often imitated, never duplicated. This is the one and only fash the nation. Your guiding light in a sea of generous is welcome deficit to 93 of FTN, the world's most complex dissident. Right wing political broadcasts were absolutely no proofing is allowed. If you've heard it somewhere, chances are that somewhere is here. Jazz hands feels James. Also very big Show all the prep tossed into the wind based on the events of the last 72 hours. Yeah, that's about right, like, uh, cooped away into the sands of time. But don't worry. We'll be doing the political prep and the election news and updates. All of that is coming this week on a very special edition of FDA. Yeah, we're gonna be doing strike the nation on Wednesday night. It is going to be a show where you cannot call into and get hung up on. Unlike jazz and Jesse, we're gonna be It's gonna be me and James and ah, our very own Eric Striker doing doing some reaction to Super Tuesday, which is on Tuesday, March 3rd s. We're going to be doing that. It's been ah, crazy. How much things have changed in the last 48 hours. The midweek show, originally after we did that was to talk about born E J and versus Stutter and Joe and a few snorkel dive topics. And I, in fact, plan to do this whole juxtaposition of, ah, the justice system and how it has to tears and jute ear and the other tier of a sand. And Weinstein is parallel stories of injustice. Um, and James had something teed up that he was going to the second half? Um, I don't know. Are we still doing that in the second half? I don't even know, Are we? No, I don't think we have time now. I think we're gonna be I think we're gonna be taken off. Are too busy taking off our W NTSB inspector hats and putting on our ice A pod suits getting to the bottom of some diagnoses. Yes. So I mean, nothing murderous now, officially on suicide watch at this point, I mean, you know, we've done a few Corona Chan episodes and ah, this is I mean, we we kind of hedged on each one and was like, You know it. It looks like this could be something different. It looks like this is something that is going to be potentially catastrophic, though I would say that it's not going to result in this, like worldwide deaths of hundreds of millions of people. Of course, you have to sort of suspend the always nothing. Nothing. Always. It is 100% of this 0% of that on off, off on binary thinking that Ah, lot of people just fall into because I think it's lazy. I think it's lazy to do that. And and in any case, I mean, we're seeing this sort of evolve, and it's evolving into more than just a pandemic. Um, it is evolving into potentially a economic recession, maybe an economic crisis. We're going to get into all of that in the show as well. Aziz, skewering the cold, takes the very cold meditate, aches in putting in some of our own very hot meditates on where this is going and what it's going to look like. Of course, we don't know, really, but what we do know is that we do have the very first death in the United States of guy in King County, Washington. Knowing James is one of these unknown ones. That's right. Just Yeah, yeah, It's a case of unknown origin as they're describing it. He had not traveled outside of the country. He had no known contact with people who have the disease who are known to have the disease. Of course, determining whether or not someone is a carrier of this is very difficult as well Get into ah throughout the episode here, telling you why that is the lack of testing kids, etcetera. But yeah, we have the first U S. Death coming early Saturday morning, 50 year old man who apparently had some underlying health conditions as being reported in King County, Washington. We have just in the last few hours the U. S. Issuing new travel advisories, or South Korea and Italy now on par with Afghanistan. On the Level four travel advisories do not travel. People who have visited Iran in the last 14 days are and from entry into the U. S. These are foreign nationals from anywhere, not just Iranians. There's a new US epicenter being investigated. A long term care facility in Kirkland, Washington being looked at is an epicenter of Corona virus. Now that is in King County, but it's not related to the first U S death there of that 50 year old man. And one of the cases at this potential epicenter is a health care worker in her forties. And this is one of the dangers that we talked about with this first broke. Actually, we we had, uh you've been been looking carefully to see if this would be happening if if U. S health care workers would be getting infected like they have been in China. And now we have confirmation that is, in fact happening, which realize the point that US precautions, even in the medical field, are not enough to prevent transmission of this disease on the the other woman infected is in her seventies. Now we also have international crackdowns coming as of press time, with new border controls being imposed in Germany. And the latest up that we have is 87,000 worldwide confirmed cases and it 3000 worldwide deaths. And that number expected to rise in the coming days in And I've seen some I'm just gonna call out thes takes cause they're just awful. And I see some takes where you know, grog tries to apply, like randomized drug timeframe and randomized drug interpretations of numbers. And it's like, Well, it's only this and so this isn't a big deal. It's like it actually is quite a big deal because of the rate of infection and how it's how it's, uh, moving and how quickly it's moving. And so, yeah, I mean, the idea that that it's either nothing or it's going to result in the total destruction of all of civilization is kind of silly. I mean, we're already seeing a reaction to this that is unlike what we've seen with H one n one with SARS with Ebola, and it's really not so much, I mean the disease. It's so you have to sort of like, think you have to be able to think it got into new. It's and be able to think about this from the standpoint of all these systems and everything and how they're all interacting with each other, right? And so you not. You don't just have the fact that people are getting sick from a virus that they don't really fully understand and for which the protocols and procedures that have been put in place aren't really working. You also have that tied in with a global financial selloff, which is taking place this week in a very exacerbated way as well as what we talked about in the mid week show where you now have when you measure daily cases, the number of daily cases outside of China has now surpassed the number of daily cases inside of China and that main that is also a big deal from the sense that we don't know whether China has just simply stopped reporting outnumbers either. Because if you look at this graph of China and their daily reporting of numbers, which we're gonna get into here shortly, it seems to have just like falling off. It's like, Wow, so they must have cured the disease, James. I mean, somehow, like they all of a sudden, it's like 4000 new cases a day, and then it's just like, you know, plummets to the earth like the Dow Jones Industrial Average did this week, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Did it really just stop? It's like, Well, what happened? Did did did they just are the quarantines working? Do we? No. No, we don't know, because all of the news coming out of China has basically been turned off too, right about the time that the numbers stopped being reported out at ever increasing levels, you, in their economy was part of the news that was coming out, which was that it was crashing, Um, in the PM eyes and everything else. It's like, Why aren't we hearing anything out of China at all? It's radio silence. Well, because they put measures in place to prevent zero information from getting out just a trickle. Yeah, we got this under control, guys. And who's gonna challenge it? Writer. Sure, it's very easy to stop having new cases when you simply aren't testing for new cases and you aren't you aren't offering medical treatment to people as we're seeing be reported anecdotally by many in China who are, and you can see the videos and pictures of this online of the quarantine methods very. Shall we say, fourth century quarantine methods that are that are being employed in certain parts of China. In certain districts where you know, there's videos of people going to their door and their doors was welded shut and they're not getting updates from health officials and you're seeing the health officials park their car and get out with a ar fifteens of handguns. And that's what you're saying. So, yeah, any news we're getting out of China right now is very suspect. And the other problem with reporting, as we've discussed previously is is the lack of testing available in the U. S. I mean, as we see 800 new cases, 900 new cases a day being reported out of Italy, a country with a population what, 1\/30 1 10th the size of the US population. Meanwhile, we're getting five or six new cases today in the U. S. Doesn't seem to pass the common sense smell test to me, it it doesn't. We're going to get into all that here shortly. But going back to this, uh, cancellation of events, something that is altogether different from what we have seen with H one n one and SARS and Ah, Ebola is that you have these major events being canceled all over the world, and it's like we're being told. Oh, it's just like the flu guys, you know, interesting. Very similar to other things. We've seen no need to panic. But then you have the mobile world Congress cancelled in Barcelona. That was the big one that we talked about. Ah, a couple episodes ago. But then you have Facebook. Global Marketing Summit in San Francisco canceled Facebook fate f ate in San Jose, California Canceled M Tech Asia in Singapore Canceled Google News Initiative Global Summit, Sunnyvale, California. Canceled Shopify Developers conference in Toronto. Canceled Saudi Arabia suspends entry for pilgrimage in Mecca over Corona virus fears The 2020 Geneva Motor Show is now cancelled in Switzerland based on the fact that the Swiss government has banned gatherings of 1000 people or more on Friday due to concerns over Corona virus. The Batman is ineffective immediately and runs at least until March 15th. Also on Thursday, Microsoft and Epic Games pulled out of one of the industry's major conferences Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, which is coming up in a couple weeks. You have ah, cycling Sorry, Alex, but the U A e tours cancellation also in Italy, a lot of other events in doubt tennis. You have ah bunch of tennis matches have been canceled, including one in Bergamo, Italy, which is outside of Milan. Um, bad mitten. Formula One. Ah, there was supposed to be a Formula One race. A swell in China, of course, but also in Australia by rain in Vietnam. Um, they've they Ferrari has restricted access to their factory in Maranello, Um, 87 miles from the Italian outbreak in Kota Codogno. I guess I've never even heard of that name. But then you have Tokyo Olympics, which is still on as of now, but there there's starting to talk about whether or not that is just going to be cancelled altogether. There was talk about maybe postponement or relocation, but relocation aware like I just listed off all of these places outside of China. A lot of them in the United States, a lot of them around where cases are starting to show up as unknown. They don't know where these cases in California are coming from. Um, we know where they're coming from. It's thing. There's nothing unknown about that. But we're gonna talk about that in a bit. Tokyo. It's where they're gonna move it to write like you have. Major companies are canceling conferences and travel plans within the United States now which is having cascading impacts on hotels, airlines convention centers. And so these wide scale cancellations, along with closed factories and disrupted supply chain, is leading to a cascading effect which essentially is kicking off. What may well be a global recession on people are like, Whoa, bro, like, that's a little bit little bit extreme, like, aren't things just gonna continue to go on forever, James? And the way that they are like things were never going to change and things were always going to be the same, right? Well, first of all, no. And and we have, ah lot of data to support this. We're looking at the supply chain, which we'll talk about here in a bit. I saw today that Amazon has actually canceled all employees traveled within the U. S. And have encouraged employees to postpone domestic vacations within the U. S. Obviously international travel. They're being encouraged not to take part in that as well. The International Tourism Bureau in Germany They were planning on having a conference this coming month that has been cancelled in Japan. They have canceled public gatherings as well, much like the have in in Switzerland, and they have now announced that baseball teams and baseball games can go on as planned, however, with no audience in attendance. So every baseball game is going to look like if you remember that Orioles game from during the Baltimore riots a few years back, where it's that nobody in the stands, nobody in the stands but yeah, playing to an empty audience. So things are getting. Yeah, things are getting Ah, you know, it's not just China feeling. It's not just Asian countries feeling the effects of this anymore in terms of, ah, public events being canceled. It's happening across in a week ago, I would have told you Jazz, maybe we could do the Olympics in sub Saharan Africa because, hey, no cases there. But unfortunately, that's a no hunk of the case with Nigeria getting their first few cases this week. Well, for fortunately, that's the case, because yes, so in we're seeing that actually spread all over the world like nothing is off limits at this point and in the travel that is being cancelled, of course, is in places that have. I mean, it's like domestic travel within the United States, Air saying cancel domestic vacations and people aren't going to travel in. This is in an economy that was already fragile, right? I mean, this is this is in an economy that had a lot of problems to begin with. Stock market hitting all time highs. But of course, we know really what? Just having a stock market at all time highs means, um, but you had huge debts. Inequality, highest in the in in 80 years. Staggering credit card debts, student loan debt, medical debt, car loan defaults at an all time high, more homelessness than anyone's ever seen in decades, meanwhile, pumping 75 to $80 billion in liquidity into the markets every day to keep them afloat. I mean, this was not, you know, as Obama would say, This is not an economy that was built toe last. Um, this was something that is ah, you know, starting to fall apart. Um, Dow Jones shaved 3500 points or 11.5% in the last week. So just to put that into perspective relative to the financial crisis of 2008 we're halfway to the bottom in relative terms. So also in relative terms, were exactly on par with the dot com bubble pop in 2000 I realized most of you may not have been alive back then, but that it was a view. If you go look at graphs of the week over week over change Ah, in the S and P 500 the Dow Jones Industrial average Corona virus, the bottom is halfway to the financial crisis on par with the dot com bubble. And ah, yeah, it is not good. This is well, not good in the sense that this it's like I don't do I care if you know the wealthy plutocrats and the economy lost $1.7 trillion in the last 15 days, 16 days? No, not really. But these things have what they call downstream effects and the downstream effects. And there are people probably nodding their heads. I guess Please bring more downstream effects, and it's like, yeah, we're probably headed there. I mean, I don't see how the virus itself doesn't just go away overnight. Um, it doesn't just the problem doesn't just get solved, right, Like so when when usually have an economic downturn, there are changes in their things that can be done to stave off maybe some of the sell off or whatever. But as we're gonna find out here as we sort of unfold this, you're going to see that they don't have tools. They not only don't have tools to fix the problem, they're in a catch 22 they the virus itself, they know literally nothing about it. And it continues to expand and keep moving into places that they thought that it wouldn't. Um yeah, Run. Oh, sure. And also due to the nature of the U. S. Supply chain globalised supply chain. Really the effects even after we if we reach a point when we reach a point where this virus comes under control or we start to see a decline in cases and it's no longer a public health crisis no longer pandemic because of the way the supply chain is structured and the delays that are built in from production of goods and raw materials in China. Two delivery final Different delivery in the U. S. You're looking at at least a two months, two months, lead time on that. And so the economic effects will continue. Ah, ive even after we you know alleviate the pandemic status. Well, in on top of that, I mean, it's it's sort of like these air. This is something that was very delicate, very fragile. And it required that it remained in motion. Right? Like, this is why you have Chairman Powell pumping $75 billion in liquidity into the markets every day. It's to keep it to keep it alive for as long as possible. This was Ah, this is, you know, they stave off what would have been otherwise like natural cycles. Right. This is this is the artificial nature of what? What I guess you want could call capitalism today. This is This is plutocratic capitalism. This is highly financial ized debt finance, capitalism. I'm not saying that there is some good form of capitalism, but I am saying that the form of capitalism that would be, ah, sort of playing out without a lot of intervention would have far more ups and downs. You'd have a lot more. Ah, you know, things that really didn't couldn't survive, um, dying out in moving along and said they're being kept alive and kept afloat. And when you stay these sort of things off, it's only a matter of time before they come tumbling down. It's about damage control. It's about having it happen at the right time to benefit the right people. And that's sort of how this goes. And so the Dow, down seven days in a row, longest losing streak since ah, worst month, actually, since February of 2009 worst week since Lehman Brothers in 2008. The volume of trading, which means people hitting the panic button hit an all time record high on Friday of the magus stocks. We talked about this before. This is Ah, what is this Google Amazon? Um, I forget off the Yeah, that's right. Yep, they lost $780 billion in market cap in the last seven days. World stocks lost $5 trillion in market cap in seven days. The S and P 500 suffered its fastest crash from peak to correction ever. US stocks saw their worst week since Lehman Brothers. As I said before, um, the vics, which is a volatility index, exploded 30 points higher in February, its biggest monthly spike in volatility ever. This is an index that they created to measure Ah, real time panic in risk that that may be present in the market. It's usually the canary in the coal mine biggest six day collapse in bank stocks. There's a white pill James biggest six day collapse in bank stocks since the peak of the financial crisis. It's a white pill only into you realize that this is a controlled demolition. Airline stocks suffered their biggest weekly drop since March of 2009. Two year yields on bonds biggest drop since November 2000 and eight. And the Dow has wiped out almost all of last year's 22% gain. Powers Pumping Plan Failed This is Chairman Powell, 4 30 Eastern time on Friday. The fundamentals of the U. S economy remains strong. However. The Corona virus pose is evolving risks to economic activity. The Federal Reserve is closely monitoring developments in their implications for the economic outlook. We would use our tools to act is appropriate to support the economy. Um, and of course I read. That seems kind of boring, But the reaction to it from this guy over at CNBC is pretty funny. Chairman Palette. What level of interest rates will I be willing to go to a rock concert and risk infection. And so that underlies the point, right? Like, this is the major problem. Like, this isn't This isn't something that can be fixed with low interest rates. This isn't something that can be fixed with liquidity. This is something that, ah, fundamental aspects of the economy manufacturing, supply chain, global trade, Which is not the way I would have set up the U. S. Economy. But it's the way the American Empire has been sit up really in in a very rapid pace. But prior to World War Two But after World War Two as well. And the whole structure is like, ah, house of cards. I mean, we're all I know. It's sort of ah, sort of a trite cliche, but But that's really really what it is. I mean, we're gonna we're gonna explain how all that works, because I think a lot of people aren't aware. Um, but yeah, I mean what? There's nothing there out of tools to solve this crisis, aren't they? That's exactly right. A short of solving the is holding for the virus and containing it and developing a way for people to get vaccinated or treated or or bring this under wrapped. Short of that, there's nothing they can do because pandemic effects consumer behavior differently and thus effects economic activity differently. Then something that's Mawr academic or something that's more removed from people's immediate concerns. Some type of economic happening, right? Like like if commodities futures fall, that's not something people the average person is feeling day to day. But if people are afraid of getting infected, if people are afraid of contracting a disease that very little is known about, then they're going to modify their behavior. And that means more often than not, spending less money. I think his point. Steve Lee's Hman Steve Lies Man makes a good point. People are gonna go to rock concerts. They're not gonna go to sports games. They're not going to go to public events. And there are also going to refrain from shopping in public places. And this is going to be very deleterious for retail. So, yeah, I mean, this is something that doesn't just affect a few traders or institutional investors. This affects the vast majority of American consumers, and it may also have a deal. It eeriest effect on immigration because Why would someone want to go to a country where they're likely to get infected? Now? We could argue about the possibility that you could have a surge of of non whites from Third World countries that have zero access to decent medical care for really reasons of their own making, of course, um, trying to flood into countries that have great medical systems. But even in First World countries, those medical systems have gotten overly complex, and they're not able to deal with the problem that they have. Whether that is by by virtue of the complexity or by virtue of the fact that this is not a problem, that they really readily want to solve that one, they want sort of the disease, so to speak, the pandemic to run its course. And they're willing to deal with the economic fallout. In fact, you could even say that the economic fallout is part of what they want to do, like that is part of the restructuring. This is a restructuring that's taking taking place, and you have a lot of people faced with what would be considered an impossible trade off, right? This is the $34 trillion impossible. Be order Tradeoff that that Donald Trump is faced with. If you look at this this way so you have Bank of America rates strategist Ralph Prus er explains why for Trump, the U. S. Stocks may only get worse before it even gets even more worse. Ah, which has got the money. That reason is that markets now seem to be taking the view that authorities i e. Trump face the following impossible trade off. On one hand, they can adopt draconian quarantine measures seen in China and trigger a further global recession is worldwide economic activity grinds to a halt, or they can risk a pandemic by failing to take more aggressive action on the virus, which will also result in global recession, which is what we saw play out this week. It's a very neat way to wrap up everything that you saw this week, and it's something that China attempted at first to. They tried first, only just watching its economy grind to a halt, and then they flipped in pursuit of the second option while covering up the full extent of the ongoing virus within the borders in hopes of rebooting the economy that's what they're doing right now. So when you saw China all of a sudden say, Oh, wow, we actually have a lot more cases than we thought in the deaf, skyrocketing and things getting really bad They thought that by applying these draconian measures and telling everybody what they were doing, that they could essentially stave this off. But they realized by not Dubai by going hardcore like that, they, ah and then telling the world everything that was going on. It just lead to more problems. And so this explains the total silence so similar to