With millions dead and a world economy shattered, the truth about COVID 19 isn’t getting closer, no, it’s getting further away, buried by politics, shrouded in lies. 99 percent of those who write about COVID, either medically or from a security standpoint, have no qualifications in either arena.

Moreover, those few that are qualified either lie or, if “the truth is out there,” it isn’t accepted, suppressed by the press, drowned in “chaff” or simply undiscernible by those of lesser capability. But then it isn’t just COVID 19.

First, the process should be explained. By “process,” I mean the methods real or “supposed” intelligence and security experts use to discern “probability of fact” for those supposedly “entrusted” with the secret and special knowledge that constitutes “truth.”

You see, “truth” isn’t just relative, its dangerous. It also varies from “the narrative” in almost every case where the best analogous references best come from Matrix films.

Now we are going to use one of those dangerous analogies. How many remember 9/11 and the “Harley guy.” Moments after the first tower crashed on 9/11, an individual, later identified as an employee of Fox News, wearing a Harley Davidson t shirt, identified what he deemed the cause of the building collapses, pancaking caused by massive fires and structural weakening.

Years since, a virtual army of architects and engineers have disputed the “Harley guy” stating that his analysis, with no qualifications, but one later published as “fact” was in fact scientifically impossible and literally laughable.

What one who works in intelligence would call this is “revealing the narrative.” Such “narratives” are standard in any military operation as part of “cover and deception,” an integral part of every move, be it a fake gas attack or the D-Day invasion of France in 1944.

For COVID 19, it was the story of “bat soup.” Within hours of China’s COVID 19 outbreak being reported, a fake narrative hit every media organization in the world at the same time. An unnamed source cited the sale of infected bats, sold as soup to customers including the US military team at the Wuhan Games in October 2019 (369 members strong, finishing in 38th place).

Two more issues were made public, one that a secret lab may have infected the bat with a manmade virus and that the Chinese themselves were a flawed people for serving foods that were so alien and potentially disgusting, by Western standards.

That narrative, or at least part of it, stands today just as the Harley guy’s 9/11 pancake theory stands.

Now we will address the nature of “process” and how it applies to finding either a true version of the “truth,” if one can excuse such a confusing reference, or admitting that the truth may not be out there at all.

Sometimes “truth” simply doesn’t exist.

My “day job” is as an intelligence briefer, or at least part of it is. I head a team that includes a top nuclear weapons scientist with identifiable credentials at the DOE and IAEA.

The team includes a former Deputy Director of Homeland Security at the US, two high ranking intelligence officials from the US and Russia, a former high-level intelligence briefer for the US Senate and two former FBI officials. It also includes one of the leaders of the European Space Agency and a top WHO official as well, both longtime personal friends.

There are others we can’t mention so easily.

I run briefings, generally to deemed acceptable entities, not banned by the US, including military intelligence officials and political leaders.

Almost nothing that comes out in such a briefing “jibes” with what the press reports. Additionally, everyone in the room accepts as matter of fact that what the public is told is entirely fabricated.

For material to be introduced, it has to pass experts. Let’s say we were talking about the seizure by the Turkish government of Californium, a nuclear material that, in 2019, had fallen into the hands of a group supplying terrorists.

The internet says a “Californium bomb” is a hoax or “pipe dream.” Californium can support a chain reaction with a critical mass that is extremely small, insanely small and put out almost no radiation.

So, why were terrorists, who aren’t all totally stupid, buying $70 million in supposedly “hoax” bomb material?

In order to discuss this intelligently, a team member, in this case a nuclear physicist with weapons experience would address the following questions:

  • Can Californium really make a bomb?
  • How big a bomb?
  • Does a terror group have the capability of creating this weapon?
  • If deployed, how can we identify it and discern its signature from a “fertilizer explosion” or exploding weapons storage facility?
  • How can one defend against such a threat?
  • How can we identify an organization seeking materials to create such as weapon, if such a weapon is indeed a possibility?

This same process applies to COVID 19.

This same process applies, and did apply, to 9/11, yielding a secondary classified finding of demolition by fission or fission/fusion device.

These are just a very few of such subjects. Now imagine that everything that happens has another side, one rarely but occasionally guessed at by internet conspiracy “junkies.”

