Trump taps Jewish conservative think tank chief as ambassador to Japan – https://www.timesofisrael.com/trump-taps-jewish-conservative-think-tank-chief-as-ambassador-to-japan/ – “US President Donald Trump nominated Kenneth Weinstein, a prominent Jewish conservative thinker, to be ambassador to Japan… Weinstein is the president of the Hudson Institute, a conservative Washington, DC, think tank… He also has been deeply involved in the Washington-area Jewish community.”
Line For New Jersey ‘Drive-Thru’ Testing Facility Is ‘Thousands Of Cars Long’ – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/line-new-jersey-drive-thru-testing-facility-thousands-cars-long – “According to the Bergen County Record, when reporters visited, all the entrances to the new coronavirus drive-thru testing center at Bergen Community College were blocked off by noon on Friday, and signs warned that the facility was at capacity. Yet many persisted, with hundreds of cars lining up along Paramus Road, waiting to get closer to the facility… Trying to maintain order, police tried to direct traffic and shouted orders through megaphones… ‘It’s quite possible folks are going to have to wait a few hours,’ said Christopher Neuwirth, assistant health commissioner for the state… Videos that were posted online captured the intensity of the scene.”
Israel Debates ‘Total Suspension Of Individual Freedom’ In Knesset Intel Hearing – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/israel-debates-total-suspension-individual-freedom-knesset-intel-hearing – “After Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced last Saturday that authorities will tap the country’s ‘counter-terror’ technology and systems to combat the “invisible enemy” of Covid-19, Israeli media is now reporting the government is actually considering the “total suspension of individual freedom” — as a new Haaretz headline reads… Israel’s public health services chief is now urging just that: Sigal Sadetsky told the Knesset Subcommittee on Intelligence and Secret Services this week that “A lockdown and personal monitoring of people, and a total halt to personal freedoms” is urgently necessary.”
Despite Pandemic, Lawmakers Push for Even More Spending on Fighter Jets – by Eoin Higgins – https://www.activistpost.com/2020/03/despite-pandemic-lawmakers-push-for-even-more-spending-on-fighter-jets.html – “As the federal government develops strategies for how to deal with the coronavirus outbreak that has already significantly damaged the U.S. economy and killed hundreds of Americans, a group of lawmakers are urging Congress approve the purchasing of 19 more F-35 fighters than the Pentagon requested as part of the battle against the disease, enraging progressives… ‘Infuriating doesn’t even begin to describe it,’ tweeted Stephen Miles, executive director of Win Without War, on Friday.”
From the Official-U.S.-Propaganda Desk: Analysts: Russia Using Virus Crisis to Sow Discord in West – by Zlatica Hoke – https://www.voanews.com/science-health/coronavirus-outbreak/analysts-russia-using-virus-crisis-sow-discord-west – “Reuters news agency reported Wednesday that the European External Action Service issued a nine-page internal document March 16 saying that ‘the overarching aim of Kremlin disinformation is to aggravate the public health crisis in Western countries … in line with the Kremlin’s broader strategy of attempting to subvert European societies.’.. But Russia analysts tell VOA that the Russian government is using every means possible to use the coronavirus crisis to its advantage as part of its information warfare against the West… ‘Some talk shows even spread conspiracy theories, claiming that the U.S. government has invented and is testing coronavirus as means of biological warfare.’.. Eltsov says the goal of this propaganda is to sow chaos and dissension in the EU, NATO and the United States… U.S. Congress has found indisputable evidence that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, and many officials say there is no doubt that Moscow plans to do so again in this year’s election… Klaus Larres, professor of international affairs at the University of North Carolina, noted that Russia has used every opportunity it has had to weaken Europe, notably during the 1973 oil crisis and 2008 global financial crisis… ‘It is hardly surprising that some Russian state actors are attempting to exploit the coronavirus crisis through conspiracy theories disseminated on the internet,’ he told VOA.” – Comment: You can’t make this stuff up.
Terrorists In Idlib Received Additional Funding Of $2m For Weapons, Operations Against Syrian Army, Russians – https://southfront.org/terrorists-in-idlib-received-additional-funding-of-2m-for-weapons-operations-against-syrian-army-russians/ – “The additional funding reportedly includes operations against Russian military personnel and journalists in Syria. Recently, sources affilated with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other large armed groups started offering bounties for killing or capturing Russian journalists or military personnel involved in operations along the M4 and M5 highways. Radical organizations also increased their propagnada and recruiting campaign exploting the current ceasefire regime… The additional funding reportedly includes operations against Russian military personnel and journalists in Syria.

