Complying With Tyranny

by Larken Rose, Activist Post:

In the so-called “Land of the Free,” how many people will ever even question the limits of what they will allow political “authorities” to do to them? When will you wake up and say enough?

In the video below, Larken Rose rants about obeying tyrants who are grabbing power right now without authority.

How Easy Money Is Increasing the Devastation of the COVID-19 Panic

from Silver Doctors:

There has been long and virulent asset inflation in which financial engineers have…

by Brendan Brown via Mises

A counterfactual experiment helps us realize the enormity of the present situation.

What Could Have Happened

Suppose the COVID-19 pandemic had hit the globe under sound money, say a gold standard regime. In that counterfactual there would be no overhang of virulent asset price inflation, no Federal Reserve at the ready to embark on endless (and limitless) QE (quantitative easing) and zero rates, and no megaprogram feasible for guaranteeing corporate debt issues as determined by the realpolitik of crony capitalism.

Waves Of Mutilation: Medical Tyranny And The Cashless Society

by Brandon Smith, Alt Market:

Back in 2014 during the Ebola scare in the US I published an article warning about how a global pandemic could be used by the elites as cover for the implementation of an economic collapse as well as martial law measures in western nations. My immediate concern was the way in which a viral outbreak could be engineered or exploited as a rationale for a level of social control that the public would never accept under normal circumstances. And this could be ANY viral outbreak, not just Ebola. The point is the creation of an “invisible enemy” that the populace cannot quantify and defend itself against without constant government oversight.

For A Glimpse Into Your Dystopian Police State Future, Just Visit Your Local Walmart

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Things are really starting to get crazy out there.  All over the country, “non-essential” businesses have been forced to shut down, but because Walmart sells food and other basic supplies it gets to be one of the “essential” businesses that stays open.  However, a trip to your local Walmart now will be far different from what you remember previously.  When you arrive, you will find that a very narrow entry corridor has been taped off with yellow security tape, and only a very limited number of shoppers are being allowed in at any one time.  And once you get inside, you will discover that there are very strict limits on what you are permitted to purchase.

MODELS HAVE GROSSLY OVERESTIMATED COVID-19

by Jim Quinn, The Burning Platform:

These are the types of “projections” that drive the #COVID19 hysteria. The level of exaggeration by these so-called models is staggering. This is also what JUNK science looks like.
Dr. Fauci’s recommendations for lockdown are based on such faulty models. It’s truly a disgrace!

If Lockdown Is a Needless Over-Reaction, Then Why Did China Lockdown Half its Economy?

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:

Recall that the initial deaths and related costs are only the first-order effects; policy makers have to consider the second-order effects.

Everyone who reckons that the lockdown is needless and more destructive than the pandemic that triggered it has to answer this question: then why did China lockdown half its economy?

The reasoning of those who reckon the lockdown is needless can be summarized as follows:

1. The lockdown is based on poorly executed extrapolations of faulty data; the death rate is much lower than expected, and most cases are mild or asymptomatic.

Michael ‘Big Short’ Burry Blasts “Unjustifiable” Lockdowns As “Most Devastating Economic Force In History”

from ZeroHedge:

Infamous for his painful but ultimately profitable “big short” bet against mortgage-backed securities during the 2008 financial crisis, Michael Burry, the doctor-turned-hedge-fund-manager has been on a multi-day Twitter rant claiming that the lockdowns intended to contain the COVID-19 pandemic are worse than the disease itself.

Media caught red-handed using dummy doll at Elmhurst ICU, selling simulation to general public as COVID-19 crisis

by Shepard Ambellas, Intellihub:

Mainstream media busted selling medical simulation drill as overwhelmed intensive care unit due to COVID-19

QUEENS (INTELLIHUB) — The fake corporate news media has just been caught red-handed pushing absolute lies and propaganda onto the American people selling a medical simulation as a reality, according to one YouTuber who claims the media’s staging is “not debatable.”

Fake Coronavirus Data, Fear Campaign. Spread of the COVID-19 Infection

by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research:

Do not let yourself be misled by the fear campaign, pointing to a Worldwide coronavirus calamity with repeated “predictions” that hundreds of thousands of people are going to die.

These are boldface lies. Scientific assessments of the health impacts of  the COVID-19 have been withheld, they do not make the headlines. 

While COVID-19 constitutes a serious health issue, why is it the object of  fear and panic?

According to the WHO, “The most commonly reported symptoms [COV-19] included fever, dry cough, and shortness of breath, and most patients (80%) experienced mild illness.”  

The WHO Announces “Suspected” Cases of COVID-19 Should Be Written As COVID-19 Deaths (No Virus Test Required)

0

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

In a stunning disregard for medical and scientific integrity, the WHO posted its new guidelines for determining official deaths from COVID-19 which do not require cases be positively confirmed through virus testing, but only that it is suspected to be a cause of death.
