A letter from Holland: Unusual skies this week in the Amsterdam region as the world enters lockdown: Libertine, tolerant and free Amsterdam is at this moment just like the rest of the world, empty as the Covid-19 threat takes hold

Unusual skies this week in the Amsterdam region photos Gary Walton.

This time of the year where I live, just north of Amsterdam on the Dutch West Coast we are usually inundated with tourists from all over Europe but not this year. Libertine, tolerant and free Amsterdam is at this moment just like the rest of the world, empty. The cannabis selling coffee shops, sex-shops and bars have all been closed down due to the coronavirus, these places are only used by tourists anyway.

As I walk my dog every day I come across only occasional other dog walkers or runners who are only too ready to distance themselves from me, eying me with caution. Empty busses pass me by as do the occasional automobile, however, Holland wouldn't be Holland without bicycles and scooters and, this is the mode of transport at the moment, especially for the kids.

The past two weeks have been incredibly sunny here, I can honestly say I have never seen the sky so blue at anytime in my life as now. The weather is beautiful, wall to wall sunshine, however, to appreciate it one has to get out of the cold Northeastern wind, my Southwest facing back yard is a perfect sun-trap this time of the year, see above.

My wife and I are in lockdown, (I am allowed to walk the dog) my 26-year-old daughter who was living at home has moved out and is now living with her long time girlfriend (she doesn't want to infect mam and dad bless her.)

Covid-19 is exploding in Holland, just like the rest of the Western World. The death toll rose by 132 today, the number of infections is above 10,000, we are just like you living a nightmare.

We live in extremely exciting times, please, tell us all how it is where you live, leave a comment below, thanks, stay safe and love

Your unusual skies are from frequencies involved in geoengineering. Not so unusual anymore as that is seen globally quite often, new norm.
USA- most, if not all by now, states in some kind of lockdown. FL- our governor has not locked down the state but rather ordered a declaration to follow CDC guidelines but many counties have gone further and ordered 'stay at home' mandates. My county in SWFL is deciding today whether or not to mandate stay at hone.
Regardless of official orders private businesses are also making their own decisions resulting in many store closures. All our public beaches, parks and facilities have shut down one by one during the past two weeks. Your description above of what it looks like in Holland is about the same picture here where I live. 90% of tourists high tailed it out of here right after President Trump announced national emergency two weeks ago, so its pretty quiet out there and a bit eery. No vacation rentals allowed now either. Each day is imperative to check local news for new laws or facility closures to be able to coordinate a daily plan of some kind. Us self employed still need to work, despite news we all won't receive stimulus checks to help get by.
As a Realtor, there is no business except a few past pending deals that most remained in but we did see a few terminated deals. I will tell you that my inbox is littered weekly with two or three solicitations daily from financial institutions seeking real estate agents to take their training classes and work for them due to high numbers of 'processed REO properties' that are coming down the pikes! They say their REO inventory is so large they can't handle it with current staff.
So, as most businesses down size or close the banks are adding workers and work loads. That hints at the strong possibility of this crisis ain't going away anytime soon despite what officials are suggesting date wise. Just a heads up folks!

Hope my guess is inaccurate because we never completely got out of the last REO nightmare from 2008! Stay strong and hold on in case and most likely because this virus crisis looks like a long lasting negative IMHO.
Most importantly, stay well! God Bless and protect us!!!

Have Faith in Hope
It is most unpleasant to feel my world suffer. We need to endure as change occurs with catastrophe. The result will be a wonderful, peaceful, beautiful and free new world. Have faith in nature.
Born to the bush in South Africa, I feel my world. Since 1965 I have witnessed many changes. Travelled from Cape Town, South Africa to Holland in 1992, to England in 2001, to and through Russia in 2018 from St Petersburg to Moscow to Tashtagol and Abakan, to Kazakhstan in 2019 where I saw my horses on the Stepp. I have crossed the world.
I travel alone and unarmed. The poor people have always welcomed me for I am poor. I am a soldier and a warrior too. I travel in peace and with the greatest of respect, for it is who am the foreigner and the intruder. I know my place. It is governments, countries and people with something to lose that make war. Poor people have nothing, so there is nothing to fight over. We respect and help one another to survive.
I wish people could see my world the way I see it. The ancient tribes are still there. South Africa, Europe, The Stepp and the world has an existing ancient tribal structure. As the modern way of life implodes upon itself, remember your roots. Tribes do live in peace and do help one another. War, uprising, and terrorism aren’t needed as nature will run its course. Peace and harmony will follow. Until someone gets greedy and lazy. It will then start all over again.
Have you learned nothing from what I have told you so many times?
“Holy books” are time capsules of warnings from previous civilisation collapses. How you receive those warnings is up to you. Until date, you have always attached the words “holy or divine” to that what you do not understand. Read them in the correct perspective. “Moses” plagues are mentioned in the beginning and the end. The “Genesis” flood is mentioned in the beginning and the end too. Interpretation through the ages plays the game of “Chinese Whispers”. Final plague (the death of the first born) is believed to be pharaoh’s son and the eldest child. Current pandemic which targets the the final plague...the death of the first born. The first born are our elderly.
It is catastrophic losing them, as they hold our most important asset...KNOWLEDGE!
The Northern Hemisphere has been getting warmer and more pleasant. Which is a welcoming and subtle change to those living in a cold environment. The winters in Cape Town have been getting colder and more unpleasant. Houses never needed double glazing or insulation. During the 1980’s snow fell on the distant mountains (altitude of 2000 meters). 1990’s saw snow on Table Mountain for the first time ever(altitude 1013 meters). 2013 Cape Town gets snow at sea level (0 meters). October 2019 South Africa had a massive blizzard during Spring. The locals see snow as a novelty. The truth however is why I write this letter to you. The freeze level over South Africa has lowered. The freeze level over England has risen. Greenwich is moving South.
GPS uses earth’s centre as its centre point. It doesn’t see the surface move. When a magnet (Earth) moves, everything moves with it (satellites). Russia has the best GPS system which is millimetre perfect. Europe, UK and USA GPS is struggling to adapt. Calibrations which lasted 5 years now last 4 years. Our globe is accelerating.
CIA classified released documents cover “The Adam and Eve Story”. Thesis on global flooding and polar shifts through millennia. 2046 is the next 1950’s predicted flood. Allow for a slight margin of error over 6000 years.
Criticising the religious content or my opinion is fine. I am not educated at university. I researched since before I could read. I listen to elders. You may believe whatever you want to. University is nothing more than opinion, proven by opinion and then published for profit. Universities teach a limited understanding of our world.
I am descendant of the first king of Europe who established order after the Roman Empire.
I want no reward, recognition or crown.
I am here to help.

