Rumor: Top Chinese Secret Service man defected — says Covid was military bioweapon

It’s the sort of news that causes a Geopolitical realignment

China, dragon flag.

There are now three Chinese defectors saying Covid19 was deliberately created by the Chinese Military. The third,  Dong Jingwei, is possibly the highest ranking yet, and apparently talked to the DIA in mid February after flying into the US to visit his daughter.

The claims are that he has brought with him terabytes of data or “nearly 19 million documents”.  It’s potentially dynamite — allegedly containing studies of Covid, forecasts of spread in the West, and names of Chinese spies in the US with details of payments.

If this is confirmed, and the Chinese Military did release a deadly bioweapon on the world, as Paula Bolyard says, “it ranks as one of the worst crimes against humanity the world has ever seen” — and the media, and some intelligence agencies, helped to cover it up.

The DIA kept the defector a secret from the CIA and FBI because they believed there were Chinese spies within them.

BREAKING: Defector Claiming Chinese Military Responsible for COVID-19 Identified as Top Counterintelligence Official

Paula Bolyard, PJ Media

According to RedState, the data includes:

    • Early pathogenic studies of the virus we now know as SARS-CoV-2
    • Models of predicted COVID-19 spread and damage to the U.S. and the world
    • Financial records detailing which exact organizations and governments funded the research on SARS-CoV-2 and other biological warfare research
    • Names of U.S. citizens who provide intel to China
    • Names of Chinese spies working in the U.S. or attending U.S. universities
    • Financial records showing U.S. businessmen and public officials who’ve received money from the Chinese government
    • Details of meetings U.S. government officials had (perhaps unwittingly) with Chinese spies and members of Russia’s SVR
    • How the Chinese government gained access to a CIA communications system, leading to the death of dozens of Chinese people who were working with the CIA

One third of Chinese students may be PLA assets? 

RedState again:

Again, according to sources, Dong told DIA debriefers that at least a third of Chinese students attending US universities are PLA assets or part of the Thousand Talents Plan and that many of the students are here under pseudonyms. One reason for using pseudonyms is that many of these students are the children of high-ranking military and party leaders.

Dong could be the highest ranking defector yet from Chinese Intelligence

Jennifer Van Laar, on RedState:

Dong is, or was, a longtime official in China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS), also known as the Guoanbu. His publicly available background indicates that he was responsible for the Ministry’s counterintelligence efforts in China, i.e., spy-catching, since being promoted to vice minister in April 2018. If the stories are true, Dong would be the highest-level defector in the history of the People’s Republic of China.

The one thing that has always suggested it was an incompetent leak rather than planned dispersal was that it appeared so close to the Wuhan Lab that was working on it. If the Military wanted it to look natural it would have been easier to release far away in Yunnan. Perhaps the truth is a mix — and it was meant to be used, but leaked early, and was then fanned “towards the West” to make the most of a mistake. It’s hard to believe Military intel would assume they could leak it deliberately, then rely on the Democrats and media to help in an election year, and later fall back on an “accident” with plausible deniability. But then it’s hard to believe the Democrats would select Joe Biden.

It may be no accident that the Lab Leak theory is finally getting accepted

Given the timing of Dong’s defection, and the gradual spread of the details from that trove, it makes sense that news has finally grown legs from early May when the Nicholas Wade article appeared. That doesn’t change the fact that there was always enough evidence to treat the lab leak as a possibility all along.

If this is true, it may be just what the West finally needs to pull together against a real threat and to help identify the rot within. It will also put pressure on the Chinese Communist Party’s position in China.

    It is quite believable that China has been engaged in bioweapons research, and that Covid-19 was part of that research.

    However, before we point fingers and throw stones, i can’t help but wonder which countries are NOT conducting similar research?

    I’ll wager the list is shorter than you think.

        Australia is on this “Yes” list.

        Where is our level 4 lab. Geelong.

        Who runs it, the CSIRO.

        Did the lab have bats access? Yes.

        Has the CSIRO done covid “Gain of function” research. Yes.

        Did the CSIRO train Chinese “Bat Lady” personnel for the Wuhan Lab. Yes.

        Did the CSIRO show the Chinese how to do “gain of function” experiments on bats? Very Good Question.

        Its all about those government grants.

            Is there another way? Hindsight does not make a crime. Was it illegal to train the 2IC of the Wuhan bio-weapons team how the make SARS-2 infectious to humans and air-born? No. Was it a very bad idea? Yes.

            What is happening with SARS-1 research today? It has a 15% kill rate. Is anyone in the West involved in making it air born?

            Do we have another foreign passport holder working in Geelong today? Its the policy that must change. Government funding drives bad outcomes. People will ALWAYS do the wrong thing if money is thrown at bad outcomes.

              Plenty of other ways of pis$ing 10’s of millions into the wind, our government has made avoiding the obvious an art form.

              15% kill rate, the one person who has died after testing positive, was acquired overseas and is listed as being from OS, these people are not supposed to be included in the Aus body count
              .
              2000 have tested positive, none have died this year. that’s a 0% death rate from the worlds most infectious, most lethal disease. 25 million people in Australia.

              Remember that false positive for HIV that canned the University of QLD’s attempt at the not a vaccine, the HIV protein was inserted into the Frankenstein soup. Our scientists could not do that so they flew a scientist from the Wuhan lab over to show them how.

              Why is this the only disease not annualised but accrued.

              7 people a day are dying after getting the not a vaccine, you don’t question this. The government says, the pharmaceutical companies investigated, the age was raised to above 60’s but nothing to see here?

              They are all in this togeather!

                SARS-1 study began in 2002. Its unrelated to SAR-2, the current covid problem. Not sure what happened in Qld but conflating Qld science with what happens in a level 4 lab at Geelong is not valid.

                They are not ALL in this together. Guv is not ALL corrupt. Just a few bad players who do stuff for the funding. Policy must be set to get rid of them and prevent bad things beginning.

                SARS1 mortality rate was about 10%. But based on only 8000 cases and doctors never had much chance to advance their treatments. The mortality rate for the early cases of SARS2 varied from 2% up to 14% when testing was hopelessly inadequate (Eg Italy / UK).

                The reason SARS2 poses a much bigger threat is because it spreads before and without symptoms.

                Depends on the definition of corruption.

                Many are morally corrupt. They do this to keep their jobs. Otherwise it would be the private sector, assuming they could get a job that paid as well as government.

                They do stuff that is wrong. They know it is wrong. It does not mean they are corrupt. Just selfish and greedy. Their choices in life are limited.

                Many families have no-one working in the private sector for generations. As government has increased, government policy is driven by the need for ever higher taxes, regulations and money printing to inflate asset prices to get more tax.

                True corruption is when a few, steal funding from the rest and kill those who do not support them eg CCP.

                Our government works by generational incompetence. They are just too inept to be truly corrupt.

                Otherwise that reads as any government.

                I am not saying you are wrong. By your definition of corruption most of government is corrupt. Many would agree with you. It is not a crime in government to do a very poor job.

                Collaborating with China is not a crime. Developing bio-weapons for the government is not a crime.

                What I am saying is most of government is too inept to realize what they are doing has consequences. Mostly they do not care.

