What's going on with the Coronavirus?

"Thanks to the huge fear generated worldwide, literally billions of dollars were spent by more than 60 countries around the world stockpiling Tamiflu to prevent both the avian and swine flus. As the meds had a shelf life of seven years, almost all of those millions of doses eventually went down the drain, while the billions of dollars spent flowed straight into the coffers of big Pharma and into the pockets of the politicians who supported them. Fomenting fear clearly can be very profitable for some."

Dear friends,

The Coronavirus is spreading and people are dying around the world, but what if...

What if there are some powerful people in our world with no sense of morality or ethics?

What if some of those people – let's call them the power elite – have risen to top positions in government and corporations?

What if these elites at times band together in secret meetings to coordinate how they can get more money and more control over the public?

What if they've learned to take advantage of big shocks to the public – like pandemics and terrorist attacks – to forward their control agendas and make huge profits from predictable market swings and fear-based purchasing?

What if these heartless elites have developed many ways to stealthily fan the fear flames during these shocks to make the public more afraid and more willing to surrender their freedoms to the authorities?

What if the Coronavirus is being used as a further test to see how much more we will willingly give up our freedoms?

What if we, the people, learn to recognize this as it's happening?

What if each of us has incredible untapped power as sovereign individuals to follow our inner and higher guidance and to transform fear into love no matter what challenges we face?

A Brief History of Recent Epidemic Scares

Anthrax – 2001

When letters containing anthrax were mailed to two U.S. senators shortly after the 9/11 attacks, government and media sources immediately fanned widespread fear of massive infections around the country. Yet in the end, as stated in this 2011 NPR article, "Five people died from inhaling anthrax and 17 others were infected after exposure." This 2005 Washington Post article on a later FBI probe of the anthrax attacks states, "Including cleanup costs, an FBI document put the damage in excess of $1 billion." Where did all that money go?

This Oct. 26, 2001 New York Times article states "Bayer agreed ... to sell 100 million tablets of its anthrax medicine, Cipro, to the government for 95 cents apiece. But while Bayer nearly halved its previous price, three big pharmaceutical companies have since stepped forward to offer large quantities of their antibiotics free." The U.S. government turned down the free drugs and spent the $95 million, yet the vast majority of those Cipro pills were never taken and have now passed their expiration date and so were wasted. So who profited from all the fear?

Avian Flu – 2005-06

2005 BBC News article titled "Bird flu 'could kill 150m people’": “A flu pandemic could happen at any time and kill between 5 – 150 million people, a UN health official has warned. David Nabarro, who is charged with coordinating responses to bird flu, said a mutation of the virus affecting Asia could trigger new outbreaks. The WHO spokesman on influenza, Dick Thompson, told a news conference in Geneva that the WHO's official estimate of the number of people who could die was between two million and 7.4 million.”

2008 article in Nature on avian flu: "The 88 cases and 59 deaths reported last year are lower than the 2006 peak of 115 cases and 79 deaths."

The final tally of avian flu fatalities was under 200 for the period of 2005 and 2006. So when the UN and WHO officials who were charged with handling these matters fomented fear by claiming many millions could die, they exaggerated by more than 10,000 times the number who actually died. So how much can we trust the UN and WHO in these matters?

2006 article in UK's Independent titled "Donald Rumsfeld makes $5m killing on bird flu drug": "The US Defence Secretary has made more than $5m (£2.9m) in capital gains from selling shares in the biotechnology firm that discovered and developed Tamiflu, the drug being bought in massive amounts by Governments to treat a possible human pandemic of the disease. More than 60 countries have so far ordered large stocks of the antiviral medication. The drug was developed by a Californian biotech company, Gilead Sciences. Mr Rumsfeld was on the board of Gilead from 1988 to 2001, and was its chairman from 1997. He then left to join the Bush administration, but retained a huge shareholding."

Swine Flu – 2009-10

2010 article in the Washington Post titled "Reports accuse WHO of exaggerating H1N1 threat, possible ties to drug makers": "European criticism of the World Health Organization's handling of the H1N1 pandemic intensified ... with the release of two reports that accused the agency of exaggerating the threat posed by the virus and failing to disclose possible influence by the pharmaceutical industry on its recommendations for how countries should respond. The WHO's response caused widespread, unnecessary fear and prompted countries around the world to waste millions of dollars. At the same time, the Geneva-based arm of the United Nations relied on advice from experts with ties to drug makers."

2010 article in the UK's Guardian titled "Swine flu was as elusive as WMD": "Health chiefs should admit they were wrong – yet again – about a global pandemic. Virologist John Oxford said half the population could be infected [in the UK]. Chief medical officer Sir Liam Donaldson [warned that] '65,000 could die', peaking at 350 corpses a day. The media went berserk. The World Health Organisation declared a 'six-level alert' so as to 'prepare the world for an imminent attack'. If anyone dared question this drivel, they were dismissed by Donaldson as 'extremists'. In the UK, [only] 360 people have died under its influence, most with prior 'non-flu' conditions. Swine flu is not nice ... but bears no relation to the government hysteria."

