Two strategic errors in facing Covid-19 by Thierry Meyssan

Two strategic errors in facing Covid-19

by Thierry Meyssan

Western countries succumbed to panic in the face of the Covid-19 epidemic. Turning irrational, they committed two strategic errors: confining their healthy population at the risk of destroying their economy, and betting everything on MRA vaccines to the detriment of health care, or even at the risk of causing particular disorders due to this new vaccine technique.

Communication: Covid and war

Covid-19 is a viral disease causing the death, in the worst case, of 0.001% of the population. The average age of death from Covid-19 in developed states is about 80 years, with a median age of about 83 years.

In comparison, countries at war experience an additional mortality, due to war, that is 5 to 8 times higher, but mainly affects males aged 18 to 30. To this must be added emigration of up to 50.00% of the population.

The Covid epidemic and war are therefore two situations that are out of all proportion, despite the apocalyptic rhetoric that confuses them [1]. Moreover, the response of those who have ventured to make this dramatic comparison has not borrowed anything, in terms of mobilisation, from those of war situations. At most, a mobile military hospital was required to take a few photos of uniforms in action. Its only real effect was to panic the population and thus deprive it of its critical spirit.

Origin of the communication error

This comparison was made on the basis of erroneous information. A British statistician, whose mathematical models had been used to justify the European hospital reduction policy, Neil Ferguson, had indeed predicted more than half a million deaths in his own country and as many in France.

This scientist was unaware that a virus is a living being that does not seek to kill its hosts, but to inhabit them like a parasite. If it kills the man it has infected, it dies with him. This is why all viral epidemics are at first very deadly, and then less and less so as the virus varies and adapts to humans. It is therefore completely ridiculous to extrapolate its lethality from the devastation it causes in the first weeks of the epidemic.

Political leaders are not connoisseurs of everything. They must have a general culture that enables them to distinguish the quality of their experts in different fields. Neil Ferguson is one of those scientists who demonstrate what is asked of them, not those who seek to understand unexplained phenomena. His curriculum vitœ is just a long succession of errors commissioned by politicians and denied by the facts [2]. He was eventually dismissed from the British Cobra Council (Cabinet Office Briefing Rooms), but one of his disciples, Simon Cauchemez of the Pasteur Institute, still sits on the French Scientific Council.

First strategic error: lockdown, a variable for adjusting health policies

Faced with the scourge of Covid, developed States have reacted by enacting border closures, curfews, administrative closures of companies, and even generalized lockdown of the population.

This was a first in history: never before had generalised lockdown – i.e. confinement of healthy populations – been used to combat an epidemic. This political measure is very costly from an educational, psychological, medical, social and economic point of view. Its effectiveness is limited to interrupting the spread of the disease in healthy families during containment at the cost of its dissemination in families where a person is already infected. When the confinement is lifted, the spread of the virus immediately resumes in healthy families.

As all developed States have progressively reduced their hospital capacities since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, most governments have adopted containment measures, not to control disease – which they cannot – but to prevent overcrowding in their hospitals. In other words, in order to continue their system of managing public health services, governments consider containment as the only possible adjustment variable. Yet the price of these confinements is much higher than more expensive hospital management. Above all, the ageing of the population in developed States makes it foreseeable that the same crisis of hospital congestion will occur every three to four years, the usual cycle of epidemics of all kinds. In practice, the use of containment condemns the countries concerned to resort to it more and more often, during epidemics of Covid, influenza or many other deadly diseases.

A comparative study by Stanford University, published on January 12, 2021, shows that countries that have practised widespread plant closures, curfews and containment have not ultimately influenced the spread of the disease, which they have only delayed, compared to countries that have respected the freedom of their citizens [3].

Contrary to popular belief, the choice was not between hospital overcrowding or containment, but between mobilizing or even requisitioning private clinics and containment. All developed countries have a private health care system that is largely capable of dealing with the overflow of patients.

Origin of the strategic error

The source behind the lockdown is CEPI (Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations). This association was created in Davos on the occasion of the 2015 World Economic Forum. It is headed by Dr Richard J. Hatchett. You will not find his biography on Wikipedia or even on the CEPI website. He had it removed.

