Martial Law likely around the corner

As major U.S. cities prepare for a total lockdown to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, police, state troopers, the Army and the Air National Guard are preparing for martial law.

That means you need to prepare for mass quarantines.

The “shelter-in-place order” is coming.

    The IMF signals that the Chinese economy is picking up again, most big companies are operational and many employees have returned to work:

    No new Corona cases in China and only 7 dead over the past few days.

    More good Corona news: Several German soccer clubs are facing bankruptcy, which is good because there is probably no other institution (apart from the government) that has been used so much to promote multicult than soccer:

    “The “cure” is worse than the disease. Dr. David L. Katz, founding director of the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center, has pointed out in a Friday, 2020 March 20 op-ed that”

    It’s a balance because it is the battle of the bulges. If the health system is compromised then mortality is higher with other conditions also. Healthcare is a fragile system with a high degree of complexity. If the economy is damaged then there is food and supply shortages. This means it is a ride through the gauntlet of citizen panic for a disease but also shortages. Neither must be neglected but both will have to endure tensions. This is not a cake walk this is the real deal that techno optimist dismissed for years. Now the payment is coming due for the unstable type of life that is now all we have.

    “The IMF signals that the Chinese economy is picking up again, most big companies are operational and many employees have returned to work:”

    LMFAO, who are they going to sell to now that Europe is locked down and the US rolling through lockdowns. Trade is shuttered so a middle income exporting nation like China is not going to make much. Plus sources I have read indicate their economy is toasted currently. Not much happening but they are trying.

    “No new Corona cases in China and only 7 dead over the past few days.”

    My sources say that is false and just the CCP pushing propaganda. HK which is more transparent and who has handled the virus better than China is seeing secondary surges which is what the science and math say will happen. CCP are liars but cloggo believes them because he believes what he want to believe.

The Epoch Times confirmed the footage was filmed at the hospital…Netizens Many netizens are skeptical of the authorities’ claims that the epidemic has been contained. One widely circulated article posted onto a Chinese internet bulletin board said that only when three criteria are met will it indicate that the epidemic is truly over. The three criteria are: all schools in China reopen; North Korea and Russia reopen their borders to China; and the CCP holds its Lianghui (“Two Sessions”), the Party’s annual conference for its rubber-stamp legislature and the advisory body, the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. This year’s Lianghui was scheduled for March 3 to March 13. On Feb. 24, the Party announced that it would be postponed due to the epidemic.”

    This is an unsupported comment at Oil Price dot com but it points to a logical way forward the Chinese are practicing. This is maybe some good news for the tailing off of the infection bulge and the inevitable second wave that will come. Too bad there is no treatments for the global economy. The economy was due for a reset so now everyone has an excuse. We are in a new world now economically.

    “As far as I’m concerned, there is already a cheap easy solution for the treatment end. Which is why I suppose, China has stopped testing people and just took down the quarantine. And no, there are plenty of new cases in China, just that their current policy is not to test them so they can pretend the problem is over. They have a list of proven treatments including antivirals and HCQ, so a patient can be treated early on based on symptoms and an antibody test and prevented from developing the full blown disease.”

  22. REAL Green on Sat, 21st Mar 2020 7:57 am 

    I have been researching and living this way of life for 15 years now. It started out a bit extreme but in the last several years my green prepping has matured into a way of life that is beyond the need to prep for just such an event as our current pandemic. It is about attempting to reduce globalism impact on my life and take steps to localize into a lower carbon life at the same time I maintain my status quo life of family and money making. Bills don’t go away and family is only so understanding of localism.

    Now that we are in an accelerated decline process I have come to some conclusions. One is the real danger of this pandemic is an economic reset. We will not be able to return to the world we knew a few months ago. The connections, wealth, and sentiment will have been altered by this. Whole industries will have been decimated. The economic system was set to reset by something. It was a bubble with little sense of reality with debt and asset values. There is a silver lining to all this if we make it though without too much damage and that is a reset that can force a degrowth on a population that otherwise would have been unwilling to contemplate. Now the leadership across the spectrum can have an excuse and people the understanding of the need.

    We are all going to suffer together. There is no hiding and few will get out of this without a haircut. The very rich will get the biggest hair cut because most of their wealth was digital and unsustainable anyway. This means that our society is now prepped for something different. Attitudes will now be altered by force of nature. This coming period of degrowth will likely mean an economic depression. This also means we will have the common crisis to reset to a new level of living and by default this will be on smaller scales. Gone will be globalism vast and dominating value chains that no government could resist or fight. A wounded globalism will result. Now the people will blame globalism for their pain as they forget the riches it has brought in the form of products. Many do not realize how powerful an economic engine globalism is but at an expense to resilience and sustainability.

