Here's an odd story that really has me wondering, and I'll be right up front with what my suspicion is. My suspicion is that this "little" story might just possibly have something to do with this coronavirus outbreak. This story was shared by "B." and it has had me wondering for the past few days, and I finally decided to blog about it.

Here's the story:

CBP officers seize $900K worth of counterfeit U.S. currency

Here's the "gist" of it:

INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. ― U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the International Falls Port of Entry seized $900,000 in counterfeit United States currency Friday that was discovered in a commercial rail shipment originating from China.

“CBP officers strive every day to protect the United States from a variety of threats,” said Jason Schmelz, Pembina Area Port Director. “Those threats don’t always come in the form of terrorists or narcotics, but also in the form of counterfeit currency and other goods that have the potential to harm the economy of the United States. Thanks to the dedication of our officers and our partnership with the Secret Service, we were able to keep this currency from entering into circulation.”

Due to the vigilance of CBP officers, a rail container was referred for a Customs Exam Station inspection on Dec. 14, 2019.During the examination, CBP discovered 45 cartons of possible counterfeit currency in the form of $1 bills with a total face value of $900,000. The United States Secret Service was contacted determined the currency is counterfeit.

The counterfeit currency was seized and will be turned over to the Secret Service.

Needless to say, this has me thinking that perhaps this virus outbreak and this counterfeiting operation, which the article clearly implies is based in China. Would nations engage in the covert counterfeiting of a rival's currency? Sure. It's been going on all the time. Think of the vast coin-clipping operations in the Italian city-states, not to mention a "highly unusual coincidence" connected to Venice, the Fourth Crusade, and the Venetian counterfeiting of Byzantine coinage. Or think of the British counterfeiting the assignats of the French revolution, or for that matter, their counterfeiting of American colonial scrip. Or think of the Nazis' "Operation Bernhard," counterfeiting such good copies of British pound sterling notes that the entire issue had to be redesigned after the war and new types of currency issued.

However, there's something very odd about this counterfeiting venture. But to understand that "oddity" and why I think it might be something indicating a connection to the coronavirus story, we have to understand a basic feature of counterfeiting operations. Firstly, counterfeiters do not counterfeit things that do not exist. They do not, for example, counterfeit seven dollar bills for the simple reason that it would be a waste of time and effort. This basic fact has been at the core of my arguments that the various bearer bonds scandals - in which the denominated bonds are denounced as fakes and hoaxes because said denominations supposedly do not exist - are really indicative of the possible existence of a wholly hidden bond market. For those who know the story, think of Japanese Prime Minister Tanaka and the so-called "57 bonds."

Secondly, counterfeiters normally do not counterfeit bills in small denominations, but rather, in larger denominations that typically can be broken down into smaller (real) denominations. Typically, this has meant that counterfeiters focus on American bills of $20, $50, or $100 denominations. These are spent, or broken, for real currency, and thus the profit is made.

Thus, in this story, the counterfeiting of $1 bills is highly unusual, for it's an indicator that profit is not the primary motivation of whomever was ultimately behind the operation. But if currency were selected as the principal means of circulating as a biowarfare platform, it makes eminent sense, for $1 bills circulate widely and quickly, from the change in the grocery store line to tips given in restaurants, and so on.

There are to my mind four corroborating indicators that this high octane speculation may have some traction: (1) the timing of the find occurred in the time frame of the outbreak of the virus; (2) the seizure of the counterfeit bills notes the ultimate source was China, via Canada, and there has already been a Canadian side to the coronavirus story, (3) the rapid spread in the USA suggests perhaps that there may be vectors of delivery we're not being told about, and finally, (4) the seizure itself suggests that the US customs was already on the lookout for something. If I can suspect a potential connection of money as a delivery vector for a bioweapon, rest assured, so can the Chinese or American customs.

See you on the flip side...

    This is looking more and more like a “one trick pony”. The $1 bills seized last December – and the last time anyone wrote about the suspicious incident was the last of January when EVERYONE reported it.

    They’ve never revealed how they knew to target the shipment – or if the bills were contaminated with virus as no testing done.

    Get this: Shipment turned over to the Secret Service and no mention which one?

    Have ya’ll ever heard of Eurodollars? Why aren’t they allowed (in volume) in China?

  3. Danna on February 5, 2020 at 3:25 am

    There are so many containers coming in from China they don’t have the resources to check them so they let them come in unchecked. What made them decide to check this container and why the number 900,000.00, that’s amount is nothing. They can’t even manage to find the fentanyl and Carfentanil that’s causing the fake pain med hysteria as it pours in, why this. What is the meaning of number 9?

