THREAD
1/ This is the question that keeps me up at night. The total failure of the intelligence community to connect China with lockdowns is the most devastating part of this story. I can only speculate as to several explanations, roughly in order of least-to-most concerning:
1. They just don’t know.

Immersed in our anti-lockdown community, it’s easy to forget how niche we are. Intel officials have expressed great interest in my work—it’s meant in part as a tip for them. So intelligence agencies may just not know yet.
2. The cleverness of the lab as decoy.

The CCP has deliberately funded rumors that COVID is a super-brain-eating-bio-weapon, mostly to discredit intelligence officials. Based on my interactions with intelligence folks, this decoy has been very effective.
3. The cleverness of world domination through public health.

Officials have said intelligence agencies were blindsided that public health might be used for geopolitical domination—which is exactly why the opportunity appealed so much to the CCP.

4. They suspect China is driving lockdowns, but they’re not 100% sure.

Announcing a war with a superpower is a big deal. So it’s possible intelligence agencies strongly suspect China is driving lockdowns, but they need to dot their i’s and cross their t’s before going public.
5. The intelligence community may be incompetent.

Contrary to popular imagination, the CIA tends to be far more incompetent than omnipotent.
6. Intelligence officials are public employees unaffected by lockdowns.

Just like other Zoom-meeting professionals, intelligence officials bring home big paychecks regardless of productivity, and may not care about lockdowns because they’re not personally affected by them.
7. The intelligence community may be split as to whether COVID is dangerous.

Based on my communications with intel folks, some believe COVID is a super-bio-weapon, and some think lockdowns are China’s plan. Thus, they may be erring on the side of caution by doing nothing.
8. The intelligence community is compromised and getting fed bad intel.

The CIA is certainly a bit compromised—3 CIA agents have recently been arrested for spying for China. Double-agents can effectively feed bad intel of the super-bio-weapon variety.

9. The intelligence community may know, but politicians aren’t acting.

The intelligence community reports to the president/PM. If the president/PM doesn’t want the public to know China is behind lockdowns (e.g., to preserve trade ties), s/he can simply table the intel report.
10. The intelligence community is too embarrassed to admit the truth.

Like politicians, the intelligence community might think the public can't handle the truth that they failed so spectacularly and lockdowns were all for nothing (thus playing right into Xi's hands). Evidence:
11. We’re just wrong.

Of course there’s the possibility that maybe there really is a super-virus out there, and Xi and his collaborators heroically stopped it by suspending all human rights, and we’re just the a-holes spreading germs and misinformation and killing grandmas.

1/ Thread – “The Hammer and Dance”

On March 18, the German government circulated a CONFIDENTIAL strategy paper referring to the strategy of strict social distancing as the “Hammer and Dance.” The paper was later leaked to a whistleblower website.
abgeordnetenwatch.de/blog/informati… ImageImage
2/ Anti-lockdown activists likely recall the term “Hammer and Dance” from CCP shill Tomas Pueyo’s viral March 19 article, which appeared one day AFTER Germany’s CONFIDENTIAL strategy paper was circulated on March 18.
3/ The term “Hammer and Dance” or “Hammer and the Dance” was never used before March 19.

Neither “Hammer and Dance” nor “Hammer and the Dance” appear on Twitter in the disease context before March 19.

1/ Last month, it was widely reported that Chinese business leader Ren Zhiqiang was given an 18-year sentence for calling Xi Jinping a "clown."

That's not what happened.

Ren was given an 18-year sentence because he wanted the truth about Xi's lockdowns.
nytimes.com/2020/09/22/wor…
2/ In his essay, Ren was disgusted with Xi's COVID response:

"Trying to cover up the true facts with various 'great achievements,' as if this epidemic began with your written instructions on January 7."

Jan 7 was the day Xi authorized Wuhan's lockdown.
nytimes.com/2020/02/15/wor…
3/ Ren continues: "Why haven’t the January 7 instructions been made public, not yet even today?! How were various national-level meetings able to gather after January 7? Why are you still traveling abroad? Why did you celebrate Spring Festival in Yunnan?…

1/ THREAD – THE GLOBALISTS

Many folks have asked about some suspicious high-level globalist initiatives and whether they might have worked with the CCP to fake a pandemic. This thread lists some key initiatives and their likely relation to the world lockdown catastrophe. Image
2/ Event 201

This eyebrow-raising, but good-faith, 2019 pandemic exercise, to which CCP was a party, simulated steps for global institutions to take during a severe coronavirus pandemic. This appears to be the model CCP hijacked for its COVID-19 fraud.
centerforhealthsecurity.org/event201/
3/ Rockefeller Lock Step

This is a 2010 simulation of a nightmare pandemic leading to authoritarianism, discussing how philanthropies could help. If it seems like someone read these scenarios and the book 1984 and got ideas, that’s exactly what CCP did.

1/ A visual representation of the 2020 COVID psyop strategy, which appears to be a rare false-false-flag operation.

Essentially, the CCP used the Wuhan virology lab as a decoy to distract hawkish officials while laundering deadly, totalitarian lockdowns as “the science.”
2/ Regardless of origin, studies have proven COVID to be rather ordinary, IFR ~.13%. CCP used fake whistleblowers and propaganda to accuse ITSELF of releasing it, sowing fear and distracting China watchers from the totalitarianism cropping up around them.

3/ Meanwhile, CCP used its clout and collaborators in prestigious international, academic, media, and government institutions, which carry great weight with liberal elites, to normalize the lie that China’s measures could effectively “control the virus.”

1/5 Big News: USCIS issues policy generally disallowing visas and green cards for members of the CCP or “other totalitarian party.”

To my knowledge, this is the first official policy referring to the CCP as “totalitarian” since the end of the Cold War.
uscis.gov/policy-manual/…
2/5 The USCIS policy dusts off an old law from 1952 which has lain dormant (unenforced) since the Cold War.

Earlier this year, Pompeo, O’Brien, Wray, and Barr referred to the CCP as a totalitarian threat, but this is the first official policy to do so.
3/5 This is an enormous step, marking a turn from tough words to concrete actions. The CCP has over 90 million members, so before celebrating too much, remember this likely affects people we know, though there are some exceptions and waivers available.
