    And I observe FTR that people crying about something that’s not yet three weeks old as though it will go on endlessly are children who were never spanked, sent to bed without their supper, or told to wait for any form of gratification.
    Most of us grew out of that phase of “right now is forever” tantruming somewhere around 1st grade, though the “this minute is forever” argument is sometimes heard as late as adolescence:

      Stop the spread. Flatten the curve.

    • Holy shit you are stupid once and for all. Disagreeing with Robert on this? You are truly a clueless moron.

      CA, on behalf of all of your readers, please stop posting idiot Aesop’s retarded thoughts.

      • Much of the WRSA readership has reached the time when friendship warrants an intervention, not more enabling.

      • DMV GRINGO

        Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

        • Little to none of that has anything to do with the point under contention.

          Even if it did, the Constitution is not a suicide pact.

          Change my mind:
          Prove that it is.

      Good lord are you retarded. You should slice lengthwise.

    • Robert Gore

      Yeah, I remember crying and “tantruming” (SIC) about the Patriot Act the day it was passed. What a silly, immature fool I was. Too bad I have yet to grow out of that phase.

      Robert Gore (Straight Line Logic)

      • Berglander

        Mr. Gore, thanks for doing what you do. I always enjoy reading your sober and sane articles.

      • And I join you in that assessment of the Patriot Act. (When anyone decides the way to go after terrorists is to violate American’s rights (“Round up the Usual Suspects!”), instead of simply violating terrorists with high explosives, they’ve already gone completely off the rails.)

        But to be clear, you figure that stay-at-home declarations now for a current pandemic, which is knocking off upwards of 1K persons/day here, and more each day, will automagically become as open-ended and everlasting as the Patriot Act because…why, exactly?

        Because that’s what we did in 2008, when Obozo had Swine Flu to pin this on? Because Wilson did that with Spanish Flu in 1918? Because of all the other presidents that declared perpetual martial law in every outbreak of bubonic plague in the U.S. before antibiotics? And all those other times that happened too: smallpox, cholera, typhus, yellow fever, malaria, mumps, measles, polio?
        Wait…none of that ever happened…?? Not even once???
        So, what’s changed in the last 12 or 102 or 245 years to make you think we’d go for that now, since we didn’t then, ever?

        I think one of these things is not like the other, not least of which because at a non-infinite point in time, probably within this calendar year (and perhaps much earlier), people would not and will not sit home and starve, or politely await handouts from the unquestioned benificence of Uncle Government, let alone do so in perpetuity, despite the current pandemic, and will express their further displeasure rather more kinetically than verbally.

        You evidently disagree, or think that such response is a trifling thing.

        I’m educable.
        Please, show your work.

        Particularly when 8 states are still under no such order, and some of them have been under one for less than 3 days.

        I’ve been telling people since January this was going to be worse than “just the flu”, and the lunatards here are still in denial with people dropping in NYFC every 5 minutes, and I’m the Chicken Little; but you’ve got us giving up the republic hand over fist forever in less time than William Henry Harrison served as POTUS, on your say-so, and that’s revealed truth for the ages?

        You’ve written some good stuff, but I don’t think you could make that fly with a genie and a magic carpet.

      • SemperFi, 0321

        Good work, the normies will never understand what it means to think outside the box.

      • Plenty of time on the clock for shooting. It ain’t over til the fat lady sings and right now she’s pretty quiet cause she’s intubated.

      • @Robert Gore Lol , the irony is mind-boggling. Some of us have memories that extend past last month and/or the latest crisis du-jour, but we are loons,idiots etc .
        The choice is freedom or slavery . Pick a team A-sap.

    • Quoting Robert in his article at SLL: “Whenever you make a prediction about a government, predict the worst outcome you can think of.”

      Maybe it assumes facts not in evidence (yet), but what has been the general trend been for the last one hundred plus years since 1913?

      Changes to manage a crisis that increase government power and oversight that result in limitations on individual liberty have consistently become permanent.

      There just becomes a point where no matter what excuses are given and no matter what promises are made, you just know what the end result will be and you just don’t trust the S.O.B.s anymore.

