Remember when Anthony Fauci and other government paid medical “professionals” said that Americans needed to mask up and stay home for two weeks to “flatten the curve” on the covid pandemic? Remember when they came back two weeks later and said they needed another couple of weeks? Remember how they backed off of the lockdowns a little and then came right back with demands for more? Remember in 2019 when people weren’t cowering in their homes and behind masks over a virus with an average IFR (Infection Fatality Rate) of only 0.27%? Remember that?
At the very beginning of the pandemic response I and many others in the alternative media warned that the mandates and lockdowns were never going to end; they are meant to go on forever. I predicted this based on statements made by the very globalists and institutions scripting covid response policy for national governments. In my article ‘Waves Of Mutilation: Medical Tyranny And The Cashless Society’ published in April of 2020, I outlined comments by globalist Gideon Lichfield from MIT built on white papers published by the Imperial College of London. In the article titled ‘We’re Not Going Back To Normal’ he describes the future of the world under covid medical tyranny:
“To stop coronavirus we will need to radically change almost everything we do: how we work, exercise, socialize, shop, manage our health, educate our kids, take care of family members.
We all want things to go back to normal quickly. But what most of us have probably not yet realized—yet will soon—is that things won’t go back to normal after a few weeks, or even a few months. Some things never will.”
“As long as someone in the world has the virus, breakouts can and will keep recurring without stringent controls to contain them. In a report yesterday researchers at Imperial College London proposed a way of doing this: impose more extreme social distancing measures every time admissions to intensive care units (ICUs) start to spike, and relax them each time admissions fall…”
“Ultimately, however, I predict that we’ll restore the ability to socialize safely by developing more sophisticated ways to identify who is a disease risk and who isn’t, and discriminating—legally—against those who are.
…one can imagine a world in which, to get on a flight, perhaps you’ll have to be signed up to a service that tracks your movements via your phone. The airline wouldn’t be able to see where you’d gone, but it would get an alert if you’d been close to known infected people or disease hot spots. There’d be similar requirements at the entrance to large venues, government buildings, or public transport hubs. There would be temperature scanners everywhere, and your workplace might demand you wear a monitor that tracks your temperature or other vital signs. Where nightclubs ask for proof of age, in future they might ask for proof of immunity—an identity card or some kind of digital verification via your phone, showing you’ve already recovered from or been vaccinated against the latest virus strains.”
Two years later (instead of two weeks), the covid farce continues. By farce I mean that the virus is not a health threat to the vast majority of the public, but governments and the media continue to fear monger over it’s existence while trying to force people to accept experimental vaccines with no long term testing to prove they are safe. In almost any country where people have been mostly disarmed or any country with minimal chance of a riot, the covid totalitarians are racing to grab every ounce of power they can before the population realizes what is happening.
I could go on and on outlining the mountain of scientific facts and evidence that completely debunk the panic over covid, but I have already done this in several articles. I could talk about the fact that 99.7% or more of people are in no danger from covid death and only a tiny percentage of those hospitalized by covid have longer term health side effects. I could mention the fact that countries with high vaccination rates like Israel or Ireland also have the highest infection rates and numerous deaths of fully vaccinated people. I could also mention that natural immunity has been proven in studies in majority vaxxed countries to be superior in every way to vaccination. The authoritarians do not want to hear it.
In New Zealand and Australia, once supposed bastions of western democracy and freedom, citizens are now locked down on the whims of bureaucrats at the first sign of a positive PCR test. I have been saying for months that if you want to see the future that the establishment intends for Americans, just take a look at countries like Australia where they are actually building covid prison camps operated by the military. People have even been arrested trying to escape these compounds. No, this is not conspiracy theory, this is fact.
In these camps you are under the complete control of the government. Much like any prison, they feed you when they want to feed you, they restrict your movements, they isolate you from friends and family, etc. Your time in the camps can even be “extended” by the administrators without oversight if they determine you have “misbehaved.” That’s right, it’s not about how infectious you are, it’s not about science, it’s about how submissive you are.
And really, that is all that the covid pandemic response has ever been about.
