3 Existential Threats That Could Devastate America

In recent years, there has been one enormous crisis after another.  We live at a time of major wars, global pestilences and billion dollar natural disasters.  There are several existential threats that we are facing right now which could potentially result in millions of dead Americans.  I wish that I was exaggerating but I am not.

Throughout human history, great pestilences have killed millions of people many times.

Today, our scientists are taking some of the deadliest diseases ever known to humanity and are purposely trying to make them "more infectious".  Here is just one example...

The US government is spending $1million of American taxpayer money to fund experiments on dangerous bird flu viruses in collaboration with Chinese scientists.

The research involves infecting ducks and geese with different strains of viruses to make them more infectious, and study the viruses' potential to 'jump into mammalian hosts,' according to research documents.

It is being funded through the US Department of Agriculture and collaborating studies will take place at sites in Georgia, Beijing and Edinburgh in Scotland.

Are they insane?

According to the CDC, bird flu has a death rate of more than 50 percent in humans.

And these researchers want to make it "more infectious"?

As I have repeatedly warned my readers over the years, this type of research really is an existential threat to humanity.

It is way too easy for an accident to happen, and once a dangerous bug gets out it can spread around the globe in the blink of an eye.

And the head of the WHO is warning that the timing of the next great global outbreak is "a matter of when, not if"...

The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) made yet another warning of an impending "Disease X" outbreak, with Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus telling world leaders it is "a matter of when, not if."

At the World Government Summit, held in Dubai from February 12-14, Ghebreyesus told attendees his previous predictions came to fruition in the form of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. Now, the W.H.O. director believes a new pandemic, for which the international community is ill-prepared, is on the horizon.

Renewing urgent calls for a global pandemic treaty to be agreed upon by May, Ghebreyesus dismissed suspicions of the treaty being a W.H.O. power-grab and called it "mission critical for humanity."

Of course strange diseases are already making headlines all over the globe.

Here in the U.S., we witnessed the first ever death from "Alaskapox" in late January...

An unidentified immunocompromised man died from "Alaskapox" in late January.

He lived in the woods of the Kenai Peninsula by himself, and it's unclear how he contracted the virus.

Alaskapox - from the same genus as smallpox and monkeypox - was first discovered in 2015 in Fairbanks and is more common in small mammals.

This is the seventh human case overall, the first outside the Fairbanks area, and the first to lead to death.

And it is being reported that there is a confirmed case of the bubonic plague in Oregon...

The first case of the bubonic plague found in eight years in one US state has been found - and is said to have come from a cat.

Oregon health officer Richard Fawcett told NBC News that the patient who caught the disease from her pet, became "very sick". Usually, this kind of infection starts with flu-like symptoms, such as tiredness, fever, chills, and a headache. But in Oregon, the infection had advanced to a draining abscess, called a "bubo", which is unusual these days.

Let me switch gears and talk about another existential threat.

According to 60 Minutes, the number of migrants from China that are crossing our southern border has gotten 50 times higher over the past couple of years, and a very large proportion of them are "Chinese males of military age"...

War correspondent Michael Yon and the Rubin brothers of have documented the presence of dangerous-looking elements -- from China, Iran, Syria and Venezuela -- among the hordes of migrants traveling up from Central America. Yon and the Rubins have noticed, among other things, that Chinese males of military age are traveling in packs of five to fifteen, are unaccompanied by family members, and are pretending not to speak English. Some of them, on their way to America, have performed Chinese military rituals.

The Chinese know that once they invade Taiwan there will be war with the United States.

Have they been preparing for such a conflict in advance?

Retired Air Force General Blaine Holt believes that is precisely what is happening...

"Tens of thousands of military-age men have come across our border and are now in America, organized by group and nationality" Holt told Gatestone this month. "Among them are terrorist and state actors, in particular, members of the People's Liberation Army of China. As we speak, these actors are training, making plans and obtaining weapons, watching our patterns, and learning our vulnerabilities."

"We are vulnerable to attack," Holt added. "Our enemies eagerly wait."

If a full-blown war with China erupts, vast numbers of Americans could potentially die.

Of course the same thing could be said about a full-blown war with Russia.

Dmitry Medvedev has warned us over and over again that the Russians will use nuclear weapons if they are pushed too far, and now he has issued perhaps his most ominous warning yet...

Dmitry Medvedev - a close Putin ally who served as president from 2008 to 2012 - said if a military defeat led to a return to the 1991 frontiers, when the Soviet Union collapsed, Moscow would unleash Armageddon.

'Attempts to return Russia to the borders of 1991 will lead to only one thing,' he said. 'Towards a global war with Western countries using the entire strategic arsenal of our state. In Kyiv, Berlin, London, Washington.'

Hypersonic nuclear missiles would also strike 'all other beautiful historical places that have long been included in the flight targets of our nuclear triad'.

He added: 'Will we have the courage to do this if the disappearance of a thousand-year-old country, our great Motherland, is at stake, and the sacrifices made by the people of Russia over the centuries will be in vain? The answer is obvious.'

Why won't our leaders take such threats seriously?

If a nuclear war happens, most of the U.S. population will not survive.

So perhaps we should see if there is any possible way to settle our differences with the Russians peacefully before someone crosses a line that will never be able to be uncrossed.

But instead, our leaders have decided that now is a great time for the most extensive NATO military exercises since the Cold War...

Aimed to prepare for a potential war with Russia, NATO's Steadfast Defender exercises have become the alliance's largest military drills since the Cold War, NATO's Military Committee Chair, Admiral Rob Bauer, told the Financial Times.

The experience gained during the Steadfast Defender exercises is expected to form the basis for NATO's plans to deploy and reinforce forces in Europe in case of war.

The exercises started on January 24 and will continue until the end of spring 2024.

This story is not going to end well.

But most of those in the general population do not understand anything that I have shared in this article.

They are just going to keep playing around and partying until time finally runs out.
