Tiananmen Square and the Wuhan/China "SARS-CoV-2" Virus
Ideological vs. Pathological Viruses (Part I)
By Desmond McGrath
March 19, 2020

When the former meets the later, the first casualty is the truth!

I had been paying attention to this virus outbreak since news of it started to pop up through the December blizzard of Trump impeachment. The December, Early January editions of the Straits Times, the Singapore Newspaper I regularly read online, were already mentioning a new respiratory disease occurring in Wuhan before New Year's. In January, I started discussing this with my friend Gary Noble, who like myself has spent significant time in Asia working. Lord Acton could easily be paraphrased on what has transpired since:

"The appalling thing in the [Wuhan/China Virus] is not the tumult but the design. Through all the fire and smoke, we perceive the evidence of calculating organization. The managers remain studiously concealed and masked; but there is no doubt about their presence from the first." (Lord Acton, Lectures on the French Revolution, p. 97.)

It is becoming increasingly obvious that the news pablum the "Great Unwashed" are being fed daily are merely outliers to the truth not unlike the infamous New Orleans "Razzle" or "Cajun Bingo" game; where the only accumulated scores capable of winning are outliers to the bell curve while vocal Shills and Hucksters divert you from seeing this fatal fact.

STUDYING THE SPANISH FLU and a Phial Containing a Culture of Typhoid or Cholera.

The last worldwide pandemic of enormous consequence was the Spanish Influenza during WWI, thus named not because it started there, but rather Spain, not being embroiled in WWI was not censoring its newspapers on the rise of this new illness. Some may call it xenophobic to call it the Spanish Flu because the Spanish merely openly tracked its progress, but is the chorus chant of racism and xenophobia over calling it the "Wuhan Virus" or "China Virus" to obfuscate the fact that China's first and only Biosafety Level 4 Lab is there? Read the CDC article ISSN: 1080-6059 EID Journal Volume 25 Number 5 – May 2019 Main Article: Biosafety Level 4 Laboratory User Training Program, China

Before reading on, I suggest that you watch this short video "The 1918 Pandemic: The Deadliest Flu in History", Jan 7, 2018 the SciShow. Given we are at the 100th anniversary of that event it is not out of the norm for it to be a topic of interest. Also read the article from "The National Center for Biotechnology Information" Learning from SARS: Preparing for the Next Disease Outbreak: Workshop Summary. THE SARS EPIDEMIC AND ITS AFTERMATH IN CHINA: A POLITICAL PERSPECTIVE Yanzhong Huang. Copyright © 2004, National Academy of Sciences. The note at the bottom of the article:
    This paper is adapted from The Politics of China's SARS Crisis. Harvard Asia Quarterly (Autumn 2003). An earlier version of the article appeared in "Dangerous Secrets: SARS and China's Healthcare System," Roundtable before the Congressional-Executive Commission on China, May 12, 2003, HERE

While people are very quick to condemn President Donald J Trump for his response to this Virus Outbreak, consider the following while you read this three part article: Some 10 months before letting 'We the People' decide who the next president will be, Nancy Pelosi (who only represents her district) and other Democrat elite decided that the president needed to be impeached for inquiring about alleged corruption by the Biden Family in the Ukraine. The same Biden Family who pulled off a far more lucrative deal with China later stating China was not a threat. President Trump was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives on December 18, 2019. Nancy Pelosi, held onto the articles of impeachment for nearly a month, before sending them to the Senate, nobody knows why. After the state of the union speech Feb 4th Nancy Pelosi tore up the state of the union speech calling it a 'manifesto of mistruths.'

After a period of long mystery on February 4th Sen. Dianne Feinstein stated "no choice but to vote to convict and remove this president." This is the same Dianne Feinstein who has been trying, through assault weapon bans, to disarm Americans for years and who had a Chinese spy in her office and has been friends with Chinese leadership since the 1980's. Read the Federalist "Sen. Dianne Feinstein's Ties To China Go Way Deeper Than An Alleged Office Spy" or the Washington Examiner "The Spy Who Drove Her: Dianne Feinstein and Chinese Espionage". This is the same Dianne Feinstein who was caught on the phone with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif while President Trump was putting sanctions on Iran after pulling out of the disastrous Iran Nuclear Deal. Did Senator Feinstein also consult with her Chinese friends before voting for impeachment? If so this is no different than Ted Kennedy's Russia Romance.