Look at a nation like Austria, which has 65% vaccination and ever increasing infection rates. They decided that unvaxxed people are to blame, so they ordered anyone without proof of vaccination to submit to lockdowns. After that, their infections and deaths spiked even more. So, instead of admitting the obvious and logical conclusion (that the vaccines don’t work, or at the very least, that lockdowns don’t work), they ordered a lockdown for EVERYONE. Why? To hide the fact that the unvaxxed are not the problem.
To be clear, the initial spike that prompted the lockdowns in Austria amounted to around 300 deaths, the vast majority of them among the elderly. In Austria, nursing home patients make up around 36% of all covid deaths. To be clear, they are eliminating the freedoms of 9 million people and strangling their economy over a spike of 300 deaths. People die every day in large numbers from a host of transmissible diseases. This is a fact of life, it is not something to be used as a political and social weapon.
To take things a step further, Austria is also now threatening a compulsory vaccination bill that allows fines and prison for the unvaxxed. Vaccination status will be determined by the government and booster shots could be required at any time. Just because you are fully vaccinated now does not mean you will be considered fully vaccinated tomorrow. It will never end.
The data shows that vaccination does little to nothing to slow actual infection rates or deaths; there were more covid deaths in 2021 than in 2020 despite the proliferation of the vaccines this year. That is to say, vaccinations were introduced this year and yet there were more covid deaths than last year. Isn’t that strange?
The mainstream media claims this is now a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.” I guess they should tell that to the many thousands of fully vaccinated people infected and hundreds dying in states like Massachusetts where they actually track breakthrough cases. Of course, the media still sings the praises of the vaccines despite these little hiccups.
If the vaccines actually worked, then there would be no need for compulsory vaccinations. The people who are vaxxed would be protected and the people who are unvaxxed assume the individual risks. The covid cult doesn’t seem to grasp the logic here – Either the vaccines are effective and there is no need to make them mandatory, or they are not effective, which means making them mandatory is pointless.
But again, logic and science are not the point – Control is the point. It’s a perpetual rationale for infinite control. It will never end.
The reality is that the covid agenda has not been all that effective if we look at the big picture. If the goal is 100% vaccination and ongoing vax passport controls using regular boosters as a dominance mechanism for the long term (medical tyranny), then so far the plan has failed. Some countries have fallen into the long covid winter, but many others have not. Nearly every conservative state in the US is in full defiance of the mandates and federal courts have blocked Joe Biden’s attempts to circumvent the constitution. If red states in America hold out, this gives hope to others. So, what’s left for the establishment power mongers to do?
That’s easy…they just do more of the same.
Enter the Omicron variant of covid, something we “conspiracy theorists” have been warning about for the past two years. This is the beauty of the pandemic narrative when it comes to building a global authoritarian regime; viruses are always changing and new viruses can even be engineered if needed. Therefore, there is always a new threat to frighten the public and always a new reason to lock them up in their homes or demand they give up more of their freedoms. It is an endless vampiric cycle that slowly drains the liberty from a population.
Set aside the fact that the doctors that discovered Omicron in South Africa have labeled it a mild variation of covid and not a significant threat to the public. This makes perfect sense. In the vast majority of pandemic scenarios viruses tend to evolve into slightly more infectious but much less deadly versions of the original. But that’s not stopping the media and government scientists from screeching bloody murder about Omicron and even suggesting that this time covid “might” evolve to become more deadly rather than less.
This must be done. They have nothing left and if they lose out on covid they lose out on one of the best opportunities they have ever had for centralized control of nearly every individual on Earth.
The fear over covid is waning. Hundreds of millions of people are not willing to give up their freedoms over a hyped and farcical pandemic with a 0.27% IFR. Many people who are vaccinated are fighting the mandates alongside the unvaxxed. Most of us aren’t obese. Most of us aren’t 80 years old and in a nursing home. Most of us don’t have preexisting conditions. These are all factors that make up the majority of covid deaths. Many of us already had covid and easily survived it, which means we have natural immunity that is 13-27 times more effective at stopping future infections than the vaccines. Without more hype and more variants the party for the globalists stops, and they don’t like that idea at all.
