One of the biggest lies being peddled to the public by Trump and Co. is that none of our institutions, health experts, or corporate luminaries anticipated the potential of a pandemic happening.
Before getting too far down this rabbit hole let’s start with Dr. Anthony Fauci and what he said at Georgetown University in 2017. This comes from Newsweek:
Delivering a keynote speech at the Georgetown University Medical Center event, Dr. Fauci said: “If there’s one message that I want to leave with you today… is that there is no question that there will be a challenge to the coming administration in the arena of infectious diseases.
“Both chronic infectious diseases in the sense of already ongoing disease, and we have certainly a large burden of that, but also there will be a surprise outbreak.
Fauci is very confident in his prediction. He doesn’t say there could be a surprise outbreak, he states boldly there WILL BE a surprise outbreak. And he was right.
We don’t have to go back three years to see how one corporate luminary was involving his billions in pandemic planning. In fact just months before the pandemic emerged something called Event 201 happened, and someone by the name of Bill Gates was involved.
Here is a description of the event from center for health security dot org:
The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted Event 201, a high-level pandemic exercise on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.
Event 201 really did happen, and the institutions and people cited really were involved. It’s not a conspiracy theory to say that Bill Gates is positioning himself to influence the world’s response to this pandemic.
Gates recently did an interview and said some very interesting things. The most interesting thing was scrubbed from the interview, but captured and reported on at the Off-Guardian. How are we going to get out of lockdown and back to work? Here is what Bill Gates thinks:
Eventually what we’ll have to have is certificates of who’s a recovered person, who’s a vaccinated person […] Because you don’t want people moving around the world where you’ll have some countries that won’t have it under control, sadly. You don’t want to completely block off the ability for people to go there and come back and move around. So eventually there will be this digital immunity proof that will help facilitate the global reopening up.”
There is a note after this direct quote indicating post-interview manipulation:
[Sometime on the afternoon of March 31 the last sentence of this quote was edited out of the official TED video of the interview. Fortunately, recordings of the complete interview are archived elsewhere.]

Event 201 is not the only simulation that has been undertaken to game a response to a global pandemic. I’ve linked to this piece before, but I’ll link again because Whitney Webb’s research is a must read, so please check out All Roads Lead to Dark Winter.
If you don’t want to read alternative media, there is also some interesting reporting from the Nation about how the military knew of this threat years ago. From the link:
Despite President Trump’s repeated assertions that the Covid-19 epidemic was “unforeseen” and “came out of nowhere,” the Pentagon was well aware of not just the threat of a novel influenza, but even anticipated the consequent scarcity of ventilators, face masks, and hospital beds, according to a 2017 Pentagon plan obtained by The Nation.
“The most likely and significant threat is a novel respiratory disease, particularly a novel influenza disease,” the military plan states. Covid-19 is a respiratory disease caused by the novel (meaning new to humans) coronavirus. The document specifically references coronavirus on several occasions, in one instance saying, “Coronavirus infections [are] common around the world.”
The idea that our federal government with Trump at the helm is a bumbling, dysfunctional mess provides convenient cover for the fact that extensive planning for a pandemic HAS been conducted.
So why has the response been so terrible? Maybe because the problem needs to get bad enough to ensure we accept their solutions.