      Re: New York:
      https://www.usnews.com/news/health-news/articles/2020-04-06/gov-andrew-cuomo-extends-lockdown-asks-trump-to-use-navy-ship-for-coronavirus-patients

      “Gov. Andrew Cuomo…” “said the numbers are “hopeful but inconclusive and dependent on what we do” regarding social distancing, which is why he is extending his March 20 executive order that banned large gatherings of any kind and size and ordered all non essential businesses to require employees work from home. He extended that initiative to April 29.
      “The extension comes off a weekend of reports that New Yorkers, especially in New York City, weren’t compliant with social distancing guidelines. The governor said he understands that the weather is improving and people are getting “cabin fever,” but “now is not the time to be lax and it is a mistake” for people to let their guard down.”
      “We all have a responsibility,” Cuomo said. “We have a role in this, and the role we play is a societal obligation. This is serious. What right do you have to act irresponsibly?”
      “He said local law enforcement and local government need to be more aggressive about enforcement, and he increased the fine for violations from $500 to $1,000.”
      “We don’t want the money, we want the compliance,” he added. “You don’t have the right to risk someone else’s life.”

      So how long will it be that the numbers keep increasing until they hit a peak and then finally start decreasing until they are low enough to get the ok to end the government enforced stay at home business closure?

      What happens when people finally go back to work and the numbers start increasing again?

      What happens if they have another quarantine order that lasts all Summer and the people of NYC can’t go outside to enjoy a beautiful Summer day under pain of a $1,000 fine?

      What happens if there is a version 2.0 that hits us next year?

      It’s a mess with no easy answer and end in sight.

      Other than at this point maybe testing everyone (even knowing some positives will not show because they just got infected too soon to show on the test) and letting everyone who wants to go back to work and normal life and taking the hit in one massive dose rather than stretching this thing out all through the Spring and Summer until the Fall or Winter when the regular flu season starts up and perhaps the COVID-20 version of this thing makes its appearance and takes out more people that the first wave did (like the Spanish flu).

    • Chuckwalla

      False equivalency fallacy. A child having to go to bed hungry and or putting off immediate gratification is not the same as an individual being deprived of their rights by a government. Nice try Langley.

      You do not seem willing to acknowledge the economic damage that has transpired thus far in this admittedly brief period.

      You do not seem willing to acknowledge that once government encroaches on a particular aspect(s) of our lives that they seldom give up said encroachments.

      Seems like Robert laid it out fairly well. The why, we should be concerned, the why once ‘they’ do this it will come around again etc….

    Dust off your old copy of Sun Tsu and reread it. We fit in those times as written. The Christianized West doesn’t get it because we honor mercy and justice.

  3. We are walking the fine line between damned if you do, damned if you don’t. In crowded NYC, people are still in Central Park, and others, by the thousands. Families simply need to get some fresh air and see the sunshine. Dogs cannot be shut up 24/7 without becoming cranky and nervous. At the same time, nurses and doctors are trying to stop pronouncing body after body deceased, no matter what they do- and risking their lives to do it. Take all of this misery, horror, and frustration right back to where it belongs: the politicians and the elites. Diversity is our strength was horse manure from the inception. A society flourishes under likeness. You cannot celebrate everyone else’s holidays, history, and sense of being without losing yourself in the process. Forever. Notice how having a transgender child, being transgendered, or taking drugs to mask who you are, has now fallen by the wayside. Gay/Pedophile Library Hour suddenly reveals itself for what it is: a shopping forum for the young and vulnerable. The education scam is in plain view for the communist, lying, manipulative scheme it always was. Parents are now understanding why Johnny and Susie are the screwed up 4 yro’s that they are. While we all want out livelihoods returned, how much do any of us miss the Cube Farm? I’m praying that this is the massive wake up call it should be-and not another bump on the road to hell, which is always paved with good intentions. This country has too many people in too many government offices, which is sucking the life, liberty, and intellectual capacity out of The Republic.
    Time for some lamppost decoration.

    • @Stealth Spaniel
      “You cannot celebrate everyone else’s holidays, history, and sense of being without losing yourself in the process.”

      The goal is to erase White Christian culture by flooding the public narrative with their message while silencing yours. They want you to constantly hear of be made aware of everything but being White, being Christian or being Heterosexual. That’s why “It’s ok to be White” and “Straight Pride” posters and signs are considered to be “hate speech, hate literature”.

      For what its worth, they have already cancelled most all the Rainbow Pride events that normally happen in June (“Pride” month) and all those organizations and businesses are taking a big hit.

      Don’t miss the cube farm (or in my case the field work) but do miss the paychecks. Not so much right now (have savings) but after a few months…

      Any lamppost decoration won’t happen until the protectors of the guilty are gone and that won’t be until about the time we look like Bosnia x Rwanda, and unfortunately by then the guilty will probably have skedaddled.