If the public is allowed to pull their heads out of the haze of propaganda for a moment and regain their bearings, they might realize they have been made the target of a massive terror campaign. They might get angry. They might demand investigations. They might even demand that some globalist heads roll. So, get ready for Omicron to remain in the headlines for months to come, and then the next mutation and the next mutation and the mutation after that. The globalists and political opportunists will keep going with the theater until they get what they want, or until they are removed from the equation entirely. It will never end, unless they end.

I believe, in years to come, covid will be the “cause” for the great economic collapse. Can’t have people understanding that all fiat currencies collapse on their on in due time. If people understand fiat currencies then how can the elite bankers grab control again.
You sound less optimistic than in previous posts, Brandon. Do you still feel the globalists will fail? I guess I’m wanting to hear some upbeat news: here in Switzerland the f*cking sheep just voted by 62% to continue our insane Covid laws till…2032!
Optimism is the wrong term to use. I KNOW that the globalists will lose in the long run. That doesn’t mean it won’t be a terrible struggle in the meantime.
As Malcolm Muggeridge used to say, “I am a short term pessimist but a long term optimist”.
Thank you so much
There is a thing like what you said before. It is from WEF.
You gotta love how they just put it out there like an admission of intent….
Once again, thank you for staying on this… I don’t post much but I do follow to stay informed
and knowledgeable on the big picture. You have been forthright and not prone to hype and fearporn. For that and your ability to investigate what is very hard for the average person to assess from the confusing miasma of information put out by msm & medical establishment
make me a dedicated reader.
I might be wrong but I believe the endgame is massive depopulation in some sort of controlled fashion (attempted), due to resource depletion and a failing economic situation
globally. But such a controlled demolition is only possible if subject populations are kept from knowing about it. So what you are doing is INvaluable.
You are correct about depopulation plus they are bringing in a world communist government using the coming covid pass.
More accurately it is Corporatism, control by the big transnational Corporations, also known as Fascism. This is the sibling rival of Communism, but both ideologies are of the extreme left, created for the same purpose, to establish Statism, i.e. a collectivist society, with all authority centred in the State. The rivalry between the two is a good example of the Hegelian dialectic in operation.
Has anyone read Rockefeller’s Operation Lockstep from about 2010? Just one of many variations on the same theme. It starts with a plandemic which is not that deadly, but you start the fear porn to create fear in the Sheep, that they will all die without a life saving vaccine. The vaccine ends up being an engineered bioweapon death shot and kills a majority of the population. The Deep State now has a more manageable number of people to control under a NWO system. Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum calls it the Great Reset. I guess calling the NWO the Great Reset sounds more benign.
Perhaps for some, but the term has come to mean Sinsiter Intent for most people who are actually paying attention.
Rcmt: They have never been shy about telling us what they are up to: it’s the Great Reset, pure and simple. And the GR has three aims: depopulation, destroying the current economic system and digitalized slavery of the human race. The “vaccine” feeds very well into all three of these aims.
Thank you for another great article, Brandon. As an expat currently living in Europe, I cannot believe the level of constant fear being promoted by the media and pushing for more government control and mandatory vaccinations. Protests in France, Italy, Austria and a few other EU nations are hardly ever covered by the traditional media outlets. I am shocked with the number of people willing to surrender their freedoms to the government and lacking the awareness that they will never be restored. I would like to be more optimistic but, as of now, unless something drastically changes and soon, Europe will fall to the Globalists.
Global skeptic: Agreed. I’m hear in Switzerland. As I mentioned to Brandon above, the Swiss just voted by 62% to extend the draconian and completely open ended anti-China flu measures here to 2032. I was involved in the “Nein!” campaign and have never seen such aggression and nastiness in a referendum. There is some serious brainwashing and mass psychosis going on here. I fear that only massed deaths will convince these zombies. And even then, they will blame the unjabbed. Here’s hoping I’m wrong.
