What's Really Going On In 2020?

Updated: Nov 22, 2020

There's so much information coming at us all at once and it's hard to know what to

think of all of it--much less, who to trust. Should we even pay attention anymore when everything going on around us is so negative and convoluted?

I say yes and I'll tell you why. The things going on in our world, especially today, effect every citizen's future and the futures of those who come after us. So, if you would like to read on, I would like to give you some facts and some perspective of the events of 2020 and the perceived implications of these events. Many of these things I hope will be avoided and not come to be but, nonetheless, my observations and months of in-depth research have unfortunately given me ample reason to consider these things highly possible.

For the sake of time, I will do my best to keep it within the realm of the year 2020. I would encourage anyone who is interested, to stay tuned for my upcoming post, "Conquest or Consent", which will dig deeper into other relevant events leading up to 2020--because unfortunately, all of this runs much deeper and is more complex than most realize. It's important for people to be aware of the reality of the world in which we are living and not blindly accept the "reality" we are been conditioned to live in--because those who are willing to face the truth may actually be able to have a say in it.

I encourage you to do your own research--that's the only reason I am so sure of what I will share with you. The information I am attempting to lay out is difficult for most people to accept as reality at first. I've waited to write this post because I couldn't wrap my head around where I would start or how I would explain all these complexities. This situation we have in our world in 2020 is an unprecedented and far reaching pool of corruption and evil. I recently started researching DARPA and I believe I've found the last piece of the puzzle that ties my argument together: the implementation of 5g technology...bear with me.


An investigative study by the Association of French Reserve Army Officers has come to light in the recent months that--to me--is the final nail in the coffin of this scheme known as the Covid-19 Pandemic. Here's an excerpt from the report:


Findings of the Investigative Report1

On The Covid-19 Pandemic and its Relationship to SARS-CoV-2 and Other Factors


  • Glaring inconsistencies and inexplicable "lacunae" ('gap') invalidate the official theory

  • The management of the health “crisis" seems to be a pretext for a totalitarian global takeover

  • Totalitarian machinations: intention to impose a global cryptocurrency, a vaccine with nano-chips and a subcutaneous electronic chip

  • There is massive corruption at the heart of WHO and the most unavowable intentions (see section: WHO)

  • 5G is implicated in Covid-19, with electromagnetic radiation having possibly highly potentiated: The pathogenic power of the virus, or The Prevotella bacterium that caused the cytokine shock.

  • Similarity between the lung damage observed by all emergency doctors and damage caused by the use of an electromagnetic weapon (plus permanent headaches, fatigue, burning sensations in the lungs, thrombosis and loss of sensitivity to smell and taste, also cited as symptoms of COVID-19).

  • Many antennas were installed thanks to the lockdown, without concern for the "precautionary principle", despite it being otherwise widely cited, in particular to hobble medical treatment

  • "Covid-19" is a biological and electromagnetic war supported by a vast "smoke-and-mirrors" operation, which is sowing confusion among the ranks of medical and hospital personnel.

  • "Covid-19" could be the preparation for a much larger-scale joint operation combined with a smokescreen to conceal large-scale tests of the 5G weapon, for criminal ends that remain to be clarified.

  • 5G installations, both terrestrial and aerial (Elon Musk's satellites in low-Earth orbit), are clearly part of this "total war" project.

  • Dr. Jeremy K. Raines, an authoritative electromagnetic field engineer, reports that signals are used by the human body to regulate its processes, and warns that external electromagnetic signals can seriously interfere in this process.

  • No investigation has been carried out on the reaction of the Earth to the massive use of 5G technology despite it having been established that industrial activities (mining activities, oil and gas extraction, geothermal) can induce earthquakes.

  • Unusual earthquakes have taken place in France and municipalities have been declared to be in a state of emergency.


