Since it first appeared this past December, COVID-19, which to date has killed some 17,000 in a global population of 7.7 billion, has now been declared a “war” by political leaders worldwide.

Last Wednesday, President Trump was asked by a reporter if he considered the country to be on a “war footing” in terms of fighting the virus. Trump replied, “It’s a war. I view it as a, in a sense, a wartime president.”

“This is a war,” said President Trump on Sunday, announcing he was activating National Guard units in New York, California, and Washington State to help fight the coronavirus, which he has repeatedly referred to as the “invisible enemy.”

Last Friday, President Trump invoked “emergency war powers” to increase the manufacturing of needed medical supplies… which the United States is woefully unprepared for. Beginning with NAFTA and accelerating with China’s admittance into the World Trade Organization in 2001, corporations have outsourced previously “Made in USA” products to cheap labor markets.

On 14 March, Vice President Joe Biden, when asked a question about coronavirus during the debate with Bernie Sanders, responded, “This is a crisis. We’re at war with a virus… In a war, you do whatever is needed to be done to take care of your people.”

On 16 March, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio described his vision of the virus issue: “We have to understand this as a pure war footing.” Two days later, he phoned General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to discuss military options for dealing with the coronavirus.

“We had a detailed conversation about the capacity that the armed forces could bring to bear to address a crisis like coronavirus and we went over details in terms of different options of what the military might be able to provide.”

In France, last Monday, French President Emmanuel Macron addressed his nation with the words, “We are at war… The enemy is invisible and it requires our general mobilization.” He has ordered citizens to be in “lockdown mode,” only allowed out their homes to buy food and medicine.

In Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated last Tuesday, “We must act like any wartime government and do whatever it takes to support our economy.”

In her media address to the nation last Wednesday, German Prime Minister Angela Merkel proclaimed, “Since the Second World War, there has been no challenge to our nation that has demanded such a degree of common and united action.”

On 3 March, South Korea President Moon Jae-in said, “The entire country has entered war against the infectious disease.”

Ten days later, UN Secretary-General António Guterres declared, “We must declare war on this virus.”

On Sunday, Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez of Spain declared, “Europe is at war… we have to respond with our weapons.”

Media Declares War

Stoking fear and joining the battle hymn against coronavirus, here are some representative samples of recent headlines:

  • “America is at War, and There’s Only One Enemy” – New York Times
  • “Our Big War” – Time Magazine
  • “Rattled World ‘at war’ with Coronavirus as Deaths Surge in Italy, France” – Reuters
  • “Inside France’s Public Health War against the Coronavirus” – The New Yorker
  • “This is like a War: View from Italy’s Coronavirus Frontline” – The Guardian
  • “This… Invisible Sense of Danger: Doing Journalism in the Coronavirus War” – Vanity Fair
  • “War in the Time of Coronavirus” – The Hill
  • “Dems Call for War on Coronavirus” – Atlantic Media
  • “America’s Coronavirus War Has Only Just Begun” – Bloomberg
  • “Coronavirus Is Not an Emergency. It’s A War” – Forbes

 TRENDPOST: As Gerald Celente has long noted, “When all else fails, they take you to war.”

As evidenced, war has again been declared; the war drums are beating and the masses march in line.

Whether lying them into wars such as Vietnam and Iraq or the longest war in American history, Afghanistan, with the war on COVID-19, so, too, are the proclamations from “leaders” based on erroneous facts, ignoring readily available facts.

According to scientific data, virtually all who have died from the virus are older adults with chronic health problems. For the rest that have been infected with the virus, most have experienced only mild symptoms, such as fever and coughing and almost everyone recovers.

Yet, the mass hysteria generated by the mainstream media and politicians dominates, and those who challenge the powers that be have been blacklisted from the media, just as they were when challenging the lies that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. These facts were long detailed in previous issues of the Trends Journal.  

TREND FORECAST: From North America to South America, Europe to Asia, nations around the world have called in the military and have imposed, by any other name, Martial Law in the name of fighting the COVID-19 War.

 Italy and Spain are in total lockdown. Germany has banned more than two people to gather in public. France mobilized 100,000 police and gendarmes to enforce confinement laws, fining anyone leaving the house without a required form up to €135 for those who don’t comply.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the UK announced the imposition of the most restrictive rules since World War II, locking down the nation and ordering the police break up any public gatherings and levy substantial fines for anyone breaking the rules.

“From this evening I must give the British people a very simple instruction – you must stay at home,” Johnson said.

In the United States, as with other nations, politicians have made up stringent “social distancing” rules and regulations, how many people can come in your house, who can go to work and who can’t… and the people obey or suffer the consequences… the list of countries clamping down on freedom goes on and on.

As for violations of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and doctrines of nations granting liberty and justice to all, a complicit mainstream media ignores the blatant violations of political leaders who lock people in their homes, close down business, put hundreds of millions out of work, and ban public gatherings.

