Putting the Cost of COVID-19 in Perspective

By Avery Koop,

When it comes to the toll on human life, mental well-being, and any long-term complications, the true cost of COVID-19 can be difficult to quantify.

That said, from a purely economic angle, researchers can and do examine these things—as well as economic data like unemployment and lost GDP, to assign dollar figures to the pandemic.

Using data from a study out of Harvard University, these visualizations focus on putting the economic cost of COVID-19 in the U.S. in perspective. To help us understand the immense price associated with a pandemic, the study looked at other comparables like the costs of running America’s longstanding war on terror.

Cost of COVID-19 vs. post 911 wars

The Cost of COVID-19

Since the pandemic took hold in the U.S. in March 2020, job loss has been one of the most significant consequences. Unemployment claims in the U.S. have recently reached a total of 60 million, while lost GDP is estimated to be around $7.6 trillion.

Unemployment, uncertainty, lost loved ones, and lost social connections, have led to spikes in depression and anxiety. In April 2020, around 40% of U.S. adults reported having at least one of these mental illnesses. Based on the sheer number of people struggling, the cost of mental health impairment could be as high as $1.6 trillion, according to these researchers.

Category Cost (Billions)
Lost Gross Domestic Product (GDP) $7,592
Premature Death $4,375
Long-Term Health Impairment $2,572
Mental Health Impairment $1,581
Total $16,120

The economic value of a human life can be put in terms of ‘statistical lives’, a notion used in both American and global health policy. While human life is priceless, the value tied to one using this metric sits between $7-$10 million. Even when using the lower end of the scale, the cost of premature death due to COVID-19 is estimated to be $4.4 trillion.

Finally, when looking at the long-term healthcare costs that could impact people who contract COVID-19, the price comes out to almost $2.6 trillion. These costs will go on for decades as certain lifelong conditions can emerge out of COVID-19, like respiratory and cardiovascular issues.

Many of these conditions could also end up causing premature deaths, drawing out the total cost of COVID-19 even further.

The Cost of War

cost of war example

Both a global pandemic and a war have long-term health consequences and are extremely pricey.

The estimated cost of the post-9/11 wars rises to over $6 trillion. This is measured by the spending of the Department of Defense, the Department of State, and USAID. The estimate also takes into consideration current and future spending on medical and disability care for veterans, the cost of war appropriations and spending, the estimated interest on borrowing for different departments, and the spending the Department of Homeland Security has done in order to prevent and respond to terrorism.

Category Cost (Billions)
Department of Defense $1,959
State Department/USAID $131
Estimated Interest on Borrowing for DOD and State Dept OCO Spending $925
Estimated Increases to DOD Base Budget Due to Post-9-11 Wars $803
“OCO for Base” a new category of spending in FY2019 and FY2020 $100
Medical and Disability Care for Post-9/11 Veterans $437
Homeland Security Spending for Prevention and Response to Terrorism $1,054
Total War Appropriations and War-Related Spending through FY 2020 $5,409
Estimated Future Obligations for Veterans Medical and Disability FY2020 –FY2059 $1,000
Total War-Related Spending through FY2020 and Obligations for Veterans $6,409

Medical and disability care for veterans from the post-9/11 wars specifically comes out to $437 billion, with estimated future obligations for their care going up to $1 trillion.

The increases to the Department of Defense’s budget was $803 billion thanks to the post 9/11 wars, and the Department of Homeland Security has spent more $1.05 trillion on terrorism prevention and response.

While the costs associated with war are immense, and while the consequences of fighting in a war are usually lifelong, the estimated price is still about $10 trillion cheaper than the cost of COVID-19 in the United States.

Throwing Money at the Problem?

The short-term solution to COVID-19 seems to be vaccine investment, with the U.S. currently purchasing more than one billion doses. Vaccines could spell the return to a more normal life, both in terms of physical health and the health of the economy.

While economic recovery is on the horizon, the U.S—and other nations around the globe—will continue to pay the cost of COVID-19 for years to come.

Study: Short Break From Cosmetics Causes “Significant Drop of Hormone Disrupting Chemicals”

By Alanna Ketler,

study led by researchers at UC Berkeley and Clinica de Salud del Valle Salinas has demonstrated how taking even a short break from various cosmetics, shampoos, and other personal care products can lead to a substantial drop in the levels of hormone-disrupting chemicals present within the body.

The results from the study were published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. Researchers gave 100 Latina teenagers various personal care products that were labeled to be free of common chemicals including phthalates, parabens, triclosan, and oxybenzone. These chemicals are used regularly in almost all conventional personal care products such as cosmetics, soap, sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner, and other hair products, and animal studies have shown that they directly interfere with the body’s endocrine system.