The Investigation Group formally advocates the creation of a permanent "CBRN Study Group" [chemical, biological, radiation and nuclear], aimed at studying biological agents and pathological electromagnetic radiation, for the purpose of giving populations the means to protect themselves from the possible widespread use of 5G technologies which, once in place and turned up to high power, would inevitably result in carnage, especially if they are combined with pathogenic injections in vaccine form and aerial spraying (chemtrails) of endocrine disruptors or viral agents.

Below are a few of the tables included in this report showing the effects of increased electromagnetic radiation frequency on humans:

This report is important and should be shared with the public.. As further confirmation of the suspicions raised, despite the authors being prohibited from publishing the report, they decided the content was too groundbreaking not to share with the world and subsequently leaked it to the public. The report goes on later to explain the following:


The Association of Army Reserve Officers spent 50 days investigating issues related to the 2020 "pandemic". The report has been prohibited from disclosure for the time being. However, in view of the urgency and seriousness of the situation, we have chosen nevertheless to communicate it to civil society. You have in your hands the "for the general public" version, with the Investigation Group's names and the Unit's symbols redacted."

Here's another interesting research study done by #NASA in 1981 that lays out the potential harmful effects of 60 MHz Electromagnetic Frequency on the human body. Here's an excerpt from the introduction of the report:

"...many interesting and significant effects and theories were identified. Some relate to the vital issue of health and well being. For example, both theories and observations link nonionizing electromagnetic fields to cancer in humans, in at least three different ways: as a cause, as a means of detection, and as an effective treatment. Other effects are simply curious at this time: audible sounds produced by microwaves (i.e. microwave hearing); and visible flashes produced by magnetic fields (magnetophosphenes) at power line frequencies. These are just a small sample of the interactions which will be described..."

Adverse, Benign, and Curious Effects

The effects listed and/or discussed in this section relate to at least three of the five senses (touch, hearing, and sight) and nearly every system of the human body (including circulatory, digestive, nervous, and muscular). Many of them are temporary; however, some result in death and persistent disease. Some are better understood and more widely accepted than others." ... "It is also seen from the tables and figures that electromagnetic fields may promote cancer..."


In this report of my own, I would like to lay out some highlights from my investigation into the interesting and suspicious events of 2020 and the events and outcomes in the years leading up to it, that have led myself and others to go do their own personal research.

I have done my best to include links to every assertion I make and, if you'd like to contact me, email


Important Events:

Event 201

Event 201 was a 3.5 hour training seminar funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the John Hopkins Center for Health Security in 2019.

This was an unofficial "war game" put on by the same names that have the most to gain from the "pandemic" . The event was held on October 18, 2019, in New York--just 2 months before the alleged emergence Covid-19 Patient Zero. Coincidence? Possibly, but I'd encourage you to keep track of the coincidences as you learn about them because there are far too many, in my opinion, to be labeled "coincidence".

Purpose of Event 201:

"to simulate an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic.

The pathogen and the disease it causes are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms."The disease starts in pig farms in Brazil, quietly and slowly at first, but then it starts to spread more rapidly in healthcare settings. When it starts to spread efficiently from person to person in the low-income, densely packed neighborhoods of some of the megacities in South America, the epidemic explodes. It is first exported by air travel to Portugal, the United States, and China and then to many other countries. Although at first some countries are able to control it, it continues to spread and be reintroduced, and eventually no country can maintain control.

"There is no possibility of a vaccine being available in the first year. There is a fictional antiviral drug that can help the sick but not significantly limit spread of the disease.

Since the whole human population is susceptible, during the initial months of the pandemic, the cumulative number of cases increases exponentially, doubling every week. And as the cases and deaths accumulate, the economic and societal consequences become increasingly severe. The scenario ends at the 18-month point, with 65 million deaths. The pandemic is beginning to slow due to the decreasing number of susceptible people. The pandemic will continue at some rate until there is an effective vaccine or until 80-90 % of the global population has been exposed. From that point on, it is likely to be an endemic childhood disease."