  4. the funniest part of this “lock down” is gonna be when those who advocated for it lose their homes, cars, and jobs.. what? you thought the government was gonna save you?

    HA HA

    • Lockdown,,,,, what lockdown. Ain’t no lockdown here. Never was, never will be.

      O,yea, nothing’s changed on the mountain, had the tires rotated, ordered a Glock 43 9mm w night sights, and seven extra mags. Ordered 10 2 round extensions for those mags.

      Eat lunch at the taco wagon, and picked up two cases of honey, before fueling my truck. Picked up more tumbler medium for polishing brass, yea this lockdowns a ball buster.

        which will be your final downfall

        you’re of the Old World- which is now dead…

        • Tee, your killing me, the sky’s falling, o my. Voodoos, an outstanding investigator, You would be wise to review his research.

          Here’s the deal, tee, and your looser brothers, here. What’s gonna happen has already happened. You selling chicken wings, or delivering a few beers to the natives is amusing. Have you,considered selling trinkets maybe blankets sprinkled with small pox to your captive audience? Maybe when they get off the boat, returning from American, where they went to,get their supplies.

          When you come up with a tangable plan, let us all know. My nest’s, ARE made, my plans simple, bullet proof.

          locking ones self away on an island surrounded by lil brown men, who detest lil white men, is a fucking piss poor plan, but then you never were a very worldly thinker. I know, offer em each 1200.00 dollars, better yet, make them think the govt giving them 1200.00, was really your idea, they have you to think. O yea, you already took credit for that.

          Location location location. Nothing has changed here, not a thing. If it does, I’ll let ya know.

          Moral of the story, quit sniveling, get on with your miserable life. Quit chasing your tail, life’s in front of you, go out and live it.

  6. Hoax Spotter

    Parks fenced off. Locked. Nobody joins me to storm the gates. Pussies all of us.

    • The gates – at the park, mind you – are so fiercely locked you can’t storm them yourself?
      It’s that hard?
      Pffft.
      I think I’ve spotted your hoax.

      • Yes. At my local park, Big , spiked , steel fence with no weaknesses , because in normal times we like to keep the niggers out. The park is closed. Also no basketball courts for that reason.

        And pigs everywhere swarming all around. I live in a rich Jewish area. I’m behind enemy lines. I’m one if the few goyim who can afford to live here.

        And I’m stuck here for family reasons.

        • And since Jews run my city, unfortunately, we’re at 100% peak hysteria and paranoia— everything shut down.

      • Good god you are a stupid asshole. I wish I could meet you.

      • Hoax Spotter

        Yes. Where I live is a communist hell controlled by Jews. I have firsthand insider knowledge that you lack.

      • Hoax Spotter

        There are pigs everywhere. It’s a gated park. It’s locked. I will be arrested if I break the iron gate. It’s 20 feet high and spiked. The park is locked. Nobody else there anyway. The purpose of the park is community. My complaint is that my fellow men won’t join me telling the Jew government to fuck off. My god you’re a dumbass.

    • The parks are empty and no one wants to cut the lock or the chain or the fence because no one wants to get a big fine, get arrested and have to spend time in a crowded jail cell ,or actually fight the police. Probably wise decisions for people like us, all things considered.
      Perhaps if things go on long enough into the Summer groups of bored and restless teenagers will gather outside in defiance of whatever rules are in place, make some noise and take out their frustration by throwing bottles and such at any police that show up.
      But that’s not for us to do. Just do what you can to prepare for a possible breakdown of the rules being able to be enforced by the police.
      Then you’ll be able to go out to the park but you’ll also have to be careful of people who may want to rob or beat you because then they can get away with it.

  7. Is 5G to partially blame for coronavirus deaths? Can 5G cause the blood that’s circulating in your body to be unable to carry oxygen?

    What’s especially horrifying about the critical care of coronavirus patients is that they aren’t suffering from “viral pneumonia,” but rather from an inability to absorb or carry oxygen in the blood.

  10. DISCLAIMER: I am fully aware of the controversies surrounding “Israel Shamir,” a Russian/Swedish/Israeli/Swedish again man variously accused of being a single agent, double agent, and triple agent, a convert from Judaism to Eastern Orthodoxy and I could quibble about some of his points in the article below, but his assessment and James Corbett’s assessment (to be posted next) are among the most balanced, decent, and relevant opinions I have read regarding C✡vid-19.