China. The Trump administration realizes the Catch 22 nature of the dilemma they're facing, and they're hoping to delay making a decision for us long as possible. This is what we saw in January and February when they should have been taking very draconian measures when we were saying, Why are they doing something about this? That was pretty much the thought crossing everybody's mind, Um, you know, because they don't want to cause the US to go into recession. And Donald Trump is looking at his November 2020 election, which is looming, and ah, this sort of recessionary outcome could devastate his odds for re election, especially when he staked so much on the Dow Jones in your 40 in case and your investments feeling better than ever? Well, when they're not, what else can people look? Teoh, What else can you hang your hat on? Ah, and you're in stake, Your electoral prospects on not very much. And it is exactly right. This is what we were saying at the time. We've been saying this since mid January. Not Teoh not to, you know, pattern backs too hard. But this is what what we're saying from the start is the way you control for this. And look, it's very difficult to control for something like this when you have a fully integrated, globalized economy. But what you have to do to prevent the spread of a pandemic is take so called draconian measures and not allow flights in from China, which they're still doing, not allowed travel from from Chinese nationals, which they're still doing, right. So So they've gone through an imposed, very halfhearted measures to bring this under control. And we can see from the way from the timing of Trump's announcements Ah, and from the timing of federal action on Corona virus that this was timed thes actions were timed around the markets to stave off market crashes. We noted this on last midweek show when Trump and parents came out and did their first there first press conference on the issue that took place suspiciously just in our after trading closed right. This was done for a reason. There's a reason they didn't do this at noon in the White House garden, and then the next two days were also highly problematic. The reaction to the sort of guys this is just like the flu. Um, was not good and not in the reaction with what's definitely not very good. And of course, there will come a time where, even if Trump picked one of the above approaches, whether it's the first or the second, it isn't going to matter. And I would say we're at that point, like were already there. And so you know, um, you also have the media with this $34 trillion trade off as well, right? They have been fighting over how to frame this. And so one of the ice cold takes has been that This is a nothing burger and the media is just hyping this stuff to screw Trump out of the election. Nothing to see here. My God, 2020 is essentially like one of the spiciest cold takes on this. And so Ah, that's not exact that that's not at all what's going on. Not exactly what's going on. Not at all. What's going on? The media is actually arguing about what to do here again. This is mornin. It's so a little bird told me. Um, possibly even a solid brass German eagle told me that early in the week Ah, there have been arguments in newsrooms, um, about whether or not to use the words outbreak or pandemic in the Chiron and articles on, you know, just in in the discourse on cable television. Ah, because the big nose Berg's upstairs wanted to preserve their holdings, likely until they could adjust their positions and thus protect fellow tribesmen. Well, they adjusted their race. That's yeah, yeah, and a good example of this, actually a very succinct example is The Washington Post, because earlier in the week you have Washington Post publishing an article by someone I believe named Steve Goldman. Uh, who and the title of the article was I have Corona virus and really, it's not that bad. And he talked about how he was on the number two Diamond Princess Cruise ship, and he is now being treated for Corona virus. And guys, it's really it's nothing. Nothing compared to bronchitis. It's really not that bad. And then the news comes down the next day. Jeff Bezos has sold somewhere about $4 billion worth of Amazon holdings like, Wow, this is Yeah, you know, I'm sure the editorial line is not at all being influenced by the by the financial priorities of ownership. Well, because they want they on one hand, they want to continue getting rich and Trump's economy right. This is one of the more novel reasons why you've seen so much of the opposition to trump fall away. It's not the only reason it's one of the more novel reasons. Usually, there is a buffet of reasons why things were happening. There's usually not one reason things air happening so gonna out of the, uh, the the absolutist thinking on this stuff. So these people are getting fucked, right? Like they're getting fucked in some ways, but on another hand, like their bank accounts are growing like That's an immutable fact. And so that has in some ways softened them to Trump's ouster. In addition to the obvious reasons that he's capitulated on a number of things, continuing to get rich on the economy means suppression of some of the stories right. On the other hand, where special prosecutors and juku impeachments have failed, crashing the economy is one thing that they can do to make Trump a one term president, right? They haven't been able to pull this off. So in that is, if you subscribe to this notion that they are actually trying to get him out. And it's not a dog and pony show with with a lot of these things, and it's always somewhat of a mix of both. There are people who are actively trying to get Donald Trump out there actively, people using ah, Bob Mueller and the Juku impeachment as sort of a show to to push for his reelection. It's it's never all of one or all of the other. It's usually a mix of both, and you're also seeing not just you're seeing sort of the jig, Nat. Good optics Jew stuff. Sort of going into this is Well, so it's got to the point now where the media can't avoid talking about this, um, anymore. They were trying to, but at the same time, you need to understand that they were trying to hold back what was going to be a flood of new information, Um, and resulting in a sell off. Now, of course. You told me, James, that Ah, the people that are selling off the result of a lot of the volume are individual investors. Whereas the people who are holding on to to their holdings our institutions. Right. So what do you think that means? Yeah, Well, exactly. And that was that was the news as a Friday is that the vast majority of sell off has come from individual investors and people who are, you know, liquidating their retirement accounts, liquidating their personal stock holdings, liquidating their mutual funds. And it has not been from the larger institutional investors which indicates to me And this, of course, this may change as of ah, as you know, in after hours trading as the market opens, reopens on Monday and moving the next week. But what this tells me for now is that this is being viewed by these institutional firms as an opportunity to increase their holdings and to buy this dip. And boy is Yeah, yeah, this certainly is. Ah, quite the quite a heck of a dip they're seeing. This is an opportunity to buy this dip and increase their share as they move forward, which the end result. I mean, if we play this out by a year or even six months is they will be more powerful. They will have a larger share of control in these companies. And the already what is it like? 50% of Americans that have no involvement with the stock market is only growing bigger, and more Americans are going to be disempowered and left out of the stock market with with no investment holdings. So while Trump is trying to figure out what he's going to do, and while the the administration is trying to understand whether they pull the trigger on this objective, or don't talk about this or gag that person and the media is deciding, who are we helping here? We helping ourselves? Are we helping Trump or we we trying Teoh crash this thing with with no survivors. Like, what are we trying to do here? Um, because there's a graph out there a swell showing the percentage of 15 2nd time slots with a a mention of the virus. And you can you can look this up. It's ah, who did this? TV news archive. Um, did this. And so you can look this up and you can see how the different networks have have played this game of either mentioning things or not mentioning things. And what you see in the last week is that, ah, the number. The percentage of 15 2nd time slots with a mention of the virus went from an average of fit 5% up to 25% with CNBC, of course, the financial network going up to 45.6%. Eso uh, and that is more of a reaction to what is happening with the market. So yeah, this is pretty bad. There was there was an ice cold take a swell that the market panic was over. Bernie, Of course, this is conservatives pushing this thistles. Also, Democrats primarily establishment Democrats, saying of this really isn't the virus, James. This is just the fact that Bernie had happen to go sky high on the predicted markets. And then all of a sudden, the economy crashed with what do you think this is all about? We can't have Bernie Sanders in his socialism. Yeah, I heard a little bit of this on on the fox news that I was listening to on the radio and Ah, yeah, this was this was something that was banded about a little bit. And the other thing that I've noticed two is not only the number of times lots discussing Corona virus, but also the tone that this went from being referred to as the Corona virus scare or or something like, you know, talking about it in very detached terms to being the pandemic, divvying the epidemic to being something that is very riel. And that is very, ah, scary in the US And so, yeah, you could you could look at the tone how this is being talked about. And, you know, of course, for a long time you had conservative media and ah, not only conservative media, but the kosher rap, as we're now calling it kosher rap media taking essentially the same the same narrative on this, which is that there's really not much to see here because even if it does come to the U. S, it's not going. It's not like it's going to be deadly right. It only has a 0.1% kill rate. Eso nothing to worry about. Of course, this is This is now changing. The tenor is becoming a little bit more high strung in the past week. Unfortunately, I think that a lot of the cold takes air coming from just a reflection of what people see on television. It's like, you know, people just repeating and regurgitating the things that they see on TV and they're not doing applying any critical analysis. And so during the weeks when you had the media calling it a scare and not a big deal and trying to run interference essentially for Trump because the Trump administration was trying to say, Oh yeah, it's just the flu and this is not a big deal and nothing to see here. And it's only in China and yada, yada, yada people were just reacting and repeating and projecting what they saw on television. And now that the markets are crashing, people are running to the other side of the equation, which is that Oh, yeah, it's going to result in total civilisational collapse with, you know, 1\/3 to 1\/2 of the population of the planet dying. Um, and it's just like, yeah, that's not that's not, you know, it's better to have the right take all along. Then it is toe have just, you know, I don't know need jerk. Ah, whiplash reactions based on what Jewish media is telling you. Yeah, it's really difficult to be a pendulum brain or a light switch brain. When something like this is going on, it's It's either theater or is there is nothing in the middle. The yeah, um, well or worse is doing it worse is doing it. It's a cope, though, like these. A lot of these air copes. It's it's like reaction to the media and then copes when what went you're supposed to be doing is is taking what you know about the motives of the media and what they think and what they're trying to do and what they're trying to say in taking it all together. Now we have the time to do this every week, cause this is our fucking job. But you do the analysis and read between the lines and and if you do it that way, most of the time you're right. Most of the time it's new. It's if you're doing new, it's you're probably on the right track. If you're like just adopting something somebody said or repeating something or saying something because you think that it is going to result in some I don't know, magic solution for you. It's not. It's probably not gonna work out. Well, in the worst is pendulum brain on behalf of red or blue team like we got from Russian about this week. Yeah, this is bad. Um, so Rush Limbaugh, you know, this is a guy who has what, 12 million listeners. He is saying, um, that the CDC, the demon rat and the media are hyping the virus to crash stump Trump's economy. That's all that you need to see here. And why do they say this? Well, because this woman named Nancy Messan Ear, who is this woman who works for the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory diseases. Ah is the sister of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Um, and apparently she said that the Corona virus is likely to hit the United States. This angered orange bloviating retard in the there. There it is. It's like this is what she said. She said this on Tuesday that it was likely to hit the United States. And I mean, I hate to take the side of of the of the genetic relative of Rod Rosenstein because I'm definitely not trying. See, this is where the absolute retard brain kicks in. It's like away. Oh, you guys taking the thigh of Rod Rosenstein, sister. Now it's like, you know, guys, if supporting is you president wasn't bad enough, right? Right? Yeah, like we're just We're rejecting the retard Mogg, a notion that there is some deep state coup under way to destroy Trump by simply pointing out the obvious that this Corona virus is going to result in infections and deaths in the United States. That is somehow a deep state coup. And then, by Friday, of course, you have all these cases popping up in California, Oregon, death in Washington of from people who have never been to China that had no contact with Chinese people, Right? That's That's not to say that like, it's very easy for people to see this theory being postulated by Limbaugh and Bill Mitchell and others. And then to see Nancy Pelosi on the television, you know, stuttering her way through a statement condemning Trump for an inadequate response. And like it's like the very large four piece puzzle pieces click together like Go Look, It's It's really this is exactly what's going on like, yeah, sure, there is some partisanship being employed here. Absolutely. Democrats are using this to bash Republicans, Republicans using it to bash Democrats, etcetera. But that's not the heart of the matter, and that's not all there is to it. You'll notice that that is a key part of this analysis that we're not even talking about. Do you hear saying Democrat? Democrat said This And Republicans said that it's like, No, that's what the That's what the media is doing. We're taking this, distilling it, boiling it down and giving you what we actually believe our ah takes that that I think a really like I I don't This is what I honestly believe I would never I would never say something that I don't believe. Um, and I'm always checking myself because of how cringe I find the sort of the co posting on some of this stuff. And, ah, you know, you sort of have to evolve and it's fine. It's all right. It's OK. Um, the reality is, is that this virus is unlike the others that we've seen. It's causing a lot of, ah worldwide havoc. People are in fact, dying. It's kind of a scary thing we're going to get into. The attributes of the virus itself is, well, a swell some confirmation bias stuff that we've been saying for a couple weeks now that, um, you know, is now pretty much mainstream news things that people have been banned and kicked off of platforms for saying there are things that are now kind of widely accepted. But meanwhile you have orange faggots still saying it's just the regular old flu and guy. In his recent press conference about Corona virus, Trump complete repeatedly compared Karan advised to the flu when the two viruses air not comparable at all. Hey also downplaying and recommended more hand washing, which is really good advice, but, you know, that's not really sufficient. You know, that's something that you put on a little placard in a batch room. That's not something that you that's not like it. Just wash your hands. It's the flu. You know, you might feel a little sick and so on and so forth. And so they said that the U. S containment of the virus is close to airtight. This is what they were saying earlier in the week. Um, for the people listening to this week's and in days out from now I mean, I I hope that the the predictions don't come true, but we can see that the containment of the virus in the United States being airtight is not the K. And it's already very unfortunate out unfortunate choice of words, especially as they're now investigating the possibility this diseases, in fact airborne, not airtight. And then for Trump to say that the virus is only as deadly as a seasonal flu. Yeah, even the lowest end fatality mortality estimates are ah, 2%. Whereas the average flew the typical seasonal flu as mortality of what point? 1.2%. So, yeah, this is this is Ah, you know you're off by a factor of at least 10 on that. He's also he's also calling any criticism of his administration's response a hoax he called. He said this at the South Carolina rally on Friday night. Now he's not calling the virus a hoax. There's some people that some some it's not people, some institutions, some media outlets that are sort of passing off headlines that that sort of make it seem like he's calling the virus itself a hoax, which big if true, I mean, that would be That would certainly confirm even more bias in our narrative. But he's saying this is not a well, actually to defend Trump, of course, but ah, he's calling any criticism of his response, which has been wholly inadequate. Let's be honest. He's calling that a hoax. Any criticism of my administration and we're how we're dealing with this virus is a hoax. So ah, if I say that Donald, it's more than just a seasonal flu virus and you need to do more than wash your house shut up jazz hands. It's a hoax, right? Oh yeah, I know it's a hoax, Mike. When Mike pence comes out today and says that Americans don't need to buy masks. There's no need for you to buy any kind of respiratory protection, according to Mike Pence. Holy shit, He said that today. Yeah, that's just ah, anybody telling you to buy a mask is ah, vicious purveyor of fake news and disinformation. I did not. I did not know that that's insane. Well, then you have Mick Mulvaney. Um, sorry, Mick. We desperately need more brown immigrants. Mulvaney. This is not Ebola. It's not SARS. It's not Merce. We just sit there and watch the markets, and there's this huge panic, and it's like, Why isn't there this huge panic every year over the flu? Mulvaney Astra, Tory Klay Americans should ignore media reports about the Corona virus amid fears of the deadly disease breaking out in the U. S. Mulvaney says he also claimed the media has only been paying close attention to the virus because they think this is going to be what brings down the president. He says to a reporter, What are you going to do today to calm the markets? I'm like, really what I might do today to calm the markets is to tell people to turn off their televisions for 24 hours. Turn off the television, says Mick Mulvaney. Put your head in the sand. Right, James? Ah, but it's sort of this odd double speak because the same Mulvaney in the same interview says Corona virus is likely to cause disruptions to everyday life in the US Such a school closures and changes to public transportation. Are you going to see some school shutdown? Probably. Maybe some impacts on public transportation? Sure, but we do this. We know how. Handle this. I don't even know what that means. No, you know, how does a guy how does a guy say like, Oh, yeah, everybody's overreacting. This is just like a normal thing. Like, Come on, just turn off your televisions. This is all hype. Go on to say like, Yeah, we might have to close down schools and public transportation, but like we do, we know how to handle. This is what we do. Yeah, we do this every like the bulldozers, you know, putting like tons of gravel blocking off I five. That happens every year in response to the seasonal flu normal and ah, nothing to see, Just turn off your TV and don't pay attention to it. Just just the flu, bro. Um, so there's some reasons why you might want to not trust the numbers that are in the US and its not necessarily what you think. Um, so you don't trust China's numbers like, does anybody trust China? Summer shames you? Do you believe the numbers coming out of China? I didn't even believe the numbers coming out of China when they started skyrocketing when it was like, Oh, wow, they're actually starting to tell people a number that is sort of close to the truth. It's like when somebody is lying totally about something and you catch them lying. And then they try to tell you 20% of the truth. And it's like, bro come on like China with like when they went from a couple 100 new cases a day to 4000 new cases a day. It's like, Come on, bro, like what's really going on here and then switching back to like, a couple 100 cases a day? It's like, all right, China, like I've kind of just had enough. But the U. S. Do you really trust that their 60 cases in the U. S. And maybe not for the same reasons that you might not trust the Chinese. And let me let me, you know, clarify what I mean by that. So very few tests have actually been performed in the United States. This is a shocking information I had really dig to see this. Ah said anywhere in the media. As of February 26 which is Wednesday of last week, the CDC reported that on Lee, 466 tests had been performed in the U. S. And the criteria for being tested is so narrow as to render these statistics basically useless. This is proven to be the case with the patient in California who was finally tested after four days and found a have the virus, even though she had not been to China or knowingly in contact with anyone from China. Why wasn't she tested sooner? Well, because she didn't fit the criteria laid out by the CDC for testing, which is. Hospital administrators said they immediately request to diagnostic testing from CDC prevention, but the procedure was not carried out because the case did not qualify under the strict federal criteria. She had not traveled to China and not been in contact with anyone known to be infected. So this delay and testing was not the fault of the physicians caring for her, but because the CDC decided from 3000 miles away that the only only certain patients should be tested. And if this sounds familiar, it's because in China only certain patients were given tests while thousands of others were turned away from health care facilities without assessment. So here's the narrow criteria to get tested. Basically, if you haven't been to an affected country or been exposed to someone from an affected country, you're not going to get a test. And on top of that, the first batch of tests sent out to health departments around the country were faulty. Half of them were faulty. And we're not seeing that that has been remedied. Are we like? I haven't seen any update that new test kits have been sent out. We just keep being told that 50% failure rate on tests if you can get a test and then 14% of the people who have been tested and say they're recovered, end up getting reinfected again. So 466 people in the United States total have been tested with potentially flawed tests. Countless people have been untested simply because they don't travel to certain countries or knowingly have been in context with a China hman. Uh and Ah, yeah, that's that's our method of prevention right now, James. But look, I don't want to be accused of of of saying that this is a hoax to you. I mean the idea. So what I'm getting to here is like, do you really believe the numbers of people in the U. S. Um, not necessary. Now, some people are probably come on jazz hands like Not that the U. S. Government is lying. Certainly they could be lying about the numbers of people who actually have the disease. But what I find more plausible is that you have people who have the disease who want to be tested and can't be because they don't meet this criteria because the criteria sucks. And as a result, you have people like this Quammen out in California, wandering around her community, touching things, bumping into things, wiping her nose and shaking hands with people just infecting people. And we saw what happened with the number two Diamond Princess. He lock up 3500 people on a ship for I don't know, 14 days. You have one person gets sick. And what happens? You end up with 500 people with the virus. How many people have died on that ship? They just announced Two more died yesterday. So it's a 700 total infected now? Yeah, in this criteria they're using is obsolete, Right, Because this would have made sense. What if we were only identifying cases from people who had either been to China or had interacted with those who were infected or interacted with those that had been to China? But as we're seeing now, with these three new cases in Washington state, one of them resulting in a death people are being infected through what they're calling unknown origin. That's the case in ah, in the case from Oregon as well. So this criteria is now obsolete, and what you need is it is a way to mainstream, not mainstream, but to to widely disseminate testing materials and these 466 tests that have been administered, which by the way the amount tested in South Korea. You wanna hazard a guess? How many of untested in South Korea? 