Current pandemic events analyzed by CIA Operative

Recent debate swirling over the pandemic has many confused. New discoveries, scientists at odds, Governors abusing power, economic distress and the escalating use of COVID as a political weapon – what is going on here? Brad Johnson, retired Senior CIA Operative and President for Intelligence Reform, applies his experience in an analysis of current events.

 


00:00
Brad Johnson it is May 24 of 2020 and we
00:06
are all being so brutally fire-hosed by
00:09
so much information contradictory
00:11
information on the whole Kovach thing
00:13
and for that matter the hydroxyl
00:17
chloroquine issue which has become
00:19
entirely political and not medical it
00:21
seems to me anyway that the only thing
00:24
it looks like is you can know
00:25
definitively is that the initial model
00:28
which led to all of these policies was
00:31
grotesquely wrong by three orders of
00:33
magnitude and they haven’t changed those
00:36
policies in the wake of real data this
00:40
looks more like a threat to freedom than
00:42
a medical safety issue what do you think
00:44
at this point excuse me yeah it’s this
00:47
weird conglomeration of all of these
00:51
things that you’ve kind of mentioned and
00:52
just kind of to lay out some of the
00:54
background on these things and kind of
00:56
what’s going on and what I find
00:58
interesting and kind of bring to bear
01:00
based on my background and intelligence
01:02
and overseas information those sorts of
01:05
things but just for example I mean the
01:07
the two main people that are out there
01:08
that have been speaking about this that
01:10
are supposed to be representing the US
01:12
government are the scarf lady and doctor
01:15
pouchy and it was interesting that they
01:19
were both speaking with National
01:21
Institute of Health NIH well you know
01:22
maybe ten days ago two weeks ago
01:24
something along those lines now and the
01:26
scarf lady was speaking to him earlier
01:28
in the morning and made some comment to
01:30
the effect of your guys’s numbers are
01:33
off by about 25% she said they’re too
01:36
high you’re you’re overestimating
01:38
overstating the number of people that
01:39
have been killed by a coma in nineteen
01:42
by about 25% then bizarre later that
01:45
afternoon doctor foul she’s talking to
01:48
those same guys and these are public
01:50
discussions going on so there’s records
01:52
of all of this
01:52
doctor foul she says he agrees you know
01:55
you guys are off by 25% but he disagrees
01:58
in which direction he says you’re under
02:00
estimating the number of people that are
02:03
actually killed by 25%
02:04
so even between the two top experts that
02:07
we’re supposed to have they’re in
02:09
disagreement by
02:10
50% of how many deaths are actually
02:13
supposed to be out there related to Cove
02:14
in nineteen so we all agree on one thing
02:18
the information that we’re getting isn’t
02:20
right and you although would be lied to
02:23
by China the problem is that here and I
02:26
would say this this is a shared problem
02:29
that we have in the United States and
02:32
Canada and the EU and that is is
02:35
precisely what you just stated that this
02:37
has become so political that you can’t
02:40
trust what you’re told
02:41
we have even there’s even information
02:43
out there that Bill Gates and dr. pouchy
02:46
somehow are connected through ownership
02:49
of some of these medicines for that our
02:54
treatment out there and one of the
02:56
reasons they’re pushing for this so much
02:57
is that they’re going to benefit
03:00
financially from it now I don’t know if
03:02
that’s true but there’s that information
03:04
out there that’s been talked about by a
03:06
lot of people in the blogosphere can it
03:08
not my area so I haven’t really tried to
03:10
delve into it but it is an interesting
03:12
line of thought in questioning and on
03:15
the other hand you have a lot of people
03:17
that are clearly trying to take
03:18
advantage of it politically so you have
03:21
this full range of people that are maybe
03:23
just some are just trying to honestly do
03:25
what they think is best and have a hard
03:27
time deciding based on their just
03:29
scattered information it’s out there I
03:31
would put President Donald Trump in that
03:33
category he’s trying to do what’s best
03:35
doing the best he can and he’s got a lot
03:38
of conflicting stories and conflicting
03:40
information and you know and you’ve got
03:43
people at the other end like the
03:44
governor of New York and the governor of
03:46
Virginia for example that are really
03:49
politically motivated and how they’re
03:51
handing all of this and you’ve got a few
03:54
Democratic governors like in Michigan
03:57
those people clearly politically
03:59
motivated and what they want to do is
04:01
keep everything under check as long as
04:03
they can to damage the economy as much
04:06