US government threatens families of Int’l Criminal Court staff if they try Americans for war crimes – https://southfront.org/us-government-threatens-families-of-intl-criminal-court-staff-if-they-try-americans-for-war-crimes/ – “This blatant US threat against the family members of International Criminal Court prosecutors is part of a longer historical pattern of Washington attacking multilateral institutions… At the beginning of the George W. Bush administration’s so-called war on terror, in 2002, the US Congress passed a bill called the American Service-Members’ Protection Act — more commonly known as the “Hague Invasion Act.”.. This unprecedented piece of legislation, which has no precedent anywhere else in the world, declares that the US government unilaterally grants itself the right to militarily invade the Hague if a citizen of the United States or any allied country is tried at the court.”
Idlib Radicals Block M4 Highway Again Hours After Its Reopening By Turkish Troops – https://southfront.org/idlib-radicals-block-m4-highway-again-hours-after-its-reopening-by-turkish-troops/ – “The protesters’ move pose a serious challenge to Turkey, whose military reopened the highway a day earlier. Turkish forces removed several barriers and deployed pre-made barracks along the highway. Reopening the M4 highway, which links the coastal city of Lattakia with Aleppo, is the keystone of the Russian Turkish agreement reached on March 5. If Turkey fail to fulfill this term, the entire agreement will likely collapse… Radical militants, who threatened any force that would move to reopen the highway, attacked a convoy of the Turkish military on March 19. The attack, which took place on the highway itself, claimed the lives of two Turkish soldiers… Turkey is serious about reopening the highway. Nevertheless, Ankara’s influence over Greater Idlib militants, who have been receiving support from it for around nine years, appears to be too weak.”
Stanford Professor Suggests We Are Severely Overreacting To Coronavirus – by David Lindfield – https://newspushed.com/stanford-professor-suggests-we-are-severely-overreacting-to-coronavirus/ – “The co-director of Stanford University’s Meta-Research Innovation Center, John P.A. Ioannidis, wrote in an opinion piece this week a warning to Americans that participating in voluntary shutdowns and allowing the government to set curfews and manipulate the free market before dependable data collected could be a mistake… The professor of medicine, population health, statistics, biomedical data science, and epidemiology described the the current collection of data as “utterly unreliable” due to the inability to test everyone who had potentially been infected… Ioannidis said that coronavirus may be a once-in-a-century evidence fiasco.”.. Admitting that social distancing and lockdowns may be initially sowing the spread of the virus (sic), he questions how feasible it is to maintain these restrictions as part of a long term plan… Ioannidis also inquired how politicians will be able to report on the impact of the restrictions and determine when to restore economic freedom.” (emphasis added)
Mapping out the Banking Elite’s Goal for a Cashless Monetary System – Part One – by Steven Guinness – https://stevenguinness2.wordpress.com/2020/02/14/mapping-out-the-banking-elites-goal-for-a-cashless-monetary-system-part-one/ – “Six years on from the BOE’s research, the digital currency agenda has advanced significantly in the face of increased geopolitical instability. An area of interest that has garnered scant attention is the ‘utility settlement coin‘ (USC) project that several global banks have been heavily invested in. It is a project that has now evolved through the inception of Fnality International, a consortium of shareholders that includes UBS, Barclays and Lloyds Banking Group… Here is a breakdown of some of the key events which have taken place in regards to USC since the BOE’s research was published…”
Covid-19 Global Lockdown – by CJ Hopkins – https://off-guardian.org/2020/03/18/covid-19-global-lockdown/ – “No, there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that Covid-19 is the deadliest global pandemic humankind has ever faced, and that we have no choice but to cancel everything, confine everyone inside their home, wreck the entire global economy, force working class people even further into debt, pour trillions into the investment banks, cancel elections, censor the Internet, and otherwise implement a global police state… But what if it wasn’t? Just hypothetically. What if this wasn’t the deadliest global pandemic humankind has ever faced? (I’m just posing the question as a thought experiment, so please don’t report me to the WHO, or the CDC, or FEMA, or whoever.) What if this new coronavirus was just another coronavirus like all the other coronaviruses that people die from (or with) all the time? What if the fact that this one is “new” didn’t really mean all that much, or possibly anything at all, because coronaviruses are always mutating, and every year there are a lot of new variants?.. Relax, OK? I know this one is different, and totally unlike anything ever encountered by virologists in the history of virology. Remember, this is just a thought experiment. These are just hypothetical questions.”
