QUESTION: Marty; Now Lindsey Grahm is calling for sanction against China. This is starting to seem like the war drums are beating. What do you think?
ANSWER: I am thoroughly disgusted with this entire pandemic nonsense. There is no way there is any evidence whatsoever that convinces me that this was some plot on the part of China. This insane lockdown was by no means contrived by China. The blame for that belongs on the shoulders of Bill Gates and his control of all the health organizations. The fact that Sweden did not lockdown and shows that their experience with this virus is no different than countries that locked down.
It gives me no pleasure to gloat about our forecasts being correct. Perhaps deep inside I had hoped that if I exposed the cycle, we would have some common sense to respect this and exercise restraint. In that respect, I am a fool to have any faith that we perhaps could learn from the cycle and act accordingly. I do not know what more I can do. I am in the middle. I see the authoritarian desires of the left who want to suppress all of us and the extreme authoritarian right which far too often believe confrontation and war is an answer.
There should be a REAL investigation of the call for this lockdown rather than blaming China. To me, this is like going after the gun manufacturer rather than the guy you robbed the store and kill people. Even if China intentionally leaked this virus, it was NOT even as lethal as the flu. This to me is just total BS. If it was some biological weapon, that is different. There is ZERO evidence of that. All the evidence so far shows that if it was a leak, it was certainly not intentional. That does not warrant sanctions.
Once you impose sanctions, you create a cold war. Look at Russia. Nixon opened China to divide and conquer. Are we really that stupid to close China and encourage them to join Russia in a cold war that will further destroy the world economy and most likely lead to real war? Unfortunately, 2020 was the year for a sharp rise in volatility so this is on target. This cycle should peak out by 2027.
