Let me preface my remarks by saying that I don't have "sources." I don't have special information, or talk with experts. I read and listen to publicly available info and use my intuition.
The corona virus is, as I said in the last post, creating a "timeout" for humanity. The virus is another wild card -- a completely unexpected event that affects large numbers of people. The virus is man-made, I believe, not a natural transmission from animal to human. It came from experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology -- the only level 4 biolab in China. Corona appeared in Wuhan city sometime in November of 2019. The Chinese Communist Party's response to the virus was/is the same as the Soviet government's response to Chernobyl in 1986: denial, coverup, and forced suppression of information, until the incident could no longer be contained. During the Chernobyl incident, a flaw in the design of Soviet reactors (known to the government) led to a containment breach. The reactor went "hot" and spewed radiation all over the place.
Denial, coverup, and suppression are the responses of a totalitarian government. I don't believe it's accidental that five years after Chernobyl, in 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed.
The four most affected countries so far are China, South Korea, Iran, and Italy. Iran and China are totalitarian states and the numbers coming from these countries aren't to be trusted, for the above reasons. The number of cases, and the number of deaths, are likely under reported. The other two, Italy and South Korea, have extensive ties to the CCP. The Falun Gong website, Epoch Times, has this to say. The Epoch Times is known for its contacts on the ground within the Chinese government, and often publishes articles based on government documents smuggled out of China.
Outside China, the spread of COVID-19 has been most severe in Italy, Iran, South Korea, and Japan. Not all of these countries are located near China, but all have extensive interests in the PRC.
Italy, the most heavily affected country outside China as of March 10, was the first (and only) G-7 nation to sign onto the PRC’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI, also known as One Belt, One Road). In an attempt to prop up its weakening economy, Italy has also sought to capture the Chinese market for selling its luxury goods.
With the outbreak now forcing Rome to put the country under lockdown, such prospects have been put on hold.
Italy also has signed scores of sister-city agreements with China, with the cities of Milan, Venice, and Bergamo included among them. These are the areas hardest-hit by the virus.
In the Middle East, Iran has seen a surge in the number of infections, particularly among government officials.
The Iranian regime has had a comprehensive strategic partnership with China since 2016, and its ties with Beijing began years before that. In violation of international sanctions, Iran has imported embargoed materials from China, while continuing to sell oil to the PRC. The Islamic Republic allowed flights in and out of four major Chinese cities until the end of February.
On-the-ground footage taken by Iranian citizens is reminiscent of the tragedy playing out in Wuhan, with overworked medical staff, despondent patients, and body bags lining hospital floors.
And while official figures released by the Iranian authorities show deaths and confirmed cases trailing behind Italy’s numbers, it is likely that the real scale of the outbreak remains grossly underreported. Reviewing available data, an epidemiologist cited by The Washington Post on March 5 estimated that the actual number of people infected in Iran could have been up to 28,000, nearly five times what the regime had reported.
In South Korea, the public has grown increasingly critical of President Moon Jae-in for refusing to ban Chinese tourists at large and instead only barring entry for those who recently traveled to Hubei Province, the epicenter of the epidemic in China.
More than 1.4 million people have signed a petition to the Presidential Blue House calling for Moon to be impeached. The petition text reads, “Seeing Moon Jae-in’s response to the new epidemic, we feel that he is more of a President for China than Korea.”https://www.theepochtimes.com/where-ties-with-communist-china-are-close-the-coronavirus-follows_3268389.html
In Iran, the senior leadership of the country has been infected. Mohammad Mirmohammadi, a top adviser to Iran's supreme leader, died of coronavirus at the beginning of March. Other top officials have contracted the disease, including members of the Iranian Parliament. 70,000 prisoners were released into the population, an acknowledgement that the rulers of Iran haven't a clue how to contain the virus.
There is debate that the coronavirus spread naturally, from bats sold in a wet market in Wuhan. I don't think so. This virus was man-made. Here's an article in Nature from 2015 that has been going around the internet. It shows how such a novel SARS virus could be created in a lab. It is titled, "A SARS-like cluster of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence."
