It appears that the U.S. military is taking this coronavirus outbreak extremely seriously. An executive order has been issued which has initiated the implementation of “the Department of Defense Global Campaign plan for Pandemic Influenza and Infectious Diseases 3551-13”.
We don’t know all of the details of the plan, but we do know that it instructs U.S. military officials “to prepare for widespread outbreaks”. Many in the mainstream media continue to try to convince us that this virus is not much more dangerous than the common flu, but if that is true then why is our military taking such a dramatic step? The following comes from a Military Times article…
An executive order issued by the Joint Staff and approved by Defense Secretary Mark Esper this month directed Northern Command and geographic combatant commanders to initiate pandemic plans, which include ordering commanders to prepare for widespread outbreaks and confining service members with a history of travel to China.
The Navy and Marine Corps messages, issued Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, reference an executive order directing U.S. Northern Command to implement the Department of Defense Global Campaign plan for Pandemic Influenza and Infectious Diseases 3551-13.
For now, we are not being told the specific details of this plan, and when Northern Command was asked about it they issued a very vague statement…
“We coordinate with other combatant commands to assess potential impacts in the event of a pandemic and we ensure the U.S. military is poised to respond as required,” said Northern Command in a statement emailed to Military Times. “The military profession fosters a culture of planning, and the fact that we are coordinating planning efforts across the geographical combatant commands is consistent with how we prepare to respond, if directed.”
Thankfully, the virus is not spreading widely inside the United States so far.
But that could change at any time, and on Wednesday a 14th U.S. case was confirmed…
A second person evacuated from Wuhan, China, to a U.S. Marine base near San Diego has been diagnosed with the new coronavirus, raising the tally of confirmed cases in the United States to 14, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported on Wednesday.
The patient was among 232 individuals who had been placed under quarantine at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar after being airlifted from the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan earlier this month, CDC spokeswoman Ana Toro said.
But 14 confirmed cases is just a tiny drop in the bucket compared to more than 59,000 confirmed cases in China.
We should be thankful for the low number of cases in this country, but Dr. Nancy Messonnier is warning that “we are likely to see community spread in the U.S.” at some point…
Top health officials prepped Americans for the prospect of novel coronavirus spreading in communities in the United States during a Wednesday news conference.
“At some point, we we are likely to see community spread in the U.S.,” said Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.
And if we do start seeing tens of thousands of confirmed cases here, the level of fear is going to rise dramatically and a lot of people are going to go completely nuts.
In fact, we are already starting to see some really strange things.
For example, a couple of “pranksters” in New York thought it would be really funny to spill a bucket of “coronavirus” in the middle of a crowded subway car…
David Flores and Morris Cordewell donned hazmats suits for the stunt while holding a container filled with liquid that had biological hazard markings on it.
In the video Cordewell gets up and spills the liquid over the floor as train passengers quickly jump out of harm’s way. However, it turns out their bucket contained Kool-Aid juice.
Who would do something like that?
Yes, they probably thought that it was quite funny, but the truth is that this sort of a stunt could have taken a very tragic turn.
Over in China, we are witnessing things that are even more frightening.
For example, one woman that has apparently caught the virus decided to walk down the street in the middle of the day and touch every car door handle she came across.
In other words, it appears that she was purposely trying to spread the virus to others.
When things get really nuts, most people will behave at least somewhat rationally, but there will always be others that will completely snap.
And without a doubt, there are always crazy people that are trying to bring unusual things into this country. For instance, just check out this recent example from Zero Hedge…
That’s exactly what happened two weeks ago: U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, seized a bag of dead birds that was being carried in the luggage of an airline passenger traveling from China to Washington D.C. on January 27.
The birds were packaged in a bag that had cartoon images on it and was seized at Dulles Airport from a passenger, who was arriving from Beijing, according to the NY Post. The passenger claimed that the birds were “cat food” and that he was planning to bring them to Maryland after his flight.
Our world is getting crazier with each passing day, and it is inevitable that we will see a lot more weird stuff happen in the months ahead.
We are in a battle with a virus that is perfect for spreading fear. It is invisible to the naked eye, it can survive on surfaces for up to 9 days, it has an incubation period of up to 24 days, and it spreads from person to person frighteningly easily.
To a certain extent, there is comfort in being able to see your enemy.
But we cannot detect this virus with our five senses. It could be on the next grocery cart you push, the next door handle you twist or the next hand that you shake.
That sort of uncertainty is going to drive a lot of people crazy if this virus starts spreading widely inside the United States, and so let us hope that such a scenario does not become a reality.

I wonder how this will affect the theft of Syrian oil by the US, Turkey and Israel. We secure the oil field with our troops. ISIS moves the oil to Turkey. The Turks move it to the ports and load it on Israeli ships. It’s sold off the books at every transaction. War. You gotta love it.