    This will be a double edge sword for the green movement because the renewable revolution of solar, wind, and EV’s will be greatly damaged but so will fossil fuels. Big corporations will be held more accountable. Gone will be the top activity of enriching themselves with stock buy backs and huge pay packages. Normal people who experience food and shortages of things will reevaluate growing their own food but also investment in things that offer common sense resilience and sustainability. We will see the vast unfunded liability of safety nets and pensions evaporate into this depression. This means gone will be the sunbelt retirements. People will work the rest of their lives. Home economics will return in importance. A lot less leisure and travel are in our future and this is a good thing.

    In other words, the discretionary binge of the last 20 years will be gone. Consumerism, Travel, and energy intensive fun stuff will be gone as we know it. This is good stuff if we can find the strength to make it through what is ahead. If we are not careful and cooperative, what is ahead is very dangerous. It means food and things in shortage. It also means globalism will not give us the SafetyNet for localized famine or disaster response. There is also the ever-present danger of WWIII. As you spend your time self-isolated reflect on these conditions. If you can react positively to what was inevitable anyway. Do it in anticipation of a different world that will be more realistic. We can get through this and be a better people with less planetary damage.

    https://tinyurl.com/wejjmg4 Casandra legacy
    https://tinyurl.com/uv8qlvb graph of virus progression in EU

    “Let’s start with some data. 1) Italy is the world’s 9th largest economy (not for much longer). 2) It has a completely free and subsidized public healthcare deemed the second-best in the world by the World Health Organization’s ranking of health systems in terms of performance. This is relevant, as people can afford to seek best-available treatment regardless of their social status/economic well-being (winking at you USA, your poor can’t afford to be sick). 3) Having one of the twenty highest spending per capita in healthcare, our healthcare system and personnel are top-notch, if chronically underfunded and currently overwhelmed by the very high number of infected patients. 4) Italy has one of the highest rates of homeownership in the world, at roughly 75%. US and UK are below 60, Germany below 50. This means people can mostly stay at home without incurring extreme costs while seeing their income limited by their inability to work. Aka: it is bad here, it will be worse elsewhere. for the poorest particularly. 5) Italians have one of the highest savings rate in the world (8% of the yearly income, estimated at some 4.300 billion Euros) due to an overall skepticism in banks and economic fluctuations. While bad for economic growth in normal times, this means median Italian families can afford to consume resources while not working/producing. Again, other countries will have it worse, with high proportions of the population unable to stop working even if ill/quarantined, or risk starvation. 6) Places with low home ownership, no public healthcare, low savings and/or overall poor economic performance/infrastructures will be hit very fucking hard. Oversaturated hospital means more people will die by no being able to get needed care in time than die of the virus. Italian hospitals are already selecting who gets to be treated and who does not base on their likelihood to survive and estimated time they will need care for. People in desperate situations, who may have been saved in ordinary periods are ALREADY dying. 7) For once, I agree with my government’s decision to shut down everything no matter the economic costs. The Chinese did that, and their infection rate is plummeting as more and more people recover. See the graph at the beginning of this post. Lastly: the virus already is a pandemic, due to it being undetected when asymptomatic, yet still able to spread. many governments are halting testing to avoid spreading panic. Shutting down and quarantining the majority of the population, avoiding interpersonal contacts as much as necessary is the only way to avoid hospital overfilling and uncontrolled panic. This is IMPERATIVE: it takes 14 days for the effects of a block to take place. If France were to enact one today (they won’t), thousands of people will still go to the hospital and hundreds will die, having been infected in the past days. Quarantine is having a significant economic impact on Italy. For many countries not as lucky as us it will be crippling, and harder to enact as people cannot afford not working. So my question to all of you who read this tedious post is: Why is YOUR government not shutting down everything? We should do more.”

    There are no good options nor ones with guarantees but at this point the talking needs to begin globally between nations and within.

    “The case for shutting down almost everything, and restarting when coronavirus is gone”
    https://tinyurl.com/rhm73tl the guardian

