SPECIAL PODCAST: Discussing the Coronavirus with Chris Martenson, PhD

Please be sure to listen to this FREE podcast.


In this time of growing concern regarding the Chinese coronavirus outbreak, it's difficult to discern facts from fear. Fortunately, our friend Chris Martenson stopped by this morning to record this extremely informative and helpful podcast.

You've likely known of Chris for years now as he runs a terrific website called PEAK PROSPERITY. He has long been an ally in educating and warning people of the dangers within the global financial system but today Chris offers his expertise for a more pressing danger...the risk of a global pandemic due to the coronavirus sweeping China.

Chris holds a PhD in pathology from Duke University where he specialized in neurotoxicology. So if anyone is qualified to educate and warn the masses in this regard, it's him. Over the course of this call, I ask Chris to address three, primary topics:

  • How is this current virus different from recent outbreaks of SARS, H1N1 and others?
  • At what point should the average person begin to grow concerned?
  • What are prudent steps to take today in case this situation worsens?

I wanted to keep this discussion as brief as possible so that it wouldn't require you to spend too much time listening. If you want to learn more, Chris will be posting regular updates to his site in the days ahead so be sure to check there often. He posted this public link last Thursday and, if you haven't yet read it, you should do so now: https://www.peakprosperity.com/coronavirus/

He also posted this new article earlier today: https://www.peakprosperity.com/how-contagious-is-the-coronavirus/

And this video was created and posted yesterday (Friday):

Many thanks to Chris for sharing some of his extremely valuable time with us today. Please be certain to listen to this podcast and then forward the link to anyone you know who is concerned and confused by these current events. I'm confident that you...and everyone to whom you forward this podcast...will benefit from listening.

Corona Virus in SF Bay Area

My girlfriends Niece is in a Bay Area hospital, nurse told family there is a CV patient in the ICU. Personally I am taking this information as legitimate due to the poor health condition of my girlfriends niece.

What is amazing

Is the extent to which they can keep the stock price of the miners depressed

the increasing earnings announcements will be hard to beat down but they will do everything to create the illusion that the economy and dollar are strong

Ghost Cities AGXIIK!

If they had an outbreak in Freeattle, having a DNC progressive/snowflake politically correct government, they will not close down anything. The homeless will still be on the streets and inviting those with the plague, into their homes, will not be done by the Seattle City leadership.

If we cannot get the thousands off of drugs, nor become seekers of employment, how will they listen to anything? The citizens are conditioned to reject everything, good or bad. The homeless situation will be solved and that is just horrible. Lets hope that this plague dies quickly and the DNC controlled cities finally become enlightened. (Yep, I know,it will take a miracle) Jim

Recall the photos and videos of the Chinese ghost cities?

6 years ago we'd hear about ghosts cities built in China, large enough to house 60,000,000. Completely empty. Wuhan looks like that now. I can only imagine the fear felt by the people in this city and the 15-20 others shut down like this.

Now I try to picture half a dozen US cities with a total population of 25,000,000 quarantined by the government for reasons of disease or some other thing that had we, the people accepting government edict that the city had to be shut down and quarantined

It's a virtual certainty that there would not be the quietness of these Wuhan streets in New York, LA, Phoenix, Houston, Miami, Newark or Chicago

One index with its hundreds of billions traded is the oil sector. Oil is down heavily on CV fears and lower demand. Any trader on the wrong side of that trade will get bad hurt and I doubt if there is a safe unwind position. So REPO might be that indicator showing real damage to the marketplace

Cash is Trash

Let's hope this catchy phrase gets popular because it say's it all. The banks won't like it because not only is it true but explains a lot in a few words. Now we need to some how put gold & silver as a replacement for the cash. Madison Avenue we need you?

CMG reporter visits infected medical staff in Wuhan

Notice the door is sealed with a wax derivative. That means no drop in visits by staff. Notice how they talk about washing their hands at every step. Those steps are what they teach the military when dealing with chem/bio warfare. That is what you use when dealing with agents with a very high infection rate. Or am I wrong. Are these standards used when dealing with a nasty cold or something way worse. Do we see these standards when dealing with chicken pox, measles, mumps? Which all supposedly have a higher infection rate and death rate than this Coronavirus. What types of infectious vectors require this level of protection? Ask any one in the medical field.

Inside Wuhan: Daily life in China's coronavirus quarantine zone

Wuhan population 11.9 million (approx). 1/3 of Canada's population in one city. How many people did you see without some sort of protection. How many people did you see period. New York population 8.6 million. If your looking for a equivalent.

Three injured in attack on US embassy in Baghdad

At least three people were injured in a missile attack that struck the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, state-run Anadolu Agency cited an Iraqi police source as saying on Jan. 27. Unidentified persons launched five Katyusha rockets landed early on Jan. 27 in the heavily fortified Green Zone in Iraq's capital, some of which directly struck the U.S. Embassy which led to the burning of a restaurant inside the embassy compound, according to the security source.

"The shelling that targeted the American Embassy building and its surroundings wounded three people who were evacuated immediately by the American side," the police source told Anadolu Agency in condition of anonymity due to restrictions to speak to media. The source did not mention the nationality of the injured people nor the severity of their injuries.