What an Incredibly Useful Little Virus This Has Been for the Power Elite – Instead of taking the blame for the global economic crash they get to play martial law – by Marko Marjanović – https://www.anti-empire.com/what-an-incredibly-useful-little-virus-this-has-been-for-the-power-elite/ – I’m not saying it’s a conspiracy. But if it was, what would be any different?.. This hysteria pandemic has been such godsend to them. So much so that if I were in their place I would be looking to extend it for as long as possible… I would make sure everyone who died while having coronavirus would be counted as its victim. And I would drown the land with corona test kits (who cares just how reliable they are having been approved so quickly) to make sure the number of infected keeps rising for as long as possibleas an ever-greater proportion of your usual seasonal patients with flu-like symptoms are identified as having the dreaded covid-19… If Trump is smart he’ll put the US under an European-style martial law to extend the crisis. The bigger the virus hysteria and the greater the fallout from anti-virus measures the more believable his claim in November that it was a great economy until the unfortunate act of nature/god.”
The Coronavirus CONSPIRACY – Did COVID-19 Come from America? (by Nathan Rich – 19 min) – Comment: Nathan explores much of the evidence suggesting that “COVID-19” (or a precursor?) was active in the U.S. months before the outbreak of “the Pandemic) in Wuhan.
Breaking/Exclusive: US Brought COVID-19 to China with Fake Army Team for Military Games, Evidence Mounting – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2020/03/20/china-us-brought-covid19-to-china-during-army-games-hid-disease-in-us-as-influenza/ – “The US team did so badly that they were called “Soy Sauce Soldiers” by the Chinese. In fact, many never participated in any event and stayed near the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, where the disease is said to have originated only days after the US left the area… The US team went home on October 28, 2019, and within 2 weeks, the first human contact cases of COVID 19 were seen in Wuhan. The Chinese have not been able to find “patient zero” and believe he was a member of the US team… They also have sources that say the US had misrepresented influenza that Trump claims have killed thousands, influenza carried to China by the US team, influenza that was really COVID 19, a disease developed in a military bio-warfare facility in the state of Washington, now “ground zero” in the US for COVID 19… The Chinese claim, something censored in the US, that the inattentive attitude and disproportionately below average results of American athletes in the game indicates they might have been in for other purposes and they might actually be bio-warfare operatives, and that their place of residence during their stay in Wuhan was also close to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, where the first known cluster of cases occurred.”
Why Assume There Will Be a 2020 election? General Butler and the ‘Wall Street Putsch’ Revisited – by Matthew Ehret – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2020/03/20/why-assume-there-will-be-2020-election-general-butler-and-wall-street-putsch-revisited/ – “The upcoming American elections are just around the corner and everyone is wondering if the new president will be named Trump, Biden, Sanders or none of the above… I can hear the incredulous reader exclaim: Wait, what does “none of the above” mean?? It’s certainly going to be one of those three isn’t it??.. It is often too easy to lose sight of the forest for the trees and in the opinion-packed world of endless talking head commentaries, every leaf and branch is scrutinized by professional opinionators so closely that many forget that the entire forest is on fire. As I’ve written extensively here and here and here, the reality is that the western financial system is careening towards a crash much worse than anything the world saw in 1929, and the deep state trying to manage this wreck from above would love nothing more than to impose a fascist dictatorship onto a frightened population.”
Why the coronavirus pandemic may fast-forward 5G adoption in the US – by Todd Wasserman – https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/20/why-the-coronavirus-pandemic-may-fast-forward-5g-adoption-in-the-us.html – “Whole cities have emptied under the coronavirus threat as businesses tell employees to work from home, students are sent indoors to learn online and every type of entertainment— from restaurants and sporting venues to movie theaters — shutters, forcing people to stay home and rely on their home broadband networks to interact with the outside world… This switch-over is unprecedented, which begs the question: Can our current networks handle the strain?.. Moreover, is the coronavirus outbreak and the “social distancing″ required to mitigate the spread going to become the business case for more advanced and robust 5G technologies for a future in which business, health care and human interaction must be at more than an arm’s length?.. Carriers may be able to argue that this sudden influx of workers from home necessitates more investment in 5G. Meanwhile, Wi-Fi 6, which is just hitting the market, improves the speed of home Wi-Fi… Coupled with Wi-Fi 6, 5G may yet revolutionize the market for stay-at-home workers. But it remains uncertain on how fast this will happen.”

Creating and Exploiting the Coronavirus Crisis – by Makia Freeman – https://thefreedomarticles.com/creating-exploiting-coronavirus-crisis-problem-reaction-solution/ – “THE STORY: As the coronavirus crisis unfolds, governments around the world are granting themselves new powers… THE IMPLICATIONS: They engineered the virus (the problem), they generated fear and panic (the reaction); what are the sweeping, transformative changes (the solution) the NWO controllers are trying to implement upon a scared, distracted and compliant population?
