“US Intel Agencies Played Unsettling Role in Classified and “9/11-like” Coronavirus Response Plan” by Whitney Webb (Mint Press News)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

As the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis comes to dominate headlines, little media attention has been given to the federal government’s decision to classify top-level meetings on domestic coronavirus response and lean heavily “behind the scenes” on U.S. intelligence and the Pentagon in planning for an allegedly imminent explosion of cases…

It has since been speculated that the decision was made to prevent potential leaks of information by stifling participation and that aspects of the planned response would cause controversy if made public, especially given that the decision to classify government meetings on coronavirus response negatively impacted HHS’ ability to respond to the crisis.

After the classification decision was made public, a subsequent report in Politico revealed that not only is the National Security Council managing the federal government’s overall response but that they are doing so in close coordination with the U.S. intelligence community and the U.S. military. It states specifically that “NSC officials have been coordinating behind the scenes with the intelligence and defense communities to gauge the threat and prepare for the possibility that the U.S. government will have to respond to much bigger numbers—and soon.”

I’m uneasy with articles referencing mainstream media like Politico and The Nation, as Whitney’s above linked-to article does. I haven’t been reading Mint Press News so much lately but the little I’ve read on the coronavirus has me wondering, because when self-identified progressive sites spout establishment lines about a terrible pandemic (and they don’t qualify), I lose interest and suspect that we are being misled. Still, the above info is important. It reveals that the war-making State is on the march and those who it says it’s protecting are viewed by it as the enemy.

“Coronavirus Continues To Be Used To Force In Long-Standing Government Agendas” by Ryan Cristian (American Vagabond)

Ryan is spot on here (above linked-to video). We are at the point where people, getting their knowledge of the world and everything, have been manipulated into demanding their own subjugation. Ryan speculates that the already crashing global economy called for a scapegoat, ergo coronavirus. But, as Ryan notes, there’s no doubt many motivations and agendas at play here. The bottom line: There is no democracy and it’s powerful special interests who are leading us wherever we are going. I’m angry at them and at my fellow 99 percenters who haven’t cared enough to know – getting all of their information and knowledge and instructions from corporate media – but instead are actually joining forces with their oppressors to oppress us all and push evil agendas. Thanks a lot!

“Strictly by the numbers, the coronavirus does not register as a dire global crisis” by Richard Schabas (Globe And Mail)

An excerpt from the above linked to article follows:

n the three months or so since it started, the new coronavirus and its related COVID-19 disease – which emerged in the Chinese province of Hubei late in 2019 and now numbers more than 110,000 cases around the world – have caused more than 4,000 deaths, mostly in China. As the case numbers grow around the world, including in Canada, where there are now more than 70 cases, people have become concerned that a pandemic is inevitable.

But in the same three months, there have been about three million deaths in China from other causes, and about 14 million deaths worldwide. During the same three-month period, according to Health Canada, there have been almost 10,000 deaths in Canada from tobacco addiction, for instance – and just one from COVID-19.

Is COVID-19 a global crisis? Certainly for people who can’t add.

I learned some powerful lessons from SARS in 2003. Maybe the most important one was how important it was to focus on what has happened rather than on what might happen. In other words: “Just the facts, ma’am.”

I pay close attention to the daily situation reports issued by the World Health Organization, particularly the new cases and the new deaths. I pay no attention to the various pundits and talking heads, because they are always wrong…

Symptomatic travellers from areas with active disease should be tested, as should all patients hospitalized with atypical pneumonia. People infected with COVID-19 need to be isolated, and their close contacts should be monitored.

But we also need to be sensible. Quarantine belongs back in the Middle Ages. Save your masks for robbing banks. Stay calm and carry on. Let’s not make our attempted cures worse than the disease.

“Pandemic Times – Resources and Helpful Information to Consider” compiled by Edda West (Vaccine Choice Canada)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

Andrew Saul Ph.D, Editor of the Orthomolecular Journal reports that information about vitamin C research on COVID-19 in China and its beneficial effects on critically ill patients is actively suppressed by internet giants and mainstream media censors. Suppressing access to vital immune supportive and healing information from the public certainly begs the question, WHY?

“Anyone saying that vitamin therapy can stop coronavirus is already being labeled as “promoting false information” and promulgating “fake news.” Even the sharing of verifiable news, and direct quotes from credentialed medical professionals, is being restricted or blocked on social media.”

Regardless of internet and media censorship, people have a right to know about specific nutritional supplements and healing modalities that can improve the function of their immune systems while mitigating the effects of pathogenic organisms on their health.

The Globe And Mail is awful corporate media, so their carrying of Richard Schabas’s article is surprising.

“The Coronavirus Hoax” by Ron Paul (The Ron Paul Institute)

An excerpt from the above article follows:

Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security.

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

Declaring a pandemic emergency on Friday, President Trump now claims the power to quarantine individuals suspected of being infected by the virus and, as Politico writes, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease.” He can even call out the military to cordon off a US city or state.

State and local authoritarians love panic as well. The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, signed an executive order declaring the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol and cut off gas, water, or electricity to any citizen. The governor of Ohio just essentially closed his entire state.

The chief fearmonger of the Trump Administration is without a doubt Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health. Fauci is all over the media, serving up outright falsehoods to stir up even more panic. He testified to Congress that the death rate for the coronavirus is ten times that of the seasonal flu, a claim without any scientific basis…

That is not to say the disease is harmless. Without question people will die from coronavirus. Those in vulnerable categories should take precautions to limit their risk of exposure. But we have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedoms back.

“LISTEN: CBC Radio cuts off expert when he questions Covid19 narrative” by Cory Morningstar (Off Guardian)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

A phone interview with a respected physician appears to have been cut short by CBC Radio when the Doctor went off-script

Dr Joel Kettner phoned into the March 15th episode of CBC’s Cross Country Checkup podcast to discuss the Canadian (and international) reaction to the Covid19 pandemic. He was in the middle of making a point about statistics when the host abruptly cut him off…

To be clear, Dr Kettner is not a fringe or controversial character. He is professor of Community Health Sciences and Surgery at Manitoba University, former Chief Public Health Officer for Manitoba province and Medical Director of the International Centre for Infectious Diseases.

He was interviewed on Global News in January, when the pandemic was first hitting the news.

His comments are informative and interesting, but the host’s reaction perhaps more so.

Cory Morningstar is (so far; I always have to say that) the real deal. She is probably the person most responsible for waking the (caring) public up to the fact that the Green New Deal is a scam.

“THE MANY FACES OF VITAMIN C” by Thomas E. Levy (Health E-Bytes)

We are being told that vitamin C is a really, really good idea for those looking for a way to prevent flu and deal with if you get it. The above linked-to article is chock full of info on vitamin C and looks at forms of vitamin C you want to avoid. I’m glad that I came across this. I even found in it something relevant to my own medical condition (atherosclerosis). I had been taking antacids forever and it turns out that that’s bad for your arteries. (You don’t see that mentioned on packages of antacids, of course.) Whereas, bioavailable magnesium is good for helping to repair that. (I don’t expect my condition to be actually, fully repaired, but if it can at all help – dissolve calcium build up – with my atherosclerosis, then I’m very interested in bioavailable magnesium (which I’ll have to look up because I don’t even know that that is! And Dr Levy also points out that it’s hard to overdose on that mineral.)
