Encounters Of An Average American Nobody With The ‘Curious’ COVID New World

Authored by Doug “Uncola” Lynn via TheBurningPlatform.com,

Last week, I read an online article in my local paper telling of a 68-year-old gentleman who died from COVID-19. In the article, it described how the man had retired in the last year because of cancer. Then, two days later, my wife asked me if I had read the article. When I said that I had, she responded:

“Scary, huh? He was healthy.”

I replied:

“What do you mean? He had underlying issues“.

And when we logged-on to read the article again, it was tagged as “updated 7 hours ago” and many of the words I’d read two nights before were…. gone.

In the paragraph where it said he retired, it mentioned nothing of his cancer and instead described how the man was “active and enjoyed riding his bike”.

Of course, even a tin-foil-hat-wearing blogger like me would have a hard time believing that any conspiratorial pressure could be applied to my local paper. Perhaps the family requested the change or the original article was in error. It’s hard to say.

But I do know what I read. And, the internet archive “Way Back Machine” showed the URL as being updated on March 31, 2020 and again on April 2, 2020, but the initial article was not archived. Now I wish I’d have taken a screenshot of, or printed, the original post.


Because of, as delineated in my last six Coronavirus articles, the dubious origins and timing of the outbreak, the coinciding events, how COVID-19 has been reported, and the questionable responses of governments and organizations around the world.

Everything is suspect and it’s not difficult to differentiate between reporting and propaganda; because there’s an agenda behind propaganda. Always an agenda. That said, it is difficult to discern truth in a bubble – which is basically what America has become – an electronic bubble full of colorful programming and strategic deception.

You can call me a conspiracy theorist and that’s fine; although I prefer critical thinker. For example, is it a “conspiracy” when a pandemic “exercise” undertaken by specific “players” is publically known? As stated in my last article:

….. there have been many oddities during the Coronavirus outbreak. One peculiarity is how the same players consistently appear to advance the narrative; to wit, Bill Gates, John Hopkins University, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO). These show up almost everywhere Coronavirus tales are told and, perhaps unsurprisingly, participated in the October 2019 Event 201 Pandemic Exercise – a near-exact simulation which took place a mere few weeks before the current COVID-19 outbreak went viral globally.

Even on the Event 201 website the “prominent individuals from global business, government, and public health” who participated were identified as “players” which, in fact, should be interpreted as practicing for the real thing.

Again, please note how an entity entitled the “World Economic Forum” co-sponsored the Event 201 exercise along with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation & John Hopkins University:

Event 201

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted Event 201, a high-level pandemic exercise on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.

And now consider this article dated March 31, 2020 describing a “project” the World Economic Forum “has christened” as “Known Traveler Digital Identity (KTDI)”.

KTDI is a “surveillance-by-design” vision for tracking and control of travelers…

KTDI would use a blockchain-based distributed ledger to bind together, through an app on a traveler’s mobile device, all of the following data:

– Biometrics (initially facial images, possibly also fingerprints, etc.)

– Government-issued ID credentials (passport number, etc.)

– Travel history including logs of border crossings, hotel stays, and possibly also car rentals and/or other events

– Purchase logs and possibly bank account information and/or other financial and transaction records

– Pre-crime predictive “risk assessment” and profiling scores generated at each “intervention” point before and during each trip or transaction

Additionally, Microsoft founder Bill Gates has been all over the news lately advocating for new initiatives such as “disease surveillance, including a case database that is instantly accessible to relevant organizations, and rules requiring countries to share information” and “Digital Certificates to be issued to those who have been tested for COVID-19.”

Gates has also recently offered his unsolicited national advice on “best-case scenarios” for American “total isolation” measures as well as “social distancing” and “mandated shutdowns”. Moreover, during a CNN Global Town Hall on March 26, 2020 Gates outlined three steps for the U.S. Government’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak to include lockdown, testing, and vaccination.

Did you vote to elect Bill Gates to advise on public policy in America? Because I didn’t. Was he appointed by someone? Because, paradoxically, we’re witnessing the founder of a software company that spies on its customers now advising a government that violates the constitutional rights of its citizens.

Should it be any surprise, therefore, the response to COVID-19 has served the Orwellian ends of tyranny, centralization, and control?

In an article from early March 2020 entitled “Six Reasons Why Covid-19 Fails The Sniff Test”, I wrote:

It also has become completely obvious that certain names/entities consistently appear in the COVID-19® coverage (in both the mainstream and alternative media): The Gates Foundation, John Hopkins University, and UK’s The Guardian.

And a recent article posted a few days ago described nine governors of U.S. states “resisting stay-at-home orders” and how the pressure brought to bear on them has been formidable; perhaps not unlike the pressure American citizens now face if they don’t wear masks in public. Contained in the above-linked article is a map courtesy of The Guardian, Event 201 sponsor John Hopkins University and, apparently, George Orwell:

Notice how the polka-dots are blood-red? It’s like the splatter on a wall at a murder scene – all for psychological effect. Because nothing is random.