The New War on Bioterror: Everyone is a Suspected or Asymptomatic Carrier – by Makia Freeman – https://thefreedomarticles.com/new-war-on-bioterror-everyone-suspected-carrier/ – “THE STORY: US President Donald Trump has just said the US is at war against a hidden enemy. Other governments worldwide have said the same. Are we exiting the War on Terror and entering the War on Bioterror?.. THE IMPLICATIONS: Under conditions of hype, panic, fear and war, rationality and normal human rights disappear. Is the government about to turn on everyone? Is everyone a guilty “suspect” (i.e. a suspected carrier) until proven innocent?.. In the old war on terror, the government had to try to frame you as a terrorist or extremist for your actions or views. Now, in the new war on bioterror, everyone is a potential suspect. Since viruses are so microscopically tiny, there’s no way to know if anyone is a carrier or not without being tested (and even then, the PCR test has some serious flaws). People not showing of signs of sickness could still be asymptomatic carriers. Do you see where this is going? What is to stop the government from making you a (public health) enemy and stripping your rights based on the assertion that you are a carrier? The psychological operation in play here is that they want you to submit to quarantine, accept less freedom and roll up your arm sleeve to get a mandatory vaccination with embedded Bill Gates digital ID2020 chips – all to play your part in the new war on bioterror.” – Comment: A Brilliant analysis of the current Bio-War phenomenon.
9/11 Truth, Coronavirus Truth: Zionist Hysteria, MSM Lockdown – by Kevin Barrett – https://www.unz.com/kbarrett/9-11-truth-coronavirus-truth-zionist-hysteria-msm-lockdown-war-on-the-horizon/ – “We are now experiencing 911-2B, the coronavirus black swan. Just as 9/11 terrorized, shocked, and shut down the USA for a few days, it seems that Covid-19 will do the same, only more so. Instead of a few days, we may be shut down for a few months, maybe even a few years. And once again, Zionists are hysterically pushing back against those of us questioning the official story. The Israel-lobby propaganda site The Algemeiner recently published a hit piece headlined Islamists Call Coronavirus a Zionist-American Conspiracy. It featured the following attack on yours truly: ‘Press TV, meanwhile, published an article by American conspiracy theorist Kevin Barrett to back the claim that the coronavirus is a US-Israeli conspiracy using biological warfare to hurt Iran. ‘US, Israel waging biological warfare on massive scale,’ was the March 7 story’s headline… ‘Barrett, a “9/11 truther,” got crazier in the story”
Fed Expands Dollar Swap Lines With Nine More Central Banks Amid Unprecedented Dollar Short Squeeze – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/fed-expands-dollar-swap-lines-nine-more-central-banks-amid-unprecedented-dollar-short – “As we reported yesterday, one of the recommendations proposed by repo “god” Zoltan Pozsar to restore dollar liquidity and eliminate funding and market stress, was for the Fed to effectively become banker to the entire world in the form of unlimited, 24/7 swap lines with every central bank, not just the current G7, to wit: ‘The Fed needs to broaden access to the swap lines to other jurisdictions as dollar funding needs are large in Scandinavia, Southeast Asia, Australia and South America, not just in the G-7.’.. Well, after an overnight session that saw currencies flash crash across Asia, notably the Aussie… … demonstrating just how urgently instant dollar access is needed at a time of the biggest dollar margin call in history, the Fed relented, and on Thursday morning the Federal Reserve announced the establishment of temporary U.S. dollar liquidity arrangements (swap lines) with: ● the Reserve Bank of Australia, ● the Banco Central do Brasil, ● the Danmarks Nationalbank (Denmark), ● the Bank of Korea, ● the Banco de Mexico, ● the Norges Bank (Norway), ● the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, ● the Monetary Authority of Singapore, ● and the Sveriges Riksbank (Sweden)… According to the release, ‘these facilities, like those already established between the Federal Reserve and other central banks, are designed to help lessen strains in global U.S. dollar funding markets, thereby mitigating the effects of these strains on the supply of credit to households and businesses, both domestically and abroad.’ ”
In Photos: Heavily Armed Turkish ‘Observation’ Post In Northwest Hama Is Surrounded By Syrian Army – https://southfront.org/in-photos-heavily-armed-turkish-observation-post-in-northwest-hama-is-surrounded-by-syrian-army/ – “On March 18, Russian journalist Oleg Blokhin released photos showing a heavily armed Turkish “observation” post in northwestern Hama… The “observation” post, located near the town of Shir Mughar, is currently besieged by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). The photos, likely taken by a Russian drone, show several battle tanks, armored vehicles and self-propelled howitzers inside the post.”
