In both cases, state-sponsored terrorism and propaganda were used to distort the public's perception of the threats, leading to increased governmental control of society and huge financial benefits for corporations.
It appears that the same kinds of effects are being seen as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of the features and outcomes seen in the war on terrorism and the war on communism are evident in this new "war on death."
Therefore, it's reasonable to wonder if the extreme response to COVID-19, and its associated virus SARS-COV-2, could be another psychological operation (Psy-Op) against the public.
Considering facts about the disease and the disproportionate response emphasizes the possibility.
If COVID-19 has been co-opted for manipulation of the public, through hyping the threat and pushing exploitive solutions,
Let's first review what features and outcomes the "coronavirus scare" shares in common with the "red scare" that drove the perceived threat of communism and the "Muslim scare" behind the perceived threat of terrorism.
Here are a dozen characteristics that these perceived threats share:
There are also differences between the COVID-19 pandemic response and the "wars" on communism and terrorism.
The primary actors driving the coronavirus lockdowns and associated control mechanisms are political leaders.
Others controlling the coronavirus scare are national health agencies, most notably the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United Kingdom's National Health Service (NHS).
Are these agencies acting solely in the 'interest of public health'...?
The common impression is that the entire matter began in reaction to events in China but even that is not clear.
For example, the virus is said to have originated in the city of Wuhan and the first, limited, lockdown occurred in that area from January to March.
China has since said that it warned the WHO about the virus during the first week of January.
However, it is known that U.S. intelligence agencies were aware of the potential outbreak even before that, in November 2019. A Chinese spokesman later suggested that the U.S. military might have brought the virus to Wuhan during the military games held there in October.
The first instance of an entire country being locked down for the coronavirus was in Italy.
This occurred on March 9th based on advice from the Italian government's coronavirus adviser Walter Ricciardi, who said,
Ricciardi, a WHO committee member, later admitted that Italy had inflated the death counts from the virus, stating:
Many have noted the inordinate influence of billionaire Bill Gates on the activities and direction of the WHO...
As of 2017, this influence was seen as troubling, with health advocates fearing that:
Gates has been called a ruthless schemer by his Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and Allen is not alone in that assessment.
Despite engaging in a costly "public charm offensive," Gates is seen by many as a predatory and monopolistic opportunist hiding behind a false front of 'philanthropy'...
With regard to the coronavirus scare and Gates' stated goal of vaccinating the 'entire world population', however, people should be most concerned that he has worked diligently on mechanisms of population control.
Of course, no one person controls the world yet so who is supposed to be running WHO, apart from Bill Gates?
The face of the WHO is Dr. Tedros Adhanom, the director-general of the organization.
Problems at WHO didn't start with Tedros, however.
After the H1N1 pandemic of 2009, evidence came to light that the WHO had exaggerated the danger and had spread fear and confusion rather than helpful information...
It was later learned that,
The WHO then proceeded to change its guidelines for defining a pandemic in order to accommodate those contracts, thereby increasing the public's fear despite the fact that the pandemic never became a serious threat.
Although WHO has been praised for its work to reduce some illnesses like polio, it has also been found that drugs and vaccines recommended by WHO have been,
A comprehensive view suggests that the WHO is more of a corporate interest agency than an organization committed to preserving public health.
That's not surprising due to the fact that 80% of WHO's funding comes from "voluntary contributions" provided by private donors including,
And since the worldwide response to COVID-19 has been directed and coordinated by an organization that works on behalf of multi-national corporations that stand to benefit, the idea that the coronavirus scare could be a psychological operation seems plausible.
In the US, the CDC is also heavily influenced by corporate and political interests.
This became clear when, in 2016, a group of senior scientists within the CDC filed an ethics complaint against the agency making that exact claim.
The scientists noted that, in order to pursue political objectives, "definitions were changed and data cooked" at CDC, even to the point of misrepresenting data to Congress.
Like the WHO, the CDC has a history of pushing harmful vaccines.
An example was covered in a '60 Minutes' episode exposing the harm done by the Swine Flu vaccine in 1976 and CDC's urging that all Americans be injected with that harmful vaccine.
