I deal with the contradiction of being a retired mechanical engineer and a Luddite at the same time. I have lost faith in our government: it is totally controlled by the corporate monster that is gobbling up the world. It uses mechanical engineers (more...)

This writer in looking at the cruise ship, totally ignores carriers who transmit the virus to people off the ship, once they leave. I am not impressed. But I'm publishing it anyway. He has credentials and it's worth looking at.

Good data is starting to accumulate. South Korea did lots of testing and consequently got good data. Here are the numbers as of yesterday from King County Concilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles:

"Public Health Seattle & King County is reporting the following confirmed cases and deaths due to COVID-19 through 11:59 p.m. on 3/17/20

  • 562 confirmed cases (up 44 from yesterday)
  • 56 confirmed deaths (up 10 from yesterday)

These additional deaths include:

  • A woman in her 90s, who died at Life Care Center on 3/6
  • A woman in her 60s, who died at Life Care on 3/16
  • A man in his 90s, who died at Life Care on 3/17
  • A man in his 70s, who died at Life Care on 3/17
  • A man in his 80s, who died at Life Care on 2/28
  • A man in his 90s, who died on 3/15
  • A woman in her 70s, who died at Overlake Medical Center on 3/16
  • A man in his 70s, who died at University of Washington Medical Center on 3/17
  • A man in his 60s, who died at Harborview Medical Center on 3/16
  • A man in his 70s, who died on 3/16

Of the 56 deaths reported, 35 are confirmed to be associated with Life Care Center of Kirkland.

Statewide there are now 1,187 confirmed cases and 66 reported deaths."

There is no question that this virus kills sick old people. I know from watching, all old people die from something or another. But this response is all out of proportion and the fear mongering is overwhelming.

Consider Event 201 where the world bank and creepy eugenics people like the Gates Foundation gamed the virus last October. The timing has that dead rat smell that has been emanating from this whole plague response. I would much rather give my robust immune system a necessary healthy light workout developing my own immunity than to wait for a poorly tested, marginally effective, very expensive, mercury filled vaccination from Gates' eugenics workers. It looks very likely that the response to the plague will kill many more than the plague itself.

I have this article that has been hanging in the queue all day long:

(Note: they are not going to post the article because of my explanation as to why I have not posted a Dot article for 4 1/2 months. Just want to let people who might be wondering know why it has been so long. Long story.)

Dot6: Coronavirus Pandemic Simulation in NYC on Same Day World Military Games Opening Ceremonies in Wuhan. Coincidence?

Six weeks before the first case of coronavirus was identified in China, a pandemic simulation of a global coronavirus outbreak took place in NYC. On the sameday six weeks before the first case of coronavirus was identified in China, the UN-Themed World Military Games opening ceremonies were held in Wuhan, China. Coincidence?

Taking part in the pandemic simulation were the United Nations, World Health Organization, World Economic Forum, American and Chinese CDC, media, major banks, vaccine manufacturers and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Keep in mind what Henry Kissinger said at the Bilderberg Conference in 1992 about UN troops entering the United States when watching the UN themed video:

"Today, America would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government." - Henry Kissinger, Bilderberg Conference in Evians, France, May 21,1992 -- (claimed to have been covertly recorded by a Swiss Diplomat in attendance.) Quoted in the book "Web of Debt" by Ellen Hodgson Brown

UN Troops World Military Games

(I want to thank Janet Supriano for bringing this video to my attention. Janet has, over time, made me aware of many interesting and important issues.)

(Note regarding my series, "Connecting the Dots." For those of you wondering why I have not posted a "Dot" for 4 1/2 months, it is not that I did not try, I tried very hard. I submitted my Dot5 article but OEN would not post it. I rewrote it 3 or 4 times trying to meet the restrictions I was given. They still would not post it. It is a very important article that all of you should see. And, I want to get your thoughts about what is really going on with the California Fires. Maybe next time.)

Thanks for the link. That side of the story makes much more sense than the one we are being fed. Hang on, we're in for quite a ride.