What I and many others find quite interesting is that this "exercise", which has so many similarities to the current "pandemic", was conducted only two months before the "real world outbreak". The event was simulated quickly and the rest of the time was used to discuss many topics including how to control the public narrative.

This video does a great job exposing this.

Interestingly, the India Times reported that, "Gates now denies such an exercise ever took place...On April 12, 2020, Gates said in an interview to the BBC, “Now here we are. We didn’t simulate this, we didn’t practice, so both the health policies and economic policies, we find ourselves in uncharted territory.”

The article goes on later to say, "The video on control of public opinion is the most interesting one, as it helps to put in perspective the efforts in this regard, which we are currently experiencing. One participant tells us that Bill Gates is financing work on algorithms which comb through the information on social media platforms to make sure that people can trust the information that they find there. And the Chinese participant, the head of the Chinese Centre for Disease Control muses about ways to counter rumours that the virus is man-made." (India Times, 5/2/2020, Norbert Häring, nationalheraldindia)


Here's what this looks like from where I stand:

Billionaire elites in the pharmaceutical and banking industry, among others, attended and participated in a pandemic simulation event held at the John Hopkins Institute, and was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation who were also partnered with the Rockefeller Foundation.

This so called "Pandemic Exercise" was carried out just two months before the first reported case of the novel Covid-19 virus. The exercise was suspiciously similar to the real life ordeal which we have all been enduring for the last year and the details lead one to believe there are connections between Event 201 and the Covid-19 pandemic itself. I would conclude that this is suspicious at best.

There are also extensive and long-standing relationships between many of these elites and their families, especially within the pharmaceutical and banking industry. If you aren't familiar with this concept please use the links below if you're interested in knowing more:


President Franklin Delano Roosevelt wrote in November 1933 to Col. Edward House:

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centres has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson.”

World Military Games 2019

In October 2019, The US brought military athletes to Wuhan, China for the World Military Games where they placed 35th – which many have claimed was a very poor performance for the USA, so poor that the Chinese called the US team Soy Sauce Soldiersto make fun of them.

Additionally, many US soldiers never participated in the events at all and stayed at their temporary residence which was located suspiciously close to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market – where the disease originated (according to the official narrative) only days after the US left the area. The US left Wuhan on October 28, 2019.

A suspicious fact that should be noted: no records were kept during the games and no pictures exist of the US team. The Chinese have thus far not been able to identify “patient zero”. They have openly stated that they believe he was a member of the US team.

Extra Info.:

China's Claims that the U.S., NOT China, Released the Virus...Intentionally:

Sources say the US had misrepresented influenza carried to China by the US team—influenza that was really Covid-19, developed in a military bio-warfare facility in the state of Washington – now infamously the location of “ground zero” in the US for Covid-19.

The Chinese claim--something censored in the US--that the inattentive attitude and disproportionately below average results of American athletes in the game indicates they might have been in for other purposes and they might actually be bio-warfare operatives, and that their place of residence during their stay in Wuhan was also close to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market—where the first known cluster of cases occurred:

“Where the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 first originated is a question on many minds, from officials in the United States and other countries to epidemiologists looking to track the virus that resulted in the current pandemic. The question has led to China and the United States trading barbs.

Ask President Donald Trump, and he’ll probably say SARS-CoV-2 likely originated in China where the first cases of COVID-19 appeared. He and other U.S. officials claim that the virus originated in a Wuhan laboratory, according to the Associated Press. World Health Organization emergencies chief Dr. Michael Ryan, quoted in the article, said the claim is speculative.

But according to Chinese officials…For months now, even before Maryland and Frederick County announced its first cases of the respiratory disease, Chinese officials have suggested that the coronavirus was created at Fort Detrick.

