COVID AND MUSEUM CLOSURES
As you might have guessed, the world of "art" was for some reason one of the themes that emerged in this week's "in box". That's a bit unusual, because as most of the readership of this site is aware, I select articles to blog about from the mass of articles that people send me. In that sense, I suppose, this is a "community-driven" website, because even though I'm the one doing the "selecting", I do try to pay attention to the trends in the stories that people send. Why am I telling you all this? Because this past week, besides the "new normal" of stories dealing with the covid virus planscamdemic, there were, oddly, stories about art in one form or another. They stuck out like a sore thumb, and that's why I've been blogging about them, because apparently they stuck out like a sore thumb to the people who spotted and sent them.
That's especially true of this story which is about both the planscamdemic and art, which was shared with me by none other than Dr. Mark Skidmore, whom followers of this website or of Catherine Austin Fitts' Solari.com website will recognize as the university professor who has tracked and documented all that missing money in the government and published the results of his research in places like Forbes magazine. So, thanks to Dr. Skidmore for spotting and passing this one along, because there's something in this article that hit me like a body blow to the solar plexus; it's a short offering from Zero Hedge, and it takes a while for its "whopperdooziness" to sink in:
A Third Of US Museums "Not Confident" They Will Survive
The central premise of the short article is straightforward enough: most museums survive on sales, tickets, and so on, and not on government grants. Because of that, many museums may not survive as their sales are down because of the Fauci-Lieber-Wuhan planscamdemic. After all, who wants to pay money to wander around a museum with a feeder bag on their face, looking at Jackson Pollock messterpieces, right? Of course, I'm one of those who under no circumstances would ever pay money to see, much less own, a Jackson Pollock, even if it came with feederbag included. It does, however, raise the question of why the feederbag would be included, and I'm thinking along the lines of those paper bags in airline seats, but I digress.
Back to the article: after outlining the problems that the planscamdemic has created for museums, at the end of this article comes the following sentence:
To sum up, the great museum bust is dead ahead. Does that mean cheap art is about the hit auction houses and reverse lofty prices? (Emphasis in the original)
That was the body blow to my solar plexus, for once we get to the point that we acknowledge (1) the virus is real, and does kill, and (2) the dangers and numbers are inflated way out of proportion to the actual deaths, and (3) that it is the magic virus designed in conjunction with a media marketing campaign to induce behavior and policy changes and that (4) the whole thing is a planscamdemic designed to accomplish various objectives, then why not "cheap art" as one of the objectives?
That may sound like a tall order, and that my high octane speculation is way off the end of the speculation twig here, but in this case, it's not my speculation.
The body blow did its job. I had visions of some busybody billionaire, a squat, short, saggingly plump figure with Hermann Goeringesque designs on all the museums of western civilization busily gobbling up all the Rubens, Rembrandts, Caravaggios, and so on that he could, and stashing them away in some Karinhall-like mansion in New York, another nifty way to cut people off from their heritage and tradition, in addition to the time-tested methods of statue toppling and book-and-cathedral burning. In short, it niftily "fits" the cultural desecration unfolding around us.
A pleasant thought then intruded: what, I thought, would that boulder - yes, boulder - that the Los Angeles Museum of Modern Art paid millions of dollars for, net on the art auction market? I imagined the scene at the mansion of some Sillycon Valley millionaire, proudly displaying the rock. "Do you like it? It is the rock from the Museum of Modern Art in Los Angeles. The very rock! Right here in my very own garden!" "Uhm, if you'll excuse me, ma'am," I reply, "I think I need to take a nature break." Perhaps, I mused, this would be a way to remove all those Jackson Pollock messterpieces and other modernist eyesores from view? "There might be an upside to all of this," I fantasized as I eased my way around the rock and away from the rock-adoring countenance of my hostess. Call me a throwback, but I'd much rather look at paintings of dogs playing poker, and those paintings are a lot less expensive than LA's rock.
But then, my fantasies dissolved, because the reality is, that if Zero Hedge's speculation does occur, we know that those plump busybody billionaires are not going to be spending their money on rocks or messterpieces or the complete unpublished collaborations of Gertrude Stein and James Joyce. After all, they're the ones who largely helped create and currently fund the trashy anti-culture. Their Hermann Goeringesque appetites would prevail, and that's all they'd leave us with:
See you on the flip side...

