantless surveillance of Americans,” stated the letter addressed to Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III.

The letter refers to media reports from February 2020 asserting that “U.S. government agencies are buying location data obtained from apps on Americans’ phones and are doing so without any kind of legal process, such as a court order.” Wyden writes that he has “spent the last year investigating the shady, unregulated data brokers that are selling this data and the government agencies that are buying it.”

Last year, the Wall Street Journal reported that law enforcement agencies were using cellphone GPS data taken from mobile apps without obtaining a warrant first. The article referenced a Treasury Department watchdog report claimed that the Internal Revenue Service was utilizing commercial platforms to track cellphones.

A Vox report from the same time said it wasn’t only the IRS that used cellphone data from apps to track Americans, “The military, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) do it, too.”

“The location data is drawn from ordinary cellphone apps, including those for games, weather and e-commerce, for which the user has granted permission to log the phone’s location,” the WSJ reported in February 2020. “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a division of DHS, has used the data to help identify immigrants who were later arrested, these people said. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, another agency under DHS, uses the information to look for cellphone activity in unusual places, such as remote stretches of desert that straddle the Mexican border.”

Apps downloaded to a mobile phone send location data to third-party companies that then sell that data to “advertisers, marketers, and data brokers — even other location data providers,” and the information could be passed through “several companies before it reaches its end user,” which could be government agencies willing to pay for the data.

Sean O’Brien, principal researcher of ExpressVPN’s Digital Security Lab, said the practice is akin to “data laundering.” O’Brien told Recode. “There are so many actors sharing and selling data that it’s incredibly difficult to chase the trail.”

One of the companies selling app information to the government was X-Mode Social Inc. Upon the release of the reports of the data broker selling location information of cellphone users to U.S. military contractors, X-Mode’s software development kits and location trackers were banned from the Apple Store and Google Play Store, the two biggest app stores in the world. X-Mode’s software development kit was used in hundreds of apps with millions of users.

It is illegal for the U.S. government to directly surveil Americans without a warrant under the Fourth Amendment. In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to impose limits on the ability of law enforcement “to obtain cellphone data pinpointing the past location of criminal suspects in a major victory for digital privacy advocates,” according to Reuters.

But government agencies contend they aren’t doing anything illegal since they’re “simply buying commercially available data supplied by users who consented for that data to be collected,” Vox added.

In January, the New York Times reported on an unclassified memo from the Defense Intelligence Agency that allegedly revealed that DIA analysts “have searched for the movements of Americans within a commercial database in five investigations over the past two and a half years.”

“DIA. does not construe the Carpenter decision to require a judicial warrant endorsing purchase or use of commercially available data for intelligence purposes,” the DIA memo purportedly said.

Wyden demands that the Pentagon reveal if any other DoD components besides the DIA are “buying and using without a court order location data collected from phones located in the United States.”

Vice’s Motherboard tech blog reported that one of the answers was classified:

Some of the answers the DoD provided were given in a form that means Wyden’s office cannot legally publish specifics on the surveillance; one answer in particular was classified. In the letter Wyden is pushing the DoD to release the information to the public. A Wyden aide told Motherboard that the Senator is unable to make the information public at this time, but believes it would meaningfully inform the debate around how the DoD is interpreting the law and its purchases of data. Wyden and his staff with appropriate security clearances are able to review classified responses, a Wyden aide told Motherboard. Wyden’s office declined to provide Motherboard with specifics about the classified answer. But a Wyden aide said that the question related to the DoD buying internet metadata.

This allegation of the government spying on people arrives a month after the bombshell report revealing the United States Postal Service has been secretly collecting data regarding social media posts by Americans.

Americans China collecting health data Department of Defense DNA genealogy research genetically modified soldiers Headline News Intelwars MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX Scientists Super Soldiers United States wake up

U.S. Legislators Concerned about China’s Efforts to Genetically Engineer “Super Soldiers”

This article was originally published by B.N. Frank at Activist Post. 

Americans have had various concerns about the Chinese government for decades.  Recently, the U.S. government identified hundreds of scientists and organizations that may have been compromised by China.  Earlier this year, CBS 60 Minutes aired a segment about risks associated with Chinese companies collecting health care data from Americans. The Department of Defense (DoD) has asked U.S. military personnel to not submit their DNA to genealogy research groups because of concerns about where it might end up.

