If All Of This Seems Familiar, That Is Because We Have Seen It All Before…

Do you LOVE America?


    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

    It is often said that history repeats itself, but usually, it doesn’t happen quite so quickly.  If you are getting a sinking feeling because current events bear such a close resemblance to early 2020, you are definitely not alone.

    All over the globe, the Omicron variant is causing a wave of tremendous fear that is unlike anything that we have seen since the first half of last year.  And based on the response so far, it appears that we haven’t learned much since then.  We are witnessing so many of the exact same patterns play out, and that could have very important implications for the year ahead of us.  Interestingly, many on social media are now reminding us that 2022 is pronounced “2020 too”, and that is certainly quite a depressing thought.

    Do you remember all of those ominous projections that “the experts” were giving us back at the very start of the COVID pandemic?

    Well, it is happening again.  Researchers at the University of Washington made headlines all over the world this week when they warned that there could be 140 million new COVID infections in the United States in January and February

    Researchers at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine revised its COVID-19 modeling to include updated information about the omicron variant.

    They found the U.S. may see a total of about 140 million new infections from Jan. 1 to March 1, 2022, peaking in late-January at about 2.8 million new daily infections.

    Wow, that sounds really bad.

    But of course we have seen similar projections before, and every time they were dead wrong.

    And just like when the pandemic first began, New York City is the epicenter for this new wave of infections…

    New York once again smashed COVID records on Wednesday, with the new Omicron variant blamed for an all-time high of 28,924 cases reported across the Empire State.

    Gov. Kathy Hochul announced the numbers at a news conference Wednesday – the fifth day in the last six where New York has broken its prior COVID diagnosis records, and the sixth day in a row that there has been more than 20,000 cases across the state.

    Doesn’t it seem odd that New York City just keeps setting a new record after new record even though so many New Yorkers have been “fully vaccinated”?

    In fact, it has been reported that a whopping 85 percent of all New York City residents have received at least one injection.

    Is there someone out there that can explain to me what is going on?

    Another parallel to the early days of the pandemic is that Bill Gates is starting to make lots of noise again.  He says that he has canceled most of his holiday plans because of Omicron, and he is warning that the “worst part of the pandemic” could be right in front of us…

    Bill Gates said he called off his holiday plans as the omicron variant ushers in what he predicts could be the “worst part of the pandemic.” He also predicted, however, that the current surge in COVID-19 cases could be over within months, and the pandemic itself may end next year “if we take the right steps.”

    “Just when it seemed like life would return to normal, we could be entering the worst part of the pandemic,” he tweeted on Tuesday. “Omicron will hit home for all of us. Close friends of mine now have it, and I’ve canceled most of my holiday plans.”

    That is funny because he originally told us that if we did everything that he was urging us to do that things would be much better by now.

    But guys like him will never admit that they were wrong.

    Thanks to all of the fear that is being generated, we are starting to see major sporting events being canceled just like we did in early 2020.  For example, the NHL has decided to “pause” their entire season

    The headlines on Monday night were stark, if unsurprising: The NHL was going to pause the 2021-22 season Wednesday, and resume after Christmas break, amid a spike in COVID-19 cases. This followed a flurry of team shutdowns that left a diminishing number of games on the schedule.

    In the aftermath, we’re left with several questions: How will teams get “unpaused”? Will there be a change in protocols? How does this impact the Olympics and All-Star Weekend?

    And The Gator Bowl is in danger of not being played because Texas A&M decided to pull out of the game at the last minute

    Texas A&M will not participate in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl because of COVID-19 issues and season-ending injuries within the program, leaving Wake Forest without an opponent as officials try to find a replacement team, it was announced Wednesday.

    “It is unfortunate, but we just don’t have enough scholarship players available to field a team,” Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher said.

    If Omicron continues to spread rapidly, will there soon be a tsunami of cancellations such as we witnessed during the early portion of last year?

    Let us hope not.

    Initially, Americans were being told that life would “return to normal” once everyone got their shots.  But now health authorities are telling us that “boosters” are needed because immunity wanes “3 to 6 months” after the initial injections…

    Breakthrough cases demonstrate how effective vaccines are and can also show how that protection changes over time. Immunity from initial vaccinations wanes 3 to 6 months later, health experts say, so boosters are crucial to fighting off the new variant.

    If you keep complying, there is always going to be another injection for you to take for the rest of your life.

    And for many of you, “the rest of your life” is going to be a whole lot shorter than you originally thought.

    There is so much fear in the air right now, and it appears to be completely unnecessary.

    In fact, a very large study just determined that Omicron appears to be much less dangerous than Delta is…

    The real-world analysis, of more than 160,000 people, comes ahead of a similar UK Government report expected to show Britons are also less likely to be severely ill with the variant.

    Omicron sufferers were also 70 percent less likely to be admitted to ICU or put on a ventilator compared to those with Delta, according to the study led by South Africa’s National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD).

    But of course, our leaders are not going to be swayed by real scientific studies such as this.

    Instead, they are just going to keep smashing the panic button because that is what the “experts” are telling them to do.

