While I have supported Donald J. Trump I find it quite strange that he started killing jobs and the economy in the name of COVID-19 in March, first it was “Fourteen Days to Stop the Spread” then he changed his tune because of his advisers, “Thirty-Days to Stop the Spread” then instead of giving federal guidelines to the states he just cut the states loose to do whatever the hell they wanted to do, so governors became dictators local governments became their enforcers and the American people the VICTIMS.
He also claims that he “Shutdown” the economy, but that is not all together true. There is one segment of the economy that has been booming, and has NEVER closed, other than for Good Friday and that is the Stock Market.
For those of you who do not understand how the market works (this is true the world over) the markets in the U.S open every weekday morning as follows:
Equity Options 9:30 a.m. ET – 4:00 p.m. ET
Index Options 9:30 a.m. ET – 4:00 p.m. ET
Index Exceptions: MNX, NDX 9:30 a.m. ET – 4:15 p.m.
ET ETN Options: GAZ, OIL, VXX, VXZ 9:30 a.m. ET – 4:15 p.m. ET
However, if you look at the link I put in, the markets are pretty much open 24/7.
Now, the people who work for the exchanges cannot work remotely, it’s impossible, these people are floor traders and runners there is NO way they can practice social distancing nor can they wear masks. The markets are broken up into what are called “Pits” in these “Pits” hundreds of people per pit, are yelling and screaming to traders, “Buy” “Sell” and this goes on ALL day.
Yet we haven’t heard of a single case of COVID-19 infecting or killing anyone in the market… isn’t that odd? Are they immune? Trading stocks on the exchange is still a human feat you can place your orders online to buy and sell but when the rubber meets the road, that order is executed by a living human being on the floor of the stock market, and they haven’t been shut down…. could it be because the 1% control the world; and that while we the 99% suffer, unemployment, food rationing, odious restrictions of our constitutional rights, our small businesses the backbone of the American economy, devastated many NEVER to reopen, Americans on the edge of losing their homes whether, they have a mortgage or they rent, there is NO income and people can’t live without an income, those bills keep coming in and millions are on the brink of homelessness. We are nothing more than pawns to be manipulated through fear and misinformation in order to control US and the tool is the specter of COVID-19.
The 1% are doing GREAT, the stock market is rising, stocks are strong and people are making millions even billions of dollars, but not US. So, what really is going on, could it be that our masters the 1% have figured out a way to strike down our civil rights? Control the masses through terror using a biased MSM to spread as much misinformation as possible to terrify the American people about a virus that was WAY over hyped and that changes from day to day on how deadly it is aided by the new world superpower social media for their bidding?
Let’s look at a little history, in 2009 then Vice President Joe Biden was put in charge of the H1N1 pandemic that killed 150 thousand Americans, and sickened over 60 million people worldwide remember when they closed down the economy? Me either, how about, the Chinese SARS outbreak of 03, nope, wait how about the flu H2N2 virus pandemic of 58-59 globally one point one million people died and 166,000 in the US, do you remember when the government closed down the economy then? Neither do I, how about the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918-1919 that killed 675,000 in the US infected 500 million people worldwide a quarter of the world’s population at the time, and globally killed 50 million people did they close down the world economy and US economy? NO!
So, what makes SARS-COV-2 now COVID-19 so deadly, so dangerous, that the entire country and world had to be shut down, and the rights of Americans be trampled, business forced by government to close, schools shuddered, people ordered to shelter in their homes, forcibly wear masks, gloves, compulsively wash their hands? Not a damn thing this virus is NOTHING!
As of this writing, COVID-19 has infected 2.2 million people worldwide, and the worldwide death toll is 287,000, the US death toll is supposedly, according to the US government, 82,000 deaths, so of the global death toll, the US has had 31% of the total deaths in the world? China is not even factored into these numbers as no one knows how many have died in the communist country. So, in the US, out of a national population of 335 million people, 82,000 have died of COVID-19. More people die in the US of heart attacks, cancer, stroke and suicide a day than have died of COVID-19 total to date, so in perspective, the percentage of people nationwide who have died of COVID-19 is, 0.07% (I tried to factor the number it’s actually more like 0.007%) so COVID-19 is a threat to Americans? Um… NO… the government on the other hand IS!