Earlier this week, Full Measure aired a segment that reveals more disturbing details about all of that and more.  Of course, it’s not just the Chinese government that Americans have to worry about – this research is being explored in the West as well. Will we see a super-soldier arms race? Just what the world needs…


Super Soldiers

For years, intel officials and members of both parties have warned that China is the most serious global threat to America. Yet we have continued to allow China to buy U.S. companies that have sensitive data and operate other companies that collect it. Now comes word that China is trying to genetically engineer a force of superhuman soldiers. Congressman Scott Perry of Pennsylvania has been looking at the Chinese threat.

Sharyl: It’s been reported that China has conducted tests on soldiers to develop soldiers with some kind of enhanced biological capabilities. What do you know about that?

Rep. Scott Perry: Let me be clear. It’s because of the things that they are saying and doing that leads us to believe. Because they’re saying so. That they literally want to create super soldiers and almost like the superhuman race. 3:05ish All their rhetoric says that they’re moving into this area and they consider it a new area of warfare, and the American people need to, and policymakers need to understand, this doctrine of “unrestricted warfare.” Everything’s on the table. They literally have said that “We as China, shouldn’t have to abide by treaties and all these international doctrines that prohibit this kind of thing.” We’re talking about superhuman soldiers and something else that’s very chilling, especially during this pandemic, where they would literally create ethnic, Ethno-bioweapons. Right? Literally talking about clearing out everybody across the continent of the United States, who’s not of Chinese or Asian origin, and the ability to do that.

Sharyl: Is China collecting DNA-

Rep. Perry: Yes.

Sharyl: In mass quantities?

Rep. Perry: Collecting every bit of DNA across the globe. For instance, just for example, I believe it’s Morocco. They’re providing the vaccinations for Morocco for the COVID virus. The China virus is what it really should be called. They’re providing it. In return, Moroccans must give their DNA. It’s a one-way street. Not only do they do things like that, but they bought up the largest DNA banks in the United States of America. China owns them.

Sharyl: What are the U.S. DNA genetic banks, or DNA banks, and how were they allowed to purchase them?

Rep. Perry: Well, there’s no prohibition. Most of these banks are. And I don’t want to name certain companies.

Sharyl: Talking about popular websites where people have their genes analyzed?

Rep. Perry: Sure. Those are open for purchase because they’re… You freely gave your DNA as a condition of wanting to find out your ancestry, or you gave it otherwise, and now it’s owned by them, and they can sell that information, and they have. They have done that and China has bought it. There’s no prohibition on that.

Rep. Perry: The argument seems to be that we’re economically tied too closely, and you can’t decouple either at all, or even a little bit. Quite honestly, that argument just comports to greed. Right? We’re using… Literally, the solar panels on your home or your neighbor’s home are probably made by slave labor and slave child labor, either in China or mining out the materials by slave children in Africa, through China. These are the things that we have to come to terms with. The Chinese Communist Party has come to what we would currently configure or describe as concentration camps. They perform unauthorized organ harvesting. These are horrific things, and we’re doing business with them, and we’re saying that it’s diplomatically difficult to decouple because there’s too much money involved.

Sharyl: Then I don’t know if you know about this, but it struck me that President Trump had talked about TikTok.

Rep. Perry: Right.

Sharyl: Which is China-owned-

Rep. Perry: Right.

Sharyl: Was to be sold.

Rep. Perry: Yes.

Sharyl: Whatever happened to that.

Rep. Perry: There was a deal that was made, and I think it was going to go through… In which we or some Western powers would have control over the data, and so on and so forth. Now, I’m sure China didn’t like that, but they just… They kept on playing it out, and as far as I understand now, that deal is over and TikTok is going to remain in the United States, getting your facial recognition information to be used on a system of social credits that China uses in China, that will then be instituted in the United States. Not necessarily by the government, but by big corporations like the big tech companies, or airlines or whoever who says, “You can’t fly unless you comply with this in this way.” It doesn’t have to necessarily be the government, but it can be pseudo things that are supported by the government, that are so integral to society. It absolutely strips off of our freedom, and we’re allowing it in TikTok being here.