The report revealed that the illness was hyped based on very questionable data and the vaccine caused neurological damage.
The CDC is an agency within the department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Alex Azar, a lawyer and former pharmaceutical company executive, was appointed as Secretary of HHS in 2017. Azar has deep connections to the pharmaceutical industry and is known for having engaged in price gouging with his former employer.
Azar is also known for leading the HHS response to the anthrax scare of 2001, the first known bioterrorism attack on the United States.
The anthrax attacks were targeted against members of Congress and the media that were dissenting voices in the national discussion about the Patriot Act, the oppressive legislation introduced immediately after the 9/11 attacks.
Although Muslims were first blamed through highly questionable evidence, it was ultimately found that the weaponized anthrax came from U.S. military laboratories.
Azar was instrumental in defining the National Biodefense Strategy in 2018, working closely with John Bolton, Trump's National Security Advisor.
Bolton, a neocon and member of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), has a long history of pushing authoritarian policies and war.
In the US the person most visibly in charge of the COVID-19 response is Anthony Fauci, who is the long-time director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
Whether SARS-COV-2 was genetically engineered in a laboratory, like the NIAID-funded Wuhan lab, is a subject that has become of interest to many scientists.
The Wuhan laboratory is not the only place the US supports work like this, however, as the Pentagon funds such labs in 25 countries across the world.
Located in places such as Eastern Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia, and Africa, these labs isolate and manipulate viruses like the bat coronaviruses from which SARS-COV-2 originated.
This bat-research program is further coordinated by a group called EcoHealth Alliance.
The manipulation of viruses for gain of function at US funded labs is, like the origin of the weaponized anthrax at US labs, evidence that bioterrorism and pandemics can be manufactured events.
This is another way in which the coronavirus scare could reflect the war on terrorism and war on communism, both of which were driven by manufactured terrorist events.
It is remarkable that Fauci funded work to manipulate coronaviruses then became the voice of the coronavirus pandemic response while also working closely with Bill Gates' GAVI initiative.
Fauci has boasted that NIAID and GAVI work together to push vaccines with,
This makes it easier to see that a new pattern of hyped pandemics resulting in increased population control and global vaccinations is not only possible but would be a very lucrative business model.
The NHS and Corporate Nations
By now it's well known that the initial projections for deaths due to COVID-19 were massively overestimated and one academic paper was responsible for the panic.
The lead author of that paper, Neil Ferguson of Imperial College, has since resigned in disgrace from his government advisory position.
Much like the US government's explanation for destruction of the World Trade Center buildings, his estimates were based on computer models that cannot be shared with the public.
As in the US, UK intelligence agencies have taken a leading role in managing the coronavirus scare.
The terrorism expert who is expected to be the next chief of MI6 was selected to lead a new "biosecurity centre" to evaluate the coronavirus threat and "enable rapid intervention."
Additionally, the UK intelligence agency known as Government Communication Headquarters (GCHQ) was granted powers over the NHS's computer systems.
GCHQ is known for engaging in illegal activities related to population control mechanisms such as mass surveillance.
For perspective, in 2009, Thiel said,
...providing another clue that public health and awareness are not the main priorities behind the coronavirus scare.
The data behind the COVID-19 pandemic was never reliable, with,
Recently, scientists and government leaders from other countries, including Russia, Germany and Denmark, have begun speaking out about how the coronavirus threat has been exaggerated...
The outcomes of the coronavirus scare have included huge windfalls for,
Legislation being passed in response to COVID-19 is largely beneficial to corporate interests.
The outcomes for everyone else have been,
How this is possible is related to the fact that governments, and the nations they represent, are no longer what they were.
In many ways, corporations have replaced governments as the drivers of public policy and, as with Peter Thiel's Palantir, the public's interest is not their concern.
Meanwhile, over two dozen companies have become larger and more powerful than many national governments.
As a result, governments are now false fronts for corporations and the decisions they make, for example to lockdown citizens and remake their economies, are driven by profit-based strategies indifferent to public interests.
Therefore, the response to COVID-19, if not the virus itself, can be seen as a psychological operation (Psy-Op) used to drive those outcomes...
