Something perhaps overlooked in all the hysteria about the coronavirus is that 2020 is the very first lockdown caused by an infectious disease. Ever. So, why now?

According to the European Monitoring of Excess Mortality For Public Health Action, deaths in Europe during the 2020 flu season, including from the coronavirus, is well below annual average.  More specifically, 2020 is not as bad as 2017, 2018 or 2019. Yet, Europe is now on total lockdown. Then, who changed the rules and why?

Here’s my analysis of the reasons behind the global lockdown:

  • Lockdowns can be used as a justification to reduce or eliminate individual freedoms. That is, remember 9/11 and the Patriot Act which followed?
  • Panic over global pandemics can be used to introduce mandatory vaccinations.
  • Lockdowns can be used to collapse the economies of individual countries who will find themselves further indebted to central banks afterwards.  For example, global pandemics are no different than wars.  That is, you can win the battle but lose the war.  Whether you are a corporation, an individual or a nation, you have no freedom if you owe your soul to a bank.
  • A lockdown can be used as a smokescreen to introduce a new financial system or a new one-world currency.  Since countries may be fatally damaged economically by a lockdown, their currency will become worthless and can be easily replaced by another currency.

This implies that some special interest groups will want to take advantage of any crisis.  Right, Rahm Emanuel?

The coronavirus crisis is “a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”  – Congressman James Clyburn

I saw a movie the other day by the name of Alien Code.  It was sort of like The Matrix. It reminded me that there are similar philosophical perceptions of life that pop up in various places – in books, in movies and even in science, among other places.  Here’s just a few examples:

  • “If you’re seeking answers to alter your understanding of reality, does that not make your world a projection rather than a perception?” – from the movie Alien Code


“Our brains mathematically construct objective reality by interpreting  frequencies that are ultimately projections from another dimension, a deeper order of existence that is beyond both space and time.”  – Michael Talbot, The Holographic Universe


“If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.” – from the movie The Matrix


  • “Even with an eternity of self-reflection, man cannot understand the difference between actuality and illusion.”  – from the movie Alien Code


“The human mind, no matter how highly trained, cannot grasp the universe.” – Albert Einstein


  • “Do you see the world as you imagine it or are you observing what is already there?” – from the movie Alien Code


“We are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.” – Bill Hicks



With all this focus on the question of reality, it’s easy to lose track of what is really important in life.  In the movie The Matrix, you can select between the red pill or the blue pill.  The choice is yours. So, consider this: Life is not about the outcome, it’s about the choices that you make. 


“I’m trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it.” – from the movie The Matrix

Part of the coronavirus stimulus package allows the President to merge the U.S. Treasury with the Federal Reserve.  Very few people realize that this has even occurred. So, exactly why is that important? 

Well, the Federal Reserve is not part of the federal government. The Federal Reserve is a for-profit consortium of mostly foreign banks. As a result of the Federal Reserve Act, it is the nation’s central bank and, as such, has been allowed to regulate the nation’s currency.  The nation’s currency is actually Federal Reserve Notes; it says so right on the one-dollar bill, for example. The Federal Reserve prints our currency at their discretion. The more they print, the less it’s generally worth. That’s called inflation.

Welcome to the arcane dealings of high finance. Your world is about to change.


Two American presidents circumvented the central banking system by printing their own currency (U.S. Treasury notes). Those two presidents were Abraham Lincoln and JFK…and we all know what happened to them.

“Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” – attributed to Mayer Rothschild

So, now that Congress has passed the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package, an important question must be asked: Just how are we going to pay for it? What this proves is that our government is really only good at one thing – spending the nation’s money.  They have no idea how they are going to pay for it – and they don’t care either.

This from Bryce Buchanan at American Thinker:  “We are on the Titanic, headed for the debt iceberg…Our country has unbelievable levels of debt, and our debt is rising rapidly.  The numbers are staggering… In the socialist dream world, there will never be a day of reckoning for government debt. Stephanie Kelton, an economic adviser to Bernie Sanders, said, ‘If you control your own currency and you have bills that are coming due, it means you can always afford to pay the bills on time.  You can never go broke; you can never be forced into bankruptcy.’”

Comment: While what Kelton said may be technically correct, there’s one little problem: The value of your money evaporates into thin air. It’s called inflation.

More from Bryce Buchanan: “Governments can create money, but creating money does not create wealth.”

Comment: Printing money doesn’t make us rich. Rather, it makes us poor.  In reality, governments can’t create anything.  So, if you ever hear a politician say that they can create jobs, run for the hills.

The only other question worth asking at this point is this: How long are we going to let the politicians get away with playing this stupid shell game which is killing the country?


Here’s the link to the full article by Bryce Buchanan:




Down through the ages, there have always been events which changed the course of history.  The coronavirus may well turn out to be such an event. Here’s why.