Is This The Next Big Headache For Global Economy? – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/dollar-shortage-next-big-headache-world-economy – “The events of the last several weeks have ominously demonstrated that dollar shortage has returned with a vengeance, as new headaches for virus-battered emerging markets will find it hard to cope with falling local currencies and demand…. The dollar shortage was confirmed last week in both the Bloomberg Dollar index and the FRA/OIS spread, a closely followed indicator of interbank dollar funding availability that has spiked higher, indicating rising stress… The Federal Reserve’s massive monetary “bazooka” including trillions of dollars for repo markets and the launch of $700 billion QE5 and return to ZIRP, as well as an emergency six POMO operations last week has failed to boost risk sentiment, and the FRA/OIS has yet to show any signs of relief, as it has surged to the highest level since the financial crisis. The Fed’s monetary cannon may have solved the corporate liquidity crisis for the time being. Still, the dollar/liquidity shortage in the global financial system continues to worsen as investors are dumping emerging markets in record numbers and scrambling for dollars.”

Lindsey Graham’s New Law (EARN IT) Would End Internet Privacy for Good – by Eric Striker – https://russia-insider.com/en/lindsey-grahams-new-law-earn-it-would-end-internet-privacy-good/ri28427 – “A new bill sponsored by Lindsey Graham, Richard Blumenthal, Josh Hawley and Dianne Feinstein called the EARN IT Act of 2020 will force encrypted communication providers, like Telegram and Protonmail, to give American intelligence services the ability to wiretap private chats or face steep legal penalties. The law’s supporters are using the cover of coronavirus panic to quietly advance it without much of a debate… According to the bill’s text, it is intended to fight sex trafficking and child pornography online by criminally implicating tech companies that do not create a back channel for federal law enforcement to access on a whim. The nuts and bolts on how this will work has been kept opaque. A committee composed of members of the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security will set the terms only after it passes… Graham and Blumenthal are both dyed in the wool Zionists, not child advocates. Dianne Feinstein, who represents Silicon Valley, is unlikely to have put her name to this bill without the explicit support of Facebook, Google, and other big tech firms suffering from a well-deserved lack of public trust. Josh Hawley, who claims to be a populist, appears to be attempting to channel wide support for ending tech censorship towards the nefarious end of increasing it. ”

According to neighborhoodscout.com, your chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime in Philadelphia was one in 25, before arrests were even halted.”

This Is What A $12 Trillion Dollar Margin Call Looks Like – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/what-12-trillion-dollar-margin-call-looks – “And, as we noted previously, the events of last week so ominously demonstrated, the dollar shortage is back with a vengeance, as confirmed by last week’s concurrent surge in both the Bloomberg Dollar index and the FRA/OIS spread, a closely followed indicator of interbank dollar funding availability… And it may come as a shock to some but ever since the financial crisis nothing has been actually fixed, and instead the Fed stepped in at every market stress event to inject more liquidity, aiding the issuance of even more debt, and kicking the can while while helping mask the symptoms of the crisis, only made the underlying financial instability even more acute. Meanwhile conventional wisdom that the US banking system was rendered more stable now are dead wrong, with the public and countless financial professionals fooled by the nearly two trillion in excess reserves (we all saw what happened when this number dropped to a precarious “low” of “only” $1.3 trillion in September of 2019) injected by the Fed in recent years. All this liquidity upon liquidity has only made the system that much more reliant on the Fed’s constant bailouts and liquidity injections.”
Syrian Army Repels Large ISIS Attack In Eastern Homs – https://southfront.org/syrian-army-repels-large-isis-attack-in-eastern-homs/ – “Meanwhile, opposition sources told Germany’s DPA news agency that 20 Syrian soldiers were killed in the attack. The sources claimed that many others service members were captured by ISIS terrorists… These claims may be false. Pro-government sources have not reported any losses in the SAA’s ranks in central Syria, so far… ISIS cells in central Syrian, mainly in the Homs desert, stepped up their attacks in the last few months. The terrorists made several attempts to block the Homs-Deir Ezzor highway, all were foiled by the SAA.”
