While the mainstream Western media supports the narrative that the epicenter of the COVID-19 Pandemic was at a dirty and damp street fair in China, media reports from Japan and Taiwan are beginning to raise evidence that this new coronavirus originated in the US. This is after the sudden closure last year of a biological weapons laboratory in Maryland, due to the lack of safeguards against pathogenic leaks.

Then there were “pulmonary fibrosis” crises in the USA, the blame for which was placed on electronic cigarettes. Along with the 'coincidence' of the hosting of the Military World Games in Wuhan shortly before the outbreak of the crisis, the 'Cornavirus Event' will probably go down in history as one of humanity's greatest social engineering events. It will mark the beginning of a new era of biopolitics and bioeconomics: “circuit brakers” that go beyond the simple tool of stopping a financial market in crisis - a new form of social consensus by putting the whole daily life of individuals and political scenarios in suspension. A gigantic 'psyop' to create the perfect geopolitical scenario of 'total spectrum dominance'.

Circuit Breaker is a security mechanism used by the Stock Exchange to interrupt all operations at a time when the shares traded suffer large drops considered atypical - it is expected that the trend will be to soften the falls and the market will return to its natural movement.  In other words, protect the market from your own “invisible hand”.

In an unprecedented way, Ibovespa used this mechanism three times in a week, on days when a perfect storm was forming: the oil crisis with the stalemate between Russia and Saudi Arabia at a time when the worldwide outbreak of the new coronavirus was qualified as a pandemic by the World Health Organization.

And to top it off, Trump's untimely decision that helped to bring down the stock market further around the world: the suspension for 30 days of travel from Europe to the U.S., an exception open to the UK. Which, we know, is not considered part of Europe. In addition to once again revealing Trump's modus operandi: his taste for walls, blocks, barriers ...

The irony in all this is that with the promotion of COVID-19 to a pandemic, the circuit breaker, as a tool for the intervention of the capital market, seems to have transcended the financial system to become a broad measure of social action - suddenly, it seems that society is entering a state of suspension similar to that of the financial markets.

Cancellation of sporting events, suspension of classes at schools and universities, recommendations to avoid agglomerations with more than 100 people, in Rio the PM may interdict beaches to avoid agglomerations, political demonstrations in the programmed streets on the right to the left were prohibited, access to malls may be restricted ... the authorities' recommendation is: STAY AT HOME!

Congress threatens to enter a forced parliamentary recess as a measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Suddenly, gradually, all economic, social and political life begins to enter a state of suspension in time and space.

Social circuit breaker

A gigantic social circuit breaker is taking shape, as in Italy, the country most affected with 1,266 dead and almost 20,000 infected: streets, cafes, shops, deserted stadiums, games and suspended events, while 60 million Italians are in a state of disrepair. quarantine.

And along with all this, a show of “misinformation” by the corporate media that helps with the spice of fear and panic. Mainly the television media that creates a “misinformation” from the contradiction between what the presenters and reporters report and what the “art” (infographics, tables, etc.) show in the cromakeys and effects of computer graphics in the studio. As we discussed in a previous post - click here .

A small example among the newspapers: in the Friday edition of the local newscast Bom Dia SP on TV Globo, an infographic presented the universities of São Paulo that had suspended classes due to infected students. It was there, at the foot of the table, the name of the Anhembi Morumbi University. Then, the presenter would detail that this university had only suspended classes in a night class of the seventh semester of Advertising, determining measures to disinfect the room. While the class would be moved to another building.

It was enough for that morning, WhatsApp groups to share the photo of the global infographic and the University dawn deserted with empty rooms and lonely teachers. One of them also shared the photo of an empty classroom in which a backpack lay in a wallet: “I don't even get close to the backpack”, commented the frightened post of the photo ... then they wonder how WhatsApp was the strategic responsible for the victory of the current president ...

The new era of Social Engineering

Probably the “Cornavirus Event” will go down in history as one of humanity's greatest social engineering events. It will mark the beginning of a new era in the sense that life after the coronavirus and before the coronavirus will be surprisingly different.

Why “social engineering”? Because we are entering the era of biopolitics and bioeconomics that bring a striking advantage in the forms of social control - the prefix “bio” conveys an “apolitical” and “neutrality” image to the distinct public, naturalizing political economy: events of supposed nature biopathology can confer apparent “scientificity”. And in that way, create social consensus.

