VSF: I have not said anything about the Virus spreading from China because there have been so many conflicting confusing reports and endless disinformation. We all know that we cannot trust what our own government says or the monopoly-media in the west — and it is said that the Chinese government is even worse. In China there is no difference between the media and the CCP, the Chinese Communist Party. Those who disagree with the propaganda of the CCP are considered to be ‘out of harmony’ with the state and subject to punishment.
So what can we know?
On the practical side, I would suggest — as have many others — that you prepare for the worst and hope for the best. This means get some food and other supplies, as much as you can reasonably afford. Notice the shelves of markets quickly emptied out in the quarantined shops in China and Hong Kong. I don’t know about the actual efficacy of the N95 face masks, but if you can get them, it cannot hurt to have them on hand. Water, toilet paper, batteries, canned goods — all the usual items that allow you to be prepared.
There does seem to be credible evidence that the virus is a bioweapon. Exactly who developed it and where, is still debated. A scientific paper [linked below] suggests that the virus targets mainly Asian males — however any virus can mutate, so we have no idea of the future.
Looking for the source of the virus, I suggest as usual that you consider the Draco Reptilian and Zeta Reticuli Grey Invasion Agenda. E.M. Nicolay has said that the Zeta Greys in particular are highly advanced in the sciences of manipulating DNA. Most of the Zeta Greys are in fact clones because they lost the ability to reproduce naturally and have been conducting ongoing experimentation in manipulating DNA. Our current Earth science has been busy with DNA research, including bioweapons for decades. Sick.
What we do know is that the virus spreads very quickly. The Chinese government would not have taken such drastic measures if this epidemic were not a real threat. One very real possibility is the break down in supply lines. China now manufactures and consumes a large portion of the global economy. This may be the ‘black swan’ even the markets have feared and may bring about the collapse of the global economy.
We are every day being inundated with the metal oxides in the global aerosol spraying operations that are also a part of the Draco-Zeta Invasion Agenda. Our immune systems are being continually worn down and that will make us more vulnerable to these viral pandemics. The goal is to kill most of us off and enslave the rest — who are likely hybrids.
The Arctic and Antarctica are melting. Our oceans are dying, our lands poisoned with toxic chemicals, and the air that we breath carries aluminum, strontium, barium, lithium, fungi, and more.
VSF: I received this from a friend in Spirit this morning and I was in fact actually thinking along the same lines.
“If the whole Universe has come into being just to get us back to God, I would say the pressure has been upped considerably.”
VSF: If we are to watch millions die and nations collapse, then those who are ready will be ‘pressured’ to fully realize the temporal nature of this realm — which is merely a temporal ‘appearance’ and the self-generated projection of our individual consciousness working through the Matrix [Prakriti in the Sanskrit] with her modes [GUNAS: rajas, tamas, sattva] and five sense perceptions.
All the sacred ‘work’ we have done as vehicles of Truth [SATYA] will bear fruition and we will find our Way Home at last. Some of course may choose to remain for the sake of others.
In either case, this time can be seen as a Blessing — a Call [PUKAR] from our Source and the God Force that dwells within All.
Bhagavad Gita V.22-24:
External objects have beginnings and ends — therefore the enlightened find happiness internally!
VSF: Always Know and Remember that God dwells within you, me, and everyone, permeating everything everywhere, ubiquitous, All pervading, eternal, immeasurable, immutable.
God is Love. Love God and God will embrace you.
List of over 100 Dead Microbiologists – Prepare For Change
Single-cell RNA expression profiling of ACE2, the putative receptor of Wuhan 2019-nCov | bioRxiv
“This result is highly consistent with the epidemic investigation showing that most of the confirmed 2019-nCov infected patients were men
We also noticed that the only Asian donor (male) has a much higher ACE2-expressing cell ratio than white and African American donors (2.50% vs. 0.47% of all cells). This might explain the observation that the new Coronavirus pandemic and previous SARS-Cov pandemic are concentrated in the Asian area.”
“U.S. corporations that assume their supply chains will return to normal in a week or two are in for a big surprise: consequential chunks of their supply chains, likely chunks they never paid much attention to, will dry up and blow away. The factories will not re-open, and the workers won’t return.”

Was it ever plausible that China’s economy could grind to a halt and there wouldn’t be any consequences for the U.S. economy? No.
Alas, mass delusions always end badly.
Many commentators talk about supply chains in China, but how many have actually visited factories in China, other than carefully choreographed PR visits to suitably high-tech facilities? I’ve visited many factories in China, and not with a staff of minders who swiftly guide the visitors through the happy story of high-tech wonderland.
