Some people gain great peace and tranquility by “living in the moment.” Been there, done that.
What you learn by the early 70’s (besides the patience of Job) is that it’s always better to live a little ways into the future. Avoids crowds.
As I started mentioning to you a week or two back, the odds of a massive Second Wave of Covid seemed to us to be increasing. Overnight, Los Angeles went into Masking 2.0.
If you get the disease, no one’s sure if you ever really “get over it.” More than 200 COVID ‘long hauler’ symptoms identified, many lasting beyond 6 months – Study Finds.
Canceling Our Visitors
Thursday was a blue day around the ranch. We had sent out an email earlier that this might happen – so no one should have been surprised. But a planned visit by one of Elaine’s boys and grand daughter, (Covid: Younger adults still at risk of serious organ damage – study), my life-long friend the Major, and even Thanksgiving with our consigliere were all canceled Thursday.
Despite the ample historical data on the 1918 Spanish flu, the happy-talk in the media (and in “governance”) has gone to the idea that Covid has already run its course. Color us skeptical.
Our math figures it differently. So does current news flow.
Looking ahead to 2024, we can make out a projection (*based loosely on Elliott functions) that might look something like this:
(Spike protein, spikey data?)
In the chart above, if you have studied financial markets long enough, you can make out a possible Elliott Wave 1 up, then a Wave 2 down. Many times in Elliott waves, the mathematical relationship (Wave 3 = 1.6 times Wave 1) is realized in Natural cycles, as well as in market functions.
We already have mentioned – many times – that although “officially” this is not a bioweapon (“It’s naturally occurring” is the mantra), the data is not evening out.
We openly speculated in early 2020 that there might be an epicanthal marker aspect to the (apparently/possibly) engineered disease. Look up epicanthic fold here. Real obvious genetic marker.
Now, compare epicanthic countries of the World and what does the data show?
Here’s a simple comparison with China, Japan, and Singapore representing epicanthal regions. The U.S., the U.K., and Germany the predominantly non-epicanthic regions: Looks almost even-handed until – on the right side – we put in cases per unit of population. Then it looks like war.
It’s very clear to us how this “fog of war” is being managed.
The complicit American press simply pretends that cases on a POPULATION BASIS – or Deaths on the same comparison – don’t matter.
As long as NO ONE raises the cases per million (or Deaths per million) the game continues.
China’s War Game
In our view, China has played this “hypothetical” conflict in lieu or immediate global war for dominance and transition into the first of the Chinese Centuries quite brilliantly!
No question that China under-reports/lies about their numbers, but why not? The kill ratio favors them and they know it. Throw in drone-storms to thwart our high-dollar weapons systems, and keep us “chip disabled” to manage-down our manufacturing, and all they need to do is wait. We will spend ourselves into Venezuela’s poor in-law.
China has already begun to insulate itself from online attacks. They are moving their currency toward blockchain. The Great Firewall of China is formidable. Ask Hong Kong protesters about “freedom.”
America is in self-castration mode and our guess is it’s to Beijing’s delight. Use social platforms to neuter the males, confuse the females and toss in ACES2 selectivity for good measure.
Oh look…here’s a marketing angle now: Transgender Characters Were Totally Absent From Hollywood Films In 2020, GLAAD Finds. A queer read in this war context.
Did someone in China know about the Georgia Guide Stones?
Playing the world as sucker’s we call it:
End Game Prospects
Here are some examples of Chinese brilliance:
- Setting things off on their home turf provided instant deniability. Had a bioweapon of this scale have been launched from a third party state, it might have played differently. But, this was plausible deniability at its finest.
- In a biowar, wouldn’t you love to have your “enemies” fail to notice the population discrimination? By not mentioning that only 3.37 people in China die per million population, while in the U.S. that number is 1,838. Military planners revel in things like 10-to-1 kill ratios. The “disease” has a kill ratio of 545 to 1 in China’s favor. Not a “biowar” you say?
- Moreover, since the U.S. is totally dependent on China, we can’t come out and impose sanctions – or any other real punitive actions that might be taken: we simply depend so much on China that we have to keep marching down the present path.
- In many ways, however, this reveals why there is something approaching hysterical marketing (jab-shaming for non-vaccinated people): We stand to lose another million Americans (not to mention the long-term side effects of the disease) if our projected “Real” Second Wave shows up with Delta and Lambda and the variants in the wings. Spanish flu adapted, too…
- Then – and this is the real capper: China could sit back confident that the U.S. would deplete funds – which might have gone into capitalizing new manufacturing to get us off the “victim role” due to manufacturing dependence.
- Instead, with minor (short-term) CONCESSIONS to social media kingpins and already brain-dead liberal “thought leaders” on the Internet, China can softly play us as divisiveness and gender confusion continue America’s national castration and killing of American MoJo.
It’s freaking brilliant. As the track record of of the shots improves, Elaine and I will definitely be getting them. But for now, for us, we have the luxury of quarantining. Most people don’t.
I’m making Chinese food for dinner. Rice wine, too. We like to keep a step ahead.
We the (*possibly larger and year+ long second wave) really gathers steam, there will come a “recognition moment for markets. Not today, though…
Hour to the open, Dow’s up 60. Lumber is down to $570. Why, if this keeps falling, we may have to build a new house…screw just replacing the deck…
$31,397 on the BTC today. This being Friday, though, keep a sharp ear out for ransomware reports. That’d drive up the CrimeCoins complex. Elliott still looks like $28,000 or lower, but that’s a dart, not advice.
June car sales were in the crapper. Chips ahoy? Meantime, even free money hasn’t flushed out the spendthrifts in droves yet:
For the verbose:
“Advance estimates of U.S. retail and food services sales for June 2021, adjusted for seasonal variation and holiday and trading-day differences, but not for price changes, were $621.3 billion, an increase of 0.6 percent (±0.5 percent) from the previous month, and 18.0 percent (±0.7 percent) above June 2020. Total sales for the April 2021 through June 2021 period were up 31.5 percent (±0.5 percent) from the same period a year ago. The April 2021 to May 2021 percent change was revised from down 1.3 percent (±0.5 percent) to down 1.7 percent (±0.3 percent).”
As this larger fog of war continues to enfold, we still see government making all the wrong moves:
Civil asset forfeitures are alive and crooked: Why are innocent people still losing cash, cars and even homes to police? (yahoo.com) Repeat after me: If there’s no due process and ability to confront accusers, it’s a Police State. Pure and simple. We’re all about stomping out crime, but NOT without a day in court. This is financial lynch mobs with badges. Very East German.
No oil? No Resources? No Interest: U.S. Won’t Send Troops To Haiti To Stabilize Country, Biden Says. Tigers don’t change their stripes. Neither to old men.
Around the Ranch
We see Time has found a topic they can handle: In Pig, Nicolas Cage Plays a Grouchy, Meditative Hermit—and Gives His Best Performance in Years. Goes on our watch list.
Still, no matter how bad the news gets, American Monetizations step up: Snap Lockdowns and Border Closures Creating Demand for Online Flower Delivery. Easy in a country of blooming idiots, for sure.
OK, off on the first grub-hunt of the day. Like I told a vegan friend: “You want lumber, you cut down a tree. You want a good steak, you cut down a cow…:” (Stomped off fuming…one less to share with…)