The first conspiracy claim was that soldiers who trained near Fort Detrick brought the disease with them during the World Military Games in October. But that is not true, according to the U.S. Department of Defense’s rumor control website. In responding to questions about the claim, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said it is “completely ridiculous and it’s irresponsible” that someone from the Chinese government would make such a claim. Esper and other administration officials “repeatedly denounced the Chinese government’s efforts to deflect responsibility for downplaying the threat early on, as well as its lack of transparency during the early stages of the coronavirus outbreak, as being irresponsible and unhelpful with combating the pandemic the world is facing today,” according to the site.

But now the conspiracy theorists and Chinese officials have turned their attention to another target: the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases on Fort Detrick. The conspiracy specifically points to the shutdown of biosafety level 3 and 4 work at USAMRIID by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in July 2019, suggesting that the laboratory was responsible for the virus.

“That is an absolutely false claim,” U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command spokeswoman Lori Salvatore wrote in an email to The News-Post. “USAMRIID does not take part in offensive research.”

Fort Detrick lab shut down after failed safety inspection; all research halted indefinitely. USAMRIID is the Army’s biological defense laboratory, which studies high-level pathogens, like Ebola. Its mission is to protect U.S. soldiers serving both here and abroad. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian tweeted out a link to an article on Global Research, a Canadian website that often promotes conspiracies, including those against the United States. The link Zhao shared suggests that virus may have come from Fort Detrick. The Global Research link has since been deleted.

According to an article in Global Times, a Chinese media organization, others, such as Jin Canrong, an associate dean at Renmin University of China’s School of International Studies, have questioned the USAMRIID shutdown, the rise of e-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury (EVALI) and an early flu season. An article published in the Chinese propaganda site People’s Daily lists 10 questions that the U.S. should answer, with the third question asking what happened at USAMRIID.

One conspiracy suggested people fled from Frederick when the lab reopened. That is not true. While some in the Frederick community expressed displeasure at the laboratory’s reopening, people did not flee.

Other conspiracies suggest that Frederick County has more cases because of the proximity to Fort Detrick. This is also not true. The rumors spread about USAMRIID and COVID-19 are not limited to Chinese media and officials. The Manila Times in the Philippines has also included multiple opinion pieces suggesting the virus was created by USAMRIID, as have other sites, including Reddit.”


Federal Funding of the Wuhan Lab

The United States' federal government, beginning with the Obama administration (at Dr. Fauci's behest), had been funding the Wuhan Institute of Virology, in sums of millions of dollars, and had been doing this for years by the time the Trump administration caught this fiscal "oddity" and put a stop to the funding.

"Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., called on Health & Human Services Secretary Alex Azar Tuesday to cease funding a research grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, telling "Tucker Carlson Tonight" the action could be accomplished "with the stroke of a pen."

"I'm against funding Chinese research in our country, but I'm sure against funding it in China," Gaetz said. "The NIH [National Institutes of Health] gives a $3.7 million grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology [and] they then advertise that they need coronavirus researchers and following that, coronavirus erupts in Wuhan."…

"What's really troubling to me is either conspicuously or miraculously the Wuhan Institute of Virology is able to sequence the virus on January 2 but China doesn't admit to the virus existing until January 9 and then the Wuhan Institute of Virology doesn't release this important scientific information to the world until January 12," Gaetz said.

"So at best, Americans are funding people who are lying to us and at worst, we're funding people who we knew had problems handling pathogens, who then birthed a monster virus onto the world," he added."

Wuhan Institute of Virology

The Wuhan Institute of Virology is the only P4 virology laboratory in China that holds the most dangerous diseases on earth--including the very SARS-CoV-2 strain.

What's interesting about this lab first of all is that an entire decade passed before the lab was opened for operation--the official inauguration of China’s National Biosafety Laboratory, located at Wuhan Institute of Virology took place on January 31, 2015--announced by the General Office of Hubei Provincial People’s Government. But even then, it wasn’t until 2 ½ years later in January 2018, the Chinese government announced the lab was in operation.