I’ve visited some high-tech facilities but also many low-tech factories, where most of the supply chain originates, usually with one or two bored local government functionaries. You get a much less distorted view of the supply chain on the ground, away from the carefully guided tours.
Since we weren’t important visitors, nothing was staged. Workers glanced at us, as in what are they doing here?, but otherwise we simply observed everyday operations.
As I’ve reported here for a decade, profit margins in the vast majority of these supply chain companies are wafer-thin, with 1% being bandied about as a typical profit margin. Due to the extremely distorting way imports and exports are recorded, as little as $10 of every $400 iPhone “imported” from China actually stays in China as wages, overhead and profit. We estimate China only makes $8.46 from an iPhone.
Most of the high-value components are manufactured elsewhere in the world, and all the profit and overhead flows to Apple HQ in Cupertino, California.
The reality is that much of the supply chain is at risk of financial collapse. Many if not most of the thousands of spontaneous protests in recent years in China are not political; they’re workers demanding back pay or promised bonuses from shuttered supply-chain companies.
Here’s how bankrupt supply-chain factory owners deal with bankruptcy: they leave in the middle of the night and vanish. The workers get stiffed and there’s no recourse, no court hearing, no nothing.
The financial underpinnings of the supply chain have been eroding for years, as this unvarnished December 2018 report from a Chinese economist explains.
A Great Shift Unseen Over the Last Forty Years: Look at our profit structure. To put it plainly, China’s listed companies don’t really make money. Then who has taken the few profits made by China’s more than 3,000 listed companies? Two-thirds have been taken by the banking sector and real estate. The profits earned by 1,444 listed companies on the SME board and growth enterprise board are not even equal to one and half times the profit of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China.
China’s economic decline indicates that there is a major issue with the focus on expansion and growth: It has deviated from the fundamental and moved to speculation. These are the words of former chief of Chinaâ€™s central bank, Zhou Xiaochuan.
What are our current financial risks? They are hidden, complex, acute, contagious, and malevolent. Structural imbalance are massive, and violations of law and regulations are rampant.
We have rampant speculations everywhere, in too many aspects. In short, it’s arbitrage.
In other words, a consequential percentage of the supply chain companies in China are only viable due to expanding debt and speculation. Any disruption of this fragile balance between losing money manufacturing/assembling but covering the losses with risky speculative gains will sink the companies: the doors are locked and the owners disappear rather than face the music.
The unpaid workers have little choice if they can’t find a job within days: they have to return to their ancestral villages and towns, where paid work is scarce but it doesn’t take much to get by.
The cost of living in China’s major cities has been soaring for years, and factory workers’ pay has not kept up. If jobs dry up, or the employer doesn’t pay the promised wages and bonuses, hanging out in expensive cities with no income is not an option.
Some workers may opt to return home just to avoid getting the coronavirus in crowded dormitories and factories.
U.S. corporations that assume their supply chains will return to normal in a week or two are in for a big surprise: consequential chunks of their supply chains, likely chunks they never paid much attention to, will dry up and blow away. The factories will not re-open, and the workers won’t return.
Any way they cut it, costs will rise whether Corporate America seeks suppliers outside China or alternative suppliers in China. With global wages stagnant for the past decade or two, raising prices is a non-starter. Net-net, corporate profits will fall even if sales remain robust, which is unlikely given the world’s largest economy and manufacturing center is grinding to a halt.
Once the supply chain breakdown comes home to roost in Corporate America, the mass delusion that the U.S. economy is invulnerable will collapse in a heap. Was it ever plausible that China’s economy could grind to a halt and there wouldn’t be a domino-like collapse of all the weak links in its supply chains? No. Companies living on debt and speculation only needed the slightest push to careen off the cliff into insolvency. The coronavirus is that push.
Wuhan Coronavirus, Jeffrey Epstein, and Harvard University
tldr: Epstein gave exorbitant amounts of money, at least $9 million (pledged $30 million) to researchers funded by DoD, DARPA, IARPA, and NIH at Harvard University with the expertise and technology to genetically engineer and improve bacteria and viruses.
One of Harvard’s most prominent scientists who received $18 million from DoD and NIH was arrested and charged for operating a secret lab in Wuhan China just hours ago – This researcher was given over $1.5 million dollars to do so, in secret, by Chinese institutions. Meanwhile, the area where the new coronavirus emerged (Wuhan) recently opened a biosafety level 4 lab (the only one in China, a country with 1.4 billion people) where researchers were actually studying and experimenting with the genetics of coronaviruses over the past few years before the emergence of this new strain. Whether these things are linked or not remains to be see, but each of these independent statements are in fact true.