    • Danna on February 5, 2020 at 3:36 am

      The rich don’t carry money. Only the poor deplorable feeders carry small bills. If you use toot don’t you use a hundred bill or higher. Maybe this will help scare enough that we will have lower rates of nose herpes now.

    All plausible directions for possibility. Some more likely than others. Some of these possibility lines work better when combined with others.

    Money as bacterial vector.
    Money as viral vector (stick to soap and water – antimicrobials don’t work on virii).
    Money as chemical toxin vector disguised as biowarfare.
    Counterfeit as attention grabber.
    Economic takedown of the biggest manufacturing slave state.
    Physical attack on that state’s population as they realize how they have been exploited.
    Seems like one common thread in all these fabrics is increased centralized power, censorship power and all other things fascist.

    Now if someone can tie Epstein and all into this (perhaps through Harvard threads?), I will be truly impressed.

  5. Maatkare3114 on February 4, 2020 at 3:08 am

    I agree with Joseph, that the counterfeiting of $1 bills is ‘highly unusual and an indicator that profit is not the primary motivation of whomever was ultimately behind the operation.’
    I remember when I first started working in a local bank over 45 years ago, there was a boy who counted the paper money by licking his finger before counting the cash. He was told not to do this, but ignored the warnings. Not long after, he went off on sick, and was off for several weeks.
    When he returned, he was literally half the person he was before he went on sick. He had lost so much weight, and had been infected by so many pathogens he was lucky to come back to work at all. I have never forgotten it.
    Money has always been a disease carrier both paper and coins, however in this age of technology viruses also come in different guises.
    There will always be those who wish others harm and will use every means available, whilst accepting public ‘collateral damage’. They will always be prepared before beginning their campaign, and will ensure they are protected.

    Maybe the $1 bill was a trial run, time will tell.

    What a great way to ban cash. “Look everyone, we can’t have cash anymore because it’s been weaponised against us.”

    • cursichella on February 4, 2020 at 3:55 pm

      Excellent point.

  7. Richard on February 4, 2020 at 1:42 am

    Ruse maybe. Counterfeiters checking resolve at the borders and determining strategies around suspicion or routing away from apprehension. One doesn’t find time to get inside the proverbial head of the criminally bent as often as those border patrol folks are trained to do.

    One-dollar bill, a common exchange quantity for changing larger bills after purchases are more affordable in losing than the bigger ones while not spoiling the cover of shipment of the real item.

    Concerns as a medium for microbial transference by contact, coins and paper bills, are not anything new. The push toward plastic credit monetary transfer might have its roots with the danger of paper bills unless treatable from carrying pathogens unless copper or silver both of which have a propensity of reducing microbes to non-proliferating parts. That’s besides the other uses that electronic plastic currency affords to the carry.

    One effective measure of reducing acquired microbial flora from contact items is to wash the hands. A treated lotion can be applied afterwards that acts as a microbial barrier. Speaking of hands that thumbnail in the thumbnail photo with the micro sized Ben Franklin has an uncharacteristic appearance from the norm expected.

    At any rate, this should help; wash the hands; apply a microbial lotion as a deterrent to reduce cracking or chapping and sometimes called crazing (where the word crazy devolved from) if hand-washing tends to dry out the skin (frequent hand washing does this).

    Superior viable cell biology seems the best deterrence against malignant and premature cell degradation from outside sources and causes. If multivitamins are chosen ensure adequate mineral supplementation, too. . . . Oh, yes, get plenty of rest, drink enough fluids, consume bountifully those foods of high nutritive content but not to the point of gluttony and obesity, refrain from those vices that overly tax vital organs, and stay healthy. In one’s humble and quacking opinion, of course.

    I agree with WD’s comment (below) that the Chinese would be stupid to spread a virus that preferentially targets them . That would lead us down two other paths: (a) the ‘seizure’ is a false-flag effort to further demonize the Chinese, or (b) a different virus was on the one-dollar-bills.

    One method of tracking who benefits is the Catherine Fitts method of checking the Short Selling and Put Options in the days prior to the coronavirus hitting the news cycle. Assuming that this was ‘planned’, use the same methods as were shown effective in identifying the pre-9/11 Shorts.

    (It is beginning to look like the PTB have decided to crash the world economy via isolating China. Smash the commerce between China and the world, and you have a worldwide recession/depression. A good plague scare – real deaths or not – is a plausible-deniability way to do just that…)

    • goshawks on February 4, 2020 at 1:01 pm

      Similar thoughts from Benjamin Fulford (use discernment):
      “Huge anti-China campaign mounted after secret talks fail”
      “A massive hybrid warfare attack has begun on China following the failure of negotiations between Eastern and Western secret societies, sources close to the negotiations say. The attack on China is using a combination of bio-weapons, propaganda and economic warfare according to multiple sources. … This is the response of the U.S. Corporate government after it failed to find financing for a January 31st international payments deadline, according to European royal family sources.”