Because of the coronavirus, people everywhere will have to rethink what it really means to be a sovereign nation. It will become a necessity for nations to be as self-sufficient as possible, which will produce a massive shift from a centralized/free trade model to decentralized supply chains. National security interests will require the protection of a nation’s borders which will be a necessity to manage future world pandemics.  Immigration, naturally, will have to be restricted.  If you want to know what that model somewhat looks like, just go to Russia, Israel or Saudi Arabia. With the shift in world trade, and an emphasis on national security issues, will come an even bigger rush to nationalism. With that, the world’s finance system will have to totally change as the central banks model (globalism) will not be able to co-exist with nationalism. 

In the future, the impact from the coronavirus will cause business to be conducted differently. Previously, economists have always espoused a healthy, positive growth rate which would provide for ever increasing living standards. Yet, they worried about maturing populations, like in Japan and the United States, and recommended that migrants fill the gap in the worker shortages. Now, progress will have to be thought of in terms of a possible global pandemic. So, the term sustainable living is going to have to be redefined to allow for aging populations in some countries and, therefore, negative growth rates.  After all, countries don’t have to always grow, they simply need to be efficient.

Part of the changes brought on by the coronavirus may well involve reverting back to a simpler way of life.  Large cities do not work near as well as rural populations when it comes to infectious diseases and environmental concerns like pollution. Technology, for all of its advantages, creates a myriad of social problems not to mention serious health issues.  Things like 5G and wi-fi technology may have to be rethought and/or replaced by safer technologies.

In the U.S., the political landscape is in for some real changes. Borders will have to be closely monitored for national security reasons, including keeping out infectious disease. Immigration-related issues will rival the economy for the top spot on the list of most important election issues. This will be especially true in the 2020 elections as it will be difficult for a candidate to get elected if they are for “open borders.” That’s because illegal aliens, including Chinese immigrants, are entering the country every day and bringing in the coronavirus as well as other serious diseases.

That’s what I see are the obvious after-effects of the coronavirus. I’m sure that there will be others as well. Man can go to the moon, perhaps, but he still can’t tame an itsy, bitsy virus. That’s why I refer to it as The Corona Effect.


 “It takes but one person, one moment, one conviction, to start a ripple of change.” – Donna Brazile 

P.S. (or a coronavirus) 

It may be too early to do a post-mortem on the coronavirus, but a few things seem very clear already.  The overriding take-a-away is that the coronavirus is a national disaster, although not quite like anything that you might be thinking about.  It’s a disaster because of the way that we’ve overreacted to it.

I guess the following things would fall under the category of things confirmed, as opposed to lessons learned:

  • Government is totally inept.  For example, the country could have been much better prepared for a global pandemic.
  • Politicians are only interested in protecting themselves, not the country.  As Congressman Thomas Massie has said about Congress’ efforts to combat the coronavirus, There are almost no discussions about the limits of state and federal power.”  In other words, it’s another Patriot Act moment.
  • Certain institutions that should have safeguarded our health are totally corrupt.  For example the WHO and the CDC practice politics instead of medicine.
  • The media promote fear mongering as opposed to trying to bring people together.
  • People are very easily manipulated, a herd of sheep ready to jump off the cliff if the other sheep do. For example, panic buying of toilet paper and hand sanitizers (and everything Costco).
  • We need to have supply chains which make the country as self-reliant as possible.  I wouldn’t be buying anything from China, not even a coronavirus vaccine.

While the ultimate effects of the coronavirus may change somewhat before it’s all over, it’s readily apparent to me that what we need to do most, as a country, is to love one another.  Social distancing is a joke, intended to divide and conquer.  I think the old adage to make love and not war still applies. Without love, I have no idea how we are going to survive as a species.

“There is nothing to fear except fear itself.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

I’m pretty sure that by now nearly everyone has heard about the pandemic that swept across the world? No, I’m not talking about the coronavirus but rather H1N1.  Remember that one?

Just a little over 10 years ago, H1N1 was the scourge of the earth. H1N1, better known as the swine flu, is said to have first struck in the U.S. causing some 60 million Americans to become infected. By some estimates, as many as 500,000 people died of the disease worldwide.

So, what was the government’s response? Were schools and businesses closed? Was travel in and out of the country restricted? Were quarantines imposed? Did the nation go on lockdown?  The answer is mostly no to all of the above. Actually, some schools did close but the government only asked that schools only be closed as a last resort.

Although there were negative effects from the H1N1 pandemic, the world survived. The effects were relatively mild, all things considered, because everyone carried on pretty much as usual despite the risks. By contrast, the coronavirus is a drop in the bucket, yet the world has gone on lockdown mode with so many people losing their jobs and/or not being paid while their companies suspend operations. Whole industries totter on the brink of bankruptcy and what is our response? Stay at home (and let the economy collapse). The general government strategy to counter the coronavirus has been to co-opt individual freedoms.  Martial law (quarantines) are everywhere and increasing by the day. The National Guard will be deployed soon.