60. 65,000 have been tested. Their Wow. So yeah, I mean, the scale of responses is pretty shocking. But for 66 people and these air, these air tests have been done actually at the CDC lab. Right. So these are these My understanding is this does not include those faulty test kits because they were faulty, right? They were issued with faulty components. And no, you're right. They have not devised a work around for that yet. It's been two weeks now and again. At press time. There is no update on a new non faulty test kit that can be used at a at a local level to get a to get an immediate results. Because the way they're doing the testing now is people are being swab essentially, and it's basically like doing your 23 me where you pop the results in the UPS prepaid box. Send it off to Atlanta and you wait and you wait and wait and please and please stay home. Shop online only. And ah, yeah, it's It's really. It's really amazing. So we know so far as you have in a presidential administration who has staved off taking any sort of measures at all that would have prevented this, um, you know, not to mention, you know, like open borders and everything else notwithstanding, But all of the things that they could have done as soon as they knew that there was some sort of problem, which was really I don't know, New Year's Day is when we saw it was a really knowing a lot anywhere for sure. What? Well, the first infection, I think in China was like late December, December twenties, something like that. But it really became an issue where they couldn't get, Uh Nope. I see what's coming here. Like, we're just gonna go ahead and get way out ahead of this and try to shut this down. But instead you have staving it off to save Donald Trump's markets. Then you have them saying that. Yeah, bro, it's just like the regular flu. Nothing to see here. But also we're gonna have to shut down schools. Probably in in transportation. Uh, yeah. Then we don't really have good ways to test this. Don't ask for a test unless you Actually, I don't know had sex with the Chinese person at this point. Like not even just like being near one. Like, did you? Have you had intercourse with a Chinese person? Have you? Ah, Have you lived in China and rolled around in the streets Naked eye? Yeah. Then we probably can't give you a test. And Oh, by the way, even the test we give you is not going to be accurate. And then, Mike, pray away. The gay pence Ah has issued a gag order. Now I'm mocking Pence for Pray away the gay because ah, he's done precisely nothing to stop gays. I think it's funny that that you know, the that shit Libs, I guess. Get mad and call him. Pray away, the gay Mike Pence. But praying away the gay, It's like, Yeah, a guy like you. You pray away the gay because you know that that is probably gonna be the thing that is the least effective at at dealing with this issue. Especially when you consider all the things we talked about about the Boy Scouts on the most recent episode. So, um, Mike pence has issued a gag order. All statements from health officials must be cleared by Mike Pets before they can be made public. It was, in fact, his very first move, which was aimed at preventing the kind of contradictory statements White House officials in top government health officials have been plaguing. The administration's response. A k a. Telling the truth about this in spite of the administration's desperate attempts to, ah, you know, slow the with the flow of information and preserve the markets and keep things going for us long as possible. How long, James before they say it's in the interest of national security that everybody shuts the fuck up. We're going to get to that, Um, Dr Anthony, I don't know how to pronounce this will to say fucky fucky fucky f a u c i. Fauci Maybe, um, one of the country's leading experts on viruses. And he is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases told associates that the White House had instructed him not to say anything else without a clearance. In fact, as of Friday, he had abruptly canceled six television appearances on Sunday talk shows. This weekend Um, so this is what he said 11 minutes before the closing bell on Friday, Ah told House of representative members in a closed briefing that the United States currently does not have enough Kona Corona virus testing Resource is hope. He also said they don't have the right kind of testing. Resource is. He also told lawmakers in this closed briefing, according to a source, that the Corona virus is spreading globally and is unlikely to. This is a beer next year and many more cases should be expected in the United States, according to a source who attended a briefing on Friday. This virus has adapted extremely well to the human speech ease species, said Anthony. This one has the capability of spreading readily from human to human. Um, so not only the U. S government is restricted on who could be tested sending out faulty tests, poorly managing the diagnostic process. They're basically preventing anybody who is an actual medical expert expert from saying anything to the public. So I don't know, I'm gonna take a Anthony Fauci at his word and just assumed that because you don't see any more quotes from this guy in the media that he's saying things that they don't want the public to hear. Well, sure, especially when you have a top Mike Pence designated to lead the response, telling people advising people against taking basic precautions, like using a face mask. I mean, that's that's not something that would induce panic if you said yeah, maybe that's not a bad idea. But he actually came out and explicitly said most Americans do not need to do that and Trump himself, which will get into, came out and said that you know, you don't need to disrupt your daily life at all as a result of this, it appears. And again, this is not to Teoh. Echo were reiterate lib tard sentiments and Demon rats sentiments to own the president or something like that. But it does seem, and it's what's doesn't seem It's eminently obvious that at the top there is an effort underway to to convince people that there's nothing to see here. Meanwhile, the medical experts and those with experience in the you know, epidemiology they are advising the exact opposite. Well, this is what we said before. It's like how many Americans are going to have to die for them to do something serious about changing the way that they handle this disease, right? I mean, will the market have to completely the bottom fall completely out of the market before? I mean, do they really think that they can control the flow of information? Do they really think that Ah, by not allowing much testing to take place, that is going to result in fewer official cases. I mean, I think that's part of the thinking. Is it like, Well, if we just don't test people, then there can't be official cases. But you're gonna end up people with people going to the ER with infections and then needing to have tests. I mean, if you have a problem, Um, you know, if you end up in a situation where you need to go, the er I would just say that I had just been to China or I live next to a Chinese person and get a fucking test. I mean, for real, like if that's gonna be there, criteria which is right now hasn't changed, Of course, more tellingly, and this confirms our biases from several weeks ago. You have Mike Pence putting Ah, H I V. Pro in charge of the Corona virus response. Pence added another layer to the government's management of the virus response on Thursday by appointing State Department top aid official Deborah Burkes to the to join his team. Berks is a career government official who was nominated by Barack Obama in 2014 as the U. S global AIDS coordinator responsible for overseeing humanitarian aid programmes combating the AIDS epidemic. She also served as head of the global HIV AIDS division at the CDC and was a top research official at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Trump Pence has got a really talent for this. Well, yes, he does. Um, this is apparently Mike Mike Pence, uh, had an AIDS outbreak taking place in Indianapolis back in 2015 and, ah, some of this had to do with. There's some overlap here with the opioid crisis. And of course, Indianapolis's is. Though it's in the Midwest, though it's in a deep red Republican state. Indianapolis itself is a blue area. It's got crime, it's got problems, may be far less than other places in the country, but it's got homosexuals and it's got I v drug use, and it's got an opioid epidemic. And so you had the rapid spread of AIDS from homosexuality. A swell as use of this. Ah, this painkiller Opana, which they were using probably because the access to the heroin wasn't that great. But Pence didn't agree with federal experts that distributing clean needles was a good idea. Not that we advocate for for this. This is looking at this. This issue with pence back then, um is kind of it's kind of comical in the sense that this is the reaction. Like pencils. Reaction was to turn to prayer as the cases spiked. Um, this isn't, you know, instead of instead of taking a stand in, dealing with Pence was, I think, the governor of Indiana before, at one point he was also Ah, you know, Congressman, from there, instead of doing what needed to be done long, long ago, the reaction is like, Do we have needle exchanges or do we not have needle exchanges? Instead, it's the question is, Are we executing drug dealers? Are we not executing drug dealers? But that's you know that's part of the problem. It's like, Are we are we putting doctors who write prescriptions and push these drugs on people in prison for the rest of their lives? Or are we Are we just letting them slide and profiting from it as it's hollowing out the center of the country? And, of course, Mike Pence's like, Yeah, I don't wanna have you know, I don't believe effective anti drug policy involves handing out drug paraphernalia, he told the Indianapolis Star at the time. It's like, Well, what do you believe in Mike before? Aside from just like turning to prayer and so you have a you have a guy that's been put in charge of dealing with Corona virus, who who's like, go to response for dealing with problems before they get worse is and after they've already gotten extremely bad when more draconian measures are required is Yeah, I'm just gonna drop to my knees and pray here for a second. Pray away the gay and pray away Corona Chan and pray away this and pray away that, I mean, it's obvious that Pence has been brought in to be a dupe. This is what we surmised on midweek show is that this is going to get really bad and Pence is a guy that they can put in the line of fire. And, ah, he's a guy who has been taking bullets for Zaugg forever leading people down a horrific path. Um, with with conservative Republican politics and ah, you know, he has no problem being the fall guy for what is probably going to be a horrific pandemic crisis. And, um, you know, he's gotta take the bullets for Donald. Uh, and that's kind of the way that's gonna go. Yeah, Pence, of course, close with Mitt Romney, a former governor. I think there were governors at the same time, Republican governors. At the same time, Romney, whose company owned many of the methadone clinics, Probably, uh, odds are some of the clinics that are used were used to treat people recovering. We're trying to recover from opon A and other of these These painkillers. Yeah, you know, it's it's very revealing, and we talk about this phenomenon with red state senators taking staking a very Koucky positions very center writer, his centrist or even ah, you know, just neoliberal positions. Despite coming from these deep Red States pence much the same way you would have had popular support. Of course, to use the state police to use state investigative resource is to to prosecute the doctors in these opiate pill mills. But that didn't take place. Didn't happen. Instead, he just here like great I want to see I want to see black vans in front of doctors, offices and people being frog marched, um, out of their offices while people are standing, you know, slacked drought in the waiting room. I want to see documents being shoved in the back. So vans, I want to see bulldozers going through and, ah, cleaning up all the detritus in the inner city. I want the whole thing leveled. But no, Mike Pence has turned to prayer. And, you know, we we just have toe hope that this gets better, right? I have my faith in God and in Israel and everything else that Mike Pence is done. You know, if you're if you're offended by this, I mean, I'm sorry, but that's that's the reality. And the guy, your e even if you're religious and even if you're a Christian and that's fine, I don't I don't have a problem if that's what you believe in. But like look at Mike Pence and look at how this is being used to manipulate people, and that's exactly what it is. I mean, this is the same Mike Pence who in 2000 wrote an op ed on this congressional website, saying, despite the hysteria from the political class in the media, smoking cigarettes doesn't kill you. That's Mike Pence. Another question that's come up is if this is just like, totally like the flu, bro. Where are the interviews with people who have recovered from Corona virus, right? Yeah, 85% of a more recovering we're not hearing from them. No, it's not a it's not 85%. That's that's the thing right? Is if we are to believe what we're being told about the recovery rate and the fatality rate mortality rate of this disease. Well, seems to me jazz there should be hundreds of thousands ah, of people sitting around. Many of them probably flew in English that could do some, do some interviews and talk about their experience. But, ah yeah, I haven't seen any TV. And if I've seen one TV interview, then governor, well, but by and large, very few these The problem with this is that you're getting a total number of cases, right? You have 87,000 cases worldwide and 3000 deaths, or however many. There are doubts above 3000. I don't know. Um, it was like 2800. The last time I looked, it might be above 3000 now, but 87,000 cases, 3000 deaths and I don't know what 4200 recoveries. It's like, Well, where are the others? And if you look at a country country by country level, let's say a country has 1000 cases. They have 25 deaths and 32 recoveries. Like I think people are incorrectly subtracting the number of deaths and then everybody else is a recovery. Is that how that works? Like? No, they're actually tallying up the recoveries and the numbers don't make sense. It's like, Okay, so the other 95% here 95% here are just still sick. Is that what's going on? Is ah, are there? Are there like, what's going on with these people who have not recovered and have not died like are those just unknowns of those people being monitored? Whatever like what she saw on Drudge this week, with the 800 people being monitored in in New York and New Jersey like those people, like being monitored does not mean anything. It just means that somebody is like, Yeah, I'm sick and they're like, OK, let us know if it gets worse by Have a good day But that's a person who is being monitored. The doctor's office has made contact with somebody who thinks they have the disease. Um, but they don't They don't really follow up with that person. That person is not being quarantined. So a big problem, though. Maybe one of the reasons why we're not seeing any interviews with people who have recovered from Corona viruses. Uh, maybe because they keep getting reinfected. There's an alarming number of Corona virus patients in China and around the world who are testing positive after quote unquote recovering and being discharged from the hospital with the disease reappearing weeks after in some cases, so are these recoveries that were being told about James really recoveries at all. On Wednesday, you had a Japan Osaka prefectural government revealed that a female tour bus guide had tested positive for Corona virus a second time after the Chinese have discharged patients throughout the country. We're testing positive after the release from the hospital. Study by the Journal of the American Medical Association, which analyzed four infected medical personnel treated in Wuhan, found that it was likely that some recovered patients could remain carriers even after meeting discharge criteria. Wow, So so if you don't meet the criteria for testing and you do get tested somehow, then you might be testing positive and then being told, Okay, you're cool and then you come back. So in China, patients must test negative, show no symptoms and have no abnormalities on X rays before they're discharged. Ah, this professor of infectious diseases in Melbourne said it wasn't clear whether patients were reinfected or had remained persistently positive after their symptoms disappeared. He said the details of the Japan case suggests the patient had been reinfected. Ah, then you had another person saying that is. Many of 14% of discharge patients in the Wuhan province have tested positive again and had returned to hospitals for observation, but yet in China were not getting reinfection numbers. Right, Frank, we're not getting much at all Yeah, And that guy was a vice director of a local disease control center. It was some guy. I mean, this is this is one of the experts on the ground, and this E I mean, this is another alarming factor when you consider how the U. S response has been managed and the fact that we have allowed our borders to remain relatively open to the world. We know that people can be carriers and be asymptomatic for weeks before they start showing signs of infection. And now we know that people can be asymptomatic and be carrying after they have tested negative. And after they're no longer after they become asymptomatic, they're still carriers, and they're still infectious. So yeah, this is this is becoming something that, even with the testing capabilities, is becoming very difficult to condemn. A to contain, but not even contained very difficult to even measure how many people are affected or our potential carriers or or know how someone gets infected. We're gonna talk about that in the second half before we dio new cases of unknown origin like unknown. We have no idea how somebody in multicultural hellhole Northern California could be getting sick. How is somebody in the North Bay of San Francisco? How could they be coming into contact with some sort of a disease? Is it the the ah fecal matter that is all over the streets of San Francisco? Is that the used needles that air almost a carpet on any major sidewalk? Is it the fact that you have, I don't know. 5 to 10 million illegal immigrants just in the state of California. Uh, who? We don't know who they are. We don't know what they're infected with. We have diseases showing up. Um, you know, that we haven't seen in 100 years all of a sudden, and now you have the Corona virus. All of a sudden, it's like, How do you know that this is just an unknown or unknown origin they're calling. This community spread is synonymous with unknown origin. It's like, Okay, it's just like this is like, I don't know, new normal might as well just call it new Normal. It's like everybody is just in contact with one another. We don't know how it spread. It's like I know how it spread its spread because you totally tore down all of the nice strictures that we had in place to prevent these sorts of things from happening. So countries that have the illness has climbed to 60. Mexico, Belarus, Lithuania, New Zealand, Nigeria, Azerbaijan, Iceland and the Netherlands all reported their first cases on Friday, Oregon Ah also reported another one of these unknown, um, origin cases. But what this really means is that this is a person who doesn't fit within the idiotic, narrow guidelines that the CDC has set forward. So it's basically like somebody has it who hasn't been in close contact with the China man, right? Right, Yeah, and it's And again, this just is further evidence that this criteria is no longer relevant. And this disease has moved beyond something that can only be observed is a foreign threat and through foreign transmission vectors. And it's now just being circulated by people in America. And so, like, yes, while now it would be, it would still be good to close the borders to stop taking flights from China to stop taking flights from Asia generally and other infected countries, which again the U. S. Is refusing to do that would be good. But at this point, that's almost too late. That quote draconian measure. The time has come and passed for that ran. And so now we need to start looking at people who not only people who came in contact with those that were affected, but really the criteria for potential infection. Now it's worth expanding to anyone that has been in contact with the medical facility or medical personnel. Were seeing this arise out of medical facilities where they have no idea how it got there, and it's being transmitted to personnel that are in theory. I mean, these are the people that are supposed to be washing their hands, not touching their face after after seeing every patient right, And even with those precautions in place, they're still getting this infection. So yeah, these, Ah, these These standards are very outdated at this point, no longer relevant. Yeah, well, let's talk about this this woman in California before we go to break here because this this is just an illustration of just how retarded the people are behaving, and it's not just on. It's not just at the CDC level. The CDC has, ah huge role to play in this so First of all, you have to cases quote unquote of unknown origin. One of them is in Santa Clara County, which is right in the heart of Silicon Valley. And then you have Solano County, which is the North Bay of San Francisco. The first case is this woman who showed up at the emergency room and said, I have all these problems. She was admitted to the hospital on February 15th. Ah, and then she was showing symptoms before she was admitted. Ah, And then she's just that she was. They didn't want to test her at first, and then they finally did test her. Um, and the problem is, is like they don't know because of this strict criteria, they don't really know how long she had been in the community. And so California has launched this quote far reaching effort to find anyone who might have come into contact with this woman over the last several days. They're trying to fix the faulty testing process that has hamstrung their ability. Yeah, totally hamstrung. Totally by accident to track how widely the disease is spreading. Of course, Then you have Gavin Newsom saying, this is not our first great challenges it relates to public health. Quite the contrary. Thes protocols have been perfected. Oh yeah, perfect. Gaddum. Perfect Gavin, Right? So Newsom and state officials acknowledge that the Solano County woman was in the community showing symptoms of the disease before she was admitted to the hospital. This is worrisome because the virus is highly transmissible, especially when someone with the disease has its symptoms. And then there's an incubation period and how long it takes for the symptoms to show and then re infection in faulty tests and all this stuff rolled into one. The hospital quote is meticulously tracing anyone who may have come into contact with woman and monitoring scores of staff members who have been exposed. This is the hospital administrator added that staffers who had been in direct contact with the patient have been tested for the virus and are on paid leave, tracking their health at home. Yes, they're tracking their health at home, not quarantined just at home. So far, they have been no positive tests. It's like, well, that's basically meaningless and, ah, of course, this hospital administrator. To further allay concerns that people might have, she said. We strongly believe that our patients are protected, right? Yeah. Uh oh, yeah. And always that. All of that tracking that's gonna do you a lot of good. When Where was this? In California. His Solano County. Yeah. You know, that's really gonna do you a lot of good when half of your patients are illegal aliens coming in. Yeah. My name is John Bud. And, uh, you know, I need my flu shot. Please. Yeah, I could be very successful in locating those people. Yeah. Hey. Oh, can