Safety Concerns by the U.S. concerning the Wuhan Lab:

Ahead of the 2018 opening of the Wuhan Lab, U.S. biosafety experts and scientists warned of the strong possibility that "a SARS-like virus could escape” the lab. Even more interestingly about the origin of the Covid-19 virus is the publications that had been released in the years just prior to 2019. Many publications released details of Chinese spies caught in the United States and charged with espionage in the United States and Canada.

Among the viruses stolen from the labs was none other than the exact Covid-19 strain that would, soon after, become the very origin of the "Great Pandemic of 2020".


Professor Zhengli Shi, Senior Scientist and Principal Investigator of Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory

Professor Zhengli Shi, Senior Scientist and Principal Investigator of Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory, has been ardently researching and experimenting with coronaviruses for years at Wuhan Institute of Virology — even before ground was broken over a decade ago on the new P4 National Biosafety Laboratory.

Prof. Shi began to win particularly large sums of grant funding for the express purpose of researching and experimenting with coronaviruses — often receiving numerous, overlapping grants for the same time period.

Much of the funding given to Prof. Zhengli for her coronavirus research and experimentation was provided by the US government.

On January 6, 2014, Prof. Shi received a $665,000 grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH) for a study named “The Ecology of Bat Coronaviruses and the Risk of Future Coronavirus Emergence” and then, four days later, on January 10, 2014, an additional $559,500 grant from the United States Agency of International Development published a research study entitled “Emerging Pandemic Threats PREDICT 2_China”.

Prof. Shi concurrently received similarly significant grants from the National Basic Research program of China, the Chinese Academy of Science, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and from The Strategic Priority Research Program of Chinese Academy of Sciences totaling over $2.5 Million for her research and experiments.

In just the past five years, Prof. Shi has been given almost $10 million in grants to STUDY CORONAVIRUSES…she appears to be one of the world’s leading bat virologists — and most definitely the leading bat virologist in China. Her noted “research interests” include, “Discovery of unknown viruses in wild animals especially bats, molecular epidemiology of emerging zoonotic viruses, and inter-species infection mechanism of zoonotic viruses.”

Prof. Shi has been a professional member of the Chinese Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (2000–2016), the Chinese Society for Microbiology (2002-present), the American Society for Microbiology (2007-present), and the Scientific Committee of the DIVERSITAS ecoHEALTH Core Project (2014–2016). She has served on the Editorial Board of Virologica Sinica (2016–2016), on the Editorial Board of Journal of Medical Virology (2015–2017), and on the Editorial Board of Virology (2017–2019).

She was Associate Editor of Virology Journal (2016–2018), and Editor-in-Chief of Virologica Sinica (2017–2019). Prof. Zhengli is also the recipient of numerous, prestigious awards and honors, including the Natural Science Award of Hubei Province, China (First Prize and Second Prize), Outstanding Scientist of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Outstanding Research Article on Natural Science (Grand Prize and Second Prize).

Prof. Shi's research focused on inter-species transmission of zoonotic viruses, the identification, genetic evolution and pathogenesis of bat viruses, the genetic variation of pathogens in Africa, the evolution mechanism of the adaptation of bat SARS-related coronaviruses to host receptor molecules, the risk of inter-species infection, genetic evolution and transmission mechanism of important bat-borne viruses, and pathogen biology studies on novel swine coronaviruses.

In a letter to the editor of SCIENCE CHINA Life Sciences published, in November 2017, “Cross-neutralization of SARS coronavirus-specific antibodies against bat SARS-like coronaviruses", Prof. Shi warns that, ”severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) is considered to be an emerging zoonotic pathogen crossing species barriers to infect humans, and that the spike protein of the virus’ RNA genome plays a key role in human cellular entry.”

In that same month, the results of a study Prof. Shi conducted entitled, Serological evidence of bat SARS-related coronavirus infection in humans, China indicated that some SARSr-CoVs may have high potential to infect human cells, without the necessity for an intermediate host.