Based on the history I just provided it can be easily researched and validated it what the government did, NEVER SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED! Yet we did not even put up any resistance the American people bought this garbage hook, line, and sinker how on earth could the American people roll over and give up their constitutional rights?
In fact, at NO time in US history has the federal, state, local government EVER closed down the economy or closed private businesses and forced American citizens to heel to local state and federal laws, laws created on the fly by state and local governments that are being enforced by force, fines, arrest, even imprisonment, for disobeying the government, the federal and state governments have NEVER done such a thing in US history.
It is in fact, unheard of the, U.S. Constitution was framed by the founders to keep this from happening yet it did and we are at the point of no return, for the first time since the American Revolutionary War, the rights of the people have been stripped from them and they allowed it. What is the solution?
Thomas Jefferson foresaw this situation when he wrote, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time, to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
Well my fellow Americans we are there, we have only two choices bow to our new masters and allow the government to strip us of our rights (this is a precedent setting moment in U.S. history it has opened the door allowing federal, state, and local governments to forever be our masters and strip us of not only our constitutional rights but our dignity and our sovereignty) if left alone government has taken over, and the United States of America has ceased to exist.
The other option? It is the most distasteful and haunting of ALL, that is to FIGHT, to take back our freedom, and by FIGHT, I’m not talking about holding a sign or pouting around government offices, it means that Americans across this country pick up and bear arms and take down the government, federal, state, local. There are no other good options, the people have no voice government now controls every aspect of our lives there is no diplomacy, its fight or be slaves to tyrants, who as of right now, can tell you were can and can’t go, what you can and can’t do, were you can and can’t eat, gather, worship, celebrate, what businesses are allowed to be open under strict government control, with swift harsh punishments for any who disobey, you can be arrested and imprisoned by your new masters you must obey their will and laws, as they create them and as they see fit to impose them on you at their will and you have NO recourse.
As of this moment, freedom is on life support, and government has the power to pull the plug. We have only two options surrender our freedom, or FIGHT, to save and preserve it!
This was also reported by the NRA, but the media has refused to report on it. WHY? Because it is an example of what happens when an active shooter meets a legally armed citizen. This isn’t a HOT topic for the media; they want blood, carnage, and the mass murder of innocent “unarmed” people to report about. It makes for much more compelling news and fuels the outcry to disarm Americans. A story about a guy who pulled a gun at a club, started shooting, and ended up being shot by an armed civilian who saved the lives of many is not what liberals want Americans to see.
Do you think that the man who shot the active shooter and stopped what could have been another mass rampage will be invited to Obama’s White House and applauded for his heroics? Hell no… an American citizen legally armed thwarting an active shooter undermines what Obama and the ‘demoncrats’ want – Americans disarmed and the second amendment amended or abolished.
A recent article I came across on ABC: Read It HereNow for my thoughts:
Jerry Brown is a recurrent nightmare for California. This idiot was governor of California after Reagan was elected president in 1981. He is a perfect example of the old saying, “He who forgets the past is doomed to repeat it.”
I do believe that Jerry Brown has some form of dementia. He’s old; he rarely makes sense, now he has just made California the most dangerous state in the U.S. for its law abiding citizens. San Bernardino is the murder capital of California followed by Oakland. Both cities also have the most corrupt police departments in the state.These laws are not going to do anything but put law abiding citizens in even more danger.
Brown and his ‘demoncratic’ cohorts don’t get it. Criminals don’t obey laws. That’s why they are criminals. His ban, and demand that law abiding citizens give up their second amendment rights and surrender their ammunition clips, which hold more than ten rounds, to the state, is nuts. Why not pass a law that California is a “gun-free zone?” Then criminals and mass killers could just murder with impunity as ALL citizens would be ‘unarmed.’ Jerry Brown is either a complete moron or does have some form of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
No one is going to give up their weapons and ammunition clips. These laws will be overturned by the courts before they ever go into effect. If any of this were to go into effect, the only thing that Brown and the ‘demoncrats’ will have done is made this state more dangerous for law abiding citizens while strengthening the criminal element. Jerry Brown is the most dangerous governor in U.S. history. He and his ‘demoncrat’ bedfellows live in some make believe world where they think that laws like this will save lives. They won’t…they will only weaken an already weakened law abiding gun owners’ rights and leave law abiding citizens easy prey for criminals.