Sharyl (on-camera): Perry has introduced legislation to label the Chinese Communist Party, a transnational criminal organization. No action has been taken on it.

China Department of Defense Headline News Intelwars nuclear capabilities nuclear expansion power Russia superior United States War warhead stockpiles World

US Intelligence Tells Congress China’s Nuclear Arsenal “On Track To Exceed Our Previous Projection”

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

A hearing held by the Senate Armed Services Committee this week on the range of threats the United States faces globally focused on China and Chinese leadership viewing US power as “declining” while Beijing is “rising” on the world stage.

Most notable from the testimony is US intelligence’s view of China’s expanding nuclear arsenal, which is projected to at least double over the next decade. While currently, the Department of Defense estimates China’s warhead stockpile to be in the low-200s, the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Lt. Gen. Scott Berrier, told the Senate hearing on Thursday that a rapid expansion of its stockpile is a top priority for Beijing. To the surprise of lawmakers, he strongly suggested that the DIA’s most recent projections actually underestimated China’s true nuclear expansion and ambitions.

“In the span of capabilities that they have, the nuclear piece has been one component. It has been a priority for them,” Berrier told the lawmakers in response to a question by Sen. Tom Cotton, a well-known foremost China hawk. “And I think they have racked and stacked that in the things that they think that they need to get done by 2030 or 2035,” the DIA director followed with.

Gen. Berrier explained that US defense intelligence now sees China as seeking to outpace even the earlier Pentagon projections. He said:

“China is expanding and diversifying its nuclear arsenal… Last year, we assessed that China had a nuclear warhead stockpile in the low-200s and projected it to at least double over the next decade.

Since then, Beijing has accelerated its nuclear expansion and is on track to exceed our previous projectionPLA nuclear forces are expected to continue to grow with their nuclear stockpile likely to at least double in size over this decade and increase the threat to the U.S. homeland.”

And he further warned China is “probably” seeking to “match” many of America and Russia’s more advanced nuclear warhead capabilities and delivery platforms:

China probably seeks to narrow, match, or in some areas exceed U.S. qualitative equivalency with new nuclear warheads and delivery platforms that at least equal the effectiveness, reliability, and/or survivability of some U.S. and Russian warheads and delivery platforms under development. The PLA continues to improve its pursuit of a nuclear triad, and increasing evidence indicates that Beijing seeks to keep a portion of its nuclear forces on a “launch-on-warning” posture.

Berrier elsewhere in the testimony affirmed that China is “the long-term strategic competitor to the United States” and remains “as a pacing threat, [Beijing] poses a major security challenge.”

Via Japan Times

He said Beijing is focusing its defense technology efforts “almost certainly” toward holding” the US and allied forces at greater risk and greater distances from the Chinese mainland.”

In 2020 the Illinois-based Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists estimated that China possesses 350 nuclear warheads, a number far higher than the more conservative DoD estimate. In its report at the time, the think tank wrote, “We estimate that China has a produced a stockpile of approximately 350 nuclear warheads, of which roughly 272 are for delivery by more than 240 operational land-based ballistic missiles, 48 sea-based ballistic missiles, and 20 nuclear gravity bombs assigned to bombers. The remaining 78 warheads are intended to arm additional land- and sea-based missiles that are in the process of being fielded.”

Capitol building Capitol Police Capitol riots DC Department of Defense DoD Intelwars National Guard washington dc

National Guard could be stationed in DC until at least the fall: report

Department of Defense officials are considering keeping National Guard troops in Washington, D.C. through the fall, according to internal communication obtained by WTTG-TV.

There are currently approximately 6,000 National Guard troops patrolling Washington, D.C., following the Capitol riot on Jan 6. At one point, there were an estimated 26,000 National Guard members in D.C. to provide security for President Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.

An internal communication between the Department of Defense and the National Guard reportedly discusses keeping troops in the nation’s capital until the fall.

Robert G. Salesses, who is the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Global Security, allegedly discussed an extension of the National Guard in D.C.

