Plunging stocks, pandemic fears, quarantines—what’s the real operation?

A grisly old PR pro waddles into a conference room where elite technocrats are waiting for his assessment of propaganda issues. He sits down, looks around, and says, “If you’re going to launch a phony epidemic, the ideal place for it is mainland China. The government will lock down that country quicker than a missile fired from a drone. And then nobody will be able to figure out what’s going on. Which is exactly what you want. You can say there are a million epidemic cases, you can say thousands of people are dropping dead on the street, you can say it’s a bioweapon or a bat virus, you can especially say the government there is reacting beautifully, and we should all look to the Chinese example of how to run things. Because that’s how you want things to be run everywhere, right? China is perfect for a phony epidemic. How are people going to figure out it’s a fake behind the lockdown? Whereas, say, in a place like Brazil, there are still a few freedoms and a little leeway, and people can ask questions…”

Things are changing quickly. By the time this is published, the situation may have changed.

Right now, world trading markets are taking a major hit. Governments are blowing the dust off their old pandemic plans and feeding details to click-hungry press outlets. “We may have to use stadiums for mass quarantines of suspected epidemic cases…” “We have to cancel large events.” Apparently, China has a hundred million people in some form of lockdown.

There is no doubt that this insanity can continue, regardless of the facts: who cares whether researchers ever really discovered the COV virus; who cares that diagnostic tests are worthless for defining a case of COV; who cares that case numbers can be inflated without evidence; who cares that environmental factors in China (deadly air pollution, 5G technology rollout) can explain why people there are falling ill.

Public health officials and governments know they can SAY anything they want to, thereby exacerbating the fear and the lies. And on that basis, they can declare emergencies and quarantines and lockdowns and the closure of businesses and the cessation of trade. They can bring police or troops to an area to “secure order.”

And the craziest part of all this is, huge numbers of people will automatically believe that such extreme measures somehow prove THE VIRUS is dangerous. The effect proves the cause. This notion was rebuked and throttled by Aristotle in ancient Greece, but armies of zombie-like citizens still accept it.


The basic answer is: it has levels. Different players in different positions gain a piece of the pie. For example, pharma gets to sell immense amounts of highly toxic antiviral drugs, and gets to develop and sell an enormously profitable toxic vaccine. National militaries lick their chops and anticipate moving into big cities and maintaining order. The collection of entities I call the medical cartel gets to exert more influence over the minds of billions of people: “medical diagnosis and treatment, from birth to death, is absolutely essential for the survival of life on planet Earth.” That’s a BIG one. Understand: when the drugs and vaccines are toxic, the citizens are debilitated, and thus easier to manage.

Long-term, the medical cartel is the most powerful wing of the Brave New World, also known as Globalism. Also known as Technocracy.

Technocracy: With the rollout of 5G the so-called Internet of Things really takes off. Smart cars, smart homes, smart cities. A trillion devices are connected; and a result, a worldwide Energy Authority can truly take its place in the foreground. Meaning? The real-time monitoring of all energy production AND use on the planet can be measured—and energy-use quotas can be established for individuals and nations, “for the good of all.”

It’s called CONTROL.

China is making lemonade out of the lemons of the “coronavirus crisis,” as we speak. It’s moving ahead with the building of many smart cities. And the government has the power to move huge numbers of people into the cities, where wall-to-wall surveillance will be the order of the day, “in order to predict future epidemics before they happen.” The Internet of Things will allow all sorts of automatic quotas to be imposed on the citizenry. Food, energy, travel, etc. And then you have automated diagnosis of illness and mandatory treatment—another nightmare.

It’s called CONTROL.

Globalism/technocracy is flexing muscles and producing hits on national economies. It’s testing its ability to do damage in that area. It needs to level out economies in many countries, in order to take them over to a greater degree. Declared fake epidemics are a tool for that purpose.

In this regard, consider what happens in any serious economic downturn or recession. It’s what I would call Operation Close-Out, better known as Consolidation. Wealthy players, aided by banks, move in, sniff out major businesses and companies that are now on the edge of failure, and buy them out. The wealthy own more; the newly poor own less.

Of course, with foreknowledge of plunging trading markets—which these players have—a prime opportunity opens up for shorting stocks, monitoring them on the way down, and selling them off at the bottom. Another bonanza. Another version of Consolidation.

As I said, the real operation here has levels. Different players on different places of the power ladder reap benefits.