Spot on, only one thing to add – some of those studies that showed a 0.27 IFR also ended up showing “corrected to 0.23” so even lower. The flu has a 0.1 IFR “on average” (worse flu seasons are obviously higher), so, That’s about 2.3 times as deadly as the flu. Meaning that according to their own numbers, covid is essentially just a bad flu.
There are always mitigating circumstances in statistics so they will create a range, that is why the median (average) is listed at 0.27%. But yes, it would be more accurate to say between 0.23% and 0.27%.
Can we also say that the data is only based on those who pursue a test. If all the people with minimal to no symptoms who were never sick enough to get tested were factored In as well, it would be diluted down exponentially. CDC says that for every one positive they estimate 2.1 people also have had it.
IFR also factors in asymptomatic cases, which is around 30%-40% of all infections.
Well with that, since we truly don’t know how many have had the disease and it is likely far larger than even estimated, I would still posit that that IFR is still on the higher side of where it should be. No fault to anyone calculating it. They use what they have and what they can reliably estimate.
Agreed. There have indeed been a number of deaths that can be directly attributed to covid and covid symptoms, but nowhere near enough to warrant the utter panic that the media and governments are trying to promote. Even the government’s own numbers on IFR show that covid is a non-issue for 99.7% of all people.
“The globalists and political opportunists will keep going with the theater until they get what they want, or until they are removed from the equation entirely. It will never end, unless they end.”
Thank you 4 this article. Keep up the good work, Mr. Smith!
V@xxed induced ADE will be blamed on the Unv@accinated continuing to perpetuate this insanity.
Hold the line, we will prevail!
It’s going to be a cold, hard winter – and not just in meteorological terms. What we need to do is stay strong until Spring and see what happens.
The one Minnesotan with omicron reportedly had the booster shot per the Minnesota channel 5 morning news.
If they had the booster that would lead me to believe they were vaxed before getting the booster. So how is from the unvaxed?
They found the perfect metaphor for control, press the panic button – the FAKE virus. The first time showed it worked and can keep on working (keep pressing that panic button). When the sirens go off and the red lights keep flashing you can do anything you want and they have.
They almost can suspend your Constitution under these conditions, if you think about it. Maybe Onmigone can do it, they think?
Imagine that (they think) COMPLETE control. They can rape and steal all they want. 😉
The death bloom is already starting (to be passed off for any reason other than the shots). If not one more of us receive the shots, they have achieved a dramatic, long-term, population reduction already. If they successfully inject children, birthrates in the next generation will be catastrophically low. If I remember my reading from the revelation of John: the last days prior to the Lord’s return contain two events that reduce the Earth’s population by a third. One is seemingly some form of astro-catastrophism/cataclysm but the other was war/famine/PESTILENCE…..all of which could be precipitated deliberately by a global oligarchy.
If the globalists don’t get a large majority of Americans to embrace tyranny, already accomplished in places like Australia, Canada, Austria, Italy, New Zealand etc., I expect they’ve already set up the chess board for a more violent and extreme means to eliminate opposition. There are many ways this can be accomplished.
One potential example: As Americans refuse authoritarian dictates and new normals, the Biden cabal continues to push hard against strategic Russian and Chinese interests. Regardless of the reasons and justifications given by the lying government and the lying media (e.g. Taiwan and Ukraine), another possibility is that all involved parties are collaborating to some extent. If necessary, they can pull the war card. In that scenario, outright war between superpowers might include a pre-ordained outcome that decimates America as we still know it while achieving goals of the great reset. American power eliminates half the Chinese population, and Chinese missiles eliminate half the US population. Nuclear, biological, conventional etc. Then, the freshly polished totalitarians in Canada and Europe come to our “rescue”. Just as WWII granted Eastern Europe to the Soviets and most of the rest of the world to the Anglo-Americans. These strategies have been highly effective in the past and are easy to replicate when the people are completely unaware of them.
They will lose in the long term, there’s nothing they can do to change that. The only way for them to succeed was to convince the vast majority of the population to take their side and support the Reset; they don’t have that majority, so they will try to create as much chaos as possible. The reason they have avoided such scenarios so far is because they become highly vulnerable during overt collapse. They know the risk on their side is extreme.