Corona Bologna: The Truth Begins to Leak Out in Italy — The Overwhelming Majority of Deaths Are Linked to Other Illnesses – by Jon Rappoport – https://needtoknow.news/2020/03/corona-bologna-the-truth-begins-to-leak-out-in-italy-the-overwhelming-majority-of-deaths-are-linked-to-other-illnesses/ – “Seems the president of the Italian Higher Institute has some smarts. He understands that people who already have other serious health conditions, which have nothing to do with COV, can and do die from those other conditions, regardless of the fact that they’ve tested positive (on useless tests) for COV. He gets it. I predict a great future for him. If he keeps shooting his mouth off, he might find himself working as a weed puller in a forest. Or he might suddenly be diagnosed with the virus and find himself in isolation… Grit your teeth and plow through this piece from Rome, 13 March 2020, Agenzia Nova: “Coronavirus: ISS [Italian National Institute of Health]: in Italy there are only two deaths ascertained so far due to Covid-19” (Italian, English)”
Experimental Coronavirus Vaccine to Skip Animal Testing – Test Directly on Humans – by Dr. Robert J. Rowen – https://healthimpactnews.com/2020/experimental-coronavirus-vaccine-to-skip-animal-testing-test-directly-on-humans/ – “Now the above should tell the entire story of the EVIL medical paradigm of today. For the sake of vaccination, THEY are skipping accepted medical ethics, and placing human scared volunteers at risk… At the same time, the system castigates those of us who do therapies (proven safe) outside the mainstream… And, while they report on the sensationalism of a vaccine, no mainstream outlet will give a safety-proven and likely effective therapy – oxidation – the time of day… Just today I was told that a seasoned and respected reporter for a major New York paper, who suddenly turned believer in oxidation therapy when a non-healing wound on her foot healed for about 10 USD topical oxidation treatment, was refused her story on ozone therapy for coronavirus by every news outlet… They called it “fringe” science.”

CV19 Not Chinese at all, Engineered, Deep State and Proving it is easier and easier – by Ian Greenhalgh – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2020/03/18/virus-outbreaks-are-israeli-bio-terrorism/ – “Sometimes clues come from the most unexpected sources, a couple of days ago we got one such clue from a notorious, disgraced Israeli disinfo shill who wrote about the ‘nice people’ at the Gatestone Institute and how they had published a story about the virus has escaped from a Chinese bio lab in Wuhan… The mere mention of the Gatestone Institute immediately set off my bullshit detector and I decided to look into the matter. Long time VT readers will be familiar with the Gatestone Institute and its notorious head, Nina Rosenwald the arch Zionist pro-Israel former board member of AIPAC and JINSA, two organizations at the heart of the Israeli lobby in the US that are deeply complicit in Israeli’s nefarious meddling in US politics. These are not ‘nice people’, they are anything but, these are the traitorous scum of the earth that have actively assisted the rape and murder of the USA by the Zionist criminals… The offending article was penned by an Italian called Giulio Meotti and can be found here: Coronavirus: China’s War on the Truth by Giulio Meotti, March 7, 2020… I’ll cut to the chase – this article is utter bullcrap and Giulio Meotti is an Israeli disinfo operative… So, why do we have a bunch of notorious Israeli stooges promoting a fraudulent narrative about the origins of the virus?.. The answer is obvious they are covering for the fact that the virus outbreak is the work of the Israelis, an act of bioterrorism on a grand scale… ‘Of course, the hidden hands that control virtually the entire globe and its economy were not prepared to allow the Chinese to become the dominant economic, industrial and military power, so they decided to wage war on China; an undeclared war that is unlike any that preceded it as it is not being fought on battlefields by militaries nor in the skies by aircraft and missiles… A quick rundown of some of the offensive actions taken against China leaves one in little doubt that a concerted campaign is been waged against the Asian powerhouse:… Italy has broken away from the herd and dared to forge ahead with trade & economic policies that are drawing it into China’s orbit, this is simply not acceptable to the international Zionist criminals, they want China to be isolated, bereft of allies and therefore vulnerable… Italy’s ‘reward’ for daring to ally itself with China is to become a victim of Israeli bio-terrorism and it will be hit very hard, just to make sure that every other nation is scared off from forging deals with China or joining its Belt & Road Initiative… Expect things to get much worse in Italy, for they are being made an example of and the punishment is going to be severe in order to thoroughly scare and intimidate any and all world leaders… The message is clear – ally with China and you face the same fate as Italy.”

U.S. Joins Al-Qaeda Efforts To Undermine Russian-Turkish Ceasefire Agreement In Idlib – https://southfront.org/u-s-joins-al-qaeda-efforts-to-undermine-russian-turkish-ceasefire-agreement-in-idlib/ – “Thus, he (Pompeo) alleged that Russia itself killed “dozens of Turkish soldiers”… Earlier in the day, Syrian Defense Minister Lieutenant General Ali Abdullah Ayoub was sanctioned by the US, for ‘perpetuating the violence and the disastrous humanitarian crisis inside of Syria. His deliberate actions since December of 2019 have prevented a ceasefire from taking hold inside of Syria. The obstruction resulted in the displacement of almost a million people in dire need of humanitarian aid in the midst of a cold winter in Idlib.’.. Of course, the “bloody Assad regime” is, also, not the only one to blame – since plenty of guilt lies in its enablers – Russia and Iran… ‘The Assad regime’s forces, backed by Russia and Iranian-supported forces, have been responsible for the continued bombardments that destroyed schools and hospitals and killed civilians, including medical professionals and first responders who were risking their lives to save others inside of Syria.’.. ‘So our goal is to inventory here in Brussels with our European and NATO colleagues what are the military, the diplomatic, the economic, the sanctions, and the media and outreach steps we can take to encourage Russia and Syria not to do what we think they want to do, which is to break the ceasefire, push these 3 million refugees across the border, but rather to think twice. If they ignore our warnings, if they ignore our preparations and move forward, we will then react as rapidly as possible in consultation with our European and NATO allies on what the package of sanctions and other reactions will be.’ –United States Special Representative for Syria James Jeffrey… Thus, the US is actively working to undermine the deal, and at the same time says that if the deal fails, Russia would be to blame and would be sanctioned for it.”