Note that Sen. Dianne Feinstein was involved in the aforementioned "Dangerous Secrets: SARS and China's Healthcare System," Roundtable before the Congressional-Executive Commission on China, May 12, 2003; during the same time period as "The Spy Who Drove Her." What happened starting in Nov, 2019 with the Wuhan Virus is a repeat of the coverup and disinformation campaign from the 2003 SARS outbreak, but with more devastating consequences. Yet Dianne Feinstein thinks Donald J. Trump was a greater threat to America and the world than China or the Wuhan Virus! Think about that.

While Donald J. Trump was fighting for this Political Future in the Senate, his administration experienced and reacted with the following:

Happenstance reawakened my interest in the Spanish Flu, having heard horrific stories from my Grandfather who was a Police Constable in Newfoundland during the outbreak. Newfoundland was such a unique case that a study was done on it by the University of Missouri-Columbia "Boats, Trains, and Immunity: The Spread of the Spanish Flu on the Island of Newfoundland" two communities in Northern Labrador, Hebron and Okak, experienced 68 percent and 78 percent mortality rates. In some cases, it was less than three days from exposure to death. The number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide with about 675,000 occurring in the United States.

Figure 3 Constable Walter George Dawe, Royal Newfoundland Constabulary at the time of the Spanish Flu

In the Spring of 1989 when I was Skiing at Sunshine Village, Banff Alberta, with several friends from the Maritimes Ian, Jimmy and Brenda. I was on the longest chairlift with only one other person on the chair of 4 we were balanced out as to be at opposite sides. She was an attractive young woman about 4 or 5 years younger than me or about 28 years old and she had noticed the Minolta Maxxum 7000 camera around my neck commenting she had the same camera and inquired about the Data back 70 I had on the camera. There were several stoppages of the lift that day, two of which were on our ride to the top, one lasting maybe 15 to 18 minutes.

During the first stoppage there was a fair breeze from the "Chinook" and I asked her if she was getting cold, she laughed "It's a lot warmer than where I have been." My curiosity piqued, I commented "where was that" she replied "The High Arctic" (never stating exactly where), my response, while not verbatim, was along the lines "wow, I hope you had your camera with you, Northern Lights were spectacular 2 weeks ago due to the unusual sunspot activity" her response was "no sadly, I was in quarantine for three weeks." Thus the following conversation ensued and here are the high level details about some of the questions that were asked and her responses.

She was an epidemiologist and was part of a team that were exhuming several bodies of teens and young adults that were frozen in permafrost that had been chopped out and melted with fire immediately after death during the peak fatality rate of the worst strain of the Spanish Influenza virus and this was the first attempt to ever do so. The members of the team were chosen due to skillsets and as a precaution all members had to have had grandparents or parents who had been exposed to the virus 60 years earlier without fatality. There was a brief discussion about hereditcal/genetic inheritance of immunity in the context of the previously unknown to North America, European diseases that afflicted the Native North Americans after first contact and the deadly effects of syphilis in Europe after being brought back after Columbus's first voyages. When I asked "why in the middle of winter?", the reply "to reduce the risk of loss of containment and ensure the samples are not degraded by thawing them out during exhumation."

Being a technology and methodology "Geek," I inquired how was that exhumation done in the hard permafrost? It was her response that confirmed in my mind that she had indeed had been involved in, witnessed or knew all the mechanics of such an endeavor and was not just a regular university master's student of the biological sciences weaving a tall tale on a chairlift. She explained that the bodies had been buried under mounds of peat and overlaid with rock to make sure predators did not spread whatever disease they had died from. She said core samples were taken with a pneumatic drill that cooled the bit with very cold nitrogen gas. After delineating the bodies, the exhumation was accomplished drilling at 45 deg on each side and ends towards common intersections below the body(s) [ not specified if this was only one body or bodies or how many times it was done]. Then the drill holes were filled a Calcium chloride brine and very small charges put in each hole about 1/3 of the way down each hole and simultaneously fired to fracture between the boreholes. Lifting tines were slid through a special jig that converged the tines at a right angle under the separated mass to allow it to be lifted into a refrigerated containment 'sarcophagus.' This was the term she used as I laughed saying "it's a long way from the valley of the kings." We both exited the chairlift where one of her companions was waiting and we went our separate ways.