as they can because they hate Trump so
04:08
for them their priority is get Trump
04:10
versus protect the people and in
04:13
Virginia for example something we’ve
04:14
talked about before the governor here
04:17
one of his big Bugaboos has been guns
04:19
he’s very anti Second Amendment and
04:22
doesn’t care what the Constitution says
04:24
doesn’t care about any of that and what
04:26
he’s done is used Co mid-nineteen to
04:28
target guns ad Cuomo in New York I mean
04:33
I’m not sure that guy may end up getting
04:35
charged with manslaughter out of this we
04:38
just saw it was a fairly big news item
04:39
here in the United States
04:41
Janice Dean who’s the weather woman the
04:44
meteorologist on Fox News in the
04:46
mornings I don’t know if she’s on all
04:48
day or what but she’s in on at least in
04:50
the mornings her parents were in one of
04:52
the senior homes and for older people in
04:55
New York and those are one of the places
04:57
where Governor Cuomo forced them to take
05:00
Kovac patients and all of those places
05:04
resisted greatly and they were at public
05:05
with this this was all over the news
05:07
saying we can’t handle it we’re not set
05:09
up for it we can’t protect our senior
05:10
citizens that are here we cannot do it
05:12
the governor said don’t care what you
05:14
think or want you’re doing it anyway so
05:17
he forced those people in there were
05:18
most of the people that have died the
05:21
the largest center of people dying out
05:24
of kovat in New York are out of those
05:25
places and so I mean there’s direct
05:28
cause and effect of his decisions killed
05:31
those people which seems to me to be
05:34
fairly good definition of manslaughter I
05:36
mean and he did it knowing there was
05:39
risk because all of these instance they
05:42
the places where the old people were
05:44
being kept that were forced to take the
05:46
coated patients all said so publicly so
05:48
I mean I don’t remember it so and I’m
05:50
not you know I’m not that close to New
05:52
York so the governor can’t you know say
05:54
oh gee I even didn’t know so I
05:57
he’s got some problems coming out of
05:59
this politically but you can see his
06:01
daily briefings and all of us were
06:03
designed to you know bring publicity to
06:07
himself and if you look at how he
06:09
handled everything I think was clearly
06:11
grandstanding whereas you have other
06:13
people like the governor of Florida
06:16
who’s actually done a good job and if
06:18
you look at sort of what is the the
06:20
disparity between a Republican and a
06:23
Democrat on there
06:24
I love it and I think there’s a clear
06:26
pattern of Democrats taking advantage of
06:29
it to damage the economy economy to
06:31
attack Trump and I think you have the
06:33
Republicans who are under that political
06:36
pressure to do something for their party
06:40
and our sis just trying to do the right
06:41
thing so de Santos basically opened up a
06:43
lot of stuff including beaches in
06:45
Florida and one of the things that
06:48
nobody but nobody talks about and
06:50
probably everyone who watches this video
06:52
will learn something right now and that
06:54
is that a virus is not a living entity
06:57
it’s not like a germ that if you put it
07:00
on the right places it grows and spreads
07:02
and procreates and creates new baby
07:05
little germs that rub and create more
07:07
baby little germs and it it goes out and
07:10
out and on and on and just grows and
07:11
grows and grows a virus is basically
07:14
chemistry that takes place not a living
07:16
entity so if you have the Canadian virus
07:21
or a virus out there someplace that’s a
07:24
chemistry thing and so if UV rays hit it
07:27
it it damages it it does it it destroys
07:31
it
07:31
I wouldn’t say kills it because that’s
07:33
what everybody out there in the press is
07:35
saying they say oh you got to do this to
07:36
kill it you under that to kill it well
07:37
it’s not a living thing it cannot
07:39
recreate itself by itself and it’s just
07:44
it’s just not a living thing it requires
07:47
host cells and it invades and changes
07:51
those host cells and those host cells
07:53
then are duplicating themselves and
07:57
through that means the virus is spread
08:00
because once that that virus invades
08:02
those cells those cells are the ones
08:04
that are doing all of the procreation
08:06
and spreading of the virus to put it
08:08
back out there and that’s why people
08:10
when they cough that that puts that
08:13
virus back out into the environment and
08:15
but it’s not a living thing it’s not so
08:19
one of the very best things one of the
08:21
quickest ways to damage it is to be out
08:23
in UV rays to be outside and yet what
08:26
are all the recommendations in New York
08:27
stay inside and it’ll hide in place and
08:31
for example these masks too in
08:34
Eastern Europe in the places like I said
08:36
now politically here in the EU Canada in
08:39