The interesting thing is, though, that it’s relatively easy to take away people’s personal freedoms just by scaring them out of their wits.  After all, that’s how Hitler came to power.  What comes next one can only guess but I’m pretty sure that you’re not going to like it.


The objective of an engineered pandemic is not primarily to kill people.  Rather, it’s about getting people to let the government run their lives – create the problem, then provide the solution. The endgame is mandatory vaccinations.  As Bill Gates mentioned at a TED conference, the solution to the world’s so-called over-population problem is vaccines. Right, Bill?

“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care & reproductive health services, we could LOWER that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”  – Bill Gates

Well, now we have yet another national emergency as Trump has recently announced his plan to combat the coronavirus.  However, how many of them do we really need? The government is awash in national emergencies that were declared years ago but never taken off the books.  Why not?

In a democracy, the government is elected by “the people.” This is also true of a republic, which the U.S. A. is.  The one thing that distinguishes a republic from a democracy is that republics have a constitution which protects the rights of all citizens, especially the rights of minorities from the majority. However, those constitutional rights can be suspended by the president declaring a national emergency.  These national emergencies can give the president, indeed any president, near dictatorial powers when it comes to running the country.  Just ask Barack Obama.  

Now the latest national emergency entitled Executive Order on Prioritizing and Allocating Health and Medical Resources to Respond to the Spread of Covid-19” allows the President to use the power of previous national emergencies and something called the Defense Production Act to override the Constitution.  In fact, Trump has gone so far as to declare that he is a “war-time” president, which invokes the War Powers Act. The truth is that the two presidents prior to Trump were also “war-time” presidents as the country has officially been “at war” ever since 9/11. So, all this bluster about Trump withdrawing troops from Syria or using troops against Iran is just that – bluster.  In reality, Trump has all the power, the power given to him through national emergencies, many of which were declared by Democratic presidents.



Our government is pretty much run by presidential executive orders. The civil war that rages in Washington is all about who gets to exercise the near unlimited powers that result from these “national emergencies.”  It’s all about who gets to be in power. As James Carville, a top Democratic strategist, said on MSNBC, “What we need is power! Do you understand? That’s what this is about.”  It’s funny how the politicos talk about getting power when the power is supposed to be for the people.


“We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it.” – George Orwell






What’s the implication of  “I know that I know nothing,” a saying derived from Plato’s account of the Greek philosopher Socrates?  Well, if arguably the smartest man doesn’t know, why do we think that we do?

Specifically, this can be applied to science and our understanding of the universe.  It was none other than Albert Einstein who said that man would never be able to grasp the universe. Einstein believed that reality is an illusion.  Max Planck, the father of quantum theory, explained why that is so when he disclosed that matter does not exist. Yeah, if matter does not exist, that’s a real dilemma. For what is it then that our physical senses perceive? Einstein’s illusion?

The main problem in understanding the universe is that we can’t see the bigger picture.  That is, we an infinitesimal speck in a universe, in a sea of universes which exist in other realities/dimensions. However, we cannot observe beyond space and time.  Our understanding of the universe is limited to our observations of causality which is most often limited to the effect (and not the cause).  We cannot tell what the source is or where it’s located.

Here’s a couple of gems, though, that science has come up with:

  • Our DNA is self-organizing, self-directing and self-replicating, and far more complicated than our most advanced supercomputers… almost a life form unto itself.
  • Everything in the universe, including ourselves, is nothing more than probability waves that coalesce into particles…only after they are observed. 

What we have, in essence, is an intelligent, conscious and ever-evolving universe.  No wonder Einstein said that man could never understand it.

“All that there is – is consciousness, a circle of life with no beginning and no end.  We are all connected, part of the same infinite energy that exists beyond space time and at the same time interpenetrates the physical world.”  – TheEthicalWarrior, Who Moved My Cheese (Universe)

When is 69 deaths enough to shut down almost the entire country? Answer: When it’s the coronavirus.

However, when is 22,000 deaths not enough to even keep kids from going to school? Answer: When it’s the flu.

So, why is this all happening? Answer: Because someone is lying to us.

The $64,000 question is why would someone yell fire (coronavirus) in a crowded theater. Answer: Because the objective is to induce fear.

…And boy have we taken the bait.


Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said this about the coronavirus, “Our job is not to let the worst case scenario happen.” If that’s true, then why are we letting so many people die from the flu?

Further, we have approximately 37,000 people who die each year from car crashes. So, why not ban all autos?

“Now, we are in the midst of another manufactured crisis where government control of every aspect of our lives will be implemented through mandates, quarantines, and ultimately military force. There is nothing to fear but listening to politicians, government apparatchiks, and the hysteria inducing corporate media doing the bidding of their oligarch masters.” – Jim Quinn, The Burning Platform