In the meantime, citizen journalists are ignoring their shelter-in-place orders to see if there are other reasons why “authorities” want people to remain in their homes. The below video demonstrates a stark contrast between official Orwellian narratives versus the cell-phone footage of multiple Americans at various hospitals around the country. It is over 27-minutes in length but, at the very least, view the 4.5-minute segment from the 17:45 mark to the 22:23 mark where an administrator of an urgent care facility assaults a citizen journalist for merely asking questions:

Furthermore, other videos have been posted online including dummies being used in (apparently) staged pandemic footage and one even by a hospital worker who claims Coronavirus is a lie.

Can you explain this? Because I can’t. In fact, it raises more questions. Why would locals participate in a cover-up? What kind of leverage could be applied on them to lie? And if there is something amiss afoot – as the multiple videos seem to show – wouldn’t there at least be some more whistleblowers? I mean, wouldn’t more patriots emerge to confirm any deception and pressure? And, why haven’t the videos been censored on YouTube?

Regardless, look around and see how far the entire nation has progressed in such a short time.

This last weekend, I drove to a big box store for some lumber and outdoor supplies as the wife rode along to pick up a few items at a nearby grocery. Inside the big box retail center, several customers were wearing masks and some had on rubber gloves. The cashiers now check people out behind sheets of plexiglas as the new authoritarian messaging sounds “social-distancing” instructions overhead and even now barks orders up from the floor: “WAIT HERE”

At the grocery, I remained in the rig as the wife completed her shopping. A masked female Caucasian placed her items in her car, doused her hands with sanitizer, lit up a smoke, and then drove away. Another woman returned to an SUV where her husband and kids awaited. The man popped the hatch and secured their groceries as his wife returned the cart. They both hand sanitized and drove away. A black woman exited, got in her car, checked her phone and drove away.

There’s no denying the fact COVID-19 has, at the very least, infected the minds of the masses. It has become a VERY big deal worldwide. Perhaps because it is a bioweapon killing legions of folks. Yet I told my wife I’m having difficulty accepting the new dystopia because my instincts tell me the billionaires have gaslighted the world – that it’s an illuminati mind-f*ck.

Still, at the same time, I know a young man who recently came back from spring break and now has all of the COVID-19 symptoms. He was denied a test by his local hospital and told to self-quarantine. Then my wife read me a tweet from a nurse who said not to believe any of the reports we see on television. She said they’re only working half shifts at her hospital.

And, yet, the psychological suppression is complete in all but a few, and most Americans now remain in shock. They’re scared because it has become such a big deal. They see it every day; many from behind their masks.

Currently, small businesses have collapsed and Wal-Mart has gained new dictatorial powers to the point of restricting how people can move and shop in their stores; and concurrently denying the ability of customers to grow their own food by mandating garden items as NON-essential.

Undeniably, the Centralizers have the momentum. Or, rather, the momentum has been building for decades. Anything outside the domain of the Centralizers has been deemed a threat: growing food, harvesting rainwater, or even treating COVID-19 with malaria drugs and/or hydroxychloroquine.

Coronavirus has become the musical force of musician Frank Zappa’s “Joe’s Garage” that so threatened the “Central Scrutinizer”:

This is the CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER… it is my responsibility to enforce all the laws that haven’t been passed yet. It is also my responsibility to alert each and every one of you to the potential consequences of various ordinary everyday activities you might be performing which could eventually lead to The Death Penalty….

.. Our studies have shown that this horrible force is so dangerous to society at large that laws are being drawn up at this very moment to stop it forever! Cruel and inhuman punishments are being carefully described in tiny paragraphs so they won’t conflict with the Constitution … which, itself, is being modified in order to accommodate THE FUTURE.

It remains to be seen whether the New Society transitions into tyrannical centralization or neo-localism; even if the momentum currently favors the former. To be sure, we have progressed to the point it would take a nation of rugged individualists and freethinkers, indeed, to turn this coronavirus-riddled ship around in time to arrive in a new age of innovation, localism, and self-reliance.

But, hey, anything can happen, right?

Well, maybe not.

No matter what, though, understand this: The billionaires are completely committed. They’ve crossed the Rubicon; they’ve passed the point of no return. They can’t go back because this either ends with them against walls and hanging from ropes or with the masses in digital chains. And they’re very close to succeeding.

It’s a war. And, so far, the momentum is on one side.

It is possible the narrative may be unraveling, however, because I know some sleepy sheeple who are now questioning the official reports. So maybe it means we’re close too. But close never wins anything. Not in a war.

In the meantime, the media onslaught is dialed to maximum volume. The other night I saw a commercial on TV where the following message was repeated several times:

“Staying home saves lives!”

And I started to wonder if that wasn’t a threat?

We also now have helicopters flying above American public spaces dictating Orwellian messages to the proles:

“For your own safety and for your family’s safety, please maintain social distancing“.