This concept feels like the equivalent of the burning of the library at Alexandria.
Another concept coming through in all these news reports is famine. It rarely gets touched on and when it does it gets reported as a possibility in the future. It feels like everyone is highlighting the probability of famine while carrying heavy pretense that they are not talking about it.
For me from day all I thought about was famine. Was anyone else immediately aware that no civilization has ever quarantined the healthy? I immediately thought this is siege warfare. Famine is the entire point of siege.
From day one.
Wonder if they give quantity discounts.
Employers are requiring masks. Employees are getting tired of it. Local schools in Illinois are officially pushing back to November, 2020 for start of school. Support staff tried to start a pool to pick the day when school does restart. Unable to start a pool since everyone chose next year.
Museums: sometimes what they have in their storerooms is more intriguing that what is on display. And if it’s a private institution, they won’t be publishing that list.
The Smithsonian, for instance, had some articles it refused to show within its walls a while back due to the controversial nature of the items. Another museum was caught destroying artifacts because of what they suggested. If memory serves, they had to due with large humanoid like bones suggesting giantism as well as their age. But not just one set, either.
Good finds by Jim Stone:
‘Something’ incoming just before blast:
Satellite view before blast & aerial view after blast (note big, new, round crater to left of grain solo):
A couple of good videos on the explosion. Note a lot of tiny explosions before the big one…
BTW, The Saker is adamant that there was no nuke. He also notes that ‘arms depots’ tend to produce lots of secondary ‘cook-off’ explosions, none of which were evident. Just one Big boom and then a smoke cloud…
Overhead ‘before and after’ view of the dock area where the Big One happened. Note that the center of the blast seems to be exactly in the center of one of the shoreside warehouses. Also, two small ship moored adjacent are just ‘gone’…
(lifted from one of the many good comments below the Saker article)
“These attacks come as the judgment of the United Nations Special Tribunal for Lebanon is to take place on 7 August. It will in all likelihood be postponed.”
Conventionally-based stuff over at Ars Technica (plus over 200 comments):
Surprised those silos are still standing or, at least, what’s left of them. Very bad combination if true: grain silos in use, welding sparks from maintenance welder at work, ammonium nitrate (lots of it), and poor safety adherence to these activities and items in close proximity. It would seem that that phone videographer nearly lost his standing as that unexpected blast wave knocked him over. The distance away was noteworthy. Those satellite images are very revealing, indeed. Those silos might have spread the kinetic reaction like a very , very fast burn as some of the larger blast ricocheted back towards the docking area causing a localized Tsunami effect. A ship was hit.
Farmers know all to well the dangers of active grain silos, dust, sparks, flash fires, and explosions. It’s a good thing most practice enforced safety measures to reduce that collision of items igniting.
There’s likely not much left of anything in the immediate area of that massive blast wave for saving in any museum unless rubble containing contaminants is the focus of chaos of topic. The blast wave of the second to third explosion yielded a great deal of heat. Buildings leveled, debris tossed nearly a kilometer, heavy vehicles thrown meters upon meters, but Baalbek seems to be safe enough.
One was studying several points of interest the last several days regarding America’s Stonehenge, Stonehenge (UK), and markings relating to the ancient Phoenician’s at the New Hampshire site. If one was to draw a circumferential arc from America’s Stonehenge (New Hampshire, US), through Stonehenge (UK), one guess where it lands in relationship to the ancient Phoenician’s. . . . . Beirut. . . Odd sort of synchronicity if one dares to go there for speculative purposes, you understand.
The matter of the museums, . . . well, . . . there might be plans to turn them into documents for memory sake for what they harbor.
If they are going after the museums you know what they have in mind for the libraries. Think Fahrenheit 451 and if you have a private library expect an unfriendly visit from your local fireman come to torch your books and audio recording records CDs video-DVD collection. After all, we the beasts have no right to these tools of enlightenment and pleasure in the first place.
Anyone see the lights in the initial smoke column before the blast?
Meant to reply to Goshawks
google search produced – “now would be a wise time for companies to align themselves with nonprofits that their customers perceive as making the biggest impact on the community.”
these museums just need to find the right corporate sponsor.