Hello All from pennsylvania.As Hawkeye has said we are all in lockdown now.In my neighborhood a lot more people are out walking everyday.Just to get out and stay somewhat active.I had hired a crew to build a front porch on our home and had been waiting for 2 months in line,now they are not allowed to build anything even though its outside.Only essential work is allowed,such as holes in roofs.President Trump announced last night that the lockdown would continue until the end of April as numbers are still growing.One of my sons is still working,he is essential because he goes into hospitals and fixes computer systems.I worry about him.We babysit his daughter everyday because noone else can,which puts us all in danger.We try to keep some sort of normalcy for her.Her school starts online today to complete the years requirements.We have decorated the house for easter,bunnies everywhere ,for her.We are all taking one day at a time and praying we all get through this.We have a small yard and as soon as I find some new plants we will do some planting.So stay safe all,we can do this .Stay calm and pray,pray,pray.

Craig Christy Prayers for you folks. 🙏🙏🙏 Wife and I are home in the Pocono Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania in McAdoo PA on top of our mountain. We are getting lots of cases as we are about two hours from New York City and getting more refugees every day. We should have a good spike here. We have good supplies and make a short trip once a week to the market. Otherwise sitting home as my wife lost her job due to being laid off due to being a none essential service. Can go to the store and take walks. We prefer the woods. Would say we still have a good ride ahead. Blessings to all you folks in Yeshua Jesus Name.

I too live in Southern Alberta - Calgary specifically - very quiet out - but lots of people still out walking and running. I still go for an earl morning walk or run daily - as I have done for years. The skies were brilliant blue up until the geoengineering on Saturday - sigh..I too lead a quiet life - so not much different for me - I went to a friends house for dinner last night. My mother is in lockdown in a senior's building - so I cannot visit her. and now they are not allowed out of their suites - but she did say that other seniors were on their deck singing - lovely. Blessings to all...I live in no fear - if it is my time so be it - on the other hand I am super healthy and take care of myself so we shall see

Gary Walton said...

Thanks, Tadie, stey safe, The blue skies have been incredible, a blueness I don't ever remember seeing before this crisis, maybe in 2012? When the volcano eruption in Iceland grounded flights in Europe.

The numbers are not growing. We are only being told they are. Here is some evidence I dug up just today while doing a little research.

Here is an assessment of what is really going on I did because of a headline I read about covid19, this time about deaths in New York here; So I looked at deaths from previous years in New York to get some kind of comparison to what they say is happening there right now to determine the severity or lack thereof of the so called pandemic. And this is what I found.

This link says that in 2015 there were 153,623 deaths in New York. When divided by 364 that comes to 420.88 a day.

420.88 divided by 24 hours= 17.53666666667 per hour

17.53666666667 divided by 60 minutes = 0.29227777778 per minute

0.29227777778 times 17 minutes = 4.96872222226 per 17 minutes

This means that there were 5 times the amount of deaths per 17 minutes in a normal year of 2015 compared to what they are saying there are today in New York from the covid19. This means that all they are doing is labeling 1 of every 5 deaths that happen normally every year in New York as covid19 deaths. And the trucks to carry away the dead are apparently just a means to foment panic. For what purpose? I believe it is being done to lead the world to Rev.13.

So the New York Post screams apocalypse headline because of one death every 17 minutes in New York. But, as you can see from these real numbers from 2015 the numbers they are calling "apocalyptic" in 2020 just do not add up. It appears that we are being played in a big way. From these numbers, and those I found concerning the death rates in Italy, this is appearing more and more to be a global false flag event. What Mike Pompeo called a "live exercise in real time" in this video at

God Bless

William said...

Good evening all.
The photo of "Amsterdam skies" is not taken in Holland 1 ! !
Holland has no palm trees.
You may correct me if you PROVE me wrong with irrefutable proof.

Gary Walton said...

The proof is in the picture, my garden, just north of Amsterdam

Gary Walton said...

Here you go William,

Wonderful, Gary Walton, (if that's your real name -- ??) -- indeed, when your blogger profile is not available.
Hence no photo ! No proof ! No pic of garden "just north of A'dam" !

You nicknamed President D. Trump as narcissistic. Name-calling is normally the habit of those who lack the intelligence and charity to see REALITY, but only want to air their own vainglorious ideas.
God bless you.

Gary Walton said...

Hahaha, thanks, Gary is my name just as the palm trees are mine. I can't post photos in the comment section but if you look closely, I left you a link to a photo. Simply copy and paste the link into your browser and you will find all the proof you need.

Gary Walton said...

I certainly do lack charity, you are right on there.