Doesn’t that sound like a threat? I might think so if I didn’t fully understand how government’s throughout history have always been completely dedicated to the welfare of their citizens. The State is here to protect and serve, correct? Because… if even TIGERS in a New York Zoo can get Coronavirus, then it must be bad. Super bad. We must be protected. We must be safe.

And the babies! The poor little babies.

We must think of the children!

I wonder if historians looking back on this time will comprehend the paradoxes: As societies ostensibly sought to save each other, they oppressed one another; in a time of social distancing families sheltered-in-place together; and, as headlines screamed, people wearing masks were silent.

A few nights ago, I looked up at the stars and they seemed more intimately near for some reason. I was thinking about summer coming soon and thought of the neighbor kids home from school playing under the sun.

I contemplated the old Bible stories: Of those who built their houses on sand compared to those who built on a solid foundation. How the storms came and the wind blew, and all was carried away but for some. Also Noah’s Ark and the fate of those drowning unprepared.

I considered Neo in The Matrix as well, when my kid and I were experimenting with Zoom video conferencing while on two separate floors of the same home. We were exploring privacy settings and I wanted to see some of the hosting configurations so I stepped away from my office to go look through the other portal. Soon, I was peering down back into my own tiny world. Without me, my office looked like a set on a Hollywood stage. It was surreal. Like I had passed on and was floating above…. or merely remembering. I wondered if there was a difference.

Coronavirus has driven us even further into the grid – where gnostic spirits, and hidden eyes, can see. And strange ears hear. The cameras now peer into private honeycombs all throughout an immense hive of lives separated.

My own custom-built system has no camera or audio capabilities, but I can hook up a video/audio feed through USB and disconnect when not in use. Of course, all the Zoom settings default away from privacy; like our smart(?)phones and all of the other apps in the Matrix.

It won’t be a virus that kills us in the end. History will show we died of convenience.

The COVID-19 Hoax

The COVID-19 Hoax.

COVID-19 = SARS 2 = SARS-CoV-2.

SARS is an acronym for “Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome”.

The SARS 1 = SARS-CoV-1 = SARS-CoV virus was responsible for the 2003 SARS epidemic in China/Asia.

The COVID-19 virus was initially called the SARS-CoV-2 virus because genetically it is almost the same as the more deadly SARS, or SARS-CoV-1, virus. However, the name was changed because it was not wanted that the general population associate the two. Well, technically the name of the virus was not changed, they just changed the name of the disease to COVID-19 while leaving the name of the virus as SARS-CoV-2.

The SARS-CoV-1 virus (9–11% mortality) is much more deadly than COVID-19 (the mortality is debated, perhaps 1-3%) but did not spread much beyond Asia before it died out.

To throw the whole COVID-19 epidemic into perspective it should be emphasized that every year there are between 294,000 and 518,000 deaths from influenza. You can read about this here:


300,000 to 500,000 dead every year.

300,000 dead in a good flu season.

500,000 dead in a bad flu season.

You may ask why there is no global lock-down for influenza.

You may ask why the media shows no concern at all for the hundreads of thousands of mainly elderly people who die due to this on-going influenza epidemic.


There is a lot of interesting information on various epidemics at https://nextstrain.org/ncov

Have a look.

However, there are a few reasons to worry about nextstrain.org‘s reporting of the COVID-19 epidemic.

1) They do not include any RNA sequences of the Iranian strains of COVID-19.
2) They do not include any data at all on SARS-CoV-1.
3) They have removed/hidden the data points from the ship Diamond Princess (which showed that the COVID-19 variety on the ship was American).
4) On March 29 the number of sequenced RNA sequences went down which seemed strange. This was acheived by the date range being set differently. First the end date was set March 25 (instead of March 29) and an hour or two later it was set to March 27, so that the latest data is hidden. Perhaps someone is embarrassed that the evidence does not support the media’s (clearly wrong) story.
5) March 30: It is noteable that they have finally got around to adding Iran to their list of countries, but have not as yet added any Iranian data.
6) April 2: The is end date is still set to March 29, althought the total varieties/genomes is now 2629. Still no Iranian data.

Note: RNA is like DNA. It is the genetic code of the virus.

The lack of Iranian strains at nextstrain.org is possibly because the Iranian strain is quite different, and this would indicate that a more lethal variety of the virus had been deliberately released in Iran. In fact, nextstrain.org may have been set up with the intention of hiding the fact that the Iranian variety is noticeably different (like some have claimed). The reason that such a scheme would work is that people would naturally believe; “The Iranian variety cannot be too different, otherwise experts would have pointed this out, and the evidence would have been reported at nextstrain.org.”

The lack of data concerning SARS-CoV-1 may be due to the SARS-CoV-1 virus giving a positive for COVID-19. And this would bring into question the results of the COVID-19 testing.

The data from nextstrain.org

The March 28 2020 data shows the existence of 2084 different varieties of COVID-19 worldwide. It also shows the existence of 341 different varieties of COVID-19 in Iceland.

The 341 varieties/genomes from Iceland prove that the virus already existed in Iceland prior to Wuhan.