    Further, he is to be complimented in concisely identifying the “War on Death,” the most unwinnable of all wars ginned up by the (((money worshipping profiteers and control freaks of the genocidal Master Race))).

    FIGHTING THE WORLDWIDE WAR ON DEATH
    ISRAEL SHAMIR • APRIL 6, 2020 • 2,400 WORDS
    https://www.unz.com/ishamir/fighting-the-worldwide-war-on-death/
    The seasonal madness overtook mankind. In years to pass, it will be
    remembered as a new Witch Hunt, but on a global scale. The Salem
    affair engulfed a small town in a remote British colony, while the
    Corona lockdown broke the back of the global economy, pauperised
    millions, imprisoned three billion people, caused uncounted suicides
    and misery. It could be compared with World War One, when the West at
    the peak of its historic achievement rushed towards its
    self-destruction for reasons so feeble that none of the contemporary
    actors was able to explain them convincingly.

    The madness is fuelled by fear of death. Death, this normal occurrence
    for our ancestors, a peaceful transformation, when the discarded body
    is laid to rest in the churchyard after the soul has departed to its
    Creator, became the worst thing to happen to man, a disaster to be
    avoided at all costs, because there is no hereafter, no Creator for
    the soul to return to, but only here and now. They embarked on the War
    on Death, as our colleague CJ Hopkins observed. Trying to escape
    death, mankind inflicted upon itself a mortal wound.

    It is no coincidence that the only sane Western state, Sweden, avoided
    the First and the Second World Wars, and the terrible Corona
    self-destruction as well. I write these words in Sweden, where schools
    and kindergartens still operate normally, and parents do not get mad
    at their irritating youngsters; shops and pubs are open, the churches
    celebrate mass or services, and people are free to roam in the parks
    and bountiful forests. Just compare Sweden with its big neighbour:
    Swedes now spend 43% moretime in the parks than usual, while in
    Germany their people spend 50% less time than usual.

    The Germans are subject to fines: it is 500 Euro if you visit your
    relatives or friends; the same if three or more persons get together;
    the same if you stand at six feet distance or less from another
    person; 75 Euro if you are found without an Ausweis, the authorisation
    permit. Swedes need no permits and are free to visit and socialise.

    German society is breaking down. People are scared of seeing each
    other. Children develop an addiction to games. Loneliness spreads
    faster than the virus. The new generation of Germans (and Europeans in
    general) will be hikikomori, a generation of hermits, social recluses.
    In Japan, there are hundreds of thousands young and not-so-young
    people who withdraw from society. Now this social disease is spreading
    and it is likely to deal the coup de grace to a Europe shattered by
    migration waves, by neoliberalism, by political correctness, by
    same-sex and transgender madness.

    The sexual union of man and woman had been undermined by the society’s
    fight with ‘toxic masculinity’, by enforcement of ‘safe sex’, the ease
    with which people can now be prosecuted for alleged harassment and
    alleged rape. Now it is coming to an end, and the next generation will
    listen with horror to the story of Adam and Eve. But where will they
    listen to it? The churches are closed; Mass is forbidden. While trying
    to defeat Death, Mankind surrendered to Death.

    The Germans forgot the words of their great poet, Goethe:

    Und so lang du das nicht hast,
    dieses Stirb und Werde,
    bist du nur ein trüber Gast
    auf der dunklen Erde.

    In English translation:

    And so long as you haven’t experienced
    this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest
    on the dark earth.

    Or perhaps even better:

    Die and become!

    Eventually, Europe can expect thousands of bankruptcies and suicides.
    The Swedish small and medium-sized businesses will survive, while the
    German small businesses will die. Sweden will survive the crisis as a
    democratic state, as she survived the world wars; while Germany,
    France and Italy are heading towards 1984-style dictatorship in their
    ruined lands, as the disappearing remnants of Pornhub users cling to
    the Internet while it lasts.

    This massive collapse is not even necessary. Corona is dangerous, but
    it is not the plague. The mortality rate in Sweden remains normal and
    seasonal; they do not carry out many tests and have no lockdown,
    though people have been advised to keep their distance and wash their
    hands. Gatherings of more than 50 persons are banned. There are fewer
    people in the streets than normally, but Sweden is not panic-stricken.
    Do Swedes die? Yes, definitely, but they weren’t immortal before
    Corona, either.

