This is probably the funniest meme I’ve seen in a long time. I remember playing the Oregon Trail game at school on an old green screen Apple computer back in the early 90’s. Anybody remember the old floppy disks? Not the 3.5″ floppy disks, I’m talking about the original 5″ floppy disks that the Oregon Trail game was on. I still remember them.
Seriously folks, you’re going to have to have a sense of humor for times like these. If you can keep your sense of humor, you can keep your head and your cool. If you can keep your head, you have a greater chance in preserving your life. Not that your life is in any real danger, contrary to what the fearmongers in the news would like to have us believe. Unfortunately, people in America have not kept their heads and are now panic buying essential items, toilet paper being number one. The stupidity of the herd is actually quite funny, however, but it still hurts the infrastructure and creates an ever bigger panic. Hopefully our society will come to its senses soon and begin to see through the PSYOP that is playing out like a poorly written B movie.
I choose not to buy into the media hype about the coronavirus. Let’s put this “pandemic” in perspective for a minute. The first confirmed case of coronavirus in the continental US (CONUS) was announced on January 21, 2020. As of today, March 14, 2020 1130 hrs, there are 2,340 confirmed cases in the CONUS according to Worldometers website with 2,240 ACTIVE cases. Yes, there are cases of people that have it and they don’t even know it. I also question the accuracy of the testing as should we all. But the numbers are relatively small in scheme of things. Remember when all the fearmongers in the media were telling us a month ago that this thing was going to absolutely explode? Does this look like an “explosion” to you? They’re now saying that every hospital bed in America will be filled by May 8th. We’ll see.
I now want to show you the numbers:
Right now as of 1130 hrs 14 Mar 20 there are 150,137 confirmed coronavirus cases in the world. But look at the green number below it, 73,731 cases have RECOVERED. Right now there are only 70,789 active cases in the world. That is the number that the fear propagandists are not reporting. They keep using the bigger number of total cases from the beginning of the “pandemic” to raise the level of public anxiety. They will never report on the people that have recovered and have a clean bill of health today. 70,789 active cases out of a planet with over 7 billion people, folks. Very small percentages we’re talking here. Why are you panicking? Look at the percentages too, 92% of them are deemed ‘mild cases’, only 8% are ‘serious or critical’. For most people that catch this, it will be like a bad cold for them. They will survive just fine and will get over it like they would any other cold or flu virus. Quite a stark contrast from the perception and picture that media are trying to paint in our collective heads of people dropping dead in the streets from this.
Let’s look at the death rates by age and condition now. Most of the people that have died from this in the United States were in a nursing home in Washington State. What does that tell you? Research the data and you will find that most of the fatal cases are among the elderly and those that already have a preexisting medical condition or illness. Again, why the panic? Why do you sheeple go to Walmart or Costco and buy up all the toilet paper as if that’s going save you from getting this virus?
I want to address something that I touched on in my last article about this. STAY AWAY from the fearmongers, not just in the mainstream media, but the “alternative” and “patriot” media as well. These people are the ones that will need all the toilet paper because they are absolutely full of you know what. I’m going to name names who to stay away from, the first one being the king of conspiracy BS fearmongering – Alex Jones. Do not tune in to his BS sensationalist program. This idiot was out just the other day down in Austin, TX getting drunk at a sushi restaurant then got pulled over and arrested for DWI.
First off, if this sensationalist fearmongering BS artist was really concerned about the coronavirus, then why was he at a sushi restaurant eating raw fish? Can somebody explain that to me? I’ll explain it, it’s because his whole entire persona on the air is an ACT. He’s been pushing fear to his gullible audience for years and he’s been capitalizing on their fears to sell his health supplements and doomsday prepper garbage. But I must be “COINTELPRO” by exposing this fraud for what he is. You “infowarriors” need to pull your heads out. A person doesn’t make millions of dollars by telling the truth, folks. This is true with mainstream media journalists, televangelists, and BS sensationalist infotainment artists like Alex Jones. Alex Jones is one of the greatest conmen (Trump being the first) that the “patriot movement” has ever fallen for. Wake up sheeple.
Mike Adams from Natural News is another one. He is associated with Alex Jones and Infowars, stay away from him.
Stay away from Michael Snyder who writes three blogs that I will not name because I refuse to give him any traffic to his sensationalist fearmongering pages. He’s probably one of the biggest “the sky is falling” chicken littles I’ve ever seen. Almost all of his predictions of doom that he’s written about over the years have not come true. He’s been sounding red alert after red alert about the “imminent implosion of the economy in the next few months” for 10 years. Guess what, it hasn’t happened. Stay away from this guy.