The 2084 varieties/genomes worldwide prove that the virus already existed worldwide prior to Wuhan.

So, COVID-19 existed last year, and the year before, and the year before,…

People have probably been getting sick from various vareities of Covid-19 for decades.

Possibly, people have been dying of various vareities of Covid-19 for decades, only in the past it was called, the flu, or pneumonia, or similar. Since, sequencing of the RNA was not done, and tests for the Covid-19 strain did not exist, no one knew it was Covid-19.

The current “theory” is that all Covid-19 varieties/genomes emerged from one that “appeared” in Wuhan in December 2019. That is, all the 2084 Covid-19 varieties mutated from an original Wuhan virus.

This hypothesis means that all the 2084 Covid-19 varieties have developed within the last four months.

But this is an unheard of and impossibly high rate of evolution.

The fact that the virus already existed previous to Wuhan is also suggested by various people who are unlikely to have been in recent contact with the virus, e.g., Boris Johnston, Rand Paul, Prince Charles, etc, testing positive. And by the many people who test positive, but have absolutely no recollection of the disease (because they had it years ago).

The Covid-19 test looks for antibodies that the body has used to fight the disease. It does not tell how long ago the disease occurred. The assumption is that it MUST BE very recent. But that is only because “everyone” believes that everything started with Wuhan, which it didn’t.

The deliberate spreading of the virus was probably only to China, Iran, and Italy, where more virulent strains were released.

Train travel tells a story about COVID-19.

It is obvious that the story we are being told about the COVID-19 epidemic is very wrong.

Everyday 34 trains leave Wuhan for Shanghai.
These trains usually carry 600 or 1200 passengers.
Let us assume that only 50 passengers on each train travel from Wuhan to Shanghai.
For simplicity, we assume this whether the trains carry 600 or 1200 passengers.
So every day 34 * 50 = 1,700 people from Wuhan go to Shanghai.
The virus circulated in Wuhan for roughly 40 days before the authorities took action.
Therefore 34 * 50 * 40 = 68,000 people from Wuhan end up in Shanghai.
These 68,000 + those arriving by plane + those arriving by automobile, result in 353 confirmed cases of Covid19.

More than 68,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Shanghai resulting in 353 cases of Covid19.

Everyday 35 trains leave Wuhan for Beijing.
These trains usually carry 600 or 1200 passengers.
Let us assume that only 50 passengers on each train travel from Wuhan to Beijing.
For simplicity, we assume this whether the trains carry 600 or 1200 passengers.
So every day 35 * 50 = 1,750 people from Wuhan go to Beijing.
The virus circulated in Wuhan for roughly 40 days before the authorities took action.
Therefore 35 * 50 * 40 = 70,000 people from Wuhan end up in Beijing.
These 70,000 + those arriving by plane + those arriving by automobile, result in 442 confirmed cases of Covid19.

More than 70,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Beijing resulting in 442 cases of Covid19.

Everyday 37 trains leave Wuhan for Chongqing.
These trains usually carry 600 or 1200 passengers.
Let us assume that only 50 passengers on each train travel from Wuhan to Chongqing.
For simplicity, we assume this whether the trains carry 600 or 1200 passengers.
So every day 37 * 50 = 1,850 people from Wuhan go to Chongqing.
The virus circulated in Wuhan for roughly 40 days before the authorities took action.
Therefore 37 * 50 * 40 = 74,000 people from Wuhan end up in Chongqing.
These 74,000 + those arriving by plane + those arriving by automobile, result in 576 confirmed cases of Covid19.

More than 74,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Chongqing resulting in 576 cases of Covid19.

Everyday 84 trains leave Wuhan for Guangzhou.
These trains usually carry 600 or 1200 passengers.
Let us assume that only 50 passengers on each train travel from Wuhan to Guangzhou.
For simplicity, we assume this whether the trains carry 600 or 1200 passengers.
So every day 84 * 50 = 4,200 people from Wuhan go to Guangzhou.
The virus circulated in Wuhan for roughly 40 days before the authorities took action.
Therefore 84 * 50 * 40 = 168,000 people from Wuhan end up in Guangzhou.
These 168,000 + those arriving by plane + those arriving by automobile, result in 1,357 confirmed cases of Covid19.

More than 168,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Guangzhou resulting in 1,357 cases of Covid19.

Over the same time period, less than 1000 Chinese from Wuhan arrive in Iran.
These are supposedly responsible for 12,729 confirmed cases by March 16.

Less than 1,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Iran resulting in 12,729 confirmed cases.

Over the same time period, less than 1000 Chinese from Wuhan arrive in Italy.
These are supposedly responsible for 21,157 confirmed cases by March 16.

Less than 1,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Italy resulting in 21,157 confirmed cases.

What I know is that the number of one-way tickets from Wuhan to Paris in the first quarter 2019 was 4,232.

Using this 90 day period as a proxy, this is 4,232 * 4/9 = 1,880 passengers for the 40 day period of interest.