There is virtually no dissent. Mass protests by the people are prohibited: COVID-19 = Orwell’s 1984.

    Setting us up for War, by first total control and money debasement.

    When all else fail, they take you to war. This time it’s different. The war is now on the people and when this war will be over, look for China to be blamed by the politicians and the media. We will then move on to the next WW.

      The “war” has always been on the people – one way or another. It’s a long story, but techno-society has long been manipulated by an ancient power structure, such that society itself is a weapon. It has very much been so especially against the indigenous/low-tech cultures. Probably 100 million were slaughtered bringing Euro technomasturbating “civilization” to this hemisphere. Truly free nations were holocausted to make way for an illusion of freedom based on killing the planet for money and hoarding wealth. Inside the weapon there has been created nothing much different from feudalism. It’s just changed to interest-bearing debt and taxes. Economic slavery sold as freedom.

    GC wants to tell folks the inside story that it’s the politicians doing this. But that’s about as true as saying Mafia triggermen tell the bosses who to hit. This is a global Elite operation, which power structure both the puppet-pols and all the official authorities, such as WHO, NIH/CDC, FDA, and the whole alphabet soup of government corruption bow to – whose policy they execute. They bow to their creators/overseers. As do corporations. Triggermen don’t put out the contract, meaning set policy, the global financial Elite do. But we don’t hear much about that around Trendsville. Here, it’s all about the Drama, not the scrip writers.
    This is not about money or the virus. It’s about the psychopaths’ wet dream – total global domination and control. Or, it could be just a drill to get all the draconian machinery in place for the big one.
    If the people understood and had some solidarity, there would be a global #BustTheLockdown! Failing that, the best thing people could do to resist the tyranny is widespread rejection at the consumer level of all wireless systems and devices, because wireless is the very foundation of the surveillance, tracking, indexing, categorizing human-control system rapidly gestating in the technosphere.

    Although taking plausible precautions is wise. However, the media that covered everything from 9/11 to Y2K to 2012 to SARS to Ebola to Weapons of Mass Destruction to any other event, took the general public’s conscience to ever greater levels of hysteria than ever before! However, thanks to Gerald Celente and the exeptional team of the Trends Journal, we now understand that this event is likely a distraction from the real terror that has just arrived, which is known to those who read the Trends Journal as the ‘Greatest Depression’ to ever take place. Although mainstream media barely mention this event, it’s important that we all send it off to Facebook and other social media outlets so more and more people could wake up and see the big picture and take the appropriate response without the interfearence of mainstream media hysteria.

    The American Dream has now devolved into a nightmare of sorts. Suddenly, you have lost your freedoms (to associate, to assemble, to freely consume, to run your business, to operate according to the law, to defend yourself, again, according to your State’s Revised Statutes, to Work and earn a living.). Suddenly, the elites and their political lackeys (cowards) have ordered a new world paradigm in a majority of individual States. Local jurisdictions have little choice but to follow-along.

    Only a relative few, mostly rural states, have not yet gone along with this power grab by the government. Among them, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, (Northern Great Plains States) Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi (Deep South). At least over half of the states have just carbon-copied California and New York. These are the States that have not caved-in to “peer pressure” to deny Liberties expressly stated in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    Most other Western States have succomed, such as Calif. Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, and recently, Colorado (coincidentally the states that supported Joe Biden and Barack Obama). Thus, only when the “chips are down” do we really find-out who has been drinking the Kool-Aid. The “essential business” restrictions are said to only be “temporary”. Well, we will have to see about that.

    According to the Portland (Oregon) Police Bureau and officers posted at the Portland International Airport (2006), Federal Regulations require the immediate removal of any individual who causes “any kind of disturbance” while waiting in the airport lobby or otherwise. This means any arguments, loud conversations, or other disagreements.

    So, to be safe and not miss your flight, its generally advisable to NOT talk to strangers or to get close (sit next to ) anyone while awaiting boarding, if possible. Otherwise, any conflict that becomes noticed is reported, the Airport Police arrive, and the offending person MAY, at the officer’s discretion, be removed from the airport and probably trespassed, as well. In additin, this is a good way to be added to the Federal Government’s so-called No-Fly List. There is no appeal from official blackballing either.

    Now, we are seeing the equivalent of “Zero Tolerance Security” at retail grocery lines in and outside of the store. Once Martial Law is in-effect declared ( National Guard Mobilized) and mandatory curfews imposed on all, then you are “at the airport” while waiting to enter a local grocery store. Strict security protocols can be strictly enforced any time the proprietor and/or the authorities want to or choose to inorder to keep “the people” in-line and intimidate everyone, as well. Welcome to the prospect of being a conquered people who would then be proved even weaker than the French (Vichy Government 1940-1945) ever were. French Fries = America Fries Bro.