This man was the designer of the Healthy Person Containment for the US Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld [4]. In 2005, this member of President George W. Bush’s National Security Council was tasked with adapting US military procedures to the civilian population as part of a plan to militarise US society. Since IMs stationed abroad were instructed to confine themselves to their bases in the event of a biological terrorist attack against them, he advocated confining the entire civilian population to their homes in the event of a biological attack on US soil. This military plan was unanimously rejected by US doctors, led by Professor Donald Henderson of Johns Hopkins University. They stressed that doctors had never confined healthy populations before.

Professor Richard J. Hatchett was the first to draw a comparison between the Covid-19 epidemic and a war, in an interview on Channel 4 a few days before President Macron. His first CEPI donation, of course, was to Imperial College London. The director of this venerable institution is not British, but American, Alice Gast. In addition to being a director of the transnational oil company Chevron, she worked with Dr Richard J. Hatchett in the United States to mobilise scientists against terrorism. She supported propaganda work to discredit what I had written about the September 11th attacks. In addition, one of the most famous professors at Imperial College is Neil Ferguson, the author of the fairy-tale curves projecting the spread of the epidemic.

Messenger RNA” vaccines only have the name “vaccine” in common with conventional vaccines. The idea is no longer to inoculate a small quantity of the virus to provoke the creation of antibodies, but to play with the genetic material of patients so that they are no longer receptive to the virus.

Second strategic mistake: the exclusive focus of research on vaccines

Faced with this new epidemic, doctors found themselves without treatment. Western governments immediately directed medical research towards the discovery of appropriate vaccines.

In view of the sums involved, they directed all budgets towards genetic vaccines and closed research into pathology and care.

The use of the RNA-based vaccine technique, chosen by Moderna/NIAID, Pfizer/BioNTech/FosunPharma and CureVac, is not expected to involve classical side effects, but it is not without danger. Until now, this technique has been considered with great caution because it affects the genetic make-up of patients. This is why, in the absence of sufficient studies, these companies have demanded that their state clients relieve them of any legal liability.

Doctors who try to practise their art by treating their patients according to the Hippocratic oath have been prosecuted by their disciplinary bodies. The treatments they have implemented have been ridiculed, even banned, instead of being evaluated.

This is the second strategic error.

Western doctors, who, with rare exceptions, have never been confronted with the demands of war and disaster medicine, sometimes panicked. At the beginning of the epidemic, some did nothing at the first symptoms, waiting for the appearance of a cytokinic storm, of a brutal inflammation, to plunge their patients into an artificial coma. As a result, it was more often inappropriate care than the disease that killed the first patients. The disastrous results of some hospitals compared to others in the same region bear witness to this, despite the fraternal ban on criticism of incompetent doctors.

The gigantic budgets allocated to vaccines make it necessary not to discover a treatment without risking the bankruptcy of multinational pharmaceutical companies.

This is why all research in this field has been subjected to strict censorship. Yet a cocktail of blood-liquefying, immune-stimulating, antiviral and anti-inflammatory drugs is being tested in Asia, which treats almost all patients if administered at the first sign of symptoms. Similarly, in Venezuela, the medical and pharmacological authority has approved a drug, Carvativir, which, according to the authority, treats almost all patients if administered at the first sign of symptoms [5].

As I am not competent in this area, I will not comment on these treatments, but it is frightening that Western doctors are not informed about them and have not had the opportunity to evaluate them.

The Pasteur Institute of Lille and the company APTEEUS, for their part, in September 2020, identified a drug that had fallen into disuse as preventing the replication of the virus. They were careful not to advertise it so as not to have to face the rivalry of the vaccine industry. Their experiments are now coming to an end. The manufacture of this drug, originally a suppository for children, has resumed in France so that it could be advertised soon [6].

Moreover, censorship of non-Western medicines is not only unacceptable because it is detrimental to human health, but also because it is carried out by unelected powers (Google, Facebook, Twitter etc.). The problem here is not whether these treatments are effective or not, but to free up research so that it can study these molecules in order to reject, approve or improve them.

Origin of the second strategic mistake

Incidentally, let us observe that there is a strategic contradiction between slowing down contamination through the practice of confining healthy people and accelerating it through the generalisation of live or inactivated vaccines. However, this remark is not valid in the case of RNA vaccines, which are destined to become predominant in the West.

The second strategic error is the result of group thinking. Politicians imagine that only technical progress will provide solutions to problems that cannot be solved. Thus, if vaccines can be discovered using a new technique based not on viruses but on “messenger RNA”, the epidemic should be defeated. It no longer occurs to anyone that we can treat the Covid and do without heavy investment.

