      The Great Lockdown is coming (unfortunately, since it could have been avoided, but the new wishy-washy approach has sealed the country’s fate, no doubt)

    The FDA today joined The WHO and Dr.Fauci in admitting there is a notable risk of false results from the standard PCR-Test used to define whether an individual is a COVID “Case” or not.

    This matters significantly as it fits perfectly with the ‘fake rescue’ plan we have previously described would occur once the Biden admin took office. But before we get to that ‘conspiracy’, we need a little background on how the world got here.

    Thailand might as well throw darts at a board to get their daily figures.
    Everyone knows the virus has spread.
    Saving face as usual so they can still be a WHO poster child.

      What virus?

      The one that has supposedly claimed the lives of a whopping 65 people?

      The media is the virus.