you fix my sick child faux free and emergency room, right? Yeah. The hospital. Um, of course. You know, as theon ministrations saying we strongly believe that our patients are protected. Of course. Staff at this hospital inserted a tube into the woman's lungs to help her breathe. A procedure, experts say actually increases exponentially the risk of exposure to the virus because it can aerosolize respiratory droplets. According to a person briefed on the case who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the details of the patient care. So you have an honest person telling the public like well, actually, we, uh, air rated her lungs. We inserted a tube into her lungs. And you know that can actually cause whatever is in her lungs, the center of the infection, cause this is a respiratory disease to spray all over everyone. And I'm sure everyone in the hospital is just fine. And medical workers are just fine because that's what we see, right? Thes medical workers, even with the normal precautionary measures of gloves and masks and whatever are picking up the disease like, yeah, it, that's yeah, well, And so there was. There was a bit of a controversy about this in certain certain media sources where they were showing stock footage of Ebola patients being treated. They were discussing one of these quarantines that was being his quarantine units at a hospital. Patients were being brought to this hospital and placed in the quarantine unit. It's one of the only hospitals in the country that that has this type of isolation unit is, I suppose, the more, um or more proper term. And the stock video footage they showed was from an Ebola drill conducted at this hospital, and local media actually had to clarify that no in Corona virus cases for these five patients being a located at this hospital, Actually. Well, actually, medical personnel are not treating patients in the ice, so pod as they plan to with Ebola and they're not wearing full body suits. So they're basically just getting in there, uh, putting it thrown on the nitro gloves in the little ah little face mask and swapping spit with him. And so they're not even taking advance precautions in many of these cases. Like you would with Ebola or another outbreak there just basically treat. They're treating it like the standard flu. And the danger is, of course, we know at the standard flu is transmitted, and we know next to nothing about how this is transmitted. Yeah, we don't know much about how it's transmitted it all. But rest assured James they're doing after the fact review of records and security footage. Quote to make sure that we know every person who has been in contact with the patient, determine if they are low, medium or high risk. We're doing that with grainy, you know, close circuit television camera feeds that we have in the hospital. And we did that last night and we're just about finished up with it today. Ah, and we're gonna get in touch with those people and start contacting them and letting them know that they should. Ah, you know what's what's the word? Um, he's beyond paid leave at home while they rest and relax and make sure they don't infect anybody else. Definitely don't go outside, right. Like there's no real rules in place. Of course, the Solano County woman wasn't tested for the disease for four days, despite an immediate request to the CDC because guess what, James? She didn't meet the strict criteria for the test, according to the U. C. Davis Medical Center, where she is being treated after spending four days at a community hospital in Vacaville. Staff members at the hospital questioned the woman about travel and contacts under CDC guidelines. But she did not meet the criteria for someone who should be tested for the virus because, well, you get the idea. So, yeah. Oh, isn't this this is just great? And then, of course, 90 miles away in Santa Clara County on Friday night, you have another case popping up of quote unknown origin. We have no idea. So you have to backtrack and wonder well how er How is this woman in Solano County? And how is this woman in Santa Clara County? How is the person in Washington County in Oregon and then Washington State? I mean, when we said at the beginning to show that guy in Washington State died like I didn't even know that there was an active case in Washington state. Oh, yeah, I mean, it was just like another is a dead person there. And then you have Oregon, California. What's funny is all of that happened on Friday night, and then it's been sort quiet like that. Saturday night we're recording this show. I haven't seen much at all other than the guy dying in Washington state, but it's it's like Is it a controlled release of information? Or is this Are we going to get a whole flood? I mean, one of the theories is that there's a lot of bad developments going on in the background and that your we just don't really know and that you get dribs and drabs of realities coming through. Like this person who spoke on anonymity about the persons ah, lungs, having a to put into them or like the guy from the infectious disease National Institute for Infectious Diseases, saying like, Yeah, this is going to spread really quickly and cause a whole bunch of problems like Oh, Deep State at it again. How James trying to destroy the McGaha that Trump has done for blacks and Jews and homosexuals, and they're just trying to screw up his record right in this with Don Jr is going out on television and saying, um, they're just trying to ah, they're mad at Donald Getting so hard Yeah, Mike Huckabee saying that Donald Trump could personally suck the disease out of the lungs of all 65,000 infected patients and Demas would still blame him for it. Yeah, And you know, the other problem here is that as you have people who are concerned about potentially having Corona virus who are now taking to the emergency rooms and urgent cares and and many of these facilities now being overloaded Ah, the people are sitting in these waiting rooms coughing all over each other or hours at a time, waiting for for testing, waiting to be seen by a doctor waiting to be seen by a nurse, and then told that there are no testing kits and they can't be tested for it. And so you have people who who may, in the emergency room context or urgent care context are probably coming in with underlying conditions. Either diabetes, be they cancer or some other kind of chronic respiratory disease or bronchitis coming in and being put in contact with people who may very well be carriers of the disease or afflicted themselves. But not meeting the transmit, not meeting the survey criteria. Right? So what we're creating now are are hundreds of thousands, not hundreds of thousands, thousands of epicenters, many epicenters across the country because of this of the lack of testing kits and the way the CDC and state and local, um, medical officials are going about the response to this so thousands of epicenters being created across the country as a result. And yeah, and we simply don't know the numbers. We simply can't know the members. We don't know the numbers and ah, we have a lot more coming in the second half. We're gonna be talking about some of the escalation that is going on, um, including the virus itself. Talking about the supply chain, some of the predictions for what the infections could actually look like. Some of the more moderate ones is well, and then, Ah, we have some meditate, aches, hot, cold and otherwise about where this is going and how it will be used. Because anybody who thinks that this is just a natural phenomenon that nobody is going to be taking advantage of or it is a phenomenon that was created in order to take advantage of it. Uh, you're insane if you think that there ain't nothing to see here, so we'll be right back on ftn ready for this? You're listening to the show that changed your weekend forever. Fash The nation mash the nation If you have ever purchased a car from a dealership, you know how this scam goes. You and the salesman agree on a price that you get inside to do the paperwork. And all of a sudden he's asking you to fork over 20% more than what you agreed on taxes, documentation, fees, transport fees and dozens of line items later, and you leave the lot with a few $1000 less than you expected to spend. That same markup scam is being worked on you at the grocery store to accept it doesn't happen. At the register. Tens of thousands of food and home goods manufacturers pay to have their products certified the religious intermediaries. If buying, eating and keeping kosher is important to you, then that's great. But if it's not, why pay extra for what you don't need? And why subsidise these religious intermediaries with revenue that ultimately flows to programs and institutions that probably oppose your values? Over one million products are caught up in the kosher racket, and the cost of certification is passed on to you. Unless, of course, you're consuming product that is NK see that is not kosher certified. How do you tell what isn't kosher certified? Easy answer. Go to the kosher question dot com the kosher question dot com To find easy to use convenient tools to help inform your normal Pets before they can be made public. It was, in fact, his very first move, which was aimed at preventing the kind of contradictory statements White House officials in top government health officials have been plaguing. The administration's response. A k a. Telling the truth about this in spite of the administration's desperate attempts to, ah, you know, slow the with the flow of information and preserve the markets and keep things going for us long as possible. How long, James before they say it's in the interest of national security that everybody shuts the fuck up. We're going to get to that, Um, Dr Anthony, I don't know how to pronounce this will to say fucky fucky fucky f a u c i. Fauci Maybe, um, one of the country's leading experts on viruses. And he is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases told associates that the White House had instructed him not to say anything else without a clearance. In fact, as of Friday, he had abruptly canceled six television appearances on Sunday talk shows. This weekend Um, so this is what he said 11 minutes before the closing bell on Friday, Ah told House of representative members in a closed briefing that the United States currently does not have enough Kona Corona virus testing Resource is hope. He also said they don't have the right kind of testing. Resource is. He also told lawmakers in this closed briefing, according to a source, that the Corona virus is spreading globally and is unlikely to. This is a beer next year and many more cases should be expected in the United States, according to a source who attended a briefing on Friday. This virus has adapted extremely well to the human speech ease species, said Anthony. This one has the capability of spreading readily from human to human. Um, so not only the U. S government is restricted on who could be tested sending out faulty tests, poorly managing the diagnostic process. They're basically preventing anybody who is an actual medical expert expert from saying anything to the public. So I don't know, I'm gonna take a Anthony Fauci at his word and just assumed that because you don't see any more quotes from this guy in the media that he's saying things that they don't want the public to hear. Well, sure, especially when you have a top Mike Pence designated to lead the response, telling people advising people against taking basic precautions, like using a face mask. I mean, that's that's not something that would induce panic if you said yeah, maybe that's not a bad idea. But he actually came out and explicitly said most Americans do not need to do that and Trump himself, which will get into, came out and said that you know, you don't need to disrupt your daily life at all as a result of this, it appears. And again, this is not to Teoh. Echo were reiterate lib tard sentiments and Demon rats sentiments to own the president or something like that. But it does seem, and it's what's doesn't seem It's eminently obvious that at the top there is an effort underway to to convince people that there's nothing to see here. Meanwhile, the medical experts and those with experience in the you know, epidemiology they are advising the exact opposite. Well, this is what we said before. It's like how many Americans are going to have to die for them to do something serious about changing the way that they handle this disease, right? I mean, will the market have to completely the bottom fall completely out of the market before? I mean, do they really think that they can control the flow of information? Do they really think that Ah, by not allowing much testing to take place, that is going to result in fewer official cases. I mean, I think that's part of the thinking. Is it like, Well, if we just don't test people, then there can't be official cases. But you're gonna end up people with people going to the ER with infections and then needing to have tests. I mean, if you have a problem, Um, you know, if you end up in a situation where you need to go, the er I would just say that I had just been to China or I live next to a Chinese person and get a fucking test. I mean, for real, like if that's gonna be there, criteria which is right now hasn't changed, Of course, more tellingly, and this confirms our biases from several weeks ago. You have Mike Pence putting Ah, H I V. Pro in charge of the Corona virus response. Pence added another layer to the government's management of the virus response on Thursday by appointing State Department top aid official Deborah Burkes to the to join his team. Berks is a career government official who was nominated by Barack Obama in 2014 as the U. S global AIDS coordinator responsible for overseeing humanitarian aid programmes combating the AIDS epidemic. She also served as head of the global HIV AIDS division at the CDC and was a top research official at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Trump Pence has got a really talent for this. Well, yes, he does. Um, this is apparently Mike Mike Pence, uh, had an AIDS outbreak taking place in Indianapolis back in 2015 and, ah, some of this had to do with. There's some overlap here with the opioid crisis. And of course, Indianapolis's is. Though it's in the Midwest, though it's in a deep red Republican state. Indianapolis itself is a blue area. It's got crime, it's got problems, may be far less than other places in the country, but it's got homosexuals and it's got I v drug use, and it's got an opioid epidemic. And so you had the rapid spread of AIDS from homosexuality. A swell as use of this. Ah, this painkiller Opana, which they were using probably because the access to the heroin wasn't that great. But Pence didn't agree with federal experts that distributing clean needles was a good idea. Not that we advocate for for this. This is looking at this. This issue with pence back then, um is kind of it's kind of comical in the sense that this is the reaction. Like pencils. Reaction was to turn to prayer as the cases spiked. Um, this isn't, you know, instead of instead of taking a stand in, dealing with Pence was, I think, the governor of Indiana before, at one point he was also Ah, you know, Congressman, from there, instead of doing what needed to be done long, long ago, the reaction is like, Do we have needle exchanges or do we not have needle exchanges? Instead, it's the question is, Are we executing drug dealers? Are we not executing drug dealers? But that's you know that's part of the problem. It's like, Are we are we putting doctors who write prescriptions and push these drugs on people in prison for the rest of their lives? Or are we Are we just letting them slide and profiting from it as it's hollowing out the center of the country? And, of course, Mike Pence's like, Yeah, I don't wanna have you know, I don't believe effective anti drug policy involves handing out drug paraphernalia, he told the Indianapolis Star at the time. It's like, Well, what do you believe in Mike before? Aside from just like turning to prayer and so you have a you have a guy that's been put in charge of dealing with Corona virus, who who's like, go to response for dealing with problems before they get worse is and after they've already gotten extremely bad when more draconian measures are required is Yeah, I'm just gonna drop to my knees and pray here for a second. Pray away the gay and pray away Corona Chan and pray away this and pray away that, I mean, it's obvious that Pence has been brought in to be a dupe. This is what we surmised on midweek show is that this is going to get really bad and Pence is a guy that they can put in the line of fire. And, ah, he's a guy who has been taking bullets for Zaugg forever leading people down a horrific path. Um, with with conservative Republican politics and ah, you know, he has no problem being the fall guy for what is probably going to be a horrific pandemic crisis. And, um, you know, he's gotta take the bullets for Donald. Uh, and that's kind of the way that's gonna go. Yeah, Pence, of course, close with Mitt Romney, a former governor. I think there were governors at the same time, Republican governors. At the same time, Romney, whose company owned many of the methadone clinics, Probably, uh, odds are some of the clinics that are used were used to treat people recovering. We're trying to recover from opon A and other of these These painkillers. Yeah, you know, it's it's very revealing, and we talk about this phenomenon with red state senators taking staking a very Koucky positions very center writer, his centrist or even ah, you know, just neoliberal positions. Despite coming from these deep Red States pence much the same way you would have had popular support. Of course, to use the state police to use state investigative resource is to to prosecute the doctors in these opiate pill mills. But that didn't take place. Didn't happen. Instead, he just here like great I want to see I want to see black vans in front of doctors, offices and people being frog marched, um, out of their offices while people are standing, you know, slacked drought in the waiting room. I want to see documents being shoved in the back. So vans, I want to see bulldozers going through and, ah, cleaning up all the detritus in the inner city. I want the whole thing leveled. But no, Mike Pence has turned to prayer. And, you know, we we just have toe hope that this gets better, right? I have my faith in God and in Israel and everything else that Mike Pence is done. You know, if you're if you're offended by this, I mean, I'm sorry, but that's that's the reality. And the guy, your e even if you're religious and even if you're a Christian and that's fine, I don't I don't have a problem if that's what you believe in. But like look at Mike Pence and look at how this is being used to manipulate people, and that's exactly what it is. I mean, this is the same Mike Pence who in 2000 wrote an op ed on this congressional website, saying, despite the hysteria from the political class in the media, smoking cigarettes doesn't kill you. That's Mike Pence. Another question that's come up is if this is just like, totally like the flu, bro. Where are the interviews with people who have recovered from Corona virus, right? Yeah, 85% of a more recovering we're not hearing from them. No, it's not a it's not 85%. That's that's the thing right? Is if we are to believe what we're being told about the recovery rate and the fatality rate mortality rate of this disease. Well, seems to me jazz there should be hundreds of thousands ah, of people sitting around. Many of them probably flew in English that could do some, do some interviews and talk about their experience. But, ah yeah, I haven't seen any TV. And if I've seen one TV interview, then governor, well, but by and large, very few these The problem with this is that you're getting a total number of cases, right? You have 87,000 cases worldwide and 3000 deaths, or however many. There are doubts above 3000. I don't know. Um, it was like 2800. The last time I looked, it might be above 3000 now, but 87,000 cases, 3000 deaths and I don't know what 4200 recoveries. It's like, Well, where are the others? And if you look at a country country by country level, let's say a country has 1000 cases. They have 25 deaths and 32 recoveries. Like I think people are incorrectly subtracting the number of deaths and then everybody else is a recovery. Is that how that works? Like? No, they're actually tallying up the recoveries and the numbers don't make sense. It's like, Okay, so the other 95% here 95% here are just still sick. Is that what's going on? Is ah, are there? Are there like, what's going on with these people who have not recovered and have not died like are those just unknowns of those people being monitored? Whatever like what she saw on Drudge this week, with the 800 people being monitored in in New York and New Jersey like those people, like being monitored does not mean anything. It just means that somebody is like, Yeah, I'm sick and they're like, OK, let us know if it gets worse by Have a good day But that's a person who is being monitored. The doctor's office has made contact with somebody who thinks they have the disease. Um, but they don't They don't really follow up with that person. That person is not being quarantined. So a big problem, though. Maybe one of the reasons why we're not seeing any interviews with people who have recovered from Corona viruses. Uh, maybe because they keep getting reinfected. There's an alarming number of Corona virus patients in China and around the world who are testing positive after quote unquote recovering and being discharged from the hospital with the disease reappearing weeks after in some cases, so are these recoveries that were being told about James really recoveries at all. On Wednesday, you had a Japan Osaka prefectural government revealed that a female tour bus guide had tested positive for Corona virus a second time after the Chinese have discharged patients throughout the country. We're testing positive after the release from the hospital. Study by the Journal of the American Medical Association, which analyzed four infected medical personnel treated in Wuhan, found that it was likely that some recovered patients could remain carriers even after meeting discharge criteria. Wow, So so if you don't meet the criteria for testing and you do get tested somehow, then you might be testing positive and then being told, Okay, you're cool and then you come back. So in China, patients must test negative, show no symptoms and have no abnormalities on X rays before they're discharged. Ah, this professor of infectious diseases in Melbourne said it wasn't clear whether patients were reinfected or had remained persistently positive after their symptoms disappeared. He said the details of the Japan case suggests the patient had been reinfected. Ah, then you had another person saying that is. Many of 14% of discharge patients in the Wuhan province have tested positive again and had returned to hospitals for observation, but yet in China were not getting reinfection numbers. Right, Frank, we're not getting much at all Yeah, And that guy was a vice director of a local disease control center. It was some guy. I mean, this is this is one of the experts on the ground, and this E I mean, this is another alarming factor when you consider how the U. S response has been managed and the fact that we have allowed our borders to remain relatively open to the world. We know that people can be carriers and be asymptomatic for weeks before they start showing signs of infection. And now we know that people can be asymptomatic and be carrying after they have tested negative. And after they're no longer after they become asymptomatic, they're still carriers, and they're still infectious. So yeah, this is this is becoming something that, even with the testing capabilities, is becoming very difficult to condemn. A to contain, but not even contained very difficult to even measure how many people are affected or our potential carriers or or know how someone gets infected. We're gonna talk about that in the second half before we dio new cases of unknown origin like unknown. We have no idea how somebody in multicultural hellhole Northern California could be getting sick. How is somebody in the North Bay of San Francisco? How could they be coming into contact with some sort of a disease? Is it the the ah fecal matter that is all over the streets of San Francisco? Is that the used needles that air almost a carpet on any major sidewalk? Is it the fact that you have, I don't know. 5 to 10 million illegal immigrants just in the state of California. Uh, who? We don't know who they are. We don't know what they're infected with. We have diseases showing up. Um, you know, that we haven't seen in 100 years all of a sudden, and now you have the Corona virus. All of a sudden, it's like, How do you know that this is just an unknown or unknown origin they're calling. This community spread is synonymous with unknown origin. It's like, Okay, it's just like this is like, I don't know, new normal might as