The Pandemic Planners: Conversations in the Dark

by Jon Rappoport

A SIGN LIGHTS UP: JULY 10, 2019.
Do we have a launch date set for the pandemic?
Looks like December of 2019, or January 2020.
I’m still confused about the virus.
There is no virus.
Why not?
If our people could actually create one—highly doubtful—they would have no idea what it would do. All viruses mutate rapidly. You never end up with what you started with. But selling A STORY ABOUT A VIRUS—that’s a winner. That’s all we need.
How do we sell it? Won’t people catch on right away?
Are you kidding? Our people will develop a diagnostic test for the virus. How they build that test determines the outcome. It’ll register positive much of the time, along with some negatives. And here’s the important point: the technical details involved in constructing the PCR test are very dense. Even many professionals don’t understand them. It’s like speaking Icelandic to a South American tribe in the rain forest. Don’t worry, we’ll get away with it.
And the lockdowns? The quarantines?
They’ll come, trust me. The Chinese will start the ball rolling. They have the force to pull it off. They’ll lock down a few cities right away. Wuhan, for example. Maybe 60 million people. Overnight. It’ll be a startling development. The UN and the WHO will climb on board quickly and praise China for its handling of the crisis. China will become THE MODEL for the rest of the world. Other countries will follow suit.
Who is going to step forward in the West? Italy?
Yes. They’re next in line for big lockdowns. The Chinese regime has enormous clout with the Italian government. So Italy will become the first beachhead in the attack on the West.
America is the key. If they join the club, we’re in. How do we convince Trump to play along?
He’ll cave. We’ll feed him a computer projection of deaths in America. Something huge, like two million. Trump isn’t good with details. He’ll buy in.
But the lockdowns will decimate the US economy. Trump’s whole presidency rests on economic success.
He’ll give in to Fauci and Gates.
Why?
Because he doesn’t have the stomach for this battle. He won’t go up against the medical experts. He’s bold in some respects, but on this issue, he’s a wobbler. That’s our calculation.
The news media are ready?
With wall to wall messaging, 24/7. PANDEMIC. Cases. Deaths. There are no dissenters among them. We’ve got that all sewed up. Medical experts pontificating on-air. Fear.
I’m nervous about this. Will it really sell? I mean, how can they construct a PCR test if they don’t have a virus, if there is no virus?
It’s easy, trust me. We’ve done it before. Anyway, your part of the operation comes after the lockdowns. You’ve made a few hundred million doing business with China. You’ll be able to make a few BILLION soon, buying up distressed properties after the lockdowns gain traction.
I’m going to bankroll social justice movements. You know, protests, riots, burning, looting, assault, in major cities across America. It’s a terrific issue, and it’ll be a major distraction from the lockdowns.
I know all about that. I’m copied in on every aspect of the operation. Just make sure all those riots are focused on racism and police brutality. We don’t want any leakage about inner city gangs and drug cartels and banks.
No problem. The gangs distribute drugs for the cartels, the cartels wash their money through banks. It’s a tight fit. Nobody is going to prosecute the gangs as continuing criminal enterprises. That’s off the table completely. The protests will have no mention of gangs as a problem. We’ve got the foot soldiers all sewed up. Hell, some of them ARE gang members. Are you sure the 2020 presidential election is in the bag?
Absolutely. Trump has no chance. By the time we’re through with him, he’ll be persona non grata. Biden is our man. We need someone with SEVERE cognitive deficits in the Oval Office. Only a completely dimwit, mentally speaking, would sign some of the orders we’re going to put in front of him. Harris is being prepped to step in if Biden has to resign for health reasons. She knows enough of the score. She won’t try to go off on her own. Give her a whiff of the presidency and she’ll do somersaults for us.
Here’s the thing. Forget about Trump. The real danger is all the people who support him. The millions of deplorables out there. They still think the American Republic and freedom are on the table.
I agree. They’re a problem. But there are solutions. We’re going to put a label on all their heads. ‘They’re very bad people. They all want to destroy the government.’ That’s how we’re going to paint them. Our modelers believe there are enough Americans who are beholden to the federal government…they’ll view Trumpers as a serious threat. Very serious. We’ll have that issue covered.
Is the QAnon op going to keep going?
We’ll keep it going forever. After Trump leaves the White House, we’ll have people saying he’s still president and he’s arresting every high-level evil person in the world.
FADE TO BLACK…………