“Because women are the primary consumers of many personal care products, they may be disproportionately exposed to these chemicals,” said study lead author Kim Harley, associate director of the UC Berkeley Center for Environmental Research and Children’s Health. “Teen girls may be at particular risk since it’s a time of rapid reproductive development, and research has suggested that they use more personal care products per day than the average adult woman.”

Results

After just a three-day trial with the girls using only the lower-chemical products, urine samples showed a significant drop in the level of chemicals in the body. Methyl and propyl parabens, commonly used as preservatives in cosmetics, dropped 44% and 45%, respectively, metabolites of diethyl phthalate, used often in perfumes, dropped by 27%, and both triclosan and benzophenone-3 fell 36%. The authors of the study were surprised to see an increase in two lesser common parabens, but, being minor, could easily have been caused by accidental contamination or a substitute not listed on the labels.

Co-director of the study Kimberly Parra explains why having local youths participate in the study was of particular importance:

The results of the study are particularly interesting on a scientific level, but the fact that high school students led the study set a new path to engaging youth to learn about science and how it can be used to improve the health of their communities. After learning of the results, the youth took it upon themselves to educate friends and community members, and presented their cause to legislatures in Sacramento.

Included in the CHAMACOS Youth Council were 12 local high school students who helped design and implement the study. One of the teen researchers, Maritza Cárdenas, is now a UC Berkeley undergraduate majoring in molecular and cell biology.

“One of the goals of our study was to create awareness among the participants of the chemicals found in everyday products, to help make people more conscious about what they’re using,” said Cárdenas. “Seeing the drop in chemical levels after just three days shows that simple actions can be taken, such as choosing products with fewer chemicals, and make a difference.”

The researchers noted that cosmetics and personal care products are not well-regulated in this country, and that getting data about health effects from exposure, particularly long-term ones, is difficult. But they say there is growing evidence linking endocrine-disrupting chemicals to neurobehavioral problems, obesity and cancer cell growth.

What Can You Do?

Well, you can be sure to check the labels on any products you purchase. Most personal care products contain a list of ingredients, but unfortunately many cosmetics do not. If you use a particular brand that you really love you can try contacting the manufacturer directly and asking them for an ingredient list.

You can also opt for more natural and organic products, but be sure to keep in mind that in the industry of personal care products, the words “natural” and “organic” are often meaningless. A safe bet would be to buy these products from a health food store and be sure to read the ingredients or ask the sales clerk. Generally, when products do not contain specific chemicals, the manufacturers are happy to label them as such.

The less demand for these chemically-laden products there is, the less these chemicals will be used. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLAR! We have the power to create the type of world we want. Be the change.

Microsoft, Big Tech Coalition Developing Rockefeller Funded COVID Passports

‘The most significant vaccination effort in history’

By Steve Watson,

A coalition of big tech companies, including Microsoft is developing a COVID passport, with the expectation that a digital document linked to vaccination status will be required to travel and get access to basic services.

The group is calling itself the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI), and includes Microsoft, Salesforce and Oracle.

The US health provider Mayo Clinic is also involved in the project, which is being described as “the most significant vaccination effort in the history of the United States.”

The idea is now a familiar one. Anyone who has been vaccinated will receive a QR code that can be stored on their mobile phone in the wallet app. Those without phones will have access to a printed version.

We have previously reported on the development of this so called ‘CommonPass’, which also has backing from the World Economic Forum, and now more details have emerged.

“The goal of the Vaccination Credential Initiative is to empower individuals with digital access to their vaccination records,” said Paul Meyer, CEO of non-profit The Commons Project, also involved in the project.

Meyer said that the document will allow people “to safely return to travel, work, school, and life, while protecting their data privacy.”

Meyer said the coalition is working with several governments, and expects standards to be adopted that will see mandatory negative tests or proof of vaccination, in order to re-engage in society.

“Individuals are going to need to have to produce vaccination records for a lot of aspects of getting back to life as normal,” he added. “We live in a globally connected world. We used to anyway — and we hope to again.”

The Financial Times reports that The Commons Project has received funding for the project from the Rockefeller Foundation, and that it is being implemented by all three major airline alliances.

The Rockefeller Foundation has previously touted its plans for a ‘Covid-19 data and commons digital platform’ as well as a desire to “launch a Covid Community Healthcare Corps for testing and contact tracing.”

“Coordination of such a massive program should be treated as a wartime effort,” the foundation states on its website, adding that there should be “a public/private bipartisan Pandemic Testing Board established to assist and serve as a bridge between local, state, and federal officials with the logistical, investment and political challenges this operation will inevitably face.”

The group also wants to see a global standardisation of the so called vaccine passports, noting that “The current vaccination record system does not readily support convenient access, control and sharing of verifiable vaccination records.”

The coalition of big tech firms is looking to “customize all aspects of the vaccination management lifecycle and integrate closely with other coalition members’ offerings, which will help us all get back to public life,” said Bill Patterson, an executive vice president at Salesforce.