the United States it’s clearly all
08:41
political so we just don’t know we’re
08:43
not getting the facts laid out there
08:44
bare bones for us to just look at as a
08:47
as a people in Eastern Europe they don’t
08:49
have that axe to grind so you don’t see
08:52
those maneuverings going on so for
08:54
example guidelines there are don’t wear
08:57
those masks more than two hours because
08:59
what does that do it stops the UV rays
09:01
to heating you and so it creates an
09:04
environment for that virus to continue
09:08
undamaged or undestroyed that’s that’s
09:12
that what they’re suggesting out there
09:15
and let me just take a little snapshot
09:16
example Serbia now this is again as I
09:20
say I followed a lot of news they have a
09:22
lot of English news reporting all over
09:24
the world but many many countries have
09:26
English newspapers and things where you
09:28
can kind of follow what’s going on even
09:31
outside of the general in
09:32
english-speaking countries in Serbia for
09:35
example they have not had a single new
09:37
case for 11 days and look at their
09:40
policies are in line with what was done
09:42
in Florida and for example now most a
09:46
lot of stuff is open now they’ve had
09:47
some social distancing and they do all
09:49
that but it’s like get outside when you
09:50
can in the Sun because ultraviolet rays
09:53
destroy the cove at 19:00 virus and so
09:56
they encourage that sort of thing so if
09:58
you’re out of the beach and there’s any
09:59
space between you it only takes seconds
10:02
for the UV rays to damaging and destroy
10:05
coating 19 so one of the safest places
10:07
to be is outside on the beach and so
10:10
we’ve seen places like Florida that
10:12
never really got hit that hard and New
10:14
York would stay inside and shelter where
10:16
you’re under perfect circumstances
10:17
there’s no UV rate not as many UV rays
10:20
that can get inside
10:22
so those things continue to exist and
10:24
those masks that you put on if you’re
10:25
wearing them for more than two hours
10:26
that’s the perfect spot to maintain Cove
10:29
in 19 as viable
10:31
whereas if you had it off you’d actually
10:32
be safer after a period of time now yes
10:36
it contains somebody you know from
10:37
coughing but if that person were to go
10:39
outside the first thing they need to do
10:40
is take that mask off throw it away and
10:43
then
10:43
go back inside someplace put it back on
10:45
but that’s not what anybody’s saying and
10:47
in the hospitals and stuff those gloves
10:49
they they all know that so those they
10:51
take off after every time they use it
10:52
we’ve all seen doctors after they see
10:55
one patient they take off those clothes
10:56
and throw them away why well one of the
10:58
reasons is there’s always been viruses
10:59
and they know that those will stay on
11:01
those plastic gloves perfectly well so
11:03
they take them off and throw them away
11:04
to get them out of the way now as far as
11:07
I can tell
11:09
99% of everything I see around me with
11:12
masks and gloves is pure medical theater
11:16
I agree but I wouldn’t say it’s medical
11:18
theater I would say it’s political
11:20
theater
11:20
they’re doing that because one of the
11:22
best ways to use propaganda is to use it
11:27
as a way to force people to take actions
11:31
in line with your political motives you
11:34
know make them you know clap their hands
11:36
out in public at 10 o’clock or whatever
11:37
it is that you make them do it’s it
11:39
shows that active support for what
11:43
they’re doing and that’s what those max
11:44
masks are and you now see that being
11:47
used the masks and the gloves and things
11:49
like that
11:50
are political in downtown DC which I
11:53
don’t know of that often but in downtown
11:55
DC you now which is very very very
11:58
liberal very leftist you see people
12:00
wandering neighborhoods looking for
12:01
children out playing without a mask and
12:03
they call authorities on so I mean this
12:05
is a political tool being used and being
12:09
used by people against other people and
12:11
being used by politicians to control
12:13
people and to make them fall in line so
12:16
it’s clearly being a a political tool
12:18
one of the other things I want to
12:19
mention for example in Serbia just
12:21
because I was using them as the as an
12:23
example for this you see for example
12:26
what they would do is the those people
12:29
on the older people especially if
12:31
they’ve you know obesity and kidney
12:33
disease and all of these things that
12:35
where there is clear information that
12:37
those are the greatest asks at-risk
12:39
people and those are the ones dying for
12:41
the most part in any large numbers those
12:45
are the target audience if you will of
12:46
this virus those guys have been given
12:49
special hours at night so the grocery
12:51
stores are all open for example in the
12:53
pharmacies and all these things are all