I saw her having lunch about 2 hours later and sat to join her. I was just starting to tell her of the Northern Lights display I had seen when we cross country skied into Skoki lodge two weekends earlier when one of her group sat down and gave her the evil eye. The topic was quickly changed to skiing and no introduction given. To those of you who know what I mean, he was an intense "Situationally Aware" individual (aka Spooky Dude) and definitely not an inquisitive scientist. Thinking back on it, she was talking on the chairlift just like someone who had been on a voyage cooped up with the same shipmates for several months or had just gotten out of solitary. I saw her towards the end of the day when I was talking to my friend Brenda and as I pointed the virus hunter out to her, it was obvious that "Spooky Dude" was whisking her away before additional contact. Brenda at her unfiltered best said "Typical jealous boyfriend," I had a different perspective.

It is serendipitously coincidental that Brenda, a corrosion microbiologist, had in the late 80's become friends with journalist Helen Branswell who 14 years later covered the Toronto SARS outbreak in 2003 and was afterwards embedded with the CDC and since then mostly covered just these topics. The only thing that I knew about the Virus Girl was that she was born in Nanaimo, British Columbia and had family friends in Banff. "Spooky Dude" was an unknown, however I suspect that he was probably Belgian; my reasoning for that is that he spoke English with the sterile emotionally detached perfection of a multilingual Belgian professional, not unlike some Belgian B-Euro-Crats. There are three or four friends reading this who will know exactly what I mean having lived and worked in Belgium/France for a few years.

I always looked for any news story on this exhumation and never saw anything until nearly a decade later example from the Baltimore Sun Nov 18, 1999 , but obviously not the same events:
    Six bodies unearthed last year in the Norwegian Arctic have unexpectedly yielded a scientific prize: They hold part of the virus that caused the Spanish influenza of 1918, which killed at least 40 million people in one of the worst disease outbreaks in history.

    Researchers at a scientific meeting in London said this week that they have identified fragments of the long-sought virus in the brains and organs of six young men who died in October 1918 on Svalbard [my comment the world's seed vault in now located there], an island less than 800 miles from the North Pole.

    The bodies were unearthed in August 1998 by a multinational research team that had traveled to the Arctic in hopes of finding frozen corpses in which the flu virus had been preserved. But the bodies were found thawed and decayed, and scientific gossip during the past year had dismissed them as worthless to research.

    The gossip was wrong.

    "The tissue samples that people had dismissed as so bad are yielding very good results," a jubilant, the team's leader, said in a phone interview from London. "We have fragments of the flu's genetic material, the RNA, from the lung, the kidney, the liver and the brain."
The curious aspect of this is that Kirsty Duncan was Canadian and I eventually found a photo of her; she was definitely not the same young woman from a decade earlier. I then wondered if the late 90s expedition was a cover story to explain how DNA sequencing for the Spanish Flu was already completed and gloss over that the source material had been acquired a decade earlier. Kristy Duncan is currently the Deputy Leader of the Government of Canada. Also note that there was controversy about who was going to be credited with the discovery, if you read the article. Also note that between 1987 and 1998 the Level 4 lab was constructed to move this type of research from Ottawa to Winnipeg, Manitoba, officially opening in June 1999, Wuhan's virology institute is a facility opened in 2017 and Chinese nationals were expelled from Canada last summer, see Canadian government scientist under investigation trained staff at Level 4 lab in China; more on that later in Parts II & III.

The Ideological Virus of Communism

There was a more deadly virus unleashed on the world before the Spanish Flu struck and on April 16, 1917 "Lenin was sent into Russia by the Germans in the same way that you might send a phial containing a culture of typhoid or cholera to be poured into the water supply of a great city, and it worked with amazing accuracy." – Sir Winston Churchill.

Professor R. J. Rummel, 1990: ( Rummel layer upgraded his numbers but these are the most widely accepted values) 61,911,000 democides in the USSR 1917-87, of which 51,755,000 occurred during the Stalin years. This divides up into:

1923-29: 2,200,000 (plus 1M non-democidal famine deaths)
1929-39: 15,785,000 (plus 2M non-democidal famine)
1939-45: 18,157,000
1946-54: 15,613,000 (plus 333,000 non-democidal famine)
TOTAL: 51,755,000 democides and 3,333,000 non-demo. Famine

In an August 11, 2011 11:46 AM ET NPR interview with the Author Adam Hochschild of "To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918."
    The human cost of World War I was enormous. More than 9 million soldiers and an estimated 12 million civilians died in the four-year-long conflict, which also left 21 million military men wounded.

