In October 2019, The World Economic Forum (i.e., the Boys from Davos), The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation & The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, in cooperation with the World Health Organization, the United Nations and the Centers for Disease Control of the US & China, met with a handful of top leaders of global corporations, government institutions & international organizations to simulate a novel coronavirus. They called it Event 201.
How did it play out? 65 million dead, global GDP down 11%, stock markets around the world down 20-40%. In the words of the Event 201 summary: “Economists say the economic turmoil caused by such a pandemic will last for years, perhaps a decade. The societal impacts–loss of faith in government, distrust of news and loss of social cohesion–could last even longer.”
A month later, a novel coronavirus crisis with many of the earmarks of Event 201 began to unfold and has just been classified by the WHO as a pandemic, prompting US President Donald Trump to declare a national state of emergency.
Interested in learning more about Event 201 and how the institutions who ran it see such a pandemic unfolding? Although none of the parties involved has taken the opportunity of this real-world pandemic to emphasize publicly any of the lessons learned from their elaborate and celebrated live simulation–despite the fact that some of the very individuals featured in the simulation are on the front lines of the real-world coronavirus crisis–what they concluded does seem to be consistent with the actual global response and is informative on its face.
Here are some resources including: Event 201 and it’s Call To Action; an invaluable collection of video excerpts from the event from Spiro Skouras; a podcast we did with Spiro on the topic; our terrestrial radio shows addressing Event 201 and the emerging novel coronavirus that so resembled the simulation (live broadcasts we suspect got The Monica Perez Show taken off the air in the CDC’s home city of Atlanta, despite the show’s increasing popularity and 8 1/2 years of honest, in-depth reporting); as well as the daily reporting we have done through our Propaganda Report podcast, Drivetime News Blast (DNB).

The Propaganda Report Feed where you can find our 30 minute daily show, Drivetime News Blast, where we have talked about the coronavirus on a daily basis since February 4 (though we first mentioned the coronavirus on the January 24 DNB and on the January 22 DNB we happened to discuss what the World Economic Forum / Davos is really up to & why it was founded). You can also find The Propaganda Report & Drivetime News Blast podcasts right here at www.thepropreport.com or on your favorite podcasting platform.
OUR CALL TO ACTION: Given that we have been deplatformed more than once, we fear it is only a matter of time before it happens again. Help us stay one step ahead by signing up to our email list. We may send out a weekly newsletter that you can opt out of, but mainly we just want a way to tell people where we can be found if we get taken down from more mainstream platforms. Thank you!
