I wonder how posterity will judge present day Americans in the future. The land of the free and the home of the brave has turned into the land of the fearful and easily manipulated out of their freedom. The media began with the story of the Wuhan Virus to identify where this particular virus emanated from. Now it’s been referred to as the Coronavirus or Covid-19. It has been a story like no other to every American alive anywhere in the world today.

The media has been talking about it incessantly for quite a while now. January 21st the first positive case of Coronavirus announced in the US. Almost two months later and the stock market has gone up and down but mostly down since closing at an all-time high of 29551.42 on February 12, 2020 while closing at 19898.92 on March 18, 2020. Meanwhile the media has covered the virus like a biblical plague yet given the confirmed cases worldwide and the deaths reported, less people have died worldwide than the 80,000 Americans that died of the flu in the US alone in 2018 so why the panic?

What people fail to realize is that just because the stock market crashes it doesn’t mean everybody loses money. There are ways to make money by betting if you will that the market is going to fall. You don’t think billionaires lost a third of their wealth like the average American has do you? Of course not, so-called smart money “anticipates” upcoming potential losses and protects and or profits when markets fail.

So, if you knew that the American public could be manipulated into fear how would you go about taking advantage of that weakness? You’d flood the media with stories of people dying from a new disease from China. You’d embellish that with whispers of how it could be a biological weapon escaped from China’s only Level 4 Pathogen research center oddly enough in Wuhan China the epicenter we are told of the virus outbreak. Then sit back and plunder the stock market as the media whips up a frenzy of fear from non-stop stories of gloom and doom.

On February 24th the Dow Jones Industrial (DJI) closes at 27960.80 within 12 days over 1500 points lost and it begins. Two days later, February 26th DJI closes at 26957.59 over 1000 points lost. One day later, February 27th, DJI closes at 25766.64 almost 1200 points lost. March 9th, eleven days later over 1900 points lost. Three days later on March 12th DJI closes at 21 200.62 over 2600 points lost. March 18th the market hit its low point as the DJI closes at 19898.92 six days later over 1300 points lost. Within 35 days the DJI has lost almost 33% of its value and most Americans have lost one third of our 401K’s. An incredible loss of wealth for a nation.

Meanwhile we have governors and even some mayors telling us who can and cannot work, that we can’t worship at a time of year that is sacred to the three major religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam and what time we need to be tucked in to our homes by an arbitrary curfew enforced by police or in some cases National Guard units. All of these so-called leaders claim the legal right to enforce these restrictions on us but check your constitutions and show me where government has claimed the right to curtail liberties in an emergency. I’ll spare you some time and tell you that no one in America has a constitutional right to suspend our liberties under any circumstance yet the American people have allowed our liberties to be whittled away in the name of national security before and are doing so again without complaint.

Now, let us consider the ramifications of this virus on the world economically, politically and even potentially militarily. If you consider yourself a nation on the rise with an old geopolitical foe that you must overtake why wouldn’t a biological weapon let loose to weaken them, and their allies not be plausible? Consider that China somehow was able to avoid this contagion from reaching both its financial and politically most important cities, Beijing and Shanghai. Consider that no one from China’s Communist Party or military leadership have been affected yet the virus rages on in the rest of the world while high profile leaders from England, Canada, Australia. Spain and other countries fall victims to the disease.

I wonder what would happen if the world wasn’t being led invisibly by globalists. Would the world once recovered unite to demand China pay for the destruction that they have wrought? If the terms were insufficient would the world unite and destroy China militarily? I’m not holding my breath for that to happen though it could.

Right now, I’m watching governments across the world at all levels continue the expansion of surveillance of the people, the imperial dictates with no legal authority & the smug attitude of speaking to the American people as if we were children. I don’t know about anyone but myself but I’m getting tired of being told that my liberty is not as essential as our safety, security & health. I haven’t woken up once and said to myself,” wow the government really does care about me”. This crisis has unfolded with the assistance & complicity of the media & if that doesn’t make you wonder I don’t know what else will. I don’t think I’ve woken up lately and said to myself.” the media would never lie to me”.

Ask any American and they’ll all tell you they’ve never been through anything quite like we’re going through now. In Louisville Kentucky patients diagnosed with Covid-19 are placed on house arrest and can be forced to wear an electronic ankle bracelet to monitor their movements. In Rhode Island, the governor called out the National Guard to go house to house to determine if anyone had recently travelled to the state of New York. The list of examples of tyranny spreading literally inconceivable just two months ago yet now we are forced to consider this the new normal. Sorry I was born at night, but it wasn’t last night so I ain’t buying that nonsense.

The whole thing is surreal. We currently live in a world where half of Humanity is restricted to their homes and told not to work. This has directly and with no other rhyme or reason shuttered the US and most of the world’s economies. Imagine the entire entertainment business shut down including concerts, movies and unimaginably all sports activities. People afraid to be within six feet of someone else little less touch them. Get used to it, this is the new normal. Welcome to Wonderland!