The lights come back up.
Wow, THAT was a hell of a dream—who are you?
Agent Jones. Federal Domestic Terrorism Task Force.
What are you doing in my bedroom?
I’ve been recording your dream.
What?
We have it all. Two pandemic planners. Why were you dreaming about them?
I have no idea. Who—
It reflects a certain state of mind. A dangerous mindset. Why weren’t you dreaming about a television show or a garden in the forest? Have you been reading conspiracy literature?
I read newspapers. WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
Something in you must have triggered this dream. A psychological predisposition. A latent dissatisfaction.
I’m not dissatisfied.
That was not the dream of a normal man. Thoughts and dreams lead to conclusions, and conclusions lead to action.
I once had a dream about jumping off a building. I haven’t jumped.
Not yet.
Why are you here?
Checking up on a potential defector.
A defector from what?
What the rest of us know.
I’m like everybody else.
Everybody else doesn’t dream about a plan to make billions of dollars buying up distressed properties.
Is that a joke? I wouldn’t know where to start, even if I had that ambition. Which I don’t.
You start from where you are. A man with his thoughts. We need to explore your life thoroughly. You may have connections you’re unaware of. A distant relative. A casual acquaintance. Something may have slipped through the cracks.
I have to be at the office in a few hours. And I want to speak with a lawyer.
About your dream?
About you. This situation. Am I being charged with a crime?
No.
Then I’m free to—
You’re not free. Your status is “suspended, depending on outcome.”
What status?
Who told you Kamala Harris would cooperate in a plot to subvert the government?
No one.
Where did you get the idea that Biden is disabled?
Nowhere. It was a just a statement a man in my dream made. I wasn’t speaking at all. I was watching and listening.
I wouldn’t advise trying to deny responsibility. I didn’t have the dream. Your neighbor didn’t. You did.
Do you dream?
No.
Never?
The kind of dream you had was aberrant. What makes you think there’s going to be a pandemic and it’s some sort of plan?
Why do you care about my dream?
Because some fantasies are dangerous.
And some are meaningless.
The key is the content. You were constructing a conspiracy scenario. Do you have an opinion about viruses?
No.
I’m going to leave now. By tomorrow, you’ll wonder whether this conversation actually took place. If you reject me, think of this event as a warning from your subconscious.
What are you going to do?
You’re on a list.
Meaning what?
A more thorough background investigation. Increased surveillance.
Even while I’m asleep?
Listen carefully, sir. You’re always asleep. In the dream, you woke up for a minute or two.
FADE TO BLACK…….

With apologies to drunken sailors everywhere. . .