2012 article in the Los Angeles Times titled "No magic bullet on the flu": “Two employees of a communications company [revealed] they had been paid to ghostwrite some of the Tamiflu studies [and] had been given explicit instructions to ensure that a key message was embedded in the articles: Flu is a threat, and Tamiflu is the answer."

2014 Reuters article titled "Stockpiles of Roche Tamiflu drug are waste of money": "Scientists from the respected research network the Cochrane Review said that the medicines had few if any beneficial effects, but did have adverse side effects. The United States has spent more than $1.3 billion buying a strategic reserve of antivirals including Tamiflu, while the British government has spent almost 424 million pounds ($703 million) on a stockpile of some 40 million Tamiflu doses."

Thanks to the huge fear generated worldwide, literally billions of dollars were spent by more than 60 countries around the world stockpiling Tamiflu to prevent both the avian and swine flus. As the meds had a shelf life of seven years, almost all of those millions of doses eventually went down the drain, while the billions of dollars spent flowed straight into the coffers of big Pharma and into the pockets of the politicians who supported them. Fomenting fear clearly can be very profitable for some.

Zika Flu – 2015-16

2016 New York Times article titled "Zika Virus a Global Health Emergency, W.H.O. Says": "The World Health Organization declared the Zika virus and its suspected link to birth defects an international public health emergency on Monday, a rare move that signals the seriousness of the outbreak. The main worry is over the virus’s possible link to microcephaly, a condition that causes babies to be born with unusually small heads and, in the vast majority of cases, damaged brains."

2016 article in BMJ (British Medical Journal) titled "Zika Virus – Fear is the Key": "Remember the WHO’s pandemic alert on swine flu some years ago? When the WHO was proactive to announce a pandemic then without any scientific justifications I was the one who wrote that that was a business stunt! People did not believe and the British Medical Journal rejected my paper. After one long year what I had predicted came true.  The link between microcephaly and the zika virus is only a hypothesis without much backing in science. This unproven allegation is neither a proper logical nor legal basis for the WHO Global Health Emergency Declaration."

2016 Associated Press article titled "Brazil: 270 of 4,180 suspected microcephaly cases confirmed": "Researchers have been looking at 4,180 suspected cases of microcephaly reported since October. On Wednesday, officials said they had done a more intense analysis of more than 700 of those cases, confirming 270 cases and ruling out 462 others.  Six of the 270 confirmed microcephaly cases were found to have the virus."

Fear mongering around the zika virus causing microcephaly in babies led to governments spending more than $1 billion allegedly to combat the virus. Yet the link to microcephaly was never clearly established and the WHO removed the global emergency status in November of 2016. Where did all that money go?

Coronavirus – 2020

March 11, 2020 CNBC article titled "Up to 150 million Americans are expected to contract the coronavirus, congressional doctor says": Dr. Brian Monahan, the attending physician of Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court, said he expects 70 million to 150 million people in the U.S. will become infected with COVID-19. Marc Lipsitch, professor of epidemiology at Harvard, said ... he thinks about 40% to 70% of the world’s population could become infected with the virus, and of those, 1% will die." (Note that with 1% of 7 billion, he's predicting 70 million deaths worldwide) This New York Times article warns of 160 – 240 million in U.S. infected and 200,000 – 1.7 million deaths.

March 13, 2020 article in the Intercept titled "Big Pharma Prepares to Profit From the Coronavirus": "During the current crisis, pharmaceutical makers may have even more leeway than usual because of language industry lobbyists inserted into an $8.3 billion coronavirus spending package, passed last week, to maximize their profits from the pandemic. The final aid package not only omitted language that would have limited drug makers’ intellectual property rights, it specifically prohibited the federal government from taking any action if it has concerns that the treatments or vaccines developed with public funds are priced too high.

March 17, 2020 article in the UK's Guardian: “Among the 2,158 people to have been killed by the coronavirus pandemic in Italy as of Monday, the oldest was 95 and the two youngest were 39. The two 39-year-old victims were a man with diabetes and a woman with cancer. Silvio Brusaferro, the president of Italy’s Higher Institute of Health, said on Friday that the average age of coronavirus victims was 80.3, with the majority having suffered underlying illnesses." And this March 18th Bloomberg article states "More than 99% of Italy’s coronavirus fatalities were people who suffered from previous medical conditions, according to a study by the country’s national health authority."

