Some Weird Coincidences Everyone Should Know About

The aim of this post is to point to a number of strange coincidences surrounding this “COVID pandemic”, and let our readers draw their own conclusions without peremptorily stating what they should think.

Indeed we live in a world where truth has become harder to discern, and where even the most preposterous conspiracy theories are presented as canonical orthodoxy: for example, who can forget that story, peddled by various governments and their media lackeys, about bearded acrobatic pilots who transubstantiated 3 steel skyscrapers with 2 aluminum airplanes in New York on 09/11/01, without forgetting of course to throw their passports from the cockpit’s windows before hand?

That is to say conspiracy theories have entered the mainstream, insofar as the most incredible ones are presented as “official explanations”. The very expression conspiracy theory, weaponized by the CIA to discredit truth seekers (as revealed by declassified CIA dispatch 1035-960), does not carry the same stigma it used to.

With that in mind, please kindly consider the following information.

Event 201

In October 2019, a “pandemic exercise” was jointly organized by the World Economic Forum, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the John Hopkins Center for Health Security. Here is the link to the exercice’s website (archive).

The event simulated the worldwide spread of an acute respiratory infection caused by a coronavirus, that would progress to pneumonia and an acute respiratory distress syndrome. Here is the simulation’s short factsheet and scenario (archive, archive). The organizers have now published a statement denying their premonitory exercise actually predicted anything (archive).

The similarities do not stop there. The Event 201 “fictional coronavirus”, as highlighted in the above-linked documents, had the following characteristics:

The virus is more transmissible in mild cases than SARS-CoV, and spread by mildly symptomatic individuals is possible.

The novel zoonotic coronavirus is transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic.

Approximately 50% of cases require hospitalization, many of which in an intensive care unit (ICU).

The fatality rate in hospitalized patients is about 14%.

The overall case fatality rate (CFR) is 7%.

The average R0 is 1.74.

The incubation period ranges from 5 to 7 days.

There is no antiviral drug with an indication for coronavirus treatment, although there are several drugs, including anti-HIV drugs, that might be effective.

The exercise led to a number of recommendations (archive), which eerily describe the measures that are currently being implemented the world over. As far as we are concerned, this one stands out:

Governments will need to partner with traditional and social media companies to research and develop nimble approaches to countering misinformation. This will require developing the ability to flood media with fast, accurate, and consistent information. Public health authorities should work with private employers and trusted community leaders such as faith leaders, to promulgate factual information to employees and citizens. Trusted, influential private-sector employers should create the capacity to readily and reliably augment public messaging, manage rumors and misinformation, and amplify credible information to support emergency public communications. National public health agencies should work in close collaboration with WHO to create the capability to rapidly develop and release consistent health messages. For their part, media companies should commit to ensuring that authoritative messages are prioritized and that false messages are suppressed including though the use of technology.

Any student of history indeed realizes that the State is, across geography and history, the least trustworthy when it comes to disseminating factual information. That is why the press is called the “fourth estate” and why journalists are taught to be independent from government influence.

2019 Military World Games

On the very same day as the Event 201 simulation took place, the 2019 Military World Games were kicked-off. Commonly known as Wuhan 2019, they were held in Wuhan, Hubei, China.

This was the first international military multi-sport event to be held in China, and it also was the largest military sports event ever to be held in that country, with nearly 10,000 athletes from over 100 nations competing in 27 sports.

Despite having the largest military in the world, the US came in 35th behind nations like Iran, Finland and Slovenia. No video or photos exist of the US team, no records were kept, a huge team but a pitiful performance.

On March 12, 2020, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian published the claim that “it might be the US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan”, presumably under the cover of these military games. He further shared this article from the Website (archive 1, archive 2), titled “COVID-19: Further Evidence that the Virus Originated in the US“.

Live Exercise

In a press conference that took place on March 20, 2020, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the coronavirus crisis a “live exercise”. See the full video here. The video is archived here. The full conference is 1:33:50 long, and the unusual phrase occurs at 1:03:23.

Eerily, as Pompeo is uttering that weird statement, Donald Trump is saying, sotto voce, “[inaudible] should have let us know”.

Tying Everything Together

As we stated earlier, it is becoming harder to discern the truth, and nothing can be peremptorily concluded based only on what we have found and presented in this post. If anything, these elements produce more questions.

We will however say this: any obvious “conspiracy theory” may itself be part of a possible conspiracy. That is called subversion. Conclusions you may draw may be a result of misdirection, elaborate misinformation, or reverse psychology. In other words, propagandists may have an interest in destroying your trust in your institutions.

That is not to say public institutions, whether national or multilateral, are beyond reproach, or even benevolent at all. But still, in order to achieve a new order, one must first destroy the existing one. That is done by undermining trust, by relying on agitation propaganda, by muddying the waters, and by dividing the people along manufactured identities. Ordo ab chao.

Realize psychological warfare is a science, and that it is inherent to modern hybrid wars. Billions of dollars are spent, and have been spent for more than a century, to refine and perfect its tactics.

For example, if the “COVID pandemic” is merely “phase 2” of the Event 201 exercise, why disclose the existence of Event 201 at all? Why would China accuse the Americans, in English and on Twitter, rather than merely directing its statement at its local opinion?

And actually, is China really opposed to the USA? Or are we more in a “we’ve always been at war with Eastasia” type situation? Mao was, after all, a Yale man.

In conclusion, we recommend looking at this crisis in the wider context of the new “multilateral” world order we were long promised: a power shift away from the USA, towards Asia. That must involve a controlled demolition of the US, and the undermining of the US dollar’s status as a reserve currency. Indeed it is impossible to view this pandemic in isolation, or as separate from the ongoing Saudi destruction of OPEC and the morbid debt monetization taking place.

We will be covering these congruent developments in later posts.