    “Nobody likes talking about the Covid-19 endgame, but we need to choose one. The appropriate interventions – public health, government spending, and freedom of movement – all depend on the endgame we choose. The differences between endgames amount to tens of thousands of avoidable deaths, hundreds of thousands of avoidable hospital admissions, and deep and systemic impacts on Australia’s economy and society. Many discussions are underestimating the likely political reactions when death counts rise. They are also underestimating the economic and social consequences of an open-ended epidemic that will have enormous real-world impacts on small and medium businesses, as well as many not-for-profit organisations in every sector of the economy and society. We are not facing up to the social consequences if many close, and credit markets collapse. We see three possible endgames. None are attractive, but one is better than the others. Endgame A: flatten the curve Endgame A is the plan to “flatten the curve” – restricting movements in order to lower the peak in cases, while accepting that infections will continue to grow until the epidemic has run its course. There will be many deaths…Endgame B is to trace and track every infection, something governments are trying to do. But as NSW has now discovered, with thousands of potentially infected people getting off planes every day, and little enforcement of voluntary isolation, it’s easy for untracked infection to take off, and then it becomes practically impossible for subsequent tracking to shut it down…Endgame C is to “stop then restart”. This means minimising activity and interactions, and sealing the borders to passenger traffic including citizens (although not trade), until infections are driven down to zero. Only essential services would be maintained (particularly the food supply chain and utilities such as electricity, water and the internet). There is no point trying to finesse which strategies work best; instead the imperative would be to implement as many as possible at once, including closing schools, universities, colleges, public transport and non-essential retail, and confining people to their homes as much as possible…Endgame C could offer hope Endgame C isn’t pretty. Until a vaccine is deployed – and we’re punting that there will be a vaccine – there will be no meaningful international travel, tourism or students for at least 12 months. But most of these those things won’t be happening under Endgames A or B either. At least Endgame C would allow domestic travel and tourism, hospitality, and other domestic activity once the shutdown was over. If our major trading partner – China – also successfully executes the same strategy, our major exports might continue as well. More importantly, if it is communicated clearly, Endgame C would give businesses a plausible end date.”

    “China ‘Inexcusably’ Hid Information About Coronavirus And Should Admit Their Wrongdoing”

    “While China may have finally tamped down coronavirus to manageable levels within their borders, the fact remains that they initially lied about the virus while actively suppressing early information that may have saved countless lives, according to Dr. Michael Pillsbury, Director for Chinese Strategy at the Hudson Institute and adviser to President Trump. “Everybody who wants to can just go online and look at January 14th – the WHO website. You’ll see the WHO say ‘China says there is no human-to-human transmission,'” said Pullsbury. “Now that was not true. They already knew there was human transmission. And the next day, 20 Chinese came in the White House – with President Trump, Henry Kissinger, Lou Dobbs, myself, we all saw the Chinese up close. Some of them could have been carrying it,” he added. Pillsbury then discussed the case of Wuhan doctor Li Wenliang – the whilstleblower who posted on WeChat about the new disease, only to be prosecuted by the government before later dying of the virus. Beijing is now pretending he was never punished for speaking out, and is now lionizing him as a hero”

    “Last week, Axios published a timeline of China’s lies and cover-ups regarding COVID-19 which fit perfectly with Dr. Pullsbury’s comments: Authored by Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian via Axios A study published in March indicated that if Chinese authorities had acted three weeks earlier than they did, the number of coronavirus cases could have been reduced by 95% and its geographic spread limited. This timeline, compiled from information reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the South China Morning Post and other sources, shows that China’s cover-up and the delay in serious measures to contain the virus lasted about three weeks. Dec. 10: Wei Guixian, one of the earliest known coronavirus patients, starts feeling ill. Dec. 16: Patient admitted to Wuhan Central Hospital with infection in both lungs but resistant to anti-flu drugs. Staff later learned he worked at a wildlife market connected to the outbreak. Dec. 27: Wuhan health officials are told that a new coronavirus is causing the illness. Dec. 30: Ai Fen, a top director at Wuhan Central Hospital, posts information on WeChat about the new virus. She was reprimanded for doing so and told not to spread information about it. Wuhan doctor Li Wenliang also shares information on WeChat about the new SARS-like virus. He is called in for questioning shortly afterward. Wuhan health commission notifies hospitals of a “pneumonia of unclear cause” and orders them to report any related information. Dec. 31: Wuhan health officials confirm 27 cases of illness and close a market they think is related to the virus’ spread. China tells the World Health Organization’s China office about the cases of an unknown illness. Jan. 1: Wuhan Public Security Bureau brings in for questioning eight doctors who had posted information about the illness on WeChat. An official at the Hubei Provincial Health Commission orders labs, which had already determined that the novel virus was similar to SARS, to stop testing samples and to destroy existing samples. Jan. 2: Chinese researchers map the new coronavirus’ complete genetic information. This information is not made public until Jan. 9. Jan. 7: Xi Jinping becomes involved in the response. Jan. 9: China announces it has mapped the coronavirus genome. Jan. 11–17: Important prescheduled CCP meeting held in Wuhan. During that time, the Wuhan Health Commission insists there are no new cases. Jan. 13: First coronavirus case reported in Thailand, the first known case outside China. Jan. 14: WHO announces Chinese authorities have seen “no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus.” Jan. 15: The patient who becomes the first confirmed U.S. case leaves Wuhan and arrives in the U.S., carrying the coronavirus. Jan. 18: The Wuhan Health Commission announces four new cases. Annual Wuhan Lunar New Year banquet. Tens of thousands of people gathered for a potluck. Jan. 19: Beijing sends epidemiologists to Wuhan. Jan. 20: The first case announced in South Korea. Zhong Nanshan, a top Chinese doctor who is helping to coordinate the coronavirus response, announces the virus can be passed between people. Jan. 21: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirms the first coronavirus case in the United States. CCP flagship newspaper People’s Daily mentions the coronavirus epidemic and Xi’s actions to fight it for the first time. China’s top political commission in charge of law and order warns that “anyone who deliberately delays and hides the reporting of [virus] cases out of his or her own self-interest will be nailed on the pillar of shame for eternity.” Jan. 23: Wuhan and three other cities are put on lockdown. Right around this time, approximately 5 million people leave the city without being screened for the illness. Jan. 24–30: China celebrates the Lunar New Year holiday. Hundreds of millions of people are in transit around the country as they visit relatives. Jan. 24: China extends the lockdown to cover 36 million people and starts to rapidly build a new hospital in Wuhan. From this point, very strict measures continue to be implemented around the country for the rest of the epidemic. The bottom line: China is now trying to create a narrative that it’s an example of how to handle this crisis when in fact its early actions led to the virus spreading around the globe.”