                I am more concerned about SARS-n being made air born at an Australian Level 4 lab using Chinese scientists and whether the work is going on now. Given all that has occurred it must be dawning even in the mind of government that it may be important to find out.

                I have no confidence that the work has ceased just because 3.5 million are dead. Government would need to stop funding it. Government is so inept that such funding would only cease after an inquiry.

                Is that true?

                I have only seen a few case studies. In each of those the virus was transmitted by a person who became sick within hours of the transmission and may have been feeling early symptoms at the time.

                Do asymptomatic people spread the disease? Could be. Or not?

(everyone stopped dying of annual repertory illness) 7.5 billion did not die. 100’s of millions where going to die from this most lethal, most contagious virus, a pandemic, according to the imperial model, did not happen is not a Pandemic.

                Number 4 expert on viruses Dr Fauci (1 B Gates, 2 Dr Tedros, 3 Dr M Gates) has stated many times A symptomatic do not drive epidemic’s. Many others have stated the same.

      Klem, that is a rather broad deflection from an article about a potentially willful release of a deadly virus.

      What if the article is truthful, is a rather large and cogent question don’t you think?

      And the US connection through deep state actors like Fauci should be part of that investigation.

        I consider Fauci to be one of many inside swamp creatures who tried as hard as they could to make Trump look bad. The biggest mistake Trump made was to trust this CCP sympathizer to act in the best interests of our country. The gushing embrace of Fauci by the current administration is the smoking gun that points to his role in the malfeasance that led to the election of an administration hell bent on destroying all that makes America great.

          The “lone wolf” is far and away the least likely scenario…slack biosecurity is by far the most likely.

          That said, any regime (and especially the CCP) will look at the situation and then ask “how can we USE this to serve OUR goals?” What then follows, if you think like the CCP does, is the situation we find ourselves in now.

      Everyone seems to forget that there were 2 labs doing bat Covid research in Wuhan. The other one, 100% military has live bats, is only a few hundred meters from that wet market and a researcher a while back got covered in infected bat blood. I seem to remember a few years ago that the animal keepers in this lab were found to be selling animals which had been used for research “put the back door” instead of incinerating them. I haven’t been able to find the reference for this – it WAS a few years back.

    Possibly the other significant story here is this :

    “…because DIA leadership believes there are Chinese spies or sources inside the FBI, CIA, and several other federal agencies.”

    Its appears its suspected there is significant chinese penetration of multiple organs of the US govt.

    It is also pragmatic to assume it appears that at least some foreign “students” may in fact be foreign intelligence agents.

    “A recent speech made to the CCP in Communist China speaks to the resolve and historical overview that exists in China with regard to not just invading the United States, but to decisively destroy the country and kill as many Americans as possible.”
    ,…………
    “The universal consensus is that this is authentic and does represent the majority philosophy of the CCP.”

    We have to apply discernment, then apply logic, while being keenly aware govts on both sides of the fence will eagerly plant propaganda to engineer a desired outcome.

    If as it appears, we have trans national globalists from both the West and China working together for a common agenda, we should be wary of what we read.

      This is an interesting quote from the Chinese minster of defence Chi Haotian … Written two decades ago.

      We spend all of our time living in free countries. We have never lived during a time of war or lived through currency collapses.

      Imagine you lived your entire life in China and you have a high ranking military position. You officially hate the US. Your country is xenophobic. How does your country ‘defeat’ the US? When evil started in China… it grew more powerful year after year, as China became wealthy and more powerful worldwide, because there are no checks and balances…. And because our countries/universities/media companies/news outlets can be bought and controlled.

      The attack was sneaky … the takeover gradual. Starting with the Obama administration. Covid was the start of worldwide organized censorship.

      It appears (as all of the observations/logic/analysis supports the assertion that covid was designed and released), China decided two decades ago, to develop biological weapons and to go to unrestricted warfare to defeat the US. China’s objective is to build a second China. As protests are not allowed, groups are not allowed to be formed to bring change, and free speech is banned in China… …..China has complete immunity protection against BLM, CAGW, green scams, or Covid issues, each of which have become a tactical weapon for China.

      https://thecommonsenseshow.com/activism-conspiracy-war/secret-leaked-speech-chinese-defense-minister-demonstrates-chinas-intent-destroy-america

      “In a secret speech given to high-level Communist Party cadres nearly two decades ago, Chinese Defense Minister Gen. Chi Haotian explained a long-range plan for ensuring a Chinese national renaissance.

      He said there were three vital issues that must be grasped. The first was the issue of living space—because China is severely overpopulated and China’s environment is deteriorating. The second issue, therefore, was that the Communist Party must teach the Chinese people to “go out.” By this, Chi meant the conquest of new lands, in which a “second China” could be built by “colonization.” From this, arose the third vital issue: the “issue of America.”

      Chi warned his listeners: “This appears to be shocking, but the logic is actually very simple. … [China is] in fundamental conflict with the Western strategic interest.” Therefore, the United States would never allow China to seize other countries to build a second China. The United States stands in China’s way.

      Chi explained the problem as follows: “Would the United States allow us to go out to gain new living space? First, if the United States is firm in blocking us, it is hard for us to do anything significant to Taiwan, Vietnam, India, or even Japan, [so] how much more living space can we get? Very trivial! Only countries like the United States, Canada, and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass colonization.”

      “We are not as foolish as to want to perish together with America by using nuclear weapons,” the general said. “Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves.”

      The answer is found in biological weapons.

      “Of course,” he added, “we have not been idle. In the past years, we have seized the opportunity to master weapons of this kind.”

    Regarding the release of the virus, one thing is clear and that is the timing of the release was perfect to derail Trump.

    In fact the timing was just too perfect, with Trump resetting the trade imbalance and looking a certain for 4 more years by creating a huge resurgence in US power and conservative democratic rule that would have restored the dominance of the free world. And when you consider who benefited from the virus that derailed Trump you come up with 2 winners, the Marxist Democrats pushing for a reset to green socialism and the Chinese, who will now dominate the global scene with so many debtor nations they can “belt” into compliance on their “one road”. In the aftermath of the virus we see the Democrats and the Chinese both singing from the same hymn book, that the virus was from a natural origin and then working with big tech to make sure any alternate narrative was cancelled. This is also where Biden fits into the picture. The Democrats had a whole host of potential mentally capable leaders, but they chose an obvious failing dementia case, with full knowledge that he wouldn’t last one year, let alone four and set up the rigged election using mail-in votes courtesy of the virus lockdown. This is the part that really is a worry, because we see the giggling Kamala whenever she has a camera pointed her way. She is obviously part of this plot but it’s hard to see her as ringleader and she really only looks like a marketing idea used to secure minority votes. On centre stage she looks about as hopeless as Biden with his dementia.

    So what comes next when Biden gets ousted in the near future ?. My guess is that Kamala will choose a new vice President that is the real ringleader and intended Democrats President, someone very unpopular that would struggle to get votes. We need to stay tuned here because looking at Biden’s inability to remember the difference between Syria and Libya it’s obvious he not sure which planet he’s living on and his days are very numbered.

          According to the US constitution, a succeeding VP who becomes president can then appoint a new VP. This has already occurred when Nixon resigned after Watergate and VP Gerald Ford became president appointing Nelson Rockefeller as his VP replacement. This process most certainly is codified into the constitution as Gerald Ford proved back in 1974. My guess is that the new VP will be a very radical Marxist, which could include Pelosi or Warren. AOC is too young as the constitution requires a minimum age of 35 for a person to become President or VP.