    "Many of them were missing arms, legs, hands, genitals or driven mad by shell shock," says historian Adam Hochschild. "But there was also a human cost in a larger sense, in that I think the war remade the world for the worse in every conceivable way: It ignited the Russian Revolution, it laid the ground for Nazism and it made World War II almost certain. It's pretty hard to imagine the second world war without the first."
The Globalists solution was the ill-fated "League of Nations" which did nothing but figuratively rearrange the deckchairs on the Titanic while the war drums beat incessantly during the interlude of silenced cannons. While Neville Chamberlain proclaimed "Peace in our time" One voice in the crowd was Douglas Reed, London Times foreign Correspondent, who despite being a controversial author, published two works The Burning of the Reichstag (1934) and Insanity Fair: A European Cavalcade (Jonathan Cape, 1938) which foretold the next 7 years with such accuracy that his books were banned in Germany.

In an excerpt from The Grand Design of the 20th Century 1977 Douglas Reed stated:
    "I was already, in my little way, a victim of the great conspiracy. Before the Second War, I published a book which gave warning of its imminent approach, and because it broke out promptly, I was held up as a man of brilliant foresight and insight. My eminence lasted but an instant. When I saw, and wrote, that the war was being fought merely to build up Communism, I was howled down as a Fascist and soon found that I was on every publisher's black list."
After 1945, half of Germany (who had been the instigators of Lenin's and Trotsky's capture of Russia) and all of Eastern Europe was behind the "Iron Curtain." After 1949 China and other Asian countries were behind the "Bamboo Curtain"; I discuss this in some greater, parallel & divergent detail in my Nov. 2015 Article Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction? A suggested read for later. Perhaps the best example of the ridicule to which Douglas Reed was subjected was in a Book Review August 1951 Somewhere South of Suez, Douglas Reed by Henry Popkin
    'Although Douglas Reed's writings are represented as journalism, they will bear scrutiny only as fiction of a very weird and original sort. Reed writes in his latest book, "It is a feature of twentieth century politics that political forces advance by attacking what they most ardently practise, so that words mean always their opposite."[Bolding Mine] This belief is the secret of his inventiveness as a creator of political science-fantasy. His firm faith in the unreality of the world that he sees gives him an immense advantage in convincing himself of anything he wants to believe; consequently, whatever Reed's fiction lacks in verisimilitude, it more than makes up in the audacity and extravagance of his inventions.'
The bolded comment is most apropos as it is the exact story of Brere Rabbit saying "Oh please Brer Fox, whatever you do, please don't throw me into the briar patch." Boiled to its essence, it could be summed up as John Kerry's infamous "I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it". This double talk is no more than George Orwell's (a critic of Douglas Reed's) "NewSpeak" from 1984 and it is worth noting the New York Times article, "How the C.I.A. Played Dirty Tricks With Culture" By Laurence Zuckerman March 18, 2000.
    Many people remember reading George Orwell's ''Animal Farm'' in high school or college, with its chilling finale in which the farm animals looked back and forth at the tyrannical pigs and the exploitative human farmers but found it ''impossible to say which was which.''

    That ending was altered in the 1955 animated version, which removed the humans, leaving only the nasty pigs. Another example of Hollywood butchering great literature? Yes, but in this case the film's secret producer was the Central Intelligence Agency.
Was this manipulation to purely put emphasis on the evils of Communism or was it to obfuscate the closing message from Orwell that Some wealthy Capitalist farmers were in cahoots with the Communist Pigs all along? Sound Far Fetched? Consider this Cartoon by Robert Minor:

Figure 4 Robert Minor was an inciteful communist

The cartoon above should be viewed in the context of the following Dr. Bella Dodd Quote:
    "There had been many things I had not really understood. I had regarded the Communist Party as a poor man's party, and thought the presence of certain men of wealth within it accidental. I now saw this was no accident. I regarded the Party as a monolithic organization with the leadership in the National Committee and the National Board. Now I saw this was only a facade placed there by the movement to create the illusion of the poor man's party; it was in reality a device to control the "common man" they so raucously championed."
~ Dr. Bella Dodd (1904-1969) head of the New York State Teachers Union, member of the Communist Party of America (CPUSA) in the 1930s and 1940s, later a vocal anti-communist.