This is the ideology of the World Economic Forum in Davos and the CEPI. It is therefore in the order of things that governments do not react when transnationals censor the work of Asian or Venezuelan doctors, blocking the freedom of scientific research.

HOW INDIAN WINDOWS SCAMMERS HARASS PUBLIC & AN AUSTRALIAN GETS EVEN

Article For Public Interest of Pakistani Americans

HOW INDIAN WINDOWS SCAMMERS HARASS AMERICAN PUBLIC & AN AMERICAN GETS EVEN

 I called a scamming call center in India where they try to help you “remove a virus” on your computer by installing one themselves and stealing your identity. Messing with these scumbags was so fun for me to do, hit that Like button and share the video with a friend if you enjoyed it too! 😆  😆 

 

VIRUS PHONE SCAM BEING RUN FROM CALL CENTRES IN INDIA

Britons targeted by cold callers pretending to be from Microsoft phoning to fix a fake computer problem

Beware cold callers – especially those claiming your computer has a virus. Photograph: Corbis

The scam always starts the same way: the phone rings at someone’s home, and the caller – usually with an Indian accent – asks for the householder, quoting their name and address before saying “I’m calling for Microsoft. We’ve had a report from your internet service provider of serious virus problems from your computer.”

Dire forecasts are made that if the problem is not solved, the computer will become unusable.

The puzzled owner is then directed to their computer, and asked to open a program called “Windows Event Viewer”. Its contents are, to the average user, worrying: they look like a long list of errors, some labelled “critical”. “Yes, that’s it,” says the caller. “Now let me guide you through the steps to fixing it.”

The computer owner is directed to a website and told to download a program that hands over remote control of the computer, and the caller “installs” various “fixes” for the problem. And then it’s time to pay a fee: £185 for a “subscription” to the “preventative service”.

The only catch: there was never anything wrong with the computer, the caller is not working for Microsoft or the internet service provider, and the owner has given a complete stranger access to every piece of data on their machine.

An investigation by the Guardian has established that this scam, which has been going on quietly since 2008 but has abruptly grown in scale this year, is being run from call centres based in Kolkata, by teams believed to have access to sales databases from computer and software companies.

Matt, a Londoner who has recently set up his own company, had just arrived home at 7pm when the phone rang and someone with an Indian accent asked for him by name, quoting his address. “It’s Windows tech support here,” said the caller. “We have reason to believe that there’s a problem with your computer. There have been downloads of malware and spyware, and they’re slowing down your computer.”

He went along with the caller’s demands to log into a website and enter a six-digit code into his computer. “I thought it was a new service from [Microsoft] Windows,” he said. “I could see them moving the cursor about. It took about half an hour.”

The caller could not have obtained Matt’s name via HP or PC World, where he bought the machine, because he gave his business address, not his home address, during the purchase.

This suggests that the caller was using the phonebook to find names. Patrick McCarthy, who lives in Dublin, received a call from one of the companies – but they addressed him by the name of the apartment block where he lives instead of his own name, a longstanding error in the Irish phone book.

Often, the victims are inexperienced or elderly, convinced by the apparent authority of the callers and the worrying contents of the Event Viewer. In fact, such “errors” are not indicative of any problems.

Investigators who have spoken to the Guardian on condition of anonymity say that one man, based in the city of Kota in Rajasthan, is behind the centres running the scams.

He has provided fake documentation to a number of payment companies including PayPal and Alertpay, a Montreal-based online payment company, to set up accounts which route money to a bank account in Kota with Axis Bank.

Though people on dozens of web forums have recorded their experiences with the scammers, police and trading standards officers in the UK are powerless to stop them.

UK telephone numbers for contacting the company on the sites are not “geographical” ‑ tied to a location ‑ but instead allocated to voice-over-internet providers.

That means that the calls connect internationally, but cost the scammers almost nothing when anyone calls them.

In the same way, it costs them virtually nothing to make the calls because the international part of the call goes via the internet.

If the payment has been made on a debit card ‑ as many are ‑ there is no hope of reversing the payment. A number of payment organisations used by the scammers have shut down their accounts. PayPal, the eBay-owned credit transfer company, and AlertPay have both taken rapid action against scam sites which used them.

In March, site hosting company Hostgator shut down one of the longest-running sites used for the alleged scam, F1Compstepuk.com, after complaints.

After confirming with Microsoft that the site was not acting for it, Hostgator immediately shut it down. Josh Loe, Hostgator’s co-founder, said that following the initial complaint, “we asked for more information regarding this to confirm. We received a message from a Microsoft representative via this particular person who contacted us first about this. At that time it was enough evidence to close the site and it was done so the same day.”

But one investigator who has been tracking the growth of the scam says the challenge is that new sites offering the same fake “service” keep popping up “like mushrooms”.

At first the scammers tried desperately to maintain the reputation of their sites, by flooding any forum which garnered enough criticism of their activities with postings claiming that the site helped fix their machine.

But the poor spelling and grammar of the replies – allied to internet addresses which show that the commenters are based in India – contrasted sharply with that of people in the UK, US and Australia complaining about the attempted scam.

Now they have shifted to creating multiple sites from templates, using stock phrases and photos. However, investigators are sure that the same man ‑ and central operation ‑ is behind all of the schemes. “I don’t think that this could really have spread that far. Even if they can see that some of their friends are making money from this, the calls are too similar every time,” said one. “It’s got to be the same organisation each time.”

Microsoft denies any connection with the companies that call people up offering these services.

When contacted about the scams, Microsoft said it was “currently investigating a series of instances in which the business practices of an organisation within the Microsoft Partner Network [that] have given rise to significant concerns from a number of sources. We take matters such as these extremely seriously and will take any action that is appropriate once our investigation is complete.”

Three weeks after being contacted by the Guardian, it issued another statement: “We confirm that we have taken action to terminate our relationship with certain partners who are clearly misrepresenting their relationship with us and using our company name in order to facilitate their telephone scam operations.”

However, this week, two sites alleged to be involved were still listed as “Microsoft Gold Certified Partners”, which Microsoft says means that they must have “demonstrated expertise” and “must employ a minimum number of Microsoft Certified Professionals”.

The company has noticed the problem. “Microsoft does not make unsolicited phone calls to help you fix your computer,” it says on its website.

“If you receive an unsolicited call from someone claiming to be from Microsoft Tech Support, hang up. We do not make these kinds of calls.”

 

Computer Screen WarningThey’re baaaack!

No, not poltergeists. Scammers. And they want your last penny.

We’ve written before about tech support scams — where a caller claims that your computer has a terrible virus and needs immediate attention. The scammer asks for remote access and then charges you for “fixing” a problem that wasn’t there.

Now, they’re working the phones again, and they claim that if you paid for tech support services, they can get you a refund. We’ve heard about several variations of this scam:

  • They might ask if you were happy with the service. If you say no (and you probably will), they claim they can get you a refund.
  • Or they might say that the company is going out of business and providing refunds to people who already paid.

Once they’ve got you hooked, they claim that they need your bank or credit card account number to process the refund.

They might say that you need to create a Western Union account to receive the money. They may even offer to help you fill out the necessary forms — if you give them remote access to your computer. But instead of transferring money to your account, the scammer withdraws money from your account.

So, what can you do if you paid for bogus tech support services?

  • File a complaint at ftc.gov/complaint.
  • If you paid with a credit card, call your credit card company and ask them to reverse the charges.
  • Hang up on callers who offer a refund in exchange for your bank or credit card account number or a Western Union account.

FOHA RAZA: Carmudi.pk and Easy Taxi present the E-Commerce Transport and Automobile Conference 2014 [Lahore, 27th October, 2014]

Carmudi.pk and Easy Taxi present the E-Commerce Transport and Automobile Conference 2014

 

[Lahore, 27th October, 2014]: Easy Taxi and Carmudi recently held the E-commerce Transport and Automobile Conference 2014, to promote and educate the general public about the benefits, success, and growth of ecommerce in Pakistan through the recent years. The conference was a showcase presenting the ecommerce growth in Pakistan that is revolutionizing the automobile and transport industry holistically.

unnamedThe event was attended by people from all walks of life including prominent media personalities, bloggers, distinguished ecommerce players, as well as students from various educational institutions. Some prominent speakers at the event included West Asia Managing Director for Easy Taxi, Mr Leonardo Schmidt Boz; Country Manager Pakistan for Carmudi.pk, Mr Ali Izhar; and Managing Director of Asia Region for Kaymu.com Mr Ahmed Khan.

unnamed-1According to the date provided by World Bank and quoted by the State Bank of Pakistan; in the year 2007 the e-commerce growth rate stood at 10% and increased to 16% by 2012 giving it a 6% jump in 5 years resulting in an average growth of 1.2% every year. By this data, the rise in ecommerce in Pakistan is expected to see a jump of 12% in the next ten years. With numbers rising this high; online portals are becoming increasingly essential in everyday life and portals like Easy Taxi and Carmudi are some of the first ones to take on expansion of ecommerce for the benefit of Pakistan as an emerging market.

The event was also attended by Easy Taxi’s country manager Mr Adam Ghaznavi. Commenting on Pakistan’s ecommerce revolution he stated, “We have come a long way in a short span of time. While there is still immense potential in the market to grow, we are on the right track. At Easy Taxi we are proud to be playing our part in helping Pakistan’s ecommerce sector grow.”

While speaking during the conference, Carmudi’s Country Manager Pakistan Mr Ali Izhar commented, “Carmudi is bringing in more transparency into the market as we are aggregating the whole market in one place and can thus guarantee the best prices. If a hundred cars of the same make and model are offered on our site, Carmudi.pk, for approximately the same price, you can assume that it is fair as it reflects the market. To this end, today, we are very excited to collaborate with Easy Taxi and help promote e-commerce by pitching in our two cents to revolutionize the automotive industry in Pakistan”.

The ecommerce sector in Pakistan still has a long way to go, but experts believe that the industry is still growing. It is bridging the gap between the consumer and the markets increasing accessibility and ease to purchase. The launch of 3G and 4G services is expected to expedite this growth.

AN INVITATION TO ALL PAKISTANIS AND THEIR GLOBAL FRIENDS TO PUBLISH IN PAKISTAN THINK TANK

Our address for submitting articles:

agamjd@gmail.com

 

Submit Articles to agamjd@gmail.com

Pakistan Think Tank is  fighting the Battle of the Pen. It is a Battle of Hearts and Minds.   We are dedicated to the proposition that: Pakistan belongs to its 180 million

down-trodden people. It is not a Jagir of Wadweras, Zamindars, Jagirdars, Bureaucrats, and unscrupulous and corrupt industrialists turned politicians.

That  Pakistan’s leaders are not going to be allowed to get away with it unopposed and unchallenged. The Jagirdars, Waderas, Land Mafia, Bhatha mafia, Drug Mafia are well-organized, well-financed, and very focused.

They know what they want: a renewal of the Age of Corruption, increased spending so graft and corruption can flourish, nurtured by gradiose projects like Karachi to Peshawer Super Highway (which is a dream of all Thekedars like Nawaz Sharif, Asif Zardari, Asfandyar Wali, Mulla Diesel Fazlur Rehman, Malik Riaz, Uwais Tappi,

and Drug Smugglers turned Mall Builders like Mirza Iqbal. Their mission is to penetrate all aspect of Pakistan’s economy and rob the country blind.

And they know how to do it: mobilizing special interest groups and key corporate allies in a propaganda war designed to win the hearts if not the minds of the Pakistani people.

The Anti-Feudal and Pakistani loving forces, on the other hand, are not so well-positioned. 

Lacking a centrally coordinated leadership, without financial resources of any significance, and incredibly diverse, the organized opposition to the Jagirdarana Nizam has been

unfocused and of limited effectiveness. Currently, the Anti-Feudal Forces against Land Grabbing and Political Maladministration is considered Anti-Pakistan and

portrayed as such Feudal-Owned Media Power Houses . One Hundred and Eighty Million Pakistanis are their victims for the last 65 years.

However, we are changing this perception by leading the cause of the patriotic silent majority movement, which understands the the malaise of Pakistani society.

Unfortunately, the organizations controlled by Feudal/Industrial/Bureaucratic Axis

are stronger and better focused.

Pakistan Think Tank has become an integral part of the movement against these groups and for honesty and social justice for all, by disseminating accurate news and commentary.

Pakistan Think Tank is dedicated to building an awareness of the globalist and interventionist forces that would enslave us all in a New World Order on which the sun never sets.

But we can’t do it without you.

Tell your friends about Pakistan Think Tank Organization, and also help us do our job by bringing items to our attention. We are always looking for material, and we welcome your suggestions,

whether of links or in the form of original articles submitted to the editors.