March 18, 2020 Newsweek article titled "Inside the Military's Top Secret Plans if Coronavirus Cripples Government.": "Above-Top Secret contingency plans already exist for what the military is supposed to do if all the Constitutional successors are incapacitated. Standby orders were issued more than three weeks ago to ready these plans, not just to protect Washington but also to prepare for the possibility of some form of martial law. The various plans ... are so secret that under these extraordinary plans, 'devolution' could circumvent the normal Constitutional provisions for government succession.

What If...

What if the power elite in their quest for ever more money and control are working in a variety of ways to spread fear and greatly exaggerate the real level of danger of this Coronavirus?

What if they are secretly using each succeeding crisis to see how much we are willing to voluntarily give up our freedoms?

What if the power elite is preparing us to accept martial law where Congress abdicates its power and the U.S. president becomes the supreme leader?

And what if what the power elite most don't want us to know is just how much power we each have as individuals and the tremendous power we have when we come together to shine light into the shadows and work together for a better world?

Resilience Guide for Coronavirus Times
1) Check-in so you don't check-out – be mindful of when you feel afraid and overwhelmed and how that might affect your ability to balance your thinking with different perspectives.
2) Question what you read – don't fall for the old maxim "if it bleeds, it leads!" 
3) Follow the money. Who is profiting both financially and politically from this so-called pandemic?
4) Find the people in your life who can question WITH you what part of the narrative is being left out.
5) Practice self-care – any activity, hobby or way of eating that helps you remember your best self. We need to feel well in order to think well.
6) Physical distancing does not mean social distancing. Crisis brings out the humanity in us so that we are closer and more connected than ever. We are all in this together.
7) Remeber that crisis brings people together. It is a powerful opportunity for learning and growth, if we choose to see it that way.

Long time no see Fred, totally my doing.  Thank you for the above. My intuitive sense from the initial talk of this virus to present has been "What is the coronavirus media circus distracting us from? what in the world are we NOT seeing while in the throws of this chaos?" In agreement regarding being vigilant and attentive to what else is going on around us and in the world as a whole.

Secondly since I believe in a Higher Power and that we humans only see from such a limited perspective, regardless of where or how this virus evolved or is evolving (because yes there are loads of conspiracy theories etc of how and why) that there is a REASON for it that we do not yet see. My intuitional hit regarding this was "the younger generations will need some part of the encoding contained in this virus to be protected from more or worse strains that may be coming (or) it will bring changes to our DNA that assist in the change from 3rd dimensional energies to 5th dimensional energies we've heard about for some time. 

Too busy to go deeply as you have-all of my adult children work in essential fields and I am busy being the family herbalist and caretaker. But Love, Light and Clear Sight to All of you here.  Many blessings,

Rev. kristyne

Thanks your thoughts, Kristyne. I very much agree that there is something much deeper going on. And I trust that there is a greater divine reason for it. The Divine certainly seems to like to keep life interesting for us. And how great that you are doing your part as herbalist and caretaker. I wish you all the best in surfing the waves of this intense time with love and grace.

Like yourselves, I too trust that at a cosmic level all is well, there is a reason for everything and, despite all appearances to the contrary, there are positive gifts (at all sorts of different levels) to be found within these challenges once we're able to move our perception from fear and contraction to LOVE and GROWTH.

Thank you both for your calm and practical positivity in these challenging times!

Much love to all.

I can't really decide whether this was brought about by humans or Mother Earth.

Either way, I believe we deserve far worse than this for the way we've been treating our planet. I would not be surprised at all if this was a little present from Gaia and it perhaps is throwing a wrench in the plans of the Cabal.

I can also see the flip side of the coin, where they started this whole process and are gleaning the weak from the Earth in order to gain more control of those that perceive themselves as "strong." It seems a little more than coincidental that this basically began in the most populous section of the entire Earth, which makes me linger towards this alternative.

Either way, I believe Gaia is resting as we all need to do. We need to rethink everything from step one and unlearn it all. This is an awakening. Whoever started it doesn't matter at this point. It is up to us to finish it.

Who's with me?

I'm on board envisioning a positive and transformative outcome.

I can't really entertain the fear talk at all.

They beat that horse to death (and are still beating it) on stolenhistory.org and I finally had to leave. Thousands of posts about it, but I mostly ignored it. Don't watch the news or read the papers.

I walk around my neighborhood and people are outside, working in their gardens and yards, spring cleaning.

I don't really see anything worth losing one's head about, but the already illusionary money is dead, after this. Back to basics.

Here's the best essay I've seen yet on the coronavirus by one of my very favorite author and people, Charles Eisenstein: https://www.wanttoknow.info/h/coronation

Hi Everyone,

It's been a long time since I visited. I hope you are all well. Forced unemplyment has been wonderful - I now have time to visit the gathering spot. I'm having thoughts that there may be no virus at all - perhaps just fake news, at least here in the states. Here's a video of people going around to their local hospitals to film the crowds and long lines that the media is reporting only to find empty parking lots and emergency rooms. I plan to visit my local hospital in Worcester, MA and see if the same lack of anything going on is happening there too. I'd like to hear from you all if you happen to know that you have actually seen crowded hospitals or not.