Netanyahu Gives Himself Broad Phone Tapping Powers To Fight “Invisible Enemy” Coronavirus – https://southfront.org/netanyahu-gives-himself-broad-phone-tapping-powers-to-fight-invisible-enemy-coronavirus/ – “Well at the very least he was honest about taking Israeli society down the road of Orwellian police state in the name of “protection” from the pandemic. However, we would note that it’s the first we’ve heard of a country openly touting its counter-terror technology and domestic spying as being used to fight the virus, with the exception of China… Netanyahu said these are ‘means that until today I have refrained from using among the civilian population.’.. Meanwhile, former US special forces soldier and now journalist Jack Murphy put it more bluntly: ‘Once these “emergency measures” are implemented, they will never ever be repealed.’.. Likely soon to come to your country, and a neighborhood near you.”
From the Be-Afraid-Be-VERY-Afraid Desk: ‘Terrifying’ (!!!) New Study Warns 2.2 Million People Could Die in US Without Drastic Action – “Only now is the White House coming out of denial and heading straight into saying it could not have been foreseen.” – https://themindunleashed.com/2020/03/terrifying-new-study-warns-2-2-million-people-could-die-in-us-without-drastic-action.html – “An alarming scientific report compiled by British researchers and shared with the Trump White House warns that, in the absence of drastic and coordinated government action, the novel coronavirus could kill as many as 2.2 million people in the United States alone… The new research (pdf), led by epidemiologist Dr. Neil Ferguson and published Monday by the Imperial College of London, shows that merely acting to slow rather than completely stop the spread of COVID-19 would ‘still likely result in hundreds of thousands of deaths and health systems (most notably intensive care units) being overwhelmed many times over.’.. ‘For countries able to achieve it, this leaves suppression as the preferred policy option,’ the researchers wrote.”

From the Rainbows-And-Unicorns Desk: In the midst of converging crises, the Green New Deal is the answer – by Avi Lewis – https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-in-the-midst-of-converging-crises-the-green-new-deal-is-the-answer/ – “In fact, the response to this period of converging crises is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the federal government to initiate a reset of our economy and society, putting Canada on a path toward zero emissions, and bringing immediate material benefits and enhanced, 21st century universal public services to everyone – prioritizing Indigenous, racialized and working class communities – that is, the people who need them most… In other words, this is the ideal moment for Canada to launch the decade of the Green New Deal, a sweeping vision launched nationally last spring by more than 150 climate and social justice organizations, building on momentum south of the border from U.S. congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Sunrise climate movement. Essentially, it recommends an unprecedented public investment in a justice-based transition that creates a vast number of well-paying (preferably unionized) jobs, solves our crises in housing, crumbling infrastructure, health and education, inadequate transit, and deep inequality. This kind of public investment would vastly expand the tax base and stabilize the economy at the same time.”
From the WTF Desk: If This Is Contrived Political Hysteria, What Is The Objective? – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/if-contrived-political-hysteria-what-objective – “I’m beginning to believe the current “pandemic” is perhaps just the latest contrived “enemy of the state”. An opportunity taken by western governments that have, over the past 20 or 30 years, gotten bolder in their willingness to fabricate fear to secure a political end. Political ends are always about greater control, corruption, and ultimately, cover ups… In the age where air has become second to digital noise in terms of ubiquity, and hyperbole has replaced truth as the journalistic objective, governments’ ability to leverage misinformation (i.e. propaganda) has become a precision tool. Like it or not, society has become confused by the amount of information thrown at us and that makes us susceptible… Right now a bill is making its way through Congress that most legislators, have admittedly, not read but are ready to approve. And perhaps the most glaring action is the $5 trillion financial bail out that took place over the weekend. This is by far, the biggest financial industry bailout ever to take place, at least on this planet. Most Americans have no idea a bailout is taking place and those that do will never come to know that the bailout began in early September. On September 2nd, the Fed began its second epic “bank bailout”. That is, it has nothing to do with the virus… And it isn’t just banks but the entire sport of speculation that require a bailout. The leverage inherent in the sport of speculation, across all asset classes, has created an aggregate risk position so large there is no longer enough cash to cover the margin call… This past weekend, once again the Fed announced a $5 trillion bailout and it went completely unnoticed by the public because we are distracted by a “world ending virus”. The largest financial bailout in the history of the world and nobody knows it happened because the focus is on a virus that to date, has resulted in 50 deaths in America (at the same time 8,000 deaths have resulted from the flu in America)… If I were to show these figures (from above in article) to an alien and ask them to identify which scenario resulted in a lockdown of society, which do you suspect they’d point to? Exactly. 100% of you pointed to Swine Flu. 100% of you… So how is it that the western governments picked Covid? And more importantly, why?”