“With a single platform to help deliver safe and continuous operations and deepen trust with customers and employees, this coalition will be crucial to support public health and wellbeing,” Patterson claimed.

Mike Sicilia, executive vice president of Oracle’s Global Business Units added that “This process needs to be as easy online banking. We are committed to working collectively with the technology and medical communities, as well as global governments.”

Ken Mayer, founder and CEO of Safe Health also stated that the VCI “will enable application developers to create privacy-preserving health status verification solutions that can be seamlessly integrated into existing ticketing workflows.”

Put more simply, it will “help get concerts and sporting events going again,” Mayer said.

The context seems clear. Those without the COVID passport will not be allowed to travel or engage in social events.

Hundreds of Tech companies are scrambling over themselves to develop COVID passport systems.

As we reported last month, the IATA, the world’s largest air transport lobby group, expects its COVID travel pass app to be fully rolled out in the first months of 2021.

A further ‘COVID passport’ app called the AOKpass from travel security firm International SOS is currently undergoing trials  between Abu Dhabi and Pakistan.

We have exhaustively documented the privacy and rights concerns associated with the move toward adoption, and more importantly the global standardisation of so called COVID passports.

UK based human rights group Privacy International has warned that if “immunity” passports are issued by some governments, it could signal a creep toward “digital identity schemes” and other mandatory ID schemes.

“Once you have multiple uses (e.g. access to services) in multiple domains (i.e. public sector, private sector), in multiple countries (i.e. travel), then we are approaching a global identity document needed to live your life,” the group warned.

Sweden based human rights group The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA) warned recently that 61 per cent of countries have used COVID restrictions “that were concerning from a democracy and human rights perspective.”

Anna Beduschi, an academic from Exeter University, commented on the potential move toward vaccine passports by EU, noting that it “poses essential questions for the protection of data privacy and human rights.”

Beduschi added that the vaccine passports may “create a new distinction between individuals based on their health status, which can then be used to determine the degree of freedoms and rights they may enjoy.”

The EU’s own data protection chief Wojciech Wiewiórowski recently labeled the idea of an immunity passport “extreme” and has repeatedly said it is alarming, and ‘disgusting’.

A report compiled last year by AI research body the Ada Lovelace Institute said so called ‘immunity’ passports “pose extremely high risks in terms of social cohesion, discrimination, exclusion and vulnerability.”

Sam Grant, campaign manager at the civili liberties advocacy group Liberty has warned that “any form of immunity passport risks creating a two-tier system in which some of us have access to freedoms and support while others are shut out.”

“These systems could result in people who don’t have immunity potentially being blocked from essential public services, work or housing – with the most marginalised among us hardest hit,” Grant further warned.

“This has wider implications too because any form of immunity passport could pave the way for a full ID system – an idea which has repeatedly been rejected as incompatible with building a rights-respecting society,” Grant further urged.

Gloria Guevara, CEO of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), has also slammed the passports as “discriminatory”, saying “We should never require the vaccination to get a job or to travel.”

Speaking at a Reuters event, the head of the WTTC also condemned airline Qantas for their previous assertion that unvaccinated people would not be allowed on their aircraft.

“It will take a significant amount of time to vaccinate the global population, particularly those in less advanced countries, or in different age groups, therefore we should not discriminate against those who wish to travel but have not been vaccinated,” Guevara noted.

Nevertheless, the spectre of so called ‘immunity passports’ is looming globally.

As noted above, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has penned a letter to EU Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen, demanding that the Commission should ‘standardise’ a vaccine passport across all member countries, and that it should be required for people to travel throughout the area, further outlining that “Persons who have been vaccinated should be free to travel.”

The request is set to be debated in the coming days.

Vaccine passports have previously been touted by the EU, with officials suggesting back in April that visa applicants would also be required to be vaccinated.

EU countries including SpainEstoniaIceland, and Belgium have all indicated that they are open to some form of vaccine passports, as well as sharing the data across borders.

Denmark recently announced that it is rolling out a ‘Covid passport’, to allow those who have taken the vaccine to engage in society without any restrictions.

Poland has also announced plans to introduce vaccine passports, which will allow those who have taken the COVID shot greater freedoms than those who have not.

Having left the EU, Britain would not be part of any standardised European scheme, however it has now confirmed that it is rolling out vaccine passports, despite previous denials that it would do so.

Recently, the government in Ontario, Canada admitted that it is exploring ‘immunity passports’ in conjunction with restrictions on travel and access to social venues for the unvaccinated.

Last month, Israel announced that citizens who get the COVID-19 vaccine will be given ‘green passports’ that will enable them to attend venues and eat at restaurants.

litany of other government and travel industry figures in both the US, Britain and beyond have suggested that ‘COVID passports’ are coming in order for ‘life to get back to normal’.