    While I can believe that the virus was a weapon, this defection seems a bit too convenient for the intelligence agencies.
    I could easily believe that this is another psy-op to distract from the conspirators in the US gov who stole the election by purposely misleading the People regarding the virus, and are continuing to do so.

    If Dong had evidence of Chinese complicity in the theft of the election for the Democrats, would it ever see the light of day?

      In response to John Galt. The US is more than the Democratic party of America. The world is more than the US.

      The Democratic party/Biden is rapidly losing support/trust of ‘Democrats’ and independents, in the US, because it is led by an old man who has dementia. And there is now the start of inflation, after super thoughtless over spending. Why is the Democratic party led by a person that has dementia?

      This is planned ‘corruption’/institutional madness, with a not so sneaky purpose to defeat the US… Not a swamp. Special interest groups controlled Washington. What China did is get control (starting in the Obama presidency) of the US and world institutions like the CIA, FBI, CDC, Democratic party, and so on. China took over the corrupt things/institutions using sneaky tactics to place Chinese controlled operatives in key positions in US institutions/companies/boards. On and on.

      What we need now is heroes. People who stand up for honesty, truth, kindness, good, humanity. This is not politics. There is no side to covid, the deadly super contagious virus. Covid is an evil thing. It should not have been created. There will be more covid like deadly viruses and more deeds, if action is not taken now. Lies work until a big lie is found.

      This is sort of a war. A sneaky war where one side attacks (using sneaky tactics like CAGW, covid, historical racial conflicts, open borders, internet censorship, takeover of Democratic party…. all of which China has immunity from) and hides the attack. That is called a cold war. Cold wars are real wars.

      China officially hates the US. China uses/used that created hate to deflect criticism from their people concerning the CCP.

      China is stinking corrupt, no unions, no protests allowed, no letters to the editor, or campaigns to bring any change allowed. In manufacturing cities people work 10 hour days, six days a week, and live in tiny apartments in 20 story buildings that are 2 meters apart. The tiny apartments are dark because of the building spacing and are dark because the air pollution which is unbelievable. Suicides happen weekly as young people jump out of their tiny apartment windows. No protection for the average people, in China who work like slaves. There are now more billionaires in China, then there are in the US.

      This is a game changer, if the Dong evidence summarized below is real. The US cannot defend itself from cold war attacks, if the US & World media/Democratic party hides the fact that China made and released covid, as part of a very well funded plot to weaken the US.

      “Not only does Dong have detailed information about China’s special weapons systems, the Chinese military’s operation of the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the origins of SARS-CoV-2, and the Chinese government’s assets and sources within the United States; Dong has extremely embarrassing and damaging information about our intelligence community and government officials in the ‘terabytes of data’ he’s provided to the DIA.”

      To explain the breadth of the data Dong reportedly turned over to the feds, a single terabyte is approximately the equivalent of 75 million pages — or nearly 19 million documents. The potential scope of such a cache of documents is breathtaking to consider. According to RedState, the data includes:

      – Early pathogenic studies of the virus we now know as SARS-CoV-2

      – Models of predicted COVID-19 spread and damage to the U.S. and the world

      – Financial records detailing which exact organizations and governments funded the research on SARS-CoV-2 and other biological warfare research
      – Names of U.S. citizens who provide intel to China

      – Names of Chinese spies working in the U.S. or attending U.S. universities

      – Financial records showing U.S. businessmen and public officials who’ve received money from the Chinese government

      – Details of meetings U.S. government officials had (perhaps unwittingly) with Chinese spies and members of Russia’s SVR

      – How the Chinese government gained access to a CIA communications system, leading to the death of dozens of Chinese people who were working with the CIA

    This is hardly a surprise. The CCP has been doing this for decades.

    They’ve also been experimenting on bio-engineering with the PRC military for many years. Building soldiers immune to bio weapons and (at the very least) doing the “Super-Soldiers” thing like The X-Files prophesied in their latter seasons.

    They are, and always have been, an amoral entity. NOTHING is off-limits for them.

    My dad was stationed on a minesweeper after the war. He once told me he saw 10s of thousands of bloated bodies floating into the sea from the Yangtze River.

    They were born in atrocities and still work in this manner.

    To fight an enemy like this you must do likewise if you expect even a chance to win.

          As Ive said before, the Sa tanic cabals ( globalists ) who are running the CCP have thier amoral belief system exposed perfectly via the CCP. This is what youre dealing with, but its a cancer through western leaders and billionaires in western countries, just well hidden.

          Watching what appears to be deliberately inflicted pain and suffering on the Victoristanis, you see the cabal belief system being worked out and what appears to be the brutalizing an australian population.

            The argument about moral law must be followed up with a clear demonstration as to why we feel we should be moral. The basis for morality is the concept of freedom. Freedom is the ability to give your own law to your will. Our will is determined by something outside of ourselves. We use reason to determine our own law for ourselves. In other words, we are free. A choice you make.

            Humans are spiritual first, physical second***. It is the spiritual that identifies the “fully” in “fully human”. Wiki is a poor, materialistic reductionist teacher.

            Morality is not extrinsic to spirit.

            As one or two other commenters here know, it was the Insane Left-corrupted CIA (and their ideological fellows throughout the Deep State and political parties) that enabled, and thus actually was responsible for, the covid19 “pandemic” in the US. Would a competent intelligence community have allowed the attack (much less, participated in the political treason to which it has been put to use)? And that in turn means the entire Western Intelligence community is equally criminal (treasonous). Biden is, as I have stressed before, a mad Mob boss (the Insane Left and Globalist Mob), nothing more. Nobody would have installed him as President of the US, if they had anyone more competent; the Insane Left has no legitimate competence to govern, only to grab control. All of the “wokeness” propaganda you see in the media, particularly the entertainment media, is just a smokescreen. And 80+ million American voters have seen through that, and voted for Trump in 2020. No matter what people do now, it is all over for the Insane Left in the end; all they have left to hope for is the Armageddon, as it were, of all of their dreams of punishing America and the world for their own paltry mis-understandings, of everything…

    * We allow our cities to be torched and looted with few repercussions.
    * We’re tearing down our history, our culture, and our traditions in the name of progressivism.
    * We invite seemingly anyone who wants to enter the country illegally to take our jobs, receive public services, and drag down wages.
    * Our national debt reaches into the stratosphere while politicians go whistling past the graveyard.
    * We abort the innocent and defenseless while vigorously defending the guiltiest among us.
    * We scare our children into radicalism with tales of impending doom due to climate changes that are as old as the Earth.
    * We’re wrecking entire industries to “protect the Earth” while propping up those same endeavors for our enemies.
    * We deny biological realities and allow men to use women’s facilities and participate in women’s activities, provided that they “self-identify” as women.
    * We subject the military to ideological litmus tests.
    * We fraudulently change election results while casting those who push for transparency as “conspiracy advocates” and add their names to a list of domestic terrorists.
    * We allow the government to censor those who oppose the lunacy that passes for public policy.
    * We teach dependency and hatred at many school districts across the country, and within our colleges and universities.
    * We accuse, disarm, and punish the law-abiding while acquitting the guilty.
    * We deny science in the name of science.