  • Mass shootings
  • Violence during demonstrations
  • Hacking attacks
  • Allegation of election interference
  • Deaths of prominent figures
  • Large scale tragic events
  • Inexplicable political and social trends

In many cases, not every case, an alternative theory is analyzed carefully and often accepted as “slam dunk” or “probable.” However, this information and the processes used to discern same are not just classified, even discussing them is generally forbidden, no matter how roundabout and obscure the references are.

Worse still, one might accept that the perpetrators of wrongdoing in many if not most or almost all such instances, as part of their “process” began with a fake narrative and assets that could push that narrative forward in the press, in social media and even through organizations at the UN and other international bodies.

This capability, which we know exists, no questions there, has made potential perpetrators, often nation states of quasi-state player intelligence organizations, quite brazen.

Because of this, a secondary process is always applied in every event, that is discerning who benefits and does the capability exist to not only stage such an event but control the narrative as well.

There are never such questions as:

  • Why would they do something so terrible?
  • Aren’t they worried about being caught?

Try bringing that up in a room full of military leaders and the laughter might deafen you.

  1. “Autosurveillance marks the penetration of information technology within the body and the psyche of the individual subject: it implies a diffusion of computers on a generalized scale and a kind of passive replication of their programs by the individual, most visibly in the areas of education and medicine” Quote from Jacques Attalis’ book Noise.

    “Learned helplessness occurs when an animal is repeatedly subjected to an aversive stimulus that it cannot escape. Eventually, the animal will stop trying to avoid the stimulus and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Even when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness will prevent any action”. Verywellmind website.

    “The tale goes that in the 16th century, the renowned Rabbi Löw, also known as the Maharal of Prague, was seeking a way to protect the local Je wish people from pogroms and the whim of unpredictable rulers up at Prague Castle. Endowed with the power to transform the four elements into living things, he moulded a superhuman from the mud of the Vltava – the Golem”. theculturetrip website.

  2. Never let a crisis (created; False Flag,-‘9/11’, Bio- ‘COVID-19’ Weapon?) go to waste, but use them for your, (The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion-The PIGS), eventual goal, that of Orwellian ‘Animal Farm’, herding the Masses there, by all/any opportunities, created or otherwise, that will arise for OUR benefit! F-ck the Masses of Humanity, they are only GOYIM! We, the Chosen Few, are the Drivers in the ‘Seat of our Yahweh’, with Him on our side, there is no “Crime Against Humanity” that Yahweh can’t justify against anyone! SIEG HEIL Zionism! SIEG Heil YAHWEH!

  3. Let’s face it; crime does pay, and handsomely (ask any oligarch), and virtue had better be it’s own reward because there is no other. I’ve come to believe that what many of us here would call “evil” is so universal, so omnipresent that it’s practitioners don’t even bother to distinguish it from any hypothetical other quality. “Good” is relative; a localized and temporary diminution of the background, sort of like the microscopic ice cryatals that in theory can form for an instant in a glass of water.
    Too bleak ? well, always remember that no matter how bad things may seem, as long as you’re alive they can always get worse. ( i was raised catholic; it didn’t take but i still carry the scars)

  4. I would add a third question: Why do “they” bother to control the narrative, stage false flags, etc ? What do they fear might happen if we-the-sheeple got ahold of some red pills? For all of my life, it seems, the power behind the thrones has done as it damn well pleased with only a whine of protest at most – i’m thinking Viet Nam, which only led to an amping up of propaganda and tightening of the screws. I believe 911 was a waste of time; they could have just attacked as they pleased without excuses or explanation; does anyone think the cowed, dumbed down populace will ever even wake up much less unite in revolt no matter the provocation ?
    Secrecy allows the keepers to feel superior – as with that childish “i know something you don’t know” grade school sing-song. Give tours of Area 51; reveal the truth about our tail-wagging-the-dog relationship with Israel; i’ll bet nothing would change.
    In real terms secrecy is an adjunct of war; the US gov’t and other secret keepers seem to be at war with the population at large.