    Sweden’s Corona-related deaths stand at 40 per million, three times
    less than in France and twice as many as in Germany, though these two
    states have a severe lockdown policy. Given that in recent years
    Sweden along with all Western states had tried to fight Death per se
    and had kept alive many sick and elderly people even by excessive
    means, one would expect that this harvest would be greater than it is.
    As with any infectious disease big cities are more dangerous than
    villages, and the houses of the elderly, nursing homes, aged-care
    facilities, the places where old folk wait for a not-unexpected death,
    are the greatest death traps. Sweden has no great cities like New York
    or London, but there are many old and very old people who may yet
    succumb to the virus.

    I am proud of Swedish politicians, of the ruling Social Democrats who
    keep the torch of freedom burning bright despite enormous pressure
    from the Western mass media. The leading papers of the Masters of
    Discourse, The New York Times and The Guardian, almost daily print
    articles prophesying doom for Sweden, but meanwhile the PM withstands
    the doomsayers. The Swedish media is not going into panic mode, and it
    helps. I do not know for how long the Swedes will be able to fight the
    pressure; whether the enemies of freedom try a regime change or just
    bomb Sweden into obedience, it is worth it.

    Even in the US, the simple truth began to sink in: the Corona crisis
    is a media crisis, as so many recent events have been. 9/11 and the
    War on Terror is one of them. Since this unique (and still mysterious)
    incident, there have been no Islamic terror attacks in the US. Rare
    individual attacks in Europe have usually been perpetrated by people
    unhinged by the US War on Terror. More people have been killed by
    falling furniture in their apartments than by Islamic terrorists, but
    the price this War on Terror extracted from Americans and the people
    of the Middle East has been stupendous, because the mass media created
    a wave of panic.

    The same is true of the Corona pandemic. Even the mainstream LA Times
    noticedthat “the flu has sickened 36 million Americans since September
    and killed an estimated 22,000, according to the CDC, but those deaths
    are largely unreported.” Corona is real, and it is deadly for people
    whose very survival hinges on advanced medicine. For the rest, it is
    not. From time to time, the media splashes a story of a young man or
    even a child who succumbed to the virus. They never mention that the
    young man was ill of leukaemia (as in the case of the footballer), or
    that the child was born unable to survive independently. The ill are
    simply more prone to die.

    The Russians are a big disappointment. They gave up their independence
    and toed the line. It was an amazing sight: for weeks, Russian
    pro-government media (including bloggers) laughed over the Western
    lockdown policy. They used all the arguments the Western Corona
    dissidents employed. And then it changed overnight. Not because of
    deaths – Russia has 34 corona-related deaths altogether, infinitely
    small number, but because of the pressure. Though Putin refused to
    call for lockdown or similar measures, he allowed governors of the
    provinces to take measures necessitated by local circumstances. And
    Moscow and St Petersburg did it with relish.

    Not only lockdown, but heavy fines for being on the streets without an
    ausweis, a permit; for driving a car, for walking your dog more than
    one hundred yards from your door. They barred parks, limited the sale
    of alcohol, closed tobacco shops. Now life in the Russian capital
    cities is as restrictive as anywhere on the Prison Planet, but they
    plan to go one better by introducing a QR-code system for people
    allowed to exit their own homes. It is said that Putin objects, but
    Sobyanin insists on it. As one would expect, the pro-Democrat FT, the
    newspaper that supported Obama and Clinton, now supports Sobyanin
    versus Putin.

    The Churches are closed; the Christians in this very observant country
    are forbidden to go to services, there is no communion, no liturgy.
    Even in Stalin’s day, during the World War, when German troops stood a
    few miles away from the Kremlin, Muscovites were allowed to go to the
    night service for communion; now, they are not.

    The Russian media and bloggers fully supported the turnaround. The
    pro-Western liberal opposition welcomed it, because it is a proper
    modern Western way of doing things, and the right-wing authoritarians
    approved of it because they like restrictions. Sadly, Russians, a
    wonderful folk, have no real convictions. They were all for communism
    until they were told to drop it, and they dropped it like a hat. They
    were for Putin and independence, but when they felt that Putin was
    losing in the internal struggle, they immediately changed their views.

    Now the majority of the Russian media and bloggers say Putin showed
    his weakness when he did not call for lockdown and allowed the Moscow
    Mayor Sergey Sobyanin to do so instead. They would rather the great
    man himself put them under house arrest. This is very silly, but I
    think it is good to understand the reality.