    From https://www.dnaindia.com/analysis/report-gravitas-exclusive-why-did-wuhan-lab-take-database-of-22000-virus-samples-offline-2893642 Dated June 5, 2021.
    China’s ‘Bat Woman’ has a lot of explaining to do here. Reports say the Wuhan lab had access to some 22,000 virus samples and sequences and all of these have now been taken offline.
    The WHO investigators saw no problem with this, the fact that these samples were taken offline. The ‘Bat Woman’ Shi claimed that the database was taken down because of hacking attempts during the pandemic.

    Sounds fair enough until you hit this little gem …

    But here’s the thing – the database was actually taken down in September 2019. This was three months before China officially declared an outbreak. This was six months before it was called a pandemic.
    Why did they delete the virus database in September 2019? Here’s another question that they failed to answer. What is the Wuhan lab’s relationship with the Chinese military? Was the Wuhan lab working on projects for the PLA?

    As your rumor piece says here “The claims are that he has brought with him terabytes of data or “nearly 19 million documents”. It’s potentially dynamite — allegedly containing studies of Covid, forecasts of spread in the West, and names of Chinese spies in the US with details of payments.”

    Hopefully he has the database with him as this would readily show what the Wuhan Lab was doing and how far it got.

      Who just paid $500,000 to buy a painting from novice artist Hunter Biden? We don’t know.

      Art dealer Georges Berges says the names of various buyers will be kept confidential. But Hunter’s art is being priced between $75,000 and half a million – an impressive sum for a neophyte, particularly one with no formal training.

      It doesn’t require a military response. There is an analogy, the Palestinians send incendiary balloons over enemy territory to start bushfires and the Israeli blast them with rockets in retaliation.

      Commercial compensation would be appropriate in Australia’s case.

        BS el gordo. The terrorist “Palestinians” deserve whatever military response they invite. What is remarkable is that the Israelis are so restrained. What other country, after being bombarded with thousands of randomly guided rockets launched specifically into civilian areas, would provide such a restrained response which also involved giving courtesy phone calls hours in advance for the occupants of the terrorist occupied buildings to leave before the Israelis destroyed the buildings with precision guided munitions?

        And you make it seem like a playful prank that the terrorists are launching both incindary and explosive laden balloons into Israel. How would you like them dropped on you? They can cause tremendous damage including killing people and burning down forests and grain fields the Israelis have planted. In fact, about ten years ago I went as a volunteer to Israrl and helped replant a 40 year old pine forest your beloved terrorists had burned down.

        Really, I am sick of all the Leftist BS. Due to the antisemitism of the Left, now well documented within US Democrats, UK Labour, Australian Labor and Greens etc, Israel is the only country on the planet not allowed to defend itself against attack.

        As Golda Meir said (paraphrased):

        If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more ‎violence. If the Jews put ‎down their weapons ‎today, there would be no ‎more Israel

        (Golda Meir, paraphrased by Benjamin Netanyahu)

          Maybe that was a poor analogy, WW3 has begun and we have to find a way to survive.

          Here in Canada, recently an MP quit the Green party because they weren’t anti-Isreal enough. She moved to the slightly-less left NDP party but they would not accept her because she was too anti-Isreal for them, so she moved to the equally Left Trudeau Liberal party. Justin accepted her with open arms.

          What is it with the Left’s hatred of Isreal, and why do Jews insist on voting left?

          I don’t get it.

      A very good question Hanrahan.

      Two books come to mind. The first is the Art of War which among other things advises not to go to war unless you are certain to win. The second is 1984 which ends with Winston Smith realising at the very end that he really did love Big Brother.

    The greatest threat to mankind in the 21st Century is global warming? How many useful idiots in the Chinese backed UN/WHO have been complicit in this phase of the 100 year plan to become the only world superpower by 2050? Meanwhile the West is told by it’s media via unresearched press releases that we need to accept ‘outages’ in technology as a price with banks, corporations, information all crowding into a small number of cloud storage spaces. Expect ‘outages’ in energy as a price for correcting our wrongs with past fuels which produced this society. Expect ‘short term draconian emergency powers’ to protect us from a virus with a 0.0000567% kill rate. Expect pushback from Marxist extremists for supposed ‘systemic white privilege’ abuses against races, all of whom have had equal rights and privileges for decades. All that by using the lazy fourth estate who take the individual incident presented to them as an example of systemic – insert racial abuse, climate catastrophe, gender abuse, here – name another news outlet as the source, rinse, repeat and keep the West arguing amongst themselves.
    Add in the stupidity of Americans nominating a political hack with cognitive issues and a VP who their own party said was so toxic she was culled from preselection second in the Primaries and the Chinese have their plan (keep the West occupied with at least 2-4 internal issues agitated by useful idiots) well and truly in motion to become the world superpower before the planned 2050.
    All that without having to fire a shot! Knowing full well there would be defections, recent reports of increasing military intakes and strengthening military security indicates they expected Dongs revelations to be released eventually. Sadly our Western media’s cancel culture propaganda machine has made all this a surprise to the majority in our society.

        Only a month or so away from Schwabs WEF build back better summit in Switzerland, I’m sure they’ll have a plan where we can live happier existences not owning anything but renting from their approved woke corporations, approved energy providers and borrow that rental fee from his central banking system. All accompanied by the WHO’s 81 steps in 6 concrete areas for a cleaner, greener world that WHO CEO Tedros was announcing they worked on during ‘the worst medical emergency the globe has seen in a century’!
        The only hiccup was having to have this Marxist global warming summit moved to July/Aug because Europe was enveloped in the coldest winter in half a century and the delegates wouldn’t be able to navigate through metres of snow to get in the door. They apparently wouldn’t have had any problem with the hypocrisy of telling governments to devote trillions to David Blood & Al Gore renewables to stop the warming that the solar minimum had already taken care of! No surprise we can’t read any of that in mainstream trashmedia!

    Excellent commentary on China and it’s aggression. Another sinister question is why are so many in the western media willing to be China’s useful idiots. Western media is supposed to hold our governments accountable and report truthfully to the public that elects our governments. It would seem the media is as seriously compromised and infiltrated by spies and Chinese money. Indeed, the question needs to be asked about why so many in our media are willing to cause irreparable damage to their own society and people? Perhaps instead of just ring local members we should be ringing news editors and their CEO and ask that question. We could start with asking Ita about the damage the ABC is causing by constantly apologising to the CCP.

    The really terrifying thing is that with a weak, demented, US President Imposter, and a corrupt pro-Chicomm maladministration behind him, there is no one on earth with the willingness or even military power to stand up to them.

    The Chicomms are also busily establishing relations with the non-Israel Middle East who, due to Biden’s anti-energy policies, the US will again become dependent upon for oil, reversing Trump’s achievements of making the US energy independent.

    Also, the Left caused the removal of the relatively benign colonial powers from Africa, who have now been replaced by much more ruthless Chi-comms. Under who were the Africans better off? China now dominates Africa.

    The Biden Maladministration has also permitted Europe to become dependent upon Russian gas rather than importing it from the US.

    It’s not going to end well. Conservatives need to start standing up to the Left. Question and resist each one of their malelovent moves.

      The overt invasion of Europe has been obvious now for several decades.