I have no doubt the virus is real. A friend in NY just lost her father to it a couple days ago. Another good friend told me that the mother of one of her best friends died in Kirkland from the virus. And yes, I suspect the fear is being overblown.

Starmonkey's picture

Pretty sure it's 5G. Akin to the scanners at the airport. Overlaying microwave frequencies.

It's killing all of the elderly, unhealthy and infirm first, and they're blaming all deaths on the C word.

This radiation is so insidious, it will get more and more people as it continues to be instituted, and those that live in cities or spend a lot of time with technology will feel the effects more and more.

Not sure what the end game is, but the economy will be the next target under some guise and, get this, it's not going to go away.

Another week, month... It's here to stay.

Our focus should be surviving whatever until the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in December. This is an early distraction to instill fear and separation, so we can't affect a positive shift.

That towers thing was also during a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction, but this time be different cause Jupiter is losing control and will be in Saturn's house.

Dissolution of systems, etc, just like in the WM. And the end of time.

So, we have that goin for us. Which is nice.

Cleverly broke it out during flu season, so all of those high temperatures and such? Just the flu.

NYC and others are putting it together, cause there's no mass hysteria at the hospitals. Some poor and homeless are disappearing again, both cause of poor health care and because nobody will miss them and they want them gone.

The atrocity of it all.

Just watch, the economy will be the next target while people are losing income and desperate.

It was probably about to collapse under its own iniquity, so they're imploding it for more control. Digital. Cashless. "They" will still have the power, and can fabricate it even more!

The clock is ticking...

Thanks, Chris. Here's one that supports the possibility of a role of 5G in the pandemic:


And here's an amazing one on the idea of spirits coming in and affecting people with schizophrenia. This is one of the most enlightening videos I've found in a long time.

Thanks, Fred.

Thinking about taking the course again.

Just directly plugged PEERS on stolenhistory.org so we'll see if anyone takes the challenge. It had been all WingMakers until then, but since some (no longer) drinking and dining establishments have buried the G-Spot on Google, I decided to be more direct.

If some of them were to take the course, they could polish up their discernment and wild speculation and accusations a might bit.

Heard the Brits were tearing (burning) down the Wall (5G towers).

Guess this is a 5G and C word thread. They're interrelated anyway. Someone on Arvari posted longer lecture by Thomas Cowan.

The big "C" destroyed stolenhistory.org just like we knew it would. Has since gone to Discord in the last few days, and I will no longer be attending. A few friends from there looking for more, but not committed enough to do transformation course. Alas. Laziness.

GETTING FUCKED is part of the game...

General Brahmachapatti has been in Ruby Hall Clinic for a couple of weeks for a minor operation.The nurses are fed up with him. He is always complaining about the food and the service, waking up the nurses in the middle of the night, demanding cups of hot chocolate, and so on.

One morning a nurse comes into his room and says, ”Good morning, general. Please take down your pyjamas and turn over – I need to take your temperature.”

”But nurse,” protests the general, ”I always have the thermometer in my mouth, not my ass. Why this change?”

”This morning,” explains the nurse, ”we need a really accurate temperature, so that the lab can make an analysis.”

The general grumpily agrees, takes down his pyjamas, turns over, and raises his bum in the air.”

Now, general,” says the nurse, making the insertion, ”this is a special thermometer and it needs to be left quite a long time to get an accurate result. So don’t move until I come back.”

In the next few hours many people come into the general’s room, but all of them just gasp and leave quickly in embarrassment. 

Finally, the general’s wife comes to visit him. She walks in and stares at him in amazement, not knowing what to say.”

What is the matter with you, woman?” thunders the general. 

”Haven’t you ever seen someone having their temperature taken before?”

”Yes, darling, I have,” stammers his wife, ”but not with a banana!”


"The measure of the spiritual capacity of the evolving soul is your faith in truth and your love for man, but the measure of your human strengh of character is your ability to resist the holding of grudges and your capacity to withstand brooding in the face of deep sorrow. Defeat is the true mirror in which you may honestly view your real self."

- Jesus (Urantia Book 156:5:17)

It is that fateful night, when Jesus has been nailed to the cross. He has been up there for about five hours, when he looks down with surprise.

"No! No!" he shouts. "Get away, get away!" 

But it does no good. Then he starts really freaking out. He screams again, "GO AWAY!" 

But it does not work. The cross starts shaking and leaning, and, as it falls over, Jesus cries, 

"Fucking beavers!"