  9. Eve Leung on February 3, 2020 at 10:52 pm

    I totally don’t doubt the possibilities of using currency for bio-warfare, but my question is why don’t they simply use real 1 dollar note to spread the virus? Why go through all those trouble first create a batch of fake note than use it to carry virus.

  10. zendogbreath on February 3, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    More over, the infection does not need to be disease causing. Just existent. If it can be tested and traced back to the money while the CDC screams about past tragedies (alleged) like Zika, H1N1, 1918 and on, then we can burn all the currencies and make touching doorknobs illegal.

  11. Joe A. on February 3, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    Bravo Docteur, I couldn’t agree more.Just imagine the huge numbers that could be infected by these means.Hope that everyone is aware. .I ain’t using no cash any more,only cards.

    This means our masters are desperate to turn the whole World into debt peons. And have control over what we buy and sell well those of us who are still existing after they redd the earth of the rest of us.

    The Rune Tir is footnoted by a myth, of the deity Tir, who binds the wolf’s-head, Fenrir, that swallows the handshake.

    One must count fingers, after shaking hands with sharks and freemasons, because they cheat, steal and lie.

    Honor only applies, when there is a social contract. Without the Runes, there is none, only a deception.

    Too bad “the counterfeit patrol” was asleep at-the-switch on Christmas Eve 1913, when the Queen of counterfeiting virtually stole the U.S. sovereignty, all too near the stroke of midnight. Ironically, all it took was a few signature strokes of treasonous lust for money & power.
    Hence, the Secret Service was initiated to protect this official counterfeiting of the U.S. dollar.
    The irony is rich when reading the insert[in above context], at the beginning of the post concerning “dedication”.

    Now there’$ an angle that appears self-evident/$1 bills as biological warfare vector$. W/that in mind, what other devious vectors were brought into play. That there seems to be some warning as prelude to uncovering this operation; are other factors being kept secret?
    Possible deceptions?
    Too many to contemplate?

  17. Billy Bob on February 3, 2020 at 11:20 am

    Ug…again journalism without any real effort…why were they looking at this shipment, what prompted them, when was the last time counterfeit money was siezed…inference of facts because the money was in a container from China they did it…how do we know it was not planted? The speculations can go anywhere if the article simply reports an incident that happened. Should any of the standard: who, what, why, when, where and how is missing in an article (in my opinion) the information is probably designed to be a misleading form of propaganda or the journalist is compromised in some way as unable to report the whole event in detail….Perhaps someone got a request from Homeland for CPS to come up with an example of showing what they are to doing to protect the nation…..

  18. ragiza on February 3, 2020 at 11:09 am

    One dollar counterfeits is a huge red flag.
    Maybe that’s the only denomination the originator thought their process could get away with since nobody checks small bills, but that seems like a low probability.
    It will be easy for the USG to test whether the bills are contaminated and if they are, I think there might be a big effort to warn the populace, or to detect and withdraw bills from circulation. I doubt they could just sit quiet on this, if they are indeed being used as disease vectors.

  19. WalkingDead on February 3, 2020 at 10:54 am

    Yes, indeed, a game two or more can play. However, I have my doubts that the Chinese would create a bioweapon which would target their male population five times more than any other race and then try to spread it in the US via counterfeit one dollar bills.
    Many things simply do not add up with this to indicate it as an attack on anyone other than the Chinese. This could be a tit for tat operation hastily conceived, a little pay back, if you will, for the intentional release of this by someone who may have been inserted into, paid off, or compromised into releasing it from their own lab “accidentally”.
    They were onto the AIDS angle, Elisa test and AIDS drugs to detect and treat it rather quickly, which would indicate they were familiar with this particular virus which appears to have been around for some time in various labs.
    The fact that this mutated rather early on to a lower lethality in the outbreak would seem to indicate that it may have been a rushed job by whoever designed it and they failed to accomplish their goal, so far. Let’s hope it doesn’t mutate again into something far worse.

      Consider, China is currently suffering from African Swine Fever, Coronovirus, H5N1 Bird Flu, and H1N1 Swine Flu at the same time. They have their hands full at the moment.

  20. DanaThomas on February 3, 2020 at 10:23 am

    Mr. Global is so predictable: it is probably only a matter of time before “experts” start warning that paper money can transmit infections, in the attempt to impose a “cashless” system. It’s so much better to undermine the economy using computer viruses!

    • Jo S. on February 3, 2020 at 11:00 am

      My thought exactly. But add, an American would counterfeit 100$ bills but east Asians would make 1$ 100 times. No one considers 1$ at the registers. Perfect bio weapon. Intuition says not this time. Financial weapon, yes.