From the Be-Afraid-Be-VERY-Afraid Desk: Congress Must Pass $2 Trillion TARP Or Face Global Depression: Minerd – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/minerd-urges-congress-pass-2-trillion-tarp-rescue-world-imminent-global-depression – “The idea that Congress can address one failing industry at a time—like the airlines now with the $50 billion proposed bailout package—is wrongminded. ● As the economy continues to slow, crisis will start to cascade through many industries, and the problems will come faster and faster. ● The Families First Coronavirus Response Act, the Coronavirus emergency funding bill currently in front of Congress demonstrates how long it takes to react to something. There really needs to be a dedicated pool of money that is available to step in and salvage viable companies that are struggling. ● And remember, TARP was a money-making exercise for the government. We should get away from the idea that we are bailing people out. With TARP, the U.S. government becomes a distressed investor, and also is helping to sustain the economy and the working class. ● This is the scenario that leads to global depression. Should policymakers fail to get these sorts of programs in place quickly, there is increasing risk that we could fall into a deep, dark spiral.”

The effort is being made to ensure the smooth delivery of food supplies to the public as a coronavirus lockdown is about to commence on a regional basis, and food supplies are necessary to prevent social unrest, lawlessness and looting… Natural News has learned details of this plan which we are told is in the final stages of being completed, with some measure of rollout to begin as early as just a few days from now in at least one region of the country. We were also told that we got the attention of the administration when I appeared on the Alex Jones Show two weeks ago and delivered predictions numbers that closely matched the classified numbers the CDC and HHS already had, none of which had been released to the public. This “caused alarm” in certain circles, we were told, because the CDC thought they had a leak to Natural News (which apparently would be the end of the world at the CDC). They later concluded that we had reached the same conclusions based on mathematical models, not any leak.”

He also took a swipe at spring breakers, saying he was “not happy” about people disobeying the guidelines… That would cost the Treasury ~$330 billion, plus whatever more in processing fees (tough using ‘liberal math’, the cost would be much, much higher.… Just to recap: Kudlow gave the market the first whiff of helicopter money yesterday, then Bill Dudley followed that up this morning, along with a few well-placed leaks, with Mnuchin delivering the final touches before sprinting off to the capitol.”

Most of the emphasis for this act was born upon the federal government’s response to the Anthrax scare immediately after 9/11… Hidden in the Act is subsection (7) under declarations by the Secretary of HHS: (7) JUDICIAL REVIEW. – No court of the United States, or of any State, shall have subject matter jurisdiction to review, whether by mandamus or otherwise, any action by the Secretary under this subsection… CounterMeasures Injury Compensation Program: The CICP is very problematic in so many ways… First, the statute of limitations is only one (1) year versus three (3) years for injury in the NVICP… Second, the Program does not reimburse any medical expert fees or attorney fees. You are on your own, just filling out a petition form and submitting to HRSA… Third, there is no appeals process within a court system. Can’t appeal the decision to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals nor to the US Supreme Court… Fourth, all decisions are NOT disclosed, so they are not subject to public inspection.”

Last Thursday, as the bond market melted down and lines of credit were under threat the Fed announced an intervention in the short term debt markets (repo) that will run into April and amounts to over $4.5 trillion.… The political and economic elites of the American empire have boxed themselves into a corner and created an economic hurricane that threatens an economic depression similar to the 1930s… Since 2008 the Federal Reserve has presided over a gigantic wealth transfer as its massive money printing led to massive price inflation in paper assets across the board from stocks to bonds. The 1% have raked in massive profits while income levels for the majority have stood still or declined… It has kept interest rates at historically low levels enabling banks, hedge funds and corporations to gorge themselves on cheap debt and engage in a frenzy of stock buybacks to the tune of several trillion dollars… The political and economic elites of the American empire have boxed themselves into a corner and created an economic hurricane that threatens an economic depression similar to the 1930s… Since 2008 the Federal Reserve has presided over a gigantic wealth transfer as its massive money printing led to massive price inflation in paper assets across the board from stocks to bonds.