Never forget that the World Health Organization (WHO)—along with the US Centers for Disease Control—operates these fake epidemics on the medical side. WHO is a branch of the Globalist fortress called the United Nations. WHO has its sleazy hands on medical bureaucrats in every nation on Earth, and it can threaten a government which doesn’t react with sufficient alarm, when the preferred phony picture of an epidemic is floated for public consumption.

The United Nations, to make a very long story short, wants a borderless, non-national, planned planet. Kinder and gentler. Ruled from the top. By technocrats.

One of its wet dreams is fake pandemics.

The age-old theme of Order from Chaos advances front and center. From the chaos of a pandemic, new layers of control will be imposed—and received with open arms. How much Order? That’s always decided on the basis of an experiment. An exercise. A test. Which is what this COV operation is. Among the many questions the show runners are asking: how big an economic hit will nations, particularly, China, be willing to take; how much pushback, if any, will come from the citizenry; how tightly will medical researchers march on the narrow road of their preposterous fake findings without rebelling; under the auspices of emergency aid, how much money can be stolen, siphoned off, and placed into favored pockets; during the manufactured epidemic crisis, and in the aftermath, how much surveillance will citizens be willing to stomach; with what degree of acquiescence will people accept the announced end of the pandemic; how badly can we affect national treasuries?

And so on and so forth. All standard inquiries, forming the basis of confidential after-operation reports. Along with, of course, prospective estimates of what can be accomplished next time, in a new and improved experiment.

How thick can we slice the baloney next time?

    Thank you, Jon, for this clear, concise analysis. It confirms my gut feelings. Beautifully expressed and insightful. Very appreciated! What evil power they possess to manipulate the minds of men! God bless you!

    • Robert Chandler says:

      Yes, this is a very sad day and age for any one of us that see through the evil, i don’t know how they keep keeping on with all the misery they cause, most people I know are good caring people they just can’t see past the smoke and mirrors, where is karma?
      we need help on this, being aware of it is not going to change things, and losing more friends does not help either

      • el gallinazo says:

        Every clear sighted person upon reflection realizes that the planet is ruled by a small coterie of psychopaths. IMHO the only valid area of debate in this regard is whether the top of this power structure is human or not. The universe is far vaster than we have been trained from birth to believe.

  2. From Quebec says:

    Like I have said before on this site: This is a big scam

    When Trump got elected, the USA was going down the tube. And now the USA is doing great.

    They can not deal with that, because they want a New World order. And to get it the USA must fall

    They have tried the Russian Hoax, The Ukrane hoax, the impeachment and everything except the kitchen sink.

    Now, they are trying to blame Trump for the Corona virus.

    If you do not believe me, just read this article at

    Flat out lies being levelled at President exposed by AP
    Steve Watson | – FEBRUARY 28, 2020

    Ruch Limbaugt was right. This scam is to get Trump out of office


    • Sunshine says:

      So true. They will use whatever they find against Trump. And now that 7 billion have been allocated to fight the virus in the US, I bet a lot of people are rubbing their hands together in anticipation. This is a big money grab. Look at which States are losing sanctuary city funding, then look at their infection (or observation) numbers. I don’t know how it could be more obvious. I’m not even sure the money will stay open the US. Hope they put tracers on all of the Coronabucks going out.

  3. James Lunsford says:

    When I saw Plunging Stocks in the headline of this article, it reminded me that the FED and the Treasury Department’s Plunge Protection Team are the really big players in the stock market right now. They are probably all that keep it up. So if the market is making huge downturns, it is doubtless because they are selling off their shares. Or at least NOT buying into it as usual to prop it up. Which adds a whole new dimension to this “pandemic”. What is the agenda of the market crash? It could be used to do all that you described in this article. It could also be used to finally finish off the fake economy and usher in a new currency. Or any number of things. Just a thought.

  4. Bala Bala Das (Bruce Hatcher) says:

    Jon, you are amazing, talk bout being over the target. dropping truth bombs in clusters.

  5. Yang says:

    Speaking of power grabs, it’s been speculated by someone at the Atlantic that this event will be seized upon by the chief executive of US to declare a state of emergency and establish himself as dictator-for-life.

    Really, musings of this sort can go into any number of plausible directions, including a short-sighted attempt by current Anglo elite to cripple China for economic and military advantage.