In addition, hotels have also indicated they will do the same.

Insurers have also indicated that they will fall in line with any standardisation of vaccination passports, and may demand to see proof of vaccination before covering those wishing to go on holiday.

The international Travel and Health Insurance Journal reported that “If the EU obliges travellers to vaccinate, travel insurance providers may refuse to cover those who decline to have the vaccination.”

EU news website Schengenvisainfo also reported on the likely move by insurers, pointing out that anti-vaxxers will likely be specifically targeted by the mandates.

“Even if anti-vax travellers find a loophole in the requirement and manage to enter any of the Member States, travel insurance providers may refuse to cover them,” the report states.

It continues, “With the high volume of fake news and conspiracy theories that have been going on for months now on the pandemic and vaccination, the real challenge for the EU will not be to purchase the necessary vaccine doses, but rather to convince people to be vaccinated.”

The report adds that “Conspiracy theorists, in Europe and further in the world, have targeted Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who is known as a supporter of vaccination, claiming he is responsible for the Coronavirus pandemic.”

While surveys have indicated that around half the people in the world are not willing to take the vaccine at this stage. However, a recent poll has indicated that 74% of Americans say they are willing to get a COVID vaccination passport, should they be introduced in the U.S.

“655 people have $4 trillion in wealth. 200 million can’t cover a $1000 expense.”

By Michael Snyder,

The COVID pandemic has caused the gap between the ultra-wealthy and the rest of us to grow larger than it ever has been before.  Thanks to the hyperinflationary policies of the Federal Reserve and our politicians in Washington, stock prices have soared to unprecedented heights in recent months.  This pushed the wealth of the uber-rich to dizzying heights, but for the rest of the country 2020 was an unmitigated nightmare.  As I have discussed previously, one survey found that 2020 was a “personal financial disaster” for 55 percent of all Americans.  More than 110,000 restaurants shut down permanently last year, Americans filed more than 70 million claims for unemployment benefits, and tens of millions are potentially facing eviction in 2021.  But even though we are mired in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, those at the very top of the economic pyramid are laughing all the way to the bank.

Earlier today, I came across a tweet from Sven Heinrich that really struck an emotional chord with me…

655 people have $4 trillion in wealth.

200 million can’t cover a $1000 expense.

I certainly don’t have any problem with people gaining wealth by working extremely hard and making society a better place in the process.

But most of the people at the very top of the economic pyramid only increased their wealth in 2020 because the powers that be decided to open up the firehoses and rain obscene amounts of money on them.

That isn’t right.

As a result of the deeply flawed policies that were implemented because of the COVID pandemic, the gap between “gains in financial assets and the health of the economy” was the largest ever recorded last year…

But as stock market indexes staged a huge rebound from the lows seen in March when the pandemic first hit, the gap between the wealthy and the poor extended an already widening trend to historic proportions.

A report via BofA Global Research published on Friday notes that a measure of the differential between gains in financial assets and the health of the economy hit a record at 6.3X in 2020.

My regular readers are probably sick and tired of hearing me say that the stock market has become completely divorced from economic reality, and now we have a hard number which backs up what I have been saying all along.

As I write this article, the Dow is sitting just above 31,000, and that is utterly absurd.

If the Dow were to fall to 15,000 it would still be overvalued.

Meanwhile, a brand new survey has discovered that only 39 percent of all Americans “would be able to cover an unexpected $1,000 expense”

Just 39% of Americans would be able to cover an unexpected $1,000 expense, according to a new report from Bankrate.com.

That’s down from 2020, when 41% of people said they could cover a $1,000 cost with their savings.

If only 39 percent of Americans currently have enough money for such an unexpected expense, that means that 61 percent of Americans do not.

According to Google, the current population of the U.S. is 328 million, and 61 percent of 328 million is just over 200 million.

So that is where Sven Heinrich got that figure from.

200 million of us have so little money that we are just barely scraping by from month to month.

And according to one of Walmart’s top executives, many of their customers do not expect “any kind of speedy recovery”

Walmart Chief Customer Officer Janey Whiteside said Tuesday that many of its shoppers don’t expect the economy to quickly bounce back from the coronavirus pandemic.

Almost half of customers surveyed in November told Walmart that they were worried about the current health of the economy, she said when speaking at the virtual National Retail Federation conference. She said 40% said they didn’t expect “any kind of speedy recovery.”

Unfortunately, those that are pessimistic about how the U.S. economy will perform in 2021 are right on target.

It is going to be a very painful year.

Of course it isn’t just consumers that are concerned about the year ahead.  Small business optimism is falling as well

A popular gauge of small-business confidence in the US sank to a seven-month low in December as stricter lockdown measures and climbing daily case counts cut into economic activity.