well just call it new Normal. It's like everybody is just in contact with one another. We don't know how it spread. It's like I know how it spread its spread because you totally tore down all of the nice strictures that we had in place to prevent these sorts of things from happening. So countries that have the illness has climbed to 60. Mexico, Belarus, Lithuania, New Zealand, Nigeria, Azerbaijan, Iceland and the Netherlands all reported their first cases on Friday, Oregon Ah also reported another one of these unknown, um, origin cases. But what this really means is that this is a person who doesn't fit within the idiotic, narrow guidelines that the CDC has set forward. So it's basically like somebody has it who hasn't been in close contact with the China man, right? Right, Yeah, and it's And again, this just is further evidence that this criteria is no longer relevant. And this disease has moved beyond something that can only be observed is a foreign threat and through foreign transmission vectors. And it's now just being circulated by people in America. And so, like, yes, while now it would be, it would still be good to close the borders to stop taking flights from China to stop taking flights from Asia generally and other infected countries, which again the U. S. Is refusing to do that would be good. But at this point, that's almost too late. That quote draconian measure. The time has come and passed for that ran. And so now we need to start looking at people who not only people who came in contact with those that were affected, but really the criteria for potential infection. Now it's worth expanding to anyone that has been in contact with the medical facility or medical personnel. Were seeing this arise out of medical facilities where they have no idea how it got there, and it's being transmitted to personnel that are in theory. I mean, these are the people that are supposed to be washing their hands, not touching their face after after seeing every patient right, And even with those precautions in place, they're still getting this infection. So yeah, these, Ah, these These standards are very outdated at this point, no longer relevant. Yeah, well, let's talk about this this woman in California before we go to break here because this this is just an illustration of just how retarded the people are behaving, and it's not just on. It's not just at the CDC level. The CDC has, ah huge role to play in this so First of all, you have to cases quote unquote of unknown origin. One of them is in Santa Clara County, which is right in the heart of Silicon Valley. And then you have Solano County, which is the North Bay of San Francisco. The first case is this woman who showed up at the emergency room and said, I have all these problems. She was admitted to the hospital on February 15th. Ah, and then she was showing symptoms before she was admitted. Ah, And then she's just that she was. They didn't want to test her at first, and then they finally did test her. Um, and the problem is, is like they don't know because of this strict criteria, they don't really know how long she had been in the community. And so California has launched this quote far reaching effort to find anyone who might have come into contact with this woman over the last several days. They're trying to fix the faulty testing process that has hamstrung their ability. Yeah, totally hamstrung. Totally by accident to track how widely the disease is spreading. Of course, Then you have Gavin Newsom saying, this is not our first great challenges it relates to public health. Quite the contrary. Thes protocols have been perfected. Oh yeah, perfect. Gaddum. Perfect Gavin, Right? So Newsom and state officials acknowledge that the Solano County woman was in the community showing symptoms of the disease before she was admitted to the hospital. This is worrisome because the virus is highly transmissible, especially when someone with the disease has its symptoms. And then there's an incubation period and how long it takes for the symptoms to show and then re infection in faulty tests and all this stuff rolled into one. The hospital quote is meticulously tracing anyone who may have come into contact with woman and monitoring scores of staff members who have been exposed. This is the hospital administrator added that staffers who had been in direct contact with the patient have been tested for the virus and are on paid leave, tracking their health at home. Yes, they're tracking their health at home, not quarantined just at home. So far, they have been no positive tests. It's like, well, that's basically meaningless and, ah, of course, this hospital administrator. To further allay concerns that people might have, she said. We strongly believe that our patients are protected, right? Yeah. Uh oh, yeah. And always that. All of that tracking that's gonna do you a lot of good. When Where was this? In California. His Solano County. Yeah. You know, that's really gonna do you a lot of good when half of your patients are illegal aliens coming in. Yeah. My name is John Bud. And, uh, you know, I need my flu shot. Please. Yeah, I could be very successful in locating those people. Yeah. Hey. Oh, can you fix my sick child faux free and emergency room, right? Yeah. The hospital. Um, of course. You know, as theon ministrations saying we strongly believe that our patients are protected. Of course. Staff at this hospital inserted a tube into the woman's lungs to help her breathe. A procedure, experts say actually increases exponentially the risk of exposure to the virus because it can aerosolize respiratory droplets. According to a person briefed on the case who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the details of the patient care. So you have an honest person telling the public like well, actually, we, uh, air rated her lungs. We inserted a tube into her lungs. And you know that can actually cause whatever is in her lungs, the center of the infection, cause this is a respiratory disease to spray all over everyone. And I'm sure everyone in the hospital is just fine. And medical workers are just fine because that's what we see, right? Thes medical workers, even with the normal precautionary measures of gloves and masks and whatever are picking up the disease like, yeah, it, that's yeah, well, And so there was. There was a bit of a controversy about this in certain certain media sources where they were showing stock footage of Ebola patients being treated. They were discussing one of these quarantines that was being his quarantine units at a hospital. Patients were being brought to this hospital and placed in the quarantine unit. It's one of the only hospitals in the country that that has this type of isolation unit is, I suppose, the more, um or more proper term. And the stock video footage they showed was from an Ebola drill conducted at this hospital, and local media actually had to clarify that no in Corona virus cases for these five patients being a located at this hospital, Actually. Well, actually, medical personnel are not treating patients in the ice, so pod as they plan to with Ebola and they're not wearing full body suits. So they're basically just getting in there, uh, putting it thrown on the nitro gloves in the little ah little face mask and swapping spit with him. And so they're not even taking advance precautions in many of these cases. Like you would with Ebola or another outbreak there just basically treat. They're treating it like the standard flu. And the danger is, of course, we know at the standard flu is transmitted, and we know next to nothing about how this is transmitted. Yeah, we don't know much about how it's transmitted it all. But rest assured James they're doing after the fact review of records and security footage. Quote to make sure that we know every person who has been in contact with the patient, determine if they are low, medium or high risk. We're doing that with grainy, you know, close circuit television camera feeds that we have in the hospital. And we did that last night and we're just about finished up with it today. Ah, and we're gonna get in touch with those people and start contacting them and letting them know that they should. Ah, you know what's what's the word? Um, he's beyond paid leave at home while they rest and relax and make sure they don't infect anybody else. Definitely don't go outside, right. Like there's no real rules in place. Of course, the Solano County woman wasn't tested for the disease for four days, despite an immediate request to the CDC because guess what, James? She didn't meet the strict criteria for the test, according to the U. C. Davis Medical Center, where she is being treated after spending four days at a community hospital in Vacaville. Staff members at the hospital questioned the woman about travel and contacts under CDC guidelines. But she did not meet the criteria for someone who should be tested for the virus because, well, you get the idea. So, yeah. Oh, isn't this this is just great? And then, of course, 90 miles away in Santa Clara County on Friday night, you have another case popping up of quote unknown origin. We have no idea. So you have to backtrack and wonder well how er How is this woman in Solano County? And how is this woman in Santa Clara County? How is the person in Washington County in Oregon and then Washington State? I mean, when we said at the beginning to show that guy in Washington State died like I didn't even know that there was an active case in Washington state. Oh, yeah, I mean, it was just like another is a dead person there. And then you have Oregon, California. What's funny is all of that happened on Friday night, and then it's been sort quiet like that. Saturday night we're recording this show. I haven't seen much at all other than the guy dying in Washington state, but it's it's like Is it a controlled release of information? Or is this Are we going to get a whole flood? I mean, one of the theories is that there's a lot of bad developments going on in the background and that your we just don't really know and that you get dribs and drabs of realities coming through. Like this person who spoke on anonymity about the persons ah, lungs, having a to put into them or like the guy from the infectious disease National Institute for Infectious Diseases, saying like, Yeah, this is going to spread really quickly and cause a whole bunch of problems like Oh, Deep State at it again. How James trying to destroy the McGaha that Trump has done for blacks and Jews and homosexuals, and they're just trying to screw up his record right in this with Don Jr is going out on television and saying, um, they're just trying to ah, they're mad at Donald Getting so hard Yeah, Mike Huckabee saying that Donald Trump could personally suck the disease out of the lungs of all 65,000 infected patients and Demas would still blame him for it. Yeah, And you know, the other problem here is that as you have people who are concerned about potentially having Corona virus who are now taking to the emergency rooms and urgent cares and and many of these facilities now being overloaded Ah, the people are sitting in these waiting rooms coughing all over each other or hours at a time, waiting for for testing, waiting to be seen by a doctor waiting to be seen by a nurse, and then told that there are no testing kits and they can't be tested for it. And so you have people who who may, in the emergency room context or urgent care context are probably coming in with underlying conditions. Either diabetes, be they cancer or some other kind of chronic respiratory disease or bronchitis coming in and being put in contact with people who may very well be carriers of the disease or afflicted themselves. But not meeting the transmit, not meeting the survey criteria. Right? So what we're creating now are are hundreds of thousands, not hundreds of thousands, thousands of epicenters, many epicenters across the country because of this of the lack of testing kits and the way the CDC and state and local, um, medical officials are going about the response to this so thousands of epicenters being created across the country as a result. And yeah, and we simply don't know the numbers. We simply can't know the members. We don't know the numbers and ah, we have a lot more coming in the second half. We're gonna be talking about some of the escalation that is going on, um, including the virus itself. Talking about the supply chain, some of the predictions for what the infections could actually look like. Some of the more moderate ones is well, and then, Ah, we have some meditate, aches, hot, cold and otherwise about where this is going and how it will be used. Because anybody who thinks that this is just a natural phenomenon that nobody is going to be taking advantage of or it is a phenomenon that was created in order to take advantage of it. Uh, you're insane if you think that there ain't nothing to see here, so we'll be right back on ftn ready for this? You're listening to the show that changed your weekend forever. Fash The nation mash the nation If you have ever purchased a car from a dealership, you know how this scam goes. You and the salesman agree on a price that you get inside to do the paperwork. And all of a sudden he's asking you to fork over 20% more than what you agreed on taxes, documentation, fees, transport fees and dozens of line items later, and you leave the lot with a few $1000 less than you expected to spend. That same markup scam is being worked on you at the grocery store to accept it doesn't happen. At the register.

Check it out today and now back to Fashion Nation Heard Onley in the DRS Radio Network. Welcome back, Hour two here in FTN a little more digging on Corona virus and as we mentioned earlier, that we haven't seen very many interviews of so called allegedly recovered Corona virus patients and I think I have some idea why that might be because we did see one interview with two people who had been, as they say, they had been quarantined for two weeks after returning from Wuhan, China, two weeks ago. And, yeah, the interview didn't exactly go very well, did it? And I think we have We have audio of this spot they did on Fox News. Yeah, maybe this is why you're not seeing these people on television very often. This dad, just released from quarantine, wanted everyone to know he was doing just fine. But watch what happens as he and his five year old daughter appear on Fox News. It is contagious, but the death rate is pretty low since Qi and Little Annabelle spent two weeks in quarantine after returning from Wuhan, China, where his father in law died of Corona virus. Now Frank can't stop coughing, so he takes a swig from his daughter's water bottle, hands it back, and she continues to drink from it. Oh, cough probably gets that privilege. Is that in that nerves? Yeah. This is the height of irresponsibility. Do these people? Yeah. And the most alarming thing, which obviously you're not going to pick up just from listening to this is well, the guys cough is is alarming in it of itself. But when you watch this video, we've seen some again video and and some of this is anecdotal coming out of China of people experiencing seizures, loss of muscle control, spasms, etcetera. As a result of this which which comes from the brain temperature becoming too high, basically. And ah, yeah, when you're watching this video this girl The blinking like a compulsive, blinking it very odd. It's a very odd scenario and nothing says responsible. Responsible quarantining. Like taking a big old swig off the water bottle in passing it right back to her. Yeah, Yeah, I mean, nothing like good old fashioned. Ah, hot fried drug brain. Um, increased brain temperature and so on. And so far, this is the same guy, Of course, that raised $18,000 in go fund me donations after he insinuating that he was billed for his quarantine. Yeah, which wow. Which she wasn't actually build for, of course. But ah, yeah, they let it. Isn't that ensure Isn't that sort of insurance fraud? Kind of in a way. Well, it's kind of it. And it might be fraud. Definitely. Yeah, because, of course, the CDC covers the expenses of the quarantine, but they don't. They don't cover lost wages, etcetera. So this guy's been released in the U. S. Interior. By the way, This is not an interview being conducted from a base being conducted from some kind of hospital quarantine. He's free to roam free. Ah, you know out about the reason it's just him and his daughter they're doing the interview is because his wife is only a Chinese green card recipient and she was not allowed to enter the United States. So, yeah, I had the lever back home in the Wu. But, hey, the CDC can produce a working task it, but at least they're addressing the real threat, which is not Corona virus, not the overheating of pendulum brains everywhere. It's racism and stigma. And they released a statement saying Quote the risk of getting Corona virus disease 2019 is currently low in the U. S. Due in part to quick action from health. Authorities were doing the best job. However, some people are worried about the disease. Fear and anxiety can lead to social stigma towards Chinese or other Asian Americans. Stigma and discrimination can occur, and so on and so forth. Your mission as a good American jazz is to spread accurate information about how the virus spreads. No conspiracy theories allowed speak out against negative behaviors, including negative statements on social media, about groups of people or exclusion of people who go well. I was gonna say like I speak out against negative behaviors all the time and I have lots of negative statements on social media about groups of people. Um, that I just was excluded from that conversation, so I tried CDC It did. I shared accurate information. You didn't. I did. You didn't. And, uh, you know, I I'm also very cautious about sharing images that, um, you know, are in support of, ah, any particular regime that's trying to suppress this information. But I think I'm following all the laws here. Right? Is there are there any others that I might be following You never will. You need to make sure, according to the CDC, that you are sharing the need for social support for people who have returned from China or worried about friends or relatives in the affected region. So basically, what does that mean? Just what does that even mean? Share the need for social support. So go go like hang out and take out your friend who just came back from China for t share water bottles. And yeah, I let him let him cough on you as a sign of anti racism share Kleenex. It's the most anti racist thing that you could do. Blow your nose, then hand it to your friend and he can blow his nose. It's It's great. Yeah, maybe we can get people get Americans. Good Americans, in times of crisis like this will be doing what good Americans did in 2017 after the travel ban came into effect going to airports and instead of welcoming refugees with big like what refugee you were welcome here. Science welcoming Chinese. And this will be, I'm sure you'll be allowed on to the airport with open arms because the U. S is currently allowing ah, dozens of flights per day right into the US You wouldn't even know there's a pandemic going on just based on the the flight aware schedules I was checking, just just to see, you know, to confirm my biases and looking at the Beijing Airport. And sure enough, flights to L. A X Lights to Seattle Tacoma International, San Francisco International. Well, jazz, it's almost like these are the very places we talked about an hour one as being some of the some of the epicenters of these American outbreaks. And yep, training flight crews pilot. Well, yet we have no idea how any of these cases air showing up in the is is we have no idea. See, I look at this is the hedge that the administration and some of the airlines air making because they've had to publicly cancel flights. Look, we're doing everything humanly possible to make sure that this doesn't Fred, but also keep the flights going to Beijing because we don't want to disrupt international supply chains. Please keep it going because the market is crashing, the stocks are going through the ground. And, uh, yeah, like this is incredible. Like my assumption based on what I've been told is that these airlines have canceled all flights to China, But then you look at flight aware, and these flights are just going in and out of Beijing a k pecking, um, with no problem. No problem at all, right? No. Yeah. And you're being told that Oh, it's This is only these are only flights that are bringing Americans back home, right? Well, actually not the case as foreign nationals are still being allowed to return on these flights. So, um, we talked before about the idea that power now is there. Several locus is of power. The state corporations, media, etcetera and based on that. It should be no surprise that the state is delegating much of the response and much of the responsibility to contain this and to to ah determine, you know, the extent of global travel that will continue their shirking that responsibility and passing it on to the airlines. So we have several airlines either suspending or limiting service to China, including American Airlines, Air Friends, British Airlines, British Airways, a Japanese airline, Delta stanza, guitar, etcetera, all suspending or or ah modifying routes to China. Now, interestingly, all Russian airlines, with the exception of arrow flute, have stopped flying to China since January 30 1st zero flights in and out, for whatever reason, except for Aeroflot and have one airline e car that will continue to offer flights between Moscow and China. But they're taking all planes arriving from China and taking them to a special terminal in the Moscow airport where the plans we disinfected these people will be will be screened, intensively screened and so good they're going to be gassed. Yeah, yeah, spraying the disinfect, it's gonna come in through the plane. Yeah, but you know, they're taking this seriously right there. Taking this actually seriously. Meanwhile, you know, so that's how a serious country does this. Look at the response and look at the reception at airports in the US and the EU. Very few European countries have travel restrictions in place, with the exception of Love Poland, which requires anyone traveling from China, Hong Kong, Italy, Korea or Macao to fill out one of these health declarations elsewhere in Europe, though with the exception of Germany's it's open board Sign here. Yeah, it actually, Actually, though, that's what this is. It's like you read the fine print check you don't have. You're not coping. You're not sick and you're good to go. I can you We sent you a doc you signed linked to your email. Can you please check spam to make sure that it's there? OK, next pop overhit sign. Drop the initials in the pre filled form and you're good to go. And that's actually the extent of US screenings. They you know, they whack the whack the temporal thermometer around you had a couple times you Ah, if you don't return a high result, you literally signed the form and you're good to go. Right? We have you, Commissioner for health. Stella Stella CURE Key days saying the commission welcomes keeping the borders open across the U instead of Stella Stella. Stella proceeds to read wall text on what the commission plans to dio for for 4.5 hours without taking a breath, Estella imposes an umbrella policy of allowing in all foreigners into the U US know much better. CDC has a screenings, increased screenings at 20 airports, including travelers. Jazz. I mean, this is draconian jazz these measures. This is some rigor if I've ever seen it, including now travelers having their temperature taken and filling out a questionnaire. Ah, yeah. Now people say, Well, foreign nationals that have traveled to China in the last 14 days or being kept out guys is under control. Do you really want them to just close the airports and not allow people in? Well, turns out, it's not actually even that they're not even going that far. Chinese nationals are still being allowed in if they have spent or claimed to have spent because how are you going to verify this? Two weeks outside of China? So yeah, basically, you know Oh, I was in Mongolia for two weeks. All right, no problem. Rubber stamp your in and the DHS doesn't have the resource is nor the will to verify or ascertain the honesty of people's answers on their health and travel questionnaires. So, yeah, what's to stop someone from lying, hiding symptoms or just misrepresenting where they've been? Nothing. They hours, they gonna check this. So what you're really saying is that the market has crashed to a level not seen since the dot com bubble burst. And there really are no measures in place that are causing all that much economic disruption like so the economy is shitting bricks, essentially because a few events were canceled. But otherwise most people are transiting in between countries in the way that they normally wouldn't. Well, it's like things people like the people that the people that don't have any that have a very low risk of illness are taking extra precautions and staying at home. While there are still vectors for