Hi folks,
Just thought you may be interested. You tube. Corona virus pandemic proven fake yet the lockdown continues.They have taken down a few of these. So watch this one before it goes.I wonder why google and you tube would want to keep taking this kind of video down? Do you think maybe it's because they have some truth in them.

liz said... Please listen to this. The pandemic is a fake along with many other fakes to turn us into a Communist country. I think they have done it.

I do not doubt that there are people dying from this virus - but there is a lot more going on than we will probably ever be told - the only deaths reported are to the virus - what about these individuals having other health concerns that may have taken them out - they just happen to have this virus as well - this is a big military op I believe and i choose to believe that this time of lockdown will take down evil people around the world - information is leaking out as well

I agree Bob. The longer I am reading and watching, the more I have become convinced that this is orchestrated mainly to freeze the populace with fear and prepare them for a loss of more freedoms and more of their possessions/resources. A new economy is coming but it won't benefit us Joe and Jan Doe-s. The rich have to restructure since they have blown one bubble after the other enriching themselves and now their bubble was about to reach a ceiling that wasn't that profitable any longer.
From testing with tests that don't work and just show some levels of some corona virus infection (but not the type or load) to arbitrary death attributes to this beer virus (all deaths where some kind of beer virus was found is counted as Cov 19 death) to other inconsistencies incl. empty hospitals, false video reporting (remember CBS using n Italian hospital clip repurposing to show the situation in NYC?), false or no reporting on how one actually can strengthen ones body in natural, safe, cheap and effective ways etc.
And, why the heck would a government that is so big in censorship leave their famous Event201 videos up for everybody to view again and again? Most likely answer: to keep the fire burning and for people to keep suggesting that this is a planned (aka actual) virus infection. And to divert from the fact that this all is just a show that makes us panicked so we don't look what rotten reasons rulers are actually have to destroy parts of an economy they can't use in the future and to impose more control onto the masses.
Good short video on some of this:
