The Democrat-media complex and their Deep States allies have elevated the Wuhan virus crisis to virtually a mass hysteria over the past couple of weeks. Their goal is transparent, of course: to instill fear, to tank the economy, and to ascribe blame for everything on President Trump as a means of setting the table to take him out in the November election since their impeachment farce (and other gambits) have failed to get the job done beforehand. And the Chinese Communists are happy that the Deep State are leveraging the Wuhan virus toward that end because they’d like to be rid of President Trump, too, as he’s put a big crimp in their Made in China 2025 plans thanks to the US tariffs that forced China to sign Phase I of the trade deal (NOT what they were expecting!).

But the reasons go far beyond simply getting rid of President Trump and include sweeping past Deep State crimes under the rug and “returning to business as usual.” Let us examine these reasons and the present crisis in greater detail, as their activities are purposeful, inter-related, methodical, and diabolical.

Many people wonder why those working in federal agencies – especially those who were politically-appointed – were involved in the crimes that we have only just begun to see exposed in the DoJ, FBI, IRS, State Department, etc. What motivated them all to do what they had to at least subconsciously know were criminal acts? After all, giving one’s life towards “service to the country” is supposed to be a noble endeavor – or at least that’s what the political elite, legacy media megaphones, and others have been telling us for decades, isn’t it?

Except that, in the Age of Trump, we’re finding out that many of these people – especially those in the upper echelons of federal law enforcement agencies – aren’t as altruistic as we have been led to believe. In fact, many of them are down-right crooks! I am still shocked by the DoJ Inspector General’s report on FISA abuse and the subsequent revelations/determinations by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that the Obama-era FBI and DoJ defrauded the court. These were “officers of the court” who willfully committed the crimes! If they all don’t receive harsh justice, then there is no such thing as justice in America anymore. It’s as simple as that.

Why did they commit the crimes? The Deep State cabal (multi-agency) is in it for fame, fortune, power, and career. Some even purport to be driven by globalist ideology or Marxism. We are finding out once again that money is the root of all evil, and the flood of illicit money influencing the behavior of the political class and their complicit Deep State partners in the federal bureaucracy is shocking. Consider some of the sources of money that have corrupted DC over the past decades, some of which are put in the context of the Wuhan crisis here:

1. Lobbyists for every major industry in the United States trying to influence federal regulatory policies to benefit their clients, including the pharmaceutical industry (vaccines and drug treatments)

2. Globalists and multi-national corporations who have created the global supply chains that are now transmission belts for contagion like the Wuhan virus (and who also helped transfer US manufacturing and production to China!)

3. China which has spent hundreds of millions of dollars in corrupting the US political class (Clintons, DiFi, Bidens, McConnell/Chao, the legacy media, Hollywood, Academia, and many others); we are seeing a massive campaign by the ChiComs – aided by the US media – to blame the US for the origins of the Wuhan virus (the ChiComs are collecting on their investments!)

4. Other foreign countries seeking to influence US foreign policy and economic initiatives around the world (Russia, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, UK, etc.)

5. Laundering of millions of dollars of US foreign aid through corrupt countries back to the political class themselves

The key players in the political class go in and out of government as presidential administrations change, but those in policy-making positions in particular leverage their insider knowledge and access for their personal benefit. The “experts” we see in congressional hearings, in newspaper op-eds, and in TV interviews are those who are in fact experts at fleecing the rest of us. And the senior people in the federal bureaucracy have been politically and monetarily corrupted over the years by the political class, as well. For example, James Comey spent time in the defense industry to pad his personal investment portfolio, as the Center for Responsive Politics notes here:

In 2005, Comey left law enforcement for the defense industry, joining money-in-politics powerhouse Lockheed Martin. As senior vice president and general counsel he earned more than $6 million in compensation in his last full year with the company.

To mix metaphors, Comey’s career is just the tip of the revolving door iceberg, as this happens ALL THE TIME. These people all get their paybacks in the private sector between stints in the federal bureaucracy. Therefore, there is much at stake when someone from outside the political class is elected president, as all of the schemes to fleece taxpayers and keep the money flowing to the political class, their families, their cronies, and their donors are placed at risk. This is why we have seen endless – and increasingly desperate – attempts by the Deep State to “get Trump” over the past three-and-a-half years. These people want to return to “business as usual.” There are literally trillions of dollars at stake over the long haul.

This is precisely the reason why the Democrats and their lickspittle media are weaponizing the Wuhan virus crisis. It is yet another overt attempt on their part to take out the president. Compare their hysterical actions over the past few weeks to the virtual silence during the 2009 H1N1 swine flu epidemic. Obama didn’t even declare a national emergency until over 1,000 Americans had died of the disease, yet President Trump has been repeatedly castigated for his supposedly “chaotic response” to the Wuhan virus. For context purposes, here is what the CDC says about the H1N1 pandemic from their website:

From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus.

Where was the mass hysteria in 2009? There wasn’t any because the Democrat Party and legacy media weren’t trying to take out their tin god president. To the contrary, because Obama was a globalist member of the political class feeding at the same money troughs bulletized above, they have spent every moment of every day since he was elected in 2008 covering for his disastrous policies and presidency.

There are more comparisons that also help expose that the Deep State is quite obviously weaponizing of the Wuhan virus against President Trump. While there have been roughly 60 deaths in the US with less than 3,000 confirmed cases among Americans so far, contrast those numbers with these statistics:

And these are the worldwide Wuhan virus statistics as of today:

  • Confirmed cases: 162,593
  • Deaths: 6,089
  • Recovered: 76,219

That works out to a tiny, tiny fraction of the world’s nearly 7.7 billion people. And note the number of recovered cases worldwide, too. Doesn’t exactly look like the Wuhan virus is the “Mr. Death” of Stephen King’s The Stand just yet, despite the thinly veiled hopes of the Democrat-media complex.

The Trump administration and all of the states have fully activated their public health organizations and systems in response to the pandemic, just as we would expect them to do. Even some Democrat governors have praised the federal response to their various requests for assistance. Yet, Democrats like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi keep trying to spin chaos and paranoia. They are transparent.

The Deep State and Democrat-media complex public responses to the Wuhan flu are of-a-piece with their other actions to try to take out President Trump. We need to keep in mind that they have been wrong about everything in that regard since Election Day 2016, as well as having politicized and spun virtually all of the daily “news” since then in an anti-Trump fashion. Why should we now believe that they are suddenly reporting everything accurately at this particular moment in time? They have cried “wolf” far too many times.

Despite what the Deep State and Democrat-media complex would apparently like us all to believe, catching the Wuhan virus is not a death sentence, and prudent personal measures can be taken to minimize the probability of contracting the virus and minimizing its effects. Visit the CDC website for more information and what you should personally do. Even the World Health Organization provides some useful Q&A type information on the Wuhan virus on their website here.

And keep in mind that the Deep State and Democrat-media complex have ulterior motives for creating mass hysteria. Real Americans don’t want to tank the economy, but they do, and that’s all we really need to know. They are definitely not motivated by altruism, but rather by political and personal gain.

The end.