    For Russians, it is 1991 again, the collapse of the world they
    inhabited, the world of holidays abroad, in Turkey and Egypt, in
    France and Spain, the world of nice cafes and barbershops. The new
    world is as strict and threatening as the dark times of German
    occupation with its numerous prohibitions, but they try to survive.

    Perhaps there will be another turnaround, for the lockdown is very
    difficult for the Russians with their very small apartments. If it
    lasts, expect a lot of family conflict and violence. Modern Russian
    families normally work and meet each other in the evenings only. Now
    they have to see each other 24/7, and it could be too much. Then,
    perhaps, Putin can come as the savior to release them from captivity.

    The worst place to be in these dark times is Israel. They defeated
    Death, and at the same time they defeated Life, the obverse side of
    the coin. Israel has very, very few corona-related deaths. The Israeli
    mortalities are men in their late eighties, inhabitants of the
    old-age-care dwellings. There are no schools, no kindergartens open.
    People are forbidden to venture outside. Mossad and the police trace
    every movement.

    And the War on Death is the War on God. The Churches are closed by
    government decree, even the venerable Resurrection Church or the
    Church of Holy Sepulchre. The Mosques are closed too, even the al Aqsa
    Mosque. The main attack of the godless Zionist regime had been on the
    observant Jews. Their military teams welded the gates of the
    synagogues using the skills they acquired while fighting the
    Palestinian Intifada, when they welded down Arab shops in the Old City
    of Jerusalem.

    They dispatched the best fighters, the commando units, to tear old men
    over eighty away from their families and homes and carried these old
    religious Jews away into sequestered hotels into solitary confinement.
    The main town of the Orthodox Jews, Bene Brak, had been encircled and
    put under blockade like the Gaza Strip. Their Zionist neighbours in
    Ramat Gan demand to surround Bene Brak with a wall so the religious
    Jews won’t venture out. The Orthodox kids bravely fight police and the
    army, call them “Nazis!” and ostentatiously cough at them. The men go
    to pray in underground synagogues, only to be denounced by neighbours
    devoted to the higher common good, as they were in the days of Anne
    Frank. These repressions of believing Jews are probably the worst to
    happen in many years of troubled Jewish history.

    The Jewish faith has many deficiencies, no doubt, but the Jewish
    adherence to faith, their stiff necks, their willingness to rebel
    rather than submit is a fine example to the greater world. I felt
    pride in these Orthodox rebels in their medieval frocks who defend
    their right to pray to God in face of the mighty IDF, just like their
    countrymen the Palestinians who fought the IDF for al Aqsa.

    When Jews are good, they are very good. When they are bad, they are
    really bad. And godless Jews are often in the second category. They
    take their desire to live too far, and their War on Death is total,
    like the bombing of Dresden. Israel is probably the only nation in the
    world where ninety-year-old patients are forcibly connected to lung
    ventilation systems. The price is a total lockdown; but this lockdown
    allows banks to raise their interest rates and forces unemployed
    workers to keep paying their exorbitant rents to their absentee
    landlords.

    In the US, there are two forces fighting over the virus response. The
    Financiers and the Industrialists, or Old and New Money, or Hollywood
    and the Rust Belt, the names vary. It seems that both will be
    defeated, as England and Germany both lost in the World War. President
    Trump wants to save his country, and his fine gesture to refuse the
    mask will be remembered, but he is not strong enough to make the
    required changes.

    I do not know whether there is still a way back to some normality, or
    whether yesterday’s world is dead and can’t be resuscitated. But
    before we collapse in this grim dystopia, there is still a chance.
    Sombre Lent is almost over, and Easter is coming! It would be a good
    time to end these Corona restrictions and to let people roam free upon
    the beautiful land God gave us. As for the War on Death, President
    Trump and President Putin can declare they won it, by letting people
    gather in their churches and declare that Christ is Risen, and Death
    has been beaten at her game.

    THIS IS THE GLOBAL RESET
    by James Corbett

    April 04, 2020

    “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way . . .” -Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
    Every now and then, the world resets.

    Sometimes it’s a cataclysm or natural disaster that pushes the reset button. Sometimes it’s a political revolution. Sometimes it’s a war. Sometimes it’s a technological innovation.

    Dickens’ immortal “best of times / worst of times” formulation comes from his novel about one such reset: the French Revolution. Dickens’ words capture the dual natures of these fracture points in history. Like the old (and spurious) trope about the Chinese word for “crisis,” a reset presents both a danger and an opportunity.