    In other words, a “nationalist” spin can be put on this just as easily as a “globalist” one. The current ostensible and certainly rhetorical chief executive of US has done little, for example, to curtail the surveillance state, all while empowering shady state agencies like ICE under the pretext, possibly, of rooting out illegals, while laying the groundwork for that which outline above, including choking pollution and 5G.

    As they say, all roads lead to Rome and a Mussolini-esque fool is hardly preferable to a cool technocrat like Xi Jianping. Keep up the good work, my tin-foil hat is twice as thick as yours.

    • Yang says:

      To further the theory that this is a biowarfare operation targeting US and Israeli (assuming a difference) enemies we have the following report…

      “Based on official numbers, the mortality rate in Iran has fluctuated daily, between eight and eighteen per cent, compared to three per cent in China and less everywhere else. Iran is also unique, because a disproportionate number of confirmed cases are senior government officials.”

      Sure, keep telling us that COVID-19 isn’t a bioweapon—and that it hasn’t been deliberately deployed. But anyone with a modicum of common sense has got to admit that it looks mighty strange for Iran to now be #2 on the pandemic list while senior government officials appear to be the targets.”–

  6. Lyle S says:

    I thought I was going crazy as i thought the whole thing look fake.
    When I saw the media linking the stock market plunge to the COV I knew I had to get to your Blog & get the skinny
    Thanks mate

    • el gallinazo says:

      It’s the old Hegelian dialectic. Problem>Reaction>Solution. The problem may be invented, or as Obama administration chief-of-staff, Rahm Emanuel put it, “Never let a crisis go to waste.” As Jon has amply demonstrated, in the case of CV, the problem was created. The reaction is the irrational panicking we are seeing among the people from around the planet. There will be many “solutions,” the global mandating of toxic and useless vaccinations into our blood will not be the least of them. When our Overlords orchestrate a major global psy-op, they have many objectives. Another objective is to be able to blame this engineered economic collapse on a virus as opposed to the global banksters who have inflated debt and the “everything bubble” to almost unimaginable heights. As the brilliant medical journalist, Janine Roberts put it, “You can’t sue a virus.”

      Finally, the entities that are pulling off this operation have no allegiance to any nation or block of nations. To the contrary, their allegiance is to the destruction of all nations in order to set the groundwork for a one world tyranny. The Chinese leadership would be more than willing to shoot itself in the foot economically in order to tighten the reins on any dissent or freedom of thought. And if this virus were real, the CIA/Mossad would have realized that it would spread to the USA in a matter of weeks. Socially, China will fare “better” than the USA because their people are more used to hardship and following the orders of “authorities.”

  7. Maverick says:

    There is a recent video on youtube from Yummy Mummy Emporium & apothecary labelled pushing the pandemic red button brought up an intresting thing that i didnt know and hasnt really been recovered. She was quoting someone else, but apparently a few years ago banks issued ‘pandemic bonds’ and funnily enough they were modelled on the coronavirus breaking out in a 3rd world country. Apparently there are huge interests rates being recorded on them and the rates go higher and higher the longer a pandemic goes on (12 weeks or more to get the top top amounts) and as regards how many ‘supposed cases are recorded’ the more cases there are the more money is handed out. Quite a few nations especially the poorer ones are involved. If true it really makes you think this is beyond sick. It is a big insurance swindle.

    • Opinionist says:

      Thanks for bringing this up. I knew nothing about this, but I’ve now checked it out and posted about it. This will help me when I run into the usual naïve question “If it’s not real then why would ‘they’ do this?” Much appreciated!

  8. Suzy Skye says:

    As always, bless you and thank you. I’m so proud of you and so grateful you are still out there in the proverbial wilderness speaking truth and clarity.

  9. Johnny Walker Read says:

    When this all started I pretty much bought into the fear porn. As time went on I have come to realize Jon was right from the start. Many agendas being pushed on Joe six-pack, and none of them are good. Onward and upward with their Oligarchical NWO.

  10. Jim M. says:

    One more great piece Jon, I am certainly glad I stopped to read it. I knew that the whole thing smelled like the fish market, but you have put the pieces of the puzzle together very well for us as always! Thanks again, and keep up the good work!

