Former CIA Officer and counter-terrorism expert Kevin Shipp says it was not the illness caused by the coronavirus from China, but the hype about how bad it was going to be. The projected death in the US alone was to be in the millions, and that did not happen. Shipp explains, “Remember, the World Health Organization (WHO) also said 3.4% of the population was going to get it and probably die, and they were over-inflated. The problem and the serious part of what this did is cause a panic in our economy. This was bolstered by the news media and drove us into maybe the biggest economic crisis in US history because they over-inflated these statistics. It is no small thing. Our economy has been damaged so badly we will never return to normal. We might get close over a few years, but the damage has been almost insurmountable because they overstated these statistics badly.”
Does Shipp think President Trump will keep the economy shut down? Shipp says, “At first, he had to let them go to show he was handling this pandemic using experts. . . . Trump is a strategist, and I think he is doing this: As he watches the actual numbers go down, and we are down to 60,000 (projected deaths from the coronavirus) from 2.2 million. He’s sitting back waiting for it to bolster his solid case and say, okay, the numbers were way off. Let’s talk about reopening the economy and saving this country from economic destruction.”
Shipp says you cannot underestimate the role the mainstream media (MSM) played in hyping this so-called pandemic. Shipp says major media organizations have ties to the Chinese communist government, and Shipp says, “Because the mainstream media hates Trump and everything he does, they are down playing Hydroxychloroquine and accusing Trump for having blood on his hands for telling people to take it. So, the MSM is joining in the propaganda to keep people from taking a lifesaving drug that is actually saving lives. . . . If anybody has blood on their hands, it’s the MSM because they are so focused on getting Trump that they let this pandemic happen and spun the Chinese propaganda.”
Shipp also says China “now has severe economic problems” and that “China may escalate this situation close to war. Then, this comes down to a real foreign policy issue for the Trump Administration because China is going to be desperate. When countries are economically desperate, history shows they go to war.”
Attorney General William Barr recently talked about the ongoing investigation on the failed coup on President Trump by top members of the FBI, DOJ and CIA. Barr, who many critics thought was not doing enough to bring the coup plotters to justice, said, “If people broke the law, and we can establish that with the evidence, they will be prosecuted. . .” Shipp says, “This is very encouraging. Durham is targeting former CIA Director John Brennan, and that may be the one that is indicted because of the provable things Brennan has done.”