School of Darkness, Chapter 16 (1954)

This duality of Capitalism versus Communism was well articulated in the Spy vs. Spy cartoon by the anti-Communist Cuban Exile cartoonist Antonio Prohías of which the following example is most appropriate. Prohías never identified which was Communist in the same manner that George Orwell's Capitalist Farmers and Communist Pigs looked the same, Black and White; Yin and Yang: mutual objectives. Consider that Mike Bloomberg Once Said He Could 'Teach Anyone to Be a Farmer' Because Farming Needs Less 'Gray Matter' Than Modern Work ranks up there with Chairman Mao's Great Leap Forward, where he tried to turn farmers into backyard steelmakers and there were 5,680,000 democides against those who resisted & 27 Million famine deaths. The issue is not small c capitalism versus communal cooperatives but rather Corporate Monopolism in bed with the Power Monopoly of the Communist Party.

Figure 5 SPY vs SPY Mutual poisoning.

While Cuban Exile Antonio Prohías was enjoying his freedom of Speech in America: John F Kennedy gave his fateful "The President and the Press: Address before the American Newspaper Publishers Association," April 27, 1961. Ronald Reagan gave his "A Time for Choosing" Speech October 27, 1964
    We're at war with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind in his long climb from the swamp to the stars, and it's been said if we lose that war, and in so doing lose this way of freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening. Well I think it's time we ask ourselves if we still know the freedoms that were intended for us by the Founding Fathers.
Dr Bella Dodd was more explicit in a later quote also from Chapter 16:
    "We in the Party had been told in 1945, after the publication of the Duclos letter, that the Party in the United States would have a difficult role to play. Our country, we were told, would be the last to be taken by the Communists; the Party in the United States would often find itself in opposition not only to the interests of our government, but even against the interests of our own workers (bolding mine). Now I realized that, with the best motives and a desire to serve the working people of my country, I, and thousands like me, had been led to a betrayal of these very people. I now saw that I had been poised on the side of those who sought the destruction of my own country. I thought of an answer Pop Mindel, of the Party's Education Bureau, had once given me in reply to the question whether the Party would oppose the entry of our boys into the Army. I had asked this question at a time when the Communists were conducting a violent campaign for peace, and it seemed reasonable to me to draw pacifist conclusions. Pop Mindel sucked on his pipe and with a knowing look in his eyes said: "Well, if we keep our members from the Army, then where will our boys learn to use weapons with which to seize power?" I realized how the Soviets had utilized Spain as a preview of the revolution to come. Now other peoples had become expendable – the Koreans, North and South, the Chinese soldiers, and the American soldiers. I found myself praying, "God, help them all." What now became clear to me was the collusion of these two forces: the Communists with their timetable for world control, and certain mercenary forces in the free world bent on making profit from blood. But I was alone with these thoughts and had no opportunity to talk over my conclusions with friends."

    ~ Dr. Bella Dodd
Being Woke to Tiananmen Square

My thoughts about the "Spanish Flu Body Snatcher" quickly vanished in the weeks leading up Tiananmen Square as I had two Chinese born friends in Calgary who had first cousins protesting in Tiananmen Square and a former classmate from Montana Tech from The Republic of China (Taiwan) I was still in touch with who also had some relatives in the People's Republic of China and we would chat occasionally about what was really happening, particularly after the death of Hu Yaobang, mid-April. See South China Morning Post "Son of reformer Hu Yaobang rues lost chance for change, 25 years after his father's death" by Verna Yu, 14 Apr, 2014

The forgoing header is the title of an article in Canada Free Press regarding the Tiananmen Square Massacre by my friend Jim O'Neill, June 17, 2019. I am very happy to see that Jim is back in (fight/writ)ing spirit after some health issues and has since March 6th 2020, published two articles on Corona Virus Fear HERE and Convenient timing HERE and one on Julian Assange: Victim of The Powers That Be the world's most prolific whistleblower. I think that all 4 articles are well worth reading as a background to my piece here, there is only one statement in the 4 articles with which I take exception and they are not Jim's words:
    "On that day the Communist party sent tanks to clear protesters from Tiananmen Square in the center of Beijing, killing hundreds of people, maybe more than a thousand [possibly several thousand]. In the intervening years, China has systematically erased the evidence and memory of this violent suppression using its increasingly hi-tech apparatus of censorship and control." Louisa Lim and Ilaria Maria Sala "China wants us to forget the horrors of Tiananmen as it rewrites its history"
A UK diplomatic cable written by Sir Alan Ewen Donald KCMG, U.K. Ambassador to People's Republic of China, 1988–91, was released by Julian Assange's Wikileaks and there are two passages of note:


The person who wrote that dispatch was a diplomat with impeccable credentials, was fully fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese and had been in China on various missions since the mid 1950's and had full knowledge of what Mao and his ideological offspring had done in China since 1949. He was heavily involved in returning Hong Kong back to Mainland China and afterwards was rewarded with positions that profited from a Hong Kong and Beijing alliance. Director: China Fund Inc. (NY), 1992–2003; HSBC China Fund Ltd, 1994–2004; J.P. Morgan Fleming Asian Investment Trust Ltd, 1997–2001 (Fleming Far Eastern Investment Trust, 1991–97). President, China Association, 2003–08. Based on this, and the secrecy of a diplomatic dispatch it is highly unlikely that he would have falsified such a high number of fatalities that he never thought would be public knowledge. If he over stated his case it would have severely hurt his credibility and were the later positions used to pay him well for his silence?

I personally heard first hand from one of the witness' of the item 6 events of the diplomatic dispatch. I won't name him, because he was still going back and forth to China to visit his late wife's family despite being in his late 90's (hopefully he survives the Wuhan Virus). He has many nieces and nephews that he fears reprisal against if his name were known. He was one of two brothers, I'll call them Yin (Communist) and Yang (Nationalist), their grandfather was very friendly with Dr. Sun Yat Sen. After the Rape of Nanking by Japanese forces in 1938, despite being in their mid-teens , both were encouraged to join other family members in the forces of Chiang Kai-shek, whom their father knew. This was done out of fear that Singapore would eventually suffer like Nanking. They both met and knew Mao Zedong who later fought in an uneasy coalition with Chiang Kai-shek against the Japanese. After WWII was over and Mao turned on Chiang Kai-shek who retreated with the Nationalists back to "Formosa" now Taiwan; Yin convinced that Mao was a genuine Agrarian Reformer, like so many in the USA were led to believe, and stayed in Mao's China.

Older Yang saw through the deception and retreated to Formosa. They never saw each other in person for nearly 45 years. Yin who stayed behind was later a Chinese communist official and eventually became a supporter of and believer in Hu Yaobang. He was in Tiananmen Square regularly several days a week between the April 22, 1989 parade over Hu's death and the final day when the events of item #6 occurred.

They were attempting to participate in the funeral ceremony of former Chinese Communist Party leader and liberal reformer Hu Yaobang, during an unauthorized demonstration to mourn his death. His death in April triggered an unprecedented wave of pro-democracy demonstrations. Catherine Henriette/AFP/Getty Images From the Atlantic

He recounted the story to me the weekend before Easter 2011 while I was in Singapore working. He said that when he saw the illiterate thugs of the 27th Army shoot one of their own officers, he was in a state of shock. When he saw the same men Bayonet several [he did not say how many] wounded female college students he remembered the stories from relatives in Singapore of patients being bayonetted at The Alexandra Hospital Massacre in Singapore during the Japanese invasion and reflected on one of Mao's boasts "What's so unusual about Emperor Shih Huang of the China Dynasty? He had buried alive 460 scholars only, but we have buried alive 46,000 scholars." He realized at that moment he was living a lie and tried to relay what he saw through outside news channels and to some of the Consulates and was later stripped of his party privileges and ostracized like Hu Yaobang.

Figure 7 Bodies of dead civilians lie among crushed bicycles near Beijing's Tiananmen Square, on June 4, 1989 AP photo from The Atlantic.

