The Huge National Distraction (impeachment sham) underway in the District of Coercion is keeping more Americans from seeing the bigger picture.  

Since I like to write (both non-fiction AND fiction), I thought this morning’s serving of brain-stimulant should be a short FICTIONAL story that came to mind as I was doing my red-light therapy today.  Because this matters… It’s potentially the biggest debacle in human history.  (Remember, this is fiction!)


Prolog

I’d been working in my studio on “the time machine” – an acoustical device used to transit dimensions using a peculiar sound pattern that has occurred at many times and places throughout history:  It was a combination of specific drum beats and multiple tones in harmony.  When applied at sound levels of +95 db in the presence of coherent light and smoke (incense and burnt offerings) a “kindling effect” began.  After a while, a very small cloud began to form, and it was this cloud that supernatural effects emanated.

It had only been used a few times, but I was surprised one morning in March of 2020 to find an odd-looking piece of paper on the floor next to the acoustical focal point.  The paper looked very old and felt brittle.  But, since it was in English, I began to read what seemed like an account of modern times…

What I read shocked me to my core…

“An Urgent Warning

This is a note from your future self.  The flame-out of Western Civilization was barely noticed, as it began back in January of 2020.

To be sure, a number of people saw it coming.  You already know the Internet seer had been telling people for years the coming  Replay of 1929 that was in the wings.  And Financial Astrologer Arch Crawford had earmarked the dates January 9-16 as the “Insert huge event that will echo for years” in this range..  Both were right, but not in the way anyone had expected.

The  Federation of American Scientists had hinted at what was to come.  But, few Americans knew how long China has been in bioweapons research.  Their website had reported that:

“On May 21, 1997, pursuant to the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991, the US Government imposed trade sanctions on five Chinese individuals, two Chinese companies, and one Hong Kong company for knowingly and materially contributing to Iran’s chemical weapons program. These individuals and companies were involved in the export of dual-use chemical precursors and/or chemical production equipment and technology. The Chinese companies were the Nanjing Chemical Industries Group (NCI) and the Jiangsu Yongli Chemical Engineering and Technology Import/Export Corp.

In 1939 the Japanese army established the Unit 731 germ-warfare research center in Harbin, where Japanese medical experts experimented on Chinese, Soviet, Korean, British and other prisoners.

China possesses an advanced biotechnology infrastructure as well as the requisite munitions production capabilities necessary to develop, produce and weaponize biological agents. Although China has consistently claimed that it has never researched or produced biological weapons, it is nonetheless believed likely that it retains a biological warfare capability begun before acceding to the BWC. China is commonly considered to have an active biological warfare program, including dedicated research and development activities funded and supported by the Government for this purpose. There is essentially no open source data on the subject of Chinese BW activities, and many legitimate research programs use similar, if not identical equipment and facilities.”

Whether the Chinese government had engineered the outbreak of early 2020’s novel corona virus to be genetically selective is still being debated, even now in 2025.  Some say it was the soft-start to WW III.

But we can track the evolution of the outbreak from the early 2020’s.

It began as a report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today confirmed the first case of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in the United States in the state of Washington. The patient recently returned from Wuhan, China, where an outbreak of pneumonia caused by this novel coronavirus has been ongoing since December 2019. While originally thought to be spreading from animal-to-person, there are growing indications that limited person-to-person spread is happening. It’s unclear how easily this virus is spreading between people.

For a few months, the disease meandered around the globe, but at each turn  it become a different virus, a chimera, difficult to spot.

The real downturn came in early summer of 2020 when the virus evolved a most unusual characteristic.  It began to selectively attack people – depending on their eyelid structure.

The media was slow to pick-up on the genetic angle, mainly because in its earliest clusters, the genetic-targeting was not clear, not specific, and therefore overlooked.  The virus was spawned from an area where a certain genetic strain was nearly universal.

The mechanics of the virus evolution into a genome-specific weapon came, by some estimates, in April of 2020.  Apparently, the selectivity had been achieved by tuning the virus such that mutations would begin to overlook people who had epicanthal eyelids, a clear genetic marker.  Eventually, by late summer of 2020, “epicanthic fold” had become the most-searched terms on the Internet as conspiracies went viral:

“An epicanthic fold is a skin fold of the upper eyelid that covers the inner corner (medial canthus) of the eye.[3] However, variation occurs in the nature of this feature and the possession of ‘partial epicanthic folds’ or ‘slight epicanthic folds’ is noted in the relevant literature.[6][7][8] Various factors influence whether epicanthic folds form, including ancestry, age, and certain medical conditions. “

The virus didn’t entirely avoid people with “Asian eyes” – the epicanthal fold – but it was a clear marker of ethnicity and a good predictor of disease survivability.

The debate now, in 2025, with world population reduced by 22.1-percent, centers on whether China loosed a gene-weapon on its own soil, knowing that while there would be a low mortality rate in China, it would reduce global populations by a much greater amount.  Leaving China the sole super power in the world.

Some had argued, the Chinese had engaged in an historical rhyme on Germany’s invasion of the Sudetenland that led to World War II.  The genius of the plan was that China – long considering itself something of a super-race, and having a successful 5,000-year history to back up the claim – had simply invaded via biological means.  Loosed on its own soil, they enjoyed plausible deniability.

Since the outbreak, the results have been clear:  The U.S. population was reduced only 3-percent, but populations beyond China’s supply chains, namely Africa, the Middle East, and South America, all suffered not only death rates in the 5 to 10% range, but that in turn triggered other events.

The 2020 political convention left  a billionaire big-shot and a left-leaning woman challenger. running for the presidency.  By then, however, the stock markets worldwide had begun to crater.

