A Contrarian View on the ‘China’ Virus – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on July 12, 2021

One cannot serve God and mammon. In the present struggle for men’s souls, mammon is clearly winning, and Covid has given him the weapon with which to clinch his victory. He is assisted in his work by those Lenin described as “useful idiots.”

By Paul Hein

The Bug’s Birth

There are certain news commentators who seem determined to have us believe that the Covid virus (if it exists!) is of Chinese origin. They seem obsessed with this idea even referring to the virus as the “Chinese virus” or the “Wuhan virus.” Perhaps they protest too much! Maybe the virus is of U.S. origin!

I have no scientific basis for this belief—nor any other basis. Rather, it is based upon the common presumption that if A consistently accuses B of being a thief, may A himself is the wrongdoer. Oddly, those most vehement in asserting the Chinese origin of the virus are fond of telling us that the Democrats accuse the Republicans of what they—the Dems—are guilty of. Maybe the U.S. is using the same tactic.

Why would the Chinese invent this virus? If it was created as a weapon, it is a pathetic one, with a mortality rate of less than one percent among its “victims.” There already exist many much more dangerous organisms with which to wage germ warfare than Covid-19. And so far as I know, it’s impossible to train a germ to infect only your enemies, and not your friends. Attacking your enemies with germs is a dangerous, risky, business.

Cui bono?

So let us think the unthinkable: maybe the U.S. is the creator of the virus (if it exists!) Using the virus as an excuse, our Rulers have had us wear masks,( greatly increasing our carbon dioxide intake, while reducing oxygen intake)  keep six feet from one another (not 5.7 feet, or 6.8 feet) and quarantine ourselves (although through history it was the sick who were quarantined, not the healthy). Did the Rulers know these measures were of little, if any, benefit? Of course they did, being malign, not stupid. There were no such restrictions during the swine flu, or the bird flu. So why now?

The time is ripe for the Resest, the arrival of Soviet America. The Rulers have satisfied themselves that the people will obey orders, even if given by those without authority to do so. They will even enthusiastically accept a “vaccine” of mRNA—a genetic modifier— that will do far more harm than good. Government doles keep thousands out of work, because it’s silly to work when you’d earn less than you get on the dole. Creating dependency on government is a program near and dear to the hearts of the Rulers. The ultimate aim is grandiose: the eradication of Western Civilization, especially Christianity. A profound revolution is underway right before our eyes, and many do not see it. Sadly, many religious leaders are complacent about this. Might they be recipients of government benefits? Certainly the Catholic bishops are, closing churches on the order of some bureaucrat, without demur while accepting millions from the Rulers for the Church’s social programs.

One cannot serve God and mammon. In the present struggle for men’s souls, mammon is clearly winning, and Covid has given him the weapon with which to clinch his victory. He is assisted in his work by those Lenin described as “useful idiots.”

What of that remnant who resist orders from the mayor or governor and questions the veracity of the Rulers? Ah, for that there is war. In wartime we must all work together, shoulder to the wheel, united for a common cause—the defeat of a deadly enemy. We’re being indoctrinated to regard China as that enemy, and as the Covid restrictions show, we’ll believe what we’re told. And war puts a lot of people to work. War never fails to satisfy the needs of the Rulers. It’s waiting in the wings now, to be brought onstage when and if our Rulers deem it necessary.

The Godfather in US Politics – The Automatic Earth

Posted by M. C. on November 22, 2019

Regarding impeachment: I had a thankfully short discussion with a friend over dinner and the best analogy I could muster was Pot/Kettle. Later I thought Beria show trialing Trotsky was more appropriate.

The Tattaglias trying the Barzinis works much better.

Below is a private email I received a few days ago from an Automatic Earth reader and that I would like to share with you.

Watching (some of) the impeachment inquiry this week and last, I again get the same feeling I’ve had for some 4 years now, which is something we all know -metaphorically- from the Godfather.

The Democrats and the Republicans are like two -of the five- families, let’s say the Barzini family and the Tattaglia family (we’ll leave the Corleones be), which are both utterly corrupted and lethal predators, and I wouldn’t want to choose between them. But that’s not made easy.

In this metaphor, the Tattaglia family appears to have both the intelligence services and 95% of the media on their side, which keep telling their readers and viewers that the Barzini family are much worse than the Tattaglia family. That’s what I see when I look at the impeachment inquiry, and the comments in the press surrounding it: they all, the Democrats, the media and the FBI/CIA et al, are trying to convince everyone that Don Barzini is the anti-christ and the Tattaglia family are fine upstanding Americans.

What I have been doing over the past years is to try and restore some balance to that picture. But I still get -perhaps not surprisingly- accused of being a right-wing Trump supporter. Because you’re either with us or with them. And 95% of the press is apparently still not enough; they want me to join in as well…

This has nothing to do with my opinion of Donald Trump (and perhaps not even theirs), it’s about the process, and how it has changed, likely to a large extent because of the pressure exerted on the old media by internet and social media. Trump is the best thing that ever happened to the old guard’s finances. They willingly gave up on half the American population, because the other half can’t get enough of Orange Man Bad narratives. Looks like a risky gamble, but they were truly desperate. One should wonder if they really want Trump gone, because what then?

As I said, I thought I’d share that mail. The author said it’s okay. I deleted anything that could identify him. And of course I’m curious to know what you think about his words (and mine).

Hello Ilargi,

I just read Moonraker’s comment about your “right wing talking points”.

This is, once again, tiresome and ridiculous. Just as when people call you a pro-Trump, or whatever similar. Derangement syndrome, or Maoist frenzy, or headless chickens, many descriptive phrases apply to these reactions to anything with a link to common sense.

What amazes me is how unhinged the mainstream view of the world has become. And I am grateful to find a healthy measure of sanity in TAE.

Since 2014 I have been watching a major onslaught of disinformation, starting around Maidan, and later moving into overdrive with Trump. I think the man is a piece of junk, but the mainstream reaction to him has a distinct Orwellian feel (when the progressive ‘Our Values’ crowd starts singing Thank God we have NATO, the CIA, the Deep State… you know your Boeing 737 MAX is flying upside down).

The Narrative about Trump, especially here [in Canada] through our PC media class, is perfect, smooth and shiny, just like a brand new Tesla or a tale you read to your child in bed at night.

Trump may be crazy, I don’t know – but for sure our reaction to him has been erasing our sanity. This [is] both painful and entertaining to watch.

Our collective delusion about anything that matters (Trump, Russia, finance, energy, the rape of our planet, etc.) is IMO the greatest show on Earth. And it is on great display on TAE, including the remarkable Comments section. I have come to love the smell of it in the morning.

So yes Ilargi, please, keep up the good work!

Be seeing you