      The “Europe” that was “built back” by the hard work, thrift and self denial of survivors and offspring, has been reallocated. Ha ha.

      Incremental imposts have eventually created an irreversible mess that must make the “original builders and inhabitants” very distressed.

      Nobody else in the other nominally democratic nations like the USA, Canada, New Zealand should be complacent, the disease is present and there seems to be no vaccine available that can right things.

      The destruction of all that was built over the last seventy five years will be noticed and acted upon.

      To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction and it’s not far off.

    No news nowadays can be taken at face value, but news that add pieces to the puzzle should not be ignored. While I am of strong belief that assumptions are the cancer of the society yet with so many pieces of the puzzle evident, this rumour does say a lot.

    A lot will have shot themselves in the foot.

    Truth can never be hidden.

    Chinese deflectors are the sign that Chinese people have had enough of CCP. There will be more.

    It exposes that “muted” problem in the US just a crack more.

    The swamp is big and this will only dilute it but there is more. One by one this evil needs be clean out globally. This should not be allowed to derail focus of main manipulators such as Faucci and his mafia throughout the world.

    Intuition speaks no words but makes one look in the right direction. Keep it sharp and keep it simple, the brands of communism exist at plain sight, they wait till they gain numbers, then they start exerting control. Like Dan in Victoria and his mafia flagbearers.

    “Rumour” and “Ritual” ; two words which I am sick and tired of hearing. There are always “rumours” over the whole political spectrum (yadayadayada)…believe what you will. As for “ritual”, the left use this to try and say that right-wing forces such as QAnon use rituals to control the world. What a lot of rubbish…ritualistic behaviour is evident in all forms of society (ie: TRIBALISM).

    The gross mismanagement of the false Covid-19 pandemic since January 2020 cannot be simply ascribed to gross incompetence by government and health authorities.

    I knew about the Dr Fauci involvement about one year ago – he originated the gain-of-function virus research and offshored it to Wuhan when it was declared illegal in the USA. But the lockdown scam is global-scale – much bigger than just Dr Fauci.

    A year ago I concluded that the Covid-19 virus originated from the Wuhan lab and not at the wet market. The only question then was “did the virus jump from the Wuhan lab, or was it pushed?”

    BASED ON ALL THE DYSTOPIAN EVENTS SINCE THEN, THE RATIONAL CONCLUSION IS THAT THE VIRUS DID NOT ESCAPE, BUT WAS PUSHED OUT OF THE LAB – DELIBERATELY RELEASED FOR POLITICAL AND FINANCIAL GAIN.

      I posted this on this site at the end of March or early April 2020. The date on my word doc is 29/3/2020

      Paper published in the Journal Nature in 2015, shows scientists did in fact engineer a Corona Virus, though a disclaimer now added in 2020 states that there is no evidence that the virus was engineered (below), yet this very paper is about the engineering of the virus.
      Editors’ note, March 2020: We are aware that this story is being used as the basis for unverified theories that the novel coronavirus causing COVID-19 was engineered. There is no evidence that this is true; scientists believe that an animal is the most likely source of the coronavirus.
      The researchers created a chimaeric virus,(see definition below) made up of a surface protein of SHC014 and the backbone of a SARS virus that had been adapted to grow in mice and to mimic human disease. The chimaera infected human airway cells — proving that the surface protein of SHC014 has the necessary structure to bind to a key receptor on the cells and to infect them. It also caused disease in mice, but did not kill them.

      https://www.nature.com/news/engineered-bat-virus-stirs-debate-over-risky-research-1.18787
      An article from science direct.
      https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0166354220300528
      Dr Shi Zhengli, Wuhan institute of Virology. Studied the Corana virus specifically the Gain of Function of the CoV at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill in 2014
      Gain of Function Wiki definition.
      (Gain-of-function mutations, also called activating mutations, change the gene product such that its effect gets stronger (enhanced activation) or even is superseded by a different and abnormal function. When the new allele is created, a heterozygote containing the newly created allele as well as the original will express the new allele; genetically this defines the mutations as dominant phenotypes. Several of Muller’s morphs correspond to gain of function, including hypermorph and neomorph. In December 2017, the U.S. government lifted a temporary ban implemented in 2014 that banned federal funding for any new “gain-of-function” experiments that enhance pathogens “such as Avian influenza, SARS and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome or MERS viruses.”[61])
      “From 2014, Shi Zhengli was the recipient of a number of US Government grants as well as grants from the National Basic Research program of China, the Chinese Academy of Science, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and from the Strategic Priority Research Program of Chinese Academy of Sciences, to assist in funding research into coronaviruses.”
      “Using the SARS-CoV reverse genetics system2, we generated and characterized a chimeric virus expressing the spike of bat coronavirus SHC014 in a mouse-adapted SARS-CoV backbone. The results indicate that group 2b viruses encoding the SHC014 spike in a wild-type backbone can efficiently use multiple orthologs of the SARS receptor human angiotensin converting enzyme II (ACE2), replicate efficiently in primary human airway cells and achieve in vitro titers equivalent to epidemic strains of SARS-CoV. Additionally, in vivo experiments demonstrate replication of the chimeric virus in mouse lung with notable pathogenesis. Evaluation of available SARS-based immune-therapeutic and prophylactic modalities revealed poor efficacy; both monoclonal antibody and vaccine approaches failed to neutralize and protect from infection with CoVs using the novel spike protein.”

      UNITED STATES SENATE TODAY ANNOUNCED: ‘CORONA IS A LIE’! THE MEDIA IS COVERING UP THE TRUTH.
      https://www.bitchute.com/video/UIi6h8B9PYyB/

      It is official. The United States Senate today announced: ‘Corona is a lie’! The media is covering up the truth. Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Media, the WHO and other traitors will be all held accountable.

      Told you so 15 months ago.– on 21&22March2020.

      There was no justification for the Covid-19 lockdowns – all we needed to do was over-protect the very elderly and infirm.

      Early treatment with HCQ (and even better with Ivermectin) would have saved lives – why were these cheap, effective, approved treatments vilified and effectively banned?

      I also predict that the Covid-19 “vaccines” within ~2 year clearly will have caused more harm than good – hope to be wrong, rarely am. Do NOT inject your kids.

        Allan, The video doesn’t play well enough to watch for me. Which Senator said something? (I assume it wasn’t “The Senate” that declared anything. Please write accurately and specifically).

        The scandal about IVM and HCQ and Big Pharma’s involvement has been discussed for more than a year here on this blog, but saying “corona is a lie” is too ambiguously vague to be useful. It sweeps everything under one rug in ways you probably don’t mean to. There have been probably a 100 million PCR tests — are they all wrong, or just some of them? IF so, which ones, which countries, which labs? Obvious the 10% with long covid are struggling with something real. As are the mass graves of India, Iran, and Brazil. 80% of the Japanese want to stop the games.

        Covid’s is almost certainly a bioweapon which may also be designed to reduce interferon signalling, damage vascular epitheliums, hide in protected cells, and possibly also to get around CD8 tCell activity. That’s the kind of detail we need to talk about.

        Thanks with your help in protesting the scandals of Covid, best pick targets carefully. And be aware there are vested interests on both sides of this debate sending out propaganda to scare people and ALSO to hide the real threats here.