  5. The Sars Cov-2 virus has never yet actually been identified as the cause. In fact, it has never even been properly isolated, purified, amplified and determined to be even a virus. Koch’s Postulate, by which we have always determined and identified any new virus, was not at all satisfied in the testing of the virus. Many doctors are now of the opinion that the supposed virus is actually Exosomes, which have an almost identical structure, when seen under an electron microscope. To purposefully inject Chimpanzee Adenoviral RNA into our human cells (as in the Astra-Zeneca Oxford vaccine), or RNA-carrying Lipid Nanoparticles into our human cell cytoplasm is playing with fire and extremely dangerous. Absence of 3-year, 5-year and 10-year safety data is quite concerning. And all this risky experimentation on living humans over a “virus” that has as yet, not been properly identified.

    • Tho definitely not an “anti vaxxer”, as one who had a near fatal reaction to the supposedly safe swine flu vaccine, i’m experiencing hesitancy with this one, also heavily hyped.. Too many suspicious circumstances surrounding this supposedly accidental pandemic, then the rush to roll out this new and worriesome mRNA technology, the naked fear-mongering about new ( -ly released ?) variants…
      I feel like i’m playing Russian roulette with two pistols; one labeled “the disease” the other “the cure” , with no way of knowing how many bullets are in either. I suspect many fellow hesitaters are in the same boat.

  6. Mark Walsh was the Fox News employee wearing a Harley Davidson t-shirt who supposedly saw planes flying at full speed, crashing into the twin towers, and who just happened to coin the term, Ground Zero. Also, pictures of the 19 Arabs who supposedly hijacked the planes were all over the MSM within hours of the attacks, way before any evidence-based investigation could possibly have been done. Wouldn’t any thinking person have noticed this? Wouldn’t any thinking person have noticed that Mark Walsh was almost giddy as he described the twin towers pancaking before his eyes? Future historians will marvel at our naivety.

    • Its easy to dupe people when they’re in psychological trauma, and they still think the tell-o-vision is their truth-telling patriotic friend.
      Walsh had ALL the hallmarks of being extremely connected, once one knows what to look for.

    • tommy: Doesn’t it give you a warm comfy feeling to be living in The Future where any random man in the street is so intelligent, so well versed in Science & Engineering as to be able to instantly explain an event that in an earlier, benighted age might have required a long, tedious investigation ?
      I feel like i’m living in an H.G. Wells scientifiction novel…

    • Elvin was right, we were all in a state of shock as we watched those buildings come down, ready to believe anything we were told by our illustrious MSM. Yes, hindsight is always 20/20, but somehow the lessons of 20 years ago have not moved the official narrative of 9/11 one iota. Just now we are finally pulling some troops out of Afghanistan. Even now we continue to justify the 9/11 wars and all the murder and mayhem that came with them. It’s clear that these wars were never about nation-building, just nation-destroying, all for Israel.

  7. I may not be bright enough to get it,(it could have been there and I missed it) but I thought we were going to get the real truth behind Covid19.
    Maybe it doesn’t exit.

  8. “Deaths of prominent figures”
    Why somebody in DC wanted to Haiti president dead and for what ??

  9. If you are the dog catcher, your dog is the safest. We did not suddenly become smart, but we did go from horses to space ships in just under a hundred years. This is one of the most highly recognizable traits in the precessional pantheon. We will once again, find our humanity when we must rectify our capacity with integrity. Tracking the material, is a pursuit we are already engaged in and will only become more efficient at it. So, if the world had the internet and cars 26,000 years ago, yes, it could have all gotten cleaned up. The age of the robot (machines), is not for another 2,000 years or so, and the only way we do not repeat, is to focus on integrity, instead of capacity. Currently our capacity far exceeds our integrity. We suck at it. So, one theory is , we made sure to leave behind some stuff. or the machines did….. The biggest dogma on the planet is , what day it is.

    • For about a hundred bucks, an illiterate homeless person can get a metal detector and find gold and other things at the beach. We have ground penetrating radar that can find and count bodies in mass graves quite easily. Nuclear material can be tracked by a satellite. Anyone with the internet can look at (almost) anyone else’s back yard. Experts can locate almost any material underground anywhere on earth. We will continue this frenzy of self exploration well beyond the capability to completely erase all traces of technology or industry from the face of the earth, if we choose to. Or the machines choose to. This includes bone and fork or spoon or anything. Time, also can be examined to the point where any person can be located at any time anywhere. Without tools, using basic information.

    • The whole earth Roomba , is the last stop gap measure to be deployed if it all goes sideways.
      We have been building it for a while now. The sense of power humanity has in its dominance, is pure delusion.