people who are high risk to travel anyway, as long as they sign a form or not their head, we're don't do anything in blink in silence and saying no, understand English. Yeah, I mean great sounds awesome. Good job centres for disease control. Send centers for disease dissemination. Sounds like that's what they should be called. Yeah, And while people are still free to move relatively free to move, goods are going to have a little bit harder time, which will be getting to here in a few moments. So, jazz, this is an escalation. Am I right? I mean, we already heard the Belarus is now infected. This is an escalation. Yeah. This is an escalation. To quote our good friend Eric Striker, the World Health Organization raised the global risk from high to very high, which is one notch below very, very high and two notches below very, very, very high. Um, you have the Iran Vice president has gotten, um, Corona virus, and it killed the ambassador to the Vatican wish. Ah, I saw. I saw that the pope has cancelled his third day of public events. Um, after getting very, very sick, I saw pictures of him out there on Ash Wednesday like, you know, kissing people and hugging people and slathering his hands all over everyone I'm like, and then you realize that Wow, there's, you know, the U. S. Has just restricted travel duty to Italy, and, ah, the ambassador to the Vatican from Iran died of this. That's like, Wow. Like who? Kind of getting kind of getting pretty? Ah, kind of getting pretty wild. Ride here. Definitely an escalation. Um, Corona virus. Speaking of things coming out of the Vatican Corona virus far more likely than stars to bond human cells due to HIV like mutation. Scientists say new Corona virus has an H i V low. Didn't we just say this like, four or five weeks? So I love this confirmation bias, Jane. Oh, yes. Lovely. We were hedging it at the time to like it was on the word of a few Indian doctors. But, hey, maybe they are a superpower in 2020 after all, cause they got this one, right? I guess so. Well, I mean, and then you have Mike Pence. Uh, pray away the gay Mike Pence. Putting a n h i v pro in charge of Ah, a lot of the corona virus response in the United States government. And then you have this confirmation HIV like mutation. That means it's ability. Now, here's some science for the people who love signs its ability to bind with human cells could be up to 1000 times. A strong is the SARS fires, according to many research by scientists in China and Europe. Scientists showed that SARS enters the human body by binding with a receptor protein called a CE to on a cell membrane. And some early studies suggested that the new Corona virus, which shares about 80% of the genetic structure of stars, might follow a similar path. But the A C E to protein does not exist in large quantities in healthy people, and this is partly helped to limit the scale of the SARS outbreak in 2002. In 2003 in which about 1000 people were affected around the world. Other highly contagious viruses, including HIV in a bully Ebola target an enzyme called Furin, which works as a protein activator in the human body. Many proteins are in active or dormant when they're produced and have to be cut at specific points to activate their various functions. When looking at the genome sequence of the new Corona virus, scientists found a section of mutated genes that did not exist in stars, but were similar to those found in HIV and Ebola. Quote. This virus may use the packing mechanisms of other viruses, such as HIV, according to the study. The mutation congenital ate a structure known as a cleavage site in the new Corona virus spike protein. The virus uses the outreach ing spike protein to hook onto the host cell, but normally this protein is inactive. The Cleveland Site Structures job is to trick the human Furin protein so it will cut and activate the spike protein and cause a direct fusion of the viral and cellular membranes compared to SARS way of entry, this binding method is 100 to 1000 times as efficient, according to the study. And according to this article that you found in the Atlantic, a vaccine isn't gonna stop the Corona virus. So when you hear Donald Trump say we're only three weeks away from having a vaccine, we have the very best experts around the world helping us. Don't panic, buy stock, go shopping. Yeah, it's actually not that simple, is it? Now, basically, you're going to get it is what you're hearing now from the media. This has been the escalation in rhetoric and and, ah, just the new reality that's being put forward by many, including epidemiologists. But this is what they're trying to say, right? That's what that guy that they silenced in the administration, said the guys who said This is going to spread rapidly from human human. There's nothing you can do to stop it. And they put a gag order. And then they canceled that guy's appearance on six Sunday shows. So yeah, wow, yeah, Harvard epidemiology Professor Mark Lip Sych is comes out and says, Quote, I think the likely outcome is that it will ultimately not be containable. Yeah, by vaccine or by containment to buy quarantine. Basically, it's not going to be contained according to this guy. According to Yeah, the White House, the director of the National Ah department at eight, a director of outbreak response and allergy response. Yeah, I mean, this is what the experts that National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases said the guy that they silence so and then more confirmation bias. We gotta have this total conspiracy theory, bro. The virus did leak from the Wuhan lab, after all, based on some, uh, conversations that have been had an emergency meeting in Beijing held last Friday, Jingping spoke about the need to contain the Corona virus and set up a system to prevent similar epidemics in the future. A national system to control biosecurity risks must be put in place to protect the people's health, she said, Because lab safety is a national security issue, Z didn't actually admit that the Corona virus, now devastating most of China, had escaped from one of the country's by a research labs. But the very next day, evidence emerged, suggesting that this is exactly what happened as the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology released a new directive entitled Instructions on Strengthening Biosecurity Management in Microbiology labs that handle advanced viruses like the novel Corona Virus. Like we're totally not worried about the Wuhan lab at all. It's It's definitely like raw chickens and bats and other things, but we're gonna have a new directive about cleaning up security in the lab because, yeah, that's like what we got to do now. So nice, just coincidental, just ah, you just using this opportunity to, ah, reevaluate all of our biotech provisions and rules regulations. This is very it's very conscientious of them. And now we're getting ready from more escalation. Oh, more escalate. Yeah, This is, um, escalation about inanimate surfaces. Yes. So this is this sort of like when I was doing some research on this last night in trying to understand this more, especially the virus, you know, because I wanted to say more than just It's got a mutation, bro. And it's got, like, HIV like mutations. So I hope I explained what we mean by that. Why it's not like stars. What? It's not like Ebola. Why, it's a lot worse, and they don't really know much about it. The other aspect of this is that similar viruses can survive up to nine days on inanimate surfaces, but the CDC has no fucking clue yet about this one. We just know that on with other viruses, like SARS and MERS in her and er, I suppose they they can survive up to nine days on things like plastic in wood and whatever else apparently like on copper and steel that usually it's it's it doesn't survive very long, but at room temperature, similar viruses can survive according to 22 different studies of similar Corona viruses, they can survive for up to nine days on inanimate surfaces at room temperature. Um, but the CDC, of course, says there's a very, very, very low risk of spread from products and packaging that airship over a period of days or weeks. Ambient temperatures. A CDC spoke swam in in an emailed statement, said the agency is still looking into how contagious this virus could be when deposited on more common everyday surfaces. Rest assured, James, they're looking into this. So what does that mean? So does that mean that your Amazon shipment that just came in from tinge in China? Ah, by airmail, um, what does that mean? You know, you got it five days after it left China, and you open it up and you rip off the plastic. And what does that mean? Take a big, big smell of your new product. Really? Ah, really. Not probably a good idea. Can you find out where things air sourced on Amazon that easy? Oh, no, that's right. You can't because they don't want you to know. Half of the stuff that you're ordering is Chinese bullshit. Um, yeah, it's not great. Is that good to know? Like imported products are now a problem separate. Now, not only are people not going out in doing their shopping, um, that they're supposed to is good patriots of America. They are maybe not ordering things online anymore as well. Maybe this is why Jeff Bezos sold what $4,000,000,005 billion worth of stocks was. You have? No. And, ah, that's exactly right. And always reasonable to, ah to take the precaution to disinfect that stuff. Especially when you open up your product package and you see that nice bilingual label in Chinese and then that like like monotype fought? Yeah, sometimes for the life. So, you know, most of the time it's, you know, lingual. If you've ever been blown up by a Chinese product that you thought was so this looks like a great product, and then you get it. All of the packaging It's in Chinese and all of the directions. Aaron, Chinese. And it's like, Oh, my God, what did I just wanted to know whether this was 1999? Um, Bill Gates, Corona virus. Maybe a once in a century pathogen. We've all been worried about Bill Gates. You really, really worried about this, right? Of course. Bill Gates. Three Gates Foundation has been exploring ways to control world population through through vaccination or through through pandemic. So, yeah, I'm sure Gates is just just, you know, shaking in his boots about the prospect of a cooling Well, he gives the more sort of, Ah, conservative estimates, Um, a political conservative estimates on Ah, you know, where the where this could end up. You know, he said, Ah, you know, other mortality rates of typical influence. Ah, um, 0.7% up to 4% depending on the quality of the health care. But, you know, you have the 1957 Asian flu pandemic that killed 1.1 million people. But even if you get a mortality rate closer to 1% 2% the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic that killed 50 million people around the world, that could be where we're headed. I mean, they're calling this a one once in a century virus, but buckle up for some wilder predictions. Um, it may seem like the sky is falling, and, ah, according to some write ups that have been done, um, you have people basically saying, Ah, what Alex has been saying. Hello? Bias confirmation coming. Um, is that in fact, this is exactly what Alex has been saying. Um, that the likely end point of this outbreak will settle down as an endemic disease. One of the suite of respiratory viruses like influence in the common cold that travel around the world year after year, with most of us regarding them is a little more than a nuisance. But the problem is that they don't know much about this one. And, ah, the idea that this is going to, um snowball is something that they're saying. The UK government memo from the National Security communications team warns, is that the current planning assumption is that 2 to 3% of symptomatic cases will result in a fatality. So that's from the UK government. 2 to 3% of symptomatic cases result in fatalities. So around half a 1,000,000 Brits, essentially mostly the elderly or people with preexisting illnesses, could be killed under the scenario is reading this morning that one of the project plans is to turn ah Hyde Park in London essentially into a morgue, Um, which is what they did during the plague as Well Ah, and so this is like they have some worst case, best case. But what they're saying is that a lot of this stuff is going to snowball. So people who are looking back in there like but, bro, the number of cases in China's falling. I, like, totally trust the numbers. And what we saw before the trend was was 500 1000 a day, 4000 day and then all of a sudden it dropped a lake 300 today it's like, Yeah, sure, what's the explanation for that? What's going on? Um, also absent from this, which I think is kind of interesting is James. What do you think happens when people suspect, I don't know, like a landmine on the side of a ship in the strait of her moves what we have, like just worldwide anti Iranian rhetoric like time for World War Three? What's interesting in conspicuously absent from all of this is where is anybody saying anything to China? Nobody's saying anything to China. Nobody's saying open up and let us help you, which is not something I advocate. Joe Biden said that a debate, but nobody officially from the government is saying anything negative about China at all. It's almost like they're sitting back and watching it happen, just kind of strange. It's like, Why isn't there into this reaction to this? But it's really not much at all. And as it snowballs more and more in the United States and outside of ah, the rest of the world, it's it's, um it's kind of interesting and, ah, people seem to be pretty unprepared for for what may be coming and they run prepared because the government isn't doing enough. And, um, you know, I think there's, Ah, people are sort of sticking their head in the sand in this, aren't they? Oh, yeah, absolutely. And it's not as if this is something that it's not like. The government is helping them to become more prepared either. As we noted earlier, some or Mike lies Mike Pence, saying the average American doesn't need to go and buy a mask. We have Trump saying that the average American shouldn't at all think even think about disrupting their daily routine or their daily life, too. In response to this, to avoid contracting this, the director of the CDC, Robert Redfield, you could just envision this guy would like trump pencil looming behind him. Robert Redfield describing the risk of contracting the virus as low. So keep shopping. Don't pay attention. Nothing to see here. And yeah, when you're seeing these reports, these internal documents from the UK cover I have the documents, Folks, when you're seeing these documents from the UK government when you're seeing the chair of public health medicine at Hong Kong University predicting 60% of the world's population getting infected eventually like this is something that you would would ah, hope your society in your nation in our case would be prepared for. You would hope that people would be prepared for the coming disruption in global supply chain disruption in shipping, disruption in food supply. But as we know, one more. One more thing. And they say this, too, is that 1% is about the fatality rate that you're seeing right now, like that's what you're seeing across the board. If you believe the Chinese numbers and everything you know associate with, maybe there are a lot more deaths than we know if, but let's say that it's the low ball estimate, let's lowball it even more and move that old decimal 11 place to the right James and say that if it's 110.1% it would still be 10 times more fatal than the 2009 H one n one influence outbreak that killed 700,000 people. So that would That would mean that, like all of a sudden global trend, is that the fatality rate moves 2.1% instead of 1% and that we're not seeing that either, because we're seeing the thing that is driving people into a panic cause they thought, Oh, maybe this is just like a bug man flu. It's like Bug man bird flu. But no, it's it's actually killing and affecting people who are not old people who are not Asian. Um and yeah, it's, ah that nobody is prepared because everybody's fucking lying, right? What a great world we live in in the 21st century, right? Yeah. And even that 1% fatality rate is dubious, because what we're seeing now, in terms of resolve cases is more like 7%. So, yeah, about seven times is high. But Americans are wholly unprepared for this, and we've discussed this in not in the context of pandemic, but in the context of economic disruption in the past about just how how unprepared Americans are for any disruption to the to their income expenditure cycle. If 78% of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, we've noted that credit card debt has reached record highs. Student loan debt has reached record highs. People are living in their people arm or, uh, I stretched than ever before and their personal finances. 60% of Americans with less than $500 in savings. Only a very small percentage of Americans are prepared for large scale global supply chain disruption. And most Americans don't even have a week's worth of non perishable food on hand. If that Dude I most Americans have 3 to 5 days worth and this as a potential, When you start looking at how much of our food supply comes from China and how much of our manufacturer of are manufactured goods come from China, you start to see some some looming ah, bad outcomes over the horizon, right? So FEMA recommends people keep a gallon of water per day per person on hand, so a family of four, then would have 56 gallons of water on hand for a for a two week blackout. Of course, next to No one has that and the Americans food supply chain would be among the most affected of all supply chains by Chinese trade disruption. The U. S consumes £4 billion of Chinese agricultural products every year, and that number is a few years old. So four plus £1,000,000,000 of Chinese produce agricultural products, fish meat every year, 90% of American vitamin C, 78% of tilapia, 70% of apple juice, 50% of cod, 43% of process mushrooms, 23% of all garlic. All coming from China, you're saying, is that we're gonna the farmer farmers in America are going to start producing more product locally because we can't trust things going on in China. Is there may be a white pill here at the end of this thing after the population of the planet drops toe like four people. So it's gonna Yeah, this is this is all part of the plan right to reinvigorate American farming, and you could maybe make the argument that farmers could retool their crops if they hadn't perverted everything to growing corn and ruin their fields and sucked all the nitrogen out of the crops out out of the soil by growing corn subsidized by the US government. But, you know, we talked about Chinese labs having problems with hygiene and quality control. Chinese food suppliers have the same problems, if not worse. In 2014 a Chinese top meat supplier was accused of intentionally selling expired meat to restaurant companies. As a result, McDonald's announced that they were overhauling completely redoing their Chinese food safety strategy. In 2008 ingredients tainted with melamine enter the global food supply, pose any products from Mars, Heinz and Cadbury. Infant formula tainted with melamine sickened 30,000 Excuse me 300,000 babies hospitalizing the 4000 in China and killing six and a 2011 report. Three years after the crisis from the Food and Water Watch Institute found quote little evidence. China's food safety situation is improving. Chinese pet treats kill more than 1000 dogs in in America every year, and industrial pollution contaminates Chinese water with more than 30 million tons of chemical discharge per year. So yeah, the products that we're still getting from China, far from our from safe, far from the paragons of safety that, uh, people just come to expect, right? They order the product online, they buy the product at the grocery store. They assume that it's been checked and inspected and and, ah, it's safe. Yeah, nothing could be further from the truth, especially if the product is coming from China. And this has the prospect, of course, of leaving millions of Americans very hungry if Corona virus disrupts American grocery supply chains. So under normal shopping conditions. And this is crazy, you go into ah grocery store and you see wall a wall floor to ceiling stocked with food. Well, the average American grocery store only has enough stock on hand on the shelves and in the back entire stock only enough to last 3 to 5 days without replenishment. Of course, this is essential for grocery stores, especially with with fresh goods to cycle them quickly so they don't expire. Ah, in a crisis situation, assuming there is no or ineffective rationing going on, this drops to about 24 hours before stores are completely emptied of essentials, and the most likely scenario to play out here. A potential scenario that could play out is news of a potential supply. Chain disruption circulates people hear about this or a certain product becomes unavailable, which then leads to panic and causes a rush on all other products. And we've seen this actually happened already in Germany. In certain regions of Germany, grocery stores have have been emptied and are shutting down. We're seeing this in the US, with with respirators and other other safety and safety equipment being had a stock and not being restocked. The CDC actually is currently cautioning Americans to avoid raw meat for fear of possible contamination. And yeah, dude like you can easily envision a scenario where where grocery stores start, not having certain things in stock and people become desperate and scared. And all of a sudden there's nothing left in your grocery store when you go to buy your groceries in the evening. Yeah, I mean, if they don't, if they don't come up with alternative methods for production and as we pointed out, I mean the U. S economy has become so dependent American Empire has become so dependent on Third World markets for supplying a lot of these raw materials and raw supplies and food products and everything else. Virtually everything you know, the trope that nothing is made in America anymore is pretty riel. And they don't have the ability to just, you know, wave magic wand and turn things back on and start producing things anymore. I mean, this this whole thing about the War Powers Act to force three m to produce more masks that apparently nobody needs to wear except for government workers. Right, Mike Pence. It's kind of funny how that works. Um, they can't, you know, like the War Powers act. For those of you out Maria Rylander. It's something from the Korean War era where the government essentially could say you were going to produce X amount of these products and you're gonna produce them for us. And essentially, they can do that with anything. But it only works if the factory exists in the first place. And if you don't have the ability like you can't just say, like load up trucks with non existent product and ship them all over America, the whole thing breaks down very quickly. And this is something that people have been calling out for a while. They talk about it if there were an E M P attack or anything else. And could you imagine something like that in the midst of everything going on already with the virus? And see, that's that's the problem is, um, you know, we've talked about before, like, you know, with 9 11 taking place and then things happening again in the middle of something like this. It's it's this is this is pretty bad. We're going to get to that in the meta arena, but we still have quite a bit left to go through with with some of these items on the supply chain and And what a quarantine might mean for people as well, right? Yes. So the supply chain is like people think you order your product from Amazon or wherever, and then it shows up at your door the next day or in two days. You think? Wow, it must have come all the way from China in a span of two days. This is amazing. It got packet shipped overnight. Well, the typical shipment from China takes about 30 days by sea, so we have a 30 day orm or lead time between when effects are take place, when when production disruptions take place in China to win their felt felt in the US and we're getting to the point now we're at the beginning of March. This became a widespread ah, really widespread problem in China in mid to late January, and we are and people had to return to work after the Lunar New Year, etcetera in early February. So around early March mid March. That's when we're really gonna start seeing some of these disruptions to the American product availability. Now they did a study where they looked at Chinese labor force participation after the Chinese New Year and typically in a typical year. They will do the Chinese New Year in January and then afterwards. Within a week. Labor force returns to 100% this year. The one week later number was 25%. So 75% of Chinese workers not going back to work in that week after after the Chinese New Year. And yeah, you have 780 million Chinese people currently under travel restriction. Factories that have reopened have worker levels of 40 to 45% with 60% of Chinese factory workers in some of these regions. Not going to work either, because they like because they're dead already. Yeah. I mean, they've already been burned up in a crematoria, right? Yeah. No need to hang yourself from the from the bathroom or from the suicide note at the Foxconn factory because you're already dead. And so this guy David and Linskey is a Chinese business consultant. Used to run a factory in China. He's saying he did, Yeah, of course. David Wenske did that. Ah, and he's saying literally empty shelves in Target and Walmart as early as April because of this one month lead time. Right? And we have and it's stuff stuff iss on ships at sea, right? It's like it's not like things just pop out of an Amazon conveyor belt. It's like all this stuff has to be loaded onto container ships and sent across shipping lanes and moving all over the planet. And China is the hub for a lot of this, right, And ah, yeah, they're currently need Oh, sorry. They're currently undergoing in manufacturing collapse that we have not even begun to feel the effects off the Chinese PM I purchasing many managers. Index fell to a record low of 35.7 in February, indicating massive contraction. Again, Anything less than 50 indicates contraction. Yeah, in the in the mid thirties, and analysts had only expected to decline to about 46. So this is literally twice as bad as industry experts were predicting. Capital economics firm estimating Chinese economy would contract outright year over year for the first time since the 19 nineties. Yeah, this is This is not good, and we haven't again in America. We haven't even begun to feel the effects of this. We have Amazon merchants already cutting spending on the platform. 