        President Xi is hoping conservatives will say say “it’s just the flu” and to help this virus spread (I know thats not what you said. I’m just pointing out that unlike the Climate Debate, there is junk on both extremes). Big pharma wants the virus to spread or they would have lobbied to close the borders. No spread = no need to vaccinate.

        PS: Protecting the vulnerable is harder than you think. Many suggest that but apart from using IVM, I have not heard a realistic plan to do it. One the borders were stupidly left open, if we don’t lockdown, do we lock carers in Aged care homes for a FIFO kind of basis? With two week quarantines before 3 months shifts? What 20 – 50 year olds would want to do that?And what do we do with the 5 – 24% death rate in people over 70 (and men over 85, found in the UK with their variant)? Do we deprive people over 70 from seeing people under 70. Surely not? Do we lock up cancer patients, people with high blood pressure, obesity? Clearly that’s not a future you want either.

        The two things that protect the vulnerable, and all our civilization and economy are hard borders and antivirals. These things are worth fighting for. This is what we both want. Everything else is a distraction that helps the democrats.

          Hi Jo,
          In the first paragraph I quoted the subtitle that accompanied that video – that is all. It should have been in “quotes”.
          The important conclusion from the video is these Senators are finally recognizing what was obvious to some 15 months ago – and they are acting on that information.
          Were you unable to view the video or did you find it insufficiently clear?

          Here is another source of the same 15-minute video with accompanying commentary:
          https://www.blackburn.senate.gov/2021/6/blackburn-leads-press-conference-demanding-answers-from-big-tech

          WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) led her colleagues at a press conference to discuss how Big Tech censored the origins of COVID-19. Senator Blackburn was joined by Senators Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), and Roger Wicker (R-Miss.).

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYDN8gwVfdM&t=1s

          BIG TECH CANNOT GO UNCHECKED

          “We know that Facebook recently reversed their decision on taking down any kind of information that said it came from the lab in Wuhan… YouTube had previously announced it would ban any content that contradicted the Beijing-run and China-funded World Health Organization… YouTube even took down a video from some medical doctors who were questioning the value of these lockdowns.”

          “Big tech has really stepped over the line on this one. We all have suggestions of how we as a Senate should move forward and things that we should do to make certain that this never happens to the American people.”

          DR. FAUCI NEEDS TO STEP ASIDE

          “I think it is appropriate that Dr. Fauci step aside from his responsibilities at the NIAID and that he make himself available to Congress to find out exactly how was he in cahoots with Mark Zuckerberg and big tech. What transpired there? Did American people hear some truth but not the whole truth?”

          Hi again Jo,

          Here is an interview with my new friend Lt Col David Redman, former Head of Alberta’s Emergency Management Agency. I have enjoyed several long conversations with Lt Col Redman, who very ably managed several major disasters in Alberta. When Covid-19 hit, Alberta’s Emergency Management Plan was tossed aside and a young medical officer put in charge, with disastrous results. Circa March-April 2020 Lt Col Redman presented a competent Covid-19 Emergency Management Plan to our Alberta government, which was ignored.

          The Covid-19 lockdowns and other measures are estimated to have caused 10-100 times more harm to society than the Covid-19 disease. Redman is now preparing material for a charge of criminal negligence against our government authorities across Canada.

          You can Google a number of more recent interviews with Lt Col Redman.

          https://wattsupwiththat.com/2020/12/06/breaking-news-chinese-covid-19-coverup-documents-released/#comment-3142008

          In this interview, Lieutenant-Colonel David Redman (Canadian Army ret.), a recognized emergency planning veteran, is making the same recommendations that I published on 21&22March2020. Overprotect the elderly and infirm and do NOT lockdown businesses or the under-65 low-risk population. Governments had competent plans to deal with a pandemic but panicked and threw out the plans when Covid-19 hit.

          The colossal incompetence and harm caused by the mass lockdown of individuals and businesses could not have been more wrong, or more incompetent.

          The key question is
          WHY DID THE PANICKY LOCKDOWNS HAPPEN? WHO INSTIGATED THE ABANDONMENT OF THE GOVERNMENT’S PANDEMIC PLANS AND PUT MEDICAL OFFICERS IN CHARGE OF EVERYTHING? MEDICAL OFFICERS DON’T HAVE THE SKILLS TO SEE AND MANAGE THE BIG PICTURE. TO THEM, MASS LOCKDOWNS ARE THE ONLY ANSWER – AND THAT WAS NEVER THE CORRECT SOLUTION.

          THE LOCKDOWNS DID FAR MORE HARM THAN GOOD – THE LOCKDOWNS WERE A SOCIETAL AND ECONOMIC DISASTER.

          Regards, Allan MacRae

          “EVERY STORE AND SCHOOL SHOULD BE OPEN.” CONFRONTING THE PANDEMIC WITH CONFIDENCE
          Peter Shawn Taylor
          December 7, 2020
          https://c2cjournal.ca/2020/12/every-store-and-school-should-be-open-confronting-the-pandemic-with-confidence/
          [excerpts]

          “Remember those anxious days last January when news of a deadly new virus first appeared out of China and then, like an avalanche gathering speed, spread to Italy, Spain and France? Remember how no one seemed to know what to do as the contagion made its way to our shores? If only our governments had a plan – a plan to arrest the disease and protect us from the collateral damage of our own clumsy responses. Drawing on decades of high-level experience in military and civil emergency planning and preparation, Lieutenant-Colonel David Redman explains what went wrong with Canada’s planning process, how the errors heightened a tidal wave of fear, and what it will take to rebuild confidence in government.

          Unfortunately, no one in charge seems interested in hearing Redman’s advice. A series of detailed plans he offered to Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, and later to all the other premiers through the Council of the Federation, have either been completely ignored or passed off as old news. Rather than let a lifetime’s experience go to waste, C2C Journal’s Peter Shawn Taylor sat down with Redman last week to learn the basic rules of emergency planning, the many catastrophic mistakes our governments have made to date and how to shift the focus of Canada’s Covid-19 response from fear to confidence before it’s too late.

          Governments took every plan they’d ever written and threw them all out the window. No one followed the process. Instead they panicked, put the doctors in change and hid for three months.

          When an emergency happens, you need a process to create a plan, and then you need to follow that plan. Since the 1950s every government in this country has had a set of emergency plans: what to do in the case of a forest fire, flood, dangerous goods accident or pandemic etc. These are all updated regularly. Alberta’s pandemic plan was last updated in 2014.

          But what happened in the middle of March when Covid-19 appeared on our shores after wreaking havoc in China, Italy, Spain and France? Governments took every plan they’d ever written and threw them all out the window. No one followed the process. They panicked, put the doctors in change and hid for three months. And now, having made that mistake, we can’t get out of it.

          The problem with our Covid-19 response is that power has been placed in the wrong place. Why? Because governments adopted the wrong mission statement. The first principle of war is the selection and maintenance of the aim. If you miss on that, things are going to go very poorly. Across the country it appears to me that our aim has been to minimize the number of people who catch Covid-19. That is repeatedly reflected in the media. The daily case count is the most important thing in every daily newscast and every news story. It’s all the politicians seem to talk about. This is wrong.