Still trying to recover from a long-wave decline, the broad bottoming of interest rates had been seen as recovering a bit in 2020 as demand and growth were set to right economic scales.  But, as the mutated disease began to burrow into the aging population, panic was becoming palpable:

The true genius of the epicanthic selectivity had been clear to researchers for more than a decade:

High frequency populations

The highest frequency of occurrence of epicanthic folds is found in specific ethnicities: East Asians, Southeast Asians, Central Asians, North Asians, Polynesians, Micronesians, Native Americans (as well as Mestizos), the Khoisan, and the Malagasy. Among South Asians, they occur at very high frequencies among the Bhutanese,[10] Northeast Indians,[10] Kirati, and certain Adivasi[10] tribes of eastern India.

“In some of these populations the trait is almost universal, specifically in East Asians and Southeast Asians, where a majority, up to 90% in some estimations, of adults have this feature.[11]

Lower frequency populations

Epicanthic folds also occur, at a considerably lower frequency, in other populations: Europeans (e.g., Scandinavians, English, Irish,[12] Hungarians, Russians, Poles, Lithuanians, Finns, Estonians and Samis),[13][14] South Asians (Sinhalese,[15] Bengalis[10] among other groups in eastern South Asia),[10] Nilotes, Cushitics and Amazigh people.[16] The degree of development of the fold between individuals varies greatly, and its presence or absence is often subjective, also its frequency varies clinally across Eurasia. Its use, therefore, as a phenotypic marker to define biological populations is debatable.[17

Eventually, a modestly effective anti-viral was developed in early 2021 – derived from a canine corona virus.  But, due extremely slow approval from U.S. health administrators, the anti-viral treatment wasn’t widely available until early fall of 2021.

The disease – unlike most novel variants – didn’t “burn-out” quickly.  Moreover, it was mutating into three or four sub-strains, each of which could re-infect, and as a result incapacitate, large ports of populations without the epicanthic fold genetic marker.

This weakness was then exploited by China, which moved into Taiwan using the flimsy cover of “humanitarian air.”  Concurrently, North Korea, acting at China’s suggestion, staged an almost bloodless take-over of South Korea, thus appropriating the Korean heavy industry with the goal of reindustrializing the North.

For a time, in 2021, the virus decimating South and Central America, resulted in a huge short-term burst of illegal immigration.  Hispanic people wanted the protection the American anti-virus was providing.  Most were repelled, but many made it through the still porous border bringing fresh mutations of the virus into the American border states.

The economic depression – which most experts claimed could not occur in 2020 – in fact arrived by  late summer.  It was clear the pandemic would not be a “normal” event.  Coupled with a number of mutated Ebola outbreaks, as people fled Africa, hoping to avoid corona virus, the world was quickly entering a collapse phase.

Opportunistically, Muslim extremists used the resulting people of human resource depletion, to shut down portions of the U.S. Internet for sometimes a week, or two, at a time.  It was rumored the China, having planted secret “back-doors” in its high-end router products, had shared the means and know-how.

Both sides were insistent on living to the old Middle East saying, “The enemy of m y enemy is my friend…”

(The rest of the document wasn’t readable…)

I put the document down and began to turn on equipment.  Our use of the “time machine as a portaling device” was becoming an urgent matter but the document assured me that the results were already certain.  Time, I knew would be short.  Still, I didn’t know how to share this vision of the future.  So, a column was posted on an Internet site.  Perhaps, just maybe, it could help.


END OF THE FICTIONAL PART

The rest of this morning’s column is really pretty damn boring, in comparison.

In the Shorts

Once again, we see the U.N. issuing orders about, while population reductions are beginning to loom.  See U.N. orders Myanmar to prevent Rohingya genocide.

Meantime, with the horses out of the barn, China locks down city of Wuhan, new details about U.S. coronavirus victim emerge.  And up in the Mongolia area, we expect to see stronger borders all around.  Related: Putin to Revive Russia’s ‘Great Wall’.

AI we think, may be part of designer bio-weapon development.  So it’s significant to read China cares as deeply about A.I. ethics as the US, Microsoft CEO says, as he calls for global rules.  Of course, no one will abide by them, due to seeking competitive advantage.

The good news is, as I’ve been outlining on the  Peoplenomics side of things here – in my book  The 100-Yearf Toaster – the same vision is beginning to slowly spread: The ‘old idea’ of maximizing profits is now ‘part of the past’: Publicis chair. Money for the sake of money is a fools game, but how many civilizations have failed before ours for foolish reasons?

Hacks du jour: A new text message scam is disguising itself as a FedEx notification.

And in the middle of it all, Feeling Good is reappearing as Americans’ Financial Satisfaction Moved from Record Lows to All-Time Highs Over the Last Decade: AICPA Index.

So, Against These Stories…

Does “making money” matter as much as it once did? The Trump impeachment trial—an American constitutional crisis once again proves no match for the power of the markets, is an interesting perspective.

On that note, off to have a delicious “ranch style breakfast” here at  Uretopia.  We’ll be suffering through:

  • Assorted fruit (pineapple, water melon, cantaloupe, grapes
  • Assorted yogurt flavors
  • Bacon
  • Eggs (pick the style, even mushroom and cheese omelets )
  • Bailey’s French toast
  • Orange juice, coffee, milk…

Ure’s truly loves to cook…Wednesday’s all-day corned beef, cooled and sliced onto fresh rye and turned into grand Reuben sandwiches, will be hard to beat.

Our guests brought us a bottle of Appalachian Sipping Cream which tastes eerily similar to Bailey’s and near-knock-offs…Will power exercise?  The accompanying bottle of Oban will be held for their next visit. Maybe…or maybe not.

Did I mention Dow futures are down 70 points with an hour to the open?  How much that matters depends on clocks and bugs.  Which is the point to remember:  Time runs out…we only have so much “clock” to collect the lessons for which we have chosen this lifetime.