He eventually immigrated back to Singapore two years later with the help of his formerly estranged brother who had moved back there after Singapore achieved independence. I remember asking him how he felt about the 65 million that died under Mao's leadership rather than responding with an emotive response he looked at me and responded in a cold melancholy and remorseful but matter of fact manner "that number is much too low"

If you talk with today's average Chinese college student who are of the same age as the minimum of 10,000 who died expressing their free speech and trying to seek Liberty from the oppression of the Chinese Communist Party; they don't know how many died, why they protested or that they built a statue of the Goddess of Democracy that resembled the Statue of Liberty. They know nothing of the deaths that occurred in the 40 years between 1949 and 1989 and many of them think that the students of the Hong Kong Democracy Demonstration that started last year, 30 years after Tiananmen Square are foreign agitating criminals. See "I Think It's Already Been Forgotten" How China's millennials talk about Tiananmen Square By Christopher Beam June 3, 2014. Now 15 years after that article read "China's 2020 Vision of a Good Citizen"

They believe that the People of Tibet were liberated by the People's Liberation Army from a ruthless feudal caste system. They know nothing of the leader of this alleged ruthless feudal caste system, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso and nothing of my Late friend Paldyn Gatyso who was imprisoned and tortured for 33 years. They know nothing of Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, the Panchen Lama, the second highest authority in Tibetan Buddhism after the Dalai Lama, who was kidnapped at 6 years old with his family 25 years ago and not seen since. They only know the Chinese puppet imposter.

They don't realize Tibet is the world's largest open-air prison where Prisons are disguised as Temples. and there have been arrests of those spreading "false" virus stories. They have a complete lack of knowledge with regards to East Turkestan: China Forces Uyghur Population to Watch State Television and Renounce Muslim Identity.

Despite the oppression of Tibet by the Chinese Communist Party, the Kumbum Monastery in Tibet has reportedly donated 1 million yuan to assist people in Wuhan in Hubei Province in China, the location of the initial outbreak of the virus.

I once asked Palden Gaytso in 1999, why he thought the Communist treated him so. The first statement was "in Communism the state is considered divine and the leader the embodiment of that divinity, and I refused to bow to those false prophets of a godless ideology"; the later statement was "In Tibet and in (north) America Governments were constituted by the people to protect the rights conferred by God and thus manifest these immutable truths in the day to day lives of the people."

There are several important lessons in this; the most important being; the people of Wuhan Province are as enslaved by the Communist Party as are the people of Tibet and we are all being enslaved by the lies being spread about the Wuhan/China Virus. Are we to believe the statistics on the infections that came out of China based on the lies about Tiananmen Square?

The Table 2 spreadsheet data was extracted from and I noted that as I was trying to access the data from this site over the past few days it was subjected to a number of attacks; who is trying to disrupt the information?; Hackers Attack Health and Human Services Computer System March 16, 2020. I note that Table 2 is my capture of the data from mid-day March 19, 2020 and 10 AM March 17, 2020, as the infection rate per million was missing for Italy (above) I ended up calculating it. Neither China or Iran's data had been updated and in a curious repeat of the Spanish Influenza of a century ago, only the Spanish Data had been updated until just as I am final editing this piece and reloaded the data. The numbers are increasing at a phenomenal rate. Look at the Faroe Islands and Iceland cases per Million, they are beyond the threshhold of containment.

Table 2 Data Captured mid-day from WorldMeters March 19th 2020

The first thing that jumps out at you from this data is the huge disparity in the cases per million between China and all the other countries with rapidly ascending infection rates. Deaths in Italy now exceed that of China despite China having over 23x the population? Other attempts to get statistical data to compare the Chinese experience to that of Italy were also met with other malicious activity; real viruses and now cyber viruses.

The alleged population density in Wuhan, nicknamed "the Chicago of China" because it is a hub for transportation, is only reported to be 1,200/km2 by one site that says the urban population is only 8,364,977. But if you compare the raw data the urban area is 1,528 km2 and the urban population is 8,896,900 which gives a density of 5,823/km2. Italy's hardest hit city, Bergamo has a population of 121,639 and a population density of 3,072/km² and reportedly 2,635 or more cases 4 days before I wrote this.

Reflect on the Italian infection rates and "I'm not a virus": Chinese Italian man protests coronavirus-related prejudice in early February.

The enormous difference in Total Cases per 1 Million Population and fatality rates would suggest that like the denial and suppression of the true death toll at Tiananmen Square, the Communist Chinese dishonestly in the 2019 Wuhan Virus is worse than was reported in "Dangerous Secrets: SARS and China's Healthcare System" from 2003 and the WHO having known about the threat since Dec 31, 2019 and denied it was of global consequence for nearly 4 weeks.