    “The Global Economy Won’t Bounce Back Soon”
    https://tinyurl.com/qwbjv7w lacalle at mises

    “Calls for large fiscal packages to offset the pandemic may be useless. Allen-Reynolds at Capital Economics warned that “even if governments agreed on a larger tax and spending package, the economic impact would be much smaller than it would have been in the past, particularly if the fiscal stimulus was concentrated in Germany,” because output gaps are almost inexistent. This is not a demand problem; it is a supply shock, and you don’t address supply shocks with bricks, mortar, and deficit spending…The shutdown of developed economies is now granted and will likely take us more than a couple of weeks afield. The shutdown of emerging economies is likely to start in May and to impact 2020 and 2021 estimates. Every analysis we have seen so far only factors in a 2020 recession, not a crisis, and even less a large 2021 hit to the economy, but the financial implications in an already overleveraged world add a string of credit events to an economic shutdown…The latest wave of downgrades already assumes a large-scale stimulus, rate cuts, and quantitative easing. The diminishing returns of monetary easing were already evident in 2018 and especially in 2019, with global manufacturing purchasing managers’ indexes (PMIs) in contraction and growth estimates coming down significantly throughout the year…The economic implications of a pandemic will not be solved with massive spending increases. Governments will implement large demand-side policies that are the wrong answer to a shutdown of the economy. Most businesses will suffer from the collapse in sales and subsequent working capital build, and none of that will be solved with deficit spending. You cannot mitigate a supply shock with demand policies, which increase debt and overcapacity in the already indebted and bloated sectors and do not help the sectors that are suffering an abrupt collapse in activity…A forced temporary shutdown must also include a shutdown of the tax collection system. Governments already finance themselves at negative rates. They must eliminate (not defer) tax payments for companies in the period of crisis to avoid a massive unemployment increase and a domino of bankruptcies and facilitate working capital lines at zero rates to allow businesses and self-employed workers to navigate a shutdown. Governments that make the mistake of maintaining the current tax structure or who just prolong the payment period for six months will see the massive negative consequences of a shutdown in the next nine months. If, as expected, the shutdown is extended to more countries every week, the negative effects on the economy will be longer and exponential, and the mirage of a third-quarter recovery even less likely. It is very likely that the shutdown of major developed economies will be followed by a shutdown of emerging markets, creating a supply shock as we have not seen in decades. Taking massive inflationary and demand-driven measures in a supply shock is not only a mistake, it is the recipe for stagflation and guarantees a multi-year negative impact generated by rising debt, weakening productivity, rising inflation in nonreplicable goods while deflation creeps into official headlines, and economic stagnation.”

    Richard, I already had the Covid years ago and this is why I tell people it ain’t shit. All I had was the shits and lots of gas. It didn’t spread because I stayed drunk the whole time suppressing the virus. I am now immune and ready to tell everyone my story that the virus ain’t shit. The economy is fine and my life will not be impacted at all. Nothing has changed. Quit your whining people.

    Davy, I think that your posting links to China bashing ZH articles predicting the immediate Chinese collapse for over five freaking years is completely hilarious. I wish you could see how foolish your behavior is. There is no bigger fool than that which cannot learn from his mistakes. I expect that you will keep posting shit like that until you die. If stupid is as stupid does then you are the stupidest person I have come across in my whole life, Exceptionalist. ROFLMFAO!