Also known is that the number of passengers to Iran or Italy was less than those to Paris

The guess of 1,000 passengers from Wuhan to Italy & Iran is a guess based on this (1,880 figure).

It is an educated guess.

Gathering the summaries together we have:

CODE: SELECT ALLMore than 68,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Shanghai resulting in 353 confirmed cases.
More than 70,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Beijing resulting in 442 confirmed cases.
More than 74,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Chongqing resulting in 576 confirmed cases.
More than 168,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Guangzhou resulting in 1,357 confirmed cases.
Less than 1,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Iran resulting in 12,729 confirmed cases.
Less than 1,000 Chinese from Wuhan visit Italy resulting in 21,157 confirmed cases.

The confirmed cases are those reported on March 16, 2020.

How is it visitors from Wuhan to major Chinese cities have an almost zero transmission rate?

Yet we are told that visitors from Wuhan to foreign countries have a very high transmission rate.

How can this be?

Wuhan is in the middle of China.

How could the disease bypass all the major Chinese cities and massively infect huge numbers in foreign countries?

Why didn’t the disease infect large numbers in the major Chinese cities?

Conclusion: The story we are being told about Covid-19 = SARS-CoV-2 is a big lie.

Plane travel tells the same story as train travel.

We use the one-way bookings from Wuhan to various countries in the first quarter of 2019 to estimate the number of airline passengers. The top ten destinations from Wuhan were:

CODE: SELECT ALLThailand 74,185
Japan 29,710
Taiwan 25,752
Hong Kong 21,852
Malaysia 19,105
Korea 18,623
Australia 15,020
Cambodia 13,456
USA 13,267
Singapore 12,959

Note that neither Iran or Italy are in the top ten destinations.

We are interested in 40 days from the 90 day period, so we multiply by 4/9. We have:

CODE: SELECT ALLMore than 32,971 Chinese from Wuhan visit Thailand resulting in 827 confirmed cases of Covid19.
More than 13,204 Chinese from Wuhan visit Japan resulting in 1,140 confirmed cases of Covid19.
More than 11,445 Chinese from Wuhan visit Taiwan resulting in 215 confirmed cases of Covid19.
More than 9,712 Chinese from Wuhan visit Hong Kong resulting in 386 confirmed cases of Covid19.
More than 8,491 Chinese from Wuhan visit Malaysia resulting in 1,624 confirmed cases of Covid19.
More than 8,277 Chinese from Wuhan visit Korea resulting in 9,037 confirmed cases of Covid19.
More than 6,675 Chinese from Wuhan visit Australia resulting in 2,044 confirmed cases of Covid19.
More than 5,980 Chinese from Wuhan visit Cambodia resulting in 87 confirmed cases of Covid19.
More than 5,896 Chinese from Wuhan visit USA resulting in 46,450 confirmed cases of Covid19.
More than 5,759 Chinese from Wuhan visit Singapore resulting in 509 confirmed cases of Covid19.

Conclusion: The virus was deliberately spread to certain areas. Other areas were forgotten about.

Facing US Bio-Warfare: An open letter to President Trump from the people of the world

SARS-US, MERS-US, COVID-US; the World Deserves Answers

Larry Romanoff is a retired management consultant and businessman, bio below

Questions the US government needs to answer:

1. On the topic of the US using biological weapons in China and North Korea, almost everyone today knows the truth, the huge volume of accumulated evidence beyond dispute. After lying about it for 70 years, would you care to finally admit what you did? (1) (2) (3)

2. In your decades-long campaign of biological warfare against little Cuba, including the distribution of hemorrhagic fever, and the swine flu that caused Cuba to kill all 500,000 pigs in the country, the evidence of US responsibility is overwhelming. You have not only lied about this for 70 years but tried to turn the tables by accusing Cuba of being “a pariah state” with a germ warfare program. Would you care to retract your false accusations and finally admit to the world what you did? (4) (5) (6)

3. Please explain why the US has some 400 military bio-weapons labs scattered in (mostly poor and backward) countries around the world, including new ones in Georgia, Ukraine, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan. Why not build them in your own back yard? Several nations are demanding that you dismantle these labs and take them home where they belong. Do you intend to comply? (7) (8) (9)

4. In 2004, the Hong Kong Wenweipo published an article titled, “Earliest SARS outbreak suspected in the US”, quoting AP and Reuters about a 45-year-old American woman who became gravely ill with typical SARS symptoms a few months prior to the outbreak in Hong Kong and who died within a day, with the entire hospital and about 80 other individuals with whom she’d had contact all being immediately quarantined. Wenweipo, Chinese researchers, Russian virologists, and military experts speculated the SARS-US virus was necessarily man-made and almost certainly released from a US military lab, the US leak being covered up. Would you comment, please? (10)

5. Can you explain how the Western (US) media immediately and unanimously knew SARS-US was caused by civets when for months nobody on the ground knew anything factual, and later almost everyone on the ground was suspecting Fort Detrick as the source? SARS-US was released in China, in Guangdong Province, but patient zero unfortunately immediately traveled to Hong Kong, sparing China but devastating Hong Kong instead. Would you comment?