"there is no such thing as consistent stupidity as those acting in a randomly stupid manner will occasionally err in your favor" – Hon. RS Furlong

"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematical plan of reducing us to slavery." Thomas Jefferson

Singapore Leading by Example:

Singapore has fought many battles particularly against the Japanese and Communism. A snippet of Singapore's 50 year rise from third world post-colonial decay, squatters and mudflats to become a first world Asian tiger with a lion at the helm is contained in my piece. Remembering Mr. Lee Kuan Yew

The best captain an abandoned ship of state ever had and consummate political gardener.

Singapore learned from the 2003 SARS outbreak where 33 people died, here is the current timeline.

Jan 2, 2020 Started screening passengers at Changi Airport.

Jan 5, 2020 Singaporean develops pneumonia after China trip, raises fears of mystery virus

Jan, 22 2020 Singapore's Scoot cancels flight to China's Wuhan over virus outbreak

Jan 27, 2020 So far, there are four confirmed cases in Singapore. Out of the 92 total suspected cases so far, 42 are waiting for their test results, and 46 have already been tested negative. Still no travel ban.

Jan 28, 2020 Wuhan virus: Singapore to impose travel restrictions on holders of Chinese passports issued in Hubei

I'll write more on this in Part II & III, but if you compare Singapore's timeline of 23 days between first case and travel restrictions with the Trump Administration's response of only 10 days between similar events. Plus, the United States imposing more drastic China wide travel restrictions than Singapore only 3 days after Singapore did; CNN, the Communist News Network, has no basis to criticize President Trump.

Singapore has no deaths and yet has to manage about 300,000 per day who come back and forth from Malaysia, across the Straits of Johor to keep their economy going. The Question is; If Singapore learned from the 2003 SARS outbreak, why didn't China? Why was Dianne Feinstein, allegedly fully aware of China's woeful 2003 response, think it was more important to convict and remove Trump? And now both China and Iran are blaming this Virus on America, both of whom Dianne Feinstein has called on her cellphone! Why did WHO, having known about the threat since Dec 31, 2019 deny it was of global consequence for nearly 4 weeks?


America was founded on the premise of self-reliance; it defeated the most formidable army and navy of the era on the affirmations of Patrick Henry's "Give me Liberty or Give me Death" and John Paul Jones "I have not yet begun to fight"; Yet far too many of the younger generation Americans take for granted the Liberty hard won in the Revolutionary War which the Hong Kong and Tiananmen Square students their own age died for and never achieved!

Roland Reagan famously quoted: "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the Government, and I'm here to help."

John F Kennedy also said "And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country."

Countries do not just fall into Socialism at the Ballot Box or Communism by the Bullet, but rather by sleepwalking into slavery through the expectation the government will wet nursemaid you for life. The elderly Italians in Lombardy have been abandoned by their Government despite universal health care.

Thomas Paine summed it up best:
    "THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated"
We as individuals and corporate interests have the power to assist in turning this around and it will not be easy. The following graph shows the 1919 Spanish Flu that circled the world twice over two years. The next graphs show the exponential growth rate of this Wuhan Virus and its Death Toll. It will be high but it can't eclipse 100 Years of Communism – and 100 Million Dead. Minimum number... Professor Rummel theorized it could be as high as 400 million.

Rule 1 Think of the words of Henry, Jones, Reagan, Kennedy and Paine. Honor those in 1776 and Tiananmen Square who stood for Liberty or Death!

Rule 2 Matthew (7:12): "In everything, do onto others what you would have them do onto you"

Rule 3 If you appear well, act as if you have a disease that you want nobody else to catch.

Rule 4 At the same time if you appear well, act as if everybody else has a disease you do not want to catch.

Rule 5 If you feel ill isolate yourself completely, only go to the hospital or ask to be brought to one if you feel you are knocking on heaven's door without that Hospital visit. There is no Cure Yet!

Rule 6 If you are not in a high-risk group or not looking after one, allow the elderly and others in the high-risk group or their caregivers to shop early in the morning. Low Risk Groups shop Later.

Rule 7 If there are only two things left on a store shelf leave one, the next person may need it more than you. J. Paul Getty became the richest man in the world by ensuring the person he sold anything to had profit in the venture for themselves.

Rule 8 Fight with each other at the Ballot Box in November. The common enemy is the Wuhan Virus and the Communist Party of China that has lied about this from the start.

Figure 11 Table 3 The Spanish Flu 100 years ago swept the world twice in two years.

Figure 12 Given that the WHO was contacted by China on Dec 31, 2019 and for nearly a month denied this was of Global Significance what are they trying to hide by their last statement in this Figure?