February 9, 2021
Bahia Beach, Puerto RicoThe year was 1977.
Disco was in. Star Wars was the biggest movie of the year. The world’s first personal computer was announced– the Commodore PET, which came with 8 kilobytes of memory.
And the Gross Domestic Product of the United States reached $1.9 trillion– more than double what it had been just ten years prior.
As you probably know (or possibly remember), though, most of the GDP “growth” during the 1970s wasn’t because the US economy was strong. Quite the opposite, actually.
The 1970s was a period of economic stagnation and inflation. The economy was in such bad shape that, between January 1, 1970 and December 31, 1977, the S&P 500 grew exactly ZERO percent.
Yet food and fuel prices kept spiraling out of control. This is a big reason why GDP kept rising in the 1970s despite such a weak economy.
We’ll come back to 1970s inflation in a moment; for now, I’ll point out the coincidence that the latest COVID stimulus bill which Congress seems ready to pass, is also $1.9 trillion.
In other words, the amount of money they want to spend in a SINGLE legislative package is the same as the size of the entire US economy in 1977. And 1977 is still fairly recent history.
Even today, $1.9 trillion is nearly 10% of the size of the US economy, and roughly 50% of expected federal tax revenue this fiscal year.
Before this COVID spending plan was announced, the Congressional Budget Office estimated in early January that the budget deficit this year in the Land of the Free would be $2.3 trillion (up from their $1.8 trillion estimate a few months before.)
Now they’ll have to add another $1.9 trillion to the total, tentatively bringing this year’s budget deficit to $4.2 trillion.
It’s important to note, of course, that the politicians and public health officials keep moving the goalposts on when life will go back to ‘normal’.
Their latest estimate is that, after hundreds of millions of people are vaccinated, then possibly by late fall there will be “a degree of normality”.
But naturally if there’s the slightest hint of anyone getting the sniffles this fall, they’ll likely slap everyone back down into stay-at-home orders and quarantines. And this means MORE stimulus.
Stay home. Be afraid. Dehumanize yourself and others. Believe what you’re told. Obey. Collect your free government money.
Among the countless, obvious problems with their plan is that they only have one way to pay for it: debt.
The national debt in the United States is nearly $28 trillion right now (up from $23 trillion pre-COVID). And the debt will sprint past $29 trillion soon and reach $30 trillion within the next few months.
At $30 trillion, the national debt will be roughly 1.5x the size of the entire US economy. That will also be a record high– even higher than when the US was fighting the Nazis in World War II.
The challenges with this approach, of course, are that
(a) someone actually has to have trillions of dollars lying around; and(b) be willing to lend such prodigious sums to the US federal government.That’s a pretty tall order.
Most foreign countries don’t have that sort of money. Europe and Japan, for example, are flat broke. And those who do have the money (China) don’t have any interest in financing US government deficits.
You can see this in the data: foreign ownership of US government debt has actually been declining over the past few years, giving a very strong indication that they’re unwilling and/or unable to loan more money to Uncle Sam.
So, with foreign lenders off the table, the Treasury Department will have to look to other sources.
Social Security’s trust funds have long been a source of plunder. But with the program having already turned cashflow negative (and set to run out of money possibly by the end of this decade), this isn’t a viable option any longer.
That leaves the Federal Reserve– America’s central bank. The Fed has the ridiculous authority of being able to conjure unlimited quantities of money out of thin air in its sole discretion. And as a result, they’ve been buying up the vast majority of US government debt for most of the past decade.
Prior to the Global Financial Crisis in 2008, the Fed’s balance sheet was around $850 billion. Since then, they’ve created so much money that their balance sheet has ballooned to $7.4 trillion.
This takes me back to the 1970s.
Starting in around 1970, the Federal Reserve began heavily slashing interest rates and pumping more money into the economy in an effort to boost GDP.
The plan was successful; like I wrote earlier, the US economy ‘grew’. But so did inflation and unemployment.
Inflation in particular was miserable during the 70s, reaching 14% by its peak in 1980. And most of this happened because they borrowed too much and created too much money.
I wrote about this recently— economic prosperity isn’t rocket science. All that’s required is some basic fiscal restraint, economic freedom, and a stable currency. The free market takes care of the rest.
History shows that bad things tend to happen when politicians and bureaucrats try to engineer prosperity by debasing the currency.
Yet these people continue to print and spend money like drunken sailors… which is frankly an insult to drunken sailors everywhere. Even drunken sailors eventually realize when they’ve run out of money.
It’s entirely possible that such unprecedented debt and money expansion could cause serious problems with the currency– including 1970s style inflation.
Don’t fall into a logical trap and believe that inflation will never be a problem, simply because it hasn’t been a problem yet.
Rather, acknowledge that the US was extremely lucky for inflation to have been relatively benign over the last decade.
But after the year we just had, it would be foolish to assume that the next decade will be as tame as the previous one.