They made a strategic error – the whole plan relied on one lynch pin – the virus had to be very deadly. It quickly became less deadly and so now they’ve had to just go with it.
They should have had a more controllable, multivariate lynch pin. Bad move.
Agreed, Brandon. Hence the crazy pushes in places like Australia and Austria to lock up unvaxxed people. They have to eliminate the control group or they lose. Everyday we stay unjabbed brings them closer to the shadow of the noose.
Great article Brandon. One thing that puzzles me is that the stock market is almost completely unperturbed by this. You would think that the smartest minds in the world would be selling like crazy as this scenario unfolds.
The stock market only cares about one thing – Federal Reserve stimulus. When that stops, stocks will collapse.
Actually, I read recently that major shareholders (insiders considered to be “smart money”) of TSLA, MSFT, AMZN and many others are selling at an unprecedented rate. Insider sales are considered to be leading indicators so the fact they are at record levels doesn’t bode well at all for the stock market which, as Brandon is absolutely correct in pointing out, is exclusively supported by Federal Reserve Interventions now for quite some time. That may continue indefinitely since it would be suicide for them to stop on purpose however it’s looking like the funny money they keep printing isn’t working very well any more and it’s only a matter of time before the “support” dollars they keep printing simply don’t work.
A thing I’ve found more puzzling, Nick, is the resignation of so many of the top psychopaths: Dorsey at Twatter, Schellenberg in Austria (okay, he was only temporary, but since when has that ever stopped globalists?), Harris’s comms team leaders, etc. These people are supposed to be winning.
Warren Buffet has accumulated a huge cash pile. Bill Gates is selling far more stocks than he is buying. Elon Musk is selling. Insiders are selling a record amount of stock. The smart money is selling.
This has been the longest 2 weeks that I have ever had to endure.
Oroville, California recently seceded from state control over the mandates and climate hogwash (not really enforceable but a strong statement.) As the fear-mongering increases over the virus would individual cities and counties succeeding from government control to escape mandates later joining together to form larger unions be the catalyst for the US collapse or have the globalists already taken this into consideration and are prepared to deal with it?
I think America is our main hope, John, because large swathes of Red America will simply ignore Biden while the blue states wither on the vine. I can’t see how the “USA” will stay together. There will be some kind of secession into sane areas and democrat-run areas. I doubt that event will be peaceful but what’s the alternative?
Bill Gates Charged with Murder for COVID-19 Vaccine Death in India’s High Court – Death Penalty Sought
Yeah, like they’re gonna track him down, arrest him and extradite him? It’s meaningless symbolism.
No, just jab him till he is dead, i don’t care who does jabbing.
For decades only hurricanes had names, then a few years ago they started naming winter storms.
Now the flu has a name it have have names from now on because it is an effective tool at scaring the people.
Looks like they’ve blundered to me. Who wants to report a variant now when you will be ostracized, and then banned from commerce with other countries for being honest? Better to stay silent and let the variant run wild.
The variant isn’t deadly. The purpose of it is to cause fear. If they just let it run wild it wouldn’t have the effect they want – fear.
One of the private schools here that I know of has just closed down “indefinitely” because a student came back from a visit to SA and tested “positive”. The parents who may enormous fees for the privilege of sending their kiddos there see absolutely no problem with losing out on a lot of education over the coming months.
Anyone see this? I just started reading the article and haven’t looked at any of the comments to see if this was posted,so posting just in case!
With all the Covid distraction, we haven’t had an article from you in quite some time on the major financial status. With Fed tapering accelerating, it now being said that there is more money leaving mutual funds than going in, “insiders” selling off assets at a higher rate than ever before, I’d appreciate some upydated thoughts from you on it all. Thanks
Watch for the next article coming out tomorrow.
The IMF just gave an economic collapse warning Thursday. They do like to tell us before the start pulling on the rug!
I can picture an infectious varient with mild symptoms as being a positive thing to provide natural herd immunity to the general population.