6% cut in an advertising spending businesses closing down, drop shipping companies essentially closing up shop. Um, yeah, and and so this is all this is all in the car. It's This is all still coming down the pike. This guy, Dan Brown, sure runs any commerce consulting business, and he puts it right on the nose. She says what was supposed to ship in February or March now won't be shipped until April. We have items out of stock that won't be back until April, so again, even after this thing is rolled up or no longer becomes a crisis. And let's say that happens in April May Maybe you're still looking at this playing out and the effects on the economy lasting for at least 2 to 3 months after the fact. Yeah, it's gonna go on for quite some time. And this is what we're pointing out before is there aren't tools that they can use to fix this, in fact, and it goes back to this Catch 22. The only proper way of addressing this is immediate, swift and insanely draconian measures, and they insanely draconian like If you think you're measures air insane and draconian, you're probably not going far enough. That's the That's the motto that I try to follow and virtually everything I do if the measures air, Not if you feel like this is going a little bit too far. You still have quite a bit left to go, and they haven't done any of that. And they haven't done it because they're afraid of what it's gonna do. The economy. But this is so fragile, and China was headed in this direction anyway. And you know, I I feel like I'm so like I have all this meta that I wanna dump. But we still have to complete the picture with the quarantine which would come out of this, which is we're talking about some of the liberties your your American freedoms and liberties that you put Donald Trump in office to make sure that you have. It's like, yeah, right. So tell us, James, what somebody could look forward to Ah, if they actually put in place quarantines that are beyond like, yeah, just stay at home. And like, Please, try not to go outside and touch anything or interact with anyone, right? That's what the's voluntary quarantines are at thes Essentially take a sick day. Go home. Quarantines are. And, of course, those which you're seeing. You're seeing these stories like 100 people 100 people in New York, 100 people in Washington, 100 people in in Los Angeles, etcetera. Going through these voluntary quarantines. Well, that's nice. And these were people who were either exposed to the disease or traveled through areas that where they might have contracted the disease. But again, 78% of Americans living paycheck to paycheck. How many workdays. Can you really mess? Can people afford to miss before they have to go back before they end up like that? Employees at DHS who said that she was in quarantine, but she had to go back to work. And then she said, Oh, well, I'm going to do, uh, do a partial quarantine where I'll just sit at the end of the desk in meetings so I won't be close to people. And that was the acceptable slang. This is like ello like Lowell cow like Quarantine, like a quarantine is like whatever I wanted to be OK, so if I want to sit at the end of the desk, this is my version of a quarantine. You have a different version of a quarantine. Okay, this is what I want to dio and I'm O'Bannon. So it's like this is and this is the result of people just having, like, you know, it's like, what is what is modern day 21st century morality like It's like, Well, just make it up as you go if you wanna, you know, cut off your dick and call yourself a woman. Well, that's that's That's your morality, right? That's your You know, we live in a world where people can just say yeah, like I'm I'm a woman I'm a woman No, And be like Lady Maada trotting all over the national harbor Surette CPAC Yeah, Okay. You're a woman. Speaking of viral loads, right? Yeah. So there's There's 2 to 2 different types of disease mitigation spread mitigation that are often being conflated there, often referring in the media and elsewhere, and it to two everything as a quarantine. But there's a difference between isolation and quarantine. Isolation separates the sick people with a communicable disease in this case, Corona virus from people who are not sick. And the protocol in most of these cases is forced isolation. This is mandated on base or in a hospital. And if you test negative for three days straight, like was written by Mr Steve Goldman in his Corona virus, ain't so bad. Opinion piece. You get to go home. So three days of negative tests and you go home. Now that's different from quarantine. A quarantine will separate and restrict the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick. Some of these quarantines are forced. The people who come back and are kept for 14 days on military bases, they don't have an option. They're required to abide by those. But most of the people that are being quarantined and you're seeing these numbers you're seeing Trump and others touting the quarantine numbers as evidence that the U. S response is adequate. But most of the people who are quote quarantined are on self imposed home quarantines. That's like, Yeah, I'm taking this disease super seriously, right? I'm staying home until it's like, Oh, fuck like I need like, a red box movie to go rent or oh, I need to go like like there's a sale at Wal Mart. Need to hit up and, ah, people are breaking quarantine right And the federal government isn't doing nothing to monitor these people. This is a point that Judge Napolitano made. We're gonna play the audio here in a minute on Fox News Now, the CDC has also published an explainer detailing their legal authority for isolation and quarantine, which is derived from the commerce clause. Section 3 61 of the Public Health Service Act, which is 42 US go to 64 U. S. Secretary of Health and Human Services is authorized to take measures to prevent the entry and spread of communicable diseases from foreign countries into the U. S. And between states and jazz. I read this and I'm like, Whiplash jerked back into late 2018 mode. It's like, Oh, here's another piece of obscure US code Trump could use to ah, close the border. Keep out all these measles ridin Aztecs. But now very easily like this is something that is laid right out there in front of anybody, any any one of dozens. Hundreds of ah white White House lawyers could have looked into this. We know they're not. We know that they're not in Pointing out these laws is to illustrate for those people who think that it's just the demon rats holding Trump back from being unleashed on his immigration agenda, it's like yet no, like, there are other things that they could do and the sort of ah pill pull that they do. Dio usually serve some Jewish interests and not your interest, whereas this they could easily use this to stop this kind of thing. But they don't Yeah, this is another because they they don't because they don't want Teoh. Yeah, this is another trump effect, right? I think the trump effect is having the tools right in front of you to solve the problem and then just gazing upon them and saying, Yeah, that's great. We're But we're doing a great job already. So U s code 42 parts of 70 71 CDC authorize authorized by Congress to detain medically examine and release persons arriving into the U. S. And traveling between states who are suspected of carrying communicable diseases. In other words, between states. This is not just people coming in and out of international flights. This is not going through U. S customs where you can be detained, which you will be, um, this is people just going from I don't know, Indiana to Illinois or Kentucky to Nashville. I don't know wherever you're going, like if you're suspected of carrying a communicable disease, you will be stopped by, I guess. What is the mechanism for enforcement? I honestly don't know. I mean, I guess this is who is Who is the person that enforces this? I mean, what what authorities The CDC have I guess they can do it. Do whatever they want. Um, if you resist quarantine, I mean, what happens to you? Yeah, well, you could be if they and if they were serious about treating this about stopping the spread. Yeah, maybe you know this these ah, virility pads we're seeing between Washington, Oregon and California. Yeah, maybe CDC Suburbans Rolling out a white rica along the southern Oregon border might be a good idea, but yeah, not happening. But in other words, and that is an important distinction. I'm glad you pointed that out. They have the authority not only to detain and quarantine foreigners, but also American citizens. And if the CDC decides you're going to be isolated for medical reasons or any other reason that they present is being medical, you will be isolated. And there is no standard legal redress or appeals process. If you believe you're wrongfully quarantined, you have to go through a legal rigmarole that involves hiring a lawyer and and fighting this and going to a federal judge. Very expensive, very long, very detailed process that very few people are going to embark on even if they are being wrongfully quarantined and I noted this week that engine Napolitano was doing the media doing the rounds on Fox News. And I think we have audio here of him detail ing some of this phenomenon and what people who are quarantined may expect from the legal system can holding from the perspective of civil liberties that there must be some boxes that have to be checked here. And if so, what are those boxes? Well, the boxes air, not civilly. Res boxes, the boxes, air health boxes. So this is just a public health decision and the law is clear. Can't be based on politics or socioeconomic status. It could be based on geography. So the public Health Service I don't want to scare people, but the Public Health Service can say there's been so much exposure in fill in the blank zip code. They're gonna quarantine everybody in that zip code for another two weeks. The federal government can do that Now. Can you challenge the quarantine? Yeah. Yes, you can. How do you do that? Well, you have to hire you can't physically go into court because you're quarantine. Unless you're gonna break the quarantine, you have to hire somebody to go into court for you, who has to demonstrate that you have not been exposed and the you do not have the symptoms yourselves or that the federal government abused its authority when it imposed a quarantine. Such a challenge might be moot because thes quarter. Yeah, bro, you just have to like when they take away your free speech all you have to do, bro. It's just like going to court and ah oh, you can't go into court. But you can call someone on the phone and hire them and ask them to go in on your behalf. And your your rights will be restored because obviously, if you're in the if, if the government is in the wrong, they very quickly correct each and every, um, situation where where they're wrong and you are right. And all you have to do is get in front. Of course, this is America, right? Right. You have rights and liberties. It'll be like Mr Smith goes to Washington, right? You stand up there is there as a righteous American all American man, and expose the exposed these people for doing wrong, and you'll be given redress and sent home and apologise to by the government. That's that's been my experience in my observation with the American government. Definitely. I think. I think he realized that he was going a little bit too far and was just like a But there's, you know, I mean, there are remedies for for this I mean, the government has complete authority to lock you up in a particular zip code if they think that you might be infectious or might be spreading to sinful A or might be a dissident or whatever. I mean, it's crazy how much broad leverage thing, But it's totally not political, right, James, right? It could just be geographical that they could put these people into quarantine, to try to spread a disease, that they've to try to stop the spread of a disease that they failed to stop from the beginning. But don't worry. You have rights to challenge this in court by proxy. And you know, that's assuming the power is an off for You know, your cell phone works and you know things like that. So just get on the internet. And since I'm gonna neo, you don't have email. Well, I guess you know you're in quarantine. And that's just how things work, boy. Oh, you're on a military base, and it just so happens that the sites you would use to find a lawyer or blocked and restricted Wow. Okay, I don't forget. Don't forget about that. Like when people say, yeah, this everybody in the zip code is quarantined. That doesn't mean like, ah, cool, bro. I just get to sit on my couch and calf, netflix and stuff. It's like, No, you're being put on a little white bus and taken to a military base and put into actual quarantine. Yeah, and it's trying to scare people, but this is what they're doing. Like, what do you think? That was when we talked about all the military bases four weeks ago that were told to prepare all these quarantine procedures in case there was a break out in the United States. They started planning for this a long time ago. So just the flu, bro, that they're telling you on Wednesday as the bottom of the market is falling out while they're planning for quarantines at military bases. I mean, that sounds like hyper bowl, doesn't it, James? It sounds like crazy insane wild rhetoric and it ain't gonna happen here, but, I mean, I don't Look, look, I hope none of this happens. I hope three months from now or nine weeks from now or whatever period of time that you want to apply to this thing is that flights have resumed and, you know, the numbers in China turned out to be really where they were getting 4000 new cases a day. But all of a sudden, you know, I don't know. People just built up immunity for this thing, and it's sort of just stopped. And these cases are media hype. And, um, the market recovers, which I don't really give a fuck about. But like, let's say that like, all of these things sort of turn around and there are no systemic problems that they can't solve for with any of these tools and nobody nobody dies. I mean, ultimately, that's that that's the best outcome. But, um, it doesn't look like it's going that way. And if you start connecting the dots so good and the cannot, connecting dots is definitely not what we want to do. Um, and trace sort of the severity of this from when we started talking about it and focusing on it until now, Every time that we said, I hope it doesn't get worse. It's gotten worse, right? Like every time we've said, Oh, yeah, this this thing could probably just go away and it could be a nothing burger, uh, is not turned out to be the case now. At the same time, we're also not saying like, bro, this is gonna You know, everybody on the planet is gonna be affected by this, and you know, they're gonna be seven billion deaths. And there's gonna be, like, five people left when it's all over, like living in bunkers like nobody's saying that either, because that's like the other side of the equation. But it's the trajectory of this, and the trend seems to be that it's getting worse, and the government is not doing what it needs to do about it. Anybody who speaks up, out about that is called a demon rat or a hoaxer, or somebody that's spreading dis info, right? And the thing I'm concerned about when we've had other crises in our past, um such as 9 11 and other things, which is this is altogether different is that they are going. The draconian measures that are going to be applied are not going to be applied to prevent the disease. There's a very high degree of potential for draconian measures to be applied on you because you are actually the disease. People who have rejected neo liberalism, people who don't want to be a part of this fake in gay political dichotomy that keeps being foisted upon us like we're the problem. And it's not just us. It's the people who, what, Bernie Sanders or want Donald Trump, the people who didn't accept Jet but they didn't. You know, somebody didn't put a big scoop of slop on your tray, and you didn't eat it happily and smile and say how good this is. It's like, no, you rejected it. And the people who have rejected it in the fact that neo liberalism in the two party system and everything else are starting to fail is a major major problem. I mean, you know it. It may even disrupt the 2020 election before I go any further with the rial meditates that I have. James, you wanna do this bit and then I'll do mine. Oh, yeah, it's just worth noting that if you well, it's worth noting that if you're not a pay will sub, you haven't heard the dissection of Israeli spy tech and how that plays into doomsday scenarios, including global pandemic, that have been conducted and essentially war gamed with the involvement of the US, DHS and and other national and local authorities to analyze how different things could be manipulated. Different technologies, different services different. Ah, the power grid, for example. All of these things could be modified and hacked and used to essentially cancel elections or a invalidate the results of elections. One of the things that cyber reason, which is this Israeli spy tech company used and incorporated into their simulations to determine the effects on a potential election. The election suppressing effects pandemic. They looked at pandemic and how that would disrupt or invalidate an election. And sure enough, on Saturday, Wired magazine article comes out saying Corona virus may disrupt the 2020 election. We need a plan. You need a backup plan. Yeah, we need to figure out how to solve this election, right? In case people can't show up to vote right. What? We have to have alternatives for our democracy. Don't be James, right? Yeah, Exactly. Exactly. Right. And that includes Maybe just people don't go to the ballots at all. Maybe we have 100% mail in ballots. We have zero I d checks, 100% fraud. Trust the plan. Yeah. I mean, I hate toe laugh, but it is becoming just a caricature of itself, right? Like, if you had said these things five years ago, people would be like, Come on, bro. Like, you know, this this whole idea of I mean, maybe not fixing elections, but worldwide pandemic plus major economic collapse plus terrorism question mark plus war, strife and everything else. And then, yeah, we still gotta have an election, though It's really important that, you know, we continue on with our democracy, so yeah, well, just do that online. Could you sign this, Doc use sign form and make sure it doesn't go to Sam and then you'll be you'll be all set to go. You can pick the candidate of your choice, and rest assured your vote will be counted. We'll just let you know who wins on television. Um, definitely don't go outside or go to any polls or but keep buying things. Please. Yeah, I don't totally trust you. Keep buying things. Don't talk to people about the election, because if you do, you'll be silenced on social media. Uh, don't. And you can't leave your house. You don't engage in any of these conversations in real life with people and with and this like look, people, you know, could say, Well, you guys walk Hawk Is the dietitian conspiracy? No, you could. You could say, Oh, it's being It's conspiratorial or something. But really it's not. And we're seeing these means seated already. Know guy the The only conspiracy is that this is just like the flu, bro. Like right, That's the only conspiracy. And listen to the CDC saying that that your responsibility CDC and Mike Pence combined a responsibility. Me, Amy Klobuchar at the last debate. I'm not going to give out my website. I'm going to show how much of a bigger person I am. It's, and I'd like to direct everyone to the CDC website so that you can get as much information about Corona virus. See, I'm taking this seriously. Donald Trump is not vote for me. And it's like, you gotta be fucking kidding me right now. Amy, what's the hygiene status of using your hair Combed salad with a CDC? Everything on that. But now you put her in permanent Corentin. Well, I think I think that's about to happen electorally, but yeah, we have the CDC and Mike Pence and you look at the U. S. Government response as a whole, silencing the epidemiologists that are warning this may become a big quarantine Donald Trump commanding you to go and participate in the market. You have Mike Pence saying Americans don't even need to bother with basic health precautions like buying a mask. Trump saying Don't disrupt your daily routine. The CDC, warning you to be vigilant about online disinformation, to report online disinformation to report racism and xenophobia that's taking place related to Corona virus. You look at all of this combined and well, and ah, it's helpful explainer coming from the CDC about you essentially not having any rights in case you are decided to be infected with one of their faulty test kits. By the way, if if they're faulty, test kit indicates you have Corona virus Wow, It looks like your head to head of the military base. You know, Dr, let your guns in this box and come with me. You really can't accuse. Like what we're doing and what we're saying. What really anybody else in our milieu is saying is some sort of conspiracy theory because, look, hook, if the government was issuing tests, kits that were accurate and you're getting up to the minute reporting on they Oh, they fix that problem? We had a problem, but we fixed it. And anybody who thought that they might have a problem could have a test. And you got an accurate count of the people who had been tested, not just like vague, obscure numbers. Ah, there weren't questions about what was going on in China. The numbers were being questioned. The United States wasn't sitting back and saying nothing. People are going out and giving different pieces of information. Oh, it's just like the regular flu. It's just like this. And then you have people saying nothing to worry about. It's air tight, right, James is we have the situation in the U. S. Is locked down air tight, and then, you know you have these unknown, Kate, quote unquote unknown cases popping up on the West Coast. It's It's like, Wow, um, you know, like, then I should be able to sit back and say, Yeah, I think everything's fine. I can trust the government is gonna handle this and everybody has my best interest in mind, right? Like that's exactly what we're supposed to feel. But no, that's not the case. And there also are some ice cold takes on this. And this is kind of my favorite part of the show because we're we've we've given you all this information that we know of. And this is the stuff that we Peru's on the virus and thought that it was important to sort of put into this this narrative here and there are some ice cold takes. I gotta I gotta put the ice school takes out there and then we'll tell you what we actually think about this. And so one of them that I saw was a secret cab, all of jewelry running. The Chinese Zionist shadow government in Beijing released the virus to oust Jingping. This'll is all part of some intra Chinese Jew operation and doesn't really have much to do with us at all. Right? Um, bro, this is a nothing burger. Just like the flu, bro. The totally frank anti trump media is hyping this which crashed the markets. Please be patriotic and go shopping, bro. This is going to lead to worldwide civilisational collapse. And there will only be two, maybe three, possibly 400 people left on the planet living in