CNBC reports today that Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former head of the Food and Drug Administration says “there’s growing circumstantial evidence that Covid may have originated in a lab.” This is news? I was talking about this over a year ago. I was alerting Freedom and Reason readers to gain-of-function research in Wuhan in early May 2020 (“Science and Conspiracy: COVID-19 and the New Religion”).
Why did establishment media hide what those of us who understand science and are prepared to look honestly at evidence—and brave enough to face ridicule in order to speak truth to power—knew back then? Why were our Facebook and Twitter posts labeled as false or misleading and so many of us deplatformed? The corporate media knew what the science and the evidence showed. Were they lying?
The answer is simple: the establishment wanted Trump out of office so they could get back to the project to denationalize the planet, and as long as they could keep the origins of the virus secret, and not allow mass attention to shift focus to China, the public could be led to blame Trump for the pandemic. When Trump told us to look at China, because he knew what was going on, the media could accuse Trump of racism and conspiracism. Even today, they try to blame Trump for anti-Asian hate crimes (“The Rise in Anti-Asian Hate Crimes. Trump-inspired? Not Quite”).
The establishment used the pandemic to change the rules of the election without having to tell us that SARS-CoV-2 was a lab-enhanced coronavirus unleashed on the world by the Chinese Communist Party. All this hype over Trump and Putin? What we really needed to worry about all along was Biden and the Chinese Communist Party. Biden bragged about his more than 25 hours of one-on-one meeting with Xi Jinping—General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party, Chairman of the Central Military Commission, and President of the People’s Republic of China (“‘Dear Hitler’ or Joe Biden is the Neville Chamberlain of Our Time”). What is more, they knew Fauci and his agency was in back of the research.
A Ministry of Truth, operated by transnational corporate power, has constructed a hyperreality for us to live in. Progressives eagerly signed up. But the information flow has too many channels, and too many people, however much they enjoy suspending their disbelief to consume fantasy and science fiction, don’t want to live forever in the Matrix.
For the twentieth century and much of the twenty-first, there was no alternative to the establishment propaganda system. But the Internet is too anarchic to contain, and anti-establishment voices are multiplying. Having conditioned the populous to hear alongside such venerable terms as “nationalists,” “patriots,” and “populists,” other less honorable names, such as “nativism,” “racism,” and “xenophobia,” the power elite have been desperately trying to keep people from the truth by smearing those who point their audiences in the right direction. But the people are wising up to that, too.
There is a massive grassroots rebellion brewing. The two big issues: the lies told to us about this virus and the constant dissembling over the 2020 presidential election. The elite are are terrified that, not only will the truth come out, but that they will be exposed as liars. They go on about the legitimacy of American democracy. Far more important to the ruling class is the legitimacy of the establishment propaganda apparatus.
It used to take us years and even decades to find out about their lies (the Gulf of Tonkin, the bombing of inner Cambodia, COINTELPRO, Carter and Afghanistan, WMD). We are close to finding the truth in real time thanks to the anarchy of the Internet. For many items, we already are finding the truth in real time.
Expect in the very near future a ramping up of the effort to tightly regulate the Internet, to stand up paywalls and social credit schemes in front of everything. Watch the global rollout of vaccine passports. The elite will not stand by and watch more than a century of world planning go down the tubes. You stand between them and liberty. Pay attention.