6. COVID-US, like SARS-US, appears to be Chinese-specific, 99.5% affecting only ethnic Chinese, with no infected foreigners in Wuhan or China, which naturally raises questions. Harvard University – with apparent funding from the US military – conducted a series of illegal and outrageously unethical “studies” in China (after having been specifically forbidden to do so), surreptitiously collecting hundreds of thousands of Chinese DNA samples, then illegally removing them from the country. Many questions were raised about the (military) application of those samples. Would you care to comment? (11)

7. Please can you explain why MERS-US exploded in South Korea at the JUPITER-ATD bio-weapons lab on the US Airbase at Osan, and why more than 100 South Korean soldiers were suddenly quarantined on the base? (12)

8. Please would you explain why Ebola emerged simultaneously in three different locations thousands of kilometers apart, each within a stone’s throw of a US military bio-weapons lab? (13) (14) (15)

9. Please would you explain why the US military seems to be taking such a strong lead in the COVID-US outbreak in South Korea, and why US servicemen have such frequent contact, “hanging with a Jonestown outfit” (16) like the fanatic Shincheonji religious cult who have been the source of most COVID-USA infections in South Korea? Please would you also explain the coincidence of both MERS-US and COVID-US appearing to have perhaps originated from the same JUPITR-ATD labs at the same Osan Airbase?

10. You recently commented that you could kill the entire population of Afghanistan within days. “Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the Earth. It would be gone and this is not using nuclear. It would be over in – literally, in 10 days.” How, exactly were you proposing to do that? Biological weapons would seem the only alternative. Viral Hemorrhagic Fever and Hantavirus worked for the US in North Korea once; they should work again. Please elaborate. (17) (18) (19)

11. Please would you explain to China and the world why the CDC shut down the Fort Detrick USAMRIID bio-weapons lab? Was it really due, as your media claimed, to a simple “lack of procedure”? Barring massive contamination and/or infections, why was that huge (80,000 sq. meters) site kept sealed for six months of testing and decontamination before being permitted to only partially resume work? Also, could you explain why most English-language news websites were suddenly scrubbed of all reference to the closure of Fort Detrick when the coronavirus erupted in Wuhan? (20) (21)

12. In October of 2019, your country hosted Event 201 that appeared in retrospect to have been a live simulation of the virus outbreak that occurred in Wuhan shortly after. Also, in a 2019 Netflix documentary titled “The Next Pandemic”, your Bill Gates predicted a pandemic resulting from a coronavirus-like outbreak – starting at a Chinese market. Can you explain these apparently startling coincidences? If Event 201 was an innocent civilian exercise, why was the CIA involved as a participant? Did they conduct the simulation?

13. Odd that in the months prior to the coronavirus outbreak (and again during the epidemic), China was hit with 4 unexplained viral outbreaks in quick succession, new or unusual animal viruses that destroyed much of the nation’s livestock and poultry, causing much economic damage and necessitating the purchase of large volumes of US agricultural products. It would seem that Mother Nature decided to align herself with US foreign policy, not only joining your trade war and assisting your effort to ‘bring China down’ but her apparent unprecedented complicity in choosing the worst possible time of the year and perhaps the worst possible location. In your opinion were these mere coincidences, a run of bad luck, perhaps? Please would you comment, and would you care to predict where this will end? (22)

14. It seems the swine flu that devastated China’s livestock in 2019 was not an act of god or nature but was done by unknown persons flying small drones over the country’s pig farms and infecting thousands of locations, resulting in the culling of more than 100 million pigs. Does this seem unusual to you? Would you care to comment on the probable culprits? (See note 2. above) Please note that “Chinese gangs” and “pork speculators” have already been eliminated from suspicion. (23)

15. With regard to COVID-US, we don’t believe it was brought to China by infected soldiers at the Wuhan military games. If that had been true, all foreign soldiers would have been infected first and taken the virus to their home countries, but events did not progress in that sequence. Please would you tell us how it might have happened? Certainly, the Chinese people have a right to know.

16. It has been conclusively proven that COVID-US did not originate at the Wuhan market, nor in Wuhan at all, nor in China. Further, the virus strains in most nations are different from the one that contaminated Wuhan. Please would you comment on this, in light of your “Chinese virus” statements? (24)

17. Similarly, the people in Italy and Iran would like to know how different strains of the virus might have traveled to their countries. As well, the entire world is wondering why there were two large waves of global infection, the first infecting 25 countries at the same time around January 25, and the second with 85 countries simultaneously experiencing explosive domestic multiple outbreaks within a few days of each other around February 25 – and mostly different from the strain in China. Since only the US has all the various strains, it would seem those infections must have originated in your country. Would you care to explain how this might have happened? (25)