In a way this post contains two distinct conspiracy theories, that I suspect may be linked together, hence my post.
In the last 24 hours, a colleague of Dr. Church and Dr. Nowak, Dr. Charles Lieber, Professor and Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University, was arrested and criminally charged over a contract he made with a foreign university. Where? In Wuhan, China. As a side note, it’s worth pointing out to those unaware that all three of these people are some of the highest-ranking academic officials at Harvard and are revolutionary scientists in their respective fields. They would not at all be considered just minor or just moderately important figures at Harvard.
According to the Justice Department: “Lieber, 60, lied about his contact with the Chinese program known as the Thousand Talents Plan, which the U.S. has previously flagged as a serious intelligence concern. He also is accused of lying about about a lucrative contract he signed with China’s Wuhan University of Technology.”
Apparently, amongst other things, Lieber established a secret research lab at the Wuhan university and was given $1.5 million dollars by the Chinese (in addition to salary and living expenses) to do so. Meanwhile “Lieber was also the principal investigator on at least six U.S. Defense Department research grants, with a cumulative value of more than $8 million, according to the affidavit. It also says he was the principal investigator on more than $10 million in grants funded by the National Institutes of Health.” So, Dept. of Defense… NIH…
The Pandemic Isn’t Ending, It’s Just The Beginning Of Global Disorder & Depression
Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,
When you’ve been lied to, you’ve been betrayed. Betrayal has consequences.
Unsurprisingly, denying the pandemic is unstoppable and consequential is the order of the day: authorities everywhere are terrified these realities might leak through all their oh-so-obviously desperate firewalls and filters. Why are they terrified? Because they know the entire global economy, including the linchpin Chinese and U.S. economies, was extremely fragile before the pandemic arose: why else the panic-stimulus and panic-repo policies of the Federal Reserve and the People’s Bank of China in the pre-pandemic months of Q4 2019?
And so everything is covered up, and if that doesn’t work, then outright denial is the default policy. The number of cases globally is absurdly understated, the number of deaths in China is absurdly under-reported, and so on.
But the biggest denial campaign is aimed at masking the fragility of the global economy, as the only thing keeping the rickety, speculative-bubble, insolvent global economy from imploding is the belief and confidence of the masses that everything is going swimmingly, so keep on borrowing, borrowing, borrowing, buying, buying, buying and speculating, speculating, speculating.
While the real-world battle to limit the spread of the virus in China gets the headlines, the battle inside your head to maintain your confidence in the system is just as important. Economists talk about recession and depression in quantitative terms: deflation, sales, profits, employment and so on.
The key dynamic in recessions and depressions is confidence: confidence that the condo you buy today will be worth a lot more tomorrow, the business investment you make today will generate higher profits tomorrow, your job benefits will increase tomorrow, your house value will rise tomorrow, and so on.
Once confidence in ever-higher wages, benefits, sales, profits and speculative gains withers, all bets are off. The loss of confidence is akin to a loss of faith or loss of credibility: none of these can be restored overnight. Once your confidence that a speculative gamble will pay off is dashed, you’re not going to rush out to make the same gamble tomorrow.
Once your trust in authorities has been shattered by gross incompetence, authoritarian suppression and a laughably unbelievable tsunami of lies, you don’t wake up the next morning with your trust in bogus statistics and reassurances fully restored.
Once credibility has been destroyed by an endless parade of fabrications, lies and transparently false reassurances, your faith and trust that what you’re being told 24/7 is actually true is not magically restored.
Loss of confidence, trust, faith and credibility are self-reinforcing. Once you realize your speculative gamble is not just no longer going up but it’s crashing, you want out, not in. Once you see your neighbors going broke, you shut down your business before you lose everything.
Confidence doesn’t just evaporate; it’s replaced by uncertainty, anxiety and fear. Better safe than sorry becomes the implicit context: better to close now than gamble on a magical-thinking return to normalcy tomorrow. Better to go back to the ancestral village now rather than risk going back to work and becoming a victim of the “no big deal, just another flu” who ends up dead as a result of trusting the authorities’ reassurances.
The tragic irony is that Chinese authorities hid the epidemic to save political face, but their increasingly transparent lies and desperation are destroying what little international credibility remained after their attempt to save political face blew up. Rather than saving face, they’ve lost the last shreds of credibility they still possessed.
As for the Chinese people: how does it feel to know that the political optics matter so much more than your health and well-being?
Quarantining 400 million people in China still leaves a reservoir of 1 billion people in hundreds of small cities and towns and thousands of villages who may catch the virus from people who returned home from cities before they were locked down.