“If it’s not possible to sustain at the current level with [National Guard] personnel, we need to establish the number of [National Guard] personnel (DCNG and out-of-state) we can sustain for an extended period – at least through Fall 2021 – and understand additional options for providing [Department of Defense] support, to include use of reserve personnel, as well as active component,” Salesses reportedly wrote to the Capitol Police and National Security Council in an email.

Currently, there are plans to keep the National Guard in Washington, D.C., until mid-March. On Monday, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said the cost of having the National Guard secure Washington, D.C. from Jan. 6 until March 15 will cost taxpayers $483 million — $284 million for personnel and $199 million for operations, according to Forbes.

Rep. Michael Waltz (R-Fla.) questioned why there are still National Guard troops in Washington.

“We still have National Guardsmen out there, away from their families, away from their jobs, supplementing the police,” Waltz told Fox News host Martha MacCallum. “And yet we can’t get a briefing on what is this dire threat that requires so many people. We still don’t have answers.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) also questioned why there were still troops in D.C.

“I sit on the Intelligence Committee, but I’m aware of no specific, credible threat reporting — as distinguished from aspirational, uncoordinated bluster on the internet — that justifies this continued troop presence,” Cotton wrote in a Fox News op-ed. “Thus, I believe the rest of these soldiers should also go home to their families and civilian jobs.”

The National Guard created a three-mile perimeter around the Capitol grounds after the Capitol riot, complete with barriers, fortified fences, and barbed wires.

Several Republican lawmakers have called for the barriers to be removed after pointing out the hypocrisy of the border wall being canceled by President Joe Biden.

The National Guard provided a statement to WTTG, “The National Guard is conducting prudent planning for the eventual end of the security mission and the return of its Soldiers and Airmen to their home stations.”

Maj. Matt Murphy, a spokesman for the National Guard, told DCist, “We are providing assistance such as security, communications, medical evacuation, logistics, and safety support to state, district and federal agencies.”

Law enforcement agencies involved with securing Washinton, D.C. and the federal buildings in the city will reportedly will discuss possible plans during a meeting on Feb. 17.

Americans bill bloodstream CDC Coronavirus COVID-19 Department of Defense Donald Trump Emergency Preparedness Federal Reserve Force Forecasting free vaccine Headline News health care workers Intelwars mandatory Military plans released playbook Prepare Robert redfield store food toxic concoction vaccinated everyone vaccnine vital workers

The Government Has Released Their Initial Plans To Force a Vaccine on EVERYONE

Earlier today, the Trump administration released its plans to vaccine everyone in a short time.  Three potential vaccines are currently in Stage 3 trials in the United States and could be ready in weeks, President Donald Trump said Tuesday.

Time is running out. And Trump has the military lined up and ready to distribute this vaccine to the public, whether you want it or not. The plan is to distribute the vaccine first to health care and other vital workers, as well as those most vulnerable (likely the older populations). After production ramps up, it will be made available to all Americans who want it. If you decide you don’t want it, don’t worry, the military will help convince you.

The Department of Defense and federal health agencies have outlined plans for a coronavirus vaccine, which includes having them available for free for all Americans. We have warned that the DoD is about to become the enemy of the public. Instead of committing terrorism abroad, they will be going that here. Prepare yourself.

The Pentagon & CDC Will Join Together To Mass Distribute The COVID Vaccine

This toxic concoction will also be “free.” The government says they will foot the bill (borrow money from the Federal Reserve) to get everyone vaccinated, according to the Watauga Democrat. 

“Preparing for the implementation of the safe and efficacious COVID-19 vaccine programs is a critical next step in the efforts to protect Americans and reduce the impact of COVID-19 and restore our normal way of life,” Centers for Disease Control and Director Dr. Robert Redfield said Wednesday, according to CNN.

The plans came in the form of a report to Congress and a “playbook” for states and local governments, according to the Associated Press and Fox News. The agencies are looking at January for a potential beginning of a vaccination campaign, although it remains possible that this could come later this year.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s playbook, the vaccination campaign will be “much larger in scope and complexity than seasonal influenza or other previous outbreak-related vaccination responses.”