    It is now apparent to all that we have arrived at another world reset. This time we are being asked to believe that it is a viral pandemic that has pushed the reset button. Others would contest that it is in fact the panic over the (presumed) pandemic that is responsible for this crisis. Yet others insist that the p(l)andemic is nothing more than a distraction from the global financial reset which was going to happen regardless.

    Whatever the case, the fact remains that the reset button has been pushed. No one knows for certain what lies on the other side of this chasm, but—as we’ve been endlessly told in recent weeks—life will never be the same.

    So, following Dickens, let’s explore the dual nature of this global reset and outline the dangers and the opportunities that this crisis presents.

    It is the worst of times.

    I don’t think I have to explain how this is the worst of times. But I will anyway.

    It’s the worst of times economically. An absolutely unprecedented 10 million Americans have filed jobless claims in the last two weeks alone, with many millions more expected to join them in the coming weeks. The numbers are similarly apocalyptic in Canada, Europe, South Korea and many other parts of the globe. The word of the year is “supply chain,” as people are starting to discover just how tenuous the links supplying the global just-in-time delivery of food and medical supplies and cars and high tech goods and basically everything else really are during a massive worldwide disruption. The Fed is outright monetizing the debt and dropping helicopter money on Wall Street as fast as it can print it up, but markets are still in meltdown. The modern-day bread lines are forming and there is no longer any doubt that we have entered the event horizon of The Greatest Depression.

    This is also the worst of times for human freedom. Half of humanity is now on lockdown orders or being requested to “self-isolate.” Borders are snapping shut and internal checkpoints are popping up in country after country as travel is further and further restricted. Police drones are increasingly being used to enforce “social distancing” and snitch hotlines are allowing citizens to police each other. Governments are now openly tracking smartphones in order to monitor all citizens’ movements at all times. Medical martial law is here, and it’s only getting worse.

    And this is the worst of times for our health. It is quite possible that a bioweapon has been wittingly or unwittingly unleashed on the world. Meanwhile, installation of 5G towers are proceeding apace, threatening to further compromise our immune systems and otherwise harm our health in the midst of this scare. Promising potential cures for whatever is going around right now are being actively suppressed by Big Pharma and their mafia buddies. And a completely novel mRna vaccine is being developed to “cure” the Covid-19 disease. Once that vaccine is ready, you will require proof of vaccination to engage in most daily activities as The National Plan to Vaccinate Every American unfolds before our eyes.

    It is the best of times.

    Given just how “worst” the “worst of times” appears to be, it might seem that there is no “best of times” to be had from this reset. But it is important to remember that a reset involves wiping the slate clean, and, as I’ve pointed out before, it is only in these moments of chaos that there is the opportunity for true change.

    If you’re reading this column right now, it’s likely that you are already aware of the need to change the status quo. Waking up to the fact that the world we inhabit is built on politicians’ lies, unpayable debt, false flag terror, and kakistocratic rule is unpleasant to say the least. But it brings with it a secondary burden: The Quixotic task of convincing those around you that there is a problem and that things need to change.

    It shouldn’t be difficult to do; after all, everyone knows that the system is broken. But the propaganda that the public is fed has been so effective, their indoctrination so thorough, that the most that the majority can muster is an inchoate rage that manifests in squabbles between neighbors rather than in attempts to overthrow the psychopaths who are attempting to enslave humanity.

    But now the reset button has been pushed.

    It is only at times like this, when everything is changing sharply and dramatically, that we have any hope of convincing the masses that something is wrong and that action has to be taken. I should know. The dramatic and spectacular false flag events of 9/11 are a key part of the reason why I ever started to question the Matrix we are living in in the first place. If this unfolding coronavirus crisis is truly a global, slow-motion 9/11, as some are suggesting, then many, many more newly unemployed and newly “radicalized” people with a lot of time on their hands will be waking up to our harsh reality very soon.

    That great awakening can’t happen soon enough. Surely it is a noble cause to stand up to the globalist agenda, but in this age of technocratic tyranny, small and isolated pockets of resistance can be quickly rooted out and squashed. Mass action will be required for us to have an effect in truly redirecting this crisis away from its current path. And now we have a real opportunity (perhaps the only opportunity of our lifetime) to shake the masses out of their slumber and motivate them into action.

    If the powers-that-shouldn’t-be had simply continued their slow boil, the frog that is free humanity would have been cooked within decades. By trying to turn up the heat and speed up the process, they may just spur the frog to jump out of the pot.

    It is what we make of it . . . but not for long.