Stay away from YouTube chicken little fear prophets like Christopher Greene. I watched one of his videos the other day with him telling everyone about the imminent doom of the world from his vacation suite in Hawaii. Another video is of him driving around in his convertible telling his audience about the imminent collapse of the world monetary system, then telling them to stock up on his preparedness supplies and food. Gee, how do you think he got the money to afford Hawaiian vacations, nice watches, suits and convertibles, folks? He wants all you to panic and buy his crap while he lives the high life. This is yet another fear prophet for profit that has been “predicting the collapse” for years with all predictions falling flat. He’s even deleted his old videos from 2010, 2011, 2012 ect. because he knows it would destroy his credibility.
Stay away from SurvivalBlog.com. I’ve been a reader of Survival Blog for years and the the reaction over there, right now, because of the coronavirus is beyond ridiculous. Instead of calm, James Rawles stated that the coronavirus in Washington State had a 25% mortality rate last week when all those elderly folks in the care home passed away. Well, gee, if it wipes out a good number of isolated elderly people in a care home of course the fatality percentage is going to be up in that state, but you just had to sensationalize by highlighting the 25% in order to blow the whole thing out of proportion. I read this morning that his wife now goes out in public with full face mask, goggles and gloves and there has not yet been a single case in their home state of Idaho. I swear most of these survivalists live in a constant state of fear and paranoia and are scared of their own shadow. They are also wiping and spraying down their mail and quarantining packages in a separate room for 9 days before they open them. I mean, you just can’t make this stuff up, folks. People are losing their minds over this. The spirit of fear is running their lives.
Almost all of these “alternative media” doom prophesy sites and channels love to handpick statistics and facts to reaffirm their confirmation bias and sensationalism, no matter the source. If the WHO and the CDC have the biggest numbers they’ll run it. That goes with everything else they’ve sounded the false alarm on over the years. They’re really no different from the mainstream media, if it bleeds it leads.
Now a source from YouTube that has his head on straight is Florida Maquis. He’s been covering this in depth for the past week and telling the truth about this BS. I suggest if you want a breath of fresh air, go to his channel and watch his videos he’s done about the coronavirus.
Now, I want to share something that I learned in my own survival training over the years that I feel will help everyone. It is the SURVIVAL acronym:
S – Size up the situation.
U – Undue haste makes waste/Use all of your senses.
R – Remember where you are.
V – Vanquish panic and fear.
I – Improvise.
V – Value Life.
A – Act like the natives. (unless of course the natives are a bunch of panicking hordes without common sense)
L – Live by your wits or learn basic skills.
By adhering to the acronym above, you will make it through 99% of the situations that may come at you including this coronavirus. Vanquish panic and fear is the key, however. Right now, the media and the government have cultivated the pandemic of fear among the public. Always remember that a fearful public will always be putty in the hands of those that seek more power. Always remember to ask who benefits from all of this. A lot of people are getting filthy rich off of this “crisis” – $8.1 billion has been spent by the federal government recently to “stop coronavirus” and now President Trump just declared a “National Emergency” to spend more money and put this country deeper into debt. Yes, there’s a lot of people that are laughing all the way to the bank while you are shuddering with fear about this made up crisis. Most people are going to beg the government and the medical establishment to save them if it gets worse, even if it means latching the shackles around their own ankles.
Finally, I’d like to suggest a few preventative measures that should be common sense to everyone. Number one being: wash your hands and wash them good especially after touching door handles, gas pumps, ATM machines, going to the bathroom, ect. Stop coughing and sneezing into the open air in public places, this is just disgusting and inconsiderate no matter the situation. Get plenty of sleep and drink plenty of water, not soda, not energy drinks, but pure filtered water. And on top of all this, change your diet! Most Americans’ bodies are filled with burgers, french fries, pizza, and processed garbage. There’s no mystery why obesity rates and heart disease have skyrocketed here over the decades. It’s all because of what people eat. Understand that your fort of toilet paper isn’t going to save your ass when your body is stuffed full of McDonald’s and Pizza Hut. In order to have a good immune system you need healthy whole foods like fruits, vegetables, and foods that are minimally processed. Learn to cook for yourself instead of eating out all the time. I’m not advocating veganism, I’m advocating common sense here. Cut out dairy too, I’ve learned that our bodies were not meant to consume cow’s milk and dairy products. I’ve personally done this and I’ve never felt better. It’s now springtime and the weather is warming up. Turn off the psychological warfare box inside your house and get outside and get some sunshine. The sun’s natural rays help the body produce vitamin D, an essential vitamin for your health and immune system, way better than any vaccine from GlaxoSmithKline. Keep your heads, remain alert but remain calm and always remember:
“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.” – William Pitt
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
