I realize we will never really know exactly how COVID-19 infected humans. Between the paranoid level of secrecy and “saving face” of the CCP and the lack of information about its’ first start on humans, anyone who really knows will ever tell. Only now, 18 months after three Chinese "scientists” working at the Wuhan lab came down with “a mysterious illness” are some truths coming to light. It is my suspicion, like many others out there, that someone screwed up and carried it home to spread to the rest of us.
If the CCP had weaponized it and actually wanted to unleash it on the world, they probably would have done it the 12 Monkeys way. Get contagious people onto multiple long international flights at the same time, making it impossible to pin down the “patient zero” and the origin of the virus.
Something like this COVID-19 outbreak concerns me, but it doesn’t scare me.
What scares me is there are groups of people out there, with access to the keys of power that were waiting for a crisis of this scale to trigger their contingency plans.
Hang with me on this. Think about what we’ve been through in the last year.
1. Federal, state and local governments ordered private businesses to cease operations. I don’t see that power granted to the government in the Constitution.
2. The debt of the federal government jumped tremendously. It’s now over $28 Trillion. Our whole economy only generates $20 Trillion.
3. Between the drop in the economy and the boost in the federal debt, our debt ratio is now over 140%. We owe more than we can generate.
Now, when a country owes more than it’s worth, well, just plug the word “hyperinflation” into your favorite search engine, with words like “Weimar Republic,” “Zimbabwe,” “Venezuela” and “Greece.”
We have also seen absurd levels of restrictions placed on the American People. From being arrested for kayaking in the ocean alone, to not being able to buy things like vegetable seeds, to a woman who was arrested and jailed for making a choice of opening her nail salon so she could earn money to feed her hungry children, and then the judge demands an apology from her, this shit has got to stop.
Logic and common sense reasoning demands the conclusion that there are individuals and groups with ill intent towards the United States and the American people out there. We see people every day actively working towards tearing this country down to the bedrock and rebuilding it in their twisted image. From the halls of power have come Common Core Math, the Affordable Care Act and more. From the common person we have political riots at a scale the Brownshirts would have applauded. Incessantly browbeating our neighbor over their immutable personal characteristics, ostracizing people for their perceived differences in belief on any subject, the list goes on. To those at the highest levels of the federal government now exposed as actively trying to pull off a silent coup through lies, misinformation and more.
I’m not saying these groups are coordinated. I actually kind of wish they were. It would be easier to stop this madness by finding one spot or several places where the proper application of force could bring the whole plan crashing down. But there’s no coordination or unifying plan. It’s like 40 six-year-old children running amok in the classroom with one teacher trying to regain order. There are children coloring on the walls, taking a crap in the teacher’s desk drawers, smoking weed in the corner, setting the curtains on fire, destroying furniture and more.
The difference between a conspiracy theory and a real conspiracy is, if you can tie up all of the loose ends into one nice, neat package, it’s a conspiracy theory. Real conspiracies are just like freedom and a healthy economy. Everyone is acting in their own best interests and on their own agenda. There are loose ends all over the place like you just flung an entire pot of spaghetti all over the kitchen.
I don’t know how or even if it can be stopped. All I can hope for is the Americans of today bring forth the spirit of their forefathers. To have a natural skepticism, suspicion and inherent distrust of the government. To take a hard look at what’s going on and knowing the difference between the government asking for social distancing, wash your hands and all the rest, versus the government ordering what businesses get to remain open, then using the police enforce those decisions. To have the backbone for when the government tries to go too far, the citizens say “NO” and have the firepower to make it stick.
What I am seeing right now is a test run. We are being tested to see how far government can push, how much the people will take and if we can be psychologically manipulated into acting against our own best interests to comply with government mandates.
Here’s what should keep you awake at night. Right now there are people taking notes on everything that worked and didn’t work. When we get out of this, those “bad actors” are going to go back to their think tanks, review the data and revise what they have. Then they will run some more experiments here and there to see if they can work out the bugs for the next time.
And there will be a next time.