The National Federation of Independent Businesses’ index of small-business optimism fell 5.5 points last month to 95.9, according to a Tuesday release. The reading lands below the average index value since 1978 of 98 and marks the lowest level since May. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg expected the gauge to dip slightly to 100.2.

Americans generally tend to be quite optimistic about the future, but looking ahead there just aren’t any reasons to be optimistic about the U.S. economy in 2021.

The COVID pandemic continues to get even worse, new lockdowns have been instituted all over the country, our federal government is in a state of chaos, and there will inevitably be more rioting, looting and civil unrest in the months ahead.

Plus, there will undoubtedly be some additional unexpected surprises that most people are not anticipating.

Before I wrap up this article, there is just one more thing that I wanted to mention.  A programmer in San Francisco named Stefan Thomas is the proud owner of 7,002 Bitcoin, but he can’t access his fortune because he forgot the password, and he only has two more tries before he is locked out permanently…

Take Stefan Thomas, a programmer in San Francisco, who told The New York Times that he has 7,002 Bitcoin tucked away — currently worth about $236 million, nearly a quarter billion dollars — but that he has no idea how to access it and can only guess two more passwords before being locked out forever.

Even setting aside the long term prospects for crypto, the key message of these horror stories is that taking digital finances into your own hands is a huge risk if you can’t manage your passwords.

Can you imagine how you would feel if that happened to you?

Sadly, it could be argued that essentially the same thing is happening to the nation as a whole.

America has “forgotten the password” to what once made us so great, and we are running out of chances.

Let us hope that we wake up before it is too late, because time is not on our side at this point.

Benjamin Fulford Letters 1/15/21: US Election Outcome Jan. 20th and Beyond

Dear Ben,

After reading M’s letter, it appears that M, myself, and certainly many other of your subscribers are desperately seeking some specific clarity as to the next 6 days and the plan for  USA Inc.  While you responded about the breakup of the US.   I would have to guess that would be something that would take place after the next 6 days    ( yes? / No? )

You and many other sources are saying over and over that  ALL the evidence is in Trump’s hands and the nature of said evidence is solid and overwhelming.   So what’s the hold-up?  We are in our last 6 days? And I would think that if the evidence isn’t disseminated in some manner,  in masse in the next 2-3 days,  then “THE PEOPLE” will not have time to digest & firmly grasp where the new reality is heading.  It’s obvious that major media is censoring Trump at every turn to try and keep things under wraps.  So what’s next?

What are your sources telling you?  What are some specific things, occurrences, etc. that your subscribers could watch for so that we may get a better handle on what’s really about to go down?

Approaching good news – I read an article about the space program and a new energy source to help get the rockets, etc. to where they want to be and at the end of the article there was mention of this same new energy source being able to provide virtually free energy to the world!  Something you have brought up before.

Best Regards,

R.

 

To be honest, I do not think anyone knows what is coming next with 100% certainty because it is literally DO or DIE for the Deep State Bad Actors in the closing stages of the revolutionary play.  That said we may see a lot of  “suicides” with no investigations in the coming weeks and months.

I say this because I am in daily touch with the CIA, FSB, Defense Intelligence Agency, MI6, P3 Freemason sources, etc. and they do not know what is going to happen with 100% certainty.  It may well be the Final Act for the Deep State Bad Actors who are ruthless and evil beyond imagination.

As a White Hat, we are instructed NOT to reveal sensitive information into the public spotlight too soon.  We are chosen as a negotiator and public face because we are not afraid to die for the just cause of bringing the truth to the world in whatever manner possible.

Please understand, secrecy is necessary to provide operational security in these final stages when any leak could alert the Deep State international swamp criminals to the venom that awaits them, with the massive sting operation that has been years in the planning.  The WDS has an ongoing operational exchange with Pentagon White Hat sources in order to provide security as well in Asia.

There are some indications the Deep State realizes that Trump is not just looking for reelection, he’s completing the work of JFK who got knifed in the back by Bush Sr. and the European Banksters, when he tried to end the CIA and Fiat-Debt-Based “Currency” Insta-Magic-Credit System. Let’s call it the FDBC- IMCS for short.

Perhaps Trump is just a frustrated patriotic businessman who was recruited to become President and complete the White Hat triangle of Constitutional power necessary to defeat the dark enemy of mankind and bring in a new age of awakening and freedom from financial slavery.

Catching the corrupt MSM and social media swamp creatures going way over the line into electioneering, with whatever fabrication necessary to demonize Trump and the Patriots, may prove to be a key element of the sting operation.  And now the net is tightening as the share prices of Twitter and Facebook plummet.  Print media and broadcast networks are also in line for a complete housecleaning.

The Deep State is making its last stand now that its members realize they’ve lost at the political game of chess.  The report on election interference by a foreign government is still due to be released.