It occurs to me that the vax-ports and social monitoring of everyone has a longer term purpose: Climate tyranny. The news I’m seeing is hinting at using a “carbon profile” for all humans which will monitor their “carbon footprint” and be used to restrict travel, meat consumption and other activities. Of course the elite will exempt themselves by ignoring the rules or buying “carbon credits” that normal’s won’t have access to. I’m guessing that the immediacy is being pushed using the scary “threat” of covid/variants until enough compliant businesses have implemented the controls. Then they will segue into Climate Emergency Measures (CME’s). What do you think about that Brandon?
The vax passes are the trial runs for all encompassing digital passes that control everything we do. Rather like Bitcoin is a trial run for a central digital currency. Anything that furthers that end, whether vaxxes or “climate change” or “white supremacist terrorism” will be used
I remember very well about your very good article: ‘Waves Of Mutilation: Medical Tyranny And The Cashless Society’.
I think 2022 will be a decisive year for globalists,mainly because they don’t have many tools left and time to realize with “success” their grim Reset.
Don’t forget, that cabal is obsessed with numerology and the occult. Number 2, for them, may be very relevant in order to achieve some goals (like kill US Dollar?).
The first half of 2022 promises to be rich in major crisis events – real or perceived as such.
For example: A Cyber pandemy or a major conflict in MidEast, China Sea or close Russian border..

“a virus with an average IFR (Infection Fatality Rate) of only 0.27%”
Funny how in Peru the overall mortality rate from covid (over the whole population, not over infected people) is 0.6%, in Bulgaria is 0.41% and in Hungary 0.37%. So yeah, when you talk about a virus with 0.27% IFR, I guess you must be talking about a different virus from SARS-Cov-II, or you are taking your “average” from a population in a good situation, as opposed to a more relevant question, that is, what’s the average IFR when people pretend the virus can’t be very dangerous and let hospitals be overwhelmed? Which is like taking your average of fire damage costs by removing any instance of houses burned down in major forest fires.
IFR measures the percentage of people at risk from the virus at any given time. If you have a running tally of covid for years then yes, it’s going to eventually surpass 0.27% of the total population because each year there is a new group of people entering into that danger zone of the 0.27%. You do realize that your 0.6% number is not an accurate estimation of actual risk, right? What’s funny is how much that IFR stat annoys the disinfo agents – They HATE when I talk about it because they can’t argue against it without lying or trying to throw out a less accurate stat like CFR. They don’t like the public hearing the facts on the covid death rate and how truly small it is. The average comes from over two dozen studies from countries around the world, not just first world countries or the US. Also, there is not a single study that shows a median death rate of covid at 0.6% without discounting asymptomatic cases OR if they have an inordinately large percentage of multiple long term chronic illnesses and elderly, which is the case in Peru with around 40% of the population reporting chronic preexisting conditions. You are scraping the bottom of the barrel if your best argument is that the worst possible demographic conditions in a third world country only produces a death rate of 0.6% (which averages to 0.3% at risk per year) over the course of two full years. What other virus do we keep a running tally for, by the way? Millions die every year from the flu and Pneumonia and if we kept a running tally for multiple years the number of deaths would also appear daunting.
If you have a problem with the 0.27% stat then you should talk to the numerous doctors and virologists that made the determination, not me. The average IFR for covid is also the same regardless of the level of mandates and lockdowns, and you obviously do not understand how IFR is calculated. No hospitals have been overwhelmed anywhere except perhaps China at the very beginning of the pandemic. The federal government’s own stats on hospital ICU beds show that the worst it ever got only 13%-16% of hospital beds were taken by covid patients, and that was usually in leftist cities where lockdowns were the most stringent. Your house fire comparison is moronic and makes no sense; no one has removed any covid data from IFR calculation. In fact, IFR is more accurate than the majority of calculations because it takes MORE data into account, including asymptomatic cases. The fact remains that covid’s median IFR is TINY and not at all worth the fear and hype that the government and media have generated around it. I’m certainly not going to give up my freedoms just so 0.27% of the population can feel a little safer. Follow the science, Doly, even if it disagrees with your biased misconceptions. If you refuse to acknowledge the facts then it can only mean you have an agenda.