  11. Hanover Fist says:

    Its so frustrating to watch the public bounce back and forth from the impeachment reality show to the democommie cult of identity circus. Now we add the censored term Coronavirus and all the hype, fear mongering and “panic” into that feted murk of a a swamp. No one is considering the larger implications. Well, no one in the “mainstream” anyway. Thank you Mr. Rappoport for the work you do. It’s good to know others are seeing this cliff we are speeding toward!

  12. Peter says:

    Great article. Surely many levels of what’s this all about can be discussed. Another level that comes to my mind is geopolitical. Look what’s going on right now in Syria. They never intended to let that country/region be. But who cares when the main story wordwide at this moment is the corona “pandemic”.

  13. Brendon O'Connell says:

    Watch the video on the Trump impeachment which goes into all this – Smart Cities etc and “crisis”. It was right on the money in timing.


  14. Laura says:

    And hey, whatever happened to the deadly measles panic? A few months ago they warned that someone with measles had been in a theater here in Orange County CA and people were warned to be on alert if they’d been in the area. God I hate the media.

  15. Yurre says:

    Rap, you da man! Keep on keeping on Brother.

  16. lamberth says:

    The Pied Piper is playing its tune.
    And the masses are following like lemmings (or should I say zombies), right to the edge of the cliff.
    Also in my knack-of-the-woods the MSM has gone totally insane with their fear porn.

    Thanks Jon for speaking the voice of logic&reason.
    With you all the way.

  17. Richard A Kean says:

    “a prime opportunity opens up for shorting stocks, monitoring them on the way down, and selling them off at the bottom”.

    Shorting involves borrowing the stock from your broker, and immediately selling it at the top. If all goes as planned, you buy it back at the bottom, and cover your broker indebtedness with the shares…

  18. Dicko says:

    I agree Jon that nobody is looking into other causes for the people dying in China. Wuhan is a very smoggy, polluted city with huge Steel Smelting industry right across the river from Wuhan. January is middle of winter with 4oC being the ave temp. cold air traps pollution low. Cadmium is a known toxic byproduct of metal smelting and China has huge problems with cadmium toxicity in rivers, soil and air. Symptoms of Cadmium poisoning are identical to what Coronavirus is allegedly causing. Maybe coronavirus is a common cold (or a human body defense against pollution). The death toll is from pollution, not the virus. Mainly only elderly male victims at this stage. If it is true that in Iran, the victims are military leaders then maybe Iran is the target all along. Make out there is a virus outbreak in China (at a time of year death rate from pollution exposure spikes) make it look like a common cold/flu so can be tested positive in any place one looks. Release a weaponised version on your target. Hide in plain sight.

  19. Opinionist says:

    This is my favorite article of the series so far. What’s been said is just what I’ve been telling people all along. As usual though, most don’t want the truth. The constant response I receive is the same one that people give in response to posts about other hoaxes. The good old “Are you trying to tell me that no one is really dead??!”, only this time the answer is different. Yes, people are dead, but it’s not from a “Coronavirus pandemic.” After that, I get the usual “But why would they do this?!” That’s when I point them to your articles for the second time and tell them to read the article again because they must not have been paying attention the first time. With this particular article, you’ve given me an even better article to point to and I don’t think it’ll be necessary for anyone to read it twice. The “Why?” is spelled out perfectly.
    One comment only, about Italy. Things are very strange here! More people are wearing the ridiculous face masks, but the streets of Milano are almost full again. It’s as if people got tired of the whole thing after a week, but wear the masks ‘just in case.’
    Thank you for this truly great post and for all the others in this series. Yours is the only sane voice I’ve heard publicly about this so called pandemic.

  20. Lance says:

    What’s the operation? What’s going on is not one “operation”. Psychological “operations” involve the “process” of delivering messages overtly and covertly using a wide variety of methods and technologies to an individual or individuals to influence emotions, motives, reasoning and to promote desired attitudes and behaviors. These “operations” are planned and are being conducted across the entire “spectrum” of conflict. That’s right, conflict! These “operations” are supposed to only be used on “foreign audiences”, but they’re not. These “operations” are being directed at the physiological and psychological functions of individuals and populations in ALL countries. Misinformation and disinformation are used in these “operations” to mislead, to manage perceptions, to influence decisions and to make it very hard to know exactly what’s happening, which is precisely what’s happening! In other words, the deception is GREAT!

    People are dying every day all over the world by the millions for different illnesses and because is not reported in the global obituary you don.t know now THEY report of course is the virus HUCK LINE AND SINKER