18. Following the above, Japan, South Korea, Italy, and Iran all reported that their domestic outbreaks of COVID-US had no confirmed cases of exposure with China but showed a connection with the United States. Similarly, Australia claims 80% of its infections came from the US, other countries also identifying infections that were Made in America. As well, the huge pent-up eruptions in Washington and New York were entirely domestic in origin, having no proven connection with China. Please will you explain this? (26) (27) (28)

19. China, Italy, and several other nations in Asia and Europe now have documented proof that COVID-US was circulating in their populations for several months before the outbreak in Wuhan. Japan and Taiwan have documented proof that several Japanese became infected in Hawaii in late September of 2019. Please would you address and explain this? (29) (30)

20. Two years ago, John Bolton fired the entire executive group responsible for pandemic response coordination, eviscerating your nation’s infectious disease defense infrastructure. In light of current events, can you explain his actions and your approval of them? You also cut funding for the CDC, eliminating 80% of their global disease prevention efforts, in other words, the department that could have helped other nations detect and control the epidemics they later suffered. More specifically, a key CDC epidemiologist was embedded in China’s disease control agency, but you eliminated her position and brought her home shortly before the virus outbreak in Wuhan. Please explain why you withdrew her at that particular time. (31) (32) (33)

21. For COVID-USA, why did the CDC forbid testing of Americans? Why did the CDC refuse to test even those already in an ICU and on a ventilator? Was it to prevent Americans from learning of the epidemic already loose in their country? Why was Dr. Helen Chu issued a threatening “cease and desist” order to stop testing nasal swabs her flu research team had taken in Washington State from October 2019 onward? Was it to prevent the knowledge emerging that the virus had already been circulating freely months earlier? This is pertinent because normally the reason we don’t ask a question privately is that we already know the answer, and the reason we don’t ask the question publicly is that we don’t want anyone else to know the answer. (34)

22. CDC Director Redfield admitted that US flu deaths were actually from the coronavirus. How many of the 35 million infections and 20,000 deaths were misdiagnosed? Was this accidental? When the cause of death was discovered in autopsies, why was the information kept secret? Why were deceased victims’ families told they died of influenza when the death certificates read “coronavirus”? (35)

23. I have many messages from Americans in Washington, New York, California, Maryland, Virginia, and other states claiming infection, mostly in the latter part of December of 2019 but several as early as late September, all describing similar symptoms consistent with COVID-US.

“I am sure you get thousands of emails but wanted you to know how much I enjoyed and believed your article. I have been trying to find this information online. I firmly believe I am one of the US citizens who had this virus in December 2019. Please continue your research.”

“I live in southwestern Pennsylvania. I became sick very quickly on December 23 at work. I figured I had caught the flu. Although it was unlike anything I have ever had before. In hindsight, I see that I had all of the exact symptoms of the Coronavirus.”

“It was September 30 2019-October 9 2019 when my husband was hospitalized.”

Please would you comment on the apparent existence of COVID-US being widespread in America from September 2019?

24. The WHO emphasized the most important thing was to “test, test, test”, but the US is the one country that steadfastly refused to test, using many excuses that appear both lame and suspicious in retrospect. Harvard Global Health Institute’s Dr. Ashish Jha said America’s “response has been abysmal. It’s hard to imagine how they could’ve done it worse. We’re still the only major country in the world that [is not doing] widespread testing for coronavirus . . . That’s insane given our technical and scientific capacity.” Please would you comment on this? (36)

25. You gave yourself a top grade in handling this crisis, saying, “I’d rate it a 10. I think we did a great job.” Would you care to explain how you arrived at that figure? Meanwhile, even the NYT disagreed with you, saying, “The failure to tap into the flu study [Dr. Helen Chu], detailed here for the first time, was just one in a series of missed chances by the federal government to ensure more widespread testing during the early days of the outbreak, when containment would have been easier.” Please would you comment? (37) (38)

26. Your White House and US media made much play of the proximity of the Wuhan University to the seafood market – where you claimed the virus outbreak originated. Please would you have one of your staff perform a map search for the following address?: Trade Tower I, No. 568, Jianshe Avenue, Jianghan District, Wuhan 430022. (39) Now, would you care to write a paragraph on the following topic: “US Consulate General suspiciously close to the seafood market in Wuhan”?

27. In early March you amazingly declared as classified all COVID-US information and meetings, with all communication to be rerouted through the White House and coordinated with NSC officials. Only specified individuals with security clearance are permitted to attend secret meetings, with no mobile phones or computers allowed. Excluded staff members claimed they were told virus information was classified “because it had to do with China”. Please will you comment on the need for such extreme secrecy (while condemning China for lack of transparency), and please would you explain how coping with a virus epidemic in your country has anything “to do” with China? (40) (41) (42)

28. Virologists are unanimous that the first act after a pathogen outbreak (whether natural or contrived) is to hunt down the source and locate the ‘patient zero’, so as to stop the infection at its origin. All major countries made great efforts in this regard – except the US who made no apparent effort of any kind. Please could you explain why this is so?