          Our aim must be to minimize the impact of Covid-19 on the province as a whole. Not the case count. Not even the death count. Here are the four goals taken directly from Alberta’s 2014 pandemic plan:
          1. Control the spread of disease and reduce illness and death by providing access to appropriate prevention measures, care and treatment.
          2. Mitigate social disruption by ensuring continuity and recovery of critical services.
          3. Minimize adverse economic impacts.
          4. Support an efficient and effective recovery.
          Note that one of the objectives is to minimize illness and death of the newly emerging disease or threat. But that’s just one of four objectives. Equally important is to ensure that we do not neglect – intentionally or unintentionally – any other pre-existing diseases or conditions. The overall aim of the plan is to minimize both the impact of the new disease, and the effects arising from the response to it, on the entire jurisdiction. And then to get back to normal as quickly as possible.

          The fact remains: medical officers of health should never be in charge in any pandemic. This goes right back to the operational planning process. The health care system is the subject matter agency. It deals with operating the hospital system, ensuring health care providers are appropriately trained, ensuring the public is given proper information about the disease and, ultimately, distributing a vaccine. If we were facing a forest fire, Wildfire Operations would be the subject matter agency. It would fight the fire. But it would not be in charge of the entire government response.

          Everything else must be handled by a cabinet committee or an emergency management organization that can take into account the impact of the pandemic on the rest of society. Why would anyone put a medical officer of health in charge of an entire province? What do they know about a meat packing plant? Or the water supply system? Or a power grid? Nothing. Their advice is critical – but it should deal exclusively with medical issues. They do not know how to run a province.

          In March, April and May, however, we saw provincial leaders hand their chief medical officers the keys to their jurisdictions. The result was lockdowns across the country, of varying intensity. Now, the news media believe public health should be in charge all the time. And that a lockdown is always the best solution.

          Since the middle of March, we had access to reliable statistics from China, Spain, Italy, France that showed quite clearly 70 percent of all deaths arising from Covid-19 were of people over the age of 80. Another 18 percent were 70 to 79 years old. Only three-and-a-half percent were under the age of 60. And less than 1 percent of the people who’d died up to that point didn’t have at least one pre-existing underlying medical complication. This wasn’t September. This was March. We knew very quickly what Covid-19 was doing – it was killing old people who had severe comorbidities. The immediate response should have been: how do we protect those people?

          As we say in the military, an 80 percent solution applied with vigour immediately is better than a 100 percent solution applied too late. What holds in a battle holds in pandemics too. First, we should have identified every concentration of vulnerable people, including all nursing homes, hospitals and palliative care homes. Then comprehensive options should have been developed to quarantine both the residents of these facilities and the staff who supported them. Support and relief systems for these staff and surge capacity should have been discussed back in March. Instead each new outbreak in a seniors home seemed to come as a surprise.

          Quarantines are a powerful tool. But they need to be used appropriately. It is outrageous to hear doctors say we need to lock down healthy people for no reason. Our medical and education systems are overwhelmed, both emotionally and physically, because workers are being sent home for 14 days when they’re perfectly healthy. One person with Covid-19 walks into a hospital and we send 20 staff home. Now everyone else has to work overtime or double shifts.

          Let me be clear: I don’t believe we should ever have locked down anything. Every store and school should be open. If you are not afraid of catching Covid-19 because your medical system is robust and we have protected our seniors and the death count is low, then the pandemic is essentially over. Instead we have governments in some provinces telling people they can’t buy big-screen TVs, even though they’ve already mandated that watching TV is about your only legal form of entertainment.

          The long-term impact of our response will be felt for years in societal breakdown, mental health problems and the increasing prevalence of other diseases. We are seeing more people dying of cancer and heart disease. People are so afraid of catching Covid-19 that they’re choosing to not go to the emergency room or to see their doctor. The overdose rate is up dramatically in British Columbia since the start of Covid-19. Suicides have increased. Fear is a terrible mental health amplifier.”

          Jo you wrote:
          Covid’s is almost certainly a bioweapon which may also be designed to reduce interferon signalling, damage vascular epitheliums, hide in protected cells, and possibly also to get around CD8 tCell activity. That’s the kind of detail we need to talk about.

          These medical details are your expertise, not mine – I have no opinion. I was focused on the respiratory aspects of the illness – I thought that was the primary cause-of-Covid-death.

          My focus has been on limiting total damage to society. For example, just the increase in opioid overdose deaths in Alberta since the lockdown started is about equal to total Covid-19 deaths here. Average age of Covid-19 deaths here is ~82, and a average age of opioid deaths is ~30. Years-of-life-lost just from opioid overdoses totaled about 25,000 to end 2020. Many of these were probably suicide-by-drug-od’s.

          Some people are fragile – take away their jobs, their daily routines, their friends and families and they fall apart. Destroy their businesses, separate them from their families, and they never recover. We have a mental health crisis here now, from which we will not fully recover. That is what the needless general lockdowns did – and they did NOT stop the spread of the Covid-19 illness. A total debacle.

          I am pleased that you say “Covid is almost certainly a bioweapon”- you and I are probably in the small minority who hold this view now, but the majority will join us in time.

          I was pleased to hear the USA Senators’ comments as referenced above – better late than never. The active collaboration of Facebook, Youtube and Twitter in suppressing vital Covid information is also finally being recognized. Long overdue.

              Thank you Jo. I think you are onto something – intuitively, why would the Chinese deliberately release a bio-weapon that is so mild – there are probably some extra “bells and whistles” that we will learn more about in time.
              In the past, I’ve had the same opinion as these 19 medical people, summarized below.
              I allow that there is more to learn.

              19 WORLD DOCTORS WARN: DO NOT TAKE COVID-19 SHOTS
              Published March 18, 2021
              Video: https://rumble.com/veseil-world-doctors-warn-do-not-take-mrna-shot.html
              For more details on the Scamdemic go to nojabforme.info and cosmicfact.com

              IN SUMMARY, THESE DOCTORS STATE:
              The Covid-19 was a fake pandemic – there was no dangerous Covid-19 emergency.
              Total deaths in many countries are not different from previous years.
              The PCR tests have been misused. As result, Covid-19 cases have been greatly exaggerated.
              The Covid-19 lockdown and related distancing etc were NOT necessary.
              The harm done by the lockdowns etc have caused much more harm than the Covid-19 illness.
              There are effective conventional treatments for Covid-19.
              The Covid-19 “vaccines” are experimental and are not proven safe or effective and might be very dangerous – NOT justified.
              The principle of “informed consent” was not applied – people who were injected were not properly informed of risks.
              These Covid-19 injections can cause a range of severe reactions, including the inability to bear healthy children – potentially disastrous.
              These doctors will NOT take the Covid-19 injections and will NOT recommend them to their patents.

              I published most of these conclusions long ago, some as early as 21March2020.

              In my recent paper, I noted that there is no “death bump” to mid-2020 in either Alberta or Canada (or the USA) – that is, no significant increase in total deaths from all causes over the trend of the previous seven years.