Since the explosion of the so-called “tulip bubble” of 1637, we know that markets coexist with bubbles as quick ways of gaining and destroying wealth - moments of optimism in the economy, an excess of investor confidence that leads them to bet on a scenario of uninterrupted gains.

Since last year, analysts at the global financial casino have warned of the possibility of a new bursting of the financial bubble, equal to or even worse than the crash of 2008 - the explosion of the housing bubble.

These experts warned of China's rapid growth, the exponential growth of American student credit, the extremely high public debt in Europe. Especially from Italy - more than 130% of the country's GDP.

In Brazil, the exuberance of investments in stock exchanges (presented as the financial bonanza for “sardines”, that is, individuals in the face of low interest rates on fixed income) fueled by media companies such as XP Investimentos, added to the flight in mass of foreign capital, created the perfect scenario for an imminent explosion.

"Fall, but with style"

And more! This situation of the worrying exuberance of a financial bubble had an equally worrying geopolitical scenario for the United States: the trade war with China. The United States definitely wants to drag the world along on the geopolitical strategy of breaking China's increasing share of the global production chain.

Certainly, a new crash could never be the same as in 2008: in dramatic, frightening tones, and which yielded a handful of film productions that celebrated the event: Internal Work (2010), Margin Call (2011), 99 Holmes (2014), The Big Short (2015), among others.

So ... fasten your seat belts, because we're going to "fall, but with style" - as Buzz Lightyear defined his flight in the Pixar Toy Story animation.

HOW CONVEEEEENIENT! I would exclaim the priceless Church Lady from the humorous Saturday Night Live. A new coronavirus pandemic explodes in the Chinese province of Wuhan in late 2019 that would drag the world into a pandemic, overturning global financial markets, bringing heavy economic losses to China and expanding the concept of "circuit braker" as a financial tool for business strategy. social engineering.

Putting the world of the real economy on hold, while the global casino receives heavy contributions of public money in the elaborate script of socializing losses: Trump injects more than $ 1.5 trillion in liquidity into the financial system, while Bolsonaro talks about helping the company and “economic measures package”. Get ready for more socialization of losses, while the “sharks” swallow the “sardines in the financial casino, concentrating even more wealth.

We have epidemics all the time in the world. In addition, we have violent events occurring continuously: from volcanic eruptions, tsunamis or tornadoes, to social unrest or wars. Why, then, was this event that captured people's attention so deeply and powerfully?

In the opinion of this humble blogger, because it was time!

New coronavirus is not Chinese

Western media created the official narrative that the outbreak of COVID-19 emerged in China, precisely on animals in a dirty and humid street market in Wuhan. But the mythical “patient zero” was never located and identified. That's because perhaps the origin is not in China.

Meanwhile, the eastern media (Japan and Taiwan) began to raise evidence that this new coronavirus had its origin in the USA. In February 2020, a report from the Japanese Asahi (print and TV) stated that the coronavirus originated in the USA, not in China, and that some (or many) of the 14,000 American deaths attributed to influenza could result from the coronavirus. He suggested that the US government may not have been able to understand how rampant the virus was on American soil - click.

Coronavirus multiple origins

On February 27, a Taiwanese TV show presented diagrams and flowcharts suggesting that the coronavirus originated in the USA. The man in the video is one of the leading virologists and pharmacologists who has carried out a long and detailed research into the origin of the virus. He spends the first part of the video explaining the various haplotypes (varieties), and explains how they are related, how one must have arrived before the other and how one type is derived from the other. He explains that this is just an elementary science and has nothing to do with geopolitical issues - click here to access the video (in Chinese).

The basic logic is that the geographical location with the greatest diversity of virus strains must be the original source, because a single strain cannot come out of nowhere. He demonstrated that only the United States has all five known strains of the virus (while Wuhan and most of China have only one, as well as Taiwan and South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam, Singapore and England, Belgium and Germany), constituting the thesis that haplotypes in other nations may have originated in the USA.

The virologist also said that recently the United States had more than 200 cases of "pulmonary fibrosis" that resulted in death due to patients' inability to breathe, but whose conditions and symptoms could not be explained by pulmonary fibrosis. The country's authorities have been told to take these deaths seriously. But they only blamed the deaths on electronic cigarettes. To then end the discussion.

He also stated that in September 2019, some Japanese people traveled to Hawaii and returned home infected, people who had never been to China. This occurred two months before infections in China and shortly after the US Disease Control and Prevention Center (CDC) suddenly and completely shut down the biological weapons laboratory in Fort Detrick, Maryland, claiming that the facilities lacked safeguards against leakage from pathogens, according to the New York Times - click here.

