    CHARGE: Fauci is the Front for Deep State Pharma: They Want Top-Down Governance of Our Bloodstreams https://www.targetliberty.com/2020/04/charge-fauci-is-front-for-deep-state.html Dr. V. A. Shiva Ayyadurai holds four degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering and computer science; a master's degree in visual studies from the MIT Media Laboratory on scientific visualization; concurrently, he completed another master's degree in mechanical engineering and in 2007, he obtained a Ph.D. in biological engineering in systems biology, with his thesis focusing on modeling the whole cell by integrating molecular pathway models. He is also a Fulbright grant recipient. The below video will shock you. Find the time to watch, the deeper into the video you get the more it will shock you, he exposes a lot (54 minutes and 38 seconds long). I agree with about 90% of what he says (The part about China plotting to buy up America is a real stretch).

    Yep, they're pumping so much money into the system that it's propping up the markets in nominal terms (the numbers are going up) but each dollar is losing value because there are so many more of them. Basically each time they print money, your share of the overall amount of dollars in circulation is being diluted.

    I haven't fully gone through this but it looks pretty tyrannical: https://www.aei.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/National-Coronavirus-Response-a-Road-Map-to-Recovering.pdf Page 2: Establish Immune Protection and Lift Physical Distancing During Phase III. Physical distancing restrictions and other Phase II measures can be lifted when safe and effective tools for mitigating the risk of COVID-19 are available, including broad surveillance, therapeutics that can rescue patients with significant disease or prevent serious illness in those most at risk, or a safe and effective vaccine.

    Exactly! He's out in the media acting like he's some authority, no doubt because of the money he's donated. But as we all know, sometimes these people use their donations as a PR campaign to hide their evil. Like Jimmy Saville and his "charitable work" for example.

    There are those of us who think that Bill Gates is a eugenicist (note that his father was the head of "Planned Parenthood"). But whatever you think about that, what exactly is 10 weeks (the upper limit of his 6-10 week range) of hardcore social isolation in the USA going to do? It's unrealistic to think that the entire population is going to stand a minimum of 6 feet away from each other for any length of time (even 1 day), let alone 10 weeks! And even if we assume it would be effective and somehow it happened, how would it be effective if the rest of the world weren't doing the same thing? I mean, unless the virus is 100% killed everywhere on the entire planet (which we'd have no way to know), how can it be eradicated when it can just exist on one surface in the entire planet and then start spreading like wildfire (assuming that it's as contagious as we're being told)? Plus even if it were killed on every surface on the entire planet, what about all of those "asymptomatic carriers"? https://www.the-sun.com/news/597859/bill-gates-warns-10-week-lockdown/

    So when I see a financial website showing that the U.S. 10 year treasury is priced at 0.850, that price is related to the secondary market, not the primary market? If so, how do they come up with that rate (I'm looking for a high level explanation)? Is it some kind of aggregate of all the 10 year treasuries out there and how they're trading? I'm guessing it's not that because some treasuries might be close to maturing whereas others have the full 10 years to go? But this is the question that I think I was ultimately driving at in my original post. I understand certain things about treasuries but stuff like this (which, seemingly, should be straightforward) seems vague and more complex than I initially thought.

    This might be a very dumb question but is there such a thing as "the interest rate"? I mean, I understand what a "rate of interest" is and the idea of how risk and duration affect it. But I'm wondering is there something specific called "the interest rate". Maybe it's the Federal Funds Rate (which I know is a target range and the Fed uses open market operations to get the overnight lending rate between banks to that target).

    The secondary market for rates is basically "after the bonds have already initially been purchased"? In other words, the Primary Dealers have already sold the bonds and now someone else want to buy them? I think I have a sense of how the prices of those bonds trade. Basically, if rates in the current day are different from the rate stated on the bond (the one that is already "out there", already sold by a primary dealer into the marketplace) then the price of the bond will fluctuate to make up for the difference (e.g. if yields in the present day are higher than the yield stated on the bond then you could just buy a "current day" bond with the higher yield. So the seller of the secondary market bond has to charge you less to compensate you). Is that correct? I still don't quite understand how the primary market works but I have a rough sense of it (obviously the usual mix of supply/demand sets the rates).

    If I understand this correctly, when the government needs to raise money, they sell treasuries. The Fed holds an auction and buyers (I think mostly foreign governments) bid on these treasuries. However, I'm pretty sure I heard (on a George Gammon podcast) that the yield of these treasuries depends on how much demand there is for them in the auction. While I know that bond prices and bond yields are inverse, what exactly are the potential buyers bidding on if they don't know what the yield will be? Are they bidding on a "10 year treasury" but don't know what the yield on that treasury is until after the auction is complete???

    Not that this is really addressing the OP's point but there's a setting called "Autoplay" that you can turn off if you don't want another video to automatically play after the one you're currently watching ends. As for them trying to co-opt Ron's audience, I'm sure they are trying to.

    The quote below is from Saul Alinsky's "Rules For Radicals". Not that I'm not a fan of his but I do think the quote below is very interesting, especially when you consider that 1.3 billion people in India are on lockdown right now. And while many probably agree with it (right now, at least) as a "safety measure", you have to wonder what will happen if they start to feel enslaved. Will they believe that they have to power to change the situation? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rules_for_Radicals "Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have."

    I think I'm in agreement with you on "the beginning of the end". But regardless, we may as well keep on trying to get people to question what they're being told and see what happens. As bleak things look right now, my hunch is that there's a tipping point where people might start to wake up. I mean, in India, they have 10 deaths from the Coronavirus but there are 1.3 billion people in lockdown (a ratio of 130M people in lockdown per death). Insane!

    The only positive thing that might come from this is that maybe (and I only say maybe) people will realize how draconian this is. And, over time, they'll start to wake up as to what is happening to our civil liberties.

    This was my exact first thought as well. When I texted a couple of friends about it, one completely dismissed the concern. I don't think people understand what's going on right now. The whole "asymptomatic carrier" thing basically means anyone can be a terrorist.