All great art has something talismanic about it. Yes, it can be stolen, confiscated or made to disappear, but not without impunity.
In the Alpha Omega book I’m reading a major character works in a museum which is slowly being taken over by VR on-line mediums. The future of museums are being globally bulldozed into virtual reality online zones.
In todays case, the “magic” covid1984 everything lever, is being used to push anything[screwed-down included]into online-zones for more control and more profit. Orwell’s, “He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.”; is running rampage throughout covid1984 mask’s mass masquerade of megalomaniacal mania, all over the targeted NWO globe.
The logic is simple: believe in the magical covid1984, and it can do anything the NWO desires/ “‘No Sir, you’ll be inside’: Britons both dismayed and sarcastic, after discovering their homes may be BULLDOZED to fight covid19″84.
Of course those who were actually handling the covid1984 virus were suited up in a bio-level4 suit. But magically, now a simple dish wash cloth or baby’s diaper bag will do. But I talk truths.
Instead of Museum fire sale prices; they’ll probably pay public money to private owners to house priceless artifacts. Ah! The alchemical magic of covid1984. Are “we” sure this virus didn’t come out of an ancient lamp that was recently rubbed the wrong way?
A really major part of the plandemic op is economic destruction for the masses and further concentration of wealth at the tiptop of the global pyramid, so museums going under fits that pattern. My guess is art treasures (hard assets) at fire-sale prices being snapped up by individuals and corporations. But these ops are almost never done with just one purpose; destroying museums serves the destroy/transform-Western-culture part of the agenda.
As you mention, we useless eaters probably won’t be allowed to see real art in the future; any museums left will be pure VR. I can hear it now: “The virus has been found to linger on oil paintings . . . In the interests of public health, we will only be allowing a virtual-reality tour of the museum, either from the safety of your own home, or in 3-D at our site during non-curfew hours. Discount of 25% for those presenting an immunity passport. Unvaccinated individuals must bring their own hazmat suits.”
Why are we limiting these to “private” collections for entrepreneurs? Why not corporations, too? What if corporations were interested in building their portfolios with hard assets to reserve their wealth during a banking reset?
I’m no longer looking at this from a one size fits all model. The Nazi party and the Japanese military vacuumed the east and the west for such priceless treasures. One was know was acting as a corporation. In the case of Japan the situation might have been a similar operation–emperor or no. The other correlation is–they were both national entities. If we follow the purchases we may see similar behaviors among globalists.
Argh!!! “One was known for acting as a corporation.” Multitasking is such fun…
Love your warfare analyses; because, that in essence, is what’s going on. Biological in a theoretical sense; yet, non-sensical in it’s actual applications.
It’s bottom makes a lot of cent$.
We are witnessing an attempt to wipe Western civilization and all its cultural, political and social achievements, past and present, off the map. The degradation of museums/ galleries/libraries is just one mainfestation of this frontal assault, all being done under cover of the scamdemic; a fasct which will be erased from history in true 1984-style. We can see now why Italy was chosen as the centre of the European scam and why Notre Dame was burned; all part of the sacrificial deal which all governments are party to or at least complicit in. The Judeo-Christian principle of the Individual as Sovereign Creator with sole dominion over body and mind; in other words, ‘created in the image of God’ has been perverted into the concept of “white supremacy” by the FascistCommunists i.e. Western civilisation = European (white) and dominion (sovereignty/supremacy). Hence the attack on Christianity and proliferation of atheistic propaganda long favored by Communists for whom the State is God. By extension, the sovereign Nation State is to be replaced with sadisitic Communist collectivist hive 5g mind and its death-cult ambitions. Look at the difference in numbers of “cov” deaths in East vs West. Whilst I have no doubt there is figure-manipulation going on, the East is officially using using HCQ whilst the West is being denied it. with people being put on ventilators which kill them. I honestly people are being killed.
Apologies, my cursor is misbehaving so my post was prematurely dispatched. (Can we have an “edit” or delete button please ?)
I want to include a mention of deagel.com; a somewhat mysterious US military hardware/intel website which caused eyebrows to raise a few years back when it predicted massive depopulation by 2025 – almost all of it occurring in North America and Europe. The key issue they claim, will be migration out of US/Europe to Asia “the next move will see civilization being centred in Asia with China and Russia on top”. They also add that “a change in the economic paradigm has resulted in a death toll rarely highlighted by mainstream historians”.