What scares the bejeesus out of me is thinking about the outbreaks of coronavirus, bird flu, and swine flu all circulating in China concurrrently. They all have a zoological component to them. What are the odds that the highly contagious coronavirus will not cross with the bird or swine flu at some point? The implications of that are what keeps me up at night…
“For example, a couple of “pranksters” in New York thought it would be really funny to spill a bucket of “coronavirus” in the middle of a crowded subway car… Who would do something like that?”
Because, there doesn’t literally have to be a corona virus, to make the 99%ers jump.
1. Terrorisim is as much about spreading fear as it is about death toll.
2.China has an estimated 1m Muslim detainees in reeducation camps.
3.The CCP controlled media doesn’t give free press to terrorist (((NO PRESS FOR YOU))) it is usually leaked by citizen journalist. There have been 100’s of attacks in Xinjiang – name two without doing a scearch.
4. CORVIN- 19 has components of a bio weapon too sophisticated for terrorist
Really? just remember bats eat insects such as mosquitoes that feed on human blood and resulting diseases can be passed on to their offspring.
I’m throwing this out there because I am amazed at all the American hating ***holes on ZH that blamed the US first without putting any thought into the possibilities.
Web bots create algorithms > algorithims control news feed.
Hysterical disinformation is dangerous.
Yet here we are nearly19 years after the collapse of the Twin Towers with nothing more than useless theory in hand.
Whether you believe the inside job theory or terrorist attack theory it matters not.
A monumental opportunity has been squandered.
For the flat earthers that believe all the newscast video, all the eyewitness accounts,all the first responders were paid shills…you might want to stop reading here, I have nothing relevant to share with you.
As one that doesn’t easily succumb to wild eyed theory my initial reaction of the 9/11 truther
movement was to investigate founding members as they might be throwing up a diversional smoke screen. Contrarily there was no need to waste time investigating government complicity; all the intra agency finger pointing was close enough to a signed confession for me. Which in and of itself was a diversion.
It didn’t take long to realize that the truther movement regardless of their intentions good or bad were doing a great disservice to our country. The analogy of firefighters showing up at a house fire ,then doing nothing to put out the fire while standing around discussing how the fire got started.
Bless their well intentioned hearts?
Government officials were more than happy to face the truthers investigation rather than being outed for the result of gross negligence they had imposed upon the American people in the name of “Political Correctness”.
Radical Islamist were allowed to come into our country, obtain drivers license, boarding passes and take flight lessons all because denying them to do so would have been considered racial discrimination along with undoubted ACLU repercussions.
911 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohamed who had been a member of the muslim brotherhood since age 16 received a BS in mechanical engineering from North Carolina Agricultural andTechnical State University.
911 terrorist Mohamed Atta, was an architectural engineer.
These guys start hanging out and nobody raises an eyebrow?
But but but Cueball that was part of the government’s plan,,,,dont you get it? To implement the patriot act and all that stuff…dont you get it?
Hell yes I get it but here’s the rub
It’s been 19 years and you got nothing but your ***k in your hand. No warrants, no idictments, no subpoena, nada.
“We the People” squandered the opportunity to stamp out political correctness, liberal immigration policies and a swamp draining that would make Trump blush , on a snowball’s chance in hell of proving 9/11 was an inside job.
Liberals should of had political correctness and liberal immigration policies shoved so far up their a** …they were crappin prayer rugs for a month
We had them on the ropes and should have pummeled the treasonous alphabet agency members that were complicit in promoting liberal subjugation but we didnt.
It is beyond the realm of my comprehension that Americans would rather continue living in a country all the while believing their government officials are mass
murderers than get off the couch and confront the destructive forces of liberalism .
when the beast is bleeding ….it is “THEN” you sever its head.
“Plan your work then work your plan. ”
Given the economic problems caused by WU FLU, the huge swarms of locusts eating up the crops in Africa, the killing off of China’s Chickens and Pigs by another virus, and our crop failures this Fall. The whole world is in a “World of Hurt”, even without this new killer.
Pray hard and watch out fur dem hogs!
Why is it that none of the non-Chinese infection cases have the nationality/race of the person conspicuously absent?

Check out (event 201) scenario. No bull. Oct 2019. Bilgates and elites pandemic scenario on Cornovirus. 2 months prior to actual happening…coincidence maybe u decide
Make sure that your senile Boomers are carrying current ID, that they present as healthy and calm, and know how to pass through chokepoints with the bare minimum level of conversation.
For me you no want to buy silk dress Joe?
Watch for forced vaccinations to cull the useless eaters in the US this summer or fall. How do you sell poison vaccines and create laws enforcing them as mandatory without widespread discontent? The same way you wake people up, you scare the hell out of them. Right now, we are seeing the alt media fear mongering like the old pros they are. None of the news media can be trusted any longer. Personel agendas and grudges are turning the entire industry into whining selfish babies with vengeance as a priority. Playing right into the pro vaccine narrative.
What goes well with Coronavirus?
Lime Disease of course.
