A dark winter indeed
June 22, 2001. A group of well-known US officials and a handful of senior policymakers gathered at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland for an exercise that simulated a biological weapons attack on the continental United States – an outbreak of deadly smallpox. The simulation was called Operation Dark Winter and it was conducted to gauge how senior leaders would respond to such an attack.
The disease is different, but the simulated outcome bears an eerie resemblance to what has transpired as a result of COVID-19. Leaders hampered by an inability to address a crisis they hadn’t foreseen; national decision-making driven by data and expertise from the medical and public health sectors; management options limited by the swift and unpredictable spread of the disease (and a limited stockpile of vaccines); a health care system that lacks the surge capacity to deal with mass casualties; increased tensions between state and federal authorities; the rapid spread of misinformation on cures and treatments for the outbreak; the difficult of controlling unpredicted flights of civilians from infected areas; domestic turmoil sparked by political uncertainty and an increasing reliance on the willingness (and unwillingness in some areas) of individual citizens to self-quarantine to stop the spread of the contagion.
“Dark Winter was an exercise designed to push the system to failure in order to learn about its vulnerabilities,” said Andrew Lakoff, a professor of sociology at the University of Southern California. “The lessons of Dark Winter shaped biological preparedness policy for the next 10 years, but it is always difficult to ensure that preparedness is sustained over time.” Since the simulation took place, Dark Winter has regularly been cited by its designers and participants as the clearest exhibit of the spiraling stresses and potential social collapse that could be sparked by a public health crisis.
Back in April 2018, Bill Gates (who seems to have switched interest from computing to vaccinating the entire planet) said: There is one area, though, where the world isn’t making much progress and that’s pandemic preparedness. This should concern us all, because if history has taught us anything, it’s that there will be another deadly global pandemic.
The latest simulation to be carried out was called Event 201, which occurred in October 2019. It simulated a scenario involving a new coronavirus that developed in pigs in South America and then infected farmers. The virus spread around the world, with some people developing mild flu-like symptoms, while others perished. Key players in the event were Johns Hopkins Centre for Health Security (also involved in Dark Winter), the World Economic Forum (who are calling for a great economic reset which will replace capitalism with socialism) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The board members go on to discuss the overwhelming amounts of disinformation and misinformation circulating over the internet. They then go on to discuss whether internet shutdowns would be necessary to deal with “fake news”.
What has people concerned is that President-Elect Biden (assuming Trump is unsuccessful in challenging the result) is now dropping the phrase “dark winter” into his speeches. It is common for people to speak particular phrases and show hand signals that are understood as signs by globalist cronies. We therefore take this to mean that Americans are about to find that the Biden administration is a puppet for the globalist elites who, if they get their way, will continue to roll out their deadly agenda on an unsuspecting public.