Does this prove that a virus was created in a lab and somehow released in Wuhan? Nope. But it's likely. This was indirectly confirmed by Zhao Lijian, a rising star in the CCP, who blames the U.S. Army for releasing a lab-created virus in Wuhan!
They used the Nature paper cited above as proof of this claim. Sure. A level 4 biolab exists in the Wuhan City area, but the virus comes from the US.
The Express, a UK paper, published a story on March 7th that contradicts Zhao Lijian and the CCP. It's title is, "Coronavirus: Experiment gone wrong? Two Wuhan lab leaks exposed by Chinese scientists." The subheading is,
"CORONAVIRUS may have originated from two labs conducting research on bats just metres away from the epicentre, one of which has experienced two previous cases of SARS outbreaks, a study has found."
The article states that two Chinese scientists, Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao, published a new paper from the Beijing-sponsored South China University of Technology that casts doubt on the government’s theory.
The paper identified the second possible origin, before making a strong conclusion.
It finalised: “The second laboratory was 12 kilometres from the seafood market and belonged to Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
“This laboratory reported that the Chinese horseshoe bats were natural reservoirs for the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) which caused the 2002-3 pandemic.
“The principal investigator participated in a project which generated a chimeric virus using the SARS-CoV reverse genetics system and reported the potential for human emergence.
“A direct speculation was that SARS-CoV or its derivative might leak from the laboratory.
“In summary, somebody was entangled with the evolution of 2019-nCoV coronavirus, the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.”https://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/1251719/coronavirus-china-bioweapon-experiment-lab-leak-wuhan-seafood-market-spt
Not even the CCP is bothering anymore to support the propaganda that corona came accidentally from a wet market in Wuhan. The theme now is, "Who released the virus?" This is how suppressive regimes and cliques work. Try one lie. If that doesn't work, cover it with another lie. When that doesn't work, invent more lies. When your story collapses, accuse your critics of being "xenophobes" and "racists." You resort to name calling when you got nothing left.
According to one report I heard, many Chinese now blame the CIA for the virus, and exonerate the Party. Go figure. I am second to none in my contempt for the CIA, a nasty outfit that has sponsored regime change wars and political assassinations of foreign leaders for decades. But let's apply Occam's Razor here. The simplest explanation is the most likely. Like the dark army Soviets in Chernobyl, the CCP is trying to blame others for their mistakes.
Here's a prediction for you, based on nothing but my intuition: The CCP will, like the Soviet Union, collapse. The date? Sometime in 2023. The October Revolution in Russia took place in October 1917, after the Russian people overthrew an oppressive czar. Boris Yeltsin outlawed communism in Russia in 1991. That's 74 years. Numerologically, 74 reduces to 7 + 4 = 11. 11 is the number for Illumination or Enlightenment. The theme of the number 11 is that darkness is superseded by the light. Mao Tse-tung and his gang of thugs came to power in China in 1949. 74 years from 1949 is 2023. Illumination and freedom will eventually come to the great Chinese people. Just as we in the US are fighting a battle of dark vs light, corruption vs. illumination, so too will many other countries, including Iran. Because the Iranian government is so closely tied to the CCP, the great Persian peoples will eventually also have freedom from their oppressive government. Here in the US our own democratic system of government is collapsing under the weight of corporate corruption and influence peddling. We too will have our enlightenment as the military-industrial complex is exposed to the light of day, and our own human and drugs trafficking networks are uncovered.
The coronavirus is the beginning of a worldwide disclosure. Over the coming weeks, months, and years, the darkness on the planet is going to be exposed. This darkness is intimately connected to the worldwide arms, drugs, and human trafficking networks. The persons behind these dark networks are eventually going to be revealed by courageous whistleblowers. Satanic Ritual Abuse and human trafficking are far more prevalent than we think. Jeffrey Epstein is just the tip of the iceberg.
Coronavirus is making the peoples of the world understand how intimately connected we all are. It is the opening act on a planet that is just beginning to wake up.