    A fresh round of restrictions, mandates, and lockdowns would be absolutely devastating for the global economy, and it would certainly set the stage for so many of the things that I have been warning about.

    Sadly, even though they have seen the damage that they have already caused, our politicians seem determined to create even more chaos.

    Very dark times are now upon us, and I have a feeling that they are about to get even darker.

      1. be afraid?????
        BE VERY AFRAID!!!!!!!!!!

      2. False

      3. So these “cases” were tested with the pcr test that has a 90%+ false positive rate? I’m poopin my pants now! 😀

        • Genius

          I post far less but I still look at the blog daily.

          Have a Merry Christmas

        • This is scamdemic. I put this all on ignore for some time now. Here in Central FL I rarely see any stoopid sheep even wearing a mask.

          PREPPER TIP
          BTW, Stock up on Motor Oil and filters ASAP. Many Auto shops in my area, are out of Motor Oil, None in the area. Even the Auto Supply stores are out. My buddy who has a shop, said he used to buy a 55 gal drum of oil for about $150 and now nearly $500. And now add the Exxon TX refinery explosion fire 2 days ago, and this will increase the scarcity of Motor oil. No oil mean you aint going any where. Need oil for your Generators, chain saws, lawn mowers, vehicles. go get it now, and stock up bigtime.

          • I might add use synthetic oil. It lasts 3 times longer and performs a lot better. A lot cheaper too when you figure in the lifespan of it. Use PRI-G stabilizer in your stored gas, it is much much better than stabil and a lot cheaper. I use both in everything. Fill your propane tanks asap also!

            • Genius

              I worked at a Mobil Oil Refinery that was next to one of their research centers that invented Mobil 1, its superiority over petroleum based oil is so great as to be off the chart. They would get brand new cars, pull the engines, micrometer the parts and run the engines under various loads and ambient conditions testing the oil along the way. At the end they broke the engine down and measured the clearances and parts again and at 200k miles the engine was still within factory specifications. A close friend of mine was a mechanic there. The auto lab looked like a hospital as clean as a whistle. At times I had a chance to eat in their 5 star cafeteria. I asked an engineer over there why was it so good. These guys had PHDs from MIT, Oxford and Cambridge as many were from India. The answer was the oil doesn’t mix (get diluted) by gasoline getting by the rings and valve seals. Second its viscosity doesn’t change much with temperature and last it tends to “stick” to parts. An engine gets wear on start up. I use nothing else.

              • thanks!

              • Good to see you Kevin, Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

      4. Scared yet??

      5. Wishing everyone a
        Scary Christmas and a
        Frightening New Year??

      6. Too many statistics that should be easily found public information seem to be completely unavailable for some reason.

        Hard to make a judgment about it one way or the other without them.

        I guess we’ll just have to trust the wisdom of our leaders and do as they direct us to do, it’s the only real option available to us.

      7. WTFU people, OMICON is a bigger laugh than Joke Biden! It’s time that we the people tell tyrants where they can stick it! Do not comply, throw the face diapering subjugating filth away! I’m living my life!

      8. I just read an article that stated the American leaders are being nicknamed “Joey”. This derogatory nickname (much cleaner than the original nickname) is reserved for those that don’t care about their constituents (citizens). Check the urban dictionary for more info.

        The tyrants never rest, neither do the patriots. Merry Christmas.

        • ” …. is reserved for those that don’t care about their constituents (citizens).”

          That would be all of them.

      9. All of this Bull Sh-t is about control and a government register of the people. Remember when the world condemned Germany and Russia for “Papers Please” but it is OK we are doing it.

      10. Merry Christmas to all.

      11. It’s a freakin cold. It goes around every year but there was never a test, or the hyped up fear. Thankfully, I retired and escaped NYC COVID CONCENTRATION CAMP.

      12. Omicron is mild COVID and can quickly impart mass herd immunity to COVID safer than any vax.

        Switzerland even has Omicron sick parties, in response to which the government has threatened 5-year jail terms.

        Naturally, this terrifies every COVID scaremonger. They will do anything to prevent this, including preserving pools of Delta in lockdowns, and cashing in one last time with a round of boosters. Latest in the arsenal is rapid flow tests.

        Government overreaction to Omicron alone can cause economic chaos as every detected case of Omicron is expected to self-quarantine.

        This could take out a critical level of otherwise healthy workers in key industries like health care and the supply chain.

        Vitamins D, C, K and B12 with zinc are the immune system’s best friends, vaxxed or not.

      13. I really don’t care anymore, I’m done complying. Here in Denver the maskholes are everywhere and I go into a store without one on, no one says a word to me because we are all tired of this Endless BS. The stores are sick of it, the police are sick of it. Masks are useless, they cause confrontation and are bacteria hubs. Stop the Madness!

      14. I am old enough to remember the “chicken pox parties” of the fifties and sixties. Mom would take all the kids to a house where chicken pox was present and get the kids all over the virus at once, as in limited the time of isolation in the household. It was very common back then before the vaccine.

      15. “Omicron variant is causing a wave of tremendous fear”
        That is the point?