Trump is cleverly taking back control of the Constitutional Republic and destroying the central banking system like Andrew Jackson.  He’s freeing the country from financial slavery, which, through the power of pubic awareness of a global audience, may eventually cause all the other BIS central banks to fall like dominoes around the world.

All half-a-dozen countries, including Canada, involved in the election fraud are being identified with power-outage special operations and curfews.

When all is said and done, as a Canadian who has traveled and lived throughout North and South America, I envision a unified region of cooperation through the exchange of goods and services for mutual benefit.

But still, the revolutionary play has time left to feature Pelosi’s closet being opened with the investigation announced Jan. 6th into her father, initiated by JFK.  It’s starting to look like Trump will follow what JFK tried to do and finish the job.

One scenario could have the internationally-coordinated Biden election fraud revealed before Jan. 20th, which under the EO of 2018 would make the election null and void and bring in an interim military government.  This patriotic military government, operating under the laws and rules of the Constitution, would finally have a chance to look at all the “MSM nonexistent” election fraud.  During an interim period, military tribunals will expose the right and left Deep State swamp criminals and a new political party emerges – Great America.

On March 1st, the investigation into the 2020 election fraud is concluded and the actual results are certified.  On March 4th, Trump is inaugurated as the first president of the United States of America Republic.  It’s really a shame, but due to the China Virus the U.S. Corporation and the Federal Reserve Bank both declare bankruptcy.

Another scenario might feature a 70% purge of the Deep State Actors in the Senate and House, facilitating November 3rd, 2021, Senate and House elections using paper ballots.  The shocking revelations of the Cabal’s U.S. political and global crime syndicate spawn a worldwide phenomenon of awakening.  This is the result of weeks of military tribunal evidence shown worldwide over the Emergency Alert System and all nationalized media found guilty of electioneering on behalf of a foreign power in a federal election, in violation of the 2018 EO.

It’s now public that Pelosi’s laptop data got retrieved during the staged event on Jan. 6th.  And I suspect it’s no coincidence that Trump delayed his speech by one hour to make sure it would be distinguishable that his supporters were still listening at the rally, at the same time Antifa stormed the Capital.  The sting has collected evidence of bused-in, with DC police escort, antagonists dressed up in Trump supporter gear with Confederate flags.  Credits perhaps to Soros Jr. who has a budget for good Insurrection-OP scriptwriters.

It now appears the Trump Sting operation is in the closing stages.  If successful, it may hold the promise of a historic transformation into the next evolution of the planet, with a financial system that doesn’t burden workers with unnecessary interest on a nation’s money supply, created as virtual-world, credit debt “money of account,” to be repaid with real-world goods and services “money of exchange”  and additional compound interest.  For anyone not familiar with the power of compound interest as a financial weapon, please Google it at your own risk.

Having said all that, based on everything I am hearing we are dealing with a group that is above the level of visible governments and headquartered in Switzerland.  They planned this ongoing COVID-19 campaign at least as far back as 2012 in order to reduce the world’s population by 90% and enslave the rest.

The problem is that they have control over most of the visible leaders on Earth through a combination of bribery, brainwash, and blackmail. This means we need to remove the heads of state for most of the G7 countries in order to deal with this. My understanding is that this process is underway but the problem is so many people have been conditioned into following orders that we need to let the current system collapse further before it will be possible to reboot it.

Joe Biden was rarely seen in public during the entire so-called election campaign, and it’s uncertain if he even exists mentally or physically anymore.  Has anyone seen him recently taking a group photo with the Joint Chiefs?  Realistically, there is no way they could ever accept him knowing he is a traitor to his country multiple times over, even before the 2020 election fraud.  It’s truly amazing the depths that the Deep State will sink to, to make sure Biden gets presidential immunity from prosecution and the big hairy plug remains in the bottom of the swamp.

My understanding is that the Rockefellers, Rothschilds, and associates, made a deal with China “to elect Biden,” and then remove him after a short interval and put Kamala Harris in power.  They must have felt they had to do this or watch their USA Corporation go bankrupt.

In any case, the battle is raging.  There is a lot of stuff I cannot talk about but we have specific actionable intelligence that could end the COVID campaign.

To summarize there will be chaos and systems collapse over the coming months in the West, and only then will something better emerge.

BF

p.s. Since “Nothing Can Stop the Storm” I would point out that this Memorandum signed by the Joint Chiefs doesn’t appear to be dated, making it technically incomplete at some intermediate stage of certification, and may become known as “The Trump Card” for posterity when the storm hits.  Make your enemy think you are at your weakest when you are at your strongest in the Art of War.

Poland Becomes Latest Country To Roll Out Vaccine Passport

By Joseph Jankowski.

Poland has become the latest country to roll out a “vaccine passport” that will give those vaccinated against the coronavirus the ability to exercise exclusive rights.