underground bunkers. Ah, and of course, always. Never, never, always on off. Lowitt binary thinking all day long, right? Like this is the reaction to this stuff and the reason why you know, we said this before will say it again. The reaction of kroner Chan is different than what we've seen before with h one n one SARS, Ebola, etcetera. If agencies and institutions seemingly having no idea what to dio, you have chaotic application of policies and procedures you have delayed and even non existent government intervention. So again, if this originate in China, why's the right reaction from the U. S. Been so muted? There's no anti China agitprop, no demands to a system, no calls for trying to to change anything about what it's doing. Flights coming in and out of China with no problem. China itself has gone silent. No one's questioning this at all. Total news, blackout and maybe one of the reasons why they're questioning their nobody is saying anything about China. Going silent is because that's just good for the global economy, right? That's the chewy Bono, like is long as the economy is going well or it's in a state of collapse that they can control. Just don't ask any questions like we really don't give a shit if you get infected with this virus like you're just gonna were gonna keep living our lives. Doesn't really matter how many people die, but, oh, please keep buying product essentially is that's the feeling I get from the government and, ah, you know, just from talking to Norm, ease. Um, they don't have the heavily nuanced understanding what we're saying here. But the feeling that I get from people from talking to them is that they have no information. They don't know what's going on. Um, they don't know what to do. They don't know whether they should stay home or go outside or be in a crowded place. Or maybe not. They don't really know what to do. And that's kind of the opposite. Like this is, you know, I hate to pull this out of the bag, but like, you know, people, you know, people expect more from a government like we should. You know, part of the central thesis of what we dio is are calling out the corruption and in the people at the top, and especially the specific tribe that is at the top. But all of that is being driven by. We deserve better, right? We deserve better. Um, out of out of our out of our government, right. That's a basic premises that there is something bad happening. It may have originated in some other part of the world, but we expect someone to take a stand on this and give us the information that we need. And we've got literally the opposite because the people at the top the ah, the Jew in the world jewelry in the global financial markets are what reign supreme, the people in it, or just widgets who produce things who consume things and, ah, you know, pretend to participate in elections and get excited for next candidate. Red candidate blue, and that's really your only job. James is just to be a good old debt slave and let us worry about everything else, including the restructuring of the entire financial system, which may be the result of this global financial collapse that we see coming. Well, there's no question that further consolidation of elite power and wealth is already being is already one of the outcomes of this, as we noted, with the selloff amongst private investors and reinvestment among many institutional investors. But the reaction that I've noticed from many people has been one that is all too common for people in our milieu. And that is one of indignance right where you'll talk to people about this and like, bro, why do you know this? Why do you care so much about this? Why are you so paranoid that people who are concerned about preparation or about the ramifications are being seen? It, this is This is, I think, a result of the of how this was presented initially in the media. People are are convinced that those, like, very concerned about this. There's something abnormal about that, and especially amongst people who are still imbibing what they're getting from Trump and Pence and Fox News, etcetera. They just believe that everything is going to be fine, because it has to be because we're America, because we get over things like this because we're not like those dirty, bad eating Chinese. And so how could something like this happen in America? There is so much that we don't know. And one of the most dangerous things, regardless of whether you're talking about politics or just life in general, is assuming you know what you don't. And this is a problem that is plaguing people. In their response to this, assuming that this operates like the flu, assuming this operates like a cold, assuming that simply washing your hands after you go to the bathroom or L Obonyo is going to be enough to keep me from getting this. We where there's absolutely no reason to believe that when you have health care workers getting sick, people that in theory should be amongst the best prepared to avoid a contracting contagious disease when they are contracting this there is so much out there that we don't know, and ah, I think a little bit of extra caution preparedness never heard anybody in a case like this. Well, a lack of information is a good friend of mine used to say, uh who is no longer around. A good friend of mine used to say that a lack of information, especially in times of crisis in times of strife, especially in a time of pandemic and intentional lack of information, is actually a form of terrorism. It iss ambiguity, vagueness, incomplete information, not able to act on the best information you have, especially when that information is being kept from you. That is a form of terrorism like our Go ahead and argue with that. Like if you have a virus that is out in in the country and people don't have access to testing and they know they're not really sure who has it, And they don't have good, clear, complete information about incubation period in inanimate objects and how long it can survive in all these pieces of information that you need to know. But if you do know you're looked at as some sort of a spurge for trying to understand this, if you're intentionally kept from following the what it was Gavin Newsom call them the perfect protocols of for this. Then what is that, right, Like you, your might as well just push somebody in front of a moving train. I mean, that, Z, what's the difference, right? If you're gonna put your family at risk because you don't have the right information, it's it's kind of crazy. And I know like, you know, this this l of this rhetoric is kind of elevated, but it's true. And when you start to look at the the situation that is taking shape, you have to start asking the question chewy bono and also the fact that they never let a good crisis go to waste. So whether you say that this originated from a lab in Wuhan and it was some glow in the dark up or something, that the Chinese did is a retaliation or like whatever the fuck it is, the fact is that you have a major crisis being burst at the moment, and we know in the past in every other situation that's happened like this, they never let a good crisis goes away. So if you thought the Patriot Act and FISA courts were bad, if you think that Israeli spy tech is bad. If you thought daily, weekly and monthly purchase of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube were bad, just wait until they use global pandemic, coupled with global financial collapse and possibly coupled with, ah, a lot, lot of other problems, including while they So they're dis info. And anybody who tries to point out that they're lying are stamped out simply for asking the question. Chewy bono like, Do you really think that these people, aside from the financial restructuring and if there's a collapse, like how they how they're gonna arrange that in such a way, so that when the lights come back on, it's like they somehow end up with all the advantage in people end up being The gap is even wider between the people who have in the people who don't you start to have asked, why why would they use such a crisis? Whether it's accidental or intentional, why would they use this to their advantage? What is going on? Why now? And you know they have succeeded right at obliterating white control of U. S business and institutions while also decimating America is a hub for farming and manufacturing. They've succeeded in destroying American community. Life in social bonds, family formation, gender roles, birth rates, demographics, morality and so on. The immutable reality is that the post World War 22 party system is no longer working. Like I said before, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders were both outsiders who knocked down and are knocking down the two party barriers to entry that should have stopped them. Now you can argue with the end result, but most people will agree that those people never should have been allowed in tow. Like Donald Trump, they did not want him to be elected president. United States and Bernie Sanders. They definitely don't want that guy elected as president either, or even getting the nomination. And so what if the foreign interference in the 2016 election James was actually Israel and not Russia? Given all we know about his really spy tech, what you think about that theory, I think Azi. Yeah, I think that's indisputable fact at this point, Yeah, I mean, it's more more will be revealed, I'm sure, but it's like, Yeah, I mean, that's always the joke. It's like, What about Israel interfering in the election? It's like, well implying that they didn't interfere to get Donald Trump in office. Maybe, we don't know, but nobody's talking about that. But, moreover, it's this abject refusal to support neo liberal candidates. Jeb Bush, Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney. You know, they thought they were on a roll with Obama. He and Bush, 43 were the beginning of what was supposed to be this post 9 11 transformation. And yes, you can say politics is Facon gay. But that has to have a lot of qualifiers with it, like politics is fake and gay. So then why are they turning things upside down to stop people from getting into office? Because politics was very faking gay, when it was a succession of Bushes and Clinton's and Reagan's and so on and so forth, which they thought they were going to continue with a Clinton and then a Bush, or maybe a Bush and then a Clinton. But they they haven't succeeded in doing that. And the reality is, is that people aren't smiling and eating up this neoliberalism that has been sold. And so this is a broader phenomenon around the world. Post World War two democracies are no longer working populism is on the rise all over the white world. And yes, they have to keep playing political whack A mole with this elaborate system of gatekeepers. Information of never ending controlled opposition parties. But the more they do this, the more moles there are two whack and it isn't working. You have post World War Two wars for Israel in the Middle East. They can't prosecute them anymore. Post World War two. Appetite for regime change in toppling it isn't working. Nobody wants to do that. Post World War Two academic institutions A que chief arbiters of Jewish propaganda. It's not working. People aren't buying it. You have the student loan problem, which we illustrated on. Um, a recent episode. You have Hollywood TV media gatekeeper propaganda is no longer working and most importantly, proper. Probably at the center of all this is you have worldwide awareness of Zionism, both Israeli and Jewish. Diaspora power is higher than it's ever has been before. This is the end of what is always the same cycle over thousands of years, and now you have too many Americans and others around the world are aware of Zionism. You know, 5 10 years ago, was a handful of people half a percent 1% of the population. Ah, usually people that could be isolated, easy for them to manage, always a small number of people. But just think in the last five years the number of people who are now becoming aware of Jewish power and it's exploded. Um, people are not running away from these ideas anymore. Instead, normal people are starting to be or reminded they're starting to talk about ideas that were once anathema. The whole Holocaust thing is being questioned. A starting place and conversation has been taking place online. And, yeah, you can say that. Yeah, but they've taken everybody off line. But if you go out, look comment sections. I mean, in a lot of places, such that comment section still exist. I mean, it's tough. It's like when things become a new normal and things move. It's such a slow pace, and humans sort of have short memories and so on and so forth. It's easy to get used to like a new normal, but it's hard to get back into what things were like 56 10 years ago. And the speech suppression isn't working. It's not stopping the noticing. So I mean, it kind of gets it kind of gets a little You know what is really going on here, James, we're talking about this a little bit last night. Um, you know, not not on the show. And it's kind of it's like when things get bad and they can't stop people from noticing. And the suppression isn't working. And taking people off line isn't working. And just the general public who may not even be aware of the things that were aware of starts rejecting these neo liberal candidates because the program is working. They have to change things, and you can change things in a financial collapse. Ah, pandemic is proves to be a useful crisis is well, and I, for one and frankly genuinely concerned about what all of that wrapped up in the one could look like because, you know, if they pointed out in their in their media and whatever, that they the terrorism stuff only gets them so far. But a pandemic where you have people not just afraid of walking down the street in New York City they're afraid of, I don't know, like touching something that somebody else touched two hours ago. Ah, there's a whole hell of a lot of draconian government measures that could be put into place, and thus they get to solve a lot of their problems at once. Perhaps the Bernie problem with the 2020 Election. They get to solve the problem of people not buying into this stuff anymore. They get to solve a lot of the problems with the economy being fragile. So they hit the fucking reset button and they get to reform things the way that they want. Part of the problem that they've had with noticing two gets rolled up into Epstein and all this other stuff like they've had a lot of like, You know, it's like it's it's easy to get lost in, Yeah, guys like we're not getting what we want right now, but you have to remember like it's been. It's not been a very good situation for them. And things are so chaotic and tumultuous right now because they can't get this shit dialed in and there very quickly, losing control of it. Yeah, and terrorism has worked in the past, but terrorism has for them the negative side effect of increasing xenophobia and is starting a conversation about about, uh, race started conversations about immigration conversations, about groups of people that should be excluded, whether those air on racial or religious lines. I mean, look at the response to San Bernadino, their response to the pulse nightclub shooting, the response that I think that one of the biggest catalysts in the last 10 years and there's no easier, definitive way to rank thes. But I think up at the top three you have to put Trayvon Martin, and you have to put the tyre attacks in 2015 in Europe, right? In terms of awakening, people and people are breaking out of the narrative. They're being controlled in. So terrorism has ah, has some unintended side effects that they, uh, are not advisable to Them, in fact are detrimental to them. And they set their project back further. Yes, they can usurp civil liberties as they have with the Patriot Act and India, etcetera, but something like a pandemic where, as you pointed out, they're not placing the blame on Chinese or on China. In fact, they're doing the opposite there, demanding that you rally together, that you not see race that you look beyond the politics. This is a very convenient opportunity, a very fertile opportunity to usurp power and do so in the name of protecting the national interest. And I think that's actually protecting the international interest. Yes, maybe. Why you see so much of this. Maybe not going so hard on the Chinese or on any particular country or on any particular countries measures because they're trying to push for global unity. This is a global crisis. This is not just a terror attack in New York City. This is not just a one off event, a tsunami, and in ah, in Japan, this is not one thing. This is a worldwide thing that requires a worldwide global response, and it doesn't make sense. Toe have hundreds of different countries all acting in different ways and different protocols and whatever. And it's kind of funny, you know, that the United States isn't the one leading the example with the way to do this. And maybe that's by design. Maybe. Maybe that is so that there to ensure that there is chaos to ensure that the situation becomes so dire that there does need to be somebody that steps up and says, Hey, look, somebody has to take the lead here on a global scale. And I hate Teoh. I hate to go that far with it, but look back at the past 200 years, my dude. I mean, look at this. Imagine, 200 years ago what the state of the world was like. It was mostly monarchy. And then you had essentially a century and 1\/2 of revolution. And what were those revolutions going toward tohave? You know, just individual nationalized countries, very nationalistic countries with rising populism. No, this is a problem for them. And people are starting to realize what's going on. And it's time, I think, where they have to put in a major macro fix instead of trying to fix these things ad hoc in in a one off sort of situation. And And look, they you know, these the idea that see, this is how this works, So global financial collapse actually doesn't mean that anything that they've built gets destroyed. It means the things that you've built and you've believed in get destroyed. What they've built remains largely intact. Thes global corporations that are selling people product like they're still going to be in need for that. In a world where essentially everything is operated like maybe not so behind the scenes anymore. But right out in front, Um and I know it seems a little bit crazy, but isn't this like, don't most people agree? Like, this is the direction that they've wanted to go. Isn't this supposed to be the end result of globalism? Where downtown Lagos, Nigeria, is indistinguishable from some strip mall in Kansas City? I mean, that's supposed to be the end game right where everybody is consuming, everybody is just pumped full of product. And everybody is a debt slave with, you know, $110,000 of debt, a 29.9999% a p r. And, ah, you know, the world really doesn't work unless everybody is able to get buffalo wild wings and everything else that I know. It sounds trite to say that, but that's what they want, right? Like, this is how they rest total control, and you have to admit things haven't been going very well for them. I mean, if their goal, if you're measuring quote going well as achieving this goal of global hegemony, and they haven't achieved that. No. And their pursuit thereof has drawn more attention to their mission. Then they've ever had on it before it certainly in the modern era, maybe not never before, but certainly in the modern era. And you're right. It is. Pursuit of global leveling has faced several interruptions in hiccups and inconveniences. And I mean, this is Ah, this pandemic again is an opportunity that could be seized on to solve so many of their problems. Not only can it can it lead to the ah economic consolidation that they're looking for could lead to the political consolidation. They're looking for the consolidation of state power as well, and the further furtherance of international cooperation. Right to what end remains the question. But yeah, yeah, I mean, you could argue a lot of different angles on this, but the idea that you would have to suspend 200 years of progress from their perspective to say that this is a nothing burger and nothing's nothing's going to change. And it's going to result in the same note because thes people are working toward a goal and you could even say that they're behind schedule and part of the reason they're behind schedules because Donald Trump became president, which is something that they did not want. Like Hillary. It's like Was 9 11 Bush, Bush, 43. Barack Obama was supposed to be the baton was supposed to be handed Hillary Clinton, and all of this was supposed to continue, and that was like sort of the good optics Jew timeline. But unfortunately, we have bad optics Jig Nat President, which possibly was aided by the Israeli government. And, ah, we know that this guy hasn't delivered on the promises that he has made. And I think it's no secret why that why that has happened the way that it has, I mean, And the idea that people were saying like not only is Trump gonna go ham after 2020 or Trump is gonna go 20 him in the lead up to 2020 his need to like, Why do you need to do that when basically the whole thing is is fixed in your way, like he doesn't have to? He doesn't have to do anything he had to. He had to use that rhetoric in 2016 to get his shoe in the door and with a little bit of a boost from some foreign interference. But that doesn't need to do that now. Why does he need to go back to the well on white nationalist talking points? Those people are the people that they want to suppress. They want to shut down on. And it's not just white nationalism because they consider anybody who isn't on board with their plan. White nationalists like people who are not going to be passionate supporters of the global home agenda, people who are not gonna be passionate supporters of dissolution of national borders and sovereign nations. They're just going to be going right along with whatever is going along, and they want those people out of the way. And so, yeah, it's Ah, not right. And that applies to left wing populism as well. We're seeing Marie supporters be branded as Russian agents, white supremacist, many of them, in fact, in this last week, and Trump can coast on momentum largely in 2020 and we haven't talked about this before, But why? I suppose we have, actually, but with the Bernie movement in the state that is sad and reaching the level of popularity that it's at with 50% of Bernie Sanders supporters pulled, saying they will not vote for the Democratic nominee unless it is Bernie Sanders with the DNC clearly indicating they're going to do everything they can to stop Bernie Sanders. We had Chris Matthews actually repeating one of our narratives this past week by postulating that the Democratic Party it may be in their interest to throw the election if Bernie becomes the nominee. So we have a scenario where Bernie if he becomes a gnomic, yeah, Chris Matthews of Get that, get that drunk off television. He's saying too much, says the media producer behind off stage. It's like Jesus, Chris, Right? Right. Okay, this'll guy hit the bottle too hard, and he's like giving away what, like were supposed we're gonna be doing so yeah, Bernie backstage eliciting Teoh ftn to 87 perhaps, but air. Not Bernie, Chris, but yes. So if you're a Bernie supporter, you have a situation where if he gets the nomination, you know the DNC is going to throw the election and they will allow Trump to win. And if he doesn't well, you're going to stay home because you're not going to vote for Joe Biden nor Mike Bloom work or whoever is put put in front of you whatever slop can and it is put in front of you and we're told to eat from the walkable or you're not gonna do it. So if you're Trump, yeah, like, you see these people out here like like showing up to the GOP office with with a stack full a graph saying, Look, Mr President, the demographics are are bad. Why do you have to listen to them? You don't because you know the up, you know, it's going to be mailed in from the other side. Well, speaking of HIV viral outbreaks in National Harbor, Maryland, Uh, if you want to get some good takes on CPAC, definitely check out tedious on Friday. If you haven't already, and if you can't check it out, it's because you're not behind the Paywall. The right stepped up his slash paywall. Uh, we're gonna be doing more political takes reacting to Super Tuesday on Wednesday with Eric Striker, myself and James Bond. Yeah, I guess you know Joe Biden won in South Carolina. Really doesn't matter. He's not gonna win anywhere else. Tom Styer dropped out. Tom Styer is totally out of the out of the race for 2020. So, yeah, it's basically like bloomy Jew and Bernie Jew, and a lot is gonna be decided on Tuesday, a t least in terms of who has delegates, whether it's a majority or plurality and or just enough to clinch the nomination. And then, yeah, we're going to see how this thing shakes out. We'll get Eric's take on various things and everybody has a good rest of their weekend and, uh, that you guys later