I tend to agree with Miles on Modern Art. It is nothing more than money laundering. Why else would someone pay over $100k for a banana taped to a wall. It is, most likely, part of the pedo racket as well.
With that being said, I tend to agree with Goshawks on the explosion in Iran. There were clearly two detonations in this attack. One can assume the first to shout they weren’t responsible are most likely the culprits. My only question is why were they so inane as to store munitions in the middle of such a large city?
There was a huge grain elevator in the middle of this blast area also. It may have been the actual target in the middle of the covid starvation plandemic given that starvation is a very useful tool often used by those behind this as a method of removing masses of unwanted people. Just as weather warfare and flooding might remove a pesky regime in an Asian nation through starvation and the destruction of a dam or the resulting hordes of locusts due to wet weather. Plausibly deniable warfare.
We’re in for some rough times ahead where food security is concerned.
WD, that grain elevator angle is interesting. If this was not ‘initiated’ by an aerial bomb or a package bomb, grain elevators have been known to ‘spark off’ when there are high levels of grain dust. It is a near-instantaneous ignition of all the dust in a great “Whoomph!” That might have been enough to trigger-off any ‘energetic’ substances nearby. So, it is slightly possible it was an accident…
On the other hand, Somebody may have noticed the dust situation and decided to take advantage of it. They could even have disabled any dust-scavenging apparatus…
(And yes, storing large amounts of munitions – or even energetic substances – in the middle of a large city is basically a War Crime. Or, it is a calculated decision that your enemy will not strike those munitions because of collateral damage…)
I am going to bypass this article for a moment. An enormous explosion has devastated Beirut, Lebanon. Latest figures are around a hundred dead and few thousand injured (and climbing). Here is the best video which I have found:
As you can see, there was an ‘ordinary’ fire with billowing, light-grey smoke. Then, there was a ‘detonation’ with a white spherical cloud caused by a supersonic shock front. Finally, there was a rising column of reddish-brown smoke…
Both Israeli and Hezbollah sources have denied that this was an attack. However, Trump has said that it was an attack:
“According to them [“our great generals”] – they would know better than I would – but they seem to think it was an attack,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “It was a bomb of some kind.”

“Whatever else, the explosion was NOT caused by sodium nitrate. Sodium nitrate is an oxidant, i.e. mixed with other things – e.g., diesel oil, or flour or sugar or aluminum dust or glycerine or almost anything that will burn in air – it will make an explosive mixture. By itself, however, it does not explode.”

“Not to nit-pick, but some technical details are in order:
Ammonium Nitrate itself is not an explosive. You have to mix if with FUEL OIL. Then you need a detonator, flame alone won’t do it. So, the story seems fishy. Anyone with technical knowledge want to add anything?”
“ANFO makes for a cloud of white post-detonation smoke, iirc, not blood-red as shown. Others have suggested RDX in some form or another (ergo the distinctive smoke).”
“To every single person claiming this was a stockpile of ammonium nitrate blowing up:
The smoke cloud from such an explosion would be grey.
You know what puts up a dark brown smoke cloud?
Octagen, also known as HMX.
en . wikipedia . org/wiki/HMX
Guess what Octagen is used for?
It’s used for BOTH making missile warheads and as a solid rocket propellant.
So Iran, which runs Hezbollah, which runs Beirut, had missile warheads and rocket fuel stored in a warehouse; but of course they don’t want to ADMIT their new planned missile offensive just literally blew up on them, so we get this ammonium nitrate cover story.
Iran was all prepped for a new missile launching offensive, and it just got nipped in the bud.”
Any Sherlock Holmes in your blood?
Great analyses Goshawks!
Come on now. G is genius for being open and laying out facts for us. Holmes berated us and Watson the whole time while withholding vital facts until the end to revel in Watson’s Stockholmed admiration.
Sherlock & Watson’s been updated:
“Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century”.
Watson’s, now an AI robot.
I watched all 26 episodes; interesting plots, frames, & points of view being shown worldwide – to young growing minds.
Of course, there’s no copy-righted, masked Sherlock solving the covid1984 black/op.
High Five, goshawk!!! 😉