12:54
up
12:55
the general public can go there during
12:57
the day is normal but it’s the 65 and up
12:59
crowd at 1 a.m. for 3 or 4 hours or 2
13:03
hours whatever it is I’m not sure but
13:05
for multiple hour period those people
13:08
who are generally speaking the retired
13:09
crowd that’s all open only for them to
13:14
keep them separate from the general
13:15
population and as I said they’re down
13:18
where there’s been not a single new case
13:20
in that entire country for 11 days now
13:23
and it’s just working you know that’s
13:26
what works and yet that’s what’s you
13:29
know being discouraged here in the
13:31
United States and the EU and Canada for
13:33
political motives and it just goes to
13:36
show it’s one of the things I say quite
13:37
often you cannot trust leftist socialist
13:41
the Liberals in the United States but
13:43
the leftist socialists in any of these
13:46
countries on national security issues or
13:49
economic issues because that is not
13:52
their view of the world they don’t make
13:54
economic decisions based on economic
13:56
factors they make economic decisions
13:58
based on political factors they make
14:01
national security decisions based on
14:03
political factors not national security
14:05
factors so they cannot be trusted and
14:08
should never be in these positions of
14:10
authority for exactly the reasons we’re
14:13
seeing now one other thing too one of
14:15
the big deals was that President Trump
14:17
has been taking this chloroquine
14:19
medicine which is is a malaria pill and
14:22
all the people the next day on the press
14:25
here the United States I mean the the
14:26
the left-wing media CNN ABC MSNBC those
14:31
guys they’re all out there saying oh
14:33
this is crazy this is a death wish that
14:35
can kill him they even went so far to
14:37
say he’s lying to us because of this
14:40
it’s not even true that he’s taking him
14:42
because it would kill him immediately so
14:44
therefore he’s lying
14:45
so they were going I would just like I
14:47
would just like to mention that if all
14:49
of the left-wing press and all of these
14:52
leftist anti Trump people if they really
14:55
believed that chloroquine was bad and
14:58
was lethal they’d be thrilled Trump was
15:00
– yeah that’s a good point a very solid
15:02
point yeah very true
15:05
well one final thing on that
15:06
to say I mean this medicine is not new
15:08
it’s been around for decades and decades
15:10
I have many times taking this pill
15:13
personally it is standard-issue stuff
15:17
for all of the federal government if you
15:20
travel to areas where malaria is
15:22
prevalent and I’ve taken it many times I
15:25
never kept track because it was just so
15:28
standard SOP to take this stuff but
15:32
everybody in State Department military
15:34
CIA FBI
15:36
it doesn’t matter whoever they are if
15:38
they were even traveling for a short
15:40
period of time to these countries are
15:42
going to stay PCs for a full tour they
15:45
were issued that medicine to take and
15:49
you had to state start taking it I I’ve
15:52
kind of forgotten like I said that I you
15:53
know it was one of those things I didn’t
15:55
pay any attention to you know go you go
15:57
get your yellow fever shot updated and
16:00
you’re all these shots that you have to
16:02
go to these countries you get them
16:03
updated and one of the things is you
16:04
were issued this medicine so I don’t
16:07
really remember but something like a
16:08
week or two before you go before you
16:10
travel to X country you had to start
16:12
taking those pills and there was periods
16:14
of time where you had to take him daily
16:16
and then it got better and you would
16:17
take in weekly and things like that so
16:19
they’ve evolved and improved these
16:21
medicines but I’ve been on it lots of
16:23
times I know maybe a dozen times in my
16:25
life I’ve been on that medicine and I
16:27
know hundreds of people if not thousands
16:30
that have been on this medicine as well
16:32
because like I said standard-issue stuff
16:35
everybody takes it it’s been and it’s
16:37
been for decades and I’m not talking 20
16:40
years it’s 49 oh 40 years something
16:43
along those lines where people have been
16:44
taking this stuff and nobody’s been
16:46
dropping over dead out of all those
16:47
people I know nobody ever had any sort
16:49
of side effect or problem I mean it and
16:52
just you know granted it’s anecdotal but
16:54
over you know there’s hundreds maybe
16:56
thousands of people that I know and have
16:58
not on one of them have I ever heard of
17:00
anybody having a problem and it was all
17:01
the doctor said no no you’ve got to take
17:03
this so you know I just don’t understand
17:06
how we’ve led in our society this sort
17:10
of wacky craziness come out of the media
17:12
that’s just black and white lies and
17:15
they criticized Trump for line and
17:17
therefore you know what comes out of the