President Trump said in a “Fox & Friends” interview Tuesday that a vaccine could be approved “in a matter of weeks.”

Time is almost up. Once this vaccine gets into your bloodstream, you cannot take it back out. This one is different from every other vaccine made, and it’s going to be necessary if you want to get groceries or leave your house. Mandatory or not, they will do what they can to convince you to take this vaccine.

Stay alert and be prepared.

banksters CDC control Coronavirus COVID-19 Department of Defense distribute vaccine distributed vaccines Donald Trump Emergency Preparedness Force Health Intelwars mandatory men with guns Military Operation warp speed outbreak Pentagon slaves state tyranny take over

The Pentagon & CDC Will Join Together To Mass Distribute The COVID Vaccine

A new coronavirus vaccine is right around the corner, thanks to Operation Warp Speed, and it’s distant the Pentagon. Still think this thing, and whatever is in it will not be mandatory?

According to Politico, the addition of the Pentagon (if you need help deciding whether or not to get vaccinated, men with uns will help you) to help with vaccine distribution is unprecedented. The plan to use the Pentagon’s force breaks with the longstanding precedent that CDC distributes vaccines during major outbreaks through a centralized ordering system.

The Department of Defense “is handling all the logistics of getting the vaccines to the right place, at the right time, in the right condition,” the official said in a call with reporters, adding that CDC will remain in charge of tracking any side effects that emerge post-vaccination and “some of the communications through the state relationships [and] the state public health organizations.”

More Proof Trump Is Working On Bill Gates’ Vaccine Under “Operation Warp Speed”

“We believe we’ve actually combined the best of both,” the DoD official said. A second senior administration official stressed the agencies would be working as “one team” to distribute hundreds of millions of doses if any of the vaccines in development are approved in the coming months.  So, if this won’t be mandatory, why is the Department of Defense involved in any capacity? Isn’t this a health issue? If you haven’t figured it out yet, it’s not about health. It’s about control.

For anyone who isn’t paying attention, the current President is Donald Trump. Just had to say is, because people have some kind of religious devotion to the guy who is going to use the Pentagon to try to shove a needle in your arm. Trump’s own impeachment lawyer, who also defended Jeffry Epstein, also says you don’t have the right to not be vaccinated.

Top Lawyer Says The Government Has THE POWER To “Plunge a NEEDLE IN YOUR ARM”

Alan “The-State-Can-Plunge-A-Needle-In-Your-Arm” Dershowitz Is In Epstein’s “Little Black Book”

Is this still 5D chess? Are you still trusting the plan? Remember when sites like this one to blasted for playing Trump’s OWN WORDS about how he will use the military to help roll this vaccine out? Well, the Department of Defense is headquartered at the Pentagon, and their stated mission is to provide “the military forces needed to deter war and ensure our nation’s security.”  Not many preparedness sites are connecting the dots to show this, but you need to be aware. Trump will be reelected if the banksters who are taking control of the world want him to be, and by getting this vaccine out, he’s helping complete a necessary step to our enslavement.

Sticking your head in the sand and ignoring reality won’t save you.  I’ve said time and time again, it’s time to wake, up, be aware of what’s going on so you can prepare.

bill and melinda gates foundation Darpa Department of Defense desired outcome divide the population domination gene editing Headline News Intelwars James Corbett Johnathan Latham Military Pentagon population extinction United Nations vaccines Wuhan Institute of Virology

Johnathan Latham: Bill Gates’ Foundation Working With DARPA On Gene Editing

In an interview with James Corbett of the Corbett Report, Johnathan Latham discusses The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s disturbing ties to the United States government. DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) an agency of the Department of Defense is working closely with Gates’ Foundation to introduce genetic modifications into various species.

Oh, and the United Nations is also involved. What could possibly go wrong? All wrapped up, it looks like everyone who wants power now has it and nothing is being done stop the destruction upon humanity.  The few are dominating the many and most won’t look past their own biases to see what’s really going on.

In his 2017 article, “Gates Foundation Hired PR Firm to Manipulate UN Over Gene Drives,” Latham describes how Gates, the UN, and DARPA want to manipulate human genetics to get the desired outcome in a child. “It allows you to drive populations extinct in the longer term.”