It was immediately after this event that the “electronic cigarette epidemic” emerged.

Wuhan reportedly became the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic shortly after the World Military Games (October 18-27, 2019). Some members of the US team, infected by the Fort Detrick incident and after a long incubation period, would have manifested minor symptoms and potentially infected thousands of local residents in the Chinese province.

Kristian Andersen, an evolutionary biologist at the Scripps Research Institute, analyzed sequences from COVID-18 to try to clarify its origin. He said the scenario is "entirely plausible" for infected people bringing the virus to Wuhan from outside.

Andersen published his analysis of the 27 available genomes of COVID-19 on January 25 on a virology research website. He suggests that they had a "more recent common ancestor" - meaning a common source - since October 1, 2019.

Western mainstream media flooded its pages for months about the COVID-19 virus originating in the Wuhan seafood market, caused by people who eat bats and wildlife. All of this has been proven wrong.

The virus did not appear in the seafood market in Wuhan, as has now been proven, but was brought to China from another country. Part of the proof of this claim is that the genomic varieties of the virus in Iran and Italy have been sequenced and declared not to belong to the variety that infected China and, by definition, must have originated elsewhere.

It seems that the only possibility of origin is in the USA, because only that country has the "tree trunk" of all varieties. And so it may be true that the original source of the COVID-19 virus was the U.S. military bio-warfare laboratory at Fort Detrick.

Inflection point

This new coronavirus crisis also represents an inflection point. Because the way people interact has changed and it has become very different from what we used to have only 10 years ago. Because the way information is produced and transmitted has reached an important tipping point.

An atmosphere of media omniscience that creates wider effects than the real disease. COVID-19 is a real and serious disease.

But, as I said, it is not the only endemic, epidemic or pandemic problem we have. We have flu outbreaks every year and there are no isolated or monitored regions or entire countries.

We have shortages of food and water in many parts of the world, leading to many deaths every day, and there are no concentrated and coordinated efforts and a media alarm so that these problems can be resolved.

Why? Because the amount of information surrounding these events is not as relevant as that surrounding the ubiquity of information about the new coronavirus.

Explaining better, there seems to be no direct link between the magnitude or potential danger of a specific event and the amount of information about that event.

Full spectrum domain

The information from Japan and Taiwan and this tipping point created by media ubiquity in which the amount of information does not necessarily correspond to the real magnitude of an event, suggests this plausible doubt: are we facing the beginning of a new era of social engineering?

In Brazil, the coronavirus pandemic arrives at a very convenient time, reminiscent of the concept of “full spectrum dominance” - a concept of military strategy that uses a wide range of psychological and economic warfare techniques.

At a time when economically and politically the country was heading towards a scenario of worsening crisis (from the imminent explosion of the financial bubble to the burning of living files compromising the Bolsonaro clan, such as the death of ex-PM Adriano Nóbrega and the “convenient” fulminant heart attack) ex-minister Gustavo Bebbiano), the economic, political and social circuit braker of the COVID-19 pandemic is as if everything were put on hold in the face of a biological emergency.

And give a convenient time for the pieces to get back together, as if it were a technical stop or a break at a sporting event, demonstrating in practice the strategy of “full spectrum dominance”:

(a) street demonstrations are prohibited;

(b) Just as the truckers' strike served as an alibi for economic stagnation during the Temer Era, so the Coronavirus Pandemic will be the scapegoat for the continuation of unemployment and the crisis. The compulsory neoliberal agenda is out of the question;

(c) To the left, the biopolitical crisis serves its purpose: it gets rid of a potential failure to take the masses to the streets, since in recent years it has disconnected itself from the social bases;

(d) In addition, the waters of the Pandemic crisis move the opposition's “the-worst-the best” mill: the hope that the government's management paralysis and the deepening economic crisis will make Bolsonaro politically bleed even more;

(e) However, it does not matter for the extreme right that the streets are deserted and street demonstrations prohibited: the strength of their symbolic war is in digital media, breathing the atmosphere of contradictory information, fear, panic and hatred.

For this reason, the Pandemia COVID-19 circuit braker increasingly resembles a psy op whose result is total spectrum dominance: putting the entire political spectrum in a state of suspension, in which each side tries to pull the coal from the crisis to your sardine ... While everything remains as it is.