The Sun cited a report voicing warnings given back in 2017: “a deadly SARS-like virus could escape from lab [sic] in Wuhan set up to study some of the world’s deadliest diseases.”

In Prof. Shi's March 2019 study, Bat Coronaviruses in China, she writes, it is “highly likely that future SARS- or MERS-like coronavirus outbreaks will originate from bats, and there is an increased probability that this will occur in China. Therefore, the investigation of bat coronaviruses becomes an urgent issue for the detection of early warning signs, which in turn minimizes the impact of such future outbreaks in China.”

On the day before the new coronavirus would allegedly emerge at the Huanan Seafood Market (just 8.6 miles away from the laboratory) on December 12, 2019, Prof. Zhengli and her team published the study, “Molecular mechanism for antibody-dependent enhancement of coronavirus entry” .

The abstract reads, "Coronavirus spike protein mediates viral entry into cells by first binding to a receptor on host cell surface and then fusing viral and host membranes. Our study reveals a novel molecular mechanism for antibody-enhanced viral entry and can guide future vaccination and antiviral strategies. This study reveals complex roles of antibodies in viral entry and can guide future vaccine design and antibody-based drug therapy.”

The day after this study was published, patient zero had already been infected with Coronavirus 2019-nCoV…just 8.6 miles away from Prof. Zhengli’s laboratory.

Moderna's #mRNA Vaccine

"Our foundation—both through our own funding and through CEPI—has been supporting the development of an RNA vaccine platform for nearly a decade. We were planning to use it to make vaccines for diseases that affect the poor like malaria, but now it’s looking like one of the most promising options for COVID. The first candidate to start human trials was an RNA vaccine created by a company called Moderna.

Here’s how an RNA vaccine works: rather than injecting a pathogen’s antigen into your body, you instead give the body the genetic code needed to produce that antigen itself. When the antigens appear on the outside of your cells, your immune system attacks them—and learns how to defeat future intruders in the process. You essentially turn your body into its own vaccine manufacturing unit.

Because RNA vaccines let your body do most of the work, they don’t require much material. That makes them much faster to manufacture. There’s a catch, though: we don’t know for sure yet if RNA is a viable platform for vaccines. Since COVID would be the first RNA vaccine out of the gate, we have to prove both that the platform itself works and that it creates immunity. It’s a bit like building your computer system and your first piece of software at the same time." (GatesNotes)

But what is Bill Gates is not telling the public regarding RNA vaccines? See separate post on DARPA.


The Rockefeller Foundation and "Operation Lockstep"

Published in May 2010 in cooperation with the Global Business Network of futurologist Peter Schwartz, The Rockefeller Foundation Report entitled, "Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development". What's interesting is that, throughout this Covid-19 "pandemic" thus far, the United States and the rest of the world as a whole have been following the guidelines laid out in the Rockefeller report extremely closely.

The most intriguing section of the report is entitled, Operation Lockstep, described as follows: “A world of tighter top-down government control and more authoritarian leadership, with limited innovation and growing citizen push back.” (2010).

Here's an excerpt:

“In 2012, the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit. Unlike 2009’s H1N1, this new influenza strain — originating from wild geese — was extremely virulent and deadly. Even the most pandemic-prepared nations were quickly overwhelmed when the virus streaked around the world, infecting nearly 20 percent of the global population and killing 8 million in just seven months…The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains. Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months, devoid of both employees and customers.

During the pandemic, national leaders around the world flexed their authority and imposed airtight rules and restrictions, from the mandatory wearing of face masks to body-temperature checks at the entries to communal spaces like train stations and supermarkets. Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and oversight of citizens and their activities stuck and even intensified. In order to protect themselves from the spread of increasingly global problems — from pandemics and transnational terrorism to environmental crises and rising poverty — leaders around the world took a firmer grip on power.”