Polish deputy Health Minister Anna Go?awska has stated that Poles who receive both doses of the COVID-19 vaccination will receive a vaccine passport which will come in the form of a QR code through an electronic public health account – presumably a smartphone application.

The QR code “will be the so-called passport of the vaccinated person, which will confirm that the person has been vaccinated and can use the rights to which vaccinated people are entitled,” Go?awska added.

As Euractiv notes:

The idea was included in Poland’s National Immunisation Program, adopted by the government in December, which stated that vaccinated people will be able to use public health services without additional testing, not be included in the measures for socialising and they also won’t have to quarantine after being in contact with a person infected with COVID-19.

While not specifically mentioned by the Polish Health Minister, it will remain to be seen if the passport is needed for crossing borders while traveling. Considering it is called a “passport” – along with the adoption of such a document by other countries in recent months for the purpose of travel – points to it inevitably being needed to cross international borders at minimum.

The country had received its first shipment of the two-dose Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in December.

Poland’s decision to issue the vaccine passport comes on the heels of reports that the United Kingdom is set to roll out a similar electronic document for trial in select areas of Britain.

The London Telegraph reported on Tuesday that biometrics firm iProov and cybersecurity firm Mvine have developed a vaccine passport which will be optionally provided as a smartphone app for Brits vaccinated against COVID-19.

Its rollout will take place in two jurisdictions and monitored by the government until March.

UK Public health officials say the passports will help monitor who has received the vaccine.

The Russian government began issuing vaccine passports to inoculated citizens at the start of the year for the purpose of traveling across domestic and international borders.

DenmarkIsrael, and the Canadian Province of Ontario have also either announced a vaccine passport or that they are exploring the idea.

As we continue to highlight, the stage appears to be set for a vaccine passport standard to be rolled out worldwide as major players in the global travel industry have signaled that such a document will be an inevitable feature of the “new normal.”

In fact, Singapore Airlines in December became first major carrier to introduce a digital health certificate to verify passengers’ testing history and vaccination status.

Los Angeles schools demand COVID-19 vaccination before return to campus

A coronavirus vaccine requirement, Superintendent Beutner asserted, would be ‘no different than students who are vaccinated for measles or mumps.’

By Patrick Delaney,

Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Austin Beutner said on Monday that COVID-19 vaccines will be mandatory for in-person students once they become available.

A coronavirus vaccine requirement, he asserted, would be “no different than students who are vaccinated for measles or mumps,” the Los Angeles Times reports. Speaking in a prerecorded briefing, he compared staff, students, and others receiving the COVID-19 shots to those who “are tested for tuberculosis before they come on campus. That’s the best way we know to keep all on a campus safe.”

While the vast majority of school campuses remain closed, Beutner said the state authorities should create standards for reopening all schools, “clearly justify the directives, and then require campuses to open when the standards are achieved.”

Parents who don’t want their children to take the vaccine, at the prescribed time, Beutner assures, “will always have the option for a child to stay in online learning and therefore not have to go back to campus.”

Proposing a justification for this policy, the Los Angeles Times cites the district’s internal testing program which reportedly found that “[n]early 1 in 3 asymptomatic students from some lower-income communities … turned out to be infected” in one week of December. “At the time of the test, the children reported feeling no effects of COVID-19. Asymptomatic carriers can still spread the virus to others and might later develop symptoms,” they said.

While this assertion of asymptomatic transfer is routinely made in the mainstream media, there is very little evidence for it. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) itself admitted back in June that such transmission is “very rare.” In a study released by the University of Florida last month, they found “no asymptomatic or presymptomatic spread” of COVID-19, while another study of almost 10 million people in Wuhan, China, found that asymptomatic spread of COVID-19 did not occur at all. These findings undermine the need for lockdowns and school closings altogether, which are built on the premise of the virus being unwittingly spread by infectious, asymptomatic people.

It is also important to note that COVID-19 has a 99.6 percent survival rate, which is virtually 100 per cent for those under 20 years old, and an average age of death of about 82 years, similar to the normal lifespan.

With regards to school policy, former member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force Dr. Scott Atlas explained, “The point about the schools is really critical because this is the most irrational public policy probably in modern history. Children have virtually zero risk of getting a serious complication, virtually zero risk of dying … You don’t lockdown the children because you are personally afraid. That’s totally outrageous.”

Further, there remain significant concerns regarding these COVID-19 vaccines, which have been rushed through the process of development, testing, approval, and now distribution, with a new “messenger RNA” technology, no industry-standard animal trials, nor any sufficient studies on long-term effects.

These concerns included “allergic” and “potentially fatal reactions,” risks that these vaccines may cause infertility in women, result in an increased vulnerability to the virus, and present unacceptable dangers of long-term effects due to a lack of proper testing.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration also drew up a document this fall listing the possible side-effects from a COVID-19 vaccine, including strokes, encephalitis, auto-immune disease, birth defects, Kawasaki disease, and death.