the the south end of a northbound bow on
17:23
this stuff and and yet they get away
17:26
with it it’s just wacky just add one
17:30
data point to your earlier thesis the
17:34
Canadian province of New Brunswick has
17:37
enjoyed zero deaths from Kovac 19 and
17:40
was through just two methods one was
17:43
early lockdown of the province and
17:45
second was early treatment of all cases
17:48
with high drops of chloroquine and zinc
17:51
and they the premiere of that province
17:56
is a small C and capital C conservative
17:59
and just did things rationally and yes
18:04
zero and this is the thing where this is
18:06
actually pure science in France they had
18:08
a very large not a very large study they
18:10
had a relatively small study but it was
18:11
a a couple of score of people perhaps
18:14
something along those lines who had
18:17
coded nineteen were given those precise
18:19
medicines just as you say was done in
18:21
Brunswick and had another percent cure
18:23
rate now that seems like data to me you
18:27
know okay granted I’m not a doctor or
18:29
researcher but when you’re starting 100
18:31
percent cure rate for things you know
18:34
you ought to stay up and pay attention
18:35
but again is there are there elements
18:37
here like doctor
18:40
ouchy and others that are making money
18:44
off of this and so they want the
18:45
treatment to go the way that they want
18:47
not off of this old medicine the
18:49
chloroquine medicine I mean there’s just
18:51
so much out there but clearly the left
18:54
in the United States is anti science
18:57
they say there the pro science people
18:59
but they’re the anti science and I don’t
19:03
care what your politics are you cannot
19:05
look at this and be confused as to who
19:08
is trying to cover up the real science
19:10
and it’s the left and who is trying to
19:13
get to the real side
19:14
and have it published and made public
19:16
for all of us to look at and that’s the
19:19
conservatives so it just it’s black and
19:22
white here that is again I repeat the
19:25
left and the Socialists cannot be
19:28
trusted in positions of responsibility
19:29
and authority anywhere it’s too
19:33
dangerous
19:33
it just gets too many people killed Brad
19:38
Johnson thank you very much for that
19:39
update it is so refreshing to hear
19:41
something which has you know gluten
19:44
solid chunks of reason built into it on
19:46
this issue thank you
19:55
you

1 thought on “Current pandemic events analyzed by CIA Operative

  1. A couple of points –

    1) An epidemiologist with a non-profit in the healthcare industry told me today that when a person dies and COVID is listed as a 2nd or 3rd line cause of death, it is considered a COVID death. We are comparing apples and oranges when it comes to COVID deaths. It will take a while for standardized reporting and for data to be corrected, especially given the political atmosphere in which we are living in today.

    2) You are correct about long-term care facilities… 80% of US COVID mortality cases occur in the population that is over 65. Two million in the US are living in these facilities. 43% of the US COVID deaths are in long-term care facilities. Eliminate the long-term care deaths, and then examine the data… it indicates this is a bad virus year, but it is not as bad as the politicians would like us to believe.

    3) If you close churches where people can turn for community and support, what is left? Big Government! We need to look at the long-term strategy of the left.