    I’m not going to sell you false hope here. Things really are bleak. The global enslavement grid that the globalists have been crafting for decades—from the cashless society to the total surveillance state—is coming into view. There are still many in the public who are cheering this all on from their balconies, convinced that they are being “socially responsible” and helping to save lives.

    At this point, motivating the public into revolting against the system will be difficult. Those who have not yet woken up to the lies of 9/11 or the deceptions of central banking or the corruption of the medical-industrial-defense-intelligence-media complex are likely un-wake-up-able.

    Worse, no one of us has the power to change the course of these global events. No one person can stop the global economy from collapsing single-handedly. Nor can any one person stop society from collapsing. And, however prepared we may think we are, we may not even be able to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the effects of that collapse.

    But there are some things we do still control: Our ability to say “no.” Our ability to refuse consent. Our ability to resist.

    It will not be easy. It never is. Victory is not assured. And, however glorious it might sound, a martyr’s death is still death.

    No, I can’t promise that we’re going to win this battle. And I can almost assure you that there will be much grief and heartache from this point forward. But perhaps, as the reset begins and we choose how we will react to these events, we—like Sydney Carton at the end of A Tale of Two Cities—can find that there are fates worse than death.

    “It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.”

    Maybe he surrendered but I can assure him Millions of us haven’t and will not. Disobedience is already happening. Here in FL a group of about a dozen men armed with AR’s winched the concrete barrier out of the way, told the police to go fuck themselves and went about their business on the water. Many others even in the communist states are openly talking about starting their businesses up. I have NEVER seen WHITE normies so pissed off in my 49 years, and they are calling bullshit on this. YES the at risk people NEED to be inside but not the rest of us. Fuck the Government for locking in the 80% of us who should still be running our businesses and helping to develop herd immunity. The Government plan of a full lockdown is a KNOWN Failure and we’ve known this model will only result in a much deadlier 2nd wave which will coincide with Fall/winter Flu season. People are will be completely out of patience by the end of the month and angrier than ever at what’s happened to their lives as a result.

    SOME of us who do not live in fear of the government or in communists states are going to demand people be held to account for what has happened. I can appreciate those on the front lines saving people but there’s no excuse for tanking the entire country to save a couple million let alone what will ultimately turn out to be a futile act when the inevitable 2nd wave returns after the lockdown is lifted. ANYONE who is apologizing or supporting the Government’s official course of action can kiss my ass and go fuck themselves and I don’t care what you platform is or how well you can put me down in writing for saying it. This country had BETTER open the fuck back up and open up soon or it’s not only the brown orcs TPTB are going to have to worry about.

      Love your post above.
      I did a survey of most of the major hospitals here in Los Angeles.
      You can hear crickets in the emergency rooms.
      There are no thongs of infected waiting to be seen and processed.
      The ambulances are sitting still–fewersirens howling than before.

      There are no lines of ambulances waiting dockside at the hospital ship in San Pedro.
      Nothing. Zip.

      I took a close look at Providence Emergency room and hospital in Torrance, ca.
      The parking lot is empty for the whole establishment.
      Where are the sick patients?
      There are very few of them FYI.

      There is an alleged testing center two hundred yards down the street at the college–no lines. No waiting. No customers.

      This whole thing you notice is being propelled by the politicos that be in the urban areas in deep blue states (the alleged epicenters)–and being supported by a willing media who’s only job and goal is to turn it into a political nightmare for President Trump.

      I doubt the numbers being fostered by the government.
      I doubt anything that comes out of the mouth of a government employee, especially those of the military… it’s a policy of my own.

      Look at that fool Fuicci (sp?) –when confronted by a sure fire treatment for this, he is dragging his feet publicly. It’s like the 19h Century when they ridiculed Pasteur and his germ theories.

      What they have effectively done is to paint President Trump into a political corner. They even have the fools on Fox supporting their suppositions.

      The deep state has figured out a way to fuk Trump with him being able to do little or nothing about it, other than to play along with this massive ruse or look like a massive-dick.

      This is only being propelled for one reason–and that is to take a chain saw to the US economy and to take down the administration, no matter what the financial and economic costs to you and I.

      Solo, I am seeing the same thing in FL where we are now running businesses with a speak easy model. You want your coffee beans? Call me and I’ll meet you. You want your tanks filled for the next dive? Come around to the back door. Prohibition didn’t work and neither is this.

      Could I ask which boat ramp that happened at? The ramps are still open around the areas of Tampa I frequent.