Other than the Gates Foundation, the funding for the destructive gene editing comes from the United States government.  DARPA is neck-deep in horrific experiments, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that they have a hand in splicing genetics.

DARPA Seeks FAA Approval For Military Drones Over American Cities By 2030 – At The Latest

Insider Reveals How DARPA Will Control Our Minds: “If Even 20% Of This Is True…”

While we are supposed to be focused solely on the riots, which we should all know by now that that’s what the NWO elitists want you to focus on (choose sides, divide, look over here) the gene drive editing agenda moves forward unbeknownst to those blinded by the mainstream media. As Corbett said:

“We now have documents that show there is considerable amounts of money and attention that is being devoted to this issue to make sure these types of decisions (to use genetic modifications on humans) happen and as you (Latham) point out, the absurdity of the non-signatory to the CBD (The Convention on Biological Diversity) is an “observer” is essentially directing this process. And making sure that things go well for that countries business interests, is on its face, absurd. But it has to be known, in order for the public to even think to be outraged by this. And that is one of the tragedies of this story, that even myself, who actually tries to keep up with issues like this, I had completely missed this story when it occurred.” –James Corbett

Latham then explains what we already know: the mainstream will relentlessly report on what they want you to focus on while things that are much more pertinent to our survival as humans on elsewhere. The media will distract and divide and while the public fights over which puppet gets to institute martial law, those who don’t’ care one iota who’s in power will continue their quest to destroy all of us.

This goes all back the Wuhan Institute of Virology and their release of a created “coronavirus.” The Gates Foundation is all about identifying potential pathogens that could create pandemics.

$138 Million Government Contract Will Fund Production Of 500 Million Pre-Filled COVID-19 Vaccine “Injection Devices”

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

Just when you thought that things couldn’t get any stranger, two U.S. government agencies have taken things to an entirely new level.  The U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have just put out a press release that is absolutely jaw-dropping, but so far hardly anyone is talking about it.

According to the press release, a 138 million dollar contract has been awarded to ApiJect Systems America for two projects known as “Project Jumpstart” and “RAPID USA”.  Apparently the goal of these projects is to have vast numbers of “injection devices” ready to go once a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available.  The following comes directly from the official website of the Department of Defense

“Today the Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, announce a $138 million contract with ApiJect Systems America for “Project Jumpstart” and “RAPID USA,” which together will dramatically expand U.S. production capability for domestically manufactured, medical-grade injection devices starting by October 2020.

Spearheaded by the DOD’s Joint Acquisition Task Force (JATF), in coordination with the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, the contract will support “Jumpstart” to create a U.S.-based, high-speed supply chain for prefilled syringes beginning later this year by using well-established Blow-Fill-Seal (BFS) aseptic plastics manufacturing technology, suitable for combatting COVID-19 when a safe and proven vaccine becomes available.

Today, there are about 328 million people living in the United States.  But the press release states that the plan is to produce “over 500 million prefilled syringes” in 2021

The contract also enables ApiJect Systems America to accelerate the launch of RAPID USA manufactured in new and permanent U.S.-based BFS facilities with the ultimate production goal of over 500 million prefilled syringes (doses) in 2021. This effort will be executed initially in Connecticut, South Carolina and Illinois, with potential expansion to other U.S.-based locations. RAPID will provide increased lifesaving capability against future national health emergencies that require population-scale vaccine administration on an urgent basis.

So that would be enough “injection devices” to vaccinate every man, woman, and child in the entire country one and a half times.

Wow.

Right now, researchers all over the globe are racing toward the development of a vaccine, but as I have discussed previously, that is not going to be an easy task.

And on Tuesday Dr. Anthony Fauci openly admitted to a U.S. Senate committee that there is no guarantee that a vaccine “is actually going to be effective”

As drugmakers across the world race to develop a coronavirus vaccine, White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said, “There’s no guarantee that the vaccine is actually going to be effective.”

Fauci delivered the somber warning Tuesday to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions during a hearing about the road to reopening businesses across the nation.