Present reports reveal that hundreds of individuals injected with these vaccines have been admitted to the hospital, and at least two have died.

As is well-stated in a formal letter signed by almost 3,000 European doctors, “If 95% of people experience Covid-19 virtually symptom-free, the risk of exposure to an untested vaccine is irresponsible.”

Indeed, Dr. Joseph Meaney, president of the National Catholic Bioethics Center, affirms that informed consent is not even possible for these new vaccines since long-term effects remain unknown due to the lack of extended testing. Thus, any use of coercion of persons to take such a vaccine, including the exclusion of children from in-person instruction, remains “ethically unacceptable.”

Though their voices are systematically suppressed by media and Big Tech corporations, tens of thousands of doctors, scientists, and medical practitioners have signed the Great Barrington Declaration which calls school closings “a grave injustice,” and asserts that “those who are not vulnerable (to the virus) should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal,” while incorporating “simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick.”

Therefore, these doctors affirm, “Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume.”

Out of concern for a similar policy of mandated vaccinations being implemented in New York City schools, teachers there have organized to protest, sponsoring a petition which at the time of this writing has garnered over 17,000 signatures.

Confirmed: Britain Will Issue Vaccine Passports (Not Long After Lying They Have No Such Plans)

Male person is planning the next vacation trip. A digital vaccination certificate is displayed on the mobile phone, which confirms that a COVID-19 vaccination has been carried out.
The content on the mobil phone has been designed by myself. No difficulties with copyright. All contents of the vaccination pass are fictitious.

Despite previous government denials that there are any plans to roll out COVID vaccine passports, reports have confirmed that every person vaccinated in two select areas of Britain will be offered exactly that as a ‘trial’ being rolled out with immediate effect.

The London Telegraph reports that biometrics firm iProov and cybersecurity firm Mvine have developed the vaccine passports, which will be optionally provided as an app on phones of those vaccinated.

The government will conduct the rollout in two local authorities, and monitor its application until March.

The report notes that the government has ploughed £75,000 into the trial already, which is claimed to be a way of monitoring who has had the vaccine.

Frank Joshi, director and founder of Mvine noted that while the project started as just a way of keeping a record of COVID tests, extra funding was pumped into it in order to turn it into a vaccine passport scheme.

“Originally we started off with this need to prove whether you’ve had an antibody test, but it can be equally used to demonstrate whether you’ve been vaccinated,” Joshi said, according to the report.

Andrew Bud, chief executive of the other company involved, iProov, said that the system will be integrated with the National Health Service, and could easily be rolled out to everyone in the country.

“We’re talking about a piece of remarkable technology that can be brought to bear and can be readily integrated with the NHS,” he said.

The development appears to be separate from the government contracts given to two other firms to develop COIVD ‘freedom passports’, which we reported on several weeks ago.

Last month, Britain’s vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi announced that the government had no plans to introduce immunity passports en mass, or place restrictions on those who do not take the jab.

This latest revelation puts Zahawi’s already dubious claim into serious doubt.

We also previously reported, back in November, on the UK government’s active plans to develop a QR code system to use as an ‘immunity passport’.

The report, stemming from sources close to the government, noted that “Those who refuse to get the Covid-19 jab would likely be refused entry to venues, as part of the same proposals.”

Other reports have suggested that an app already used prominently in the UK by people to book doctor and hospital appointments could implement a vaccination status section that will show whether a person has taken the coronavirus jab or not, and that businesses may use it to refuse entry to those who have not.

The spectre of so called ‘immunity passports’ is looming globally.

Yesterday it was revealed that Denmark is the latest country to announce that it is rolling out a ‘Covid passport’, to allow those who have taken the vaccine to engage in society without any restrictions.

Recently, the government in Ontario, Canada admitted that it is exploring ‘immunity passports’ in conjunction with restrictions on travel and access to social venues for the unvaccinated.

Last month, Israel announced that citizens who get the COVID-19 vaccine will be given ‘green passports’ that will enable them to attend venues and eat at restaurants.

litany of other government and travel industry figures in both the US, Britain and beyond have suggested that ‘COVID passports’ are coming in order for ‘life to get back to normal’.

Sam Grant, campaign manager at the civili liberties advocacy group Liberty has warned that “any form of immunity passport risks creating a two-tier system in which some of us have access to freedoms and support while others are shut out.”

“These systems could result in people who don’t have immunity potentially being blocked from essential public services, work or housing – with the most marginalised among us hardest hit,” Grant further warned.

“This has wider implications too because any form of immunity passport could pave the way for a full ID system – an idea which has repeatedly been rejected as incompatible with building a rights-respecting society,” Grant further urged.