              That means there was no significant deadly Covid-19 “epidemic” in Alberta or Canada or the USA to mid-2020, and no justification for the panic, the lockdowns of the workforce and students, and the destruction of our economy – just as I correctly published more than one year ago, on 21&22 March 2020:

              21March2020 – Allan MacRae
              LET’S CONSIDER AN ALTERNATIVE APPROACH: Isolate people over sixty-five and those with poor immune systems and return to business-as-usual for people under sixty-five. This will allow “herd immunity” to develop much sooner and older people will thus be more protected AND THE ECONOMY WON’T CRASH.
              22March2020 – Allan MacRae
              This full-lockdown scenario is especially hurting service sector businesses and their minimum-wage employees – young people are telling me they are “financially under the bus”. The young are being destroyed to protect us over-65’s. A far better solution is to get them back to work and let us oldies keep our distance, and get “herd immunity” established ASAP – in months not years. Then we will all be safe again.…
              All we really needed to do was over-protect the very elderly and infirm – the high-risk population – which we failed to adequately do. What a debacle!
              The evidence of serious criminal activity is overwhelming.

              This was not a difficult judgment call, once the quality data was located.
              MOST IMPORTANT: Do NOT inject your children or grandchildren.

              CHINESE VIROLOGIST SAYS FAUCI’S EMAILS ‘VERIFY’ HER WUHAN LAB LEAK CLAIMS
              By Lee Brown June 4, 2021
              https://nypost.com/2021/06/04/chinese-virologist-says-fauci-emails-verify-her-lab-leak-claims/

              A Chinese virologist who was among the first to suggest COVID-19 leaked from a Wuhan lab has said that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s emails prove she was right all along.

              Dr. Li-Meng Yan was one of the first to research the emerging coronavirus and previously revealed she was forced into hiding after accusing Beijing of a cover-up.

              Now, as international leaders finally focus on her Wuhan lab-leak theory, the scientist told Newsmax that Fauci’s emails contain “a lot of useful information” suggesting he always knew more than he revealed.

      Imagine this – the USA Democratic Party and the Biden White House are acting like agents of the Chinese Communist Party and Biden is “The Manchurian Candidate”. It’s not a big stretch – every one of their bizarre actions for the past several years has served the interests of China.

      The same is true of Justin Trudeau and the Canadian leftist parties – the Liberals, NDP, Greens etc.

      The same true of Boris Johnson and his Climate-and-Covid clowns in the UK.

      Also Australia an New Zealand.

      None of their Climate or Covid policies made any sense, and all of their actions did many times more harm than good.

      Do you really believe all these government people could all be so utterly dysfunctional, so incredibly stupid?

        That corrupt imbecile Biden cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline, which was to supply Canadian oil to USA refineries.

        Who benefits? Russia and China both benefit! The USA becomes strategically dependent on Russia and its balance-of-payments heads south too.

        Only an imbecile and/or a crook would pull such an incredibly stupid move.

        Here is the story:

        AS BIDEN GOES GREEN, US RELIANCE ON RUSSIAN OIL SURGES TO RECORD HIGH
        The Epoch Times, 17 June 2021
        https://www.theepochtimes.com/us-reliance-on-russian-oil-surges-to-record-highs-amid-tensions_3863635.html

        WASHINGTON—Russian oil imports have set a new record in the United States despite the strained relationship between Washington and Moscow. Industry experts believe the Biden administration’s climate policies will make the country more dependent on foreign oil producers.

        The United States imported record levels of crude oil from Russia in March and is expected to continue importing at high levels in coming months, according to the Western Energy Alliance, a trade association that represents 200 independent natural gas and oil producers in the United States.

        Imports of crude oil and petroleum products from Russia reached 22.9 million barrels in March, the highest level since August of 2010, according to International Energy Agency (IEA). Of the total amount, crude oil imports from Russia stood at 6.1 million barrels. Russia has become the third-largest oil exporter to the United States.

        High levels of oil shipment from Russia have continued since March, according to ClipperData, a commodity intelligence company that monitors cargo shipments worldwide.

        “Last month we saw a record 5.75 million barrels of Russian crude discharged in the US, and we’re projecting a further record this month of 7.5mn bbls,” ClipperData analysts wrote on Twitter on June 7.

        Critics argue that Biden’s climate agenda is hard on the U.S. oil industry but soft on foreign producers.

        “It’s disturbing to our industry that the Biden administration goes out of its way to disadvantage the American producer while buttressing the Iranian and Russian industries,” Kathleen Sgamma, president of the Western Energy Alliance, told The Epoch Times.

        The recent spike in Russian oil imports has followed the “misguided climate policies” of the administration, including ending the Keystone XL pipeline and pausing new oil and natural gas permitting on public lands and waters, according to Sgamma.

        President Joe Biden has “tipped us into oil dependence on Russia just a year after complete independence,” Sgamma said, calling it “a geopolitical gift” to the Kremlin.

        U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude surpassed the $70 mark last week, reaching the highest level in over two years. Top commodity traders now believe oil prices could see $100 per barrel due to supply constraints. Oil hasn’t traded above $100 per barrel since 2014.

        “There’s been kind of a dearth of investment in fossil fuels, which is going to leave us undersupplied as we go forward,” Phil Flynn, senior energy analyst at the Price Future Group, told The Epoch Times in a recent interview.

        He noted that the Biden administration’s climate policies, which will reduce the supply of oil and gas, have been a major factor in driving the prices.

        “U.S. oil production has fallen by 1.715 million barrels [per day] from a year ago, so a large part of that void is being filled by Russia,” Flynn wrote in a recent op-ed on Fox Business.

        “During Trump’s term, America was competing with Russia and Saudi Arabia to be the world’s dominant oil and gas producer, yet under Biden, we are retreating from that race in the name of climate change,” he wrote.

    To be very clear, they may call themselves Liberals, or Progressives, but they really are Marxists – and they’ve been programmed.
    It’s called “The Long March of the Institutions” – started in the 1930’s and going strong.

    The novel “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, written by George Orwell in 1949, foresaw a time “when much of the world has fallen victim to perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, historical negationism and propaganda”.

    Orwell had remarkable foresight. Here is the real “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, an interview that year with ex-KGB officer and Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov, who described their long-term program to ideologically undermine the western democracies. Note especially Bezmenov’s discussion of “ideological subversion”. It is all about manipulating the “useful idiots” – the pro-Soviet leftists within the democracies.

    UNITED STATES SENATE TODAY ANNOUNCED: ‘CORONA IS A LIE’! THE MEDIA IS COVERING UP THE TRUTH.
    https://www.bitchute.com/video/UIi6h8B9PYyB/

    It is official. The United States Senate today announced: ‘Corona is a lie’! The media is covering up the truth. Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Media, the WHO and other traitors will be all held accountable.

    Told you so 15 months ago.– on 21&22March2020.

    There was no justification for the Covid-19 lockdowns – all we needed to do was over-protect the very elderly and infirm.

    Early treatment with HCQ (and even better with Ivermectin) would have saved lives – why were these cheap, effective, approved treatments vilified and effectively banned?

    I also predict that the Covid-19 “vaccines” within ~2 year clearly will have caused more harm than good – hope to be wrong, rarely am. Do NOT inject your kids.

      Here is my suggestion for an appropriate immediate action by western governments to retaliate for the release by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) of the Covid-19 bio-weapon against our countries, at great cost:

      By act of Congress, Parliament, etc. immediately cancel ALL debts owed by all western governments and private entities (companies and individuals) to ALL Chinese entities. Then immediately cancel all western currency held by Chinese governments and private entities, if that is possible.