Until Next Time,

After completing book 17 in my 30-novel Iron Eagle Series, I have learned a great deal about terrorism – both foreign and domestic. I dealt with this subject matter head on in books three and four, Rome Is Burning and Operation Red Alert. While the stories are fiction, these novels show how terrorists really operate as well as what terrorism is really about.
The Truth About Terrorist Networks –
These people never work alone. They have mainstream supporters as well as those lurking in the deep web (TOR). I wrote about this more in depth in book nine, Rampage, which released this month. One need only read a news article or watch television to see the inspiration for these homegrown terrorists. The media is constantly hyping their acts of terrorism. Obama and the rest of the bleeding hearts get outraged every time one of these acts takes place. Then the federal government gets all riled up and talks of taking away guns from law abiding citizens and abolishing our second amendment rights.
What’s Really Happening Here –
First, violence breeds violence, as does hatred and intolerance. Killers get their 15 minutes of fame (granted, they’re usually dead), but they’re not the media’s target audience. It’s sad to say, but the real audience includes people or groups looking (and plotting) to outdo the last mass killing. This also accomplishes the direct goal of terrorism: to create a sense of terror within a target community.
The media stokes the fire of hatred and anger. Couple that with a weak president, a dysfunctional government, and a nation too busy posting selfies while one community mourns – and the wheels on the bus go round and round as the obliviously self-absorbed fail to recognize the danger going on right around them: a nation breeding hatred and terrorism that no one is going to stop.
It’s Time to Tune in for Real –
It’s easy to feign outrage and condemn barbaric acts while posting a photo of your lunch or sharing what your favorite celebrity is doing in the world of make believe. It’s easy to feign outrage against the machine, calling for or against gun control. It’s easy to cry out that we should abolish or amend the second amendment while scrolling through posts on social media. After all, it’s a safe haven. None of that is really going to happen, right?
While we passively and peacefully check our social status on the litany of social media platforms, the next mass killing is being plotted and planned. Soon, we’ll once again be outraged – for 15 minutes – but that anger will never lead to any type of resolution.
Is There a Way to Stop the Violence?
Man is at his core an animal. A mystic-loving creature who believes in God(s), rituals, and absolutes that in many cases lead to these types of situations. Can these events be stopped? Yes… but only through the use of logic, tolerance, education, and the necessary removal of one’s head from bibles and religious dogmas, so we can see each other for what we are – human beings with individual thoughts, feelings, and emotions with the right to live our lives the way we choose.
It sounds like wishful thinking, doesn’t it? Maybe that’s because it is.Roy A. Teel Jr., author of the 30-novel Los Angeles based Iron Eagle suspense, thriller, crime series.

Iron Eagle Series author, Roy A. Teel Jr. was quoted. Here’s an excerpt:
From unpublished research to financial influence, there are a number of ways clinical trials can be manipulated to get a new drug on the market.
For 12 years, Roy A. Teel Jr. was involved in human research trials at the University of California, Los Angeles, but he didn’t don a lab coat.
As a research subject with progressive multiple sclerosis, he was involved in five medical trials.
When his condition didn’t improve, he retired on disability in 2011. The whole ordeal left a sour taste in his mouth.

Hi all! I thought I’d share one of my latest interviews with you. It originally appeared on http://www.fiction-books.biz/meet-the-authors/new-on-the-shelf-at-fiction-books-this-week-79/. Enjoy!
“IT’S FICTION. DO I REALLY NEED FACTS?” by Roy A. Teel Jr.
As a novelist, I’m often asked, “How much fact is in your fiction?” The answer might surprise you – a lot. It’s one thing to sit down and write a story; it’s another to introduce real places and attractions into your scenes. In my 30-book Los Angeles based Iron Eagle crime novel series, one of the most important things I do is focus on real places and locations in and around Los Angeles. I also spend a great deal of time researching my subject matter. → Read more