29. For several months now, Chinese, Italian, and Iranian Medical and State authorities have been calling for international collaboration to trace the precise genetic trail of the global outbreaks and identify the true origin of the virus. Since all of the humankind desperately wants the answers, is the US cooperating in this effort?

30. The US media made a great fuss about China punishing its so-called whistle-blower Li Wenliang, some inventing false claims he was forced into a confession and even imprisoned. The official narrative, of course, is that America treasures its whistle-blowers while the Chinese are mean to theirs. But today, Li Wenliang is a national hero in China. Would you care to comment and compare his position with those of Edward Snowdon, Julian Assange, and Chelsea Manning?

31. It is documented that your Radio Free Asia created and promulgated widely the falsehoods that the University at Wuhan is a bio-weapons lab and the coronavirus leaked from there. Since Radio Free Asia is an integral part of your misinformation machine and reports to Mike Pompeo, would either he or you care to comment on this apparent slander?

32. Your White House and media have tried to shame China with accusations and insinuations of a bad record of biological pathogen leaks, even though China had only two or three small leaks about 10 years ago, and nothing since. However, your own CDC verifies that between 2005 and 2012 the US had 1,059 instances of theft or leaks of dangerous pathogens that broke containment. One every three days for seven years. Please would you comment on this disparity? (43) (44) (45)

33. A virus test in China costs less than $100 and is paid by the government. In the US, the cost of the same test ranges between $1,500 and $3,000 and must be paid by the patients – who may have no health insurance. Please would you comment on the relative attractiveness of the US Health Care System, and please would you note for whom it is attractive?

34. This is the documented China timeline for the COVID-US outbreak:

Dec 26, 2019: Jixian Zhang detects four anomalous pneumonia infections in Wuhan and reports them to the provincial CDC the next day. The provincial authorities immediately inform the national CDC which prepares to implement the pandemic response protocols. Prior infections had still not been grouped or identified.

December 30, 2019: China’s national CDC notifies the WHO.

December 31, 2019: The WHO publicly reports the new virus outbreak.

January 7, 2020: Chinese virologists identify the virus and confirm a full genome sequencing five days later.

In light of the above, please would you explain your claims that Chinese medical authorities “covered up” the outbreak and “cost the world two months” of preparation time. The claimed two-month delay would mean China had to notify the world in October of a virus that would not emerge for another six weeks. Please would you elaborate on your claims?

35. If it were China with the above history and SARS, MERS, AIDS, EBOLA, bird flu, swine flu, and COVID-19 first erupted in the US, you would claim this as 100% proof that China was responsible. It cannot be a surprise that much of the world today is naturally tending to lay these outbreaks at your doorstep. Would you care to comment?

36. Mr. Pompeo instructed the global State Department staff to vigorously blame China for COVID-US, although I believe Mr. Pompeo is on record as having stated that the government “lies, cheats, and steals” in order to accomplish its objectives. If memory serves, he publicly admitted that lying is one of the most powerful American abilities, sprinkling baseless accusations like pouring dirty water into clean water, to leave a polluted slurry. Since Mr. Pompeo functions at your pleasure, would you please comment on the extent to which you share his philosophy? (46) (47)

37. Mr. Pompeo issued the global State Department staff with specific orders to paint the US “in every interview” as “The greatest humanitarian nation in the history of the world”. But you recently increased sanctions on Iran, preventing the purchase of critical medical supplies, and you ensured the World Bank would decline Venezuela’s plea for financial medical assistance. While China, Russia, and Cuba have sent medical supplies and physicians to nearly 100 nations around the world, your USA has provided assistance to nobody. These actions would seem inconsistent with your self-image of a ‘great humanitarian nation’, instead of appearing to the world as almost savagely inhuman. Please would you reconcile this apparent discrepancy?

38. Many people in Iran and Venezuela too, are dying every day now as a direct result of your policies. Please would you explain the pleasure derived from killing?

39. Recent news reports that you called the President of tiny South Korea to beg for medical supplies. That seems a bit pathetic, but perhaps you could explain. Reports that China is shipping thousands of tonnes of medical supplies to the US. Would you care to comment on the position that the world should treat the US as the US is treating Iran, and refuse to send anything?

40. The 1918 “Spanish” influenza pandemic that killed between 20 million and 50 million people were proven to have originated in the US and propagated throughout the world from secrecy and recklessness. The 2008 H1N1 pandemic also originated in the US and spread through the world from the same causes, your CDC for 6 months unable or unwilling to identify the pathogen, while maintaining the secrecy and promoting misinformation, causing between 200,000 and 500,000 premature deaths worldwide. HIV-AIDS also originated in the US, its simultaneous spread to two other continents still a matter of fierce debate. Would you care to comment on US culpability in these deadly epidemics? Do you plan to apologize to the world for your carelessness? Would you support class-action lawsuits in favor of the victims?


I believe the truth about COVID-US will eventually come out. There must be many people with personal knowledge of the source and method of distribution. What we need now is one more brave Edward Snowdon or Chelsea Manning to leak the information. We will then see how truly the US treasures its whistle-blowers.