In addition, because there are multiple strains of COVID-19 already running around out there, one vaccine may not be able to cover them all.  So this could create a need for “multiple vaccines”, and this is something that NIH Director Francis Collins has openly acknowledged

Several vaccines will likely be needed to combat the coronavirus and immunize groups of people in America and abroad, U.S. National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins said in an interview.

So when the time finally comes, there may be more than one vaccine that authorities are pushing everyone to take.

But for now, there is no vaccine, and some health officials are pushing for social distancing restrictions to remain in place for months to come.

For example, Fox News is reporting that the top health official of Los Angeles County is warning that the local “stay-at-home order” may have to be extended until August…

Los Angeles County will likely continue its stay-at-home order through the summer, officials said Tuesday, as the coronavirus wreaks havoc on the economy and patience continues to wear thin for some calling for the state to reopen and for normal life to resume.

County Public Health Director Barabara Ferrer said the order will be extended “with all certainty” at the Board of Supervisors meeting, possibly until July or August, the Los Angeles Times reported.

And apparently L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti is on the same page.  In fact, he has once again stated that there will be no return to normal until a cure or a vaccine comes along

“I think quite simply she’s saying we’re not going to fully reopen Los Angeles — or anywhere in America — without any protections or health orders in the next three months,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

“I think we know it’s going to be even longer than three months. … We’re not moving past Covid-19, we’re learning to live with it. We’re not going to go back to pre-Covid life any time soon” or move forward without a medicine or vaccine.

I feel so badly for those living in the Los Angeles area because it certainly looks like the next three months are going to be really rough.

Of course, there are other large cities that are facing similar timelines.  Just check out what is being reported regarding the outlook for New York City…

New York City may not fully reopen until August after Gov. Cuomo advised that each phase of the four phase restart plan could take up to two weeks to implement.

Parts of the state of New York will be ready to reopen on May 15, this Friday, after meeting Governor Cuomo’s strict set of seven requirements.

We are only in mid-May right now.

Could you imagine being forced to stay home for the next three months?

Sadly, that is what millions of Americans will be facing.

And on Tuesday Dr. Fauci actually suggested that many schools will need to remain closed as the next school year begins

Anthony Fauci, MD, revealed Tuesday morning that a return to school in the fall “would be a bit of a bridge too far,” during a Senate Committee hearing. News of likely continued homeschooling for the next school year will probably be met with groans and frustration by harried parents struggling to balance working from home and also managing remote learning and having their children home 100 percent of the time.

Our entire society is melting down because of this virus, and if we can’t handle this crisis, what are we going to do when much worse things start happening to us?

Sometimes I wish that we could roll back the clock and go back to 2019.

Life seemed so much simpler back then, and things are only going to get crazier in the weeks and months to come…

Within 30 Days, The Coronavirus Outbreak Will Likely Become A Pandemic

Department of Defense experts are expecting the coronavirus to reach pandemic levels in 30 days.  With cases rising in the United States quickly, it will likely reach pandemic designation this month.

COVID-19 has touched every inhabitable continent, infecting more than 82,000 people worldwide since it was first identified last December, including potentially 65 people in the United States. Of the cases in the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed two were of unknown origin, indicating the possibility of community spread.

United States Forces Korea (USFK) confirmed Tuesday that a 23-year-old soldier stationed at Camp Carroll, located in Waegwan, South Korea, was the first service member known to have the virus and his wife tested positive on Saturday. –Newsweek

“The DoD is concerned not only the impact COVID-19 has on mission readiness, but the risk to inadvertently spread the virus to the U.S. by returning members who may have been exposed,” a senior Pentagon official told Newsweek. When asked for comment, Jessica R. Maxwell, a DOD spokesperson, said the DoD has “contingency plans in place and are taking steps to educate and safeguard our military and civilian personnel, family members and base communities in preventing a widespread outbreak.” But ultimately, “Commanders of individually affected geographic commands will be and are issuing specific guidance to their forces as their situations may require.”

U.S. Military Prepares For Coronavirus Pandemic

Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the CDC’s director of the Center for the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said it was inevitable that the coronavirus becomes widespread in the U.S. “It’s not so much a question of if this will happen anymore but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illness,” Messonnier said.
